I have adjusted the bass and treble setting on the sonos equalise within the app and uncheck the loudness option but it does not change the bass distortion I hear during play back of some songs, in particular dance tunes. I have two plays 1's and the others fine, any suggestions.
Can we have a way to set-up Play1 for "small rooms" so that "spoken word" or "talk radio" can be heard over the shower water without having to crank the volume? I think it has something to do with speaker output power and equalization. I am unable to achieve that through the standard Sonos settings. It prevents me from using Sonos to listen to NPR during morning routines and at bedtime. My old Sony shower Radio (3 C batteries) still beats Sonos Play1 in terms of talk radio shower-ability! Background: I have a small bathroom that I have a Play1 in. I used to use a 15-yr old Sony shower radio (single speaker, 3 C batteries). It was perfect for listening to NPR. I could leave the shower door closed, water running, and bathroom door to bedroom closed and not only clearly hear the radio, but also not wake anyone sleeping in the bedroom. Now that I'm using Play1 in the bathroom, I have to turn the volume to near 100% to make sense of the "talk" on NPR or other spoken word media.
My Audio system is 100% Sonos. BUT we need an outdoor solution. Any of the existing speakers would work, just need a weatherproof enclosure.

Hi, I have a sonos system. I use the system to play music from my Spotify account. One of my speakers have been stolen. I notice today when using spotify on my computer, that the music ends with the notification that my account are used elsewhere. Is it true that my account are stored in the stolen PLAY:1, and is it possible to use that account as long as i don't change my password? One more delicate question is if you think there is possible for Sonos or Spotify to trace the location of the stolen speaker? regards /Thomas
How can I create different groups with the surround speakers in my living room? It seems that because they are already in the "living room" group, I cannot create a new group with the play 1 speakers. I would love to be able to use them independently as well, not just a supplement to my playbar and sub.
Apologies if I am overlooking the answer to this query somewhere, but for the life of me I can't seem to see anywhere that specifically addresses this. To the point, any mention I have seen about doing a surround system with the Playbar and other units refers only to Play1's or Play3's as surround speakers. Can the Play5's not be used in a surround configuration with the Playbar?

I've been a loyal customer so long that I'm still using the 100 controllers (over 10 years). Sonos has rolled out a whole lot of very impressive products during that time. That said, the one glaring omission are outdoor speakers (with the built in amplifier to tie into your Sonos network). It would seem to be a very easy solution, and I'm still baffled that there have been no products launched for those of us who like to have music outside! John
I live on the 8th floor of a 12-story condo building and want to use my Sonos for a party on the roof where there's absolutely no Internet connection. Will I have to purchase a separate wireless hotspot device to be able to set my Sonos up there? Or is there a way I can play music on my Sonos without an Internet connection at all? (I can bring my bridge and my laptop, too.) I rely on Spotify for my music as well -- not sure if that makes a difference in whether I'll be able to play songs without Internet connection. EDIT! So I found this thread on the line-in configuration ([url=https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1271]https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1271[/url])... except I don't have an option to select "Line In" under my Settings! There's no line in tab or autoplay menu that I can find at all... help?!
Is it true that the music I stream to my Sonos system goes through servers at Sonos? And that if Sonos' systems go down I won't be able to get music from online services like Spotify and Pandora ? I thought that once I had my equipment set up and running, the streaming was handled by my hardware and my own internet connection. See: http://www.charlestonsw.com/sonos-services-little-secret/
Sonos play 1 led glows at night, it does turn off when the system goes to standby. Can the system be put in to standby sooner?
Hi I have just recently bought sonos play 1 and at night in the bedrooms the led glows, however it does turn off when the system goes to standby some hours later. Can the system be put in to standby sooner?
Hello I just purchased & installed a Play 3 (like it very much) my question: when not i use, is it beneficial to disconnect the power AC ? would that prolong the life of the amp ? The bridge is also "ON" constantly. I prefer not to leave my components on all the time. What is your opinion ?
My sonos has simply died overnight. Fuse on the plug has been checked, plug has been checked in various sockets and it has been linked to a the MAC and separate MAC via ethernet cable all to no avail. Surely a product such as this doesn't simply die after such a short life span? Where can I get it checked? Yes it is out of warranty but I would be shocked if it is a write off at only three years old. Play :3 Serial -00-0E-58-79-90-A6:9 Product - SONOS PLAY:3 (PLAY3-BLK)
Just wondering, for a very small footprint system, how these would compare. The Vanatoo T1's get amazing reviews, and are self-powered like the Play:1's. A bit more at $500/pair plus the Connect, vs $400 for a pair of Play:1's. Perhaps a pair of Play:3's would be a more fair comparison? From what I've read, a pair of Play:1's will outperform a single Play:3 or Play:5 in clarity, and certainly in stereo separation, but somewhat lacking in bass. The Vanatoo's are supposed to be superbly well balanced, with excellent bass for their size. Not quite as clean an installation as a pair of Play:1's, though... Hmmmmmm.... What to do?
we have our Play5 hooked up to the TV via the Line-in connection. my daughter is playing an Xbox, but we have our Sonos speakers (the Play5 & 2 paired play3's) playing Music (radio) via a computer, so she has no sound. about every 10 minutes the Sonos system defaults to the Line-in connection?, stopping the music and playing the sound from the TV/Xbox. I did have it so the Play5 was sound from the TV & the paired play3's were playing the music, but again, the Line-in connection defaulted every 10 minutes. stopping the music, and the play3's reverted to TV/Xbox - even without them being grouped to the Play5
Hi all, I've just bought a pair of Sonos Play:1 to join my growing family of Sonos products and I'm moving into a new house so while I'm doing first fix I'd like to look at some neat ways to mount and cable these speakers on the wall. I'd like to avoid seeing cables or plugs, but I dont see any creative solutions out there apart from just taking the standard power cable down through the wall to a remote socket. Hard-wiring into the wall is an option, but by the time you've got a cover plate it's going to look a little unsightly. Anyone got any creative or neat solutions? Thanks, Tom
I have just added the Sonos Playbar to my samsung smart TV and have discovered the lack of DTS functionality through reading this forum. I find it disappointing that the best we can get is a stereo effect through the playbar? My originial search was based on identifying a way of using my existing Onkyo nr509 AV Amp with the playbar however that appears to be a no go option as well. The concept of buying and adding the playbar as a step change to the surround sound system I had has left me feeling I have done the wrong thing? Slightly cheated in a sense too, I hear what Sonos are saying that the majority of content is streamed and agree we use netflix however I also enjoy having a collection of Bluray discs and feel Sonos should fulfil both requirements. If anyone can give us an idea as to when this may be re-considered as it looks like Sonos have closed the subject down from reading through the forums. Do I revert to my old system and return the Playb
I understand Sonos's streaming capabilities are great, but I'm looking for something to distribute sources coming out of my Onkyo TX-NR515. Effectively, I am wondering is, will the Sonos Connect and a Play:3 speaker allow me to broadcast the Onkyo's sources to the Play:3? I know I can go Bridge -> Onkyo, but I (think) I want to go Onkyo -> Connect -> Play:3 and hear whatever I have the Onkyo providing (TV, CD's, etc...). If it can do that, do I also need a Bridge as well, or does the Connect have all the Bridge functionality in it? Thanks in advance
My cat has a habit of turning the sonos on in the middle of the night by stepping on the buttons. A friend has the same problem and solved it by taping the cap from a medicine bottle over the buttons. This is an ugly and inconvenient solution. It would be great if the sonos had a true "off" setting.
