I've just purchase a ZP120 and don't know which voltage setting to select. I live in the US (Washington). The label under the power connector reads 100-120V-/220-240V but the voltage select switch has 115 or 230 selections. Having seen several posts where the wrong choice was made and their unit was fried I want to make the correct choice for where I live. Thanks.
Hi, I have a number of Sonos speakers in my house and a Sonos connect. When firmware 6.4.2 came out, the app asked if I wanted to update to the latest firmware to which I said yes. My problem is that my Playbar and my Connect unit are showing as firmware 6.4 and not 6.4.2. How do I update the Playbar and connect to 6.4.2? I've attached a screenshot of the version of each firmware as found in the "About My Sonos System" in the app. If I go into the App and choose "Online Updates"", it tells me my Sonos system is up to date. Any help anyone can provide is most appreciated. Thanks, Dave
Not entirely sure how to articulate this, so here's my situation: I currently have 4 play 1s and a playbar. I just moved so I'm not entirely sure what rooms the play 1s will end up in, though I suppose that might not matter. I have a receiver + turntable + two non-sonos speakers that I'd like to incorporate into my sonos setup. Originally I was planning to buy a Connect, hook it up in between my turntable (technics 1200) and my receiver, and then be able to stream LPs to my sonos speakers. I'm assuming that setup won't allow me to stream anything but phono from that receiver to my sonos though. Instead, is it possible to somehow set it up so that whatever audio the receiver is putting out (phono/aux/am/fm) is streamed, rather than relegating the Connect to just one input (phono)? The idea would be to ideally somehow use my existing turntable+receiver+bookshelf speakers as a standalone system that could also stream audio to other rooms, thereby allowing me to save a couple play 1
Hi community, I need some Sonos wisdom please. I have a bunch of Play 1s across the house and a Connect hooked up to my surround system in the living room. I have a man cave with two Play 1s and a Sony Bravia Smart TV (Android). I just connected the Sonos Connect via optical cable to the telly as I thought I can stream the TV sound through the two Play 1s but shizzle, seems that's not going to work, any tips or tricks? PS: not keen to get a Play 5 or Soundbar which have physical line ins Thanks for your support in advance!
I have recently installed a BT youview boxi have plugged the optical straight into the back of the box whack woks fine,the problem I now have no sound when I turn my Xbox on which is connected via hdmi into the back of the tv...would I need to get an optical splitter to solve the problem???
Hi, I've just moved house and bought a new play 5 for the back room, which won't connect. The problem is I've really bad reception there, and will need an access point for broadband. At present in the room where the router is I have the bridge into the router, then a connect into a hi-fi: a play 1 in a bedroom ( with patchy connection), and the play 5 at the back of the house. My question is, is it possible to put the Sonos connect straight into a router port, then extend another spare port ( I have Ethernet cabling to the back room) and use the bridge at the back of the house? Therefore having it close to the play5? Is this likely to do away with the bad reception problems?? (there is no room to put the play5 directly beside the Ethernet outlet. Also is it true I could then use the Ethernet switch on the bridge to say connect up to a tv or similar?? I'm not sure if all that made sense but any info appreciated. John
I have two pairs of speakers installed in the ceiling in my kitchen. I would like to know whether these can be powered by a single Connect:Amp. The speakers are rated as 6 ohms. I would be grateful for any advice or guidance as I am looking to increase my Sonos set up as soon as possible!
I've successfully set up my new Sonos playbar with my Android (Samsung Phone). My partner also wants to use the playbar but when I tried to re-run the Sonos app on the second phone it wasn't set up successfully. Does anyone know how to set up 2 phones to use the same Sonos device? Thanks in advance for any assistance.
Hi, I have recently moved to a college where there is one wifi network for everyone to use. A couple of people have added their Sonos to this network already, which means that I can't add my Spotify account to the network. It is quite annoying that the others are able to control my Sonos, and I am able to control theirs, since I sometimes accidentally select the wrong one, and they do the same. How do I get my Sonos on its own network/channel so that only I can control my Sonos, and my Spotify account can be added to the network? Thank you!
I have a subwoofer and a pair of Play 3s in my living room for music. Today I added a Playbar and an additional pair of Play 3s for surround to support my TV. How can I configure my system so I can choose between the 2 front Play 3's + Sub OR the Playbar+Sub+Surround (no Play 3s). How can I set up the system to support these 2 configurations with the single sub? Thanks.
I have just moved into a house which has a system fitted. We have 6 zones with built in celling speakers in each room, there are two connect:amps in one place and a connect in the living room. Along with three sonos controllers around the house. I can't get the living room zone to play, unplugging the connect removes the zone from the list I can send music to the zone but no output. I can also send different music at different volumes to all the other zones but still get no output in the living room Any ideas??
I know this question has been asked but just to check. I have a play 1 which I set up through wifi. Didn't have any cables in the box. I now want to take the speaker to another house fir the day then come back home and use as norm. I have created playlists through Spotify. Do I just set up with wifi there when I get there? Thanks
I have a Sonos Connect-Amp but seem to need more power and am planning to switch to a Connect with a separate amp. I also use a speaker selector box with built-in volume control. I currently have six zones and am going to expand to eight. I'd like to get a good amp that won't break the bank but will give me 100 watts/channel or more. Seems that I need to double the power of the Connect-Amp or it's not worth the trouble. One other requirement is that the amp must be auto-sensing -- it has to turn on/off with the Sonos. I've done some searching and found some old threads but am curious as to what others are using now.
I have an open plan apartment where the living room and kitchen are semi connected. In the kitchen I have a play 5 and ind the living room I have a playbar and a sub. The living room is hooked up to the TV. I often play music grouped but it would be awesome if I could have stereo with the kitchen as on side and the living room as the other. Is that possible?
Hi My son is about to start university and will have access to the college internet through an ethernet port. I have read previous threads on access in such situations but wonder if this specifically should work : BTHomeHub5 - disabled WIFI both frequencies; ethernet wired to access point. Play 1 and laptop ethernet wired to BTHH5. Will laptop be able to control Play1? Alternatively, if Play1 ethernet wired to access point, can laptop or android phone connected to WiFi control the unit? John
