How does the sonos system work

The Sonos Multi-Room Music System lets you play all the music you want, all over your house and control it all from the palm of your hand. With wireless ZonePlayers in the rooms of your choice and a Sonos Controller in hand, you can add music to every part of your life and every room in your house. Sonos gives you instant access to millions of songs and stations — including music files stored on your computer, thousands of free Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services. Simply grab a Controller and pick a room, pick a song and touch play.

The Sonos Multi-Room Music System lets you play all the music you want, all over your house—from the bedroom to the backyard—and control it all from the palm of your hand. It’s the first wireless multi-room music system of its kind and it’s going to change the way you listen to music at home. With a Sonos Controller in hand, your entire music collection, Internet radio and online music services are at your fingertips. And with Sonos ZonePlayers in all the rooms where you want music, you can simply pick a room, pick a song and touch play.

The key to designing a music system that plays music all over the house is having a wireless network that works allover the house. That’s why Viable Technologies chose the Sonos Wirless Music System.  Sonos created a wireless mesh network called SonosNet to deliver the range and performance required of a multi-room music system. When you need to stream music wirelessly, the network you use really matters. When a network is overloaded or stretched to its limits, you hear echoes and delays from room to room, and your Internet speed can be sluggish. Not so with Sonos.

Sonos chose a mesh network because a traditional network with a central hub relaying all the traffic didn’t provide the house-wide coverage we wanted. What’s more, access point networks were plagued by performance issues. SonosNet changes all that — providing the extensive range and superior performance you need to enjoy music in every room without requiring a massive wiring remodel.

Wireless that works like magic.

Sonos takes wireless to a whole new level. Our mesh network technology provides whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. Which means the music gets to all the right rooms – near or far – at exactly the right time.

The key to designing a music system that broadcasts music throughout a house, building, or complex is having a wireless network that works all over.

Viable Technologies offers a system that uses a wireless mesh network to deliver the range and performance required of a multi-room music system. When you need to stream music wirelessly, the network you use really matters. When a network is overloaded or stretched to its limits, you hear echoes and delays from room to room, and your Internet speed can be sluggish. Not so with our system.

We chose a mesh network because a traditional network with a central hub relaying all the traffic didn’t provide the system-wide coverage we wanted, or our clients needed. What’s more, access point networks were plagued by performance issues. The system we use changes all that — providing the extensive range and superior performance you need to enjoy music in every room without requiring a massive wiring remodel.

When it comes to playing music, we believe all rooms should be created equal. That’s why you can put ZonePlayers in absolutely any room where you want music — either connected directly to speakers or to your home theater and stereo system. With our system, no room is off-limits and you can add music to practically any number of rooms: conference rooms, offices, bedrooms, the backyard, bathrooms… ANYWHERE.

Music in your hands

Viable Technologies puts the control of all your music and all your rooms right where it should be — in your hands.

Create a playlist to cook by. Browse your entire collection or use search to find your favorites. Tune in to a radio station halfway round the world. Share the Controller with friends. But be prepared, because once they get their hands on it, they’ll have a hard time letting go.

A multi-room system that’s flawless, flexible and fun.

At Sonos, multi-room is our mantra. We don’t think about individual pieces of hardware or software. We think about the system as a whole and how to flawlessly deliver synchronized music to every room with total flexibility and total control. Plus, we made it easy to add more rooms of music without adding wires. Now what could be more fun than that?

The reason Sonos works so flawlessly all over the house is because we designed a complete multi-room music system from the ground up. From the flexibility of our ZonePlayers to the ubiquity of our handheld and desktop Controller, no other company gets multi-room music like we do. Our system lets you play the same song in different rooms with perfect synchronicity. Or you can play different songs in different rooms and please everyone in the house.

When designing the Controller for the system, multi-room remained our mantra and fun was our goal. With Sonos, music lovers have the freedom to use any Controller they want to control what’s playing all over the house, which includes controlling the volume in each and every room. And everything about using the Controller, from searching for your favorite songs to creating the perfect playlist, is fun…because that’s the way music should be.

Music from every source imaginable.

Sonos plays it all — from your personal collection of computer-based music files to Internet radio and the most popular online music services featuring millions of songs and stations.

You can play it all:

…Music from your personal collection stored on your computer
…More than 25,000 free Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts
…Music services that let you stream and download their vast collections of songs from the Internet to the rooms of your choice

We give you the freedom to listen to whatever you want, wherever you want. Play a classic album from your music collection in the kitchen and the living room. Wake up to a local radio station in your bedroom or tune in to a podcast from another continent. Whatever you’re into, rock or rap, interviews or instrumentals, Viable Technologies gives you instant and endless music gratification.

Your Music Collection

If you have a hard drive already filled with digital music or a CD collection just begging to be digitized, you’re in luck. Liberate all that music from your computer and enjoy it in every room. Our system supports all the most popular audio formats, and we make it easy to play music from other audio sources, like an iPod or CD player.

Give your personal music collection plenty of room to roam. You can store your entire digital music collection (up to 65,000 tracks) on up to 16 PCs, Macs and Network Attached Storage (NAS) devices on your home network. Then, our system will wirelessly stream all the music you’ve ripped and downloaded—all over the house. Our system supports all the most popular file formats, too. If you haven’t gone digital yet, it’s easy to rip your CD collection or find a ripping service that will do it for you.
