Important Product Information booklet

Home Network: To access Internet music services, Internet radio, and any digital music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device, your home network must meet the following requirements:

  • High-speed DSL/Cable modem, or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection for proper playback of Internet-based music services. If your Internet service provider only offers Satellite Internet access, you may experience playback issues due to fluctuation in download rates.
  • If your modem is not a modem/router combination and you want to take advantage of Sonos’ automatic online updates, or stream music from an * Internet-based music service, you must install a router in your home network. If you don’t have a router, you will need to purchase and install one before setting up your system.
  • If you are going to use a Sonos controller application on an Android smartphone, iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, or other tablet, you will need a wireless router in your home network.
  • Connect at least one Sonos component to your home network router using an Ethernet cable, and then you can add other Sonos components wirelessly. Or setup your Sonos component wirelessly via WiFi without any hardwire connection.
  • For best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library collection to your home network router using an Ethernet cable.
  • Automatic Updates: The Connect allows for free automatic software updates so you will always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Simply register the Connect and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available. By simply pressing one button your system updates itself.


  • 2-Port Ethernet Switch: There are 2 female RJ-45 connectors for plugging in Category 5 Ethernet cables. You can connect a router, computer, or an additional network device, such as a network-attached storage (NAS) device. Specifications: 10/100 Mbps, auto MDI/MDIX.
  • Analog Inputs: You can connect an external source, such as a portable music player or a CD player, to the unit’s left and right RCA jacks. The input jacks automatically detect a device is connected, and the source appears in the system. Music from the external source can be played in any zone. The volume is controlled by the Sonos Digital Music System, however, the playback (pause, music selection, etc.) must be controlled at the source.
  • Analog Outputs: The Connect is equipped with stereo RCA jacks for connecting the player to a separate amplifier or receiver. The stereo RCA jacks have a variable audio output, with the volume controlled by your wireless controlling device (iPhone, iPad, etc.), Sonos controller or the Connect’s front panel volume controls.
  • Digital Outputs: The player has both coaxial and optical digital outputs for connecting the unit to a receiver or amplifier with digital inputs.
