Excuse the possibly silly question, but I am new to Sonos. I have a Playbase and 2 of the new Sonos Ones with Alexa, and I am loving it. I have 64k songs in my iTunes library and I have just discovered that I can link my iMac to Sonos. After quite a while, however, I was informed on my iMac and iPhone that there was insufficient space to complete the operation. So, my question is: where is there insufficient space? That is to say, where is it trying to store anything? I assumed that the iTunes library would somehow link to Sonos, but not copy any data/songs, just links. Can someone please help me to understand what's happening? If the library is too large, is there a way of selecting songs/albums/playlists?

"Where" is on the speakers. Each speaker is essentially a small computer, with a limited amount of memory. Sonos says that 65K tracks is the upper limit, but that's also affected by additional data tags in each file, so your milage may vary. But you're right, Sonos only keeps track of a list of pointers, not the actual songs themselves.
What I'd recommend in your case is to create Playlists on your Mac, in iTunes, and then import the playlists.
