Ethernet ports (2)

You can use an Ethernet cable (supplied) to connect to a router, computer, or additional network device like a network-attached storage (NAS) device.

LED indicators:

Flashing Green (network activity)

Yellow (link connection)

AC power (mains) input

Use only the supplied power cord (using a third-party power cord will void your warranty).

Analog audio in

 

Use a standard RCA audio cable (supplied) to connect the audio outputs from a separate audio component, like a pre-amplified turntable, to the Sonos Connect’s analog audio inputs.

Analog audio out

 

Use a standard RCA audio cable (supplied) to connect the Sonos product’s analog audio outputs to the audio inputs on a separate audio component, like an amplifier or your home theater receiver.

TOSLINK digital audio out

 

You can use a TOSLINK optical audio cable to connect the Sonos Connect’s TOSLINK digital audio output to the audio inputs on a separate audio component, like an amplifier or your home theater receiver.

Coaxial digital audio out

You can use a digital coaxial cable to connect the Sonos product’s coaxial digital audio output to the audio inputs on a separate audio component, like an amplifier or your home theater receiver.

Connect the cables

Connect the power cord

Attach the power cord and plug in the Sonos Connect.

If connecting to powered speakers

You may need a Y-adapter audio cable (one 1/8" stereo miniplug to dual RCA male connectors) to connect the computer’s speakers to the audio outputs on the Sonos product. If your speakers have a male 1/8" stereo plug, you’ll need to attach a female-to-female coupler between the speaker plug and the Y-adapter audio cable.

If you don’t have the app, download it from the app store. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system. See Getting started.

If connecting to a home theater or amplifier 

ALL_amplify_zp90_nolabel.jpg

If you don’t have the app, download it from the app store. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system. See Getting started.

If connecting to a computer

You’ll need a stereo mini to RCA Y-adapter audio cable (one 1/8" stereo miniplug to dual RCA male connectors) to connect the Sonos product’s analog audio output to the computer’s audio input.

If you don’t have the app, download it from the app store. You’ll use it to set up and control your Sonos system. See Getting started.

Line-in

Connect an external source like a phono preamp (your turntable may have a built-in phone preamp), or other audio device. Learn more.

Line-out

Control volume from your AVR or amplifier (fixed line-out level)

Set Connect’s line-out level to Fixed if you want to control the volume exclusively from your AVR or amplifier. You won’t be able to use the Sonos app to adjust the volume or equalization settings.

Go to settings and choose Fixed for the Line-Out Level.

Control the volume from Sonos (variable line-out level)

When Connect’s line-out level is set to Variable, you can use the Sonos app to adjust the volume.

  1. Adjust your AVR or amplifier’s volume to your typical listening volume.

  2. Make sure the line-out level is set to Variable. If it’s not, you’ll need to change it:

  3. Use the Sonos app to adjust the volume so you can hear music on your Sonos system. It may need to be turned up fairly high.

  4. Readjust the volume on your AVR or amplifier so it falls within your typical listening range.

Use Sonos to control the volume on your home theater or amplifier

When Connect’s line-out level is set to Pass-Through, Connect stays at a fixed volume and sends volume commands to your amplifier. You can control volume using the Sonos app, a universal remote, or your voice if you have a voice assistant enabled.

Note:Make sure your amplifier supports Pass-Through. If you set the line-out level to Pass-Through and your amplifier doesn’t support it, you won’t be able to control the volume.
