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
Hi guys. We have 2 Sonos products. A playbase and a sonos One. Its working superbly!. Though, I would like to have my Apple Music library added to our Time Capsule to have the music stored one place, but I can't seem to get it to work. Its because im not doing it right, im sure of - but I've tried a lot of different things now - and nothing seems to helping me getting this to work. I can't seem to get the library on the Apple Music appleID to sync with time capsule. Any one of you guys knows how to proceed?
All is well except that the speed of the turntable is "inconsistent." The Sonos system worked great and the setup of the Pro-Ject seemed to go without a hitch. However when I play the album, the speed is CLOSE to where it should be but flucuates from perfect to modestly slow to perfect again to modestly slow, etc........ Any turntable / Pro-Ject experts willing to give a Sonos nerd a hand?
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
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
Hi Guys, Long time Sonos user, but this one just has me stumped. I have purchased a Linn Amplifier which has my Turntable (Michel Engineering Gyro) connected to it and works brilliantly. I have now purchased a SONOS Connect as want to share the turntable around the house etc. BUT!!!!! I will be damned if I can get it set up. The problem being that we just cannot hear the vinyl when its playing. If we take the Sonos out of the Loop then it all works perfectly again. So - I have the turntable RCA going to the Line in on the Connect, the output RCA from the Connect goes to the Phono Source input on the Linn Amp? Thats right yes? I am working if the Connect is faulty, but wanted to ensure I was not missing something really obvious here? Answers/help on the back of a postcard would be appreciated. Thanks - Rich
Intermittent interference / white noise with Connect:Amp line in from TV (using DAC to analogue converter)
I have a Panasonic TV connected to the line in of my Connect:Amp via an optical cable and digital to analogue converter. Usually it works absolutely perfectly with no appreciable delay. However, on every (UK freeview) TV channel there are certain programmes that just output interference, which is annoyingly loud compared to the normal volume. I haven't been able to determine a pattern, other than it seems to (mostly) happen with films and certain imported programmes rather than original channel content and more often on channel 4 than BBC (although it does still happen on these channels as well). All I can do is either change channel or switch the amp off and revert to the TV speakers. Has anyone experienced this and / or is anyone aware of this problem? I'm assuming it's to do with the sound output from the TV, but don't know why it would be different with different types of programme. I doubt that there's a solution but grateful for any input / explanation.
(I had posted this in the wrong area, sorry for the double post) I noticed that my office zp90 wasn't in my zone list. I updated all of the units last week, not sure if that is when it started. No light on the front, both ethernet ports fast-blinking both amber and green. Unplugged it for thirty seconds, and when I replugged it they started blinking fast again, right away. Still no front LED. Unplugged for thirty seconds again, held down the mute button and replugged it in. Still no signs of life on the front, and the ethernet ports still fast blinking. Is there anything that I can do here, or is it simply toast? Thanks...
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?
Connect: When will Sonos deliver Connect with both In and Out on the optical connector? I was disappointed when trying to connect the TV, and realized that Connect only support output and not input. Don’t tell I should use Playbar as that is not interesting in this case. SONOS, is there a plan to improve the Connect product on this?
I got the Sonos Connect and this record player: https://www.amazon.com/Crosley-C100A-SI-Turntable-Adjustable-Counterweight/dp/B016OVYIK6 I have it all hooked up and set with line out (pre amp), but while I can hear a little sound from the record player, no audio is going into the Sonos connect. What am I doing wrong?
