I just got myself a new Sub (gen 3) and I use it with 2 x Play:3 paired as stereo. Wow! What a difference the Sub makes!I am now considering to replace the two Play:3 with two new Sonos Five (gen 2).Question is: Is it worth the investment? Will two Sonos Five instead of Play:3 significantly improve the experience?
I have mentioned this in someone else’s post but thought this should be a new post/subject.Since updating the software to 13.4.1 both Connects and Connect Amps are flashing red instead of green after a factory reset.They all do reconnect to the system though.Also when muting the light turns red but I have seen that Sonos are aware of this.Diagnostics number: 554887171
Hi - I am setting up an new Sonos AMP to 4 speakers. First 2 speakers: excellent sound.Third speaker: still excellent sound.Fourth speaker: I experienced a severe loss of quality of one of the channels and thus speakers. Monaco SPE-82/HQ 100 watt 8 Ohm speakers.2 speakers on 1 channel thus 4 on 2 channels. Any explanation? Ideally anybody a fix?
Hello, I have lost the connection to my sonos connect via the controller software.When i launch a network scan, I can see it has an IP-address. I have resetted the controller and I tried to re-add it, It is detected, but it won’t proceed to the end of the process.It ‘s probably a software issue, is there any possibility or hidden option to hard reset it?thx!
What's up folks?I have an existing Sonos system throughout my home. A couple Play:5s and few Sonos Ones throughout. About a year ago I decided to build a vintage HiFi system. I want to integrate the two systems, so I'm considering picking up a Port. Anyway, long story short, all the line level inputs on my preamp are currently being used. I want to upgrade my cd player and I'm considering a dedicated transport only player (no on board DAC). My question is, since I only have one AUX input, can I connect the Port to my AUX input on my preamp then connect a transport only CD player to the Port. Effectively killing two birds with one stone. Adding streaming to my HiFi system while simultaneously using the port as a DAC for the CD transport? Will this work?Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks for your time,Kyle
Hello everyone,I’m new to the Sonos ecosystem. I’m potentially going to work with clients with Sonos systems. My job is to “listen” to what they play in order to make reports of what’s been listened. For this I need an output from the speakers to connect to our hardware, which has a minijack input.If I’m not mistaken there’s no outputs available in any of the Sonos speakers, and it seems like the only way would be to purchase a Port and manage all connectivity from there, is that right? Is there any other option to catch the stream? Maybe via IP, bluetooth? I don’t need the best quality for this, and the Port seems like an overkill, pretty expensive solution.Thanks a lot!
I'm looking at getting a Port-compatible cd player to integrate our vast cd collection with our Sonos system. Setting it up looks easy and straightforward, except for one thing: how do I control cd volume other than through the Sonos app? Ideally, the remote controlling cd playback would also control the volume. It's going to be playing almost exclusively over the Beam 2. which already supports my tv remote volume control. So is there a way to get the Beam to receive signals from a 2nd remote?
I have seen a couple of questions regarding the LED on the Sonos Amp - but I am confused …The Amp appears to be permanently on, which, in this day and age of power crises, seems a little environmentally irresponsible. The unit remains quite warm to the touch, indicating power consumption even if the unit is not amplifying or playing anything. If the central sensor is touched, the LED flashes and the unit then becomes cooler. So what is the sensor doing in this case?What exactly is the point of the LED? It doesn’t seem to indicate anything … line in status, power status , anything … The only use is perhaps to indicate where the touch sensor is in a pitch black room?It would be useful if there was a different colour for an active line-in signal or perhaps if the power amps were in standby mode ...I presume the only way to power it down is to pull the power lead or switch off at the wall?
Hello to All,I am new to this Forum and would appreciate an expert input! ;-)My Sonos sub bass is sounding In & out of Sync; as if the “bass” is delayed; few songs sound good but then the sub goes out of sync. So it is an intermittent issue. PS: this sub is wired to the home network as it is far away from the Sonos Amp. Any suggestions? Thanks!
I know there are a lot of other threads on this topic, but I seem to be right 'on the line' where it comes to determining the generation of amp I am looking at.I know gen1 amps have the mute button up until 2013.2013 to 2015 gen1 had the play/pause button.Sometime 2015 Gen2 came out.My question is, what is the cut in date for gen2? I am interested in buying a used Amp with a 1508 (August 2015) serial number. Is this far enough in 2015 to be a Gen 2?? Or could it still be a late production Gen 1?
The Sonos system in my house includes a Beam connected to a TV that also has component A/V inputs. If I want to have a turntable in that same room, could I have that audio wired to the Sonos system through those TV audio inputs, and switch the source to the beam with the TV remote as if it’s a video device? If so, I assume an older turntable would require some kind of pre-amp, but could a player with built-in amp go direct?I realize it’s not optimal but I’m curious if it can theoretically work.
i haven’t found a solution anywhere on the support site so i’ll ask here. i replaced a sonos beam gen 2, sonos sub and sonos amp connected to passive rears for a sonos amp and two definitive 8060STs which have the subwoofers built in. they are connected hdmi to a roku tv.when setting the tv to stereo output the voice are not clear coming from the speakers, with them coming out as stereo from the sonos amp. when the tv is set to play dolby, the sonos amp plays dolby and the voice are clear.my question is - is the recommendation to use stereo or dolby as the audio output for the sonos amp from the roku tv? by setting it to dolby, is it now creating a phantom center channel which is making the dialogue better? is setting it to dolby without the rears making me lose out on other sounds during a movie?appreciate the help here. i don’t want to go back to a receiver but need to make the sonos amp and my speakers have clear vocal dialogue.
Hello all -- I’ve tried reading through these threads but my head is spinning! I am hoping to hook-up my Crosley turntable (specs here) to my pair of old Play:1 speakers. The specs of my TT don’t say much, but it gets mentioned on a few different websites that it has a ‘built in amp’ though nobody elaborates more than that. I do not have any type of phono vs. line-in switch on the back, but I do have 2 RCA jacks as well as 2 speakerwire ports (sorry, not sure what else to call those...)Looking for the simplest (and maybe also cheapest) way to get this all in sync. Do I need a pre-amp, can anyone tell? Which new or discontinued Sonos product would you recommend as my easiest path here? Any thoughts appreciated, thanks!
Hi Sonos team,This has been requested before, but after extensive reading in the fora I could not find a solution or an answer from Sonos about prioritisation of this issue.Can you please provide an option to disable audio-delay (latency) when a line-in device is used on a single Sonos speaker setup?In an older conversation all kind of ideas were proposed by the community. There were a couple of things people agreed on:Many people are bothered that a minimal 75 ms latency is enforced. And they would be very happy if Sonos could give an option to disable the 70ms latency. Two use-cases where people encounter the latency-problem: Creative music production (keyboard, dj-mixer) Audio video where the Sonos is used for audio and a laptop/television as screen (for movie watching or video calls). In a setup with 1 Sonos speaker and a line-in device as audio-source, the 70ms latency seems artificial and not dictated by technical limitations (i.e. buffering with multiple wireless Sonos speaker
just set up the Sonos 5 speaker. Our existing turntable and Optimus amp work just fine on our old speaker. We wanted to upgrade to the Sonos 5… but when hooked up, there is a terrible low hum that gets louder with volume increase and is persistent when the record is finished or in-between songs when there is no sound. the grounding wire is fine and like I say, does NOT have the buzz with the older speakers. So what are we doing wrong? Or is our system no compatible with the Sonos 5? We do NOT get the buzz with any of the other features, meaning the streaming music, etc. Only when using the record player. If we can’t fix I guess we just go back to the old speakers because that hum is giving us a headache.
I’ve just purchased a port (upgrade to a connect) 3 weeks ago. Upgraded to S2. So I now have an S2 system with the port and S1 system with the connect. I continue to find the sound from the connect to be clearer than the port using Qubuz? I would have thought the port, with its improved operating system would have added more clarity, separation, etc.. Any thoughts? thanks..
