I have three connects for different zones in my home. In the bedroom I use a play bar connected to my TV and Sub. In the kitchen I use a connect and have the TV audio into the line in... I can switch between TV and music sources from the app control but I cannot get the Auto Play to work when TV is turned on to auto play the TV audio and switch from my music source. Any ideas what I cannot get this to save and work? Am I missing something it works in my bedroom?
Hello everyone I hope some kind soul can advise me on what to do with this... Today I noticed one of my CONNECT boxes (in a bedroom) had disappeared from the app. It seems to reappear after a reboot and sometimes can play music, but then drops off again. I've tried everything I can think of (details as follows), but nothing has helped. 1/ I initially tried to go through the process to add a new box, by doing the thing on the app and pressing the two buttons on the CONNECT at once at the appropriate moment, but the light on the box stayed white and nothing happened. 2/ I turned it off and on again, and went through the process to connect a new box which seemed to work. All seemed ok and it was up and running apparently ok. And then 5 or 10 minutes later I noticed it had vanished again. 3/ I switched it over with one of my other CONNECT units (so that the troublesome box is now in the lounge). Although I could see the problem box on the network, it wouldn't play musi
We all love the sound quality of the Sonos products. However when the kids go to bed it could be great to group the audio from my Sonos Playbar to my Bluetooth headphones to watch a movie at the volume I would like. This could be done with an app update to expand grouping to include the iPhone or whatever device being used with the Sonos app and connect the headphones to the phone. Essentially using the phones Bluetooth to connect to the Sonos network via the Sonos app. I’m sure a more simplified was of doing the same thing could be done through the app with user friendly options/selections that could be created. As an accessibility feature this could allow those with hearing loss to wear Bluetooth headphones and watch at their own volume while the others in the room can use the Sonos Playbar.
I found a person in my area selling a used Sonos Sub. He says it was purchased a month ago and it looks new from the outside. However, he no longer has the receipt. Will I still be covered by warranty if I buy this from him? I have a playbar already and been looking for a cost effective way to get my hands on a Sonos Sub.
I cant seem to find the details of the Sonos Connect Amp crossover anywhere. What I do know is that when an RCA wire is connected to the Sub out on the Connect Amp an 80Hz high pass filter is applied to the speaker outputs. 1) Is the subwoofer out low lass filtered at 80Hz? - I think yes 2) what is the order of the high pass and low pass filters? 3) What type of filter? is it a Linkwitz-Riley? The reason that I'm asking this is I was to know about the relative phase of the speaker outs and subwoofer output at 80Hz. My usually quick method for dialing in a subwoofer is to reverse the speaker cable polarity and use the sub phase and level control to find a null at 80Hz then swap back the speaker cable polarity. Thanks Wayne
Hi. I have a recurring problem with my connect amp. The white light is always intermittent and does not connect to the sonos controller. I got a pair of Polk Audio speakers that I want to connect to the Amp to improve my Sonos sound. Please help! (confirmation number 1039371935)
I have a connect amp, and am trying to run my digital audio from my stereo into my connect amp via the analog audio inputs. I have a D>A converter, and when I select line in for the sonos, the audio is extremely quiet and cannot be increased. It sounds like there is something which I have not activated, that is holding back the sound. Any ideas? Thanks, Jeremy
I've two new components I'd like to request. I would like a travel version for hotel rooms. Features would include Bluetooth connection to phone for playing from phone library. Also, connect to hotel WiFi for streaming services (Pandora, SiriusXM). Integrated locked down firewall that limits who can access it. The second product is an ruggedized outdoor version. I'd love to have a self-contained unit for my patio. Something that can take some weather (sun/rain), but would normally live in the garage, or kitchen area.
Hello, I recently purchased a record player (with built in amp) and a sonos connect so that I could play vinyl through my sonos set up. That works like a charm, but I’d like to boost the sound in a room that doesn’t have a sonos speaker (yet) and I wondered if I could hook up an amp to the current set up so that music plays through both the sonos speakers and the standalone amp/speaker set up simultaneously? I’ve played around a bit, but had no luck getting sound to both sonos and the standalone speakers. Anyone able to help? Thanks in advance.
I'm getting a new amplifier (https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/heaven11audio/the-billie-amp-stereo-strikes-back) soon for my listening space, and I'll be feeding it from a new Connect. However, as the amp also has Bluetooth, and will have a turntable attached, I'm considering taking the pre-outs from the amp into the inputs on the Connect, so I can listen to the turntable or the Bluetooth sources in other zones. My concern is if I (or someone else) accidentally chooses line-in on the Connect [i]and [/i]the amp is set to the Connect as the source, I'll have a circular signal path, creating a potential for feedback. The path will be optical out from the Connect, into the amps DAC, through the tube preamp stage, back out the preamp outs to the Connect's analog inputs. Is there anything in the Connect's signal path that detects feedback loops and cuts them off to protect equipment?
HI, I'm trying to integrate my vinyl and Sonos systems, which I've been using separately to this point. Vinyl-wise, I have Project Debut III turntable, and Yamaha RX-V863AV Receiver connected to two Energy tower speakers and a Paradigm subwoofer; when streaming, I've been using a Sonos 5 and Sonos 1's. I just was gifted a Sonos connect:amp (I realize the Connect may have been optimal) and have been trying to figure out how the best way to play vinyl, but without any success. I've now taken the Receiver out of the equation and tried to run the turntable straight into the connect:amp, and have attached both speakers and subwoofer to the connect:amp as well, but they only sound I get is quiet, tinny music directly form the turntable. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
I just bought 5 speakers and a subwoofer from someone, a pair of Bose 301 IV, a pair of Bose 141, a Bose VCS-10 sound bar, sony sa-wm40. I also have a Sonos Connect:AMP, I want to connect all of these up to the amp and then to a TV. Am I able to connect 3 speakers to one terminal (One 301, one 141, and the sound bar). From what I have read it sounds like I should always have an equal number of speakers on each terminal but I was not sure if I was reading this correctly. If I am unable to connect all of these to the Connect:AMP how would you recommend I set them up. PS: The 141 speakers do not have to be in the system, I am just adding them in because I have them, if removing them allows me to still have the 301 and the sound bar connected then I got no problem with that. And before I get the barrage of people hating on Bose I am fully aware of their flaws for the sticker price, but to be fair I did get all of these things for close to nothing so comparing the speaker system I got
I would like to request that you guys add support for two more speakers in the "5.1" surround sound setup. As big as the PlayBase is, it's still effectively doing mono output. I would like to be able to spread the frontal stereo image wider with a couple of satellite Ones/Play:1s speakers becoming the left and right channels while the PlayBase becomes the center channel. Also, you should take this a step further and integrate 2 more satellites for a 7.1 system with two speakers on either side of the listener sweet spot. P.S. Please add DTS support.
