    • Wireless, multi-room control from the palm of your hand

      Integrated, multi-room control

      Control what music is playing in every room in your house, from anywhere in your house. Sonos Controllers aren’t tied to a specific Sonos player, so you can use any Controller to control the music and the volume in all your rooms. Everything about the SONOS CONTROL – from the touch screen display to the dedicated buttons – is carefully designed to make finding and playing your music a snap.

      Multi-room playback options

      Wirelessly play the same song in every room of the house – perfectly synchronized. Or, mix it up and play different songs in different rooms.

      See what’s playing anywhere in your house

      The Now Playing screen gives you a detailed view of what’s playing, complete with full-color album art, elapsed time of a song and more. Press the Rooms button to see an overview of what’s playing in each room of the house. Group your rooms together or play different songs in different rooms – without interrupting music playback.

      Volume control — for every room

      Change the volume in one room or many rooms, all from the same screen. If music is playing in multiple rooms, just slide your finger across the screen to set the perfect level in every single room.

      SonosNet wireless mesh network

      Enjoy the best wireless performance of any networked music product on the market, thanks to SonosNet, our secure AES encrypted wireless mesh network. SonosNet extends the range of the CONTROL and avoids sources of wireless interference by communicating with the closest Sonos component, rather than through one distant access point like most other wireless solutions. The CONTROL also has multiple antennas to provide great wireless performance.

      Queue-based music playback

      You can queue-up music to play next while listening to what’s playing now – then hand the Controller to someone else to pick the next song.
