SONOS Bridge:

In order to connect to the SONOS PLAY:1, you'll need a SONOS Bridge. Thankfully, SONOS is now including a free bridge with the purchase of their other hardware. Other than that, this would end up being a very expensive proposition. As it is, when priced at $219CDN (currently), the SONOS isn't that cheap. Things like the bridge help negate the price a bit.

As far as what the bridge looks like, you can check it out below. Suffice to say it's a simple device that is a gateway to the SONOS products and takes care of things like synchronizing, identity and more of the SONOS speakers connected to your network. It comes with a pair of Ethernet connections so that you can plug this into your network and then the PLAY:1 into it if you are running out of ports on your router/network switch.
