Sonos bridge has died, can I replace with a boost?


My bridge seems to have died, no lights anywhere on it, I can’t find a suitable adapter to try to rule that out, I may order one but if that doesn’t work can I order a boost instead of it? I have all original Sonos speakers, 2x play 1’s, 2x play 3’s, 2x play 5’s and a Sub.

Thanks in advance,

Jason.

I'd try the new power supply first too, it is inexpensive and more than likely to work.

If you can wire any of your Sonos speakers you might be able to get by without the Bridge or Boost, that should be tried if possible.

Only then you might think about a replacement. Consider getting a Play 1 or One instead of a Boost, nearly as good for SonosNet (a bit less noise rejection I think) and for a few bucks more than a Boost you end up with another speaker.

You can replace it with a Boost, but there is an adapter available from Amazon (the adapter is a known weak point):
