Temporarily adding Sonos speakers to an existing system
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
cant connect sonos one
I am thinking of installing ONE at A business.I have been down to the customer and tested with a sonos on their network but I am unable to connect to it.They have a network with many wireless routers. I have understood that it does not work with Wifi and must go wired.After resetting the device, it appears in the App but won't connect online, I'm on wifi myself with the Sonos app.My question is:To connect sonos in a typical company network, is there something I have to do to IT, open some ports or such? I feel there is a block on the network somewhere. When I connect a PC with a cable, this works fine.
Do you think the new Era 100 is going to fit and look good on the Sanus Outlet Shelf?
Title says it all. Hard to tell from the technical drawings and dimensions of the new Era 100.Kicking off a kitchen remodel and would like a stereo pair of 100’s. Looks like the width of the shelf is good, but I worry about the depth. Want it to look clean and not janky. Because this is going in a kitchen and the outlet shelfs will be mounted against a tile backsplash, I do not want to consider an actual mount that screws through the wall/backsplash. Need ability to remove/upgrade down the road. Era 100 = 7.18in H, 4.72in W, 5.14in DSanus Outlet Shelf = 6.84in H, 4.77in W, 5.32in D
SONOS One SL SetUp
Hi thereI purchased 2no One SLs understanding I’d be able to have 2 speakers in different parts of the house playing the same music.Hadnt quite banked on all the login/app/set up stuff, but ok.Plug them in and let the app find them…...It couldnt. The app told me to connect an ethernet cable. (not supplied)I found one and did this. It works and plays music that I dont have much control over, but ok.But the weirdest thing is the app continually asks me to sign into a gmail account that I dont own. I have uninstalled and reinstalled with my own email address but it wont let me do anything in the app unless I sign into this account that is completely unknown to me. So i’m stuck choosing music from a restricted selection of some random app.To add to the mystery if i try to activate wifi so i can move these speakers away from the ethernet, it does so, but the music doesnt change if no ethernet is connected.Great product! I hope you can give me some tips cos they’re close to going back in the
Sizes of tweeters and woofers in Era 300 and Five
Wondering if anyone knows what’s the size of the tweeters and woofers inside of Era 300 and Five. From the Sonos website, I found that the Era 300 has 4 tweeters and 2 woofers but I would like to know how big they are. Same question for the Five's 3 tweeters and 3 mid-woofers. Many thanks in advance!
14.16 update allows Roams to be able to stay stereo paired when being used with Bluetooth
Only just found out about the 14.16 update allowing Roams to be able to stay stereo paired when being used with Bluetooth (while at home and on a Wi-Fi connection at least). Been testing it out today as I have 2 of the coloured Roams in my kitchen which are used to BT from the PC and my phone. Yes before, I could group them but could not stereo pair them as a long term thing without constantly re-pairing them again and again.Nice that I can stereo pair them now and also use them how I used to. But now of course, I can play tunes via Wi-Fi when not being used with BT.Happy about this!
Disappointed with product changes
Although we are satisfied with the product and it’s quality, I have lived with the very disappointing news that I cannot play my songs stored in my phone. when we purchased the product, this was the one reason we purchased Sonos because we could play the music we have purchased from Apple I tunes. This was the feature we enjoyed most about using Sonos. After being able to do this for a number of years, Sonos and Apple changed there strategies and now the only way we can play our music is with a subscription to Apple Music. This was the only option Sonos offered us to restore our original level of service, allow us to play our music in I tunes from our phone or unless a stand alone Mac PC with I tunes was on in WiFi. Has any one else been disappointed or know of a way to restore to original service? Thank you

Sonos one bluetooth
Hi all I currently have a sonos one and am of the understanding that there is no bluetooth connectivity to connect a device for audio playback. I'm wondering if there is a work around to this. I know I could look to purchase a move or roam and link this to my existing system, seems a bit of a pricy investment considering the cost of One. I was wondering however if this same principle will apply using an alexa device, an echo dot for example witch allows bluetooth playback, with this will I then have the option to mirror this audio on my sonos one? Any help will be appreciated
Connect turntable to a new Sonos One and a CD Changer to a second Sonos Era 100 used as a stereo pair
I have an Audio Technica 120-USB turntable with its own pre-amp that I would like to connect to either a Sonos 5 stereo pair or Sonos Era 100 through the new USB-C connection. Can I connect the turntable to the Sonos 5 or Sonos Era 100 on the left side and have it play in stereo with the matching speaker on the right side of my bookcase. Also, will the turntable sound, once connected to a Sonos Speaker be listenable by streaming to my Sonos Arc in my other main room? Assuming the turntable is connected on the left side speaker, can I then connect a CD changer to the matching Sonos speaker on the right side through the direct USB-C input and if so, will the CDs play in stereo through both speakers. Therefore, when I turn on the CD player, will the Sonos speakers in the room recognize the unit and play, and then, when I turn on the turntable in stead, will the same speakers recognize the turntable through the connection. Will the CD player connection also stream to my Sonos Arc in my
SonosNet & Era 300
Presently have a number of speakers and a sound bar connected to my SonosNet system.Considering purchasing the new Era 300 as an update to my 2 first generation, Sonos one’s. I understand the new Era 300 doesn’t support SonosNet. Do I therefore have to remove all my speakers and sound bar from SonosNet to WiFi to incorporate the new Era300? If so, how do I do that. Removing the Sonos Boost from the system will automatically allow all my speakers to find WiFi?
Era 300 pair to replace Play 3s
Perhaps a question for the Sonos folks.I’m looking to replace a pair of Play 3s in one of my rooms. I’m reluctant to go with Play 5s because of the size. Will two Era 3s be a good alternative? On a related note, if I bought a pair or Era 300s, could I run a phono turntable and CD player into the two available line in ports? Many thanks
What are people using for USB C charger for Sonos Move?
I asked this question over in the sonos reddit forum and others are having same issues so thought I would bring over here.What are people using for their usb charger for the Sonos move? I attempted to use my MacBook pros charger but it didn’t work. I have the 60watt brick but from what I read it should be able to still work.So then I read it might be the cord as they have chips in them and knowing Apple they locked their cord down. So I bought an anker power line 3.1 usb c cable and tried it with the MacBook brick again and it still didn’t work.So before I keep buying and returning curious if anyone has had success with certain chargers with the move. Thanks!
