Hi, appears this is a common one so apologies in advance.The bass has started distorting sometimes on my One, it's not always and not necessarily on high bass music(I mostly listen to Indie/Rock/Alternative so punchy drums and bass guitar) Its been set to 90% max from the day we bought it, to protect it) and always been setup with Trueplay, then bass and treble turned up to 5 & 7 respectively.I’ve done the usual reset and redo true play but it still does it…...is the speaker dead? If there are any Sonos tech people reading, I submitted diagnostics a few minutes after it did it quite bad recently, ref 566694998, if it helps.Thanks in advance, Mark
I'm considering upgrade pair of One's to 100's and Sonos should offer this plastic base separately because rest of stand is the same and I would to use them with new speakers. I know that it’s not in their interest but sometimes be OK worth more.
Bonjour Voici mon problème Lorsque je dis "alexa met de la musique pour enfant" exemple. Elle reconnaît bien ma voix et me réponse "voici une playlist pour enfant" et puis rien et ce peu importe la demande de musique que je demande.Elle fait comme si elle lançait la musique mais pas de son.... J ai tout remis comme usine puis refait toute l installation. Mais cela ne change rien.... Cela est entrain de me rendre fou 🤪.. Avez vous peut être une idée ? Merci d avance Moderator edit: Google Translate (French):Good morningHere is my problemWhen I say "alexa plays music for children" example. She recognizes my voice well and replies "here's a playlist for children" and then nothing, no matter what music request I ask for.She pretends to start the music but no sound....I put everything back to factory and then redid the whole installation. But that doesn't change anything....This is driving me crazy..Do you maybe have an idea?Thanks in advance
My living room is 800 sq feet. With 2 Sonos One and a Sub I cover part of it . Increasing volume or going for 2 Sonia Five wouldn’t change so much as I willl have a size too loud and the rest too silent . With Sonia Era 300 and spatial audio , any possibility to place 3 or for units and have Trueplay finding a way to fill the entire room una an optimized way ?? Thanks ! giovanni
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!
Hey team. We have 8 speakers connected to reception and treatment rooms. A few irritating issues we can’t troubleshoot. 1. Our clinic iPad app refuses to connect to the speakers despite being logged onto the same system. 2. Most of the rooms are connected to the “helm”. One or two therapists play their own playlists in their room via their phones. When they connect to just that speaker, the whole system either stops or goes haywire. 3. Sometimes we get an unstable internet connection for the system despite the rest of the internet and the solo connected therapists not having an issue. 4. When songs connect, they play for 5 seconds then skip to another song. Mumford and sons isn’t supposed to sound like EDM. Please help. Appreciation in advance.
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
Replace my Sonos Gen one ( pair) with a pair of Era 100. Really pleased with the new speakers. Worth the upgrade in my opinion. The setup was not straightforward. Initially used my phone to set up the first speaker only to have an error message ‘ another App using airplay’ Could not work that out so I used my iPad. All went OK. There was an issue with Alexa in that I couldn’t get Alexa to work with the new speakers. Seems that was my fault for trying to add the new speakers with the same room name I used on the Sonos ones. Changed the room name and all was well. Overall I am impressed with the pair of Era 100. They sound terrific as a stereo pair.
This post is rather long. Its purpose is to educate. Not specifically about a Sonos product or business model; but more so in the use of certain terms when expressing one’s opinion. This is a community where members come to learn and share their opinions/ideas. The words we use as just as important to properly convey the message; as is the message itself.The post in question is titled “Playbar + Era 300. In that post the terms “Profit and Sustainability” were used regarding Sonos in a not so flattering manner. If you continue reading; below are my comments taken from the subject post…. ….Not to fault the author; but to speak on how the comments in this thread about making the Playbar compatible with the Era 300’s; or vise versa, have (unsupportively) crossed into areas that accuse Sonos of being a “profiteer” and reneging on its pledge of “product sustainability”. Not So. You can call me a Sonos “Fanboy” if you like...that’s your prerogative.Let’s talk about “Profit” and “Sustainabilit
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!
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.
Better Title for this post: Audio Drops after 5 Minutes of either Podcast or songs longer than 5 minutesFirst of all, this is more of a summary\conversation\Review vs an actual question. I really don’t want this topic shelved as it often does by moderators. There is no fix as far as I can tell.I have a Play5 Gen 1 device which worked great up until the S2 Controller was released. Not sure what happened but once S2 was released, my Play5 Gen 1 started dropping audio podcasts after about 5 mintues. Music tends to play fine as long as it is 5 mintues or less. Full disclosure: I play Podcasts via Spotify and I choose my Play5 from the list of available output options. To be fair: SONOS has been very helpful and we have tried several fixes with the assistance of SONOS tech support. The latest was to connect my Play5 via Ethernet cable to my Uverse Router which worked for about a day.SONOS was nice enough to offer up a 20% discount on the new Play5 which is nice but the base price is about
Hi everybody!I wanted to share something about my Sub. Yesterday my wife, while in the kitchen, decided to kill a insect on a vaulted ceiling using a two pound flour bag. Little that she knew, the bag bursted (just a tiny split, not all the way) and some of the flour got on the top of my Sub Gen2 and around it. I did not see anything in the Sub. After I experienced a tiny stroke :-), I grabbed the vacuum cleaner and cleaned the mess. Then I’ve put Master and Commander, Sub setting plus 10 and told my kids to go into their room. We did laugh about it how a split second moment of anger or simply not thinking things through could give you some not needed work. Now for the serious part.Do you think anything could have happen? How is the Sub constructed, Where is the opening (besides the obvious rectangular one)? Do you think that flour can compare to dust in consistency and the ability to enter the SUB? Is it wise to turn the Sub upside down and try to shake it or vacuum some more? P.S. My
When playing on-demand streaming music via Spotify or another source I can skip or rewind tracks using the Next/Previous touch controls on the top of my Sonos. Thus I can change the music without getting my phone out or going to a computer or yelling at Alexa, ect. When listening a streaming radio station, the Next/Previous controls do nothing except flash an orange error light. I would love to be able to use Next/Previous touch controls to cycle through my saved streaming stations!My $20 FM radio can change stations without requiring the use of a smart phone app, it will be cool if my Sonos could do that too! 😁
