So about a year ago I bought into sonos with a play1 in the kitchen. Great speaker, play Spotify and all good. Then came Alexa dot into the kitchen, excellent device and the way ahead, can play Spotify, radio etc all with a simple command. Sound is pretty crap though. Can't connect dot to sonos as latter has no connectivity options. So I have an excellent music interface (Alexa dot) and an excellent speaker (play1) but they don't connect. Alexa voice is the way I'm going for ease of use. I could buy an echo for bit better sound quality, or wait for next round of products. But what do I do with what's becoming a redundant play 1? It's like having a smartphone with no touch screen.
hey everyone, I am designing a wall from my TV, this wall will have a fireplace below the TV, the goal for the wall is simplicity. Ideally, I'd like to just have the fireplace recessed into the wall, and the TV above it. That being said, what are the issues or drawbacks to positioning the PlayBar on top of a cabinet that is directly to the right of the TV? from the right edge of the TV to the start of the cabinet will is about 6-8 inches.
I currently have a few Sonos speakers throughout the house (PLAY1, PLAY3, PLAY5) and really enjoy them. I have an older 7.1 Surround Sound Home Theater system that works just fine for our needs, so I don't want to completely replace it yet, but I would like to add SONOS capabilities to it and pair it to our other speakers when we would like. I've included a link below to the system we have. If I understand correctly, would simply purchasing the SONOS:CONNECT Receiver be what we need to accomplish our goal here? The existing system has a receiver, so my understanding is that I would not need the SONOS:CONNECT AMP for this purpose. Just wanted to make sure! https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electronics-HT-D6730W-Theater-Version/dp/B004OCN6ZG Thanks in advance!
I have a REL Strata 3 subwoofer which is self powered and can accept both high level and low level inputs. Is it possible to use the low level outputs of a Connect to power the sub or must I go with a Connect Amp and use the high level outputs? Anyone have experience with this? Thanks for any advice and I apologize if this has been asked and answered previously...
Hi I have turntables & a Traktor z2 mixer plugged in (with phono cables) to a Sonos connect, playing wireless from 2x grouped play1 speakers. I'm experiencing a lot of delay between the music I can hear directly through my mixer (with headphones attached) and the music that plays through songs speakers; causing beat matching issues etc. Is there anything I can do to improve this? I ran a diagnostic & the number is 5248173. Thanks, Alex
Hello friends. I have an old Sansui G-4500 Pure power Stereo Receiver (connected) to a Dual turntable and an AKAI cassette deck) and I am considering replacing the speakers with Sonos equipment. I believe I need CONNECT with my set-up, not CONNECT AMP. My speaker wires are older school, i.e. naked ends both sides. And the Sansui has a set-up to receive naked wire ends at the back. What do I do? Do I get speaker wire with RCA in one end, and naked wire ends at the other? Do they exist? I appreciate your input and i hope I am clear in my question.
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 pair of Bose 251s out in the backyard. I just purchased the Sonos Connect:Amp. After the fact, I noticed that the Boase 251s are rated 6 ohms and the Connect:Amp is rated 8 ohms. I'm not too familiar with the ohms issue, but know enough that I risk burning out the amp. Can the Connect:Amp safely power the Bose 251s?
I'm just about to take the Sonus plunge. I have two different receivers in the house: A pioneer sc-65 with surround sound set-up and and a Denon AVR-2808 with a couple bookshelf Bose speakers. I'd like to utilize the existing speakers attached to both receivers. Is that possible? Would I just attach a Connect to reach of the two receivers? Would the music stay in sync? I also have a separate pair of Klipsch speakers sitting around....could those attach as well with a Connect-AMP? I'm just not sure if I'm limited to one connect or if multiple connects can work and stay in sync. thanks for the help!
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 there, I have a new Samsung TV which only has an optical audio port (not the old fashioned headphone socket). I have a Sonos Conect:amp, connected to speakers, which I want to connect to the TV so I can play TV sound over the speakers. I bought an optical audio cable and an analogue to digital audio converter. I've wired it all up as follows: 1. TV to converter using optical audio cable 2. Converter to Connect:amp using the two-socket (red and white) analogue cable. But when I turn the TV onto the optical audio output mode - and check on my Sonos app that line in is playing - I still can't get sound! Any idea what's going on? Any help greatly appreciated! Thanks
