Hi everyone, I've got a few questions about connecting my Riga RP1 Turntable to my Sonos network. Ultimately, I want the best and most authentic sound quality from my turntable and want to know whether there is any difference in sound quality between the following: Option 1 (my current set-up) - Riga RP1 connected to a phono preamp then use the line out to my play:5 Option 2 - Riga RP1 connected to a Connect:Amp then out to a pair of speakers Option 3 - Riga RP1 connected to a Phono Amp then out to a pair of speakers (then perhaps incorporate a Connect so that I can access Sonos though this system) Presumably, playing vinyl through my current set-up is using a digitally converted signal which I guess a true vinyl aficionado would say is a no-go. Does the Connect:Amp also convert the analogue audio output to a digital output before pushing it out of the speakers? Does the Connect:Amp support a Phono input or will I still need to use my preamp? Are there any vinyl enthusiasts
When I updated the Sonos app it left a couple of my speakers disconnected and they won't reconnect. This is strange because, although our bedroom speaker doesn't appear in the list of available speakers in the Sonos controller, it still turns on each morning at 6am in line with our daily alarm. So the system must still be connected to this speaker. When I go through the procedure to connect the speaker again, I get to the point where you have to press the two buttons on the top of the speaker. At this point the Sonos app clearly instantly reacts to these buttons being pressed because it switches to the next screen. It then tries to connect the speaker but always fails to do so and invites me to try again. I have rebooted the wireless network too and also reset the Bridge. Any ideas?
Hello all, New to Sonos, and love it! My wife bought me a turntable (link below) mistakenly thinking that as it is Bluetooth compatible that it would work with Sonos. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ION-Audio-Air-LP-Conversion/dp/B00XCETWIW My question is, what do I need to get this turntable to work with my Play 1? Would I need a Connect or a Connect: Amp? Many thanks, Tom.
Hi, I am trying to install a new Sound bar on my system. I cannot get past a message "Network Problem" Please check internet ........ etc. My internet is fine, my user name and password are fine. All my other Sonos products work fine Help! Cheers Dave
When one room is actively playing music and i walk into a room which is not, i would like to have a way to click a button on an inactive speaker in the room to group the inactive room with the active room with out opening a controller. Could be three clicks of the play/pause or if commands could differ for an inactive speaker, then double clicking play/pause when the speaker is not playing.
Hi, I have a client interested in using his Sonos system in Tortola. Due to copyright / licensing issue in the BVI's he is unable to stream Pandora (which is his primary source) 1) Does anyone know what free services are available in the BVI's 2) Has anyone ever used Sonos thru a web proxy server Many thanks in advance.
Hi all I have a Connect that is connected to my HiFi. I also have a variety of 1s and 3s scattered around the house. If I use my Android controller to select radio or music from my library or phone, all speakers seem to play very well, uninterrupted, fairly indefinitely. However, if I try and use the Line-In on the Connect, the whole system drops out. All speakers stop except the Connect and I cannot connect to the Connect (jeez!) with the Sonos Controller on my phone. Eventually, the Connect also stops playing. I then usually need to wait a significant length of time (tens of minutes) before the Connect is accessible again (unless I power cycle it). Is this something that's been seen before? Does it sound like the Connect is faulty? It is about 2 meters away from the wireless router - could it still be network/signal strength issues? Thanks for any advice all, bit disappointing I can't use the Line-In on the Connect - it's one of the reasons I purchased it. BBz
I have an old HiFi system of which the only components still working are the turntable and the CD player. I have recently bought two Play1s and a Connect because I want to listen to my vinyl collection again – I bought a preamp too. I’d also like to listen to my large CD collection and I know I could connect the CD player directly to the Sonos Connect. I also know I could rip the CDs to a hard drive and ditch the CD player altogether, but I don’t really have the time to do that! So the question is – is there any way of keeping the turntable and the CD player both connected to the Sonos Connect at the same time and switching between the two rather than having to unplug one from the Connect and plugging in the other?
I have a DJ mixer that I use with professional monitors, I am wondering if I get Sonos connect and get one of the master outs from the mixer to the connect would there be any delay in reproducing the sound? Since it needs to get transferred wirelessly? I am worried the sound from DJ monitors would get played slightly earlier, a few milliseconds, can anyone confirm if my presumption is right?! Cheers!
Hi, Sorry if this is a stupid question, but i'm new to this. I recently purchased a Sonos Connect, and it is set up wirelessly, and working nicely. I have connected it to my KEF Sound System via a Yamaha Receiver. Is it now possible to add a Play 1 speaker wirelessly to the Connect, or does the fact that the Connect is attached to the receiver mean that I cannot do this? I would like to put the Play 1 in the bedroom. Any thoughts? Thanks.
I have my music library on an iMac desktop in the office area of my house. I have the Play bar, sub and two Play 1 speakers in a sun room. Until i got the Sonos components I would listen to my library by means of the Apple TV which was streaming to the sun room TV from the iMac. When I go to listen to the library from an Macbook Pro in the sun room I get an error message saying it can not be played as the server can't be reached. My question is, Is there a way to stream music from the Apple TV by means of the Sonos application on my laptop? Its nice not having to turn the Big Screen on like i have to do with the Apple TV and it would be even nicer to add music to the queue from my laptop by using the Apple TV. Hope this makes sense! Thanks -
My Sonos alarm stopped playing it's annoying (in a good way, for an alarm) little chime whenever the alarm was set and due to go off but the Internet was down. I have 4 ZP120's. Had them for what must be nearly 10 years. The chime must have last played 6 months to 1 year ago from what I can remember the last time our Internet was down. Cheers
I unplugged the Plays 5 which has worked well for a month. Plug back in and I go through to hook up and it is hooked up but does not show in my system. I have two more Play 1s and they both work. The 5 never shows. I sent diagnostics with a control number of 6671187. Please help.
Hello Sonos Community, We recently bought a play5 and a connect for my folks. Now i want to connect an old sony amp (ta-a200) to the connect so that i can play a cd or lp and can hear this from both the speakers connected to the amp and from the play5. The amp has input lines for phono,tuner,cd and aux and two tape inputs. There are also two REC outputs for the tapes lines. Off course there are also speaker wire outputs onwhich two speakers are connected. Now I connected the line out from the connect to the line in (aux). So that works i can listen spotify on both play5 and my speakers. Now i want to play a cd or lp and here is where i can get all boxes play at the same time. I have used the line out from the amp (tape rec) and connected this to the line in from the connect. This works but only the play5 produces sound. Apperantly the amp can only output speakerwires or tape rec. If I unselect the Taperec I get sound from the speakers but not the play5. I am thinking to use th
What about creating a portable speaker, with docking station that can live in the SONOS environment when inside the Wi-fi range home, and connects to bluetooth when taken out of the wifi range? Something similar to JBL Extreme in design, battery life, and weather-resistant. Sitting in a docking-station when home, playing the same music as Play 1,3,5, soundbar and at the same time charging internal batteries, ready to be taken out on the go? I would love that!
