    Streaming on Sonos speaker

    Hi everyone,

    Quick question is there a way to stream the music from Squeezebox to a Sonos speakers?
    I have two Sonos speaker and I will be very happy if I can use this things in multiroom configuration with my Picoreplayer.

    Thanks and Cheers

    Your Sonos speaker May well be reachable via Apple AirPlay.
    If it is then install Philippe's AirPlay Bridge plugin on your LMS and the. You should see it represented like any other LMS player.

          But I think if you use UPnP Bridge then you lose the sync.

            I only have a pair of Play:1s, so not sure, but they’re older and don’t support AirPlay.

              Play:1s is not compatible

              It's only work if you have a least one Sonos speaker with Airplay (Sonos One) then you can also stream on the Play:1s (but the one with Airplay has to be active).

                But they do work from LMS with the UPnP/DLNA bridge, which is what I use with them. Apparently they won't sync with other speakers, I've never tested this, as whole-house sync really isn't interesting to me.

                  I have a sonos speaker in the dinner room synchronized via sonos app with a sonos speaker in the kitchen.

                  When I play from LMS on any of these speakers, they are kept synchronized.

                    That confirms what is described in the first post of this thread: Announce: UPnPBridge = integrate UPnP/DLNA players with LMS (squeeze2upnp).

                    Generally speaking, UPnP/DLNA players can not be synchronized with Squeezebox/Squeezelite players.

                    But Sonos players can be synchronized with other Sonos players when they are grouped using the Sonos app. Under Sonos tips it says:
                    Sonos players, when grouped, will keep their synchro within the Sonos group. When a group is created, all slave players will disappear from LMS, only the master is kept. They will re-appear when un-doing the group. You must use the Sonos app to create/delete groups.

                      AirSonos

                      Wondering if anyone has had experience using AirSonos to stream LMS to an old non-official-airplay-supported Sonos speaker. Need something somewhat compact and all in one an and old used Play 1 might fit the bill. Specifically want to know if there's any issues syncing speakers using this chain of workarounds.

                        Why not use the UPnPbridge plugin?

                          From my short search, I read it can't sync with your other devices. But admittedly haven't looked into it thoroughly. It can?

                            You are right, sync doesn't work with the upnp bridge.

                              Couldn't say... Never use sync.
