Hi, I'm thinking about buying a Sonos Play 5. One thing I've always wondered while I've been thinking of buying it is, if I go to someone else's house right... if I plug it in via the 3.5mm headphone jack, do I still need an internet connection? Like I was wondering if I was to use it for a party or something, would I need to connect it to their network or would it work regardless of internet if I plug it in via 3.5mm jack?
Thanks

But you would want to turn it on before leaving your home. It requires being turned on via the controller. It does not automatically turn on when you plug something in (the first time).

You should be able to set it up to auto-play from Line-In.
That wont require a WiFi connection.
