Airplay 2 setup

I have a Playbar and 2 Sonos Ones. The Playbar is connected to my TV and the Ones are my surrounds. I cannot find my Ones via Airplay. I read that I won’t be able to use these Ones as targets for airplay when I have my Playbar as the central speaker connected to the TV.

Is this correct? With this setup, I can’t use Airplay?

 

Thanks

That is correct. The way the surrounds connect to the system is via the Playbar means that Airplay cannot see them - they are slaves of the Playbar.

In addition to what @John B has said there is a work-around...albeit at cost.:thinking:  

  1. Purchase a Sonos One SL as stand-alone speaker.
  2. Start airplay on it and group it to your Playbar.
