Hello just purchased a epson 4040 pro series projector.i currently have sonance outdoor satellite speakers throughout the yard paired with Sonos amp and Sonos Hub. I also bought a denon audio receiver, a hdmi switcher, Apple TV. The projector is mounted outside in a weatherproof enclosure. The screen is motorized and sits on the group and it sealed in a weatherproof box that has to be opened before using remote to control screen. my question is it possible- hdmi from projector to hdmi switcher,hdmi from switcher to audio reciever. Audio out from Sonos port to audio in on reciever. To use the sonance outdoor speakers for the projector.then to also be able to use the speaker to watch live tv.
Trying to decide on 3 different Sonance speakers from Best Buy for our deck. I’ve looked at the specs but I can’t decide what I need. They range from $441, $569, to $879. The less expensive ones have good reviews. Do I really need the $879 for good quality sound with a bunch of people. How much difference to the ear is there?
Hello, I have a small issue. We have 3 amps on our system that should control 3 different areas with their own speakers.When we first set up the system the ‘Gym’ amp and speakers were on the app. However after we had some internet issues the ‘Gym’ amp/speakers now just copy whatever is being played on the ‘Reception’ amp/speakers. But as I said, the ‘Gym’ used to be it’s own individual area. It’s as if the ‘Reception’ amp now controls the speakers in the reception and the gym. But the gym should be controllable through it’s own amp. They are not ‘tied’ together (when you get 2 or more amps to play the same), it’s just the the gym has completely gone from the app, but as I said is till playing music!Any suggestions would be very appreciated!Cheers A
Hi there,I have an amp that is connected to 3 pairs of Sonos Sonance ceiling speakers in my living room. Can I connect a Sonos turntable to that same amp? I’d like to be able to play records over the living room speakers.Thanks,Derrek
Hi all, My setup consists of two Symfonisk speakers, stereo paired, and a Sonos Port. The Port has a line in from a Behringer sound card. The card is fed by a Raspberry PI and also has an analog line-in signal from the TV.I have set the Port to Autoplay line-in. When I start a film on Netflix (Chromecast connected to TV), the port is activated and sound comes up within two seconds through the Symfonisk speakers, which is good enough.However, if there’s a silent passage in the film, sound gets deactivated and it may take 5 seconds to activate again when signal is detected. Looks like Autoplay gets interrupted after a couple of seconds with no sound. Is there a way to prevent this from happening, other than manually switching input via the Sonos app?
I have Sonos Connect connected to Sherbourn amp that powers about 14 speakers in my house. Normally when I start music in Sonos app and stream music Sherbourn amp turns on music starts. This morning I turn on music in app, it shows bars indicating music but I don’t get music. The Sherbourn amp doesn’t automatically kick on. I tried turn amp on manually, nothing. Any thoughts?
Plan to power my B&W LM 1’s with my Connect 1 amp. Will use my wonderful Denon DCD 1560 and, I hope,Qobuz. I don’t want to add on to the Sonos hookup that runs elsewhere. Two question: the office room for this is going to need its own router, and the Connect has lost its power chord. (It couldn’t be me.) Would welcome suggestions and a power cord for sale.
Hello All,I’ve a Connect running happily for a few years, but over the past week or so, it has been dropping off the Sonos network. If I reboot it it works for a while and then drops off again, in at most, a day. This Connect is wireless. The rest of my setup is perfectly fine. Any ideas?Thanks,Ian
Sharing what worked for me, as the documentation in the original Zoneplayer ZP100 manual, online, and even in the Sonos S1 app could be MORE detailed and explicit about button presses, here is what worked for me when adding my old ZP100 to my existing sonos network. I already have another ZP100 connected and am using SonosS1 app on mobile and on my computer. Firstly, be sure to use the Sonos S1 app on your phone, as the other sonos controller app isnt backwards compatible to the ZP100 and other ‘old’ amps and zone players ( on a separate but related topic if you have the newer app and a system mixing old and new - you can either run 2 separate sonos networks, or down grade your newer devices as per instructions here https://support.sonos.com/en-au/article/set-up-separate-s1-and-s2-sonos-systems) . this ZP100 had been connected to my previous network, but as this one has a new name and probably lots of updates on it, It needed a ‘factory reset’. (the old way to set the zp100 to pairin
Hello. I’m more than happy to airplay from Apple Music to my Sonos speakers but I have a question for you. I’ve been taking a look to Cambridge audio cxn v2 and the new Evo unit (this one is a bit redundant as it comes with an internal amplifier). The idea is to haga a device that I can plug an hdd unit with flac music and connect it to the Sonos speaker. As an aside, it also provides a display where you can see the cover art, title etc. which is also neat. Questions are: can the Cambridge audio be connected to Sonos via wifi or only via line in? are there other solutions that provide a display and the capability of playing hdd files?thanks !
Hi All - I am wondering what amplifier people use for Sonos Connect products. I have been using Audiosource amps with Behringer EQs for in-wall JBL speakers. The system sounds OK but it’s a lot of components, IMO. I’m curiuos what others have been doing.Also, I am getting a hiss in one of my systems that I have to troubleshoot and that’s adding to my interest in a more robust, reliable set up. Looking forward to hearing backDave
I have a Sonos Port to which I have connected a pair of analog speakers via an amplifier. I would like to add an additional pair of analog speakers, along with an analog sub, to this system (also via a separate amplifier) to play in an entirely different part of my house.Is this possible? If so, what would the setup look like? My existing Sonos Port has only a single analog output.
Hello,I just bought a new house that has in-wall speakers and a mount for a TV, but nothing else and I am new to Sonos. I’m looking for some advice on how to set up a home theater system.Here is the setup: there are a total of 8 in-wall speakers throughout the house that are all wired to one spot in a mechanical closet. The first 2 speakers flank a fireplace in the center of the living room, and the TV mount is off to the right side (i.e., not centered on the main 2 speakers). The TV mount is wired with power, HDMI, and ethernet. There are 2 more speakers behind the living room in the kitchen, which is open to the living room (so could be used a rears). There are 2 more speakers in an elevated loft space to the left of the living room which is open to the living room, so could be used with the TV theater setup but might throw the acoustics off since they are on the left and there is not a matching pair on the right. There are also 2 more speakers in a separate bedroom.One option I was
