Types of Sonos Devices Available
Before learning to connect your device to your workout machine it is important to learn how many types of Sonos devices are there.
There are the following three main types of Sonos devices most popular on the market and these are actually what people use to connect Peloton with Sonos.
- The Sonos Beam: This is the most popular device for people who want to listen to audio on their Peloton bike or tread.
It is a sound bar that has Alexa built-in and can be connected directly to your TV by HDMI ARC connection.
- The Sonos One: This is a compact speaker which can easily be moved from one room to another. You can set it up with your Peloton bike and listen to the audio while you are cycling or running on the tread.
- The Sonos Roam: The Sonos Roam is a much more compact version of the device which allows you to easily carry the device with you in a gym bag or in your pocket.
Although they look small and compact, one thing that I love about them is that they always have a punch when it comes to sound quality.

First of all, I have seen many “wanna-be” instructors trying to overcomplicate the problem. I am here to tell you that it is not as hard as people think and with the help of a few simple steps, you will be able to connect your Peloton device with Sonos.
Basically, it allows you to connect your Sonos system to pretty much any speaker out there. All you need is a Bluetooth receiver that has to be connected to the line in.
Trust me I have done it and there is nothing so difficult about this. Here is a step-by-step approach to do it without messing things up.
- Purchase a Bluetooth receiver first (I am using the “1Mii B06)
The next thing you need to do is to connect the red and the white jack provided in the box to your Sonos Connect Amp. This step is very useful especially if you have non-Sonos speakers.
Turn on your Sonos and also turn on your Bluetooth on the device.
On your phone, go to the “Line in”.
Select Bluetooth on your Peloton tablet and find your Sonos device
If you have done all the steps I mentioned here you will hear a beep tone of connectivity and you will be able to hear the sound coming out of your Sonos device.
Now you have successfully connected your Peloton with Sonos and can enjoy listening to the audio while you are working out.
Common Problems Faced When Connecting Peloton To Sonos
Although it is not so hard to connect these two devices together, still some people have faced difficulties.
One of the most common problems that many people have faced is that their device does not find the Sonos Connect Amp.
This problem can be solved by turning off your Bluetooth and then restarting it again.
Another issue could be that you are trying to connect your Peloton with multiple Sonos devices.
You need to make sure that you are only connecting one Sonos device with your Peloton otherwise it will not work.
Finally, if none of the methods I have mentioned here worked for you then I would suggest consulting a technician or doing more research into the problem.
Things To keep in Mind While Connecting Peloton To Sonos
Even though we have talked about some of the most common problems that people face when it comes to connecting their Peloton bike or tread with Sonos.
Even though both devices are almost the same there is still a difference in the processor in both. Oh! we are talking about the Sonos Roam and the move.
You may notice that the Sonos app move doesn’t show up in the Sonos app when in Bluetooth mode even though the Roam shows directly.
However, when it comes to connecting the devices over Wi-Fi there won’t be any issue.
Apart from that, you should also keep in mind that if you are using the Sonos Move device you will be able to play the audio of your Peloton bike or tread over a single speaker only.
However, when it comes to the Sonos Move, you can simply use it to play the audio with your wider Sonos system.
