2 Product Guide 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. 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
Sonos PLAY:5 3 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 app (Mac)—Macintosh® OS X 10.9 or later. Download from our website at www.sonos.com/support/downloads. Selecting a location The PLAY:5 is designed to produce great sound wherever it's placed. For maximum performance, we have a few guidelines: • The PLAY:5 is a substantial and powerful speaker and should be placed on a flat surface that is robust and durable enough to properly support it. Make sure the PLAY:5’s rubber feet sit completely on the flat surface. • Allow at least 1” clearance all around the PLAY:5. • For a single PLAY:5 speaker Sonos recommends positioning the speaker horizontally, enabling stereo sound over a wide sound stage. (A single PLAY:5 speaker positioned in vertical mode is a mono speaker—there is no stereo separation.) • Place the PLAY:5 across the room from where you will be listening (at or close to your ear height for best results). • For stereo pair placement information, see Optimum stereo pair placement information. Caution: The PLAY:5 is humidity resistant so you can use it in the bathroom; however it is not water resistant so don’t position it near water or leave it outside during a rain storm.
4 Product Guide PLAY:5 front Touch Controls Note: The Sonos PLAY:5’s front grille is not removable. Tampering with the grille may result in damage to your PLAY:5.

Status indicator light Indicates the current status. During normal operation the white light is dimly lit, brightening when touch controls are activated.

6 Product Guide PLAY:5 back Join button Press the round Join button to connect the PLAY:5 to your Sonos system. Ethernet port You can use an Ethernet cable to connect the PLAY:5 to your home network. AC power (mains) input Use only the supplied power cord to connect to a power outlet (using a (~100-240 V, 50-60 Hz) third party power cord will void your warranty). 3.5mm (1/8”) stereo audio in Using Line-In: (2V) To connect to a portable music player, use a 3.5mm to 3.5mm stereo audio cable to connect from the audio output on the device to the PLAY:5’s audio input. To connect an audio component such as a CD player, use a 3.5mm (1/ 8”) mini-stereo to RCA audio cable. (Plug the mini-stereo end into the audio input on the PLAY:5 and plug the RCA end into the audio outputs on the audio component.)
Sonos PLAY:5 7 Adding to an existing Sonos system Once you’ve got Sonos set up, you can easily add more Sonos products any time (up to 32). 1. Select a location for your PLAY:5. (See Selecting a location for optimal placement guidelines.) 2. Attach the power cord to the PLAY:5 and apply power. Be sure to push the power cord firmly into the unit. Note: If you want to make a wired connection, connect a standard Ethernet cable from your router (or a live network wall plate if you have built-in wiring) to the Ethernet port on the back of the 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. • Using the Sonos app on a Mac or PC: Select Add a Player or SUB from the Manage menu. 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. Equalization settings The Sonos PLAY:5 ships with the equalization settings preset to provide the optimal playback experience. If desired, you can change the sound settings (bass, treble, balance, or loudness) to suit your personal preferences. 1. Select Settings -> Room Settings. 2. Touch to select a room. 3. Select EQ, and then drag your finger across the sliders to make adjustments. 4. To change the Loudness setting, touch On or Off. (The loudness setting boosts certain frequencies, including bass, to improve the sound at low volume.)
8 Product Guide Creating a stereo pair The stereo pair setting allows you to group two PLAY:1s, PLAY:3s or PLAY:5s 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. Optimum stereo pair placement information • When creating a stereo pair, it is best to place the two Sonos speakers 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. • You can place them either horizontally or vertically—vertical works best when you sit in an optimized seat in the center between the speakers; horizontal works well when you want a great experience over a wider listening area, such as a couch. (Both speakers should be placed in the same orientation.) • When placed vertically, Volume Up is above the logo; Volume Down is below the logo. • When placed vertically, swipe up to go to the next track; swipe down to go to the previous track. 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.
