Introduction

Adding a single Sonos device to your home is only the starting point for creating a multi-room audio experience. Up to 32 total devices can be added to a Sonos audio system. Each one can be wirelessly controlled via the Sonos app and has access to the music libraries located on your mobile devices and home computers, as well as several streaming audio services. This guide will go over how to add a new Sonos device to an existing Sonos audio system in your home.
