Sonos PLAYBASE User Manual Important safety information


Please read these instructions and heed all warnings. Keep them in a convenient location and make sure everyone in the household is aware of them.


  • Do not place the unit where it will be exposed to excessive heat (e.g., radiators, heat registers, stoves), direct sunlight, or a dusty environment (e.g., woodworking shop.)

  • Do not place the unit where it will be exposed to flammable liquids and/or fumes.

  • Allow at least 1” between the PLAYBASE and any walls or surfaces.

  • Protect the power cable from being walked on or pinched, particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where it exits the product. The mains cord should be readily available to disconnect the power.

  • The product should not be used near water—avoid close proximity to a bathtub, kitchen sink, laundry tub, wet basement, swimming pool, etc.

  • The PLAYBASE is for indoor use only. Do not expose to rain or snow.

Proper Ventilation

  • Leave one inch of open space around the sides and above the unit to ensure proper ventilation.

  • Ventilation should not be impeded by covering the ventilation openings with items such as tablecloths, curtains, or papers.

  • Do not let foreign objects into the unit. If a foreign object should get into the unit, unplug the unit and contact Sonos for servicing guidance.


  • Do not operate or handle the product with wet hands.

  • Only use attachment/accessories specified by Sonos.

  • Unplug the power cord during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time.

  • Never disassemble or modify the product in any way.

Cleaning & Maintenance

  • Dust with a dry, soft cloth. A cloth moistened with water or gentle household cleaner may be used to clean dirt or stains, but unplug the product first. Do not spray liquids directly onto the product.

  • Do not use chemical solvents (e.g. alcohol, benzene, paint thinner) or other flammable cleaning liquids.

  • Refer all servicing to Sonos qualified service personnel. Servicing is required when the unit or the power cord has been damaged in any way, if liquid or other foreign matter has fallen into the ventilation openings, or the unit has been exposed to rain or moisture.


Warning: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not expose this apparatus to rain or moisture.
