The real beauty of a Sonos system is not only how easy it is to use, but also how
easily it can be integrated in to your existing Home Entertainment system. No one
wants to scrap HiFi that’s still working & with Sonos you don’t have too.
Sonos can complement all of the following scenarios:
A household with only one stereo, probably found in the Living room.
A household with multiple stereos dotted around but not connected to each other.
A household with an existing Multi-Room audio system allowing music to shared around
A household with no audio system to speak of.
Using Sonos with your HiFi
Most people are likely have a HiFi system somewhere in the home. It doesn’t matter
if it’s 30 years or 30 days old, it could still be connected to a Sonos system.
Any HiFi or Home-Cinema with “Audio In”, “Aux”, “Line In”, “Tape”, “Cassette” or
“Video In” socket is able to have Sonos added to it.
By adding a Sonos Connect*, your HiFi will have the ability to play Internet Radio,
stream music from a subscription service like Napster & allow you to listen to all
the music that is stored on your PC, Mac or Network HDD.
Using Sonos with other speakers
If you already have Speakers that you would like to carry on using, or you have an
existing HiFi that has broken down, Sonos can fill the gap.
By adding a Sonos Connect:Amp* to your Speakers you will give them a fresh leash
This simple addition to your system allows you to play Internet Radio, listen to
music from a subscription service like Napster & enjoy all the music that is stored
on your PC, Mac or Network HDD. The Connect:Amp is also ideal drive speakers that
are mounted in ceilings, concealed in walls or mounted outside to bring music to
Expanding your system
Music is now more accessible than ever before which is driving people to listen to
it more often. As a result people want to listen to music in more rooms around the
The Play:1, Play:3 & Play:5 are fully self-contained amplifier & speaker systems*
that allow you to play Internet Radio, listen to music from a subscription service
like Napster & enjoy music that is stored on your PC, Mac or Network HDD.
The Play systems offer differing sizes and power output allowing you to tailor the
sound to suit the room they’re going in. They can be used as stand alone speakers,
as stereo speakers in one room or as part of a Multi-Room system.
Sonos in Restaurants, Bars or Pubs
Until recently providing ambient sound for your Pub, Bar or Restaurant involved having
to run speaker cables around the building and finding somewhere to hide the amplifier
& CD player.
Sonos makes things a lot easier
By placing Play:1, Play:3 or Play:5 speakers around your venue*, you can avoid the
speaker cables, avoid having a dedicated amplifier & CD player, plus avoid having
CDs littering the Bar or Till area. Volume is easily controlled by your office PC,
SmartPhone or Tablet & your music library is only limited by the size of your network
or PC HDD .
Another advantage is that you are able to have different audio playing in different
areas of your venue. This could be music in one place with TV audio in another, or
normal background music for the main bar while a private party have their choice
playing in the function room. Volume in each area is controlled individually, allowing
you to tailor the system for your customers needs.
By using environmental speakers with the Connect:Amp you are also able to add your
beer garden or smoking area to the audio system, creating the right atmosphere throughout
