I have a sound bar and two SL Ones. When watching certain movies the surround is louder than the voices coming from the sound bar and you can’t hear the people talk. Is there a way to turn down the SL Ones manually from the app. I’ve tried every option and it won’t let me turn them down or turn the sound bar up.
I have a new NAS on my network and it uses Samba 4.I get the highly informative ( ) error code of ‘900’ when trying to add it.I see threads and questions going back 4 years in this community asking for better Samba support from Sonos. The stock repsonses are simple promises to pass on the question to development teams.I don’t know how difficult it would be to add support for more modern Samba implementations but I do see there is a demand for it.What is wrong at Sonos that you ignore your users so readily and don’t even provide an explanation as to why you refuse to implement this apparently simple request?Your stock response seems to be to let the thread go until people stop reading it and then close it with a weak excuse.What sort of company are you?That said, I expect someone to respond with a weak answer and for this question to be closed with no action. THAT’s the type of company I see in action here...
Hi! I’m doing a little mod/add-on to my Sonos One (don’t ask what and why, long story 😅). My question is, how do you think this construction may affect WIFI-reception? I’ve marked the places where I think the antennas are, do you think the metal wire may interfere in some way?Thankful for all input! Have an awesome Sunday!
Hi,First time posting here so appreciate any help with this problem.I recently purchased the Beam 2 to connect to my LG OLED A1 tv (EArc) . Current setup:LG OLED A1 TV - EArc connected to Beam 22 x One SL added as surrounds, SUB Gen 3 also connected.iPad SOnos app - Spotify musicTrue play completed and when playing via TV (Netflix onboard TV app ) or Mac Mini HDMI to LG HDMI, sound is incredible , can see that ATMOS is going through via the SONOS system playing screen.I also have a stereo pair also setup in lounge area for music.Previously before the BEAM 2 addition, I was playing Spotify via the SONOS app to 4x ONE SL’s and SUB and the sound was amazing , clear punchy bass. Now that the the beam 2 and surrounds are added and I play music from SONOS selecting the Living room bonded 5.1 setup the bass is lacking and very lacklustre . I can manually turn up the SUB audio , but its different , not clear and very muddy. When I unbond the sub and join it to the stereo pair, bass is clear
Hi SONOS community,We have SONOS in a luxury lounge and we need to stop playing the music and play emergency announcements when facility management broadcast them.Is there a solution for this requirement? I was hoping to have some input channel and maybe together with IFTT setup a flow.Thank you in advance for your comments…Ciao,M
Hi, I’m trying to optimize my home WiFi networks. I have two running: one is off of the Comcast router, the second runs an Orbi mesh network (it’s a 3-story, narrow rowhome). Most of my devices run off of the Orbi network (which is connected to the cable router via an unmanaged switch). Since it’s a 3 story home, I purchased a Sonos Boost to support speakers on every floor. And of course the router is on the ground floor.Does it make sense to put the Boost onto the cable router (through the network switch), or with most other WiFi devices, into one of the Orbi devices? Can the boost work as a wireless bridge (the documentation is vague), in which case I could put it on the second floor? Finally, can most of the devices in the home (including the iOS controller and Alexa, be on a different WiFi network than Sonos?)I’m trying to figure out how best to configure this, and would really appreciate your advice! Thanks all...
I currently have a 5.1 surround set up using a gen 1 sub, beam, and 2 One SLs. My sub randomly stopped working the other day and upon trying to reconnect/reset/repair everything, it will not play any audio. Prior to it stop working it was making a random periodic popping sound. This is when I tried resetting it and reconnecting. At first it wouldn't connect, now it'll show it connects fine but will not play any audio when linked to my 5.1 or my other Sonos one in the kitchen. Is the sub just toast now? I've also tried using WiFi and Ethernet, no luck with either. Here's the diagnostic code: 1200403642
Hey Community! Sorry to sound like such a novice but I have a Sonos Beam, two Ones as my surrounds and a Sub currently set up as my TV surround setup.I have bought a turntable which I wanted to connect to my speaker setup through a Sonos Amp.I have set this up today and it seems that the Amp cannot connect / stream to my existing system as this wants to set up a new room with this as the main component. Is there a way I can stream my Amp inline audio to my existing system so I don’t have to reset up a system every time I want to listen to my turntable? Thanks in advance!
Excuse my naivete, but still learning the Sonos system. Confused on licensing with media services. We have several groups of rooms. Does each group require a separate license? For instance, in Soundtrack Player (business version of Spotify) you license each zone. Does a zone correspond to a room in Sonos?
Hey, everyone!I use a USB plugged into my router to play a few songs on my Sonos. I used to be able to connect this via Music Library Setup - Add Shared Music Folder - //192.168.0.1/volume9*voume9 is just the name my usb takes when plugged into the router* Now, when I try to do this (on my iPhone), I get this message “The computer 192.168.0.1 refused to let the Sonos Product connect to it.” I also tried it on my Mac and get “There is no shared folder ‘volume9’ on the computer ‘192.168.0.1’.” I logged into my router and ‘volume9’ is still there, is not password protected, the sharing feature is enabled. I also removed the USB and reinstalled in on my router just to make sure that wasn’t the issue. So, how do I fix this? UPDADTE: I changed the wifi I was connected to on my phone to 2.4ghz and it found the USB!
I have 2 x Sonos Subs (Gen 3) connected to my home theatre system in my Living Room - Arc + OneSL (L) + One SL(R)I have purchased 2 more OneSL for another room and want to separate one of the Subs from my existing system to pair with the new speakers. How do I remove just 1 of the Subs as the tab in Settings just nominates ‘Remove Subs’
I have many speakers around the house. Sonos1, Play 1, Play 3, Play Base, Move, and Roam. Until the other day when the power went out everything worked fine. When the power came back on all units reconnected except the Roam and the Move. After multiple factory resets and re-adds (per the guidance on the app) I am still not able to add either of these to the network. Spent a couple of hours on this now so it’s time to post and get some group help or be contacted directly by a technical SONOS person who can resolve this for me ASAP. Quite frustrating that this is not easier. And both units behaving the same when adding and the along the way status messages. Appreciate the help
Good afternoon all hoping you can help. First off I’m not the most technical. We live on a school site and each house has its own WiFi plus an over arching school WiFi and a guest WiFi. I cannot seem to be able to connect to the system. I can get as far as the Playbar making it’s own WiFi and my phone connecting to that. However when it tries to transfer over to the WiFi of our home it doesn’t work. there is one other system connected to the school WiFi and my Sonia app will try and pick that one up. That house is over 800 meters away so it is a WiFi issue. can anyone help with this? kind regards Ian
I am remodeling my den and changing out my in-ceiling speakers to Sonos Architectural. My bedroom sits above and I am doing some soundproofing. Part of that entails putting the speakers in enclosures. I am trying to decide if the Sonance Acoustic Enclosure will fit the Sonos Architectural ceiling speakers. Everything tells me yes, but it would be great if someone has done this.Enclosures:https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sonance-acoustic-enclosure-for-select-sonance-visual-performance-6-5-round-speakers-each-unfinished-wood/6290835.p?skuId=6290835&ref=212&loc=1&ref=212&loc=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI4Lb1_q6x8wIVsWpvBB0UtAEGEAQYAyABEgIKCPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.dshttps://www.sonance.com/in-wall-in-ceiling/visual-performance/accessories/visualperformanceseriesacousticenclosuresThe CAD drawing of the Sonance Enclosure calls for a 8.20” cutout while the Sonos speakers call for a 8.25” cutout, which I don’t think is an issue. The Sonance speaker is 4.72” tall, while the Sonos is 4.84”,
I have the surround sound set (Beam, Sub, One x2) and just got the Five + Pro-ject T1 package. Everything is in a medium size square-ish living room. Based on what I’ve read so far, the Beam and the Five do not play well together (though I may be mistaken). I have an idea as to how I set up multiple rooms and multiple groups from those rooms to have functionally two different setups, which I’m comfortable operating exclusively from the Sonos app:Room 1- Sub + 2x One Room 2- Five +Pro-ject Room 3- Beam Group 1 (primarily for music)- Room 1 + Room 2 Group 2 (primarily for TV/ movies)- Room 1 + Room 3Is creating multiple Groups with components from the same Rooms feasible? Any and all thoughts/ tips are very much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
I have a play 5 that’s great, but moved into a new house with a really good sound system. Can I use the headphone port on the play 5 to connect to my amp and basically use the old play 5 instead of a Sonos ‘Port’? I understand this would mute the play 5 speaker. Thanks
I have two completely different music setups - the first is a Sonos network with 4 S2 speakers and a Roam. The second comprises Radford amp plus Cambridge pre-amp, Linn Selekt, Tannoy Arden speakers. I like to listen to music on the Ardens but often would like to send a song to a Sonos speaker so my wife can hear in her den! Is there any way that I could connect the two systems in this way. I use Qobuz a lot and whilst this is accessible through Sonos or through the Selekt I want them joined! Is this possible? Many thanks.
This is my first post on the forum, and I’m hoping a problem can be solved.I have a Playbar I bought in November 2019 connected to a Sony 77-inch TV I bought in August 2020. These are co-located and connected with the optical fibre cable. Everything operates perfectly except for the remote control aspect. Both the TV and the Playbar have their latest firmware builds.The TV and all its functions respond perfectly to the remote control over at least an 80 degree angle on each side of centre of the TV, i.e., almost the full hemisphere of control, whereas the Playbar volume and mute functions respond only to about 45 degrees on each side of centre, half of the hemisphere. In my family room, because of its design, the TV and Playbar are in their “best” positions, and I’m wishing to be able to use the full ± 80 degrees angle with the remote because of seating arrangements.On the TV sound settings, I have selected “external sound system” instead of “internal speakers”. Unfortunately, in this
I can’t thank folks enough for the advice on these boards. I’ve learned a ton, enjoyed myself, and your advice brought me from a very spotty system to a matrix that’s all green with 50+ strength vertices. (S1, 14 components of mixed vintage on 3 floors, SonosNet off an Eero used as a router).BUT I was still getting drops when streaming from my turntable to a Connect to 3 nearby rooms. All rooms would drop out for a second or two then come back.It was solvable for 1-2 rooms with line in compression plus a 2 sec input delay and airplay as source type, but 3 rooms would still drop out.Sonos tech said there was a lot of interference in my space and I’m sure he’s right.I needed another Line In anyway so got a Port (just as a line in, so I was agnostic on the digital out kerfluffle).I was hoping the Port’s stronger WiFi radio mentioned by ratty might help and thought the add’l processing power for ADC might help (the old connect seemed (?) to drop more often as it heated up).Just hooked i
