This article discusses how to add your speakers to an existing system. If you are taking your speaker to another location that does not have an existing Sonos system in place, these instructions will not apply to you. In that case, you can simply set up a new Sonos system. How do we get your speakers added to another system? Say, at a friend or family member’s house.This is a fairly straightforward process and should not take too long. Sonos products can remember the credentials for up to 16 wireless networks. When you bring your device home, it will automatically reconnect to your WiFi network. This is unless you Factory Reset your Sonos device, which we do not recommend. Things you will need before you get started: The WiFi password of this “new” network. The network needs to have an existing Sonos system set up already. You will need to have the owner of this system’s Sonos account information at hand. The steps to take: Connect your mobile device (that has the Sonos app insta
I have 2 x Sonos Play:1 s which apparently won’t connect to Apple Airplay. I like Airplay and use it with other systems. I was advised by Sonos that if I had a Sonos device that was compatible with Airplay I could group this with the Sonos Play:1s making them Airplay compatible. I have purchased a Sonos Roam SL in order to make the Play:1 airplay compatible and have grouped the 3 devices together. The result is not was expected, while the Roam SL connects well to Airplay, the Play:1s do not, they constantly connect and disconnect when steaming music, even when they are next to each other. What can be done to resolve this?
Hello there What do you think will be the next product from Ikea/Sonos?I hope for a Gen 2 of the frame and the replaceble “picture” get new faces……and Ikea get the ones they offer in stock.Same for the BookShelfs…need new front grills and get them in stockMaybe there will be a smaller and a bigger frame than it is today….like two options.
Aka daisy chain. Many cheap bluetooth speakers can do this so it would be disappointing if the Roam can't. I do know that two Roams will not do stereo in bluetooth but I can't seem to find anywhere if it even supports two Roams or more in mono.Thanks
Hi Folks👋 Orginal Sonos stands for Era 100/300: Are they simmilar,only different is shape of attachment of base to speaker.So in reality i can purcase what so ever stand(100 or 300) and i could just change the top depending on if i got the 100’s or the 300’s….you follow me?For example in my case,i got the 100’s on stands. I will purcase the 300’s but if i purcase the stamds i can just remove the top part from the 300-stand over to my allready mounted 100’s?Then my next question will be: If they match as in Q1⬆️,why does not Sonos offering this item? Need to buy the complete kit with the stands.Or does the “Sonos wall-mount” fit on a stand as well(problem solved?).
As someone who primarily listens to rock music, a significant portion of the sound of the music that I listen to comes from the mid range. On Sonos speakers, the bass sounds great and the treble sounds great, but the mid range is barely audible. That's where all of the guitars are, along with the vocals a lot of the time. This leads to the music sounding muddy and lifeless.I love Sonos speakers and I’ve been a customer for years. I’ve told many people about Sonos, singing it’s praises. I think they’re high quality speakers, the features are absolutely fantastic and they’re aesthetically pleasing as well. I would love to be a lifelong customer of Sonos, outfitting every room with a Sonos setup. However, if Sonos does not make changes to accommodate the needs of listeners of genres that require good mid range frequency response, (and I would argue that all genres do, actually, it’s just more noticeable in some than in others), then unfortunately I will have to transition to another brand
When playing on-demand streaming music via Spotify or another source I can skip or rewind tracks using the Next/Previous touch controls on the top of my Sonos. Thus I can change the music without getting my phone out or going to a computer or yelling at Alexa, ect. When listening a streaming radio station, the Next/Previous controls do nothing except flash an orange error light. I would love to be able to use Next/Previous touch controls to cycle through my saved streaming stations!My $20 FM radio can change stations without requiring the use of a smart phone app, it will be cool if my Sonos could do that too! 😁
Hi friends,Name is Johnny, a severely disabled guy retired in a nursing home in W--s--M. After many trials with voice and bluetooth speakers and not enjoying them, I found an old Sonos zone player covered in dust at the back of a 2nd hand shop, literally going for a song!:). Struggled home with it in my wheelchair (weighs 5kg!), cleaned it and installed s1 app. After doing a factory reset, the app found the speaker 1st time, connected to the home's secure WiFi and performed a system update faultlessly.After adding my music service and alll my fav radio stations to the app and ticking the uncompressed setting, I enjoyed a wonderful and varied 6hr listen, which helps with my pain and discomfort, without a hint of strain, and not one WIFI dropout:).Yes I know, the audio is not as good as the later models, or high res, nor is it supported anymore. However, For a beguiling and gentle long listen, there are few to match even an old Sonos:). So if your budget is tight please don't dismiss t
I finally got round to getting my parents Sonos system around their house. Its working very well, with one exception : the Sonos Port. It is set up and registered in the Sonos app, with a CD player connected to the line-in connection on the Port. However, I cannot find the right command to play the Sonos Port source via one of the Era 100 speakers. The Port is in the "Lounge" and the line-in on it is called "CD Player", and the Era 100 is in the "Kitchen". I've tried commands like; "Hey Sonos, play music from the CD Player in the Kitchen" "Hey Sonos, play music from the Lounge in the Kitchen" "Hey Sonos, play music from the CD Player in the Lounge on the Kitchen" I've googled, and there isn't much on guidance on the right voice commands to use, and I've looked in the app and cannot seem to get them to work. I can combine the two sources in the app, but the CD Player music still does not play in the Kitchen. Can anyone give me some guidance on this? I feel like I am missing something
While I love the sound of my Sonos, I’m at wits end with it. Without fail it will lose connectivity to either one set or another. Everything is connected to a single network that is always on. But still, ‘we can’t find your system’, restart everything, restart your router, start the $%#@ over. So every week or two I have to set everything back up. Anyone having this issue and find a fix?The routine basically ends up with me having to do factory resets and then put the system together again. This will last for anything between a few days and a few weeks.Would greatly appreciate any help!!
Bonjour à tous je viens d’offrir une enceinte sonos one sl à mon mari. Il souhaitait une enceinte connectée mais je regarde le site sonos et je crains que ce ne soit pas une enceinte connectée je me trompe ? Je l’ai achetée chez Darty et ils indiquent que c’est compatible Alexa et Google j’ai un doute Merci à tous
I recently put my small Sonos system in place on our patio: a Roam that lives outside in a dock in the warmer months paired with an Amp that is hooked into to Sonance speakers. Its a simple system and we are really happy with the audio quality from it.The reason we wanted the Roam paired with the Amp was to give voice control to the system. In a paired group we get exactly what we wanted. Only trouble comes when the power goes out, we have to go back into the amp and manually pair the devices again. I have seen a few posts of users with similar problems. Is there some kind of permanent solution to this? Overall we are very happy with our system, this is one of the few frustrations we have had.A couple of threads I saw:Keep device groups after power cycle | Sonos CommunityKeep the group after a power loss | Sonos Community
Hey all - Just got my Era 100s and working on setting two up as a stereo pair. I have the line in adapter connected to one and am attempting to adjust the delay setting from 2000ms to 75ms in the Sonos app, but when I choose 75ms, the checkmark just jumps back to 2000ms. I’ve deleted and re-installed the app, power cycled the speakers, adjusted the source level setting, nothing seems to make a difference.
Hey everyone,I’m planning to buy a pair of Sonos Five that I will dedicate to music only.I want to connect both speakers to my TV but how is it possible with only 1 jack 3.5mm port on my TV ?I’ve also read on the forum that these speakers are not meant to be connected to a TV as it can cause some delays. Is it a big issue in my case ? I will listen DJ sets from YouTube mainly, will it be noticeable ? Will the sound quality be affected ?I do not want to buy a Sonos soundbar as I already have a Samsung one connected to this TV that I dedicate only for moviesI was thinking of a solution but I don’t know if it’s a good one : Buying a Sonos AMP that I will use to connect my TV through arc and Sonos Five speakers through wifi ? Is it possible ? (it might be a very expensive solution tho… if it’s working) Thanks for your help

The spouse uninstalled and installed the Sonos and during that process the upgrade to S2 happened and I did not want that to happen. GRRRRR As my play 5 is not compatiable. So, I’ve moved on from that situation/frustration and have decided to continue to use S2 instead of S1 after resetting most of my speaker/sub/boost (which is a lot) and trying to downgrade back to S1. This is where the frustration turns to Sonos! This should not be that difficult. On the to problem:In my effort to rebuild my Sonos environments/rooms in S2 there are two speakers that were working just the day before the spouse unknowingly updated everything to S2 that will not connect to my S2. The reason they are not connecting is because they will not reset…. I follow the steps as I did with the numerous other speakers; however, these two will not turn to flashing green - I still tried to add them anyway and S2 does pick them up and goes through the step to add them only to have a hard stop at the speaker s
