Hi all -
I got a pair of One SL speakers and a sub. They sound great paired as a stereo setup, and I love how well it fills my room with sound. I only use the system in my office and I love the wireless setup.
My problem is that I can’t figure out how to use this thing properly. I use Spotify a lot, I do a lot of YouTube, watch videos on Facebook from time to time, and listen to podcasts/audio right from a browser. With my old bluetooth speakers, i just set the bt speaker as the audio out for my laptop and everything is perfect.
With Sonos, every time I change to a new audio source (i.e. from Spotify to browser) I wind up having to figure out how to re-adjust the volume and make sure it’s coming from the Sonos speakers. I thought I could set my computer to use the Airplay/Sonos as it’s audio output .but it keeps disconnecting.
For example, say I am listing to a youtube video and my OSX is using Airplay to play on Sonos. Now i move to another tab and play a video on Facebook (or anywhere), I hear nothing. I have to go back to settings, switch the audio to use the built-in speakers, then set them again to go to airplay then it works.
Same with volume - each time I change the source I have to figure out how to change the volume. It’s making me crazy.
Is there any way to simply choose the Sonos via Airplay as my audio source and have it just work regardless of what audio my laptop is producing?
