Video half way down http://www.theverge.com/2016/5/18/11702284/google-home-io-2016-ai-voice-search-advertisement Is it me, or is it the over the top American thing, but half way through I became annoyed. Perhaps because the family were talking to google more than each other!!!
Hey Sonos Engineers! I know this has been touched upon. I previously submitted this request to support and they encouraged me to share here to keep the conversation going. Is there any chance we could implement a soft switch for line-in audio to bypass the computer for "delay disable" functionality. I understand and appreciate the reason for the delay. However, I'm running turntables through a mixer and into the line-in of the PLAY:5. Can't teach my son to mix records with that delay, and since we're set-up in a communal space, my wife is not too keen on bringing out the old mix monitors. Can you dig it? Can we figure out a way to manually disable the delay on an individual speaker basis? Otherwise love the gear! Thanks! Here's quote from customer support. Hope it isn't too heavy handed or out of school to post: "I'm not on the development team, but I personally think that it wouldn't be too hard to implement some kind of soft switch to bypass the computer
Is there any converter on the marker that converts dts to dolby digital (With hdmi and optimal output and Hdmi input) Playing Blu rays With only dts HD or dts soundtracks is not possible With the playbar (I dont want to select pcm as output so that is not an option) Or IF anyone can recommend a blu-ray player With option to re encode dts to DD 5.1. IF you recommend one I need complete settings in audio menu. My Sony BDP-S 5500 has dolby digital compatible output (converts dts to DD 5.1 using edid) but its NOT I say again NOT working tried everything...reset all different settings etc. My tv supports DD 5.1 pass thru via hdmi (arc) to optical out on Tv so thats not the issue. Even tried connecting via coax out to toslink adapter and then to playbar without getting DD 5.1 . Please can anyone recommend a solution to get DD 5.1 to playbar When playing blu-ray disc with only dts soundtracks. The DD 5.1 soundtracks are always dubbed in some shit language like Spanish so I c
My customer has 4 connect boxes and 4 amps. I want to hookup the behringer XR12 wireless mixer to run a Samson wireless headset/mic. Have you had any interaction with something like this? The connect box has only 2 outputs. I was thinking of putting the Wi-Fi mixer on the main connect unit then put the headset on another unit as line-in and stream it to the connect with the mixer. What do you think of this setup?
I have a question for which I have found half the answer, but not all of it so far... Situation is as follows: - My only speaker at home at the moment is a Playbar, it might get extended with another Play (1/3/5) at some point. I have no passive speakers to use. - I would like to use the playbar with a turntable, which I would operate as a stand-alone device, i.e. not connected to any further system / receiver. The turntable has a built-in pre-amp. - I gather I can hook up the turntable with the sonos system using a connect device. --> Question: does this setup require a connect:amp, or would a connect be enough? Again, no additional passive speakers to use, all I want to achieve is linking the turntable with the playbar. Thanks for any insights :-)
Hi, In the same physical room, I have two Sonos "rooms": a TV room with a playbar, a Sub and two play:1 acting as surround speakers, and a "music" room wtih two play:5. Now, I realized that the play:5s sound much better when used in conjunction with a Sub, so I'm trying to share the same Sub between my "music" room and my "TV" room. Unfortunately, the only way I found to achieve that is by removing the Sub from one room and adding it to the other, which is painful, slow and also forces me to redo all optimizations. Is there any way the same Sub can be shared between two rooms? Sonos, could you add this to the wishlist? :) Thanks, David
Hello, I'd like to add a Play speaker in my garage (probably mount on the wall or ceiling). My garage is not temperature-controlled and I live in New Jersey, USA. So in the winter it will be cold (20-30 F) and in the summer it will be pretty warm (70-90 F) . . . pretty much what the temperature is outside. Can Play speakers handle these temps? What about the Connect:AMP? I'm also thinking about outdoor speakers, but the Connect:AMP would be in an unconditioned utility closet. Thanks, in advance, for your help!
I realise this is a bit of an "old chestnut" topic, but thought my experience may be of interest to anyone going this route. Had a rather nice Xmas present of Sennheiser RS 175 wireless phones. These have a digital optical input (cable supplied) as well as the usual analog inputs. Wired this to my Sonos Connect optical output (the Connect is powering my conventional Hi Fi system) The result is very pleasing, works a treat with Sonos. The sound quality is all I could wish for & the range seems more than adequate for our 3 bed house.
So it's Boxing day, and I've just received a lovely big SONOS Play:1 speaker for Christmas. I set the speakers up and try to find them on my system. Nothing. I do some research, trying to figure out why I can only play through SONOS app and verified programmes approved through the SONOS app. Why something which clearly cost more than a few pretty pennies is essentially useless for anything other than playing music. No live sound, no video sync, nothing but music through SONOS. So the decrepit old speakers I have had since 2000 are essentially doing a better job than the basic model of SONOS. Not only this but my cheap shower bluetooth speaker I bought for my boyfriend (£5.99) can do what this supposedly amazing modern and high quality technology cannot. Which is play ANY sound off of my computer or phone that I want it to. How is this a complicated concept and why, after literally years and years of community comments and wailings and clearly strong customer dissatisfaction hav
I absolutely love the Sonos Windows and Android apps and my new 5.1 and other Play speakers. You did an excellent job on this system! I also want to listen to all the great music sources while working at my PC and don't always want to bother everyone else turning on the real speakers (I develop Windows software at home). Please create a new "Play:Win" device that can be a Sonos "Room" which can send audio to any of the Windows Playback devices. E.G. headset, speakers, digital audio S/PDIF 5.1 etc. same as how a user can select audio playback output on a PC. You can build a Windows device driver to do this. This way I can use my local USB headset and you don't need to come out with those wireless headsets quite so soon. I don't want to have to also run WinAmp or Kodi or something to play my local FLAC files that I can already play via Sonos reading my NAS drive. And I want to use the great features in the Sonos app for internet radio, playlists, favorites etc. which would
Hi I have turntables & a Traktor z2 mixer plugged in (with phono cables) to a Sonos connect, playing wireless from 2x grouped play1 speakers. I'm experiencing a lot of delay between the music I can hear directly through my mixer (with headphones attached) and the music that plays through songs speakers; causing beat matching issues etc. Is there anything I can do to improve this? I ran a diagnostic & the number is 5248173. Thanks, Alex
Hi there- I just got a vinyplay, which hooks up to my sonos connect via audio cables (red/white). I also have two play 1s in one room and a subwoofer. For some reason, I can only get one of the play 1s to play. The other play 1 just has loud noise coming out of it, so I've unplugged the red cable entirely on the record player so to not send anything through to it. Any ideas? Thanks Zak
Dear Sonos, I have a TV with poor sound placed on the wall above the kitchen table. Therefor I would like to connect it directly to my Play1 which is on the kitchen table. That would be the ideal solution, since adding a Connect station would just be too much in terms of investment and equipment. Connect is useful when connecting to a serious receiver, not for a simple TV. Sonos, can you please put your customers first and add AUX/LINE IN to the Play1 and Play3? Not doing so will eventually cost you customers, since competition does not rest. And adding the feature will most like augment sales revenues for Play1 and 3. Thank you in advance for serving your most loyal customers. Best regards, Rob
Hello, I'm putting a pair of speakers in the ceiling in our new house in the living room to jam Sonos. The Connect Amp will be in my AV closet a couple rooms away. We will have a TV on the wall in the living room. Can I just connect the left and right RCA jacks on the back of my TV with an extender cable to the left and right RCA jacks on the Connect Amp pictured below? If so how would I tell Sonos to use the TV as a source to send sound to the in ceiling speakers and control the volume with the TV remote? We will have an iPad mounted on the wall to control the Sonos music.
Hi, I currently own a Play 5 and a Bridge (both 3 years old) and I absolutely love the ease of use and the sound coming out of those speakers. The Bridge is in my living room next to the router and the Play 5 speaker is in the kitchen. I also use a separate, non-Sonos, system which consists of the following: In the living room: 1) NAD 3020 Receiver from the late 1980s - Has "Aux", "Phono", "Tuner", "Tape" inputs 2) Rega RP 1 turntable connected to the above NAD's Phono input 3) PSB Bookshelf speakers also wired into the above NAD In the bedroom: 1) In-wall speakers with homerun wiring that runs into the living room. They have their own volume control in the bedroom. But these speakers are not hooked up to anything so they are not in use right now. A friend recently gave me his old, in working condition, Zone Player 100 (ZP100). My goal is to build a whole-home audio streaming solution using the components I listed above AND the old ZP100. I'm thinking this is th
Here's questions if you connect a turntable to Sonos, and like to listen to records in the room where you keep the turntable. How do you deal with the slap-back delay between the needle surface noise and the music from the speakers? Has anyone tried having a separate analog connection to that room's speakers with an option to switch back and forth? My connection in the home office goes Turntable > Marantz Amp "pre out" jack > Sonos Connect:Amp > wired ceiling speakers. I think I can solve this problem if I also connect both amps to a speaker switch box, then out to the wires to the ceiling speakers. Basically choosing if I want the speakers in sync with the needle or the rest of the house. This would also help with the cable box audio into that same Marantz amp to have it be more in sync with the mouths on the TV. Any thoughts or suggestions on how to do this? This item from Monoprice is the closest off-the-shelf item I've found that can do this. Most boxes like this let you
I just posted this in a Harmony support forum as well, but it is probably as likely to be addressed by Sonos as it is as by Harmony. . . maybe more likely? ------------- I like the Harmony hub remotes a lot. They have simplified the universal remote problem in several rooms in my house. So much so that I am now actively using two Harmony Hub Ultimates and one Harmony Hub, one each in 3 different rooms in my house. I use multiple audio input sources, and have Sonos eqpt in 5 rooms of my house. Two of these are the Sonos:Connect modules, so that I can send audio to and from multiple sources using my existing AV amps and speakers. The Sonos:Connect devices send the audio using 'Line-In' (this is Sonos' labeling/nomenclature). To send audio from my office to my den, I select the source as (office Sonos:Connect - Line-In) on the Den unit. I have to do this using the Sonos controller. . . I have not found any way to use the Harmony remote to select that as a source. It would be
Hi everyone, Fairly new to the community but not new to Sonos. Been using it for a while and loving what it lets me do. I've got two play 1s, a play 5 and a playbar and just want more! I'm massively into my music and have recently been missing the physical nature of having CDs/Vinyl that I can call my own. With this in mind I've been doing lots of research into turntables and have whittled my choices down to three. Pro-ject Debut Carbon, Rega RP1 (w. Performance Pack) and the Audio Technica LP120. I know the first two are supposed to have better sound quality but having read on here that I'd need a phono pre-amp between either of the first two and the Play 5 but wouldn't have that issue if i went with the third one as it already has one built in. Since reading that I've then come across a number of places where people seem to be saying they have wired their PDCs directly into the play 5 without a pre-amp and have then just turned the 'line-in' volume up to the max. They are all ver
