Hi all, My setup consists of two Symfonisk speakers, stereo paired, and a Sonos Port. The Port has a line in from a Behringer sound card. The card is fed by a Raspberry PI and also has an analog line-in signal from the TV.I have set the Port to Autoplay line-in. When I start a film on Netflix (Chromecast connected to TV), the port is activated and sound comes up within two seconds through the Symfonisk speakers, which is good enough.However, if there’s a silent passage in the film, sound gets deactivated and it may take 5 seconds to activate again when signal is detected. Looks like Autoplay gets interrupted after a couple of seconds with no sound. Is there a way to prevent this from happening, other than manually switching input via the Sonos app?
Hello, Several Speaker of one of my Sonos Playbar are out of order (membrane torn)I disassembled the playbar with success a get the 3 or 4 speakers to changeI would like to buy some new ones. Not with the Sonos AfterSale Service of course.Does someone have the specifications of these ones? We can see on the speaker : PVT16312512 Tutorial to disassembled : Thanks.
Does anyone use the Sonus Amp connected to standard passive hifi speakers and DJs through that ? Do you notice any delay from mixer headphones vs output if used simply like a standard amp and speakers ? I understand the delay problem when including other wireless sonus products , but what about in this method ?
Hi, I’m building up my Sonos network and have just got a connect amp but struggling to get it set up, I’ve tried a factory reset, hard wiring from my connect which is connect to my router, wiring the amp direct to my router all with no joy - it always identify’s the new product in my amp but then in the final connection part after I’ve pressed the two buttons on the front it just times out, any ideas guys? Cheers
This conversation deals with Stand-a-Lone Routers and not Mesh Networks which involve a Main Node and one or more satellites positioned throughout your home. Mesh Networks are becoming increasingly popular; but require additional setup steps versus a stand-alone router. That said...let’s begin… Routers are becoming more sophisticated year over year and promising faster speeds and more features. In terms of connectivity over Wi-Fi you have 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac and now ax which promises speeds approaching 10GB over Wi-Fi. Wow...that’s fast!! Dual Band routers with a single 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz band are the most common. Tri-Band routers are increasing in popularity having a single 2.4Ghz band and two 5Ghz bands. Other features that are being touted and listed in no particular order are: Guest Networking Parental Controls WPA2 and now WPA3 (Security protocols) Wireless on/off button WPS (Wi-fi Protected Setup for client devices that support it) Detachable Antennae (some routers look like insects
I have a Sonos Port connected to my Denon AVR-X3500H. I had an odd problem: when playing music from any of my sources my Denon would go into protect mode after 10 or so minutes. I tried using the coax digital output and then the RCA analog outputs - same problem. The Port was located on the top of my Salamander rack with the Denon on the first shelf below. I moved the Port to the bottom shelf of the rack and the problem seems to be resolved. Anyone with a similar experience? What was your fix?
I currently have a Denon Receiver with floor-speakers connected to my SONOS system via ZP80. Add to that an LG OLED55B7 with an LG 2.1 Soundbar and LG UltraHD BluRay UBK90. The TV is further connected to a Playstation. The BluRay serves as a CD-player when needed. I may add a turntable to the system in the near future. I am contemplating replacing the Receiver/ZP80 with a SONOS:AMP but I’m concerned that there are too few connectors on the AMP to service this e.g. I can’t use the BluRay as a CD player unless I turn the TV on as well. the TV’s ARC HDMI is noted by LG as only supporting LG Audio. There were known time-lag problems with LG OLED TVs and the SONOS soundbars which is why I went with an LG soundbar. Is my analysis correct? Also is the AMP forever tied to having to work in SONOS report-to-base mode?
I have a Russound A-H484 Multi-Source Multi-Zone Hub. I recently purchased a Sonos Amp, and have the speakers in the room directly connected. Works fine. I would like to connect the Sonos as a ‘source’ to the hub as to leverage the 2 external rooms via the CAT-5 and their own separate amps. Is there a way to treat the Sonos Amp as a source to plug into #1 below, thereby then sending signal to the other two channels? (proposed with the dotted red lines). The goal would be to send signals to the 2 external channels. IMAGE ATTACHED FOR CLARITY. SONOS AMP TO RUSSOUND A-484 HUB
On Sunday I was listening to music like normal on my deck. I have two outdoor rated speakers connected to my sonos amp. Volume was at about 75%. Someone knocked on my door so I went to see who it was and after about 15 min conversation I went back to my deck. Immediately I noticed the volume wasn’t much louder than a normal conversation. I check my sonos app and the volume had not moved. I also checked spotify and same situation, no change either. I tried using different streaming services and nothing helped. unplugged the amp and plugged it back in with no change. I only use streaming services to play music. Any help? Im completely lost. Thanks in advance
Hi there I have a couple of questions regarding the Connect Amp and in-ceiling speakers with the new Arc. Several third party reviews I have watched on the Arc suggest that in-ceiling surrounds do not pair well with the Arc because they muddle the sound from the Atmos speakers from the Arc. Is there any truth to this? If I use the Connect Amp and in-ceiling surround speakers with the Arc, will True Play tuning on the Arc work with third party in-ceiling surround speakers or do I need to use Sonance speakers? The information reviewed on the Sonos website says you can use third party speakers with Connect Amp as surrounds but does not mention compatibility with True Play. Thanks Dan
Hi.For my home I am planning to build in in-ceiling speakers in combination with the Sonos Amp.Due to the low installation depth, I am thinking to use two KEF Ci160TR speakers in combination with one Ci200TRb subwoofer (to have a bit of bass anyway).Unfortunately, due to the construction of the house, it is not possible to build in deep (er) speakers.Would the system work nicely if I connect it as shown in the diagram below?The subwoofer can be set to "Mono Mode".
I install a fair few playbar/sub/surround setups for my customers, A lot prefer it to dedicated speakers and an amp due to the minimal disruption to the decor to hide wires etc and the sonos sub is a gorgeous looking thing which appeals, but when I have a customer with a taste for more bass than the sub can deliver or a slightly oversized room it seems a terrible shame I cant add more than 1 sub to the room. Is there some technical limitation, or is it just a policy decision? To me it seems a no brainer to add the feature if its technically possible, it would be an easy way to sell more subs no problem, and would mean it would be an easier sell to put sonos in instead of an av amp. I have done a couple of jobs with hdmi amps feeding in wall speakers, dual svs pb2000 or pb 13 ultras and play 3 surrounds, but most of the time when I pitch along those lines the client says if we are going down that road I may as well go the full hog and get an av amp.

Sorry for my English , I'm having problems with my 2 play 5 speakers connecting online, has a lot of audio delay by 3 sec, I hadn't had that problem for 4 years, without compressing the audio follows the problem, I think the 10.6 update has that problem. Any solucion?
I have 3 Muso Qb speakers and I want to use Port and Sonos app to play music using Spotify or network drive Muso speakers are all connected with Ethernet cable in network setting and I’m using Airplay my question is - Can I use Sonos Port to setup same connection and play all 3 speakers at same time thanks alex
Hi everyone! I've just bought a Sonos Port for my home system. Unboxed, connected to the wifi and then plugged my record player into it. Everything works fine for now. But the day after it won't work rightly anymore: it doesn't find the Line-IN. I tried to replace the cables so many times and I tried also switching OFF and ON again by unplugging the power cable, but nothing to do. I can't even reset the Port cause there are no instructions online about that. I tried to reset it plugging the power cable while pressing the connecting button behind the box (like u do with Sub) but it just reconnects automatically to my wifi without new setup settings. Hope that my english is ok and hope that you can help me with that problem. Thank you
Bonjour, J’ai pas mal arpenté les discussions pour m’en rendre compte: il n’est pas possible de diffuser le son d’une télé normale (pas smart) sur une paire de Sonos One, sans passer par une playbar ou une Beam, pour regarder des films. Que ce soit pour une question de budget ou pour une question de garder le minimum d’accessoires visibles autour de ma télé, j’aurais souhaité pouvoir me passer de ces éléments. Certes ils doivent améliorer encore le son, mais je n’en demande pas tant. > Cher Sonos, pensez-vous développer dans un futur proche un produit qui permettrait cette connection si intuitive, qui serait donc fidèle a votre marque, et que tant d’utilisateurs, j’ai l’impression, semblent désirer? Contrairement à plusieurs de vos concurrents vos produits offrent une modularité et liberté très agréable, mais ce point serait peut-être pour moi votre talon d’Achille…? Merci Sonos!
I know there is a fair amount on this forum about having Sonos expand their equalization options. I just added a relatively inexpensive equalizer (under $100) from Sweetwater and the results are amazing. I use Sonos in 2 houses and in for the equalizer it’s just a Connect to a multi-room amp, so no Sonos speakers. The equalizer is here: https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/FBQ800--behringer-minifbq-fbq800
I’m looking at cost-effective ways to adding my already-installed wired outdoor speakers to my new Sonos system with Playbar, three Ones, and Sub. The Amp is not in my budget right now (not after just buying all the other equipment) so I’m on eBay looking at other items. I’ve found a used Connect (ZP90) that looks like it will do the job as far as plugging in RCA cables and connecting, but I’m concerned with it being an older legacy product that it will not work. I don’t care about using the S1 app versus S2 app, I just want to be able to use my living room (Playbar, Sub, two Ones), my kitchen (One SL), and my outdoor speakers to work on one network instead of switching to a separate bluetooth setup. Thanks in advance.
