Every room sounds different.

Walls, furniture, where you position your speaker – they all impact the acoustics in a room. And the sound quality of your music.

Thanks to Trueplay, that’s changed.

True to the music. Right for the room.

Trueplay makes your Sonos speaker even smarter. It uses your iPhone or iPad to analyze the room, then literally adjusts how each woofer and tweeter produces sound.

So you hear the music you love, custom tuned to the room where you’re listening.

Let’s Trueplay tune your speaker.

It takes just a few minutes and an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Move smooth and cover the whole room.

Don’t adjust the volume.

Your speaker will make some loud noises. They’re key to the process. So don’t lower the sound.

Your music, custom tuned.

Trueplay uses your Sonos app and the microphone on your iPhone or iPad to measure how sound reflects off walls, furniture and other surfaces in a room.

Then it makes some precise acoustic adjustments to your speaker – sometimes large, sometimes small – to make sure you always hear the purest sound possible. With nothing added and nothing lost. Just a spot-on playback of the song the artist sent your way.
