Configure Sonos S2 loudspeaker
Please read this first:
How to avoid problems with collecting societies.
To avoid problems with your rights management organisation, you should only consider using Sonos speakers if you can ensure and prove that your Sonos system plays only royalty-free music.
We recommend using a closed system that does not support the use of licensed music.
You can set up such a system using our hardware players, for example. You do not need Sonos speakers to do this.
Visit the Sonos Support website
Visit the Sonos download page and download the Sonos Controller App to suit your operating system and speaker generation (S1 or S2).
If you have installation problems, please contact Sonos Support. German Sonos Support or International Sonos Support.
Prerequisite for this tutorial: Your Sonos S2 system is set up and ready to use.
For help setting up your Sonos system, visit the Sonos website.

Once all of the URLs are pasted, you should save the text file.
