Sonos PLAY:3 The PLAY:3® is the most versatile Sonos wireless speaker that lets you use any Sonos app to control and enjoy all the music you want all over your home (see The Sonos App for more information). • Three custom-designed drivers (two mid-range and one tweeter), each with a dedicated amplifier. • Position vertically or horizontally—software automatically adjusts the sound to ensure best performance. • Works seamlessly with the complete range of Sonos products. New to Sonos? It takes just a few steps to get Sonos up and running—simply follow the setup instructions packaged with your PLAY:3. Once you’ve got it set up, you can add additional Sonos products any time. Adding to an existing Sonos system? Sonos can be easily expanded room by room. You can turn directly to Adding to an Existing Sonos System if you are adding a PLAY:3 to an existing Sonos system. Your Home Network To use the Sonos app, your device must be on the same network as Sonos. If you need help, please go to http://faq.sonos.com/searching.

2 Product Guide Requirements To access music services, Internet radio, and music stored on your computer or Network-Attached Storage (NAS) device, make sure your network meets these requirements. Note: Make sure your network has a high-speed Internet connection because Sonos is designed to provide you with free, online software updates. Your Sonos system must be registered to receive these updates so be sure to register during the setup process. We do not share your e-mail address with other companies. • High-speed DSL/cable modem, or fiber-to-the-home broadband connection for proper playback of music services. (If your Internet service provider only offers satellite Internet access, you may experience playback issues due to fluctuating download rates.) • If your modem isn’t a modem/router combination and you want to take advantage of Sonos’ automatic online updates or use a streaming music service, you’ll need to install a wireless router before setting up Sonos. Note: Sonos communicates over a 2.4GHz home network supporting  802.11 b/g/n wireless technology. 802.11n only network configurations are not supported—you can either change the router settings to 802.11 b/g/n or connect a Sonos product to your router. • Connect a Sonos BOOST or speaker to your router if: • You have a larger home where the WiFi performance isn’t reliable and you want to strengthen the wireless performance of your Sonos system. • Your WiFi network is already in high demand with streaming video and web surfing and you want to create a separate wireless network exclusively for your Sonos speakers. • Your network is 5GHz only (not switchable to 2.4GHz). • You have configured your router to support only 802.11n and can’t change the settings to support 802.11 b/g/n. • For best results, you should connect the computer or NAS drive that contains your personal music library collection to your network router using an Ethernet cable. The Sonos App You can use the free Sonos app with any compatible device, including: • Sonos app (Android)—Android 4.0 and higher; certain features require later versions.  Touch the Play Store or Market button on your Android device to download the free Sonos app from Google Play. • Sonos app (iOS)—iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 8.0 or later; certain features may require later versions. Touch the App Store button on your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad to download the free Sonos app, or download the application from iTunes®. (If you download from iTunes, you will need to sync before you see the Sonos logo display on your device.) • Sonos app (PC)—Windows® 7 and higher; certain features require later versions.  Download from our website at www.sonos.com/support/downloads.

Sonos PLAY:3 3 • Sonos app (Mac)—Macintosh® OS X 10.9 or later  Download from our website at www.sonos.com/support/downloads. Note: Sonos CONTROL has been discontinued, but it’s compatible with your new Sonos product. PLAY:3 Front Note: The Sonos PLAY:3’s front grille is not removable. Tampering with the grille may result in damage to your PLAY:3. On/Off Sonos is designed to be always on; the system uses minimal electricity whenever it is not playing music. To quickly stop streaming audio in all rooms, select Pause All from Rooms. To stop streaming audio in one room, press the Play/Pause button on the player. Status indicator Indicates the current status. During normal operation the white light is dimly lit. If desired, you can turn off the white light from Room Settings. See Player Status Indicators for a complete list of status indications.

4 Product Guide Play/Pause Toggles between playing and pausing the audio in this room (defaults to restarting the same music source when pressed unless a different source is selected). • Press once to start or stop streaming audio • Press twice to skip to the next track (if applicable to the selected music source) • Press three times to skip to the previous track (if applicable to the selected music source) Volume up (+)  Press these buttons to adjust the volume up and down. Volume down (-) PLAY:3 Back Threaded mounting hole The Sonos PLAY:3 has an integrated mounting hole on the back of the unit so 1/4 inch  it can be wall-mounted if desired (mounting bracket not included.) See Wall 20-thread Mounting the PLAY:3 for more information.

Sonos PLAY:3 5 Ethernet port Use an Ethernet cable to connect to a router, computer, or additional network device such as a network-attached storage (NAS) device. LED indicators: • Flashing Yellow (network activity) • Green (link connection) AC power (mains) input  Use only the supplied power cord to connect to a power outlet (using a third (~100-240 V, 50-60 Hz) party power cord will void your warranty).  Be sure to insert the power cord firmly into the back of the PLAY:3 until it is flush with the back of the unit. Selecting a Location You can locate the Sonos PLAY:3 just about anywhere. Its compact size makes it easy to place the PLAY:3 on the kitchen counter, or take it out to the patio with you. For maximum enjoyment, we have a few guidelines: • The PLAY:3 can be positioned either horizontally or vertically to accommodate the desired space—the EQ (audio equalization) will automatically adjust to create the best possible sound when the orientation is changed. • The PLAY:3 is designed to work well even when placed next to a wall or other surface. For optimum performance, maintaining more than 1 inch (2.5 cm) clearance around the back of the unit is recommended. • Care should be taken if placing the Sonos PLAY:3 close to an older CRT (cathode ray tube) television. If you notice any discoloration or distortion of your picture quality, simply move the PLAY:3 further from the television. • The PLAY:3 is not water-resistant. Don’t leave it outside during a rain storm or position it near water.

6 Product Guide Wall Mounting the PLAY:3 The Sonos PLAY:3 has a standard 1/4”-20 threaded mounting socket. If desired, you can easily wall mount your PLAY:3 using a suitable mounting bracket (not included). Simply choose a location that’s close to an electrical outlet, taking care to avoid heat, steam, dripping water or hidden wiring, and follow the instructions included with the mounting bracket. Note: Be sure the wall mount bracket you purchase will support at least 10lbs. (4.5 kgs). Adding to an Existing Sonos System Once you’ve got your Sonos music system set up, you can easily add more Sonos products any time (up to 32). If your house has structured (built-in) network wiring, you can make a wired connection to the new Sonos product(s). If you don’t have structured network wiring, our built-in wireless technology is ideal for you. 1. Select a location for your PLAY:3 (see Selecting a Location for optimal placement guidelines.) 2. Attach the power cord to the PLAY:3, and apply power. Be sure to push the power cord firmly into the back of the PLAY:3 until it is flush with the back of the unit. Note: If you want to make a wired connection, connect a standard Ethernet cable from your router or another Sonos product (or a live network wall plate if you have built-in wiring) to an Ethernet switch connection on the back of the new Sonos product. 3. Choose one of the following options: • Using the Sonos app on a mobile device: Select Add a Player or SUB from Settings and follow the on- screen prompts to add this product to your Sonos system. • Using the Sonos app on a Mac or PC: Select Add a Player or SUB from the Manage menu and follow the prompts to add this product to your Sonos system. Thick walls, 2.4 GHz cordless telephones, or the presence of other wireless devices can interfere with or block the wireless network signals from Sonos. If you experience difficulty after positioning a Sonos product, try one or more of the following resolutions—relocate the Sonos product; change the wireless channel your music system is operating on; connect a Sonos product to your router if your setup is currently wireless. Tune Your Room with Trueplay™ Go ahead, put your Sonos speakers wherever you want. Trueplay listens to your room and tunes your speakers so you hear the sound you love, custom tuned to the room where you’re listening (works on mobile devices running iOS 8 or later). Choose Settings -> Room Settings. Pick a room and touch Trueplay Tuning to get started. Note: Trueplay tuning is not available if VoiceOver is enabled on your iOS device. If you want to tune your speakers, first turn VoiceOver off on your device and then select Settings -> Room Settings from the Sonos app.

Sonos PLAY:3 7 Creating a Stereo Pair The stereo pair setting allows you to group two PLAY:1s, PLAY:3s or PLAY:5®s in the same room to create a wider stereo experience. In this configuration, one unit serves as the left channel and the other serves as the right channel. You cannot create a mixed stereo pair—the Sonos products in the stereo pair must be the same. If you would like to add surround speakers to a PLAYBAR configuration, see Surround Speakers instead. Optimum placement information • When creating a stereo pair, it is best to place the two Sonos products 8 to 10 feet away from each other. • Your favorite listening position should be 8 to 12 feet from the paired Sonos products. Less distance will increase bass, more distance will improve stereo imaging. Note: The stereo pair setting is for use with PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5 units only. You cannot create a mixed stereo pair—both Sonos products in the stereo pair must be the same. Using the Sonos app on a mobile device 1. Select Settings -> Room Settings. 2. Select a PLAY:3 to pair. 3. Select Create Stereo Pair, and follow the prompts to set up the stereo pair.
