My Sonos Amp Review.

Good points about the ABX test. Using it as part of a testing methodology is quite challenging. There are very very few peer reviewed studies and even then, not enough for a scientific confirmation of...

Mediocre measurements for new Sonos Amp

I agree. It appears the line in performance does not measure well but the streaming side of things is fine. The convenience it brings is incredible. There are not many reviews that measure measure the...

High resolution sound

Kumar, I was also referring to the audiophile world you mentioned :-) I also agree about the last part. Experiments / research is part of what I do for living and hence why I am interested in learni...

High resolution sound

hey pwt, I am really not looking at audiophilia, just trying to learn about the abx test methodology. My comment regarding methodology issues refers to the studies that were linked in this thread abov...

High resolution sound

Kumar, such a world (devoid of healthy scepticism and critical inquiry) sounds quite stifling to me. I prefer environments that encourage learning and discovery even if it means challenging establishe...

High resolution sound

Hi guys, sorry for the delay, tons of work keeping me busy :-(. To clarify, I am personally in favour of the ABX test but (for now) I have reservations on the way it is used and the attempt to reach...

High resolution sound

Sampling frame and sample size requirements are an integral part of research design and research methodology that employs hypothesis testing. They are important for various reasons including the degre...

High resolution sound

In my view the abx is the way forward but the lack of peer reviewed, repeatable studies indicated to me that it is not yet at the gold standard level. The lack of peer reviewed studies is not the only...

Great input and thanks for the links folks :-) I have been doing some reading and it appears there is still some debate on the double blind test methodology: https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/...

Sonos play:1 low bass popping

Great to hear you have managed to correct it in your setup, unfortunately it did not work in my case. I have 4 play one speakers and I have tried running true play numerous times, in different rooms a...

High resolution sound

Totally agree with you, Audiophile sites is exactly what I would like to avoid as I try to educating myself on this area :-). Subjective / perceived listening sometimes makes for fun reading but the...

High resolution sound

Folks, can anyone recommend a few scientific sources that address ABX testing? Trying to research this further and to clarify if the ABX is indeed established as the golden test. I am finding some deb...

Who pre-ordered the new Sonos AMP and what are your plans for it?

Out of curiosity, how do you find switching sound between TV and Music? I remember with my playbar (long time ago), Volume levels between music and TV were very different. Switching to TV required vol...

Will Sonos introduce a Connect product with Airplay introduced or will there be a software update?

John that is very interesting indeed. Can you share a it more on why you thing that a Connect refresh might not be in the development path at all? I guess there is a possibility that sonos is moving a...

Does anyone have experience with the new "works with Sonos" certified Receivers?

So if I understand correctly, audio sounds to be in sync but there is no audio sync adjustment included in those receivers? I have previously tried the Connect with a Yamaha and then a Marantz receive...

Who pre-ordered the new Sonos AMP and what are your plans for it?

Looks fantastic for sure :-). Do you find it sounds bright and in need of significant treble reduction? I don't have personal experience but a number of online reviews suggest this. Is it really so?

Too Many Sonos Speakers. Now what?
Question

You can certainly group the Play 5 with the rest of your Sonos units when playing music :-). If I understand correctly your Sonos Beam, 2 x Sonos ones and Sub, are setup as a your living room surround...

Roon Labs Music Server/Player now works with SONOS speakers

Same here, all good with Roon :-). I am also happy to see it works more reliably now.

Who pre-ordered the new Sonos AMP and what are your plans for it?

If you set the dialogue enhancement on when watching movies, does it stay on when you start streaming music (requiring you to toggle it each time)? I think the sound setup that works for TV / Movie...

Sonos Connect vs Bluesound Node 2 - My Personal Experience

I am super impressed by the upcoming Sonos amp and if it sounds good then it might replace 3 boxes (Streamer, dac, amp) and remove lots of cables :-). Great convenience and functionality it seems. I a...

Airplay 2 volume control and grouping with older devices
Answered

Fantastic :-) many thanks for the feedback

Sonos Connect vs Bluesound Node 2 - My Personal Experience

Agreed, the focus of the study is not amplifier / dac differences so we could not generalise the outcomes to that specifically. The interesting thing however is the comparison of testing stability. Th...

Sonos Connect vs Bluesound Node 2 - My Personal Experience

John B, I also had this good experience with some dac / preamps (e.g. Arcam IrDac, Rega Dac) where they would not introduce delay so all music was in sync. Some other dacs though seem to employ buff...

Sonos Connect vs Bluesound Node 2 - My Personal Experience

For anyone interested in reading about the pros and cons of different approaches to double blind testing methodologies, the following is a peer reviewed article published at the journal of Applied Aco...

Sonos Connect vs Bluesound Node 2 - My Personal Experience

Just to add an additional (individual) perspective: I had both the Bluesound Node 2 and the Sonos Connect (ZP90) for a while recently and attempted to set up a blind comparison. I linked the Node 2 an...
