For some reason, I cannot use the ‘My Music’ function of the Apple Music Service anymore. It displays “We’ve run into a problem. Try again.” I have deleted the app on all my devices, reinstalled. I’ve deleted the service and reauthorized. I’ve reset my router. Apple Music works fine. It’s only within the Sonos app that the error occurs. Please help. Family account if that matters, and both users experience this.
Hi Sonos Feature Teams,with your ongoing focus on content (such as Sonos Radio HD, Curated Playlists) it would be really cool if you could partner with Roon (more than just being compatible with Roon as endpoints) in order display their rich content (album reviews, band information, lyrics, AppleTV app TV:Remote, recommendations, enhanced search, additional album art, etc.) for us music lovers. As the Sonos speakers are already in the home network, there would be no need for a local Roon Core but only a cloud-service integrating into the Sonos App (and support for more end-devices like AppleTV, FireTVStick, SmartTVs,...) would be needed. This would really enrich the user experience - at least I would be willing to pay a subscription fee for such added value. Please contact me if you want to hear my ideas.Roon Review: https://www.headphonesty.com/2021/05/introduction-to-roon/
Hi,I’m messing with the idea of buying a turntable - mostly for the fun of faffing with it and buying records.But will my ears tell the difference between a record being played and the same music being played via Spotify?I currently own a Beam and two Threes. If I buy a turntable I would have to also buy a Five (discussions here suggest that’s better than buying the Port for the same price).Putting the enjoyment of handling vinyl to one site: will I hear a difference in sound?Sorry if this is a daft question. Genuinely interested before I splash out.
I am an Apple user and I would love to be able to use Airplay and an external disc drive connected to my iMac to play music DVDs through my Sonos One. That would be an extremely powerful and useful addition to Sonos functionality. (Note that uploading the songs from one’s CD collection in order to play them on the Sonos is NOT a good workaround…..) Alternatively, Sonos should partner with a few peripheral manufacturers to develop a proprietary "service" -- similar to Spotify Connect -- which would enable at least their devices (eg, disc players) to use the Sonos One as an output when connected to an Apple computer.
Happy Sonos user here. Trying to migrate away from a world of “my music takes up my entire hard drive” to one where I can still listen to my decades of MP3s but via streaming. I’m considering a few options including Apple Music and YouTube Music which both support “upload your own songs and then stream them”. I can’t tell from the “Apple Music and Sonos” page — does Sonos with Apple Music support playing these songs specifically (the ones you upload) or just the ones that come in their streaming service? (And the same question for YouTube music too, I guess.)
I’ve been adding songs to a large playlist for the last few hours. These are all albums on my NAS, not from streaming services. Although the message displayed is that all the songs on the albums are being added, at some point it simply stopped adding them.The playlist currently has about 3500 songs and when I add up all my playlists there are about 12300 songs in total.Is there a hard limit on tracks in a single playlist?Is there a limit on the number of tracks in all playlists?Is it just me or should I have gotten a message saying the adding is failing rather than that it worked?
Saw this issue discussed in earlier threads, but didn’t see a ‘how to fix’ solution. I’ve just had this problem. I’d previously transferred all the CD albums to desktop in FLAC format to match CD quality; no problem. But when I transferred the music files to a Flash drive to download to WMP on a laptop all of the albums were missing track 1. Spent ages trying to resolve the issue and eventually tripped over a remedy. I noticed that all the missing track 1’s were listed in a ‘Unknown Album’ folder; but I couldn’t see a way of reinstating the tracks. I tripped over the solution when using the WMP ‘Find Album Info’. Beneath that dropdown menu is ‘Update album info’; click on this and hey presto track 1 returns. Incidentally this problem didn’t occur with mp3; the issue seems to be with mp4. Hope this helps someone.
Dear Sonos could you please explain your route about high resolution music support? I understand you support now on S2 and Port up to 24bit and 48khz.What worth is it as the majority of provided ‘high res’ music formats are 24bit 96 khz?It is none. You either can play the regular high res or not.Your upgrade is just a lossless CD Quality (16bit 44khz) with a bit of headroom (24bit 48khz). A great offer would be: The port and amp plays the original file, for example 24bit 96khz. If needed converts it to lower resolution to be played on the play one’s and five’s … .A port / amp should always give you the possibility to play the original quality file.
Do you have any help on why all of my songs have transferred over to my new PC on the SONOS app but the playlists have not transferred? In iTunes I had exported the iTunes playlists and then successfully imported them onto my new PC (the playlists show up in iTunes), but Sonos is not syncing the playlists. I did the import prior to installing and updating the SONOS app and I have updated my music library.Thanks again for any help.
I see this question was posted over a year ago, but no one seemed to know the answer (unless I missed it?). So I figured I’d ask again! As an example, if I go into the Tidal Android app or the Tidal desktop app and look up Elvis Costello’s King of America, it is listed exactly one time. But in the Sonos app, it lists three times, and each one looks identical:Clicking on them, there is no difference in track listing. On Tidal, this album is listed as “Master” quality. So one possibility is that Tidal, behind the scenes, has three different steam types available for this same album. Perhaps, that’s why Sonos shows it like it is three different albums? Maybe each one sound a bit different? I’m curious if Sonos or Tidal has addressed why this is happening. (I realize this is probably Tidal’s issue, but since it makes it harder to use Sonos, it would be great if Sonos could pressure Tidal to fix -- or at least tell us what is broken so that Tidal users like myself could approach Tidal to f
I am having trouble syncing my iTunes playlists to sonos. Everything worked fine until I upgraded my PC. My old iTunes XML file works still but since I had to reinstall iTunes, it created a new XML file and has my updated playlists in a different folder. I have added that folder to sonos and removed my old XML file but now all that shows up is my music files, no playlists. I’ve been playing around with it for a few days now and can’t seem to find the issue, any help would be appreciated. I have double checked permissions and that the XML file allows for indexing.
I’m at a rented villa for a month that has two Sonos speakers. I can play their music but want to play mine and understand that I will need to use airplay. My question should all Sonos speakers be discoverable on a given wifi network? I’ve tried I think all the troubleshooting tips I’ve seen in this forum but have still had no luck. Anyone have any tips/tricks?. Thx.
All albums display and play fine when I search for them in the My Sonos interface (using Amazon Music), and/or play from the “Recently Played” row; but when I add albums to My Sonos, some of them display in the “Albums” row without cover art or title (they are simply titled “Tracks”). And when I try to play these from that row, they play only one track at a time – the Queue does not populate with the entire album.
I have my Sonos system with Spotify Password saved on it.I now would like to create, for my office separated from my house, another Sonos account using the same configuration, including Spotify. But I do not remember the Spotify pasword that I used.Is there any chance to get the saved password from Sonos Controller / App ?many thanks.
Can anyone tell me what is supposed to be included under the “My Music” heading within the Apple Music service in the Sonos app? I assumed it would show me music that I’ve added to my Library from within the native Apple Music app, but it’s empty (all sections within My Music are empty — artists, albums, playlists, etc). All other aspects of Apple Music that the Sonos app supports work fine.
