I have a Sonos Amp driving my home theater along with a few different Sonos speakers throughout the house. When I play music, they’re all grouped together and sound amazing. When I’m watching TV, the other speakers need to be turned down or muted or it creates a pretty bizarre echo as the dialog is slightly out of sync. Every time I sit down to watch TV I’m in the Sonos app muting other speakers.
Ungroup on Autoplay - this feature is ALMOST perfect. What I’d rather have is “mute other speakers on autoplay” so I don’t have to re-group things when it’s time to play music. Re-grouping takes a lot longer and requires a phone compared to setting volume quickly by tapping the speaker or using voice control.
In fact, my perfect feature request is to remember volume levels for each source.
- Source switches to TV: 25% volume on Amp, 5% volume on all other speakers.
- Source switches to Spotify: 25% volume on all speakers.
I manually do the two bullets above several times each day.
Anyway, keep on keepin’ on. Love my Sonos system.
