Sonos offers the BRIDGE as an option to ensure reliable wireless performance for any situation--creating a dedicated wireless network for your Sonos speakers when your WiFi signal isn't reliable.
Why create a dedicated Sonos network? Sometimes WiFi isn't enough. Some people have problems streaming movies or surfing the web at home because their network is crowded with too many WiFi devices, and others have rooms too far away from the router to get a WiFi signal at all. If this sounds familiar, use the Sonos BRIDGE to create a powerful, dedicated wireless network exclusively for your Sonos speakers.
Plugging in the BRIDGE to your router launches a reliable mesh network on a separate wireless channel, which means that your speakers don't have to talk to the WiFi router directly, but rather can connect reliably through any nearby Sonos player. This increases the range of your Sonos system, and ensures that you've got great connectivity no matter how large your home or how many WiFi devices you use.
How it works
Sonos is a system of HiFi wireless speakers and audio components. It unites your digital music collection in one app that you control from any device. Play what you want in every room over a dedicated wireless network. Sonos speakers work together to ensure rock-solid wireless performance, with no skips, delays, or drops.
Build a house of sound, one room at a time. Play different music in any room or the same song everywhere, in perfect sync. Sonos speakers can talk to each other to stay in perfect sync--even on WiFi.
Powerful mesh network
Sonos offers the most powerful dedicated wireless network for music, and it gets stronger every time you add a speaker.
Play your iTunes library, listen to your online music services, and get access to thousands of free radio stations worldwide.
Powerful app with free updates
Different music sources from one app combined with complete multi-room capabilities so you can listen to your entire world of music in every room of your home. Compatible with Android, iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC devices. Sonos offers free software updates regularly to make your system feel brand new, even if you bought your speakers five years ago.
Elevate your TV sound.
BRIDGE lets you wirelessly connect your PLAYBAR to SUB and PLAY:1 or PLAY:3 rear speakers for an immersive 5.1 surround sound experience that's simple to set up and control.
The dedicated Sonos network is required for expanding your home theater because it ensures incredibly low latency between PLAYBAR and SUB or rear speakers. With the BRIDGE, you don't experience any lip-sync delays when you're watching your favorite TV shows or movies.
