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 upgraded my Sonos to the latest version which includes Airplay 2. In the settings page of the Sonos app it tells me I do not have any compatible Airplay speakers. I have 3 Sonos One speakers, 2 grouped together. Why are these not showing up?
I have just added the Sonos Playbar to my samsung smart TV and have discovered the lack of DTS functionality through reading this forum. I find it disappointing that the best we can get is a stereo effect through the playbar? My originial search was based on identifying a way of using my existing Onkyo nr509 AV Amp with the playbar however that appears to be a no go option as well. The concept of buying and adding the playbar as a step change to the surround sound system I had has left me feeling I have done the wrong thing? Slightly cheated in a sense too, I hear what Sonos are saying that the majority of content is streamed and agree we use netflix however I also enjoy having a collection of Bluray discs and feel Sonos should fulfil both requirements. If anyone can give us an idea as to when this may be re-considered as it looks like Sonos have closed the subject down from reading through the forums. Do I revert to my old system and return the Playb
I see there are 92 articles on Amazon Echo here in the SONOS community. Has anyone from SONOS responded? Does SONOS have any intent to support Amazon Echo integration? I can't imagine anyone not wanting that. It feels like that is just how SONOS should work. We love our SONOS system but we keep finding ourselves using the lesser quality Echo just because it's easier. I wish I could use my SONOS system as my speaker and my ECHO as the controller (unless of course my SONOS could just do the same thing). I can't imagine how anyone will beat ECHO for speed and quality of response. Not even SIRI can compete with our Amazon Echo experience. If I have to I will replace my SONOS system with a bunch of ECHO's but I would never want to do that. Not even because of the investment I have already made with SONOS. I would buy a whole new SONOS system if I could have the AMAZON ECHO controller. Are there any representatives of the SONOS company in this community? Can I even wish for true Integr
Hi, I am trying to build a 7.1 Home Theater system for my basement. Following is the kind of system I am trying to build (Link at Dolby site). Also see the picture below: I was wondering, if we have an Arc as mid, can we setup a 7.1 through Sonos? Any idea?
Whats the best way to add a microphone to the sonos system that is loud enough for a major event? We use the sonos system for our business and love it but we would love to be able to use it during an up coming event we are having. What Do you suggest for plugging in a microphone of some sort and how would you suggest connecting everything? Being a large event and facility,we need it to be as loud as our music which is amazingly loud.
I have a playbar, sub, and two play:1 speakers. I have a new Sony 4k TV and I am trying to watch Netflix in 4K with 5.1 surround. When I go to About in the Sonos controller I can see it says 5.1 but I am not hearing anything from the play:1s, not sure if I hear the subwoofer.
I just published an Instructable showing how to add an aux line-in to Sonos using a Raspberry Pi. I use it primarily to listen to an over-the-air radio station that's not available online but it is perfect for adding a turntable to Sonos... https://www.instructables.com/id/Add-Aux-to-Sonos-Using-Raspberry-Pi/ [img]2894e675-475a-4b71-a00c-7ee584a92043.jpg[/img]
Hi guys, tried searching but can’t find an answer to my specific question. I have had my beam for a few weeks, and noticed in my Samsung TV settings audio out was set to PCM. When I changed to Dolby Digital, the difference is significant and the bass response sounds a lot better. Is this what I should be having it on, or should I have PCM? I wouldn’t want to risk doing damage to the unit, the bass is far more significant while the bass on the Sonos settings remains at default. Looking for a little advice if it’s ok - thanks guys :)
Hello, Already owner of a Play-5 I am currently following with interest the arrival of the playbar. I have 1 question regarding the Ethernet connection of the PlayBar. I could see there are 2 ports and in the specifications it is mentioned : '[I]A single Ethernet port can connect PLAYBAR to a wired home network. A second Ethernet port can be used to share wireless control.[/I]' My Play-5 is currently connected with Eternet to the router. If I would buy a playbar, it would take the place of the Play-5. the Play-5 would then be moved to another room. So will the Playbar act as the Play-5 that means be the entry point to the router to then connect other components ? Thanks for your feedback. Regards, Régis
Moving to another apartment and selling my old stereo equipment I now have spare 2 x play 1 and 1 x play 5 on hands that were before used for different rooms. Due to convenience factor I would like to move one of these to my main listening area but i still question which way to go. Either i add another Play 5 or purchase a Sub to go with Play 1s. Having small kids my listening volume is normally quite low. Reading this forum some suggest that the sound from play 5s would give me fuller sound but bass from the Sub would be much better, while others seem to think play 1s do sound better on their own when Sub comes into the picture. I understand the decision would always be subjective but would still like to hear some advice. Thanks Tomaz
I had two Play1 as stereo in my living room. Now I have plugged one of them out and moved to the kitchen. I would now like to create a new room “Kitchen” for this speaker and add that speaker, thus removing it from the living room. Could somebody tell me which settings to use in the Sonos application?
Hi! I am having issues connecting my Sonos Amp (Black) to my Klipsch SW-311 10-Inch Subwoofer (or vice-versa). I currently have two Klipsch speakers and the Klipsch Subwoofer connected to the Sonos Amp. Both speakers play but I am getting no sound from the subwoofer. The subwoofer is connected to the sub port on the Sonos Amp and the LFE port on the sub. The sub plays when connected to my Yamaha system but doesn't play when connected to the Sonos Amp. Is my sub's connection wrong? Will a sub with a built-in amp not work with the Sonos Amp? What am I doing wrong? Help please... Jale01
I know this is always going to be a personal preference, but does anyone have any advice or pros / cons of different services? I was going to sign up for Spotify Premium just for the Sonos access, but have seen a lot of threads complaining about the lack of functionality in the Sonos implementation of the Spotify app, particularly the lock of Spotify Radio support. What about Rdio, Deezer and others? I am based in Sweden so Last.fm and US only services are currently out of reach :-( I could just sign up for each one for a month and test drive them but I'd love to hear the thoughts and recommendations of the Sonos community!!
