I’d like to be able to have the MOVE permanently on the second floor of my house. The receiver is on an upper floor and I want to keep it there. I have only a turntable connected to the Onkyo. Will I be able to connect via Bluetooth or WiFi to the speaker? (The Onkyo has WiFi and Bluetooth capability). I didn’t find an answer to this question specifically in the Support and I apologize if I’m missing it. If I can’t connect in this scenario, what do I need to do? Thanks!
I have iPhone S2 app move speaker that I want to use on the porch. it plays but goes offline in my app so I can’t control it. if I turn off and on again it will show up in the app but goes offline after a little while but plays so WiFi connection is there. anyone know what to do?
I have a small house (840 square feet/78 square meters) with a Sonos One and a Sonos Move, both connected through Amazon Echo (Alexa). When I play music (grouped or ungrouped, using Alexa or using the App, using Amazon Music, Spotify, or Sirius XM as source), the One begins playing immediately, but the Move will take up to 45 seconds before any sound happens. I can be standing right next to the Move, say “Alexa, play <song title>,” and it will respond from that speaker - “Playing <song title> by <artist> from Amazon Music,” and it will take 30-45 seconds for any sound to come out, and it will be 30-45 seconds into the song. If the two speakers are grouped, I’ll hear the first part of the song playing on the Sonos One, and the Move will eventually join the song already in progress.This also happens if I switch music - Don’t like the vibe, so I change stations or playlists. The One picks up right away but the Move takes a while. Once it’s playing there are zero issues -
I've been gifted a roam SL for my birthday, I'm pretty tech minded but cannot for the life set it up. I spoke to live chat yesterday but they were about much use as a chocolate fire guard. Upon setting up the roam via the app, it goes through the discovery, the audio PIN but then it just gets stuck on connecting .I thought it may be issues with my mesh network so tried again connecting to my main router instead. I get to the same point again. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, tried setting up a new account with a different email but still nothing. For something of this price bracket I expected more Any ideas on what to do? Or should I just admit defeat and send it back and replace with something more reliable Thanks
Just bought a roam yesterday. I’m having issues with the Wi-Fi not connecting and the device not being recognized by my phone app. I literally have to reset my router anytime I wanna use it… Also, as an aside, the power button sucks and it sucks that it’s combined with the Bluetooth pairing. Think I might return the device.
Hi,I recently got a roam to add to my sonos collection. I was able to easily connect it yesterday. I shut it off after I was done. Now when I turn it back on it won’t reconnect to my sonos app (android 12 beta, pixel 4xl). I can connect it to my phone via bluetooth and it works, however. I have a mesh network with tp link deco. Thanks!
Afternoon all.Bought a Roam on pre order ages back. It arrived in good time, was installed and worked a treat. A week later I lost it! Long story. Yesterday it turned up …. another long story.It no longer shows in my S2 app or environment. So I thought, lets add it again. But no joy.Just to add, I bought a Sonos wireless charger base for it, charged it and that seems be working well.But I cannot get it to show the green light. If I remember well, if I get to that point, the app should see it?I can get it to flash blue. I can get it to show white light. But I’m missing something in re-adding it to my environment.Appreciate any advice or procedure or link that can get me up and listening again.Many thanks in advance
HelloI have a problem with my roamWhen i turn it on and press play it connects to the last radio station, so it usese the wifi but when i try to access the setings from the sonos app it just sees it ppwer off.What can i do pls?Already tryed the 12 swconds reset and did nothing.
I have a Sonos S1 system at home with a Play 3 and Play 5. I realize these are older products. I have downloaded the S2 controller to try to add the Sonos Roam I purchased today.It’s not letting me add it as it’s showing my S1 products and labeling them incompatible. I’m not seeing Roam at all (it’s powered on). Don’t really know what to do at this point.
My Move, out of nowhere, started playing these mixed voices, like a records playing backwords. My wife was so creeped out, she wants to throw every Sonos we have in the whole house in the trash and might them on fire. It is super creepy. Seriously. WTF is going on. She paused it, then unpaused to make the video, but these sounds started in the bathroom while we were watching TV in the bedroom. Here is a YouTube short I made of it, cause I can't post a video here, only pictures. https://youtube.com/shorts/OJ-869INwEs?feature=share
I’ve recently been gifted a Sonos Roam… Can anyone tell me if I purchase the Qi wireless charger, will the Sonos Roam be able to be left powered on permanently and act as a 24/7 Wi-Fi speaker without auto powering off?Ideally want to use it for 24/7 voice assistant for Alexa and not have to manually power it on to use.Thanks
A few days ago I bought a move 2 which I am having a bit of a hard time with.It is a very nasal sounding bass boom box that can be used for talk radio when the bass is turned all the way down and trueplay and loudness are not activated.Music is next to impossible to listen to if it is not simple jazz music without vocals.Has anyone else had this experience with Move 2 ? Just a follow-up to my post.After I did a factory reset of my brand new Move 2, the sound is ok.But in my opinion the very low bass and midrange are a bit too dominant, but I hope this will be adjusted in future software updates.

Hi My Move arrived this morning, but so far it seems pretty terrible from a connectivity perspective:It constantly tells me the system can’t be found, I can’t connect my Amazon Music service (despite getting the Amazon message saying it had been approved).It’s currently working, connected to my boyfriend’s phone and playing via bluetooth, but surely my app should be able to find the system? It’s just constantly whirring on the ‘searching’ wheelI’m so disappointed!
I want to put a roam under the overhang on my front porch and charge via a solar panel similar to my ring camera. I’m live in Santa Barbara (home of Sonos!) so weather isn't that much a factor but my 2 questions are: Would the solar panel (2-5W) charge the roam? I wouldn’t be using it a lot but didnt know if it needs to be a certain watt size to take a charge. can the roam remain “on” so i dont have to turn it on each time similar to my move or other sonos products.
Running a Sonos Move using Boost on a BT Home Hub 6 router. The Move shows a white light and is on my system on the Sonia webpage but has disappeared from app. Have done a factory reset , chatted on help chat service but can’t fix it. Any idea what the issue is? I run two Sonos speakers and a Sonos connect in the same room perfectly so not my WiFi, seems a Sonos Move issue....
I have many Sonos products including the Move and the Move ring charger. Just noticed the lights blinking red while sitting in the charger. Tried to plug it in and gives me the orange blinking I'm charging lights.The app says, "battery depleted." Please help!I'm afraid this thing is dead.
Boy, I thought this would be an easy question to find an answer for. I found the same or similar question being asked in multiple ways, but none of the answers so far seem to work. I suspect this is a very basic question, so apologies in advance . . . I have an existing Sonos setup that I am using primarily for home theater & music listening. Gen2 Beam, Sub, two Play:1s. Pretty typical.I have just purchased my first Move and I’ve set it up as an independent speaker/room called “Move” (the default).I would like to add the Move to the existing setup so that it works as part of the home theater group - its main position is going to be in the dining room half of a large living/dining room area.But I also want to use this as an indi speaker when outside or upstairs in a different room. Pretty simple, eh?I thought I could accomplish this flexibility by setting up Groups on the Sonos app, but the app tells me that I need at least three rooms to begin employing groups in the way that
I have been trying to get my Sonos Move to connect to my app or the internet for a few days now. It will connect to one or the other, but not to both. I have restarted it, trouble shooted, anything the troubleshooting part of the Sonos website told me to do. Eventually it tells me “connected, you may not see it on the system, you can fix that in the app” and it makes me start all over again.
Is it possible to use a Trueplay device (a Roam for example) to configure your wider system, rather than use an iPhone?Reason I ask is I no longer have an iPhone after I left my last job, and I use personally use Android. So I no longer have a mobile phone that works with Trueplay. (my wife still has an ancient iPhone, so can use that if I really need to). But I do have a trueplay speaker - the Roam - in the kitchen.Anyway to use the mic from the Roam to configure my Living Room set up?
