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!
I am having problems with a bridge which seems to be intermittent in operation. I have seen various posts about bridge psu voltage dropping which is indicative of a psu failure. Is there a way of seeing the psu voltage on the diagnostics page. There is lots of information on 192.168.1.xxx:1400/support/review but I can't seem to be able to see the voltage being provided to the bridge. I have a voltmeter which is showing 4.8v at the psu plug but it would be good to see the true voltage when connected to the bridge unit itself. Is there anywhere I can see this?
To use the Connect:amp as a complete living room audio solution, it needs a digital input with its next hardware update. For example I would like to hookup my passive speakers to my TV, without having to manually turn on my receiver. In that case I would need digital input in the connect:AMP for easy setup, and then I wouldnt need a receiver at all and be able to stream music through the connect:amp without having to turn on the TV. It could be done just with a fiber optic input port, or even better with hdmi pass through. Of course with support for digital audio content like DTS. (I know that the playbar will do the job, but want to use my existing speakers)
Morning all. So i have a pretty good set up in the house, 4 ceiling speakers downstairs linked to a sonos amp, 4 upstairs linked to another sonos amp and a play 3 which rides solo so can move around where necessary as we often have gatherings at the house. PROBLEM... i think one of the speakers has blown in my play 3. How is this possible? and do i now have to go and buy a whole new unit or can it be repaired? I haven't had it that long and have no receipt so i'm pretty screwed but i never imagined that it would blow that quick or at all due to the quality of snons products.Has anyone else experienced this? I was going to buy a sonos playbar on the run up to christmas but am not sure as they seem to have a shelf life of over a year then they break. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
Hi, I'm planning to purchase a CONNECT:AMP to power some outside speakers, and I noticed it has audio INPUT. If I connect a device to this such as a CD player or turn table, can I then stream this input throughout the whole Sonos system (I have 3 different rooms connected) or only to the speakers connected to the amp? Thanks in advance! JD
Honestly, I have the darnedest time finding a good pros and cons of using Play 1 or Play 3 as the rear in a 5.1 Surround Setup. I have currently have a 3.1 Setup (for you noobs that's the playbar + sub), a "spare" Play 5, it's usually in the garage but I will set it up outside in the backyard when we have parties, and the boost. Obviously in the inside, it is the Sub and Play Bar. The Speakers will either be wall mounted or on stands. If placed on stands will be about 1 feet (to a max of 2 feet) behind the main/centered sofa. If I wall mount, I have a few more creative options, such as placing them up a higher (I have ten feet "vaulted" ceilings) and more in the corners of the room, so everyone in the room gets a more surround experience. However, I know that opens up another can of of worms, but from what I read I am confident the true play will balance it all out. If I wall mounted, my hypothesis is to get the Play 3's but then my brain says that's just my ego compensating. So I am c
I recently decided to use a connect:amp with existing rear speakers and a playbar for surround sound.I noticed that the rear speakers will only stream sounds from my tv. How do I also stream music through my connect:amp rear speakers?
I have Sonos speakers all over my house except in the room I have my office PC. I know you can run the Windows SOnos App to control your Sonos speaker, but is there any way to run the stream I hear throughout my house through my PC speakers when I am in my office?
I just bought into the Sonos Experience on New Years. The sales rep. said their was rumor of the playbar..which led to my decision to buy (2) play 5's, in hopes that in the near future I could also use them for Hometheater experience. What I have read thus far concerns me. No mention of Play 5 combined with Playbar.?? Will they work, or did I make a mistake....??
Hi, I have some power amps here that don't have any volume control as such they were originally designed to be used with a dedicated pre-amp/DAC for volume control. Now I believe the Connect has volume control? I know the pre-out (RCA) voltage I require to achieve full volume from my amplifier. But I can't find what the expected output voltage is from the Connect at full volume when it is for example streaming from Spotify? I need to know that it is going to be capable of achieving a decent volume otherwise I will need to purchase an additional pre-out booster which introduces its own problems. Cheers, Luke
Hi all, I am new to this forum and just received and set up my SONOS Connect to replace 10-year-old Squeezebox SB3 . Pretty easy setup with my existing audio system and ethernet /wifi system within 15 minutes. I have issue with low volume from Connect despite set the volume to maximum from SONOS apps/desktop, playing from both music library, Spotify and iphone music. Volume dial was set at 40 of Krell KAV 400Xi integrated amplifier. With same volume setting, my previous SB3 can play a louder music. Please note I am using Coaxial output (digital) to Cambridge Audio DacMagic then to Krell. Nevertheless, the sound produced from Connect and my current audio setup is much warmer, crystal clear than previous SB3, just the volume at Integrated Amp need to set higher. Not a big issue, just curious why... Please advise.
After reading a lot in the forum it has become clear to me that the priority of SONOS is not reproduction on headphones, but personally I would like to design a solution to listen to my music on headphones. Someone has tested the connect + amplifier solution? It makes sense to add a DAC? Someone has a different idea? (I like to use a non-wireless headphone) Thanks for your time, Albert
