If you own a Sonos TV component such as Beam, Arc or Amp you’ll be familiar with the following screensaver and similar: ARC backdropThese components output a video signal to show that they're connected. Sonos should release an update that allows users to display ‘Currently Playing’: At a later date maybe even introduce Google Cast and Apple Airplay (Video)
Hi,I have a Sonos Amp currently running 2 outdoor Sonance speakers. I understand the Amp can run 2 pairs of Sonance speakers wired in parallel.My Amp is right in the centre of the house and it is a very tortuous route to outside, also our house is 300+ years old and the walls are enormously thick. I managed to get the cable for the current Sonance speakers through the house when we had floors up and through the wall using a redundant Virgin media hole which had been drilled previously by an engineer.To add a second set of Sonance outdoor speakers, I don’t really want to have to take up floors and try to drill through the wall (it’s close to 1m thick in places). Could I simply cut the current cable outside the house and add one of these:https://www.richersounds.com/qed-3-way-speaker-switch.htmlThen use the existing cables from it off to the current speakers and a new cable from it to the new speakers? Appreciate it will play the same music etc, but that’s fine I won’t ever want to have
I am interested in getting of their consoles (the standard) with vinyl and Sonos integration. curious if you can link up a Sonos sub to it? I realize you can play Sonos music through it, and I assume it is using something like a Sonos amp to pull that off. Curious if you can add to their speakers with a sub or even rear speakers.
I wondered if people have experience with a similar set up. I plan to have 2 turntables and a mixer for DJing. From the mixer to the Sonos amp with phono leads which powers 2 ceiling speakers. The question is before I set this all up is if I am not pushing the sound to a multiroom set up and just going via the amp to the speakers will there be a delay? Obviously the sound through the headphones and the speakers would need to match. Lot of money to spend as a test!
Hi,My son’s bedroom has ceiling speakers which are wired back to an amplifier in the living room. We currently have a Sonos Connect connected to the amplifier which he uses to stream music to listen via his ceiling speakers. He is now keen to get a turntable, and I’m thinking the best thing to do would be to get a 2nd Sonos Connect, wire that up to the turntable in his bedroom and group it with the Connect in the living room so that the audio comes out of the speakers in his ceiling.Would that work? Would it matter that the Connect in his bedroom would have an input (the turntable) but no output? I guess the other option would be to get him a 2nd hand Play 5, but it seems a shame not to make use of his ceiling speakers. Thanks
Curious if anyone has tried any of the following to charge their Sonos Move. There is no mention of these products working with the Sonos Move in the description or Q&A and I know the Sonos Move is fussy so I was hoping to get someone to confirm which, if any, to purchase: Charger 1Charger 2Charger 3Charger 4 Thanks in advance.
Hello! I recently purchased a set that included Arc, Sub (Gen 3), One SL (Pair), but I’m now realizing that I will not be able to use all the components together due to the layout of the room and placement of the TV. As we figure out what to do, I’m hoping that a Sonos savant on here could answer the following:can I use the Arc as the rear speaker (behind where we sit while watching TV) and the pair of Ones as the front speakers (next to the tv) I have the option of hanging the Arc above the TV but it will be a few inches from the ceiling. I’ve read this is a bad idea. True? If I decide to not use the Arc, is it possible to just pair the Ones with the sub?Thanks for your thoughts!
Hi Sonos friends. I am considering connecting a Sonos connect gen2 or port to my Control4 ea-3 to stream music from my Control4 tidal to my Sonos arc. this way I add an extra room to my Control4 ecosystem. Has anyone seen this done before and am I right in assuming that I can stream (no hard connection ) from the connect or port to the arc?
From the way Sonos has grown and improved over the last few years I can see them launching headphones soon.Similar concept as the Roam in the way it can be docked (+charge) when not in use, It would group to a room as the Ikea SYMFONISK Sound remote does, when you pick it up from the dock it could auto mute the room (toggle option in the settings) - diverting audio to the headphones. Headphones should have Bluetooth like the Move and Roam for when out of the house.Not something I will personally use but I can see a lot of elderly customers and people who have cinema setups using this.Few thoughts on how it could work:Toggle option for auto muting (or not) the grouped room upon removal from the dock Option for a user to be able to listen to headphones whilst another user is still listening to the existing Sonos speakers, same audio coming out of all (good for a user who is hard of hearing) Headphone dock could have an audio input External charger as well as dock More in depth EQ setting

Sonos v2 connect not working? Well I thought mine was either faulty or otherwise completely bricked. It would not reset. There was no green light, however hard I tried to reset it.I disconnected reconnected via Ethernet to my router. I pressed the play and vol+ buttons a few times. Eventually the Sonos app picked it up, but again still not working , I had to give it a few goes. Eventually the Sonos app picked it up successfully. Whilst the Sonos connect device didn’t appear in the app as a registered device, the app then indicated it was performing an update. All my other Sonos products subsequently disappeared from the app as my registered devices. I left it 5 mins then the Sonos app prompt me to disconnect power from the connect, which I did , I then reattach to power whilst still connected to Ethernet and the app indicated it was continuing with the update and setup process. I subsequently had to rename it, as if from new. The app eventually then started to show all my other Sono
Hello all, I have been mostly a lurker here and really appreciate how much info everyone has shared. This morning I solved a pesky problem and wanted to share.I have several Sonos around the house (using wired connection/SonosNet) but this specific problem relates to my upstairs room where I have an old Yamaha receiver, Sony CD player and Audio Technica turntable wired to a sub and non-powered speakers. The receiver is hooked up to a Sonos Connect. In the room are two G1 Play:5s. All this played together well for a couple of years, with no lags when playing LPs or CDs. That started about a month ago. Boo! I went through the forums and tried adjusting compression, selecting AutoPlay, changing channels, etc. without success. I thought the lag would just be a fact of life, I would just have to mute either the speakers or 5s when playing discs. Then over the weekend I wanted to play a CD with one of the 5s outside. It just kept dropping out and was driving me nuts (y'all know how it is). U
Hello just purchased a epson 4040 pro series projector.i currently have sonance outdoor satellite speakers throughout the yard paired with Sonos amp and Sonos Hub. I also bought a denon audio receiver, a hdmi switcher, Apple TV. The projector is mounted outside in a weatherproof enclosure. The screen is motorized and sits on the group and it sealed in a weatherproof box that has to be opened before using remote to control screen. my question is it possible- hdmi from projector to hdmi switcher,hdmi from switcher to audio reciever. Audio out from Sonos port to audio in on reciever. To use the sonance outdoor speakers for the projector.then to also be able to use the speaker to watch live tv.
Hello i would like to discuss an idea that involves any music artist that uses monitors speakers. Im currently on a budget to find ways of finding great hardware speakers that work with mixing music through a DAW. I currently own a One SL and i am able to listen to my tracks through the sonos app thats connected with my sound cloud. I made a playlist to reference 1 song and comparing the mixes to my own songs. I feel that a solution would be made if sonos made a 2 ways speaker thats not wireless and is easier to connect to a computer to a usb mixer and xlr output to the product. This would help so much for me as an artist and for other artists and would be very competitive to many popular studio monitor speaker products. Thank you.
Hi. Im trying to use my Sonos Port with Denon Amp. (DENON DRA-800H) with no luck. There is no sound from input (output works). I’ve connected Port using RCA to CD 2 IN port, no sound. Then I’ve used COAX cable to connect to CD IN port, no sound as well. Im sure that Port is streaming, because when I connect it to Phono input, the sound plays as it should. Any help help?
My western digital mybook died and I need to replace it. I tried using a WD My Cloud Home, but couldn’t get my sonos S1 to access the drive. I tried to use WD customer service to resolve the problem, but found them lacking, and returned it. I subsequently learned that I could have changed the settings on the drive (SMB1, SMB2, SMB3), but it was not easy to find that information. Can anybody recommend an NAS that will work seamlessly with Sonos that is available today, and, preferably one that is easy to install and setup? Any help would be appreciated.
