FAQ

How is Port different from Connect?
Port is the successor to Connect, delivering richer sound and extending Sonos’s sound platform to your traditional home audio equipment. Port includes an updated digital-to-analogue converter for clearly detailed sound and a 12V trigger, which automatically turns on your amplifier in order to more reliably initiate playback. Port also allows you to control content using Apple AirPlay 2 and features a versatile design compatible with a standard AV rack.
What’s the difference between Port and Amp?
Whilst both Port and Amp offer streaming capabilities and allow you to bring your wired speakers into the Sonos system, the main difference between the products is amplification. Amp powers passive speakers, such as in-wall or in-ceiling speakers. Port cannot power audio equipment, which means it requires either a powered amplifier or powered speakers.
Do I need Port if I only plan on using Sonos wireless speakers?
No. Sonos wireless speakers, such as Sonos One or Beam, can connect directly to the Sonos system over WiFi without Port.
Can I use my voice to control Port?
Port supports voice control with either Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant when connected to a voice-enabled device, such as Sonos One, Beam, Amazon Echo Dot, or Google Home, over WiFi. Voice control features are subject to regional availability.
Can I connect Port to my turntable?
Yes, you can connect Port to your turntable to stream vinyl to Sonos speakers throughout your home.
What do I need to use Port with a turntable?
You'll need a turntable with a phono preamp as well as speakers. Plug in a standard audio-in connection to the back of Port. Then, in the Sonos app, go to Browse and select Line-in to control the sound.
Does Port improve the sound quality of speakers?
Whilst overall sound quality factors in the internal components of your speakers, Port’s new digital-to-analogue converter ensures that streaming sound to traditional speakers is as clearly detailed as possible.
Does Port have touch controls?
Port is typically connected to a stereo or receiver with volume controls. To avoid two separate volume adjustments for the same system and to keep it as simple as possible for the listener, Port does not have touch controls.
Can I connect Port directly to a TV?
Port is not designed to be used with a TV. Port has an analogue audio input, which you could wire into a TV to stream audio to any Sonos component or speaker. That said, the line-in isn't designed for use with a TV and will result in some latency or lip sync issues whilst the audio is converted from analogue to digital. Products with digital connections, such as Playbar, Playbase, Beam, and Amp, are recommended for use with a TV.
Can I connect Port to a third-party receiver or amplifier to power a set of rear or surround speakers?
Port does not power rear or surround speakers.
Can I connect Port to a third-party soundbar?
Port can be used as a streaming source for a third-party soundbar using either the RCA output or the digital coaxial output.
If I don't use hardwired speakers, how else can I use Port?
Port’s RCA input can connect turntables, CD players, iPods, DACs, and other audio devices, allowing you to steam vinyl, CDs, and locally-stored audio files to wireless Sonos speakers throughout your home.
What is Bluetooth Low Energy and how does Port use it?
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) creates a wireless personal area network so that Port can temporarily communicate with your phone or tablet to simplify the first-time setup process. Once setup is complete, Port relies on WiFi for streaming and updates.
How do the new processor and increased memory affect the product experience?
Currently there are no feature differences between Sonos One Gen 2 and the original version. The original Sonos One will continue to support all its current features, and more, in the future. Over time, however, the increased memory, Bluetooth Low Energy, and processing power may allow us to bring new product experiences to the Gen 2 version that the original will not be able to support. That said, we have no specific Gen 2-only features planned at this time.
Will Sonos One Gen 2 work in stereo pair and as surrounds with the original Sonos One?
Yes, the Gen 2 works seamlessly with the original Sonos One as a stereo pair or home cinema surrounds.
How does Sonos One Gen 2 use Bluetooth Low Energy?
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) was first introduced with Sonos Beam, and now we are bringing it to Sonos One Gen 2. Just like with Beam, BLE can be used to communicate temporarily with your phone or tablet to simplify the first-time setup process. BLE does not support audio streaming. Once setup is done, Sonos One Gen 2 streams and updates via your WiFi just like the original Sonos One.
How can I tell which version I have?
Sonos One Gen 2 is marked as “Gen 2” on the product label underneath the speaker. The original Sonos One only has “One” on the product label.

Reviews

Can't I just use my personal music streaming subscription?
You’ll still have to pay licensing fees to use music in your business. Additionally, if you want to get rid of the ads that interrupt the music, you’ll need to pay for a premium subscription on most services. It’s usually more cost effective to subscribe to a music streaming service for business use.
Why do I need a commercial music streaming service?
Composers, musicians, and artists deserve fair compensation, especially when their music offers extra value to your business. As a business owner, you’re legally responsible for paying license fees for music you play in your venue.
What is considered a public performance?
The Copyright Law of the United States defines a public performance of music as, “Music performed in a place open to the public or at any place where a substantial number of persons outside of a normal circle of a family and its social acquaintances is gathered.”
What are Performance Rights Organizations?
BMI, ASCAP, and SESAC are known as the Performance Rights Organizations (PROs) that represent songwriters and music publishers in the United States. If you play music licensed by one of these organizations and don’t have a license from them, you can potentially be held liable for copyright infringement, which can result in thousands of dollars of liability as well as costly legal fees.
