Wireless Multiroom Audio
Buying Guide

Wake up and turn on your tunes, or party to playlists all night long. Wireless multiroom systems connect your audio sources, smart devices and speakers to eliminate clutter and confusion in your home. Play different music in each room, group rooms together, or play the same music in every room at the same time, and control it all from your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
Find the Right System

A wireless multiroom system allows you to access and control all the audio you've stored to your home network, plus listen to Internet services like Spotify and iHeartRadio. Most multiroom systems need only a single speaker and your wireless router to get started, and you can customize each room according to the way you listen:

  • Decide how many rooms in your house to include and then choose speakers according to the size of each room
  • Easily move the portable speakers to different locations whenever you want, within one room or throughout the house
  • Turn on a song in the kitchen and keep listening as you walk through your living room, bedroom, or even out on the patio
  • Connect each speaker to multiple devices, like smartphones, tablets and more
  • Choose speakers that give you access to your favorite services, like Pandora or SiriusXM Radio

Setup Is Easy
Choose Your Speakers

Wireless speakers are easy to place on a bookshelf, desk or table, and come in different sizes and designs, with a variety of features. You can use them inside or outside the house, as long as they are within range of your wireless network or hotspot. With so many options, you'll be able to stream music from your favorite sources, create the best sound for your space, and enhance your home décor.

Download the Free App

Once you've connected a speaker to your wireless network, you can control it with an app that can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet or computer. Some systems come with a dedicated remote or buttons on the unit itself, ensuring easy, intuitive access to your music library and services.

Expand Your System

Include new speakers and devices in your multiroom system anytime you want. Place a compact speaker in your bedroom that can double as an alarm. Pair two speakers for stereo sound, and add a subwoofer for complementary bass. For audio with more depth and detail, add an amplifier. To hear music in more corners of your home, add adapters and extenders.

Add a Sound Bar

If you want to improve your TV audio at the same time, add a sound bar to your system. Sound bars can make dialogue easier to understand, level out shifts in volume, and play streaming sound along with the rest of your audio system. Some brands even let you designate speakers to a specific rear channel when used with their sound bars, to simulate surround sound.

Wi-Fi or Bluetooth

Bluetooth speakers are portable, so they can travel with you wherever you go. They're great for outdoor activities where you're leaving your home network behind, since they connect to a smartphone, tablet or laptop. But music playing over Bluetooth speakers might be interrupted if you receive a phone call or text.

On the other hand, Wi-Fi speakers keep streaming no matter what you're doing on your device. This is because they connect directly to your home network and deliver higher sound quality and better speaker support. They also offer a wider range of music, since you can access playlists that exist on your computer or hard drive, along with audio from the Internet.

If you can't decide between the two, you can find wireless speakers that support both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technologies.

Wireless Multiroom Systems by Brand
Sonos

Sonos offers a system of Hi-Fi wireless speakers for every room and occasion. All you need to get started is one speaker, like the Play:1 (see below), and a wireless router to connect to. A downloadable app unites your digital audio library, so you can have music in each room, or separately if someone wants to listen to one song in the living room while you sing along to another preparing food in the kitchen.

How it works

Sonos' wireless speakers install quickly over a dedicated wireless network, so you don't have to miss a beat. To create the Sonos wireless network, you need to connect one of the main components, a speaker, sound bar or other Sonos sound systems like the Bridge, to your router with an Ethernet cable. Once one of the components is connected to your router, any additional components you add can be connected wirelessly, without the need of any cable. The app can be installed on as many smartphones and tablets as you'd like, and is available for iOS and Android devices.

Main components

Speakers: Sonos offers three main speakers in black or white, and each one delivers clear, robust sound. Choosing the right speaker for you depends on your room size, what you're using the speaker for, and your budget.


Play 1: As the smallest Sonos speaker available, the Play:1 is great in small rooms, especially the kitchen or bathroom thanks to its humidity-proof design. It can be used in a set of two for the rear speakers in your surround sound setup for your home theater and can be wall mounted for more room customization.


Play:3

Play 3: This single speaker is able to separate the left and right audio channels. Two Play:3 speakers can be used as the rear speakers in your surround sound setup.


Play:5

Play 5: The Play 5 speaker has been engineered to make listening to digital music simpler, more immersive, and more satisfying. It combines six synchronized drivers with room-adapting TRUEPLAY tuning, able to deliver a brilliant reproduction of the music you love.


Sonos Controller app

Sonos Controller app: Music can be controlled wirelessly with the downloadable app from your smartphone, computer or tablet. The app lets you browse and play your music. You can also choose which song plays in which room, or play the same music everywhere in your home — perfect for parties.


Additional components to consider

Adding these optional components to your Sonos wireless audio setup will expand your audio options.


Sonos Bridge

Sonos Boost: The optional Boost lets you wirelessly connect your Playbar to the Sub and Play 1 rear speakers to create an immersive 5.1 surround sound experience. Plus, it plugs into your home router to create a reliable wireless signal and even extends the range of your Sonos system.


Sonos Connect Amp

Sonos Connect Amp: The Sonos Connect:Amp is a full-featured digital audio system that lets you integrate unpowered, wired speakers you already own into the multiroom audio system, no matter what brand they are. It is part music streamer and part amplifier.


Sonos Connect

Sonos Connect: Don't throw away your old stereo or home theater equipment; use the Sonos Connect to give your external amplifier/receiver or powered speaker system new life as part of your wireless setup.


Sonos Playbar

Sonos Playbar: The TV-compatible Playbar is an essential component when adding 5.1 surround sound to your home theater.


Sonos Sub

Sonos Sub: This force-cancelling sub delivers strong bass in your surround sound setup.


Sound Services

Available services

Sonos lets you listen to your favorite Pandora or SiriusXM stations, as well as songs from Spotify your iTunes library and dozens of other streaming music services. The Controller app comes pre-loaded with TuneIn radio, a service with over 100,000 radio stations, giving you plenty of ways to explore new music and talk radio.
