The Beatles Get Back Rooftop Performance
I know specific bands are not really a discussion on this forum, too each his own. However, they just released this performance on various music services. Not a huge fan but recognize their and its musical significance to history. Just listened through Apple Music via Dolby Atmos with my Arc surround set. Just have to say really awesome and would definitely recommend taking 42 minutes to do so. Just incredible.
Do NOT want TuneIn!
I listen to somaFM continuously. It is listener-sponsored streaming radio, meaning that I make regular donations to keep them on the air.I used to be able to just put the URL in Sonos and play somaFM streams. But now it must go through TuneIn, meaning that someone else is making money from somaFM’s free streams. This is unethical, because there is ZERO value-add.Oh, and the ads are ridiculous, annoying, and make me want to ditch my Sonos and get AppleOne.
Nombre d écoute élèves
Bonjour après avoir écouté quelques chansons, parfois pas en entière sonos ce bloque en indiquant que le nombre de chansons écoutées est trop élevé, cela commence à m ennuyer fortement pour rester poli, merci à sonos de régler le problème, je veux et je doit pouvoir disposer de ma musique comme je l entend merci.
I tried to add an internet radio station I liked (via “Manage => Add Radio Station”), but it didn’t work… This sent me down a rabbit hole… So here’s the question that may help me dig out: Is there a guide anywhere, or a ranking, or anything, to help me sort through all the TuneIn, radioPup, etc. stations? For instance, I type in “Bossa Nova”, and there are dozens. But if I get too specific, I get nothing. (For instance, “West African guitar”). There just comes a point in a man’s life when there isn’t time to sample and find what he likes… He knows he needs a guide...

Sons Fives as Studio Monitors
Hi Guys, I wanted to know, if anyone has used fives as studio monitors? Do you guys think, we can use 2 Fives as left and right channels on a studio monitoring sound interface? I would also like to know, fi using 3..5 mm jack to connect to a computer to use 2 Fives as Studio monitor is okay vs. using a 6 mm.? As such Fives don't have a 6.4 mm jack....so I will have to use an adapter and I am fine with that as long as the sound quality does not get affected. Thanks.
whats up with the HIGH volume of ads?
I accept I have to listen to ads if I don’t subscribe to the PRO, Premium, VIP service. That’s fine. What about the volume of the ads? Does SONOS have to crank up the volume so much? It’s jolting! I read another similar comment elsewhere on these pages and the answer was something along the lines of “ it depens [not on us but] on who is serving the ads.” Thanks but I don’t buy it. The high volume ads is an old radio tactic so the excuse is invalid. SONOS: WOULD YOU PLEASE TURN THE VOLUME DOWN FOR THE ADS? or TURN IT UP FOR EVERYTHING!

Sonos and HiFi/Audiophile systems
Since one keeps hearing over and over about Sonos not being a HiFi system - leave alone a audiophile one, whatever that means - I thought of starting a conversation on the subject. Perhaps there will no takers…but most of us are locked down, so let’s see:-).To start the ball rolling, for those that do NOT see the best of Sonos - a 5 pair + Sub - to be worthy of the HiFi label, can we hear from you specifying the cheapest system that you have found to be HiFi, playing in the same room and using the same source music files used for ruling out Sonos? It would help if you named the speakers, and also amp used if the speakers are passive ones, and its cost. And then say, what is it that, in your opinion, confers the HiFi label on that system. Note that there is no reason for something to be considered cheap just in comparison to Sonos price points; it should just be the cheapest System you know that does HiFi. Never mind if it costs less, same or more than the 5 pair+ Sub.
Atmos music is the future?
Ran across this article and thought it was an interesting topic of discussion. https://www.musicradar.com/news/an-audio-engineer-explains-why-dolby-atmos-music-is-definitely-going-to-supersede-stereoDo others agree that atmos is going to supersede stereo? I don’t, for a few different reasons.1 - We have decades of music recorded in stereo, music which is still highly consumed. Attempts to modernize that music in to Atmos (Tidal) simply don’t sound right. Of course, that doesn’t mean new music can’t be recorded in atmos, but unlike movies where you can upgrade to atmos and the audio comes out ‘right’, the same can’t be done for music.2 - Live music comes from a stage, not from all around you. I would argue that even when you can an original track in atmos, it doesn’t sound right to the brain since we instinctively know that music comes from a stage. It always has throughout history. Again, movies are different.3 - Keeping with the live music aspect, I don’t know that artists want
Wouldn't it be nice to have a SONOS sound system in your car?
Cadillac has Bose, Lincon has Revel it would be nice to see SONOS in a luxury car brand, preferably American Luxury brand. I personally hope they could swip Lincon from Revel. lol Though Revel is okay as it is a Samsung own brand and connected to JBL, Harmon Kardon, AKG and etc.
Concert Hall-- Full Pieces
I am enjoying the new Sonos radio, and having been listening to the Concert Hall station. it is reasonably well curated and I have heard some good an interesting recordings. However, it becomes almost unlistenable because the station usually plays only one movement from a piece of music. This is fine for background music, but makes it intolerable for serious music discovery. Very few companies take classical music streaming seriously, but Sonos is well positioned to be better. I hope that they up they make their service better for classical enthusiasts.
Downgrade Sonos desktop controller for Windows?
After upgrading to desktop controller version 12.2.2, several of my old Sonos components are no longer visible, and can therefore not be used with the controller. They work fine with the old sonos controller version. Is this Sonos way of trying to force me to throw the older hardwre components away and buy new ones. The old ones works fine.Not even giving me a choice or a heads up when installing the new software controller. Very unethical and immoral. Is this correct Sonos? I hope I’m wrong! I’m aware that new hardware features may not work with old software. Fine, but not supporting old hardware in new software is almost criminal. What if General Motors made their old cars stop working after a software update..?? Best,-tk
Will Sonos support higher quality hi res music?
I’m building my hi res music collection and am wondering if it’s worth the pursue 24bit/96khz quality. Currently Sonos can support up to 24bit/48kHz. However, with the release of S2, people are saying S2 shows the possibility of hi res music support. Is Sonos planning to support higher khz with S2?

I Want Earphones
I have a huge investment in Sonos, with a playbar, a boost, a play 5 (2nd gen), 2 play 3s, a one, 4 play 1s, 2 connect amps, a connect, and now a move. I absolutely LOVE the ability to move around the house and have the same thing playing in all or any rooms, or different things playing in various rooms. Unfortunately, not all the people in my household appreciate music as much as I do, and often balk at anything playing anywhere at all. I would rather get rid of some of them before any of my Sonos gear, but alas, this is not an option. I also have a huge investment, including time, in my music library, and all geared towards use with Sonos. If I can’t listen to Sonos at times due to others being home and not wanting to hear it, my music enjoyment is then sharply limited to what I have stored in my phone and through crappy earphones, which I would rather not wear at all. Now, with the advent of the Move, it would seem that all the elements are there for Sonos to apply that technol
