Description of Issue

I can only connect to Amp and Move using airplay but can connect to sonos play3 using Roon’s interface. That means 1) I don’t get hi res on Amp/Move and 2) I can’t group the Amp, Play and Move.

(Note also that Roon mis-identifies the Amp as a Port.)

Am I missing something or is this simply the state of roon-sonos integration?


Hi @Mark_Heppler

Welcome to the Roon Community

I’m a fellow Roon and Sonos user

In the Roon Remote app settings you see a tab marked Audio.

In this section towards the bottom your Sonos devices should be listened. They will be marked as Sonos Streaming. Enable these and name them.

You can disable those marked as AirPlay should you wish.

Sonos will still only support 24/48 as a maximum by the way.

Come back to here with how you get on.

The Play3 doesn’t have AirPlay.

If you can connect one of your Sonos products (most central) via ethernet to your network, you’ll get better results with Sonos. YMMV


Thanks Menzies.

For those following along:

The Audio controls are found by navigating to Settings in the main menu, then Audio.

Some Sonos devices show up twice. Once as an AirPlay device and again as a Sonos Connect device.

On my System, Play:3 shows up in the Roon Tested section of the Audio page while Amp, Port and Move all show up under Other Network Devices.

You can group all of the Sonos devices even though there in different sections.
