We have around 10 SONOS devices in the house of which 8 are Connect:AMP. All in the basement with wires into the rooms. Now - one Connect:AMP is responding extremely slow when accessing it. That slows down the whole experience of teh Sonos System and is pretty annoying. All Connect:AMP are connected via ethernet. We tried to exchange the Ethernet-Cable with one of the Connect:AMP that show now issue. It did not improve anything. Once i one up the Sonos App it takes about 10 seconds before it displays the current status of the Device. Any idea what i could do? Some sort of Reset/full reset.....or is it broken?
My issue is I have three Play 1's and one Connect with a turntable/preamp connected to it. My internet/router is plugged into a single Boost and I direct connected my Connect to the Boost. My turntable cuts out though and I have to jack the volume way up. I'm wondering if I have it set up correctly. Might need some walking through. Help!
I have a Technics turntable, and a Kenwood KR- a56R Stereo Receiver. I would like to get this hooked up to the sonos system in my house. A couple of questions, this is assuming I need to buy the CONNECT: - There is not a "Line Out" or even RCA Out option on my reciever. The ONLY out options are to Speakers, and are the old Speaker wire types. Do I connect the Speaker Out to the CONNECT? In order to do this, I will need Speaker Wire to RCA adaptation I am assuming. - DO I lose quality here? I.E. the Receiver has multiple Speaker Out terminal spots. If I only connect 1 "speaker out" to the CONNECT, do I lose the stereo effect? - What would be the best speaker set up for this arrangement? Currently in that room, I have a Sound Bar (for the TV) and 2 PLAY 1 speakers (Surround) and a subwoofer. Should I add a 5th? Thanks!
I'm currently using an Echo via line in and all works pretty well. Just today though, I've noticed that the Echo is ungrouping my office and kitchen speakers (Echo in kitchen) as the Echo must be sending the odd pulse which is switching the kitchen to the line in input. Anyone know how to prevent this (save unplugging it which would certainly cure it!)? Thanks
I have some speakers wired to a sonos ConnectAmp through a speaker selector. What I want to do is to put a switch in each room to cut the line of each speaker in a room so I can switch off the speaker. Will this be possible to work without any problems? If I will have switch off all the speakers in every room and I start the sonos ConnectAmp to play sth from the controller will it be ok or it will do any problem to the system? Thank you in advanced, Antonis Georgiou
I am using a Sonos Connect Amp to connect my outdoor speakers. How do I make each of my two polk outdoor speakers into single high-performance stereo loudspeaker rather than left/right speakers in a high performance stereo pair? The two speakers are very far apart, so I need each to put out full range of sound rather than left/right stereo sound.
Hi, I have a Klipsch subwoofer, Sonos Playbar, 4 built-in wall speakers, and the Connect:amp. I'm not getting anything out of the subwoofer. is there a limit to how many speakers i can have connected to the connect:amp? the 4 built-in wall speakers are connected like this: https://www.sonos.com/graphics/rn/FAQ269/connect_amp-4_speakers.png
Hello everyone, just having a clear out and have 2 mint ( one unopened) Bridges. Are these things now completely redundant ? Have they any worth to anyone ? Feels wrong to just throw them away but EBay has a shed load and as I said I am wondering if they are now completely redundant and will never have a use again.
Hi I have lots of Sonos speakers and love them, but I am having problems with my setup in the bedroom. I have a Sonos connect amp connected to the tv audio output via phono cable. I then have 2 paired play 1s that I connect to the amp via the ap. The issue I'm have is that unless I have the setting set to 'compressed' in the advanced setting on the ap (which gives a massive sync delay with the tv image) i get dropouts in the audio constantly. I can see this has been an issue for years and I'm not sure what the solution is, or why Sonos hasn't made an update to rectify this. Many Thanks Graham
Hi I have a Samsung smart TV hung on the wall on one side of my kitchen. On the other side of the room I have AE aego M satellite speakers mounted on the wall plugged into a sonos connect. I would love to have the TV sound through my aego m speakers. I've thought of a USB powered Bluetooth transmitter and receiver to get the sound to my sonos connect input but realise that latency on Bluetooth will make this rubbish. Does anyone have any ideas how I can do this? Thanks in advance Neil
So here's the deal. I have 2 PLAY:5 (Gen 2) and have set it up in my living room in vertical orientation for listening to music, and have also connected the TV to one of the speaker using LINE-IN. The music listening is great, the TV part could do with some improvements, as all I am getting is STEREO sound. So, I will get a PLAYBASE, A SUB and 2 PLAY:1 to create the 5.1 surround system, and that will be my primary means of listening to TV. However, I also love my PLAY 5 for music, and would like to use the SUB to double up as part of the music experience. So what I would like to do is this: MUSIC Configuration: PLAY 5 + PLAY 5 + SUB TV: PLAYBASE + SUB + PLAY 1 + PLAY 1 Can I seamlessly setup the system so that the SUB automatically switches between the above configurations?

Hi, I have a Connect Amp which I am planning to connect to a couple of in-ceiling speakers and an in-ceiling subwoofer. I purchased a Cambridge Audio C200B in-ceiling subwoofer only to find that the Connect Amp only works directly with active subwoofers. I want to understand whether I should get some kind of connector, or a subwoofer amp, or possibly have a rethink. I definitely want an in-ceiling subwoofer and I have yet to find an active one and so I am not quite sure what my options are. I have limited time because my builders are soon to board up the ceiling this week. I am also a complete dunce when it comes to this kind of thing, so I need it explained in very simple terms please. Thanks!
I’ve had a pair of Kef Ci130CR speakers running from a Connect Amp for a while now. They pair up brilliantly. I’d just added a pair of Kef Ci130QR speakers to a second Connect Amp, and it’s problematic. Randomly above 50% volume, and always above 80% the amp cuts out. - The CR speakers are 8ohm with a recommended amp of 10-80W - The QR ones are 6ohm with a recommended amp of 10-50W I guess the issue is that the Connect Amp is cutting out as at higher volumes it does not have enough power to push the QR speakers. Is that accurate? Any workarounds or do I need to source a new, higher output, amp (I do have a spare Connect lying around!). Thanks. Cheers, Ferg
Since I am using the SR2 125 amplifier from Sonance to power the set of eight speakers and sub woofer, should I be using the connect hub that does not amplify the signal further? I just want to make sure that I should not be using the connect amp. Thx
Hello all, I've got 4 monitor audio ceiling speakers (6ohms) that id like to use with a connect amp, they will be in two zones in a larger room so sometimes either pair would be used and sometimes all four would be used together. Has anyone had any experience using a speaker switch/impedance matching device such as the one linked below; https://www.parts-express.com/audtek-electronics-ss4-speaker-selector-impedance-matching-1-in-4-out--300-970 If so was there any noticeable affects on the sound quality or volume when using either pair or all four speakers. Thanks in advance Jon
