I have a connect amp and a playbar. I had a powered sub plugged into the amp and everything was great. I decided to add 2 bookshelf speakers to the amp as well for surround. I hooked it all up and did the surround setup in my browser. Now I only show one Sonos component and have no more signal going to the sub. The surround is working though. I'm about ready to toss this whole system and got back to a wired setup. The sound is great but it's been a pain in the ass. If anybody can tell me how to my sub back I'd sure appreciate it.
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)
My Sonos Connect is only providing an audio output intermittently to my hifi amplifier. I know it's the Connect that is at issue, rather than the amplifier, because my CD player is also connected to my amp and that is working just fine. I have also checked the Network Matrix, and the connection from the Root Bridge (a Play 3) to the Connect is fine (inbound/outbound is 43/38). Any ideas? Thanks! Mike
I would like to get a mono version of the connect amp. I have several rooms that I would like to put an in ceiling speaker, but don't really see the need for a stereo pair. I could certainly use a Play 1. But wold prefer the tidiness of an in wall / in ceiling speaker with a cable run back to a closet full of Connect Amps, some stereo, some mono as appropriate.
Love the system, but, sound from the CD player is distorted. The player is connected to a tuner/amplifier (TX-930/910) and the tuner is hard wired to the Sonos Connect via the REC cassette tape tap. Is this appropriate and if it is, do I need another amplifier to boost the signal to the Connect?
I have a ZP90 connected via "Coax/Digital Line Out" to my DAC/Amplifier in my living room. I would like to be able to adjust the volume from my Sonos Controllers/APs. Thus, I have the Output level for the "line-out" set to "Variable". However, with this setting the volume of the output is very, very low. I have to turn the amp up to almost full volume to reach a "normal" level. If I switch to "Fixed" level on the Line out volume, the level is fine - but then I can only adjust volume on the amplifier, not on the Sonos controllers. Dose anybody have a solution?
I would like to connect my subwoofer to a Connect Amp's subwoofer output. However, the sub out on the amp has a low frequency cutoff at 80hz. My subwoofer has its own variable lowpass filter and I do not want to feed it a filtered signal. Is there any way with the Connect Amp to feed my subwoofer a full-range signal from sub out, to allow the subwoofer's low pass filter to do all the filtering?
Hi I REALLY miss the ability to mute a single zone! Why did you change this! So many times I want to mute just one for a moment without stopping the other grouped zones. This is really a downgrade for me. Any chance you can make this configurable, or somehow still allow the mute button to function as an actual mute button?
I have a bridge connecting to router in living room. I have a Play 5 connected in kitchen and a Connect Amp connected 20 feet away in back of house. I want to add another Connect Amp in garage. It will be approximately 40 feet away from Connect Amp in back of house. Will the mesh connect them all?

I very much expect this has been asked for before, but is there any way to display/use the Sonos controller on the TV? I'd really like to see the album art, queue etc and be able to have a good way for guests to see/choose music and for that to be a conversation point even! An app shouldn't be too hard to implement on the major brands of smart TV. Much of the industry is driving towards making the TV the entertainment hub for the home.
Hi, moving house and celebrating by bumping up our stereo system. We plan on adding a turntable than using a new sonos system to distribute the output (and enjoy our music all over the house). I understand that a turntable must have a preamp to use the line in on a connect. Struggling to find if the turntables we are looking at meet the bill. So if someone could suggest a good turntable that will connect to a sonos i would be grateful. Our budget would be up to £500.
Hello, I'm creating zones in a new house I'm building and need some clarification. I understand that I can wire 4 speakers (8 ohms each) to 1 Connect:Amp, but typically this would be 2 left-channel speakers and 2 right-channel speakers. Can I still connect 4 speakers to the Connect:Amp if each speaker is a stereo (2 channel) speaker? Each speaker will have inputs for both the left and right channels, playing both channels through one speaker. Each speaker will still be just 8 ohms, but back at the Connect:Amp there will be 4 wires on each post instead of just 2. Thanks!
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....??
I'm a few months into my Sonos setup, and absolutely love it. Yes, my first (two!) cars didn't cost this much, but I consider it one of the best investments I've ever made. I have 5 zones with a mix of Play:5 and Play:3 speakers, and also using my own speakers -- which is where the trouble is. In my living room, I have a Connect:Amp hooked up to a pair of Polk RTiA1 speakers ([url]http://www.polkaudio.com/products/rtia1[/url]). The sound is... disappointing. I should clarify: The sound is spectacular, certainly more sophisticated than from my Play:3 or Play:5 speakers, which already sound great. But it doesn't seem as "powerful" as it should be, for lack of a better word. For one thing, with all zones on the same volume setting, my living room speakers are noticeably quieter than the others. I have to turn up the volume in that room by perhaps 20% to equal the volume being played elsewhere. Also, with the volume set somewhere around 5% maybe, there's not really any music coming o
