How to give separate access to my children to the Sonos speakers in their bedrooms?
Is it possible for me to give access to my daughter to be able to control the Play:1 on her bedroom, and to my son to control the other Play:1 that's in his bedroom, while only me would have access to all the Sonos speakers in theentire house? I would like to give access to the children to be able to listen to their music on their tablets and smartphones, but not to the other speakers I have in the living room and in my own bedroom. Thank you.
Sub with Play:5 Gen2
Hello, I have a large open concept main floor. I just added a Sub and 2 x Play:1 to add surround sound with my existing Playbar. I also have 2 x Play:5 gen2 spaced out on the same floor. When playing music now I feel that the 2x Play:5 units are not putting out as much bass now that the Sub has been added to the system. Is this just my imagination or are the Play:5 units detecting the Sub and handing off more bass duties to the Sub?
Turntable cutting in and out.
Just hooked up my turntable/preamp into sonos connect amp. It works fine when the setting are compressed and in and out when uncompressed. I would hate for my system to compress my files. Is there any way to get around this? I would like to get the best sound possible with these speakers. As usual Thanks!

Sonos:Connect - Digital Input
I'm in love with my current SONOS setup, but there is still one device I'd love to connect to my system: my pc. I've tried a Connect to play sound attached to a video (for example from Youtube) through my speakers and while it works, there is a noticable delay (even with all the help settings). If I try the same thing with my Playbar, it works perfectly thanks to the digital input. Isn't it time to release a Connect 2.0? All digital? You have the technology (as proven by the Playbar), it shouldn't be too much problems to put it all together in a new Connect.
Multiple Play:1 speakers, multiple sources
Am I able to connect multiple speakers to different media sources? I currently have 1, Play:1 speaker and a bridge but I want to be able to play music through one speaker along with tv audio or other music through another when I buy a second speaker. Which kind of speaker can i purchase to do this?
Connect Sonos to WiFi without Internet
I have a Sonos Play 1, and I only have a mobile internet connection. When I purchased, I also bought a WiFi Router so I could set up the Sonos and play music, but this WiFi network is not connected to the internet as I only have through my phone. I researched but couldn't find a way to stream music from my Apple Music and TuneIn accounts to my Sonos at home. My question is, how can I stream music and radio from my phone to my Sonos with only a internet connection from my phone? Hope this makes sense. Thanks everyone
Setting up SONOS on a dual band network
Simple question really.... I'm about to set up a Play:1 and Play:3 and have a few questions. My router is a dual band Trendnet TEW-818 transmitting 3 networks 2.4 (b/g/n legacy devices) , 2.4 (n only IP Cams) and 5(n/ac modern hi-speed devices). My PC and android device both connect on the 5Ghz network. Now I know that SONOS runs on 2.4 (b/g) but when I'm setting up the system do I have also have to put one of the devices also on the 2.4 network? And once setup will I be able to use the the PC and android on 5Ghz and still control the speakers? My router automatically passes traffic between all the networks, for example on my Android I can see all devices on my network both wired and wireless regardless of network. Thanks in advance.
Occasional loss of grouping
Hi all I've only had my Sonos system for a week or so, but I'm already noticing the very occasional tendency to lose groupings whilst music is playing. The music will continue playing in one zone usually, with the other stopping completely. Is there any known issue? I assume this is not impacted by other network issues as the network is between the players themselves, correct? Everything is otherwise working perfectly, is no reason to suspect a faulty component as yet. Thanks!
Alarm Group - Controlling Varying Volumes
When I start up a Zone with an alarm, my Play:1 is at a volume that is way beyond comfortable. Since it is linked in a Zone, it seems there is only one master volume for the alarm in this linked group. I know I can change the level after it turns on, but by then the music is already slamming hard on this Play:1 speaker. I am worried that damage will happen to it in the long run. How can I set the alarm volume lower for this particular Play:1 speaker? For this setup. I do NOT have the option to un-link it and the volume level for the other SONOS devices in this group need to stay where they are. Is there a way I could set a MAX volume setting on a particular speaker?
Streaming TV Sound over Sonos 1
I have a modest setup of 2 sonos 1 speakers and a nice smart tv from Samsung. Now i know how to get sound from the TV running on sonos; either by buying Connect or a line in equiped sonos 5 or a playbar. Thing is, all of these options are quite expensive and i rather want to try it out first and then do an investment second. My tv however, being a smart tv, is hooked up to my homenetwork, and is in the same network as my sonos. Would it be possible to hook it up via the network? Its a samsung TV.
Taking a play1 on vacation
Silly question here but if I unplug a play1 speaker from my home system and take it with me to our cabin we have rented on vacation will I be able to connect it to their wireless and use the speaker there? Wifi is open. Should then be able to connect and manage with my phone correct? Thanks in advance for any help.
Disable Play/Pause button to stop my cat from playing music
Please can you provide an option to disable the play/pause button on my Play:1 and Play:5. I can't imagine it will take much development time. My cat tends to walk over the Play/Stop button and starts playing the music on my queue, and then for good measure sits on the volume button. I have come home from work to irate neighbours on several occasions - apparently they don't share his taste in music :)
maximum electric power connect amp
good morning. Fist, sorry for my english. I'd need the maximum power consumption of the sonos connect amp, cause I have an specific line 16A 230v only for 6 connect amp, and I found down 2 times in a month. I'd like to know if is for this, or for another reason. Thanks
Searching for system
Every once in a while and with no changes to my internet connection, on opening the Sonos app I get 'Searching for your system' and then the error' Your system cannot be found'. I have to do a factory reset and a reinstallation of my two Play 5s to get it working again. Sonos support is utter crap - has anyone else experienced this issue and have a fix? TIA.
20% discounts with Verizon Smart Rewards
If you are a Verizon Wireless customer you might have noticed this Smart Rewards program they started a while ago and shill on their customer portal. While generally speaking it's an annoying way to get a very small discount on stuff you probably didn't need, they happen to have pretty much the entire Sonos lineup at 20% off retail prices (plus some number of points that you probably already have). Since Sonos stuff is pretty much never discounted as near as I can tell, this seems like a good deal. And a good way to use reward points that you probably would never have used otherwise. Thought I would mention it.
