I am looking to buy a SONOS Amp and have a couple of questions before taking the plunge…Firstly, I have a record player and CD player. Is there any way to connect both to the SONOS Amp as there is only one line-in connection? Can I get a spliter of some kind.andCan I use wireless headphone with the SONOS Amp?Thank youDMB
Received my Sub Mini yesterday. Installing it was a piece of cake. I connected it to my Playbar. Performed Trueplay. Heard no difference in TV sound, whether speak or music. Toggled Trueplay on and off. Heard a difference in sound of the Playbar, nothing from the Sub Mini. Toggled loudness on and off. Heard a difference in sound of the Playbar, nothing from the Sub Mini. Toggled Sub Mini on and off. No difference. Tried various combinations of these parameters. No difference. Tried all of this at 2 different locations; one underneath the Playbar and one abt. 3 meters away. No difference. Throughout testing bass and treble levels at zero.Then connected it to my 2 grouped Play:1's. Performed Trueplay. Once again: no difference in sound. Performed Trueplay. No difference. Toggled Trueplay on and off. Heard a difference in sound of the Play:1's, nothing from the Sub Mini. Toggled loudness on and off. Heard a difference in sound of the Play:1's, nothing from the Sub Mini. Toggled Sub Mini o
I recently upgraded my S1 Sonos system to S2 (removing two original Play:5 speakers, and adding a half dozen Ikea Symfonisk bookshelf speakers). Everything was, and still is, connected to SonosNet through a Boost wired to my router that I’ve had for some time. Everything works fine after upgrading the app and adding the new speakers, and all is still on SonosNet. To help ensure extended range and prevent dropouts, I purchased a second Boost last week to add wirelessly halfway through the house. However, I cannot get it set up. I plug it in, choose Settings: System: Add Product in the S2 app for Android, make sure Bluetooth is on on my phone, and then wait for the Boost light to turn from white to flashing green (set up) before I press the Bluetooth button on the Boost to make it change to flashing orange (connecting). The S2 app on my phone never recognizes it as it scans for products to add. I’ve tried this multiple times. The original wired boost continues to work (Sonos System Info
Hii know there have been some posts and discussions about connecting B&O speakers to TV via Sonos Port. I am looking for a simpler just strictly connecting Port to B&O Beolab 6000 speakers. And I can stream music from my phone to play on Port and my existing Arc. what cables do I need and what’s the easiest/simplest setup? TIA!
Hello. I have been having an issue with my Connect:Amp for awhile now. Every time I turn up the volume to about 65% it mutes and a white flashes on the amp. I have it wired to two pairs of Yamaha outdoor speakers with 130 watt peak power handling. One pair is located outside at my patio and the other pair is installed in my garage. To independently control the volume of the two locations I installed a Russound impedance matching volume control for each pair of speakers. I am thinking that the volume controls are what is causing the issue but not sure how to determine that for sure. Any help is appreciated.
After exhaustive troubleshooting, I’ve narrowed the issue down to the 3.5mm Line Out from my Optoma UHZ50 being the culprit. Setup: Optoma UHZ50 Projector sending audio to Sonos Amp via 3.5mm “Audio Out”. The wire is one-sided on the UHZ50 side, then has a red and black end which plug into my Sonos Amp. My Amp powers to Definitive Tech DI-8R Ceiling Speakers. The issue: One of the two speakers is very low, static, and simply sounds bad. I tried troubleshooting everything - new speaker wire, different banana plugs, even swapped the speaker (I have 4 and 2 are in box) and even tried a different Sonos Amp (I have 2, one is still in box). Nothing fixed the issue, so the only thing left to try was replacing the 3.5mm cable, so I went ahead and swapped that (I also have two of those) and the issue persists, but if I flip the Red / Black the opposite speaker has the problem. Basically the “Left” speaker out on the Amp is the problem when I have the “Red input in the red plug and the black i
We have a surround system in the living room comprising a Playbar, 2x Play:5s and a Sub. I realise that Line In is disabled on the Fives in this mode. However, if I buy an additional Play:Five to hook up to a turntable via its own Line In, can I still add it as a separate Room, and therefore broadcast to other speakers throughout the house? And if so, would either generation Five work?I don’t really want to go to the expense of adding a Port or Amp, but any other/better suggestions welcome! Thanks in advance (Please be kind to a newbie :-)
Hello, I have a client with two 70v in each of their restrooms that are run in series. We originally planned on using the Sonos speakers but were unaware of what’s currently there. Am I able to power 4 QSC AD-C6T speakers as shown below? Thank you in advance! I’m guessing that may run into issues with the fact that the output is stereo and that a Port is a better option but was hoping to not have to change our order. Thank you!
Hi team,I have an S1 system with a Sonos Bridge and 5 amplifiers connected to my own ceiling speakers. I am thinking of upgrading to S2. There does not appear to be a S2 bridge type of component on offer. What is the best S2 configuration to drive the exisiting speaker sets please? Am I to assume that each of the new S2 amps is also sort of a “bridge”? Do you still support a Sonos specific wireless network or do you rely on my own WiFi? Thank you very much for your support Dimitrios
I have a vintage stereo system with RCA jacks for input and output. A Yamaha CR 1020 receiver connected to a pair of JBL Century 100 speakers is what I want to hook up to the Sonos Port or other music streamer. I do not wish to upgrade any of my components, I have a Marantz 2270 still in the box as a backup. And the speakers work fine for my 68 old ears.I plan on using the RCA output of the Sonos Port to stream music to my current stereo system and using the Sonos Port RCA inputs from my system to power other Sonos speakers in other rooms of my home. I have the Sonos Port connected to my Stereo now and it sounds as good as my CD player and turntable.My question is what is the kHz and bitrate output to the RCA outputs on the Sonos Port? I think the digital outputs on the Sonos Port are 24-bit/44.1kHz. Does anybody know if the RCA outputs are the same?

I’m ignorant when it comes to sound and may have purchased the wrong thing. I have a Fluance turn table that does not have a built in preamp. I also have a Yamaha receiver is used to use to play it with in wired non-Sonos speakers. I now have two Sonos Ones I’d like to use for the turntable. Do I have the right equipment? I’ve tried to search for the right cord configuration and I cannot get it to work. Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Thanks!the back of the Yamaha is as follows.
So I’ve just now started investing in Sonos but I have this home surround I want to be able to use with sonos multiroom and also maybe use as tv Audio and perhaps connect more sonos speakers to work with it … but mainly connect to sonos multiroom so I can listen to music with all my other sonos devices. What do I do? And also can I add sonos speakers to my tv setup?
Just started with Apple GarageBand music production software. Bummed to learn that I can’t use my Submini and pair One SLs as my “studio speakers” because of Airplay latency. If I connected the Mac Studio via HDMI to Sonos Amp to then play through to the Submini/pair One SLs, would that solve the delay problem? I’m thinking it would not, because even from the Sonos Amp, I’m then dealing with “streaming” via wifi and I’ll have the same delay.Any ideas? Thanks!
Bonjour, Je possède un ensemble de composants fonctionnant sous SONOS S1, donc une télécommande CR200 qui depuis 2 semaines ne semble plus charger la batterie, j’ai acheté une batterie compatible neuve pour CR200 et cette nouvelle batterie ne charge pas non plus sur le socle de charge du CR200 J’ai tout débranché , nettoyé les contacteur , remis l’ancienne batterie , puis la nouvelle, il y a un voyant lumineux orange ou rouge qui clignote en haut à gauche du CR200 , parfois j’ai accès à la CR200 pendant quelques minutes ou heures, parfois ça ne charge pas, que ce soit avec l’ancienne batterie sonos d’origine, ou la nouvelle batterie. Merci de votre aide, je trouve cette remote CR200 toujours très pratique et fonctionnelle et qui me permet d’éviter d’allumer un téléphone, ordinateur ou tablette à chaque fois que je veux changer de musiques ou de volume de son. AngeMod Edit: Google Translate- Hello, I have a set of components running SONOS S1, so a CR200 remote control which for 2 week
With the rising energy prices Sonos idle (standby) power consumption is getting more and more costly. With 3 Amp’s and a Play 5 I’m at 22,5 Watts or 197 kWh a year. At the October 2022 energy price in Holland this accounts to about € 149/Year or about € 12/Month. I'm seriously considering switching to Bluesound who seem to be able to build devices with seriously less idle power consumption. Please Sonos, figure out a way to solve this long standing issue.
S1 controller unable to add linkstation NAS with error: Reason: The Computer "SONOSZP80_1TB" cannot be found

This has now been fixed and I'm once again able to see my ancient 2010 Buffalo Linkstation Live (LS-CHL-V2 series) NAS. Advanced sharing settings and SMB settings under windows features have all been checked by Sonos and all look fine and I’ve also posted screen grabs below. When I try and add my NAS share in the S1 Controller I get the following error:S1 -> Manage tab -> Music Library Settings -> Add -> Networked device -> Browse and select NAS and share from Network tab -> OK -&g
