Sonos Announces Enhancements To Play:1, Home Theatre Setup And More

Coming soon on Sonos – sound enhancements for the PLAY:1, simpler setup for home theatre, and more (now in beta).

Sonos' next update for its Wireless HiFi System – Sonos 5.4* – includes a mix of features and enhancements that will be available for all in the coming weeks.

PLAY:1 gets a tune-up:

Sonos' experts continue to listen and experiment with Sonos speakers every day. With 18 months of learning since launching the PLAY:1 in 2013, they've found a way to take what people already love about its powerful sound and made it even better.

Sonos has made some slight changes to improve the clarity of the PLAY:1 so when you crank up the volume, the vocals will sound even more natural.

And they have optimised the bass performance when you pair the PLAY:1 with a SUB.

They've also made a wired connection to the router optional for home theatre setups. That means you no longer have to connect an Ethernet cable to a BRIDGE, BOOST, or directly to your PLAYBAR.

  • If you already have Sonos home theater– no need to change a thing.
  • For challenging WiFi environments, a SONOS BOOST is recommended to ensure you get the strongest signal strength.

Music on Sonos – new and improved:

  • Sonos has created an updated set of tools to help our partners easily bring new features to the Sonos app in the future like time of day music recommendations, and more. Look for more from your favorite music services on Sonos in the coming months.
  • Sonos are also testing a mix of other features and fixes. Check out TuneIn’s new look and the improved shuffle feature in the Sonos app.

In the past, you had to buy brand new speakers if you wanted the latest and greatest in home audio. Sonos invented Sonos speakers to be smart and adaptable so you wouldn’t have to.
