Hi,

Like the title says :

My Sonos Five stereo pair cuts out when receiving low volume from TV on line in. It’s a real pain. I see other people have this issue but haven’t found a solution, I have played with compression and delay to no avail.

Can anyone help?

 

Kind regards,

You’re presumably using Line-In Autoplay. Playback starts when it detects a signal and stops when it thinks the input’s gone silent.

There’s no way round this other than manually starting Line-In from the controller, instead of leaving it to Autoplay. Note that Line-In would then need to be stopped manually as well, otherwise the Fives would never go into standby.

The Five was not designed for TV usage. Line-In has a delay that’s too much for most people, upsetting lip-sync.

Sonos makes other speakers for TV, such as the Ray soundbar.

Thank you for your reply. Finally someone that makes sense. I’ll give it a try.
