About the Sonos Port
Use your existing gear with Sonos
Use your existing gear with Sonos
If your turntable has a built-in phono preamp, you can use the Sonos Port to wirelessly stream the audio signal to Sonos devices in other rooms.
Wouldn't it be great if you could play vinyl in the den and hear it through your Sonos One speaker in the kitchen? The Sonos Port can make it happen. The Port makes signals from your other audio components available for listening on your Sonos wireless multi-room audio system. And it can play your streaming music sources through just about any powered speakers or home audio system.
Music and more — anywhere you want it
Connect your disc player or turntable to the Port to enjoy vinyl or CDs — not only on the connected speakers, but throughout the house — wherever you have a Sonos player. (Your turntable needs to have a built-in phono preamp.)
Like all Sonos products, the Port works seamlessly with a host of streaming music services, including Spotify®, Deezer, and TIDAL. You also have access to thousands of internet radio stations with TuneIn and iHeartRadio. And if you subscribe to SiriusXM, you can listen to all your favourite programming on any Sonos player in your system.
Easy app control
You can use your smartphone or tablet to control any and all Sonos components in your system. Download the free app to turn your mobile device into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.
Compatible with Apple® AirPlay® 2
The Sonos Port has AirPlay 2 built in. That means you can stream audio directly from your iPhone®, iPad®, or Mac® computer through your Sonos system. That includes soundtracks from YouTube® videos and Netflix movies.
And if you subscribe to Apple Music®, you can do even more. Use Siri on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple TV 4K to control Apple Music with voice commands. Tell it what selection or playlist to play — and which Sonos speakers you want it to play through.

Sonos Port: The Sonos Port is a network audio player that can be used to add Sonos capability, with support for wireless multiroom audio streaming from a variety of online music services and AirPlay 2, to your existing home entertainment system that features a free analog or digital audio input. The Sonos Port is outfitted with a stereo analog RCA output and a digital coaxial (RCA) output to connect the network audio player to your existing stereo integrated amplifier, AV receiver, or powered speakers. You can set the stereo analog RCA output to fixed or variable, so you can adjust the volume level from your connected amplifier or the Sonos Port.
Sonos Wireless Multiroom Audio Eco-System: The Port is part of the Sonos wireless multiroom audio eco-system consisting of a family of wireless network speakers, players, and amplifiers. Start with a single Sonos product and add more Sonos products over time. With multiple zones, you can play the same or different songs in different rooms of your home. Compatible distributed audio sources include internet radio, online music services, local network music libraries, as well as hardwired inputs. Up to 32 Sonos devices and 16 groups can be connected in one system. The Sonos Port is compatible with the new Sonos S2 operating system (OS) and the older Sonos S1 operating system (OS).
- Sonos S2 OS Compatible Products: The Sonos Five, One SL, Roam, ARC, Beam (Gen 2), Sub (Gen 3), and any Sonos products released after May 2020 will only be compatible with Sonos S2.
- Sonos S2 and S1 OS Compatible Products: The Sonos Play:1, Play:3, Play:5 (Gen 2), Playbase, Playbar, Connect (Gen 2), Connect:Amp (Gen 2), One (Gen 1/2), Beam, Amp, Port, Boost, Move, and Sub (Gen 1/2) support both Sonos S2 and S1 operating systems.
- Sonos S1 OS Compatible Products: The Sonos CR200 Controller, Zone Player, Bridge, Connect (Gen 1), Connect: Amp (Gen 1), and Play: 5 (Gen 1) will only support the older S1 operating system.
- If you have both, older "legacy" Sonos products and newer Sonos products in your system, you have the option to create two separate eco-systems - one that will be controlled with the older Sonos S1 controller app and the other that will be controlled by the newer Sonos S2 controller app.
- Click here for more information regarding Sonos "Legacy" S1 versus the new Sonos S2 Operating System and App.
Dual Mono mode: The Sonos Port may optionally output dual-channel monaural sound instead of traditional stereo. Monaural sound is sometimes preferred over stereo for more even sound coverage in some situations (such as large or irregularly shaped areas with multiple listening positions and/or more than one pair of speakers). When in this mode, the same monaural audio signal is sent to both the left & right RCA outputs.
Mounting Options: The Sonos Port can simply be placed on top of stable flat mounting surface; such as a shelf, table-top, or piece of AV furniture. It is designed to be mounted horizontally (not vertically). You can fit three Port devices across a standard rack and take up only 1 rack unit of vertical space. There should be at least 2" of space around the Port for adequate ventilation. The Sonos Port does not wall-mount.
AC Power Adapter: The Sonos Port comes with an external AC power adapter that will plug into the back of the network audio player and into an AC power wall outlet or surge protector (sold separately). The external AC power adapter features an attached 6.5' cord.

Two Ways to Connect Wirelessly: In order to enjoy internet radio, online music services, your local network music libraries and Apple AirPlay 2, you'll need to connect the Sonos Port to your home's wireless network router and ISP (internet service provider). Sonos brings your great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project through WiFi or its SonosNet mesh network.
- WiFi Wireless Network: Sonos can also operate over your home's existing WiFi network (802.11 b/g/n/ac; 2.4/5GHz). Because you are connecting wirelessly to your home's existing WiFi network, you do not need to hardwire a Sonos Boost to your router/modem. The Sonos system's wireless range will be dependent on your home's existing WiFi network. Sonos products manufactured after March 2014 are loaded with the proper firmware and ready to go out of the box for WiFi connectivity. All Sonos products manufactured prior to that date will require a wired connection to facilitate a firmware upgrade and hereafter they will be able to work over WiFi.
- SonosNet Wireless Mesh Network: Sonos can utilize its own SonosNet proprietary wireless mesh network technology to provide superior wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensure synchronous music playback, and avoid sources of wireless interference. The transmitting range of the Sonos wireless system is approximately 100', depending upon your home's layout. In addition to the Sonos Port, you will need a Sonos Boost (sold separately) connected to your network router/modem via a Ethernet cable.
- You cannot connect the Sonos system via both the SonosNet proprietary mesh network and WiFi; you will need to choose one. Sonos recommends using its proprietary SonosNet wireless mesh network over WiFi when applicable.
- The Sonos proprietary mesh network will provide a more secure wireless connection with fewer interruptions for optimum performance.
- WiFi is subject to greater interference from other WiFi and 2.4GHz or 5GHz devices on your network.
Ethernet Port (10/100 Mbps): In addition to its built-in SonosNet Wireless Mesh Network and WiFi, the Sonos Port is also equipped with one Ethernet port (10/100 Mbps). Use it to wire directly to your router to operate Sonos if WiFi is unstable, or use the Ethernet port to provide Internet accessibility to non-wireless devices if you're using a SonosNET Boost setup.

Internet Service Provider: You'll need a high-speed, wired internet service provider connection such as cable, fiber, or DSL.

Using these types of connections can cause music to not play, skip, or cut out completely.
Network Requirements: Sonos can be configured in either a wireless or wired network setup. This article will cover the differences between the two setups and provide recommendations for which setup best suits your system and home network.
- Wired Setup: A Sonos system operating in a wired setup will require one of your Sonos products to remain connected to the router via Ethernet cable at all times. If your Sonos system is in a wired setup and you use a WiFi mesh router with multiple wireless nodes, we recommend wiring your Sonos product directly to the primary wired mesh node. Avoid wiring any Sonos products to the wireless mesh nodes. If you are on a corporate or advanced network, it must not block Spanning Tree Protocol (STP).
- WiFi Setup: All Sonos products can connect to wireless routers or access points that support 802.11b/g WiFi over 2.4GHz. Additionally, all Sonos products can connect to WiFi networks that use WPA1 and WPA2 Personal security standards, as well as unsecured WiFi networks. When running S2 software, many newer Sonos products support faster WiFi modes (including 802.11ac) and will connect to them when possible. You can learn more about which Sonos products support which WiFi modes, standards, and protocols in this article.
Notes: Unsupported network setups and devices include -
- Wireless internet connections such as satellite, mobile hotspots, or LTE routers
- Guest networks or networks that use a portal login page
- Networks using wireless range extenders2
- Ethernet over Power (EOP) devices
- WPA/WPA2 Enterprise
Sonos S2 Controller App: Sonos offers a Sonos Controller app for for Apple iOS 14.0+, Android OS 8.0+, Fire 7.0+Mac OSX 10.11+, and Windows 8+. The Sonos S2 is a new app and operating system (OS) that powers the next generation of products and experiences. In addition to new features, usability updates, and more personalization moving forward, Sonos S2 enables higher resolution audio technologies for music and home theater.
- Sonos Controller App Requirements: A compatible Apple iOS or Android device running the Sonos Controller app is required to set up a new Sonos system or add new products. Sonos also supports macOS and Windows versions of the Sonos Controller App, but certain system management features such as setting up a new Sonos system or adding new products, are not available. See this article for more details.
- Sonos Product Compatibility: Most Sonos products are compatible with S2. Some older Sonos "legacy" products will not support the advances of S2 due to their memory and processing power. The older Sonos "legacy" app is referred to as the Sonos S1 app. This article will break down which Sonos products are compatible with Sonos S2 vs S1.
- Split Sonos System: If you have both, older "legacy" Sonos products and newer Sonos products, you have the option to create two separate eco-systems - one that will be controlled with the older Sonos S1 controller app and the other that will be controlled by the newer Sonos S2 controller app. Read this article for more details.
Supported Audio Formats: Sonos supports a variety of audio formats for its 2ch stereo products and multichannel home theater speakers.
- Music Libraries: Sonos supports the playback of your own music library stored on a NAS drive or personal computer. Sonos supports compressed & uncompressed audio formats when streaming from your local music library. Sonos systems support mono (1-channel) or stereo (2-channel) audio files with sample rates up to 48kHz. Sonos music libraries are limited to 65,000 tracks. The memory limit can be reached prior to 65,000 tracks if there is a large amount of metadata. For example, classical music tracks tend to have a large amount of metadata and can use up the available memory before the 65,000 track limit is reached. If you have more than 65,000 tracks, you can use Plex with Sonos as an alternative.
- Home Theater: Sonos home theater speakers are compatible with a wide range of television and movie soundtrack audio formats. Compatible audio formats will vary by Sonos home theater speakers and by connection method to your TV. While most TVs are compatible with Sonos home theater speakers, some may need additional configuration or may not work with Sonos. This article will describe some basic requirements when using Sonos speakers with your TV.
