Sonos Connect Wireless Music System

Product information

The Sonos Connect lets you play all the music you want, all over your house, on audio equipment you already own e.g. your home cinema receiver, stereo system, powered speakers, and more. 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. If you want a dedicated controller that everyone in the house can use, the touch screen Sonos Control is available separately. Got a desktop or laptop? Then use the Sonos Control for Mac or PC for added control. They all work together seamlessly so mix and match to your heart’s content.

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. You can even connect the Connect to your favorite audio source such as an iPod or CD player and listen on all the Sonos players throughout your house.

Q & As

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 28 reviewers.
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
Rated 1 out of 5 by Useless - no sound coming from my hifi I hooked up and programmed everything per the instructions meticulously, but no sound comes out of my speakers (my existing hifi system and speakers work fine on their own). The cables are all hooked up correctly. I can see the Connect on my controller app and it appears to be playing the music I have requested. My hifi system is set to Analog Ln. I called Sonos this evening and was on on hold for 30 min waiting for a rep before being abruptly cut off by a recorded message saying that it was now past hours. Useless product and useless customer service. I will be returning the Connect. 15 December 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Absolutely Brilliant After much internal wrangling I opted for this system over the B&W A5 (I have used their speakers/headphones for years). The deciding point was the WiFI drop off reported on B&W. I ordered a bridge, Play 3 and Connect (to use with the B&W speakers) yesterday, collected them today after work and within 2 hours of collection have a fully functioning system controlled from iPad, iPhone and iMac. It was so easy this could be a Mac product. Everything comes with all of the cables you need so no frustration there either. The connect works through my amp without issue and I can't, with the limited listening I've had, identify any quality difference between CDs and the Sonos. I was positively surprised by the depth of sound from the Play 3, which is a perfect unit for a bedroom/study. I am extremely impressed with this system and it is well worth the investment, just need to save up for some more units, and as usual JL delivered as promised. Nothing negative to say at all - if you're thinking about purchasing this think no longer you will not be disappointed. 08 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by works flawlessly There aren't enough 0's in the world to describe how many times better this is than my previous apple airport express. The sonos system works completely differently from airplay - instead the music being streamed from your ipad/mobile to your hifi (so subject to the limitations of your dodgy home wireless network) the streaming takes place directly on the connect device itself, which is hardwired to your network, and your ipad/mobile functions just as a controller to line-up the playlists. Consequently you have rock-solid streaming over ethernet, with no glitches or drop-outs or issues whatsoever. TIP: If you need the connect in a different room from your router use powerline adapters. 02 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sonos Connect I thought the Play 1 and 3 and 5 were the best additions to my household, until I bought this Connect, WOW. 25 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product! Simple and straight forward to set up with existing system. 21 January 2014
