The Works with Sonos certification program certifies that the integration meets the Sonos high bar for experience, and that products will seamlessly connect with the Sonos Home Sound System. The certified "Works with Sonos" receivers will be supported by Sonos.�

"For more than 70 years, Onkyo has been at the forefront of delivering premium sound and adding Sonos compatibility enables custom installers and home theater fans access to Sonos' renowned whole-home audio," said Don Milks, director of product localization for Onkyo USA.� "Now the Sonos app that you are familiar with can stream your favorite content to your network receiver adding tremendous value and convenience to any system."

"Onkyo has a well-deserved reputation for innovation in the home theater category and is a welcome ecosystem partner, adding Sonos' functionality to their line-up of premium brands," said Andrew Volyanetes, Director of the US Installed Solutions channel for Sonos. "Working with Onkyo and Onkyo USA demonstrates steps we are taking in our larger partner strategy. We want to work closely with the manufacturers that custom installers use most, like Onkyo. We also love that the integration allows our customers to decrease their time to music and get that magical Sonos experience when using a non-Sonos speaker."
