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
Hi. I have a Dual CS 505-2 turntable connected to a Sansui 771 receiver that I would like to connect to my Sonos Connect:AMP and two Play:1s. I also want to connect the amp to my regular speakers and subwoofer. Do I need any additional equipment? How do I set it up? Thanks.
Hey community, I am unable to connect my Sonos 3 to my university network by any means. I understand a setup with username + password is not possible (which is horrible imho). So, I got my Sonos Mac-address verified for ethernet connection --> does not work. The only option is directly connecting my Sonos to my Mac via ethernet, which is not a longterm option, as Spotify is not available via this option (although my Mac has a running internet connection). Anyone knows a Workaround to connect my Spotify to my Sonos (even if it includes an ethernet cable... any idea is more than welcome)? Cheers, Hendrik
I'm looking to add a Sonos connect amp with outdoor speakers to my system. When I group rooms and if I accidentally group my outdoor speakers I don't want them to play unless I push on a toggle switch that I am going to play outside. Can someone recommend an outdoor switch that I could use that would be okay in the snow? Or is this even possible? I would prefer not to unplug the connect amp Everytime I'm done using it. Thanks in advance
I saw a video on connecting the Connect to a record player, receiver and speakers. The system was connected like this: Record player > preamp > Connect > AV receiver > speakers In that way he was able to broadcast the sound to sonar speakers in other rooms and also broadcast Spotify etc. to the receivers speakers. My question is. Is the sound that goes through the Connect analog or does it get digitalized? I would like to keep the analog vinyl sound from the old system. In the video it sounded like it wasn't a compromise, but I wanted to be sure. Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DE8r6z0-t8Y
I have 4 Yamaha NS-IW360C ceiling speakers with an impedance of 6 ohms each. [img]c600ba7b-a9a7-4588-96ea-a4cfd8356d7e.png[/img] How can I connect them to the SONOS Connect AMP to have two stereo zones? (Example: kitchen and dining room) No need to activate or deactivate any of the zones, they can always sound at the same time. Should I use a speaker selector? Do you recommend any? I also have a Yamaha YST-FSW150BL Advanced YST II Down-Firing Active Subwoofer, can I use this subwoofer with the SONOS Connect AMP? Thank you very much for your help.
I am planning to buy a Sonos:Amp + speakers for my dining room. My local dealer is selling the amp bundled with speakers with app 40% off the amp. That means that I can overspend a little on the speakers if I stick with Dali og B&W speakers. The speakers will be wall-mounted in a room roughly 3,5 x 5 meters. I have narrowed it down to the Dali Zensor 1 (often paired with Sonos:Amp here in Norway) and the B&W 686 s2. Checked out the Zensor 3´s as well, but they seem to deep to be wall-mounted. The B&W´s are front-ported which should be an advantage when wall-mounting them. Both sounded good in the shop but I am leaning towards the B&W. Does anyone have any experience in matching Sonos:Amp with b&w speakers? The 686´s has a much lower sensitivity-rating than the Dalis, is that a problem? Any other thoughts? PS: This is going to be a second system, I have a pair of Xeo 4´s and a connect in the living room.
Hello Sonos experts, I'm considering doing up my house with Songs, but why don't the SONOS Connect and Connect Amps have Optical Audio inputs? Why only outdated RCA Analog? I have a computer I'd like to connect to play my iTunes music from but need an optical audio input to make this happen - what am I missing here? Thanks...
My wife is opening a fitness studio. I will be setting up the sound system. I will be using 1 Sonos Connect and 2 Bose Cinemate ll units in the studio. 24 sound dampening panels. I have this set up at home, it sounds great. My question is, how can I add a wireless mic that she can talk through the system along with the music. It would be nice to be able to adjust the volume independent from the music. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi All, I have major issues with a pair of play 5 gen 1 speakers. I did a factory reset and did the wireless installation of the pair... so far so good. After the reinstallation the right speaker has a solid green mute button which is impossible to get rid of. When i try to play radio there is no sound. When pressing the mute button only the right player plays music. After that touching any button on either player or even adjusting the volume in the app mutes/pauzes the radio on the right speaker. Left never makes a sound so far... Any suggestions on how to fix this? Router is an ASUS 87-U I have an unused bridge
I've currently got three play:1s and a playbar and am looking to round out my Sonos system. I have two things that I would like to do and am wondering if I can get it done with a single connect amp. I want to get a set of Bose outdoor speakers for my patio, I would be putting the connect amp in my living room and running speaker wire ourside. Then I would like to hook a turntable up to the same connect amp and be able to play that through any and all of my speakers. Turntable would be in the same room as the connect amp. In my head this seems like it should work, but just want confirmation because running speaker wire from living room to outdoor patio is going to be a little of a pain. If it won't work the way I want, I'll place the connect amp closer to the patio and put off on turntable integration.
What is the best way to hook up my outdoor speakers to my existing Sonos network? I have a Sonos Connect in my living room for my home theater and 2 Play1's throughout the house...Is there an AB selector that I can get to install between the Connect & my outdoor speakers / home theater? I was thinking I could use this to separate the signal or have both "zones" play at the same time. Then I would buy a cheapo amp to power the outdoor speakers. Any help would be great!
Hi, A few things that i really would like Sonos to implement and develop: 1. Possibility to create a room using more than 2(+sub) speakers. I have a "man cave" with 6 play1 speakers and a sub, they're currently set up as 3 diffrent rooms. 2. Lists for grouping rooms, instead of grouping rooms every time I would like to be able to choose from a list with pre-made groups like "whole house", "top floor", "bottom floor" etc. 3. In wall/roof speakers 4. Multi-channel Connect:amp, more than 2 speakers. Perfect for large houses. 5. Outdoor speakers
I'm in the market for a 5.1 surround system. I'm looking into the sonos 5.1 surround playbar with play 3s, but I'm reading about the Dolby digital problems for true surround sound. I would to have my laptop and PS4 to the tv via hdmi and from my tv to sound bar via optical. Only problem is my tv is a Vizio m60-c3 and it only output Dolby digital plus (correct me if I'm wrong). Is there any way to convert dd+ to dd ? Maybe an A/V receiver ? Cnet - m60-c3 outputs Dolby digital plus But I read in the manual for m60-c3 that it has dts and Dolby digital. (Not dd+)
Hey guys. Just like the title states, I understand there is lip sync issues when streaming media and sonos is a "go to" kind of system. With that said, can I connect my laptop to tv via hdmi and from tv to sonos surround playbar via optical ?? Will I get true surround sound ? Thanks!
I realize Connect is probably a bit oldschool since most younger people might not own traditional stereosystem but I personally believe it's time for an updated version of the Connect anyhow. I've used Sonos for two years using two Play:1 and three Connect ZP90 and since there's quite a lot of wifi traffic around (kids in the house wathing Youtube, playing online games e.t.c.) and my experience is that the Play:1 are much more resistant to busy wifi traffic than the older ZP90 which from occasionally fall out or have drop outs. So I'm sure there's rome for improvement here. Featurewise I'd like a headphone output on the front and I would like some kind of "extra buffer" option where the risk of dropouts are reduced on the expense of responsiveness being a bit slower. Any one else who feel it's time for an updated version of Connect?
Hi. I have recently bought a play:5 and love it so much I want to connect it up to the rest of my system. I have a Linn Sondek LP12 turntable that is connected to a Quad 44 pre amp and a Quad 405 power amp, this powers a pair of Polk RTi8's in main lounge and Klipsch AW 525's outside (the play:5 is in an upstairs lounge). Also a lot of my music is on a HDD connected into my router. What I would like to know is could I connect the Connect between the pre and power amps thereby allowing me to stream from the turntable and TV etc through the amps to the Play:5 upstairs (and the Polk and Klipsch speakers downstairs)? Also would this also let me stream the network music through everything? Cheers Wayne
Hi, I'm new here. I have a question about the Sonos Connect that I hope someone can help with please. Will the Line In analogue source be digitally converted, then reconverted to analogue at the Line Out? Or is it a straight analogue pass through from Line In to Line Out, if the Line In Source has been selected? Thanks!
