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 have lost the connection to my sonos connect via the controller software.When i launch a network scan, I can see it has an IP-address. I have resetted the controller and I tried to re-add it, It is detected, but it won’t proceed to the end of the process.It ‘s probably a software issue, is there any possibility or hidden option to hard reset it?thx!
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.
Hello,Sonos Connect stopped playing music last week. It will not play any music via Sonos Radio, Apple Music, or Line-in without skipping. I also have a Sonos Arc that does not have this issue. Has anyone else experienced software obsolescence on their Connect and had to replace it with the Port?
Hi. How and what is the best way to connect Sonos Connect to an A/V Processor ? Do I need to use TOSLINK® optical audio cable or a digital coaxial cable ? How to use the Processor’s DAC ( Not the Sonos ) to hear best Audio as my Processor is preferred. I am adding my A/V Back panel , Don't know where to connect the cables. Thank you.
This is my setup:In my living room I have four wired speakers, have just purchased a new soundbar and sub, and am looking for a new receiver. In my kitchen and on my back patio, I have four wired speakers that are connected to a Sonos Connect. I stream Apple Music through the Connect and can play the same music inside and out at the same time. I want to wirelessly pair the new receiver I am about to purchase to the Connect so I can stream music in both areas at the same time. I’m considering a Denon receiver but haven’t made a decision yet. I’m just not 100% sure how to make this happen, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
What's up folks?I have an existing Sonos system throughout my home. A couple Play:5s and few Sonos Ones throughout. About a year ago I decided to build a vintage HiFi system. I want to integrate the two systems, so I'm considering picking up a Port. Anyway, long story short, all the line level inputs on my preamp are currently being used. I want to upgrade my cd player and I'm considering a dedicated transport only player (no on board DAC). My question is, since I only have one AUX input, can I connect the Port to my AUX input on my preamp then connect a transport only CD player to the Port. Effectively killing two birds with one stone. Adding streaming to my HiFi system while simultaneously using the port as a DAC for the CD transport? Will this work?Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time,Kyle
With most of my speakers, the Sonos Amp has a nice flat frequency response, just a little rolled off after 15KHz which I can’t hear anyway. But some speakers can cause peaking in the frequency response (typical problem with Class D without post filter feedback). I think it happens with the Sonos Amp when speakers have a negative phase at high frequency. At least that is the difference I have with this problematic speaker (Carmody Overnight Sensations). Here is the frequency response (voltage measurement at amp’s speaker terminals). This might be why some people have reported that the amp sounds bright. I never really thought so even with these speakers, but still I would like to be able smooth out the peak with EQ, and the existing treble control doesn’t do so well. Please, please, you can give this to us!edit: oops, previously I showed a curve that was generated after treble was turned one notch down.
Has anyone tried mounting an amp sideways behind TV? or would there be any problems?I have a set of ceiling speakers that are wired to behind my TV and I’d like a clean hidden wires setup, so I’m considering mounting my amp behind the TV somehow. The cable limitations for the HDMI are driving me to this solution.
I’d like to integrate my new bluetooth enabled turntable into my Sonos sound system-- which consists of two Sonos 1’s, the Beam, and the Sub (gen 3). What is the easiest and and least expensive way to do that? I cannot drop $400 on another Sonos device at this time. I bought a refurbished Sony SRS-XB23 wireless speaker, hoping to pair it which my turntable (which it does) and then with the rest of my system, but I think the Sony is not compatible, right?
I have a pair of floorstanders that I’d like use in new house but cannot run speaker cable to inconspicuously! There are power outlets already at each location of the floorstandrrs, can I use individual amps , 1 wired to the left flloostander and the other wired to the right floor stander to created a stereo pair- by grouping amps ??? Or by some other manic!
I got a turntable for christmas, and the first thing i did was set it up to check that everything worked, and it did. I connected it directly to my Sonos Play 5, and it automatically played to the Play 1 i also have. I the disconnected it and placed the turntable where i wanted it, and then moved my Play 5 about 1 meter due to the cable being short. I connected everything, but when i now play from my turntable the Play One keeps falling out like there is a bad connection between the Play 5 and 1. It works just fine if i play from Spotify, so i cant really understand why this is happening since it worked previously. Right now i just have to mute the play 1 speaker as it is impossible to listen to. I also have a Sonos Beam, and the same thing happens there. I have a fairly small living room, and didn’t move the Play 5 far at all, all devices are within 3-4 meters of each other. Any tips to fixing this would be greatly appreciated.
Excuse the perhaps silly question but I’m stumped. If I have the Sonos Amp, and the Rega Planar P1 turntable (which has no preamp), how can I get them working with my Sonos Five to play my records? Any advice is massively appreciated! Thank you.
Hello, I’m quite new and don’t know much about speakers and matching impedances and whatnot.Just purchased a Sonos amp, 2 Kefs Ci200qs, and plan to buy a pair of 8ohms outdoor speakers as well.My idea/question is as follow:Can I connect the 4 speakers to 4 speaker wall plate, and, using banana plugs from the wire that comes from the AMP disconnect the pair I do not want to use at the time? I wouldn’t change the wiring on the back of the Amp, that would stay in parallel, but just disconnect from the wall plate when I just want 1 single pair to play? Would that work? When 1 pair disconnected will the impedance go back to 8ohms?Thank you for the help!
Hi, I think it would be great to add the same HDMI ARC input to the SONOS PORT as the SONOS AMP have today so PORT can be seemlessly integrated to a TV set in the same way as Sonos AMP can but then use an amplifier and spreakers of choice. This would be a great upgrade in my eyes. Thanks /Fredrik
I've set my record player up to play through my Sonos with a Sonos Port, but it created a new room in the process. Is this normal? Or can I change it so I just have the record player set up within my only existing room. It works fine, just that I have two rooms now within my Sonos S2 app when I only have one!
When the battery of the Sonos Roam is dead and we plug it in, it takes a long time before it van connect tot the system. I would expect that such An expensive device would work immediately. Is this normal? If it is, this is a bit of a dissapointment.
