Select a location

You can put your speaker just about anywhere. Here are a few guidelines:

Auto Trueplay

You can put Sonos Move just about anywhere. Auto Trueplay tuning optimizes the sound for wherever you are and whatever you’re listening to. Your speaker’s microphone is used to detect the environment so auto Trueplay can make periodic tuning adjustments to deliver the best sound.

If you don’t want the microphone on all the time, be sure to turn it on whenever you move the speaker. Your Sonos Move starts retuning when you pick it up, and continues to adjust the sound for a few minutes after you place it in a new location.

Note:Auto Trueplay is disabled while you’re using Bluetooth.

Microphone on/off

The microphone is used for voice control, and for auto Trueplay tuning. Touch el_rey_microphone.jpg to turn the microphone on or off.
