Wonder if anyone can help out here.I am sending a signal from the Google Home speaker to a group of Sonos speakers via a Chromecast Audio going into the line-in of the Sonos Play:5 speaker. Since some time now the line-in signal would mysteriously disappearBoth Chromecast and Sonos claim the signal is going through but no audio is heard on the Sonos Play:5 speaker. If I reboot the Play:5, the signal returns back, but then it will disappear again after a week or two.I don't quite know what to do here and how to troubleshoot thisThoughts? .
My System Runs flawlessly when the “Associated Product” is a Wired Sonos Play Bar (Gen 1) wired as part of a 5.1 System.Regularly the “Associated Product” switches to a Play 1 (Gen1) on the Sonosmesh. This causes songs to skip to next track halfway through etc … all the regularly sonos issues. How Can I lock the “Associated Product” to a wired ethernet producted??
I have read a few of the questions similar to my issue and tried a number of the recommended fixes, yet I cannot resolve my intermittent audio issues related exclusively to my “Line In” configuration, could use some brain muscle… I have 10 devices linked to my Sonos system along with multiple audio sources from which to hear the sweet sounds of Sonos in pretty much every room of my home. However, no matter where I access my “Line-In” source, I cannot solve this intermittent sound hiccup, going silent from a millisecond to a few seconds at most. Guaranteed to happen on any average 3.5 minute song as an example, and would expect 3-4, maybe more of these quick but painful black outs in this example, but nothing consistent to be clear. Here is the configuration for this source… I create hiking/travel trail review videos as a hobby and spend probably too much time on my PC (Windows 10 OS). I wanted a better audio sound than my PC speakers so I physically installed my Play 3 in the sam
I just got wireless fives and a wireless subwoofer. I’m trying to pair it to my samsung smart tv. They automatically synced to my tv since they are on the same router. I cant get them to play though when watching tv. It doesn’t give me the option to choose them as surround sound. Not sure if I need to get a sound bar. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Among all the units I have, I have two PlayBars. They're good, but I find there isn't much stereo image. I think this is purely because the L and R speaker sets are close together.My suggestion is that for this product and any stereo pair you have an option to enhance the stereo.This can easily be done in DSP by matrixing to L+R and L-R, increasing the gain of the L-R, then matrixing back to L and R.Maybe an option in the app - ideally with an ‘amount’ setting which would control the amount of extra gain applied in DSP to the L-R.There are cleverer ways of enhancing stereo, like only amplifying the L-R when there’s a peak, but I think for most situations, the simple approach would work well.Then we could 'widen' the stereo image.
Hello,When I try to start music playing through the Sonos app nothing happens until I physically press play on the speaker. This occurs on all my speakers (playbar, beam, play1). Once pressing play it seems to work fine while I am using it. It seems to have issues in between uses. I do have Alexa, ring doorbell, etc connected up and it’s possible this occurs after a notification. Any idea why the speakers seem to go offline in between uses of the Sonos app like this?Thank you.
I bought the MOVE to use as a sound source for when we have outdoor movies however we’ve been really frustrated to find out that when you airplay the sound or bluetooth the sound from a movie played on a MacBook Air the sound from the MOVE is at 50% of what it typically would be if you were playing music directly from the app. I called SONOS & they have no idea why it does this. Very frustrating because the MOVE could be ideal for this if it worked at it’s typical volume.
4 years ago I installed a playbase, woofer and 2 alexa-enabled Sonos Ones (1st gen) in my family room. Since in this configuration only one of the two sonos ones will respond to alexa, I think I will relocate one to my study and replace it in the family room with a speaker that is not voice-enabled. I have two questions: 1. what is the best choice of speaker to purchase to substitute the existing sonos one, and 2. Can I configure a single speaker in the study to play mono, or can it only be configured to play either left or right?TIA .... Greg
I have just moved into a house that has some sonos speakers in the ceiling hard wired to a legacy amp. we have got them up and running using the S1 app but after a while realised one of the pair is playing very softly and tinny. I have swapped cables at the amp end and there is no change so assume it is to do with the speaker. the wiring to that looks on so what might the issue be?
Feature:Would be great to have a reminder function in the app for user to bing the Sonos Move back in the house, e.g. an alarm that goes off if the Sonos Move is not back on the charger at a set time like 1amRationale:I do have the Sonos Move for round about 3 months. However, I already forgot the Sonos Move 3- 4 times outside on the terrace of my house. Once of course in pouring rain all night long - all good. A Friend mentioned the same is happening to him.Forgetting the Sonos Move outside Seems to happen when enjoying this great piece of equipment.
I have a house with an excellent wifi system, 8 AMP units hooked to ceiling speakers, and everything plays fine and is reliable.I am trying to add 2 SL-One speakers.They won’t join, I go through the procedures but they never show up in the list of rooms after I am done.I take them to the wifi rack, hard wire them in and they join and work. Unplug them from the Ethernet wire, and they still play in the system. Unplug them from power, take them upstairs, and plug them back in and they are gone.
