This question probably has already been answered but can not find a specific answer to it. Can or will there be Sonos integration with Echo Dot using a Sonos CONNECT wireless streamer without using line in ( voice control through Alexa) I am not referring to Play speakers but Sonos Connect Device. Thanks
There have been questions about the high frequency response of the Sonos Amp. User [b]hodgeal[/b] posted a very interesting plot showing the frequency response of the Sonos Amp using the software REW. It didn't show excessive high frequencies in that single test. I had the opportunity to compare the Sonos amp to my Peachtree amp using the same software (which is very useful and easy to use - thanks hodgeal), and this provides a comparative test of the Sonos Amp frequency response. The Peachtree Nova 125 SE amp is well-respected in the audio community. It is a class D digital amp, same as the Sonos Amp, but as far as I can tell uses different chips. The test uses Duntech Marquis speakers and a Studio Projects C1 microphone. The mic is setup on-axis at a distance of 120cm, which is pretty standard. But none of the details should matter because this is a comparison under identical conditions - I simply swapped amps and repeated the test. And the results? [img]9ff086c4-1880-4d
this is the second time in the same week I get the message sorry we can't connect to sonos. The first time I had to pull the plug on my router to sort it the second time it has not worked also i dont want to keep unplugging my router every week any thoughts.I have not changed anything only have a 1 and a 3 connected wirelessly.
First of I want to say that I have been using Sonos products since 2009. Besides Sonos, I had a lot of gear but none of it could match Sonos's ease of use and sound quality (for the price). I have to come clean and say that I am used to using Sonos everywhere and I love it. As an audiophile, I was looking to replace my aging Sonos Connect with Port and realized from all the reviews that it does not have a better digital output. This was a show stopper for me and it is a show stopper for all audiophiles out there. You are missing a very important niche of the market. It is taken by Raspberry Pie implementations and Bluesound and Aurelia, not because they have better software or support for services, but because they have a better digital output. That is it. Nothing else. Everyone I have talked to said they like Sonos but the digital output is jittery. I have tried a lot of solutions and even they sound better than Connect over coax they are all not easy to use, do not have support for t
I use Sonos connect Amps to supply music to wired speakers everywhere in my home except the basement. I have a home stereo / theatre in the basement that I’d like to play Sonos through occasionally. Can this be accomplished using Chrome Cast audio instead of a Sonos connect? The amp for the basement stereo is a Pioneer Elite VSX-60.
Hi all - running across a strange issue. I have a Sonos Beam connected to my TV. I have several other devices connected that all output audio without issue (cable box, PS4, etc). However, when I dock my Nintendo Switch to play on my TV, I simply get no audio through the Beam. Interestingly, my TV also changes to my Beam's input whenever I connect the Switch. When I switch back to the Switch's input, I have video but no audio. Any ideas why this might be happening? Thank you!
Hi I have been given 3 x zp120's 1 x zp90,1 x br100 and a WD my cloud (no speakers though as they were in the ceiling when my friend sold his house, he's moved in with a music system set up already) Appolagies in advance for my ignorance but can I incorporate these into a surround sound or if that's not possible what's the best way to use these to their full potential? My friend had them installed by a company so isn't much help!!!
I have 4 Yamaha NS-IW360C ceiling speakers with an impedance of 6 ohms each. [img]c600ba7b-a9a7-4588-96ea-a4cfd8356d7e.png[/img] How can I connect them to the SONOS Connect AMP to have two stereo zones? (Example: kitchen and dining room) No need to activate or deactivate any of the zones, they can always sound at the same time. Should I use a speaker selector? Do you recommend any? I also have a Yamaha YST-FSW150BL Advanced YST II Down-Firing Active Subwoofer, can I use this subwoofer with the SONOS Connect AMP? Thank you very much for your help.
For listening to music I use (and love) Apple Play. But I also would like to have my computer audio output be able to play through Sonos. Do I need Connect:amp for this? In other words: if I would connect my Apple audio out to the audio in of the Connect:amp will it play back wireless through my Sonos speakers?
I have a Sonos Amp, and a Definitive Tech Sub Pro 800 that has both the mono RCA LFE option (What is connected now) and also has the option to connect via high level input. Real Subwoofers have this too. Can this work with the Sonos Amp? I searched but did not find an answer. So basically I’d connect my Def Tech sub to the left and right speaker channels of the amp, and then I would connect my 2 front speakers to the back of the sub. Will that work or do I have to keep using the LFE? It’s for music, so I figured using the High Level input may sound better as the sub would get the same signal as the speakers, right? Or am I mistaken? Thanks!
I'm a little surprised pre-orders opened up and nobody is taking about it :-) Delivery by Dec 3rd according to Sonos which is awesome. I'm currently using a Beam and two Sonos Ones for rears and two stereo HomePods for music in the living room and bedroom as well as smart speakers for Homekit etc. I was planning on buying a Sonos sub tomorrow since they will be on sale for $599. I'm not sure if I will do that now since I am getting the Amp so soon and can use any sub so there seems to be little advantage to the Sonos sub. The Elacs are on sale right now so I could get tower speakers and sub from them for $669 from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B4WFWZF/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DL7XWBZ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I will continue to use the Sonos Ones as rears. Any thoughts on any of that? Any advantage to buying a Sonos sub for the app? I can't think of one. What are other peoples pla
I just posted this in a Harmony support forum as well, but it is probably as likely to be addressed by Sonos as it is as by Harmony. . . maybe more likely? ------------- I like the Harmony hub remotes a lot. They have simplified the universal remote problem in several rooms in my house. So much so that I am now actively using two Harmony Hub Ultimates and one Harmony Hub, one each in 3 different rooms in my house. I use multiple audio input sources, and have Sonos eqpt in 5 rooms of my house. Two of these are the Sonos:Connect modules, so that I can send audio to and from multiple sources using my existing AV amps and speakers. The Sonos:Connect devices send the audio using 'Line-In' (this is Sonos' labeling/nomenclature). To send audio from my office to my den, I select the source as (office Sonos:Connect - Line-In) on the Den unit. I have to do this using the Sonos controller. . . I have not found any way to use the Harmony remote to select that as a source. It would be
Right now I'm just using speaker wire to include my subwoofer in my Connect Amp setup. I go from the Connect Amp, loop thru the subwoofer and then to my speakers. But I would like to take advantage of the subwoofer out connection on the Connect Amp. Do I just go RCA from the connect amp to the LINE in on the subwoofer? No speaker cable involved? Just go to the Left LINE in? I have an Acoustic Research S112PS. Thanks for your help. - Arnie
Hi everybody :) Question#1: I need help to pick the right speaker set.. I buiding a new extension (50 m2/550 ft2) to my house and I'm planning to use 2 SONOS Connect:Amp (probably going to switch those for 1 or 2 SONOS Amp later) for 2 pair of in-ceiling speakers to create 2 listening zones. What will be the best speaker set for me? BOSE Virutally Invisible 791 or the new speakers from SONOS/Sonance? I'm going to pair the Connect:Amp with a Sub for a richer sound :) Or do you recommend a different type of speakers? Question#2: I'm considering connect the Connect:Amp to a TV, and I've heard of some kind of delay. Is this a issue? If I switch the Connect:Amp that will be connected to a TV with a Sonos Amp instead, and use the 2nd Connect:Amp for a listening zone that's about 5 meters from the TV - and then connect those 2 (Connect:Amp and the new Amp): Will there be delay between the 2 zones?
We have pre-installed Sonos system; Connect.Amp, Launch pad and speakers in the ceiling. In order for a newly purchased TV to get connected to Sonos system, which connection needs to be purchased? An optical cord mentioned by a retailer cannot be connected to any on Sonos side (Connect Amp is installed far away from the TV room). We wish to do without a sound bar purchase.
Recently moved into an existing home that has Klipsch in-ceilling speakers in five rooms + patio. There is a pair in each room along with a local volume control. The speaker runs are all tied to a common right now (one source only). I currently have them hooked up to Zone 2 on a Yamaha RX-V683. While the Yamaha drives the speakers OK, I find it clumsy to use even with the app. I also don't think Yamaha supports Apple Music (at least I haven't figured out how) which we enjoy. So, I"m thinking of either going with a CONNECT-AMP OR CONNECT for the in-ceiling speakers. The Yamaha will still drive a 5.1 set up that was also here with the house for TV viewing. Given the Yamaha drives the ceiling speakers with no problem, it seems like the CONNECT-AMP will too given the output? Like to get feedback on that though. I should add, while it would be amazing to have each speaker pair on their own zone - just not practical buying six CONNECT-AMP's. Also, could I do this cheaper using a CONNEC
Ok, I have waited awhile to post this to isolate the problem and I am pretty sure that its the Soundbar causing the issue. Problem: TV turns on by itself. Seems to be more prevalent when the Soundbar is grouped with other speakers - might be only when its grouped. Things I have done to isolate the problem: - in the TV, turned off HDMI control to the TV - unplug all HDMI cables to the TV - removed remote controls from the living room. - covered the IR port on the TV with cardboard - unplugged the Soundbar but left the TV, Roku, Blu-ray plugged in and the HDMI cables connected. Other facts: - TV is an older Toshiba LCD - 40RV52U - Roku 3.0 is hooked up - A Toshiba Blu-ray player is attached - Over the air Antennae. - Sound bar is on its back *with its Rubber feet/mounting holes" facing down and the power/optical facing towards the TV and directly in front of the IR Port on the TV. - see pics - TV is remote is a Universal URC-R50 remote I trained to operate the TV.
