Hi all,I’ve just bought a Boost 2nd hand. It arrived today and when I connected it up to my router the light went solid white, but the app couldn’t find it. I tried re-booting it then it occurred to me that the previous owner may not have de-registered it from their system so I factory re-set it. I’m now getting a blinking green light but the app still won't find it.I saw in another topic one of the agents suggested temporarily connecting one of the speakers to the router, then starting the “add product” process again for the Boost but this hasn't worked either.Can anyone help me get it connected please?
I’ll start by saying I DON’T use apple HomeKit with my Sonos and they aren’t even registered with the home app. I have a play 5 that always reverts to kitchen. I’ve removed it, factory reset, reinstalled and named living room. 24 hours later and it says kitchen again. I have a move that does the same thing except it always goes to dining room. sonos has no clue how to fix it. help!!!
After a lot of attempts to get good reliable playback on my system, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ll probably only solve the existing dropouts by moving to a tri-band mesh-type wifi network.So I’ve bought one of the midrange products (BT Premium Whole House Tri-band Wifi, three node), and plan to switch off my router’s wi-fi function (which is right at one end of the house and can’t easily be moved) and add the mesh network instead.The question: I currently have a Boost which is more centrally placed in the house, hardwired to the router - should I turn the Boost off once the mesh system is in place?(For completeness, the system comprises three Ports, two Symfonisk speaker pairs and one Symfonisk Frame)
Whenever someone enables Airplay Require Password on the Apple TV or in the Apple Home app every Sonos speaker in the house blocks itself from receiving an Airplay stream and asks for an AirPlay Password.Airplay works fine to Apple devices but not to Sonos devices once the password is enabled. Disabling the AirPlay password on the Apple TV or Home app has no effect on any of the Sonos speakers. They still ask for an Airplay password.The only thing which seems to fix the issue is resetting each Sonos speaker one by one.Anyone experienced this problem? (I’ve tried calling Sonos but keep getting disconnected case number 04688582 / diagnostics 726588139)
I just got my Pro-Ject’s DC, set it up as per the instructions from Sonos included in the box. But the Turntable has a grounding wire and unlike a traditional phono preamp, the Sonos Port does not have one. Do I connect it at just the turntable? Connect it at neither end? Or is the grounding perhaps taken care of via the built in pre-amp?
HiTried to connect B&O Beolab 6000 speakers to Sonos AMP. It seems to work, but the volume is loud when using as TV speakers or even Streaming Music. Even at lowest settings (aside from 0) they are loud. Tried adjusting the Volume Limit but wasn’t helpful. Any suggestions? Is it a setting issue? Or something else? And since these are Active speakers, if I turn off the TV, there is still the buzzing noise from the line - it won’t ‘shut off’ the speakers. Any feedback is appreciated, thank you!
Hi, I have two monitor audio ceiling speakers setup in my outbuilding with a Sonos Amp and Sonos sub. The system sounds awesome! I would now like to add 2 additional outdoor speakers to the system and would like to limit the volume of this set independently of the indoor speakers. Is there a speaker pair that I can buy where I can restrict the volume on the speaker itself? I just wanted the ability to have a low outdoor speaker volume.I understand Sonos doesn’t allow the independent control of different speaker pairs… thanks
One of many nights coming home wanting to continue what I’m hearing in my car. Sonos completely and totally sucks. They’re it is. I just spent 45 minutes plus trying to figure out how to take what I was just listening to on my iPhone into the home environment. No Bueno. System trying to find itself in my Wi-Fi net work… Who knows. When I fire up my TV all is good yet it fails to recognize me on my phone to listen to music and I am over it. Sonos completely and utterly sucks when it comes to just getting the job done as a music source
We’ve got several Sonos products, most of which work fine.In 2 rooms with an Amp with ceiling speakers, the music randomly ‘mutes’/ stops whilst the other Play units carry on. It’s not for long & then they join in againAlso, in other rooms with AMPs, the speakers won’t play over a certain volume for prolonged periods.Thank you in advance
An older thread was closed on this topic. I have a 3y old Sonos Amp that also died. No power despite trying multiple power cords, outlets, reset. We have 4 amps and 4 ports, and none of the others died so I do not think this is a power surge (all are connected to surge protectors). I am now a little worried, since this was the oldest amp we have-- are these other Sonos Amps destined for failure? Before I buy a replacement, I wanted to see if others are seeing these fail...
Hey I have the coax feeding my receiver with the output set to variable. I have to turn the volume up on my receiver 40db from the default to match the SL’s in the other room. Is there any fix for this? It’s a bit dangerous since if the source is switched at the receiver the volume is so high it could blow a speaker - it’s happened and the effect is total voice of God.
Hi,I hope you can help me reset my Sonos Connect.After applying power with the pause button depressed, then releasing the pause button after about 15 seconds:the led flashes white/orange forever the led does not transition to green. the network port (cable connected) flashes so the switch and network is working.I have tried other combinations many times without success.Any ideas please? ThanksRich
I’m posting this in hopes of saving someone else from the hours of frustration I’ve endured to resolve this issue.From the time I set-up my Arc + Sub + Surrounds system in July with an Asus RT-AC88U router (connected to Fios Gigabit internet) it has worked without issue. I’ve used Asus Smart Connect with all settings at default. No problems with the S2 app and no problems when I upgraded to an iPhone 12, other than the loss of Trueplay support, which continues to be a problem. (HELLO Sonos! Anyone home?)Then I recently upgraded to the RT-AX86U using same Smart Connect default settings and, initially, all seemed fine. But soon the dropped connections started. I’d reboot and the Sonos system would connect for 10-30 minutes, then lose wifi connection again. Meanwhile, all other wifi devices in my home worked just fine--the Sonos was the only problem child. I did all the troubleshooting I could, then called into Sonos support and spent almost 2 hours with a tech rep trying every potential
New to Sonos. Unable to make this combination connect and play. Have tried both Sonos Apps: “Sonos S1” & “Sonos” and am getting conflicting error information. The Onkyo website says this receiver is compatible with the Sonos Connect hardware. I have tried the various help pages with no luck. Is this interface possible? I want to play music to 3 Play:1 speakers over wi-fi.
I have a turntable connected to the Sonos AMP and the volume is very very low. At first the low volume was also accompanied by a hum, which disappeared when I connected the ground wire to one of the RCA inputs of the AMP.However the volume is still low even when I set the Source Level to Level 10 (high). I have connected other sources to the RCA input, such as the TV or a CD player and they work correctly. What other solutions can I try? Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
My connect speaker stopped working and I cannot add it back to the system. Has blinking red light and will not clear with a factory reset. Sonos can’t see the connect box anymore WTH happened. My factory reset consists on powering on the connect box while holding the pause/forward button. Amber light comes on briefly, and then straight to flashing red.
