Love Sonos? Here Are 3 Ways to Build a Sonos Multiroom Audio System

Start Your Whole-Home Audio Experience with Sonos

Love Sonos? Here Are 3 Ways to Build a Sonos Multiroom Audio System

Sonos is a popular audio system for audio enthusiasts of all stripes. First, their wireless speakers sound as good or better than those of practically any other vendor at like prices. Second, Sonos is also a software-based solution, offering simplified app-based configuration, room correction tuning, a host of streaming sources, and more built into an intuitive app.

If you’ve started a Sonos experience with a smart speaker like the Sonos One, you’ve likely enjoyed the sound quality, ease of use, and convenience of voice control with Alexa or Google Home. You can pair two of them for fuller stereo sound, with no wiring required – but you do have to plug them in. You can then add another one or two of them in another room, and with a few clicks, presto, you can have synchronized multiroom audio for your favorite music and podcasts. Or you can have a soundbar for your TV like the Arc or Beam, and that can serve as a part of your multiroom system too.

But there's even more you can do for whole-home audio with other custom installed Sonos products from GHT Group. Read on to learn more about Sonos multiroom system solutions and if they’re right for your Cumming, GA home.

Sonos Wireless Speakers

The easiest and simplest Sonos solution is their wireless speaker series. They go from small to large (the One and the Five) and can also be paired with the Sonos Sub for enhanced bass. The Five is better suited for larger rooms, although the One is no slouch for volume or bass. Both can be paired for true stereo and tuned for the room with Sonos' innovative Trueplay room correction, which uses the microphone on your smartphone to analyze your room acoustics to adjust the speaker’s equalization and output. The speakers can connect over your wireless network or a wired ethernet connection. It’s a straightforward approach. But what if you like the sound of other speakers, or you want the simplicity of the Sonos app with your own stereo or media room setup? Keep reading!

Bring Sonos to Your Audio System

You can have your Sonos in more flexible ways with other audio equipment of your choice. The Sonos Port is the first step into bringing your favorite audio gear into a Sonos wireless streaming setup. The Port is a wired or wireless streamer that brings all the Sonos control and streaming sources to your audio setup through simple line outputs, connecting through analog or digital outputs. Love your beautiful McIntosh integrated amp and Klipsch Heritage speakers? Make them a Sonos zone with a Port. If you have a multichannel system in the media or living room, adding a Port will also enable it as a room in your multi-room audio setup. With a Port, even your turntable can be a source in your multiroom system. You will, however, have to actually put a record on it and start it up, but you will thoroughly enjoy that very analog experience.

A Sonos Architectural Solution

The Sonos Amp is the foundation of Sonos’ answer to those who want architectural (built-in) speakers. The Amp, as the name implies, brings Sonos streaming as well as a powerful 125-watt per channel amplifier to the table to power tower, bookshelf, or architectural speakers. You can mix and match Amp in various ways; there's too much detail to go into here. For example, it can serve as part of your multiroom setup and form the basis of a TV surround system for a bedroom or smaller media room, with built-in or freestanding speakers. The beauty of Sonos is you can mix Ports, Amps, and Sonos wireless speakers to cover a variety of spaces and audio needs in your home.

When might you not want to use Sonos for multiroom audio?  GHT Group will always consider your needs and desires and recommend the best multi-room audio system for you. When you get into larger properties and many zones, other systems may provide a more flexible and cost-effective solution for whole-home audio. But for simpler setups, there’s much to love with Sonos.
