Hi all Good people. During Black Week the Sub mini was down around $100 and i was able to get one.First i add it to my livingroom downstairs along with the Playbase&Ikea BS. I try different placement and try multiple Truplay-runs. Sound was like ok,but nothing more. I really enjoy this room even without the Sub mini. I think Playbase is a great soundbar. Anyway…. Then i moved the Sub mini upstairs and integrade it with the Beam Gen2& Era 100…and i got a Ikea BS stereopair as well. The Sub mini is placed in the front corner of the room. Let me say it like this: the Sub mini outplay Gen3 by far….i’m in LOVE. The tight punch,the dynamic…just WOW. Yes,i’m talking bout performance with Music,not TV/Film/Movies. Just pure enjoyable music. And the size….to be honest,i thought the Sub mini was a small unit….it’s not. It’s somehow bigger than i imagine.I have not watch any movies,only Youtube,and the sound is good(enough). I probobly gonna watch some films in the near future,but i think
Would love for Sonos to collaborate with someone to develop headphones specifically to be used with the system and connected like a Sonos One speaker. Anything like this in the works? If not, do you recommend a headphone to use for nighttime listening that doesn’t take a technician to figure out?
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
Hi, losing the will with the reliability of my sonos system. I run a split system with newer s2 compatible products and then 2 old Gen 1 play 5s on the s1 as a separate network. All was well till about a month ago when the play 5s just stopped working. I have tried everything rebooting, restarting routers, running it wired and unwired. When I do a complete restart, delete and reboot the app, reset the speaker and do a new set up, the app recognises the speaker and the network initially, it creates the Sonos wifi network temporarily but when you then need to select the wifi network again that’s where it stops. I have a split band 2.4 and 5ghz router and am selecting the 2.4 as I know Gen 1 is incompatible with 5 ghz. As I work long hours attempting to call Sonos with their opening hours (no eves and weekends) is difficult. Please help??!
Hello Everyone,We will be installing in a Museum gallery several SONOS 5 speakers. They will be above guests heads on one of the walls of the gallery and will require a secondary safety mechanism in case the mount fails.Usually, we would attach a safety cable between the speaker and the mounting surface, but I have not found a mounting point on the speaker to do this. Short of drilling a hole in the cabinet (which would void the warranty) or using some sort of super adhesive mount that could hold the weight of the speaker (might also void the warranty), I am kind of short on ideas.If anyone has experience with this, I would appreciate any and all suggestions.Thank you.
I know this has been discussed earlier in general, but couldn’t find this specific detail mentioned, so: why not allow pairing Sub with Move with the limitation, that Move needs to be in it’s charging base. Idea here is obviously that the charging base would be in static location, and if you lift the Move from it’s charging base, it would automatically disconnect the Sub. And when placing back, it would automatically reconnect to Sub.This is the kind of smart audio I’d expect from Sonos.
I have just bought nice tall and deep bedside tables for the lamps (the lamps sound much better on these rigid wooden cabinets than the previous flimsy metal ones). I am considering permanently fixing them to the tables, so there is no chance to accidentally knock them off. I just wondered it there was an optimal distance to place them from the wall. I appreciate the sound is modified / enhanced by setting them up with truetone, but if I position them correctly in the first place, sound should be even better. Thanks
I recently picked up a Connect(gen1) with the hope of playing my turntable through my Sonos speakers (play1's) and my audio amp. So the TT goes into phono preamp into the connect and out to the amp. Playing the TT via the Connect into the amp, no problem. Playing the TT through the Connect to the play1's no problem. However when I group the room with the connect to the room with the play1's the output to the amp drops to virtually zero while the play1's are fine. Have fiddled with variable/fixed volume and the source level sensitivity to no dramatic effect.I am running S1with no issues. Although I am using Google mesh through out the house I have set up the Sonos gear to be on it’s own mesh. Love to hear some thoughts, Cheer, David
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.
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.
Yesterday my Beam stopped properly responding to Spotify requests whether they were Alexa-voice requests or directly through the Spotify app. It starts to play after a LONG while then stops. The starts again. Very odd. Nothing has changed. Not having this issue with my other Sonos One
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.
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
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.
