This is a really-really dumb question, but how on Earth do I switch-off line-in on my Play 5? I've connected an AirPort Express, got to room settings and used OK. But I can't find how to switch-off line-in and go back to using Sonos connectivity. When I go to room settings all I see is Line-in option and when I tap that I just get line-in options....no OFF setting!!! Using Sonos 7.2 on iPhone. Your help appreciated.
I have one Connect:Amp and two Play:1. The home theater is wired into the Connect:Amp through RCA line-in. The outdoor speakers are wired out through the speaker connections. The Connect:Amp and the outdoor speakers will play all music sources [b][u]except[/u][/b] line-in. The Play:1 speakers with play all music sources [b][u]including[/u][/b] Connect:amp line-in. Obviously line-in works, because I can get sound from it through the Play:1 speakers. Why can't I get the Connect:Amp speakers to play the Connect:Amp line-in. They play other sources.
Hi community! Here is my question/situation. I have a problem with zoneplayer ZP90, after connecting the equipment to the current socket start to LED blinking (white), and the ports of ethernet do the same, the LEDs blinking (orange and green), this situation continue for a long time and never stops.
Just wanted to say how impressed I am with sonos after sales support. It is second to none. I split the shroud on my play 5 power cord where it plugs into the back of the speaker. I chatted with the online tech support, simply to ask where I could get one in Australia. My address was asked, and a replacement. Cable was sent, no questions asked and completely free of charge. So impressed. Love my sonos system!!
Existing Setup is Sub + 2 x Play1's in "Living Room". Just added Connect Amp. When Connecting the Connect AMP in the software, the Room Selection DropDown List does not show "Living Room" as one of the options. There is "Living Room 2". Why is "Living Room" not an option for the room Selection for my new Connect Amp.? It is the Room where my existing speakers are assigned. I want to play two Mission Speakers through the Connect AMP to enrich the sound of the 2 Play 1's and my SUB in the Living Room. I'm a programmer and I can't believe that the Sonos software can't handle this properly. This is not an unusual situation and the Software ought to be robust enough to handle this situation.
Ive had this issue for a long time. cant find any solutions. Often I operate my playbar for the TV at higher volumes. when the TV is not in use, I add the playbar to the living room set. When I add the playbar to the living room it comes on blasting, and i have to scramble to bring the volume down. Would be nice if there was a setting to "equalize volume" when adding so that the component added is set at the average level of the other rooms. Thanks!
I'm considering getting a Sonos setup, but already have some nice wired speakers I want to keep in one of the rooms. My questions is, can I connect these to the Connect:Amp along with some Play 1 speakers and have them all play together? I'm worried there could be some delay between the wired speakers and the wireless speakers.
I have connected my new Player 1 three times - which means I've reset to factory settings twice. I've called this device "portable," as I want to be able to move it from room to room. But each time I disconnect it, the player is no longer found in the system. White light blinks forever. What am I doing wrong? My Player 3 stays connected just fine.
I am using this AMP: http://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/6-zone-multi-channel-amp-osd-mx1260.html ( OSD Audio MX1260 12 Channel, Six Stereo Zones, 60 Watt Peak per Channel, or Bridged Mono 80 Watts per Zone/Channel ) With 10 Connects, Should I use an Ethernet Switch and hardwire all the Connects? I currently am using only 1 Connect so it's wireless but I am worried about saturating the wireless network and there is ethernet where the amp and Connects are, but is it worth the aggravation to hardwire all 10? Also, how should I use Coax or RCA or does it matter? My sources are 100% streaming sources. The Amp drives about 24 speakers in my ceiling speakers in my house and works perfectly but I need more independent zones, etc. Thanks!
My setup is 4 speakers connected into an amp with a sonos connect, turntable plugged into amp. Plus a Sonos Amp with 2 other speakers connected to this All speakers in one room So I can group them and have all 6 playing when I am streaming music, but when i play a record it will only play out of the 4 connected to the amp Anyone know a way round this?
Morning all, derivative of a question asked many times (also by me) but with new scenario this time. Have a Connect Amp (actually a new one in this location) to work alongside a Sonos Sub & two pairs of B&W ceiling speakers. Originally installed 2 x B&W CCM616's but now fitted extra pair of B&W CCM663's & with a view to downgrading the CCM616's to bedroom duty and adding a second set of CCM663's in the kitchen. They sound great but of course the CCM663's overshadow the CCM616's, hence the adjustments. Just to clarify, it means I have 2 616's & 2 663's working right now with the Kitchen Sonos. But the Connect Amp cuts out when worked hard. Installed the new speakers December & unusually they not been used so much as normal....daily yes but not worked hard. A Biffy Clyro, and Gang of Four session yesterday showed the Connect Amp to cut out when driven hard. All other rooms & Sonos boxes worked as normal. I think I'm over working the Sonos box but is opinion not deduction
I am new to Sonos, I have purchased the 'Boost" and 5.1 system for my main audio video area, and plan on adding a Play 3 and Play 5 to other rooms, as well as a "Connect" at my turntable. Currently I have no drywall up so running wires are easy. I know the Soundbar needs to be connected to the tv & network. My question is should I hard wire the play 1's to the network switch with the Playbar, or do a separate small switch only for the playbar, and plays 1's, and future "Connect", that hooks up directly to the Boost that is connected directly to the router? I know not all speakers need to be hardwired, I just figured since its really no effort at the moment it would not be a bad idea. BTW I am not planning on wiring the sub woofer.
Hello I'm hoping someone can help me out. I have four ZP120s that I have used for several years. Previously these have always been connected to ceiling speakers, but we have recently moved and ceiling speakers are not an option. Therefore I hoped to connect the ZP120 to a Samsung soundbar to play Sonos through the soundbar. I'm not bothered about playing the tv sound into the Sonos setup. I'd be really delighted if someone could clarify if that is possible and how to do it. Also if that's not possible I would love some recommendations for general speakers that I could connect to my ZP120s. Thanks for reading and hopefully you can help.
Hi- I have seven zones - 2 x play:3, 2 x play:1 paired, 2xZP80, 2xZP100. Recently one of the PLAY:3's seems to have died. It disappeared from my controller apps, and when I looked the LED was off. Tried to unplug for a couple minutes, replug in. LED blinked white for a quarter second, then went dark. Same thing happens every time I try to change power. Cant find it on map of MAC addresses, and can't add it. When I try to hold down play/vol up to get it to chime and add to system, no luck - just sits there. What else can I do, or should I trigger a return/repair? I've only had for a few months (vs. rest of kit which I've had for years). Thanks, John
I have a ZP90 bought in 2009.The main reason (initially) was it gave bit perfect sound and I found it is easily better than CD provided you rip with EAC. I now want a second one. However, looking on here for the first time in a while it seems the Connect isn't bit perfect. Seems strange, but it appears my old ZP90 is better than the current Connect. My question is this: If I buy a second hand ZP90 is it guaranteed to be bit perfect?
I have a Play 5 connected by Ethernet to Virgin Media Hub 3 and 2 play 1s connected wirelessly as a stereo pair. They are all used in the one room. I have constant audio drop outs on all devices or the Play 5 will just completely stop and disappear from the app. The play 1s also disappear from the app. I use my iPod IOS 9.3 and Sonos 7.2. Sometimes it will work for about an hour with no problems, other times for a few minutes. I have tried changing the channels on Sonos and the router but it makes no difference. Constant drop outs whilst also using line in and sending the audio uncompressed to the Play 1s. Would a Sonos bridge help with this problem? Diagnostic number 7130228 Thanks
