In 2002 Sonos set out with a simple goal – reinvent home audio for the digital age and make listening a valued experience once again. What if you could fill every room in your home with the music you love? Sonos Speakers make it easy for every member of your family to listen to their favorite music in whatever room of the house they choose. Audio Den is your music systems expert on Long Island, the Hamptons and New York City.
The Nuts and Bolts of the System
Sonos offers a family of HiFi wireless speakers and audio components. The system unites your digital music collection, with a vast array of online streaming services. All of these music sources are controlled with a free, intuitive app that is available on any iOS or Android device. Play what you want, when you want in every room of your home. No more disagreements with your family about who gets to control the music. Instead each member of the household gets control of his or her own music, allowing each user to easily edit and save playlists, shuffle and repeat songs, and access all the music from one centralized location.
The Sonos Controller app lets you browse and play your music from your smartphone, tablet, or computer. Stream different songs in each room, group rooms together, or hear the same tune everywhere. Plus, you can access all your music no matter where it lives; add iTunes, podcasts, radio stations, Spotify, Pandora, and SiriusXM with a only a few taps of your finger.
Start Small or Go Big
The Sonos family of speakers is designed to provide music for all the different spaces in your home. From the compact PLAY:1 to the TV-compatible PLAYBAR, each speaker will fill the room with crystal clear HiFi sound. Because Sonos is a modular system and offers a variety of speaker options, you can start with a single room and add more over time.
The Sonos PLAYBAR is a nine speaker sound bar designed to provide full-theater sound for any TV with an optical digital output. Add the Sonos SUB to the PLAYBAR and you’ll feel every chord, kick, splash and explosion. Both the PLAYBAR and SUB are simple to set up and integrate seamlessly into your existing Sonos system.
Simple, Intuitive Set-up
Getting started with Sonos is painless, and now you have two wireless options to ensure reliable performance of your system.
Option A: Sonos on your home WiFi
Start with any Sonos speaker, connect to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos app, and enjoy music in any room in perfect sync.
Option B: Dedicated Sonos Wireless Network (for use where WiFi is unreliable)
Connect any Sonos device to your router. The Sonos system creates its own wireless network that all of the Sonos devices will use to communicate with each other. Your non-Sonos devices will use your home WiFi network – your Sonos system uses its proprietary network, eliminating interference and increasing range. With a dedicated Sonos network, you’ll have solid connectivity no matter how large your home or how many devices you use.
