Life with Sonos
Life with Sonos. How do you get the most out of your Sonos system? Got any Sonos tips to share?
Would be great on the desktop controller if we could click on the now playing artist / album / track artwork to make it full screen.At the moment you just get a slightly larger pointless thumbnail on the mini player, it would be great if this could go fullscreen.I understand that the image is square in shape so wouldn’t be able to stretch to fit to a rectangular screen, but a larger image against a solid colour backround (white or black) would give the desktop app a great look when music is playing. Just like the mobile app but landscape for a desktop screen. Surely a possibility in 2022?
I’m looking at purchasing a Synology DS120J 1 bay NAS System with 1x 3Tb WD Red HDD to use as storage for all my music CDs (a mix of standard and SACD formats). I would like to connect the Synology NAS to my Sonos system which is made up of 5 Sonos ZP120 Amps and 1 Sonos ZP90 Zone Player in order to play my music throughout the house via the Sonos App.Could you please advise if this setup will work for me.
I want to listen my fire TV stick through my Sonos Move but I can not get both of them connected. I have succeed with controlling Fire Tv with Alexa from my Sonos but not to play the fire TV on my Sonos, could you please help me? I could not find any solution to this topic in the community. Thanks!
I have a Panasonic GZ1000 and a Sony UBP-700.I am fully aware that my Sonos ARC does not support full DTS, but i was under the impression I could access a 7.1 PCM pass through (or at the least 5.1) on any DTS-X input? i have my blu-ray set to:Digital output: PCM (have also tried on auto)DSD: offSecondary: off48hzDRC: off i have my TV set to :Audio format: auto (have also tried on PCM)Dolby Atmos; on (although i know it is irrelevant here) When playing a title such as ET which comes with DTS-X 7.1, i get 5.1 Dolby plus on the menu screen and then PCM 2.0 during the film. What am i doing wrong that is preventing the Sonos from outputting 7.1 multichannel? The speaker works fine with Dolby Atmos (obviously) and the software is 14.14 so should have the DTS upgrade. it is driving me insane because it means i am going to have to get a HDFury just to get the proper experience out of any Universal pictures 4Ks i own (as for some reason they favour DTS over Dolby). any advice on how to remedy w
I desperately need some guidance with this research because I'm at my wit's end.I simply need a tangible remote control—not an iPad or phone—that I can use to adjust the level on a selection of Sonos speakers or on ALL of them.No more Tradfri gateways are available, so you'll have to wait till their new hub is ready, however it looks like their Tradfri remote may manage a number of devices (or all speakers). I have the remote but no hub yet.pico remote and lutron hub just went down this rabbit hole and there is no Sonos "group" support; you can only operate ONE speaker at a time.
I have two Sonos Play 5 units paired in stereo and the Sonos Sub. My primary use for this is playback of my personal music files. I have been very happy with Sonos except I am very interested in being able to play my personal high resolution files (24/48, 24/96 and 24/192). I know Sonos supports 24/48 streaming but I want to use my own files. What is on the horizon to catch up technology wise. I would love to continue with Sonos but that may become an insurmountable issue without that support. Speaking of on the horizon is there any upgrades or new models in the works to add another level of speaker above the Play 5 or its current iteration the Sonos Five?
Sonos Arc, Play 1 surrounds, gen 1 sub, I haven’t really ‘pushed’ my system for a while, but have noticed sound issues in recent shows and movies that do not feel right - turns out my once sounding amazing home theater system is now absolutely horrific - I tested with 6 Underground on netflix which was once my ‘showcase’ movie for what the Arc and Sonos can do, and there’s such a substantial difference, I’m wondering if there is a way I can get anywhere close to what it was before, whether Sonos has acknowledged the issues and working on a fix, or whether it’s time to pack up shop? Everything from the immersion, explosions, dialog, I can’t even explain it, sounds like a cheap Bluetooth speaker. I have tried with Truplay on and off, I saw recently the recommendations now is OFF, although the software keeps tasking me to re-tune.Honestly the fact that I have to take the time to write something like this severely agitates me, I’ve been a Sonos user for years with over 10 speakers, but can
I have a Niles gxr2 whole house system installed with wall mount display and keypads. i bought the apple 30 pin to composite cable.

Hi. I have a Play 1, Play 3 and Boost which are operating under S1. I was originally told I could upgrade my existing kit to S2 but now whenever I try I am told my devices are incompatible with S2. I just bought a new Roam, which is S2, and I do understand that I cannot link the speakers as they are not compatible, but can I link my Roam to my existing library, playlists, favourites etc. or do I have to set it up entirely from scratch? I cannot even find out how to add my iTunes to the Roam let alone anything else. I have the S2 and S1 apps on my iPhone, but my main channel for my existing speakers is the Sonos Controller on my iMac, which incidentally will not enable the update they tell me is waiting to load.
Sonos Arc not appearing on app after working perfectly well since set up many months ago. I have powered off device, rebooted wifi and device. Sound working on TV through HDMI arc cable. All other Sonos devices are working fine Grateful for advice to get system back working again
Im interested in installing the Sonance In Wall speakers as fronts in a 4.1 home theater system. They’ll be powered by the Sonos Amp and I’ll be using wireless Sonos 1s mounted on the ceiling as rears.However, the wall they’re going in is a really weird configuration and they’ll need to be mounted about 6-7 ft off the ground (approx position in light blue below). Is there any way (or 3rd party product on the market) that will allow them to be angled slightly down and in toward the main viewing position? I also had the thought of installing the Sonance In Ceiling in the wall instead as they can easily be angled. Not sure if they’re specifically designed to shoot down and installing in the wall would be weird?Any thoughts or better ideas on where to put front speakers welcome!
LONG time Customer with legacy components (Connect, ConnectAmp, Play1) that work just fine within Sonos S1 App - Don’t want, need or can afford to upgrade equipment.But thinking about adding a Sonos Beam gen2 soundbar - How do I integrate this product into my current system? Would separate S1 & S2 Apps work? Other better solutions?Sonos has been a great system but feeling a little left behind or forced to change... Thanks,BobJ
I have a ray and surround sound through an amp. I paired the remote and it says it is set up on sonos app. The volume bar goes up and down on the screen but the volume doesn’t change when using Tv remote. The sound is coming out of the sonos system and not TV speakers so it is connected but not working. Any ideas?

I currently have a turntable connected to a connect amp with 2 wharfdale speakers and a sub connected. I want to add a Yamaha ex-v450 amp to boost power. What’s the best wiring configuration for the speakers?
I currently have the Sonos S2 app installed on my iPAD. I have a large music collection on a NAS, which I control using Asset UPnP. I have set up a unique instance of Asset for the sonos so that only mp3 files are used (I have a fair number of FLAC files in our collection). Having enabled “show UPnP servers” in the media servers options under settings, I am able to see the entire collection using the music tab.Unfortunately, with my setup I am unable to add an entire album to the queue or a playlist. I have searched the forum and found two potential solutions (long press album art, then scroll down) or (press … symbol at in the upper right of the screen when viewing album tracks and then scroll down). Unfortunately, neither works. When I scroll down from either spot, nothing happens. Can anyone help?Thanks
