As Sonos wireless music streaming players are so popular now, we often get asked whether Sonos can be played directly into a pair of Bang & Olufsen Beolab speakers. This is easy to set up, the best Sonos player to choose is the Sonos Connect (this was previously known as the Sonos ZP80, ZP90 or ZP100).
Here are the cables you need to connect a pair of Beolab speakers to a Sonos ZP80/90/100 or Sonos Connect:-
Option 1) Earlier Beolab speakers with RCA/phono line inputs, including Beolabs 1, 5, 3000, 4000 (up to 2007), 4500, 5000, 6000, 8000 and Penta:-
Option 2) Later Beolab speakers without RCA/phono line inputs, including Beolabs 3, 9, 4000 (2008 onwards), 6002 and 8002:-
Option 3) More recent Beolab speakers with RJ45 line inputs, including Beolabs 12 and 14:-
Please also add one of these adapters for each speaker: http://soundsheavenly.com/bang-olufsen/30–rj45-pl-socket-.html
Option 4) The latest Beolab speakers with RCA/phono line inputs, including Beolabs 17, 18, 19 and 20:-
Please set both speakers to “Line” mode using the small switch next to the input sockets. You need one cable for each pair of speakers.
Volume control is directly from the Sonos app using your smart phone or tablet. The Sonos Connect can be easily hidden out of view, so all your friends will think you have the full B&O music system instead of just the speakers!
