Sonos in the workplace

Sonos in the workplace

Sonos is the perfect solution for providing music in the workplace, whether you want to liven up your office or are looking to create ambience in a customer-facing environment. As the most advanced multi-room music system in the world, you have the flexibility to play the same music to all of your speakers, or different tracks to groups or individual speakers, each with their own volume controls.

Sonos is ideal for creating a quiet ambience in a restaurant area, or a louder soundtrack in a bar for example. With Sonos, you could distribute sound around a showroom, but play something entirely different in a client reception area. You could also add impact to meeting room presentations with the Playbar and Sub, all of which can be managed from a simple-to-use interface from your Mac or iOS device. Here’s a rundown of why Sonos is awesome in the workplace:

Access to every song available

Controlled from a central app, Sonos has access to more music than any other system available. You can stream from all the major services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Tune In, Google Play Music, Soundcloud, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster and Tidal as well as locally stored music from an iTunes library or shared storage.

The Sonos app lets you create playlists that combine tracks from any of these sources to give you complete flexibility. Because you can add your own locally stored files to the playlists, you can easily add your own custom announcements into the mix. The Sonos Connect even lets you add external sources such as CD players into the mix, or even a public address microphone for announcements. Multiple users can access the app to control their own area, whether that’s via computer, smartphone or tablet, and its password protected so that your students can’t take over.

Simple to set up

Audio is streamed between the app and the speakers over your existing WiFi network meaning that installation and setup is very simple. It’s easily scalable too – you can start with just one Play series speaker and add more as your needs grow. Since every speaker is self-contained with its built in amplifier, there is no need for a separate amp rack or excessive cabling. If you have existing installed ceiling speakers, or want to use external weatherproof speaker to bring sound to an outdoor area, you can add the Sonos Connect Amp to drive these too.

Perfect sound – even in non-ideal conditions

Although the Sonos range is visually attractive, there will be plenty of situations where you’ll want to place your speakers more discreetly. Often, this would result in compromised acoustics but not with Sonos – the free Trueplay app analyses the acoustics of your room and speaker placement and adjusts the speaker response to produce a perfect response even in the most non-ideal conditions. That means you’re free to desk-mount your speakers, or place them on one of the dedicated Flexson floor stands, wall-mounts or ceiling mounts and site them wherever is least obtrusive.

If you want to experience the power of Sonos for yourself, you’re welcome to come to our Golden Square demonstration suite and immerse yourself in top-quality sound.

Sonos in the home

Sonos in the home

Bring your home to life with music – Sonos allows you to play what you want, where you want. As the most advanced multi-room music system in the world, Sonos gives you the flexibility to play the same music on all of your speakers, or different tracks on groups or individual speakers, each with their own volume controls.

Play one track in the kitchen while the kids listen to something totally different in their rooms (and limit their volumes to avoid annoying the neighbours!) or play the same song throughout the house. Create a full cinema experience in the lounge by combining a Playbar and Sub with a pair of Play 1s or 3s working as a 5.1 setup, and then separate them to put them back in different rooms when you have finished. The possibilities are endless, but why is Sonos so good in the home?

Access to every song available

Controlled from a central app, Sonos has access to more music than any other system available. You can stream from all the major services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Tune In, Google Play Music, Soundcloud, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster and Tidal as well as locally stored music from an iTunes library or shared storage.

Sonos in production

Sonos in production

The flexibility, ease of use and straight-up sound quality of Sonos wireless media systems has made Sonos one of the most recognisable brands for audio playback. It’s now installed in millions of homes and businesses around the world, and has become so prevalent that it has almost become a standard.

Sonos is rapidly becoming the reference speaker for content producers – after all, if you wan to check what your content sounds like, it makes sense to be referencing it on the same system that your audience will be using. So, what is it that makes Sonos so good?

Exception sound quality

Sonos speakers aren’t your average speakers – they have a studio heritage. Giles Martin of Abbey Road Studios has been involved in the development of their current range of speakers after being impressed with a pair of Play:1’s. Sonos asked for his feedback, and, based on his advice, were able to further enhance the sound quality of their speakers. As a result, they are now used as a reference point in one of the most famous studios in the world.

The ideal speaker for non ideal acoustics

Acoustically treating a room to ensure optimal sound for playback can be a very expensive process. Sonos have developed Trueplay – an app which analyses the acoustics of your room and speaker placement and adjusts the speaker response accordingly. Free to use, all you need is an iOS device and in under 10 minutes you can calibrate your speakers to produce a near-perfect response, even in the most non-ideal conditions.

Complete flexibility

Audio is streamed between the app and the speakers over your existing WiFi network, meaning that installation and setup is very simple. It’s easily scalable too – you can start with just one Play series speaker and add more as your needs grow. Use a single speaker, or add a second to make a stereo pair, then add another speaker or two to a dedicated listening room and send your finished mixes there. Why not build a 5.1 setup with more speakers and a sub, and even preview a video project on a client speaker by adding the Playbar.

Every Sonos speaker on your network becomes available as part of a scalable listening system, where all speakers can be controlled individually or grouped as you like.

Sound from any source

With Sonos, you can stream music from all the major services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Tune In, Google Play Music, Soundcloud, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster and Tidal among others. You can also stream locally stored music from an iTunes library on your device or from shared storage.

If you have external sources you want to connect, the Sonos Connect even lets you add CD players, DVDs, tape decks or vinyl into the mix. No matter what you want to reference your sound against, Sonos puts it right under your fingertips.

Aesthetics

Lets be honest – good looks are important if you’re dealing with clients, and Sonos speakers are certainly no ugly ducklings. They integrate easily into any environment with the dedicated range of Flexion desk-mounts, floor stands, wall-mounts or ceiling mounts.

If you want to experience the power of Sonos for yourself, you’re welcome to come to our Golden Square demonstration suite and immerse yourself in top-quality sound.

Sonos in education

Sonos in education

Providing an AV system that can work throughout a school can be both costly and difficult to implement (even more so if you’re hoping to control volume levels independently, and play different audio in different areas). There’s lots of cabling involved, including zoning amps to control volume levels and distribution, as well as expensive touch panels and media servers.

A Sonos system streamlines AV implementation and provides you with a cost effective, easy to use and scalable system that can stream any audio to any speaker or group of speakers on the network. Obviously, we’re not encouraging you to start playing background music in classrooms (although your students might like it) but there’s always a strong demand for music in concourses, cafeterias, reception areas, galleries, sports halls, performance areas. Sonos gives you full control over sound throughout your school.

Access to every song available

Controlled from a central app, Sonos has access to more music than any other system available. You can stream from all the major services such as Apple Music, Spotify, Tune In, Google Play Music, Soundcloud, Deezer, Amazon Music, Napster and Tidal as well as locally stored music from an iTunes library or shared storage.
