Can I Add a Sonos Port to My Older Lifestyle System?
A client who had the opportunity to experience a Sonos system at a friend's place reached out, inquiring about the possibility of integrating Sonos music into their existing Bose Lifestyle system. The answer is affirmative, but there's an important caveat to consider. You can indeed incorporate Sonos music into your Bose Lifestyle system by connecting a Sonos Port to the Aux input on the Bose Lifestyle console. This setup allows you to enjoy Sonos streaming music throughout your Bose system, including any additional music zones you may have. However, it's crucial to note that you won't have the ability to control your Bose system using the Sonos app.
Playing Sonos music through your Bose Lifestyle system involves a two-step process. First, you'll use the Sonos app to select your desired Sonos music source. Then, using the Bose remote, you'll need to select "Aux" as your source. For music zones, you can select "Aux" using the Bose room remote to play Sonos music in those zones. Essentially, Sonos music becomes an additional audio source for your Bose system. The conveniences of voice or smart device control and the ability to play different sources in each zone, unfortunately, do not apply in this setup. Source selection and volume control will be managed using your existing Bose remote controls.
