Hi - I am setting up an new Sonos AMP to 4 speakers. First 2 speakers: excellent sound.Third speaker: still excellent sound.Fourth speaker: I experienced a severe loss of quality of one of the channels and thus speakers. Monaco SPE-82/HQ 100 watt 8 Ohm speakers.2 speakers on 1 channel thus 4 on 2 channels. Any explanation? Ideally anybody a fix?
I have a Sonos Amp and I’m running S2. Right now I have two sets of wired speakers attached to the amp, but I cannot control them separately. What’s the least expensive way to do that? If I have to by another amp just for one set of the speakers, can I buy a used one and see them in the same app
I’m fully-committed to Sonos and very happy with the products for the most part. One thing that’s driving me nuts is how little sound comes out of the ceiling speakers when playing music. I have Sonos brand ceiling speakers, AMP, Arc, Sub in my living room and when I play music, I can’t hear anything coming from the ceiling speakers. If I unpaid them, the sound is great. They’re in Full Mode and cranked up to 15 in settings. any suggestions?
I have four Play 1s, working in stereo, in 2 rooms. I also have 80s vintage Onlyo TX-840 amp that powers a phono, a CD player, and two sets of hard wired speakers in 2 different rooms. I got a Port and have lined it into the Onkyo, and can now get Sonos content in all 4 rooms. But how do I line the stereo into the Port so I can listen to records and CDs in all four rooms? I get that I could line either the CD player or the phono into the port, but how do I do both? Do I need to get a splitter or something and run cables from the CD and Phono, to the splitter, to the Port and then into the Onkyo amp?
I have a Sonos Zp90 player that has worked fine until recently with external speakers (Audioengine). Nothing new changed. It just plays intermittently, and is so incredibly annoying. Anyone else experiencing it? I think if I ask Sonos they’re just going to try to get me to upgrade to a better system. I like my speakers just fine and I’d like to hang on to them. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks in advance!
I used my 30% S1 discount for a Sonos Port and used a gen 1 Play 5. Decided to return the Port, and did so. Problem is, now my Sonos system shows the Port as “offline” and the Play 5 status as “Upgraded”. Do you lose the discount after a return? I would like to get a Amp, but missing out on the discount makes it a tough s ell
Sonos offers some great architectural speakers.Sonos should also offer a wall-mounting 'Amp Lite' that can drive a pair of architectural speakers.The 'Amp Lite' would be functionally similar to the current Amp, but would have less power output (to suit smaller rooms) and a lower price-point. Does anyone else want one?
Hello,Does anyone have any insight on the possibility of connecting 2 Sonos connect to 1 receiver? I want to be able to control the volume in different areas while steaming the same music. Just trying to save some $$$. I realize the alternative is to buy the new Sonos amp or another receiver but trying to make use of the connects I have. Thank you for your time.
Hi - really hoping to get some help with setting up a Port as I’ve hit a brick wall…I have an existing ‘Home Theatre’ setup that includes an Arc and 2 x One SL’s acting as rears - more than happy with this as sound quality is great and the wife can cope with the small footprint!A few months ago I decided to finally pursue a long held passion for vinyl so following some research purchased a Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB and a Port - expensive option but I don’t really have the space for a Five and thought the Port would keep things tidy.I had assumed that I would be able to configure the Port to play the audio from the turntable (through the same two One SL’s) but for the life of me I cannot, despite many attempts and lots of internet research, workout how to connect the One SL’s to the Port. I’ve been able to get the Port setup okay and it appears under Products in the app but I cannot see any option to associate it with the One SL’s.Am I missing something obvious here or have I made an expensi
If i hook up the port to my reciever and wired system will i also be able to use the arc and the sub to play music? Essentially I’d like all speakers to fire as I stream to the port. Two front wired and two back wired along with ARC and Sub. Can that be done?
Hello friends,I’ve been thinking about reworking our living room setup a bit. I would like to get a Beam for our TV and then place two Play Ones/SL/Ikea speakers as surround sound. Right now, I have a Sonos Connect: Amp hooked up to some tall Polk speakers. Is it possible to create a dummy load for the Connect:Amp so that I can stream the audio to the surround setup and not burn out the amp?Essentially, I’m trying to make the Connect: Amp more like the Port but without investing in that piece for the time being. This would eliminate the use of the Polk speakers and free up some space in the living room.
Hi, i have upgraded one of my connect amps for a new amp, and i plan to use it for tv sound also,My problem is my tv is in a different room than my sonos amp and virgin box with all wiring concealed in walls, currently my virgin box uses the HDMI to TV for standard TV Audio, how can i get sound through my wired ceiling speakers that currently work via sonos app from new Amp,My TV has an ARC HDMI socketFYI, i have spare wires not used to TV from room where the virgin box and Amp are located, they areCAT5Optic cable2 x red/white line in plugssingle line with 3.5mm jack plug on
The Sonos system in my house includes a Beam connected to a TV that also has component A/V inputs. If I want to have a turntable in that same room, could I have that audio wired to the Sonos system through those TV audio inputs, and switch the source to the beam with the TV remote as if it’s a video device? If so, I assume an older turntable would require some kind of pre-amp, but could a player with built-in amp go direct?I realize it’s not optimal but I’m curious if it can theoretically work.
Hello, I have a sonos connect hooked up to a vintage Curtis Mathes record player/radio console. I have 2 other sonos speakers (play 1) in other rooms that are on opposite ends of my place. I am able to stream wireless services (Spotify, etc) through all speakers, including the Curtis Mathes and it sounds amazing. I would love to be able to play records wirelessly throughout my place, but I am unable to get the songs to play through the play 1 speakers, when I’m using the Line In setting and play records through the console.It seems I get some type of signal, because there is a buzzing that comes through the play 1 speakers that isn’t usually there, but no songs.Is there something I’m missing? Are the devices too far away from one another? Is it possible that these two pieces of equipment don’t communicate in the way I’d hoped? Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
I have gone through the setup process which was cumbersome as the connect amp and speaker wires all home run to a closet downstairs. So I got a 50’ ethernet cable and direct connected the connect Amp to the playbar in the family room below the TV. I set up the surrounds and they worked.I unplugged the 50ft ethernet cable however the Playbar and the Connect Amp are still both hard wired connected to ethernet and the same router. When I unplug the 50ft ethernet cable the surrounds turn off even though I set it up as instructed and both the playbar and the connect amp in the closet are hard wired to ethernet.I have done this from scratch 5 times to make sure I am not doing anything wrong Certainly there has to be a solution other than having a 50 ft cord from the closet to the family roomAny suggestions on what to do to make these work as surrounds given my configuration?
