Hi My son is about to start university and will have access to the college internet through an ethernet port. I have read previous threads on access in such situations but wonder if this specifically should work : BTHomeHub5 - disabled WIFI both frequencies; ethernet wired to access point. Play 1 and laptop ethernet wired to BTHH5. Will laptop be able to control Play1? Alternatively, if Play1 ethernet wired to access point, can laptop or android phone connected to WiFi control the unit? John
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!!!
Dear Sonos: First of all, I need to admit that your quality sound is amazing, but the interface....well... it's horrible, a mistake....and I suppose everyone knows that. So, what exactly are you trying to solve about this? I can imagine with: 1. Spotify App? 2. Amazon Alexa? I have named these because you're developing in these apps. 1. Spotify When i use Spotify on my Smartphone, I'm able to use the equalizer, music quality, etc. When I use Spotify to control my Sonos, i can't use the equalizer on Spotify, so? Must I use the Sonos App? and....I don't understand, are you developing a new way to control your Sonos, but with limitations? And worst? I just bought my Playbar and Sub, I just wanted an excellent Sonos App like the Sonos Audio. 2. Amazon Alexa I don't understand when you say on August 2016: Beginning in 2017, anyone with an Alexa-enabled device — right now that's the Echo, Echo Tap, or Echo Dot — will be able to control Sonos speakers with voice commands.
I have a system with 3 zones - Kitchen has a ZP10, Bedroom has a ZP100 and Living Room a ZP90 through an amp. I can link Kitchen and Bedroom together fine, but if i try and link Kitchen or Bedroom with Living Room, the Living Room will not play. Even if all zones are separated I can't play one thing in Living Room and another in Bedroom or Kitchen (Living Room cuts out when I try). However, I can play different music in Bedroom and Kitchen with no problem. Any help would be much appreciated as to how I get Living Room linking again.
We just built a home and have three areas of existing speakers in the ceiling. Two speakers in the dining room, two in the kitchen and two outside on the deck. They are all wired to one location in our pantry. There will not be a tv or anything in there. What can I get to hook up to them so I can play music? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!
I AM NOT ABLE TO USE MY SONOS RIGHT NOW BECAUSE IT IS TELLING ME I NEED TO DO AN UPDATE. MY PROBLEM IS THAT I DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE INTERNET ACCESS. SO IT WILL NOT LET ME DO THE UPDATE. I CAN'T EVEN LISTEN TO THE MUSIC THAT IS ON MY PHONE WITH MY SONOS RIGHT NOW. IS THERE ANYWAY TO BYPASS THE UPDATE SO I CAN AT LEAST LISTEN TO MY MUSIC??
we were installing a Ups and this meant the power to Sonos kept dropping which I think caused it to reset. I have lost all the services and playlists. Even more strange when I try to add services it only shows last. fm and nothing else?
Brought my bridge in from the RV to update it (it doesn't get the update out there for some reason). Bridge fired up ok, but I'm not seeing it in Help, About, and therefore it won't prompt me for the update. Yes, it is plugged into the router as always, only this time I'm not seeing it in Help, About. Diagnostic is 6605297. Thank you.
I have 5 PLAY:1 speakers that I got through my employers reward program. I love them, they work great for music (I have Apple Music and Tune-In Radio)! However, budget is tight and I would like to connect a couple of these PLAY:1 speakers to my HDTV or AppleTV 3rd or 4th Gen for better sound than just my TV's built-in audio. I am not necessarily looking for surround sound and I cannot afford the PLAYBAR. I've read online of some lesser expensive solutions using a PLAY:5 or CONNECT due to them having LINE-IN ports. My question is, can you connect 2 PLAY:1 speakers to a PLAY:5 that goes directly to HDTV/AppleTV similar to the PLAYBAR's ability to do the same? Another thought was to use the CONNECT (not AMP since the PLAY:1's are powered) and connect it to the HDTV and connect the PLAY:1 speakers to the CONNECT via ethernet switch ports since the connect is wirelessly connected to SONOSnet. Again, I am not looking for surround necessarily. I just finished my basement and have
I am potentially moving to the USA in the next few months and want to take my play3's with me (I have three) I just have the units and no connecting AMPS. Will I be able to use the Play 3's over there by using an adaptor or will I need to buy new main's leads or will the change in wattage mean new units! Keen to avoid the last one if possible. Just not sure if they are made universally and then just different country adapters supplied? All advice gratefully received.
Anyone in the UK purchased an Amazon Echo and have it controlling your Sonos system or is this functionality not yet available? Also, does anyone know how the Amazon Echo will actually integrate with Sonos? Will it have to be hard wired to speakers or work just by the Alexa voice control? Many thanks for your time.
I was wondering , I've got a Sonos play 1 speaker ready for downstairs kids play room. I can't justify a play bar for kids room. I was thinking of getting a Sonos connect and running my tv audio through play 1 speaker that way? Would it work or would it not be s recommended thing to do? Look forward to anyone's help! Thanks Sam
Hi everyone, I am trying to set up a new system with the Play1 that I purchased. I have downloaded the Sonos app on an iPhone 4 with operating system 7.1.2 but when I open it only one option shows - "Connect to an existing system." I have tried deleting the app and installing it again, but get the same result. Thinking it might be the phone, I tried downloading the app on my daughter's iPad but again there is only one option showing - to connect to an existing system. Before doing this I had connected the speaker to the power source and it showed the white light then the flashing green light as described by the Sonos support pages. I have searched through the help pages but I've not found any comments on this problem. Your help, please?
My set up is a connect amp, play3 speaker, and a marantz sr5009. I want to keep my current set up (7:1 wired setup) and us the play3 as a wireless patio speaker(So that i can listen to football games). This is where i hit a snag, the volume is very low even on the high setting in the sonos app. I have the connect amp plugged into the audio out of the marantz. Is there anyone out there who has had this same problem, and have a fix for this. i feel like i have tried everything except for going out and buying a preamp. thanks ~1morewave
I have recently bought a play 5 and x4 play 1's. I was going to get an additional two play 1's BUT if i turn power off either intentionally or by accident I cannot connect to the speakers again and it seems really random when it will allow me to connect. I am thinking of taking the lot back to John Lewis and asking for a refund as its just not working. I cannot even connect my 4th play 1 and now I cannot connect to any of them except one play 1. Also I have been on hold to your customer services for 50 mins. This is really poor service. Please help me.
I bought a Playbar and connected it up no problem whatsoever... worked a treat and so easy to install. I then purchased 2 Play 1s to act as the surround speakers - but since then I've had nothing but problems. The whole system keeps dropping out from time to time saying taking me back to the original set up screen. I again today tried to set it up, the Playbar was working fine; connected the left Play1 and it was fine - but it went wrong when the right Play1 was trying too connect - it seemed to kick the whole system off and I'm back again at the original set up screen. This time though, the only speaker I can connect is 1xPlay 1 - it doesn't seem to be finding the Playbar or the other Play1. I have a BT router - the new HomeHub 6. Any help would be much appreciated as I'm now getting to the point that I'm regretting purchasing this Sonos system.
I've read various forum posts about this sort of issue, but remain a bit confused about the possibilities with my unique setup. (I'm coming from a house where I used Sonos in a conventional sense with multiple Play 3s, an AMP, and Bridge). I bought a new house with a built-in distributed sound system by Russound. It consists of a multi-zone amplifier which feeds 6 zones. Each zone has a wall-mounted controller (on/off, volume and source) with in-ceiling speakers. http://goo.gl/uJuPeJ Currently, I have an Airport Express hooked into the "CD input" on the amp and use an iPhone/iPad/Mac as the music source which is controlled with the Apple Remote iphone app. It works okay, although with this setup, different music cannot be played in different zones. So, first question -- is there a way I can use Sonos technology (?CONNECT and CONNECT:AMP) to give me multi-zone control? And second question: If the above is possible, can I enhance some of the existing zones by adding the free-st
Hi guys, I've tried to update my sonos system and it seems to have update all my speakers apart from the Sonos Bridge. I've unplugged, power cycled whilst holding the button in, but it still is coming up with a failure when trying to update. If I click use anyway, I can use as normal, it just doesn't seem to want to update. Any suggestions?
This topic has been beat to death on this forum. I am hoping this thread generates enough interest to at least peak the interest of the money makers at Sonos and hopefully this or a version of it is put into production. [b]A "Zone Player Pro" would be Ampless and have One (1) Coax and One (1) Optical Digital Outputs in a standard 17" Audio/HT component case.[/b] Forget any and all other requests, for now, such as rackmount, color, additional features, or a Price Reduction. Lets assume it will cost the same as the current Zone player $499, anything less would be a bonus. [b]Simply put, do you want and would you purchase a "Zone Player Pro"[/b].
