The first sonos i started to use is Sonos one. I was really satisfied with this speaker, due to its seamless connectivity to apple tv and apple devices.
Satisfied by the sonos one performance, When i needed to get a portable speaker, decided to get sonos roam, Thinking that it would be the safe bet for a christmas gift this year.
Less than 10 days after getting the Sonos Roam, I’ve this issue where i pause a podcast in midway and when i try to play it again after a break, my Sonos Roam is unable to be detected by my apple device.
[This detection issue is occuring while my device is not in sleep mode and connected to my wifi. There are no network issues, since i’m able to access the internet through other devices and the single strength is quite strong]
I’ve tried the following, trying to troubleshoot this issue:
- Restarted my Sonos Roam
- Restarted my Wifi
- Restarted my apple devices
- logged off and logged back into my podcast app.
- switched off the wifi pairing in my phone and restarted it after a while.
- I’m well within the range of my wifi router, as the other devices that i use from same room, shows super strong wifi connection, (also i experience the same issue, while i place sonos roam just next to my wifi router)
The trouble that i’ve gone through and the time i’ve wasted so far trying to pair the Sonos Roam to my apple/idevices makes me believe that i’ve not bought the right device for the portable use. I’ll be returning the device back in the store soon.
Alas, this christmas I’ve not gotten myself the right gift.
