On my other Sonos Plays, I use the top button to restart the previous service/music that I was listeting to. Way more convenient/faster than using the iOS app…

 

No such trick on the Port without any button on this box, right?

Hi User573051

You are correct. There are no touch controls on the port. I suspect the thinking was that the Port would be bringing Sonos audio to a device with it’s own volume/play/pause controls.

The exception being a Turn Table (with built-in or external pre-amp) connected via the Ports RCA-in using powered speakers via the Ports RCA-out. However, some powered speakers have a volume remote.

Ikea has a wireless remote that will work with Port to give play/pause/volume /next/previous (almost like the two planned it this way )
