Life with Sonos
Life with Sonos. How do you get the most out of your Sonos system? Got any Sonos tips to share?
I have read the thread on no Android integration for Trueplay, but I would hope spending 1500 on a system there would be a better solution than "borrow an iOS device from a friend"! Especially after3+ years!!! First thought, if it is a microphone issue, then standardize your system with 1 mic to calibrate your system with. Yamaha, Marantz, Denon, Pioneer etc ALL provide a setup mic with their systems. Microphones among iOS devices also differ, they are different from year to year and model to model. So that verbage doesn't add up or holdmuch water. Second, before the android bashing begins, I bet the cost of my system if the table was turned and it only worked on android and not iOS devices, there would be a loud outcry of Apple users, especially if told to go "borrow" an android from a friend. Not that this will change anything but I got to express my opinion. I'm the proud owner of a top-of-the-line Sonos system that is"Meh" at best.
Hi All. It’s a relief that Sonos has identified the bug that’s causing the bass distortion in Sonos Arc. Thank you @Ryan S for working with the Sonos Communty to identify the problem quickly. Having said this, I believe that Sonos still needs more work to make the Arc sound as it was advertised. Currently, multiple people on Reddit including myself are reporting the highs being too high which sort of feels “harsh”. This improve the speech clarity and brings out details in the movies, but the warmth in speech is lost because the voices sound thin and metallic (for eg. actors I know having heavy voices don’t sound heavy). I was expecting the mid-range to be a lot better considering the Arc has 8 woofers. I have tried TruPlaying twice without success (Turning TruPlay off produces muffled sound). Adjusting the treble also did not help much. Loudness turned on and off does not make a big difference either. May be, this is how the Arc is tuned?! Anyone else feels that Arc is over-empha
Hi, folks. I have a few Sonos devices and have overall been very happy with the system. But I do find one bug/limitation extremely annoying. It seems like if you have “too many” files in a local music library, Sonos just can’t cope with it, and shows “No selections are available” any time you try to use it. You have to delete some files to make your library usable again.I don’t use streaming services. I only play my own music, that I own. It’s pretty ridiculous that I have to delete parts of my library or move them to places where Sonos can’t see them (and so I can’t play them on Sonos!), just because Sonos can’t write proper database code or something. I've seen discussions of this problem before, for years, and always assumed this would get fixed with a regular update because it’s such a ridiculous limitation. But I’m starting to lose patience (and would like to be able to buy more music!)My library isn’t even *that* huge, anyway. I’m sure some folks have more music than me. I seem t
Need some help! Getting ready to move into a new home where I will have a “man-cave” with 3 TVs (all going to be Samsung - don’t yet have the model numbers) on one wall. TV left and right will utilize Apple TV to stream YouTubeTV while the center TV will use a Verizon box. I’ve got a Beam (Gen 1), Sub, and (2) Play 1’s that I currently have set up in my home. I will be using the same system in the new home. My goal is to have the ability to choose what TV plays the audio… If we have three games on the TVs and TV 1 and 2 are on commercial i want to switch the audio to TV 3. If TV 2 is the only one that’s on i want to be able to tell the sonos that i want the audio to come from tv 2… I’ve been told that i should purchase this receiver (https://www.denon.com/en-us/product/av-receivers/avr-s650h) and have the three televisions connected to the audio inputs and have the sonos connected to the output port. I’d then be able to just use the remote to choose the audio output. Will this work?
After I retune my Sonos system, I notice less bass. I checked my EQ and I set it up like I have them before and I still hear less bass. I don't know if the last updated has something to do with it. Cuz I got a notification on my S2 App telling me to retune my Sonos system. reason Cuz, it reset it with the updated. does anybody have the same problem?
Added YouTube Music to the app and it says "No Selections Available". Why? My YT account is fine and verified twice now.
So I have installed Sonos app twice now. Setting up my new Move took over an hour because the app refused to believe my router was actually functioning (another story, but relevant as the app gives misleading info a lot). Anyway, then I go onto adding services and all goes well until my paid YouTube Music account is added. I added it twice (using the whole code paste in and authorizing my Google account) and it went through each time. YouTube was successfully added. But whenever I go into YouTube Music from Sonos, it say “No Selections are Available”. Like why??????? I go onto Youtube and verify I have hundreds of playlists. All my other services work. And before someone answers from a Customer Service script and tells me to reinstall everything and reboot my router...no. Just no. I want actual advice about why Sonos is not reaching youTube. Is there a setting in YouTube or is the app just that flawed where I can look forward to playing YouTube via Bluetooth only? This is wh
Hi, I am hoping someone can help.We have recently purchased the Sonos Ray sound bar and we have only just realised that the optical on our television doesn't work. We have a spare HDMI port on our television, is there any other way of connecting the sound bar to my television without using the optical port? Our TV is a smart TV with WiFi if that makes any difference. Thank you.
Hello, I recently bought a Ray bar and I’m using it mainly to listen to music. During summer nights, we set up in our garden a projector to watch old movies. I plug an Apple TV 4k to it and until now I used an old set of wired speakers for the sound. Can I replace the speakers with the Ray? Will I be able to use Airplay for the movie sound? The only HDMI port is used to connect the AppleTV to the projector. Thanks for the assistance!!
Hi All, Currently I’m managing about 6 or 7 sonos systems and they all have the same issue after the latest update.A lot of users use the spotify connect function that is in spotify to play music on the sonos systems. But since the last update this broke.I tested if it was the update by adding a speaker that was not yet updated which still had the feature. I updated that speaker after confirming it worked. And after update it bricked spotify connect again. Is there a solution? or is this a known issue? Kind regards, Chiel
I know the shelf is technically not a Sonos product, but there is no one to contact at Ikea. Basically, the Wireless charging on the shelf is horrible! Takes me like 2-3 minutes to find the right spot to charge the phone even though they put a big plus on it where the device is supposed to go.
Hi, I can get either my Arc and Sub to show up on the app, but not my three amps. If I delete the app and reload then I can get the three amps to show up, but not the Arc or Sub. I have tried wired individually and daisy chained and wireless, nothing seems to work. I have wired speakers connected to the amps, then work on individual TV’s, but not with the ARC and Sub. Is there something, I am missing?
My playbar has just stopped responding to the Apple remote signal. The playbar IR sensor lights are not flicking on when the remote is used. The remote batteries are fine and the apple TV can be controlled.The playbar is connected to the TV via fibre audio cable.Again, the remote was controlling the playbar volume and just stopped working.If I try to setup a new remote to the playbar, the playbar does not register the IR signal.Hoping this is an easy fix and the IR debauchery on the playbar hasn't just stopped working.
I’m running an LG C9 with a Panasonic UB820 Blu-ray player, Sonos Arc + Sub gen 3 + One SL surrounds. The lack of DTS support on the Arc has been frustrating for non Dolby encoded Blu-ray discs, so I have been eagerly awaiting the multichannel PCM update.It’s finally arrived (thanks, Sonos!) and I tried playing a DTS encoded Blu-ray and… no dice. Still stereo PCM 2.0. Has anyone running a similar set-up managed to get 5.1 PCM output from the Arc?The C9 supports eARC and multichannel PCM, I’m using 48gbps HDMI cables that support up to 8k60Hz, all of the devices are up to date, I have the C9 set to PCM with eArc enabled, DTS output set to PCM on the UB820… I’m really at a loss here. Any ideas or suggested settings?
Hello, just wanted to share something i 3D-designed and then had 3D-printed in Nylon 12 black for my Home theatre project.I had the idea to hide all components/wiring unless i needed them in sight such as XBOX, PS5, Record Player, Blu-ray, etc… Therefore i thought about hanging some of it on a wall behing a panel where i could then start drawing the furniture with a false back space, etc… etc… From this idea spawned the Port Wall Bracket next to it’s Boost component. The Philips Hue Sync Box and all it’s components,drivers, etc... shared the same faith :) This is what i came up with if anyone else wants to see or maybe use it in their own system setup : [link removed] Or on YT right here : https://youtu.be/I9e5YPL773A Any thoughts, feel free to share.

Hi there,I have two Sonos One SLs a Beam and a Sky Glass TV. For some strange reason whenever i try to play audio through the tv it only plays through the beam. If i try to play audio through an app like spotify on my phone i have no issues, music plays through the beam and the two sorround one sls. Can you please advise im perplexed and not sure what to do.
I have line in set to autoplay from the headphone out of my tv . The sound is fine when I switch on the tv but if I switch to a smart app say amazon,plex etc the sonos goes to silent You then have to go in the app and hit stop then play again to resume audio despite the fact the audio source remains line in all the time.
Have a whole home Sonos installation including one Sonos Move. I've just added a Roam to use in my bathroom. It's off the charger and has gone to sleep, and appears that way in the app. Do I really have to hit a button on it to wake it up? Can't I wake it from the app like the Move? (Slightly worried I've accidentally bought something I don't want)
Sonos app seems to be draining a lot of battery while my iPad is idling. It says 2 min on screen but 23h 19m background. Weird thing is I disabled the background app refresh for Sonos specifically.this has both happened while the iPad was at home at same Wi-Fi as Sonos and away on another Wi-Fi. I have submitted a diagnostic at number 412593457. I need my Sonos app to not kill the battery while idling.
I am renovating my house and trying to decide whether to use ceiling mounted speakers for the rears (using Sonos AMP to drive them). I plan to have ARC soundbar in front and Gen2 Subwoofer that I already posses, if possible.This should result in 5.1.2 configuration but my question is related to having the rears in the ceiling instead of ear level. According to Atmos, the rears of a 5.1.2 system should be at ear level for proper 3D sound. if they are in the ceiling what will the end result be? seems to be it won’t be accurate Atmos representation. Non-3D 5.1 playback will probably sound about right I suppose...but just wondering how a Sonos 5.1.2 Atmos will make sense out of the rears being in the ceiling instead of at ear level.Its not impossible for me to place a couple of Sonos Play1’s at around ear level in addition to or instead of the ceiling mounted rears. But it will mean setting them on counters where I would rather not have a speaker with a cable running to power, etc.
Hey everyone,Not sure if anyone else has noticed this, but after the latest LG CX firmware update, I am now receiving the proper Multichannel PCM 5.1 output on my Sonos system. Previously on either of my consoles via Xbox Series X or PS5, LPCM 5.1 content would always come out as Multichannel PCM 7.1 even if the console is set to A/V Receiver and 5.1.Not sure if this was either fixed by the latest Sonos updates or the LG firmware update. This is related to this issue.Please read if you have encountered issues with 7.1 LPCM playback on Sonos via an LG TV
Hi. I have an LG C8 OLED TV and a Beam, connected Via HDMI Arc. I also have some Sony Bluetooth headphones. Whenever I try and play the TV audio via Bluetooth after 2 seconds it switches back to Arc. Is there anyway to prevent this? I have to pull the HDMI lead out of the Beam, but can it be disabled via the app or some other way? Thanks.
