Existing speakers, how to use them?
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!
Will UK purchased Play3's work in the US?
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.
Sonos & Amazon Echo
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.

No option to set up new system
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?
Volume low with connect Amp
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
Integrating Sonos with an existing built-in Russound distributed sound 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
Error Code 30 : Bridge when updating to 6.4
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?
Would You Buy an Ampless w/Digital Out "Zone Player Pro"
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].
