Apple Music has launched. Your Sonos system is currently sitting there collecting dust while Zane Lowe is spinning those black circles like a man on fire. You don’t have to be left out of the party. After all, you want to be part of this 24/7, worldwide stream of music goodness.

Here’s how you can get Apple Music pumping over your Sonos System with AirPlay.

You Need:

Getting’r Done:

  • Plug your Airport Express audio port into the Sonos Connect with an RCA (male) to 1/4 Inch Audio Cable (male).
  • Open Airport Utility, and configure the Airport Express so you can connect to the system over AirPlay from iOS or OS X.
  • Open your Sonos application, and make sure your Sonos Connect is online, and accessible (Connect Manual).
  • Group your speakers with your Sonos Connect.
    • To group using iOS, bring up the Rooms screen by touching the Room name at the top of your screen.
    • On the Rooms screen, touch ‘Group’ on the Room you wish to group with, and make sure you’ve selected your Connect as one of the “rooms”.
    • Check the boxes on the speakers (or rooms) you wish to group, then tap ‘done’.
  • Open the Apple Music app on your iPhone / iPad.
  • Pick the music you want to listen to, or the Beats One stream.
  • Click the AirPlay icon next to the audio timeline, and select your newly named AirPort Express connection.

Boom. Apple Music streaming over your Sonos system.
