Using the sub
Hi I am about to add 2 sonos 1s as a stereo pair to my living room. In my conservatory I have an existing system of 2 sonos 1s and a sonos sub. How can I configure the living room pair to use the sonos sub in the conservatory, but ensure the sub still works with the conservatory pair? Thanks for any pointers.
I have recently lost the ability to control the balance of my rears, when used as rear surrounds. Sonos have told me that the only way to restore the balance control is to separate them from the room as surrounds. When set up in trueplay mode or not they, the rears, are out of balance which makes listening to music terrible. This can’t be correct. Can it?
Feature request: Adjust Night Mode strength
I’m not sure how to contact Sonos regarding feature requests so I’ll just add it here and hope for the best: I would like to be able to adjust the amount of the “night mode” effect used. I live in an apartment and there’s only maybe a 2-3 hour window in each day where I can fully enjoy my surround system. Unfortunately that’s during the day when it’s bright in my living room.Because of this I have to use “night mode” almost exclusively when watching content. While it sounds great, it’s a bit too extreme for normal daytime use. If I could bring the effect down 50% it would be perfect. I think that a lot of users would appreciate this function and a lot of purists might be less disgusted to hear it was being used. 😁
Offtopic: Anyone know where I can find a Sansui s-x1200?
We had a Sansui s-x1200 driving a set of Cerwin Vega D9s growing up. I still have the Cerwin Vegas but I would like to find the Sansui for sentimental value. Anyone know where to find one in the USA? After buying my Sonos gear (Arc, Sub & Ones), it has really brought me back into a love of music. Refoaming the D9s and picked up an Amp to drive them. If I can find the Sansui, I think I’ll be forced to get a Port too lol.
Sonos Playbar has started emitting a horrible high pitched sound
Hi, my before now, perfectly working Sonos sound bar has started emitting a horrible high pitched whine all the time. I contacted support who asked me to try a few things, then send a recording of the sound, which I did, but have now heard nothing back. any ideas how I can resolve?

Is it possible to connect both my Sonos Beam and two hard wired speakers to my Amp for surround sound purposes whilst at the same time using the same Amp to connect to 2 separate hard wired speakers (just to play music through them but not wanting them to play the surround sound from the tv)? Or does they require 2 Amps?
Sonos Beam and Samsung UE50RU7400U
Hey allI’ve read a lot of posts on users having trouble connecting the Beam to Samsung televisions, but can’t seem to find a definitive answer on whether my TV will experience these issues.Does anyone use the Beam with a Samsung UE50RU7400U, and if so, do you have issues with it?I’m really keen to add the Beam to my setup but don’t want to run the risk of buying it and it not workingThank you in advance for any help you have provide :-)Rex
status light on OneSL’s when setup as surrounds with Beam.
Setup: beam and 2 OneSL’s as surround products. I don’t always want to use the system in surround mode, so toggle the surround setting to off - simple. However, doing so changes the status lights on the OneSL’s to flashing green - which is kinda annoying. The issue though, is that the OneSL status light still flashes even when status lights settings are toggled to off! Any suggestions to overcome this? Am I missing something?
TV sound format query
Hi. This may sound like a daft question but do TV channels broadcast in more than one format?What I mean is before I had the Sonos Arc I had no idea what format I was playing as I had no way of knowing.Then before I had added the Sonos Sub Gen 3, the Sonos app was showing as, say, Stereo PCM and finally now that I have added 2 surround speakers it is showing as Dolby Digital 5.1So surely the same broadcast must be broadcasting audio in multi-formats at any one time? 🤔
I recently installed a Beam and 2 ones as a tv surround system.I already had a Play 3.Have just added Google Assistant for voice control.All works great except I cannot turn my tv on and off with voice control.New Phillips 49 PUS with HDMI ARC port.Assume a setting somewhere but would appreciate advise.Thanks.
I have a Sony X950-h and a Sonos arc. I set the eArc mode on the TV to auto. Now whatever content I play through streaming services it says in the Sonos app that it is playing in Dolby Atmos, even with shows that I know for a fact are not in Atmos. Does anyone know why that is? If I turn the eArc mode off it then displays in the app the true audio however it will only then play Atmos content with Dolby digital plus. I just want to make sure that I am truly getting Atmos with Atmos compatible programs. Thank you!
