Control what music is playing in every room in your house, from anywhere in your house. Sonos Controllers aren’t tied to a specific ZonePlayer, so you can use any Controller to control the music and the volume in all your rooms. Everything about the Sonos CONTROL – from the touch screen display to the dedicated buttons – is carefully designed to make finding and playing your music a snap.
Wirelessly play the same song in every room of the house – perfectly synchronized. Or, mix it up and play different songs in different rooms.
The Now Playing screen gives you a detailed view of what’s playing, complete with full-color album art, elapsed time of a song and more. Press the Zones button to see an overview of what’s playing in each room of the house. Group your zones together or play different songs in different rooms – without interrupting music playback.
Change the volume in one room or many rooms, all from the same screen. If music is playing in multiple rooms, just slide your finger across the screen to set the perfect level in every single room.
Enjoy the best wireless performance of any networked music product on the market, thanks to SonosNet, our secure AES encrypted wireless mesh network. SonosNet extends the range of the CONTROL and avoids sources of wireless interference by communicating with the closest ZonePlayer, rather than through one distant access point like most other wireless solutions. The CONTROL also has multiple antennas to provide great wireless performance.
Scroll through your music library and radio stations with a flick of your finger. View album art while browsing. Play, pause, skip or rewind with a simple touch. All thanks to the high-quality, fast-responding, capacitive glass touch screen.
Instantly find an artist, song, radio station, or radio show by typing on the on-screen keyboard. Matches appear as you type, so you can start playing your music super fast.
Browse through long lists in your music library alphabetically so you can quickly find your favorites.
View full-screen and thumbnail views of album art, smooth animations and rich graphics with the vibrant, 3.5” full-color VGA display (640x480 pixels).
Regardless of where your music is stored, Sonos presents a single view of your entire library (all artists, albums, composers, genres, etc). Browse by Artist, Album, Genre, Track Name, Composer, or Playlist.
You can queue-up music to play next while listening to what’s playing now – then hand the Controller to someone else to pick the next song.
