Port is the successor to Connect, delivering richer sound and extending Sonos’ sound platform to your traditional home audio equipment. Port includes an updated digital-to-analog converter for clearly detailed sound and a 12V trigger, which automatically turns on your amplifier 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.
While 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.
No. Sonos wireless speakers, such as Sonos One or Beam, can connect directly to the Sonos system over WiFi without 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.
Yes, you can connect Port to your turntable to stream vinyl to Sonos speakers throughout your home.
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.
While overall sound quality factors on the internal components of your speakers, Port’s new digital-to-analog converter ensures streaming sound to traditional speakers is as clearly detailed as possible.
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.
Port is not designed to be used with a TV. Port has an analog 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 while the audio is converted from analog to digital.
Products with digital connections, such as Playbar, Playbase, Beam, and Amp, are recommended for use with a TV.
Port does not power rear or surround speakers.
Port can be used as a streaming source for a third-party soundbar using either the RCA output or the digital coaxial output.
Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) creates a wireless personal area network so that Port can temporarily communicate with your phone or tablet to simplify the first-time setup process. Once setup is complete, Port relies on WiFi for streaming and updates.
