Sonos Five compatibility

Hi,

I’m about to buy my first Sonos product the (Sonos Five) but first I need to know if Roon is compatible with it?

Will Roon find it when the Sonos five is up and running or do I have to do some workaround?

Thanks

Should be detected via AirPlay.

Only air play?
That’s not good, I thought Roon would detect it through Wifi so I could get higher rate sound :thinking:

Have a read here https://help.roonlabs.com/portal/en/kb/articles/sonos

I also own a pair of 5s and they are great speakers with big sound, playing well with Roon.

Fully supported via Sonos protocols (with some minor issues) as well as Airplay up to 16/44.1 (CD Quality)

Roon can only play music to the same protocols, so you cannot mix pure Roon RAAT devices with Sonos and Airplay. Just bear that in mind if you want to mix some Raspberry Pis in the mix
