ZVOX SB500 commercial volume leveling output leveling

We switched from a ZVOX SB500 to Sonos Beam.  We forgot what a great job ZVOX did controlling the volume of commercials.

Sonos Beam does not, or I do not know how to turn on volume leveling.

The wife wants me to dump the Sonos and put back the ZVOX.  Please help.

Hi, welcome to the Sonos Community!

I’d recommend turning on Night Mode on the system, this can help alleviate the jump in volume between TV shows and commercials.  

Sonos will play what it’s being given by the TV and doesn’t recognize show from commercial. I’m not sure how possible it would be with our current hardware as looking up ZVOX, this feature seems to use a specific processor to handle the audio leveling.

Our community members may have other suggestions, such as third party devices you could use, but this isn’t a feature we have. However I've marked this thread as a feature request and it will be seen by the relevant teams for consideration.


Ok, Thanks, I will hope for a Beam 3.
