Setting up your first HEOS speaker

Once you have placed your speaker in your listening room and have downloaded the HEOS app, you are ready to configure your speaker for music playback. This involves following a few simple steps to get the speaker connected to your existing home network:

DO NOT connect the Ethernet cable if you are connecting your speaker to a wireless network. If you are connecting the speaker to a wired network, use an Ethernet cable to connect the speaker to your network or router.

Make sure your mobile device is connected to your wireless network (the same network you want your speakers connected to).

You can check this in the Settings - Wi-Fi menu of your iOS or Android device.


If your wireless network is secure, make sure you know the password to join your network.

Make sure you have the included Audio/Setup cable handy.
Launch the HEOS app on your mobile device.
icon App HEOS
Tap the “Setup Now” button at the top of the screen.
Follow the instructions to add the speaker to your wireless network.

The Wi-Fi settings from your mobile device will be copied to the speaker via the audio cable.
