Sonos: add your own Internet radio stations

by Volker Weber

Heiko just installed his new Sonos yesterday and makes an interesting observation. He says the Internet Radio stations are not stressed enough as a major advantage of the Sonos sound system. If you go through your 900 Sat radios, you will find that some 800 are encrypted. On the Sonos however, every single one of the preloaded stations work. Out of the box. And you can add your own, as I just did with these SomaFM stations:

SomaFM Groove Salad

SomaFM Secret Agent

SomaFM Beat Blender

SomaFM Tag's Trance Trip

SomaFM cliphop idm

SomaFM Space Station

SomaFM Illinois Street Lounge

SomaFM Drone Zone

Simply click on Add New under the radio station list, and enter a name and the URL. The new station will be added under Favorite Stations:

sonos add radio

Update: Heiko just asked me for another station:

Ibiza Sonica



you're just a hell of a mother ;-)

Added all of them. Very nice.

Do you know that if you open the above URL without the listen.pls, you´ll get a status page of the shoutcast server plus song history.

A server I´m listening to a lot - if you like japanese music - is:

Auf mein Noxon gespielt, danke Volker.

Liegt jetzt genau neben Bayern 5 Aktuell (im Moment unter, leider ändern sie die Adresse ständig ohne irgendein Update auf den Servern bekanntzugeben).
