Bonjour,Je viens de faire l'acquisition d'un sonos zp90 pour pourvoir diffuser le son de mon système vidéo sur mes enceintes play:1.Je rencontre un problème frustrant, je ne detect pas le zp90 malgré une réinitialisation au paramètres d'usine. Savez-vous si ce matériel est complètement obsolète et si non quel application utiliser (s1 ou s2) et si il y a une raison précise à mon problème peut-être que je ne fais pas les choses bien.Merci d'avance.
Hi,just purchased era 300 in order to replace SL one mounted on the wall.since I would like to keep the same position I would like to get feedback on the below wall location:Distance from the floor ~2 metersDistance from the ceiling ~1 metersDistance between both era ~3 meters I understand that the best way is to mount them in upside down.Any feedback if this should be ok? Any concern I should take in account?thanks in advance,
I recently moved into a house which is prewired with 10 speakers throughout 6 different rooms of the house. The speakers are wired with 16 AWG stranded conductors (sometimes two conductors braided together). In one room, I have 2 speakers that accompany a tv so would be good to somehow put those speakers on the tv output (optical cable or hdmi) I’d like to have the ability to play music to the 6 different area’s independently and control with a smart speaker or my phone. Can someone give me some ideas on what equipment is needed to accomplish this? The Sonos amp seems to be 1 zone, figured there must be something with multiple channels. I currently use Amazon prime music so curious if the Sonos software and hardware can interface with that. Thanks.
Hi I have 4 Connect Amps that have been working fine for some years but just recently they are dropping the Audio for a few seconds which is very annoying. I have spoken to Sonos Support on a few occasions and done everything they have suggested to fix this which they say is WiFi Interference such as switching channels etc but still have problems. This happens on any music source but I have noticed when the speakers go silent the sound levels are still going up and down on the app as if its playing the audio in other words not muted, not sure if this helps identify the problem. I am getting to the point now where soon these will be removed as they just aren't worth the hassle. I have seen a few threads where people have had the same problem but the only answers I have seen are contact Sonos Support.Has anyone had this problem and got a viable solution??????Some posts suggest an issue with S2 being introduced so does anyone know if this is a problem??
Hi Sonos Timelords. I have a great Sonos system. Connect:amp series 2. player sub mini and two architectural speakers hard wired to the connect:amp. Does everything as promised. I have a massive vinyl collection and purchased Project turntable,Project e pre-amp and Port. Run the TT and CD player through Port as line-in. CD. fidelity is perfect, TT so distorted as to be unlistenable. I lie to vinyl experience. Should I seperate the analogy and digital systems completely or is there something I am missing. I note the TT-Port issue is common. Please help before I have a stroke.
Is there a way to connect wireless headphones to a Sonos system? I have a Sonos Port, a number of Sonos speakers, only one of which has Bluetooth capability (Sonos Move). I recently purchased a Bluetooth transmitter (Avantree Oasis Plus) hoping i could connect it to the Sonos Port, pair my headphones to the transmitter, effectively turning my headphones into speakers. Thanks
I have two somance speakers connected to a Sonos AMP. The AMP is also connected to my TV. Occasionally, the volume drops where I don’t hear anything until I raise volume to 85+. It happens using th television or jus streaming music. I have several other systems and this only happens in one room. Any thoughts?
I’m doing a small audio project for a local gym. They have all of the equipment they need to play music during their workouts. The way they have it set up to play is they have a Sonos Connect connected directly to a speaker system. They use their Samsung Galaxy Android tablet to control the music to play using the Sonos app. The Sonos Connect is wired to the router that provides access to the internet for them. They use either Spotify or Apple Music as the source of the music.When the internet goes down or gets spotty, they can’t play music and if that happens during a workout, it’s a big problem. What I’m planning to suggest to them is that we get some sort of local source of music they can use as a backup. Something like an external drive that can be connected to the Sonos Connect directly with some MP3s on it. Of course they wouldn’t have a big variety of music on their backup system and they’d have to buy the music that goes there, which are two downsides.Is this a good (or maybe t
Hopefully other Telus Wifi users will find this post helpful and maybe share my pain. Telus upgraded my router to the white Arcadyan router that looks like a trashcan. The router’s performance is good, but Sonos is unstable, especially when trying to Airplay content to the speakers. I understood that Sonos speakers use the 2.4GHz to play media content, but they also use the 5GHz band for operational tasks (inter-speaker communications). When logged into my router’s management GUI I can see the speakers are connected to my Wifi network. However, what I didn’t realize, and thankfully what a Sonos support call confirmed, was that the speakers were locked to the 5GHz network. When I reconnected my speakers to the new Telus network they initially connected to the network on the 5GHz band. The Arcadyan router broadcasts the same network name for both frequency bands, and it decides which device is assigned to which network band (2.4 or 5GHz). You can turn off specific bands in the admin inte
Seems pretty simple but I’m not finding the answer.I have a Sonos Amp(firmware current), I have 4 external speakers connected to it and work just fine. I want to add the an outdoor sub. I have a OSD Forza 10 10" Outdoor Subwoofer with 300W of Power and High-Impact Molded Enclosure, IP66-rated Weather-Resistant. I;m pretty certain the SONOS AMP doesn’t power a sub, I will need an external amp, so I purchased a Nobsound G2 PRO Hi-Fi 300W Subwoofer Power Amplifier Mono Channel Class D SUB Audio Amp. I used an RCA Y cable from the SONOS Amp to the Nobsound, but no Sub output. Any suggestions other than buying an $800 sonos sub? I want this one, it is outdoor and works great off my Onkyo stereo. Sad this is so complicated with Sonos.
I recently purchased a new Amp and wired speakers and ethernet wired to my network hub in the house. My TV as well as other electronics are also attached to this network hub. My TV is nowhere near this new AMP, so an HDMI connection is not practical. Occasionally it would be nice to broadcast the sound from the TV to speakers in other rooms. Since everything is network connected (ethernet), is there a way to get TV sound from these speakers? thx
We are wiring a new home with Sonos ceiling speakers in each room powered by Sonos Amps. We would like to have in the wall rotary volume knobs to control the volume for each Room/Amp. We have used Sonos products since Gen 1, this is our first whole home speaker setup and my wife prefers to control the volume from a wall switch than going to the app each time. Thanks For Your Help & Have Great Day !
I am building a new home. In our great room we will have a frame TV, sonos amp and 6 architectural in ceiling speakers. 2 of the speakers will be in the kitchen and I want to be able to control the volume of the kitchen speakers separately from the other 4. Sonos says that typically 4 speakers are used per amp but if you use Sonos Architectural speakers (8 ohms) u can use 6, but then they need to be wired in parallel. My question is: can I use a simple wall-mounted volume control dial to control the volume of the two kitchen speakers?
Hi,It was my wife’s bday yesterday and I she wanted a record player system. So I brought the Pro-Ject T1 Phono SB Turntable2 Room set with Era 100Sonos Line in AdapterI spent yesterday evening setting the system up while my wife excitedly went to get a number of albums from the record store. I think I spent just under $1000 which was a big chunk of money.As soon as I turn the record player on we get a massive hum. I have tried all the settings, unplugging and plugging the system. Probably around 3 hours of trouble shooting last night following posts and reviews. You can hardly hear the music on the speakers over the loud hum and it is very annoying.I’m now reaching out the community for help. I’m at my wits end and my wife was understandably very upset we didn’t get a differet record player and speaker set.Anything else I should try? I’ve tried attaching the grounding wire and this does not work or make a difference. I’ve tried multiple settings in the app leading to a very quiet hum w
I have recently been having issues with very low audio levels from my Sonos Connect which plays through speakers via a tuner (at the highest volumes on Sonos and the tuner I could just barely hear music from my speakers). After some trouble-shooting (including using the loop-through method suggested in support), I isolated the problem as a failure in the RCA ouput.I spent a fair amount of time with customer support technicians who ran diagnostics several times. However, those diagnostics apparently did not reveal any problems (exactly what they do is unclear). Eventually, they wanted me to do various cable re-arrangements etc. As I had already connected, disconnected, swapped etc. multiple cables multiple times from various devices that was not going to yield any answers. My conclusion is that there must be some circuity in the Connect that has failed and resulted in the RCA outputs not delivering meaningful signal. The customer service people were not able to confirm that, but t
I want to connect two pair of Definitive Technologies AW6500 speakers to a Sonos Amp. According to the speaker installation instructions, each speaker presents a nominal impedance of 4-8 ohms. The Sonos Amp states it provides 125Watt continuous power sine wave, into an 8-ohm load, both channels driven. It further states that the Sonos Amp can power two pairs of 8-ohm nominal passive speakers wired in parallel. My question is can I safely wire each pair of the AW6500 speakers in parallel to the left and right channel of a Sonos Amp? If the speaker instructions indicated 8 ohms, I would have no question. However, stating 4-8 ohms has me questioning if this is safe. Any feedback will be appreciated.
Hello there! 'm in the process of renovating my house (full ren of a single story house, down to studs, full framing accessible, still weeks away from any sheetrock / drywall going up). After weeks of reading and debating (largely with myself), I'm deciding to tap collective knowledge here...I choose Sonos for my simple audio system; I'm planning to have everything run to a network rack in the pantry, somewhat in central position in the house: Room 1: open space kitchen / living / dining: 900SF - new Sonos Amp ; thinking of using an in wall volume control so that I can have different volumes in the kitchen vs. the dining area Room 2: small bedroom / office 145 SF - old Sonos Connect:Amp (but S2 compatible) Room 3: main bedroom 190 SF - old Sonos Connect:Amp (but S2 compatible) Questions I've got: what are you recommendations in terms of in-ceiling speakers for each room? Model? Size? I'm open to spending a bit more for the Room 1 since most time will be spent there - max would be $
Hi all, I have the Sonos 2.1 amp and want to add a sub woofer to the Bose 251 outdoor environmental speakers.The Bose speakers are not wireless and on the back of the amp there is a single rca plug labeled sub. So do I need a passive or powered sub to connect to this amp? 🤔 Also any suggestions for an outdoor sub would be awesome!ThanksPhil
