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 #

Sonos download page ENVisit 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. #

You can also get help setting up your Sonos system and using our streaming URLs on the Sonos website.

Visit the "Stream URLs" page #

See the Stream URLs page for all stream URLs you can use.

If you have subscribed to different rates for different sizes of space, use the tabs at the top of the page to first select the rate you want to use for your Sonos sound reinforcement.

If you want to use multiple URLs with Sonos in turn, save all URLs you want to use in your text file. To do this, select the URL(s) you want to save in the Sonos app one at a time, copy the URL to your cache and paste it into the text file. Once all of the URLs are pasted, you should save the text file.

Sonos offers the ability to store your own stream URLs via TuneIn, for which you will need a free TuneIn account. If you don’t have a TuneIn account, you can register with TuneIn directly from the Sonos app.
