THANK YOU Edward R. I prefer that as well. 

OCD audiophiles are always so amusing. ;)

Thank you very kindly. Glad to entertain. 😜

But really, I am simply asking for the creators (Sonos) to provide full functionality out of their app. What’s so unreasonable about that, when we spend hundreds or even thousands on their hardware. 😊

Hi everyone, with the 10.6.2 update today, the delay issue should be fixed. There are also some new settings that you can use with your line-in to adjust the delay (still a minimum of 75 ms) in new ways. Make sure you’ve set the line-in to uncompressed, and you can pick your delay now.

Ryan S, 

this thread is about source level volume, WHICH IS STILL NOT FIXED. You still cannot select level 9. Delay was never an issue for me. 
when, oh when, will source level 9 be fixed?

please respond as to the above, Ryan

You’re correct @Tlcocks, the main issue on this thread is as you said, my apologies. I was updating all the line-in settings issues that I had flagged. My apologies, it’s been a long week.

This issue is still being worked on, but the fix hasn’t been finalized yet. I’ll let you know when it’s up.

I also just noticed this. The source in level will not stay at 10 for me. It resets back to 8 each time. Sonos, any update on when a fix may be expected ?

G9010086,

if you have the same program bug we’ve been talking about here, you’ll access level 10 by selecting level 9.  you’ll hear the double step-up in volume, but you’ll have to back up in the app 2 screens to see the source level set to where it really is at 10.  in all of this, level 9 is not available.  selecting level 10 simply keeps you on the previous level you were on.  but there is no level 9 until Sonos fixes this bug.

and I continue to find that even for many 80’s albums I own, level 9 would be optimal, as 10 is slightly distorted on some passages, while 8 leaves me wanting a little more pre amp juice, loosely speaking.  for most albums I own, I've verified that compared to their digital versions on Qobuz or Tidal, 8 is quieter and 10 is louder.  yes, I can happily listen at 8 when 10 distorts, but the perfectionist in me does very much want this feature fully functioning again.

Mine is stuck on 1.  I have to select 10 for my turntable every time I want to play something.  It reverts to 10 when I change the source again!

shouldn’t be stuck on 1,  select 9.  then close and reopen the app.  should be on 10

I’ll give that a try later.  Thanks

My Connect has done this for quite some time. Luckily, I don’t need level 9.
Incidentally (months later, obviously) though I read through this thread and there were multiple posts listing a component here and a component there, I don't have a clear picture of your signal chain or even what turntable and pre you’re running to the Play5. Does your pre not have a trim adjustment? Or alternatively adding gain and then adjusting the Sonos line sensitivity  lower? My Connect receives line-levels best all the way down at between 2 and 4. This is naturally all relative to particular setups, but given the bits of kit you’ve listed off, surely there is a way around this further back in the chain than the Sonos’ input sensitivity, no?

No with Rega Fono MM Mk3 there is now trim adjustment

Badge +1

NO trim adjustments. Sorry
