How is Port different from Connect?
Port is the successor to Connect, delivering richer sound and extending Sonos’s sound platform to your traditional home audio equipment. Port includes an updated digital-to-analogue converter for clearly detailed sound and a 12V trigger, which automatically turns on your amplifier in order to more reliably initiate playback. Port also allows you to control content using Apple AirPlay 2 and features a versatile design compatible with a standard AV rack.
What’s the difference between Port and Amp?
Whilst both Port and Amp offer streaming capabilities and allow you to bring your wired speakers into the Sonos system, the main difference between the products is amplification. Amp powers passive speakers, such as in-wall or in-ceiling speakers. Port cannot power audio equipment, which means it requires either a powered amplifier or powered speakers.
Do I need Port if I only plan on using Sonos wireless speakers? No.
No. Sonos wireless speakers, such as Sonos One or Beam, can connect directly to the Sonos system over WiFi without Port.
Can I use my voice to control Port?
Port supports voice control with either Amazon Alexa or the Google Assistant when connected to a voice-enabled device, such as Sonos One, Beam, Amazon Echo Dot, or Google Home, over WiFi.
Can I connect Port to my turntable?
Yes, you can connect Port to your turntable to stream vinyl to Sonos speakers throughout your home.
What do I need to use Port with a turntable?
You’ll need a turntable with a phono preamp as well as speakers. Plug in a standard audio-in connection to the back of Port. Then, in the Sonos app, go to Browse and select Line-in to control the sound.
Does Port improve the sound quality of speakers?
Whilst overall sound quality factors in the internal components of your speakers, Port’s new digital-to-analogue converter ensures that streaming sound to traditional speakers is as clearly detailed as possible.
Does Port have touch controls?
Port is typically connected to a stereo or receiver with volume controls. To avoid two separate volume adjustments for the same system and to keep it as simple as possible for the listener, Port does not have touch controls.
Can I connect Port directly to a TV?
Port is not designed to be used with a TV. Port has an analogue audio input, which you could wire into a TV to stream audio to any Sonos component or speaker. That said, the line-in isn’t designed for use with a TV and will result in some latency or lip sync issues whilst the audio is converted from analogue to digital. Products with digital connections, such as Playbar, Playbase, Beam, and Amp, are recommended for use with a TV.
If I don't use hardwired speakers, how else can I use Port?
Port’s RCA input can connect turntables, CD players, iPods, DACs, and other audio devices, allowing you to stream vinyl, CDs, and locally-stored audio files to wireless Sonos speakers throughout your home.
