Product information

Just connect it to any amplified audio device in any room and it’s instantly part of your wireless Sonos multi-room system.

Got an iPad, iPhone or iPod touch? Simply download the free Sonos Controller app and turn it into a full-fledged Sonos Control that works over your home WiFi network.

The digital and analogue outputs, connected to your sound system, deliver superior sound. And when it comes to volume control, you’ve got a choice: via the Sonos or directly on your audio equipment.

The Connect liberates the music on your computer and the Internet so you can play it all over the house. Wherever there’s a player, you can listen to your entire collection of iTunes music, plus thousands of free Internet radio stations. And it works seamlessly with the most popular music services so you can stream millions of songs and stations from the Internet to the rooms of your choice.

About Sonos

This California-based company has spent most of its near 15-year history selling high-end speakers to studio professionals and cash-rich audiophiles. Their flair for sublime sound engineering led them to break the mainstream market in 2013, with their wireless Multiroom range.

Cracking a balance of simplicity, stunning sound and game-changing tech, Sonos has since become a key player in the home audio market. They’ve adapted their studio-quality pedigree into an affordable range, that delivers house-filling sound for more casual listeners. Supplemented by a slick app, Sonos is one of the market-leaders in Multiroom technology.

Q & As

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 33 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by On the quiet side and pricey I bought this Sonos connect to work alongside my Sonos 1 and Sonos 3 speakers so I could listen to the same music in my living room as elsewhere in the house, but using my existing amp and speakers. Unfortunately, the output of the Sonos connect is MUCH quieter than, for example, a CD player. Consequently, when trying to balance the sound between rooms, the volume on the Sonos controller needs to be close to the maximum for the connect to produce the same sound in the living room as the other Sonos speakers set near their minimum. Since there is no way to adjust the output level of the Connect, the only way to correct this is to crank up the volume on the amp. Unfortunately that means a unpleasantly loud surprise when the source is switched back to the CD player or TV if I forget to adjust it back down again after listening to the Sonos! It also defeats to object of a music device controlled via a tablet if you have to manually adjust the volume... It's also quite expensive, considering it is basically a Sonos 3 without the speaker bits. Other than that, it's great! Looks nice and works well, accepting the above gripes. 27 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very useful for wireless presentations Excellent product - makes computer presentations with wireless sound easy to set up. 11 August 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it says on the box. A really good product, if somewhat slightly overpriced for what it does. The only reason it's not a 5 star rating is twofold: First if you directly connect an existing hifi (from the amp) via the line-in to the Sonos connect and have Sonos wireless speakers in the same room (I added two Play 1s) as the existing hifi setup there is a very slight delay on the wireless speakers that make the music unlistenable (in my opinion) in that room. The only way I found around this was routing the line-in to the Sonos Connect via a mixer (so the amp signal doesn't go straight to the wired speakers); not an ideal solution but it works. Second if you live in an area with a high density of wireless signals (I live in a 3 storey block with 10 flats and each flat probably has it own wifi network) there is regular wireless interference on the Sonos network that causes signal dropout to the wireless speakers, which causes music to stop playing intermittently. This problem can be managed slightly by changing Sonosnet channels but it doesn't go away completely. I wasn’t aware of these issues before I bought the Sonos products. Neither is catastrophic but they make my Sonos experience less elegant than it could be. 06 August 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Connect worth it's weight in gold! I was always a little sceptical about Sonos stuff and the reviews it was getting online but I am now a big fan of the quality and thought that has clearly gone into the products having bought this. My wife is now regulaly listening to various foreign language radio stations (as she is fluent in several languages) and adores the Connect and how easy it is to use the Sonos app on her phone to choose what she listens to. I have the Sonos Connect linked to a hard drive (music files in folders which was simply a copy of iTunes music folders) with the Sonos connected to my stereo hifi amplifier via a digitial coaxial cable. My stereo amp has it's own rather special built in 'digital to analogue convertor' (DAC) so the Connect is really just a music / online radio streaming device into my hifi set up and it's simply brilliant and just so convenient to stop/start and choose music on my iPhone. Alternatively you could simply use the left/right analogue outputs on the Connect box to connect to an existing amplifier as if you were connecting a CD Player and let the Sonos work it's magic or buy some wireless Play speakers and away you go. Really can't praise the Sonos Connect enough for it's connectivity options as it's now very much a core piece of electronic gadgetary in our home we use every single day. 17 June 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect set up Having spoilt myself with a top end Hi-fi system, I was struggling with their awful Android app for streaming. This was the perfect answer, connected by leads to their amplifier means that I can now stream all my music from my NAS drive as well as on-line radio via the excellent Sonos App. I already have a Sonos playbar and sound system in another room and this was a doddle to set up. 17 June 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 Utter junk - avoid at all cost I bought a Sonos system through John Lewis a few years ago and it has been nothing but utter pain and misery since then. Sometimes it works, then for no reason whatsoever it stops working, usually when you have friends round and you want to hear music. Sometimes it just doesn't recognise the system at all. I have spent endless evenings and weekends on the phone to Sonos support in the US. The best they could do is move my music folders out of itunes - that worked for about 2 months, now it doesn't work. I think there are two fundamental issues with this product: 1. It creates its own wi-fi network and this just isn't robust and 2. It doesn't really integrate with Apple, this may in part be down to Apple, but if you want to use itunes to manage your music then you are stuffed in my experience. If you are considering this - go and look at their support forums and you will see I am not alone. 19 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Connect Really great system which allows you to stream the Deezer premium digital service to the Hi-Fi. Definitely worth purchasing but high quality ripped uncompressed music files fed through a high end dedicated Hi-Fi streamer are superior in quality. 13 May 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but expensive ... The whole SONOS concept , product and quality is great but this seems pricy when set against the other products with speakers included however I wanted it to connect to existing hifi separatez 03 February 2015
