Please note, this requires a RaspberryPi 2/3 – this will not work on the Original models. Why would you want to do this? Maybe you want to listen to Deezer or Spotify on your Sonos, but don’t have a premium subscription..
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR USERS OF RASPBIAN JESSIE LITE – you will also need to install git:
sudo apt-get install git
Then on with the install..
apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup | sudo bash
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_4.x | bash
apt-get install nodejs
npm install airsonos -g
Add this line
sudo /usr/bin/airsonos &
so it looks like this:
#!/bin/sh -e # # rc.local # # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel. # Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other # value on error. # # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution # bits. # # By default this script does nothing. # Print the IP address _IP=$(hostname -I) || true if [ "$_IP" ]; then printf "My IP address is %s\n" "$_IP" fi sudo /usr/bin/airsonos & exit 0
Ctrl X and then Y to save and exit, now reboot..
after a short wait, airsonos will enumerate all your devices and they should a appear as airplay targets on iphones macs etc..
Also, be aware there is usually a short delay of ~5 seconds before you will start hearing sound..
