When will Sonos update the app with a 3 band EQ? Bass-Mid-Treble?

I would be happy with adjustable midrange update on the sonos app! I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who would like this addition.

But, an automatic transmission, while presenting only two speeds to the driver, can shift faster and at more appropriate times. Sure, the automatic costs some power, but think how much power is wasted by the liquid rubber interface with the road.

Wow, a parametric EQ! It would be great. However I was thinking baby steps. A 3 band or 5 band EQ would be a decent way to go for now since they don’t seem very concerned about it. Sonos has a blind spot right now. It’s like they have high end sports car with a 2 speed transmission ( forward and reverse). It’s nice but it could be so much better. I should have done better research before I bought it. Denon wireless receiver might be a better alternative going forward. Plenty of EQ with them.

Some will want a parametric equalizer.

I know users who always boost tone controls to the max and this is what sounds “best”. For these listeners additional tone controls would be a great plus because more controls could be set to max.

okay, but I still think a 3 band EQ is a needed upgrade, 5 band would be better!

car stereos have a mid control

 

Indeed they do. But high end hifi amplifiers generally do not.  You may wish to ponder on that.

why buy anything new when they go with the bare minimum cheap EQ?

Cheap???  

My reason for buying the speakers would be that they sound great and give me limited opportunities to screw things up.  There is an almost limitless number of factors that are more critical to the quality of the sound.

Finally, a good idea....

this is crazy, new speakers put ancient equalizer. I will buy new speakers only after they provide an EQ with midrange adjustment.

Sounds like another great Idea!

I would personally find it helpful to also have separate EQ settings attached to TV listening and Music playback. 

Yes +1, I would like a little more (granularity) customisation options in this area too - I would perhaps even settle for some EQ ‘presets’ for both TV and Music audio.

I would also like to see a manual L/R balance control for Sonos HT rooms.


 

Please - please no EQ presets, I have yet to experience a EQ preset that I have been satisfied with.

I would prefer a customisable EQ, that’s for sure. 👍

presets would be nice also! It seems so obvious. Car stereos have a mid controls why not Sonos? It would be to there advantage, in my opinion, to stick with a little tried and true as well as the tech!
