Once you’ve got it set up, you can add additional Sonos products any time. What’s in the Box • Sonos PLAYBAR • Power Cord • 5 ft. /1.5m TOSLINK Optical Audio Cable • Ethernet Cable • Quick Start Guide • Important Product Information Booklet What’s Required Television requirements The PLAYBAR is compatible with any television that has an optical digital audio output. Home network 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.)

2 Product Guide • 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. Before You Begin Prior to installing the Sonos PLAYBAR, make sure all external components, such as your cable box, DVD player, etc. are connected directly to your TV. If you have any existing home theater or surround sound equipment, disconnect it from your television.

Sonos PLAYBAR 3 PLAYBAR Front Note: The grill cloth is not removable. Tampering with the cloth may damage your PLAYBAR. Play/Pause Toggles between playing and pausing the audio. • When the TV is on, press once to mute the audio • When the TV is off, press once to restart the music source that was in use prior to the TV 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) Status Indicator Light Indicates the status of the PLAYBAR. When the PLAYBAR is in normal operation, the LED is white. If desired, you can adjust this setting so the white light does not display. See White status light for more information. See Indicator Light Explanations for a complete list of status indications.

4 Product Guide Volume Up (+) Press these buttons to adjust the volume up and down. Volume Down (-) IR (InfraRed) Sensors / Signal Lights The IR sensor receives the signals sent by a remote control. When the PLAYBAR receives a volume or mute command, the IR signal light displays momentarily. If desired, you can adjust this setting so the light never displays. See IR signal light for more information. PLAYBAR Back Ethernet Ports (2) You can use an Ethernet cable to connect the PLAYBAR to your home network. Digital Audio In (Optical) Use an audio optical cable (supplied) to connect the Sonos PLAYBAR’s digital audio input to the optical digital output on your television. Take care not to bend or twist the cable. The PLAYBAR’s digital audio in and the optical cable end are ’D- shaped’—be sure to align for proper insertion.

Sonos PLAYBAR 5 AC Power (Mains) Input Use only the supplied power cord to connect to a power outlet (using a third party power cord will void your warranty). Be sure to use the proper power adapter for your country. Push the power cord firmly into the PLAYBAR until it is flush with the surface. IR Repeater Allows the commands from your remote control to reach your TV if the PLAYBAR is positioned in front of the TV. This setting is on by default, but can be turned off. See IR repeater for more information. Selecting a Location The PLAYBAR’s flexible design allows for multiple orientations. You can wall mount it above or below your television or place it on a tabletop. See the guidelines below for more information. Tabletop • Lay the PLAYBAR horizontally and flat on its feet. • Do not place vertically or upright on its side. • To preserve audio quality, ensure the connector panel faces toward the TV—Sonos logo should be closer to your TV. • There is no placement restriction between the TV and PLAYBAR as long as the television’s IR is not blocked. The PLAYBAR IR repeater is designed for at least 2” (50mm) distance, but may work at a closer distance.

6 Product Guide • Do not place the PLAYBAR in a cabinet or on a walled shelf. Both ends of the PLAYBAR should be at least 1 ft. (30cm) from a wall or other obstruction. Wall mounting The PLAYBAR can be mounted above or below your television using the PLAYBAR Wall Mount Kit (purchased separately). See Wall Mounting for detailed instructions. Setting Up the PLAYBAR The PLAYBAR is compatible with Sonos software versions 4.0 and later. If you are adding the PLAYBAR to an existing Sonos system, be sure to check for software updates before adding the PLAYBAR. 1. Carefully unpack the package contents. 2. Choose a location for the PLAYBAR. Refer to Selecting a Location for help with this step. 3. Remove the protective cap from each end of the optical audio cable.

Sonos PLAYBAR 7 4. Connect the optical audio cable (supplied) from your TV’s digital audio out (optical) to the PLAYBAR’s digital audio in (optical) being careful not to twist or bend the cable. The PLAYBAR’s digital audio in and the optical cable are ’D-shaped’—be sure to align for proper insertion. IMPORTANT: Be sure to remove the protective caps from each end of the supplied optical audio cable before inserting. 5. Attach the power adapter to the PLAYBAR and apply power. Be sure to push the power cord firmly into the PLAYBAR until it is flush with the surface. The status indicator light on the right side of the unit will begin to flash.

8 Product Guide 6. (OPTIONAL) If you are setting up your PLAYBAR with a SUB and/or surround speakers, position them in your room and apply power.  (You will be prompted to add these components to Sonos after the PLAYBAR is added.) If you purchased a Sonos SUB, place the SUB wherever it best fits your room—standing up or lying flat. You can place it in a corner, against the wall, behind, under, or next to any piece of furniture on any kind of floor surface. If you purchased Sonos PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 surround speakers, place the speakers to the left and right of your main viewing position, level with or behind the main viewing position. They can be placed either horizontally or vertically, but make sure both speakers have the same orientation. Note: Expandable PLAYBAR home theater setup For a 3.1 home theater experience, pair a SUB with your PLAYBAR. For a 5.0 home theatre experience, bond a pair of PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 speakers with your PLAYBAR. For a 5.1 home theater experience, pair a SUB and a pair of PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 speakers with your PLAYBAR.

Local music library Sonos can play music from any computer or network-attached storage (NAS) device on your home network where you have shared music folders (up to 65,000 songs). During the setup process, you are guided through the process of accessing your local music library (such as your iTunes library). Over time, you may wish to add or remove folders from this list. Note: We recommend using the Sonos app for Mac or PC to add shared folders. For more information, please visit our website at http://faq.sonos.com/manage. To make changes to your local library using a mobile device, go to Settings and choose one of the following options: • To add a music folder, select Music Library Setup and: • Touch -> Add New Share (iOS). • Touch Add New Share (Android). • To remove a music folder, select Music Library Setup and: • Touch next to the folder you wish to remove (iOS). • Touch the folder and select Remove Share (Android). Sonos indexes your local music so you can view your music collection by categories (such as artists, albums, composers, genres, or songs.) If you add new music, simply update your music index to add this music to your Sonos music library. • To update your music library, select Manage Music Library -> Update Music Index Now. If you’d like your music library to update automatically each day, select Schedule Music Index Updates and then select an update time. Playing music from your mobile device You can play music and podcasts stored on any mobile device that’s on the same network as Sonos. Just choose On this [mobile device] from the Menu. Google Play Music (Android devices) You can play music to Sonos directly from the Google Play Music app on any Android device. This feature is available for both Standard and All Access Google Play Music customers. To play music directly from the Google Play Music app to Sonos, you must have both the Google Play Music app and the Sonos app installed on your mobile device. Simply open the Google Play Music app and connect to a Sonos room or room group to start the music.

Sonos PLAYBAR 21 Control Sonos from your Spotify app You can always play Spotify from the Sonos app. Now you can control Sonos directly from your Spotify app too (Spotify premium subscribers only). While you’re listening to music in the Spotify app, select DEVICES AVAILABLE to connect to a Sonos room or room group. To use this feature you need to have a Sonos account. If you don’t have one, choose one of the following options: • On a mobile device: Go to Settings -> Advanced Settings and choose Control Sonos from Spotify. • On a PC: Go to Manage -> Settings and choose Advanced. From the Music Sources tab, choose Control Sonos from Spotify. • On a Mac: Go to Sonos -> Preferences and select Advanced. From the Music Sources tab, choose Control Sonos from Spotify. Wall Mounting PLAYBAR can be wall mounted above or below your wall-mounted television using the PLAYBAR Wall Mount Kit. To preserve audio quality, ensure the connector panel faces away from the TV when mounted—the Sonos logo should be farther from your TV. Note: It is recommended that you connect the power and audio cables to the PLAYBAR before mounting on the wall. What you will need • PLAYBAR Wall Mount Kit (sold separately) • Masking tape • An awl or other pointed tool • A Phillips head screw driver • Power drill with Phillips head attachment

22 Product Guide 1. Hold the PLAYBAR wall mount template (included in the wall mount kit) in the desired position on your wall. The PLAYBAR can be mounted either above or below your television. 2“(50mm) For best audio performance, be sure the connector panel faces AWAY from the TV when mounted. 1 “(25mm) Caution: For optimal audio performance, Sonos recommends: When mounting below a television, allow 1 inch (25mm) clearance between the PLAYBAR and the TV. When mounting above a television, allow 2 inches (50mm) clearance between the PLAYBAR and the TV. 2. Use a level (included in wall mount kit) to ensure the template is horizontally level, and then tape the template securely to the wall. 3. Use an awl or other sharp object to punch 4 small holes through 4 of the marked locations on the template. (If additional reinforcement is desired, 2 spare screws and anchors are included in the wall mount kit.) Placement may vary but holes should be located toward the corners, away from center.

Sonos PLAYBAR 23 4. Remove the template from the wall. 5. Drill pilot holes.  Because the anchors and screws are designed to be self-starting, this step is optional. However pre- drilling will result in a more accurate installation. Refer to the table below for more information. Wall Material Pre Drill Use Wall Anchors Use Screws Wood Stud with 1/8” (3mm) bit No Yes Drywall (no stud) with 3/16” (4.5mm) bit Yes Yes Hard wallboard or double with 3/16” (4.5mm) bit Yes Yes board Plaster with 1/4” (6.5mm) bit Yes Yes Concrete or Brick with 1/8” (3mm) bit Yes Yes 6. Insert and secure the wall anchors (supplied in the wall mount kit). • If you are drilling into wood stud, do not use the wall anchors. • If you are drilling into Sheetrock, screw the wall anchors into the drywall with a Phillips head screwdriver until the head is flat against or slightly below the wall surface, being careful not to overtighten. Note: The anchors can be installed using a screw gun or a regular power drill with a Phillips head screwdriver attachment. If you are drilling into sheetrock, the surface of the drywall may distort slightly or dimple as the anchor is installed. This is not unusual.

24 Product Guide 7. Fasten the PLAYBAR bracket to the wall using the screws supplied in the wall mount kit. Use the level to verify accuracy a final time, and then tighten the screws securely. Note: If using wall anchors, continue to drill for a few seconds even after it appears the screw is secure— the anchor will likely spin a little as the anchor expands inside the wall. 8. Hang the PLAYBAR securely on the two (2) bracket pegs. Basic Troubleshooting Warning:Do not open the product as there is a risk of electric shock. Under no circumstances should the product be repaired by anyone other than an authorized Sonos repair center, as this will invalidate the warranty. Please contact Sonos Customer Support for more information.  The grill cloth is not removable. Tampering with the cloth may damage your PLAYBAR. If a problem occurs, you can try the troubleshooting suggestions listed below. If one of these doesn’t remedy the problem, or you are not sure how to proceed, please contact the Sonos Customer Support team and we’ll be happy to help. • Customer Support • Visit our PLAYBAR reference section at http://moreinfo.sonos.com/PLAYBAR • Visit our website at www.sonos.com/support • Email us at [email protected]

Sonos PLAYBAR 25 PLAYBAR not detected during setup • Did you allow Sonos to check for updates? The Sonos PLAYBAR requires software version 4.0 or later. • Is the power cord properly seated? Be sure to push the power cord firmly into the PLAYBAR until it is flush with the surface. • If either of these is not the problem, a network issue may be preventing the PLAYBAR from connecting to Sonos. Try moving the Sonos products closer together. Eliminating annoying messages on your TV when using a cable, satellite, or set top box remote After you disable your TV speakers, your television might display an annoying or confusing message when you adjust the volume on the PLAYBAR. This could be a message reminding you that your TV speakers are off, or a volume indicator unrelated to the sound from your PLAYBAR. If you have a programmable remote control, you can try the steps below. These steps will configure your remote control to send volume commands that are only recognized by the PLAYBAR so the message no longer appears when you increase or decrease the volume. You will need to refer to the printed instructions that came with your remote control, or browse the on-screen help menu on your cable/satellite/set-top box as the specific details will vary. Please contact your cable service provider for additional help. Identify an unused device key Your remote control can likely control a variety of devices. The device keys are usually located at the top of the remote and labeled TV/Cable/CBL/STB/DVD/AUX. Identify a device key that is not currently being used (for example, the AUX key). If your remote will not allow additional devices to be programmed, you might wish to purchase a universal remote to make it easier to control all your devices. Sonos recommends a Logitech® Harmony® universal remote. See If you are using a Logitech universal remote for more information. Program the unused device key Programming the unused device key will add new volume commands to your remote control. To perform this step you will need to refer to the printed instructions that came with your remote control or browse the on-screen help menu on your cable/satellite/set-top box as the specific details will vary by manufacturer. If you cannot locate the instructions, contact your cable service provider for additional help. • From the list of codes that can be programmed, select a Sonos code if it appears in the list. • If Sonos does not appear in the list, select a code for any manufacturer brand other than your TV or other devices connected to the TV. For example if you own a Vizio TV and a Samsung Blu-ray player, choose a Panasonic code from the list. • DO NOT initiate an automated search for a code. Lock your remote control to the new volume commands Locking volume control to the new device will ensure your remote always sends the new volume commands. This feature is likely referred to as volume lock or volume punch through in the instructions that accompanied your remote control. Configure your PLAYBAR to work with these new volume commands See Remote control setup for help with this step.

26 Product Guide Verify that the problem is solved If the problem persists, try repeating the steps above, choosing a different manufacturer brand when programming the unused device key. Eliminating annoying messages on your TV when using a universal remote After you disable your TV speakers, your television might display an annoying or confusing message whenever you adjust the volume on the PLAYBAR. This could be a message reminding you that your TV speakers are off, or a volume indicator unrelated to the sound from your PLAYBAR. Try the steps below to configure your universal remote so this message no longer appears when you increase or decrease the PLAYBAR’s volume. If you do not own a universal remote, Sonos recommends you purchase a Logitech® Harmony® remote. If you are using a Logitech universal remote If this remote is a new purchase, you will first need to set up a Logitech user account and install the Harmony Remote software. Then follow the steps below to add the PLAYBAR as a new device. 1. Use the USB cable provided by Logitech to connect your Harmony remote to your computer. Note: If this remote is a new purchase, you will need to set up a Logitech user account and install the Harmony Remote software before proceeding. 2. Launch the Logitech Harmony Remote software or go to www.logitech.com/myharmony and login to your account. (Where you are directed depends on the Logitech universal remote model you purchased.) 3. Select the Add Device setting. 4. Choose one of the following options: • If you are using Logitech Harmony Remote software: • Select Sonos as the manufacturer, and enter PLAYBAR as the model name/number. If the Sonos PLAYBAR is not in their database, you will be asked to add it. • Confirm that you've entered the information correctly, and then save your changes. • If you are using My Harmony website: • Type Sonos as the manufacturer and PLAYBAR as the model name. If the Sonos PLAYBAR is not in their database, you will be asked to confirm your entry or make another choice. • Confirm that you've entered the information correctly, and then save your changes. If you are using another universal remote Please follow the instructions in Eliminating annoying messages on your TV when using a cable, satellite, or set top box remote. Turning Off Your Television’s Speakers During the setup process you are prompted to turn off your TV speakers so the sound comes only through the PLAYBAR. While Sonos cannot provide instructions for every television model, please try the steps below. If you cannot find the correct setting to turn off your TV speakers, please consult the owner’s guide that was packaged with your television. 1. Select the Menu or Setup button on your television’s remote control (not your cable remote control). An on-screen menu will appear.

Sonos PLAYBAR 27 2. Select the menu option that controls your television’s audio functions. Note: This menu selection is most often labeled Audio, Sound, Tools, or Options or may display as a musical note icon. 3. Select the appropriate setting to turn off your TV speakers. Depending on your TV make and model, choices may include: • Off / On • External Speaker / Television Speaker • Audio System / Television Speaker The choice in bold will turn the TV speakers off. • If none of these are applicable to your television, look for a setting that switches your TV output between variable and fixed and try switching the setting. Can’t turn off TV speakers You should make every effort to turn off your TV’s internal speakers. However some brands, including Toshiba and Dynex, may not include this setting. If you are unable to turn off the TV speakers, follow the steps below. 1. Using the volume control buttons on your television, turn the TV volume all the way down. Do not use the Mute button. 2. From this point forward use only the volume buttons on your Sonos app to adjust the PLAYBAR’s volume. I have a new router If you purchase a new router or change your ISP (Internet service provider), you will need to restart all your Sonos products after the router is installed. Note: If the ISP technician connects a Sonos product to the new router, you only need to restart your wireless Sonos products. 1. Disconnect the power cord from all of your Sonos products for at least 5 seconds. 2. Reconnect them one at a time, starting with the Sonos product that is connected to your router (if one is usually connected). Wait for your Sonos products to restart. The status indicator light will change to solid white on each product when the restart is complete. If your Sonos setup is completely wireless (you don’t keep a Sonos product connected to your router), you will also need to change your wireless network password. Follow the steps below: 1. Temporarily connect one of your Sonos players to the new router with an Ethernet cable. 2. Select Advanced Settings -> Wireless Setup from the Settings menu. Sonos will detect your network. 3. Enter the password for your wireless network. 4. Once the password is accepted, unplug the player from your router and move it back to its original location.
