Pioneer and Onkyo join ‘Works with SONOS’ programme

Pioneer & Onkyo have announced that it has joined ‘Works with SONOS’ programme allowing products to connect with the Sonos Home Sound System seamlessly. For this to work, the audio output from the Onkyo/Pioneer components will need to be connected to a Sonos CONNECT Wireless Music System unit.

When set up, a user will be able to play music via the Sonos app and the Pioneer or Onkyo component will…

1) Automatically wake up
2) Automatically switch to the right input connection
3) Allow the user to select the volume level via the Sonos app
4) Play the music

A firmware upgrade will be required to add the ‘Works with SONOS’ functionality – instructions on how to do so will be posted at www.pioneer-audiovisual.eu and www.eu.onkyo.com
