I have a connect that I have connected to an older ADCOM power (125 watts) amp. The volume that I get from this setup is on the very low side. Has any one tried a similar setup and what were your results? Is the connect not able to drive a power amp of the size that I am using?
I couldn't find a topic where people could share what future Sonos products we want / there may be. Speakers: -Sonos Three (Play 3 with Alexa + Google Assistant) -Sonos Five (Play 5 with Alexa + Google Assistant) -Small waterproof speaker (for garden, swimmingpool, bathroom) [Play 1 size] -Ceiling speakers Other: -Sonos turntable (wireless with 3.5mm input and speaker input terminals) -Sonos screen (similar look and design of Echo Show, displays song and playlist info, allows music control)
When I play flac files from my music library can anyone confirm if the digital output from the coax/optical connections of my Connect unit are simply "pass through" of the flac files data? The reason I ask is that I'm considering the use of a separate Digital to Analogue converter to improve sound but this would not be effective if the Connect unit is manipulating the data before sending to these digital outputs.
Considering buying a Play 5 for both Spotify and to hook up the to a conventional high end stereo CD player (please don’t try to convince me to rip several thousand CDs). In settings I read you adjust to play automatically from line in. Pop in CD, press play, bingo. Would this change of settings interfere with or override Alexa because Sonos is looking only to “line in”? In other words, after I play the CD, can I just bark into Sonos: “Alexa, play What is Love”? Tx
Hi! I have two terminal posts snapped off a zp 100. Sonos will not supply spare parts. They will do a out of warranty replacement, for a fee. I don't really need a new amplifier, all I need is to connect two loudspeaker cables to the slightly broken amp I have. Has anyone any experience of sourcing and fitting replacement terminal posts? Or, failing that, removing the cover and soldering the speaker cables into place? Thanks
I have a Connect hooked up to an amp that powers some outdoor speakers. When I select the speakers to play by themselves the speakers work great and the volume works perfectly. However, when I create a group with my 3 other speakers (Play 1's and Play 3), the volume drops considerably and I am unable to turn it up to an acceptable level. (even after maxing out the amp and the volume level in the SOnos app.) Any ideas as to why this is happening?
I currently have 3x Sonos Play One and 3x Sonos Play 3. For christmas I was thinking of getting my dad a record player and either a connect / Play 5 so he can utilize his record collection. Can anyone reccomend: -A good record player to use with Sonos that looks and sounds good -Whether to get a Connect or Play 5 - Do I need an amp i.e. Connect:Amp or Play 5 with amp * Also with either Connect / Play 5 would I be able to use some sort of splitter to route the sound from my tv to Sonos (rather than keep switching the input from record player / TV) Thanks in advance
I’m in the process of setting up 2 separate outdoor areas with wired speakers that I want to set up as 2 Sonos zones. I understand that when setting up wired speakers, you wire each pair of speakers to its own connect amp to form the 2 zones. My question is, do both connect Amps need to be connected to my router, or does just one of the connect Amps need to be connected to the router? The rest of my house is a 5.1 in the living room and play 3’s in the bedroom ‘s and garage; once one of the connect Amps are connected to my router, can the rest of the house run wirelessly or would you recommend other devices be plugged into the router.
I bought a house where the the downstairs is hardwired with 6 small (i.e. 3 double cube) Bose speakers inside and 2 Yamaha waterproof speakers on the deck. The speakers are driven by an old Pioneer AV receiver connected via an SS4 speaker selector with impedance protection. I have a Sonos Connect attached to the receiver to stream music on a hard disk attached to my router. I also have a CD player and a subwoofer connected to the receiver. I always play the same source on all 8 speakers and I’ve never had any problem playing all speakers at one time at a satisfactory volume through a single R/L pair of speaker outputs on the receiver. (Note this I don’t play surround material on this system - just basic stereo.) I want to replace the Pioneer receiver because it's too big, clunky and complicated for the space and what I need it to do. I also need to replace the Sonos Connect because it's one of the first units made and fails intermittently, requiring frequent resets. I’m think
So I have an echo tap which I connect to my sound bar via Bluetooth to play music through the sound bar via the tap. Looking to buy a sonos (or two) but want to know - can I multiroom with the sonos and sound bar - if the sound bar is connected to the tap? Put another way, can I use the tap like a sonos connect for my thrid party soundbar, enabling me to connect the soundbar to my sonos speakers using the tap? Does that make sense??
I'm considering joining the Sonos community by purchasing a Connect Amp to use with an existing pair of speakers. From the reading I've done here, it sounds like the speakers I plan to use will be ok. Can you please confirm? This would be two speakers only. The specs state 4 ohm, 40-200W. My intent is to only stream music (no TV stuff). Do I understand correctly, that the only equipment I need for this purpose is the Connect Amp, and the speakers? Is that right? (Well......and a phone/tablet.....) Thanks in advance, Kim
I need a connect and amp or not included but Something that has more INs and OUTs. Digital, Optical, and what not. My current solution is using a mixer and inputting that into the line in on a Connect Amp. Expensive and not so great quality of doing it. While you consider paying me as a developer consultant and tester, you also need a mobile device. I would control such device with a dash mounted tablet and post Sonos a DSP controller, multi amps. I would use a Connect but now back to the no flexibility and on inputs :(
