I just set up my Sonos system and I am not sure if the following is correct: it is **not** possible to send output from any Android app to Sonos app to have it outputed through the Sonos speaker?Take the YouTube app (not YouTube music)as an example. Is my understanding correct that it is not possible to use the app and listen to it's content on the Sonos speakers (at least not out of the box)? If it is correct am I the only one thinking this is somewhat fraud? There are endless apps which have audio output and Sonos decides that only a few dozens are worth being used (as they are supported as services in the app)?
I am trying to setup my Theater room where my 98% of usage will be of watching movies and rather than going with a traditional setup wondering if i could do away with Sonos Arch + Sub + anything else (I am looking for surround sound more than Atmos) as most of the streaming services only support surround sound for now.Planning to setup a Screen size of 135 - 150 in Projector screen Will I need a AC Receiver If i have to use a sonos with a Epson 3800/4400/5050B ?My room is going to be a closed room with dimensions 14 x 19 x 11.Will Sonos Arc and Sub version 3 work with this size of a room ?
Hi I have a pair of Sonos Era 100 and a pair of Sonos Era 300 speakers.Both pairs are used to play records via Bluetooth to my Sony Bluetooth turntable.Since upgrading to version 15.10, both of my speaker sets are able to pair up to my Bluetooth turntable, but I am getting no sound.I have unpaired and re-paired both sets several times, but to no avail.I am able to pair up my phone to them over Bluetooth and play music no problem.Anyone else got the same issue?Can anyone suggest anything?Kind RegardsMartin
Hi,I have a Gen 2 Beam, a Mini Sub and two rear Era 100’s, is it possible to add a further two Era 100’s as front right and left speakers? The TV and the Beam are off centre in my room, I’m thinking that two front speakers would enable me to balance the front sound with the Beam acting as a centre speaker (I previously had a non-Sonos setup which did this).
Hi Sonos, i have spent a fruitless few hours trying to get my system not work. Despite little hiccups with previous app updates I have generally been able to get it working. Now however, I am just sooooo annoyed and frustrated by trying to connect my well placed existing system. All the trouble shooting suggestions require massive disruptions to the WiFi in my house or unplugging each device and starting them individually, only to find they connect for a millisecond and then disappear and say the product was not found. I have sent diagnostic reports, but all it will say is nothing is found. i had a great system and well connected to my WiFi, only to have an obsolete system working perfectly for a number of years. Now I am just deflated and disappointed as I contemplate buying a new system I can afford! Thanks for not showing any loyalty to your customers or systems.
So we have a number of Sonos boxes; a couple of S2 Connect:Amps and Connects, play:1s and now a Beam & Mini Sub.Everything was pretty stable until the summer, when the amps started glitching. Some days fine, sometimes all over the place. I am not sure what suddenly made these unstable - a random software update on Sonos or the wifi router, or the amps getting too hot in the cupboard they are in. (Could this make this happen?). They sit next to each other on a shelf feeding remote ceiling speakers.The other boxes work fine.I have tried all sorts of things; moving wireless router away, restarting everything, resetting, wriing differently.We have a TP-Link X20 mesh router of 3 boxes (one of which is (was) near the amps. The amps are wired to a Netgear unmanaged switch. The amps are wired to the switch. (I read that mesh networks could impact performance - but it all worked fine for about 2 years.)They do the same thing, whether using Sonosnet, or the wifi network, whether st
Hey gang,We have a SONOS ARC and SUB and it sounds amazing. Have some questions about how to integrate this for ATMOS with some architectural speakers? Like - how many AMPS will we need? And will this all work haha? Here’s our setup and question/situation laid out in more detail, haha: The house we bought/renovated came with 4 built in wall speakers perfectly placed for surround sound - 2 in the front, on either side of the TV (and about 10 feet apart, 2 feet above ear level, per Dolby). And 2 in the back - about 10 feet behind us, at ear level. Honestly, all pretty close to spec with what Dolby recommends when you go on their site. So that’s all good. On Black Friday, I found 4 SONOS in-wall speakers to replace these - as the ones we had are third party, and I know Truplay won’t work unless you use the SONANCE, yeah? So we’re going to get these installed. So that’s the first question - to have these work with the ARC and SUB, do we need one AMP or two AMPs? Ive seen several posts in t
I have Play 3 (x2) and Play 1 working just fine. They access Synology NAS for my music folder. I added a Connect:Amp (ZP120) which feeds 2 outdoor speakers, but it’s access to the music folder is denied. Radio and Spotify work fine, just access to the NAS folders is the problem.I have rebooted the NAS (I have SMB1 and NTLMv1 checked), removed and readded the path to the NAS folders in the S1 app.I tried altering the config file (smb? via SSH and PuTTY) but when I typed in cd/etd/samba it said that the file could not be found.I can play the outside speakers from the NAS file, but I have to group it to either the Play 3 or the Play 1.I cannot figure out if it is the Sonos unit or the NAS.Any ideas?Glenn
I have three Sonos speakers (two Play: 1 and one Play: 3). Yesterday I bought the Pro-Ject E1-BT turntable (bluetooth).If I wanted to listen the music of my new turntable on my Sonos speakers, I would have to buy the basic Sonos Connect or the amplified model (Sonos Connect Amp)? Thank you,Andrea
Hi, I have an old Sonos Connect: Amp that I have a couple of bookshelf speakers connected to. I also have a Sonos Bridge. Can I somehow play my Apple TV 4K audio through the speakers? This would have to be over wifi. This Connect: Amp does not have HDMI.If so, can somebody point me to instructions on how to set this up? I cannot find any information on this.Thanks.Sonny
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!!!
Hi, I’ve built a new kitchen diner extension on my house and wanted to install the architect/Sonance in ceiling speakers in the space. I’m looking at buying the set which gives two speakers and an amp, then adding a second set of speakers as I understand the Amp can handle up to about 6 speakers. I have numerous SONOS products throughout my house already, and wanted to make sure the Amp would connect just like any other product and I could control music in the new space just like any other speaker in my house.Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.Thanks, Gareth.
I have a Sonos AMP which was added to Apple Home app. I have an Apple HomePod too. I can control the Apple music on the HomePod with my iPhone and with my MacBook. I’m not AirPlaying to the HomePod, I can select it from the “Control Other Speakers & TVs” list and the HomePod streams from Apple Music itself. I would like to achieve this with the Sonos AMP. I know it is possible, but just via a very tricky way.Normally the AMP doesn’t show up on the “Control Other Speakers & TVs” list when I used it with other source (ex.: HDMI ARC). If I select as an AirPlay destination on my iPhone, I can AirPlay to it but in this case the iPhone sends a stream to the AMP. If I close the music app on the iPhone the music stops on the AMP. But if I ask Siri on the HomePod (not on iPhone) to play something on Sonos, a music played back on sonos, and the AMP shows up on “Control Other Speakers & TVs” list. In this case the AMP streams directly from Apple Music. I tried to disconnect the HomeP
What is the purpose of the Ethernet port on the arc soundbar and the sub? Currently I have the arc connected via WiFi but I am wondering if Ethernet would be better. Router is located on the TV console about 18 inches behind the soundbar. Wi-Fi connection shouldn’t be a problem. I do understand that my sub and era300’s connect via WiFi to the arc.
I have a Sonos Connect:Amp that has been working great until recently. I have read through several similar posts in here and performed some troubleshooting, perhaps the most helpful to highlight is after reconnecting the amp to the app, the light is white. I have no speakers plugged into the amp and I attempt to play music to the amp and it immediately begins to flash white/amber. Any suggestions?
Last week I noticed that 8 of my Sonos devices were incompatible with the Sonos 1 app. Somehow the 8 devices were upgraded to 15.x. I have never installed the Sonos 2 app, so I don’t know how this could have happened.I looked through the community forum and saw that I would need to factory reset these devices, then install the S2 app and downgrade each device. I was able to downgrade all devices except for my two ZP100 devices. The S2 app does not list the ZP100s to downgrade, so now I’m stuck.Any advice on how to downgrade the ZonePlayers? I’m pulling out my hair with all theses steps to get my devices working once again.
Hi there,I’m having an issue where my brand new Sonos beam will cut audio for a split second and return, like a pop, consistently whilst watching TV. The video doesn’t freeze frame or indicate that there is anything wrong with the stream or our internet I’ve replaced the HDMI cable but that hasn’t helped. I’ve seen other posts that seem to be discussing the same problem where no real solution is presented, if any exist I’d appreciate a link, if not is there anything I can do to solve this problem as it’s very frustrating.
