My original Roam died and has been replaced under warranty. Since the problems seemed to be power related, I’m thinking of only using this one on USB-C and keeping the wireless charger in a drawer. Is this paranoid? The original would regularly drain faster than it’d charge on the wireless pad but the new one seems to be behaving and I was wondering what experiences everyone else had. I may even try out the voice assistant again on USB-C with this guy, it killed the battery faster than anything else on the first one.
Buyed my Roam the 01/07/2021, worked good except for the sound stuttering constantly when scrolling Youtube on my phone.Now the product is completly unusable, turns itself off after a few minutes for no reasons, sometimes lower the volume despite having no volume limitation in the settings (happens with both my phone and computer).I tried doing the reset, changing settings like the surround or autoconnection but nothing worked.App is up to date, account connected, there’s no voice assistant linked.I sent a report after the shut down and restart so you guys can check what’s going on inside : 978345758
The Sonos Roam is constantly dropping from my home PC and iPhone. Yes, it’s set up properly via wifi with the Sonos app. Yes, I follow the instructions on the Sonos site (incl. factory reset). Yes, it’s fully charged. Etc, etc. I even get it to work sometimes (for several consecutive days)...until it doesn’t (dropping randomly with me doing absolutely nothing).I have looked in several Sonos community threads to investigate and a lot of feedback is not helpful (things I already did repeatedly) and usually condescending (the equivalent of “try ctrl-alt-del you dolt”).My gripes -Why does my Roam keep dropping randomly when using Bluetooth (on my phone or PC) - Actually, don’t answer this - I give up. Why does the Roam not have a Bluetooth button if it is intended to be primarily a Bluetooth device (using the on/off button to pair the device is an idiotic design flaw in my view)? Why do I need to link it with my wifi to get it started in any case (few if any other Bluetooth-enabled speaker
We use our Roam to play white noise in our daughters room. The speaker is set up in her room on the wireless charger. Previously it always worked fine, and then now it randomly just drops out and appears as “not connected” in the Sonos app. It’ll play for an hour or so, and then it disappears. Hard rebooting the speaker via the button on the back returns it to the app and makes it usable again, but it’ll play for another hour or so and then randomly stop and disappear. For reference: my home sonos system runs on Sonosnet channel 6
Why isn't stereo pairing via Bluetooth available on either the Move or Roam?I have Bluetooth speakers from 2015 that cost $50 each that have stereo pairing capability. I spent over $850 on a pair of Move's and was shocked to find they didn't have this capability. It's a little mind boggling of an audio tech leader (and premium priced) Sonos product. I'd be interested in purchasing a pair of the new Roam's, but without Bluetooth stereo pairing capability, I'm going to pass. My primary use for these would be the beach, which obviously doesn't have Wi-Fi. Are there any plans to add Bluetooth stereo pairing capability to the Roam or Move? If not, why?
I am connected to a Vizio 65” with ethernet cable connected to Arc and sub with move speaker. WiFi is located in the same room. While watching tv, the sound comes out of Arc perfect, does not cut out. However, the move speaker sound is “pulsing”. it literally cuts in/out about every second or two. What am i doing wrong?
Bonjour.Est il possible de connecter ma sonos move avec un cable ethernet à mon routeur, à l’aide d’un adaptateur pour cable usb-c ? (pour éviter une connexion en wifi).la connexion wifi fonctionne très bien, mais quand je bascule sur le bluetooth, la connexion wifi de la PS4 de mon fils se perd.Merci.
I searched and did not see this answered. I have two (2) Sonos Move (and a Sonos Ray, but not consequential for this question). My music service is ITunes. How do I play ITunes to both Sonos Move, simultaneously? I was told you could do this, which is why I invested in a 2nd Move. Seems only SONOS Radio allows simultaneous play?
as per this thread:my roam turns itself on even though I followed the instructions and a) held the power button for 7-10 seconds until it made the tone and powered down and b) enabled battery saver in the app.My roam was “off” as per instructions (tone and battery saver) and sitting on a charging pad and when I returned home from work it is there with all it’s lights on.Why won’t it stay off?
Why is the NFC not utilized more than on "setup" on the Sonos Roam? I see that the device supposedly uses NFC for set-up, although I don't remember having to turn my device on or hold it nearby my phone for set-up. Anyway, even if it uses it for that, why not also use the NFC capability to make the Roam even more convenient a device post-setup?I have this pair of Cowin E7 Bluetooth Headphones that have NFC in them and when both my phone has Bluetooth and NFC turned on and I tap my phone to the headphones, they automatically connect to each other. It would be really neat if this also worked with the Sonos Roam, since it seems like the technology is in there to be able to do that and it isn't even necessary for what it says it is being used for. Perhaps this could be a software fix? Just update the NFC transmitter, once it's done with whatever it needs during setup, to communicate that it wants to connect via Bluetooth to the device that is next to it? Would be really neat and be able to
Hi all,Been a few years since I posted so sorry about what could be a silly question. I have just purchased the Move and one (part of a package). Now, as I believe the play 3 has been replaced by the Move, am I assume that the play3 will still work once the Move has been activated?Another question, if the Play3 will still work (which. hopefully I assume it will), will I be able to move this into the lounge and activated with the beam? Or could I locate the Move into the lounge and use it for mulipurpose - Beam & Move and Move by itself
just bought a SONOS Move. Initially concerned that when I took it outside it wouldn’t see my Wi-fi. I hadn’t appreciated it doesn’t support sonosnet. Luckily this isn’t an issue so long a# I set it up on the 2.4Ghz network. The real issue I hadn’t thought of is my controllers (iPad and iPhone) struggle to control the sonos system as the Wi-fi signal is poor. I’ve read loads of questions and answers around using Wi-fi extenders with sonos, mostly concluding buy a sonos bridge (I’ve 2) or a sonos boost. None though about getting the controller working. Obviously sonosnet is invisible to the controllers. So, is there a Wi-fi extender that will work, should it be set up as an AP (probably not as this creates a subnet) or configure as pass through?
