Hi, and I apologize if this question has been already addressed somewhere in the forums. I will soon be moving into a two bedroom condo, square footage of about 1100 sq. ft. I am thinking about making the jump to Sonos. I definitely want the Sub, but would it be overkill to get two Play 5's or would it be better to save some money and get two Play 3's? I plan to set up the speakers in stereo mode and put them in my living room. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.
I've been thinking how I would make my Sonos One temporarily portable for use on patio for an hour or two. Has anyone tried a portable battery with an AC outlet like this http://a.co/fVsXngp ? Not sure how well it would work or how long it would last but might be an decent option in a pinch.
I posted this in another thread, and saw others mentioning the same thing, but it was marked as an "answered" question, so I'll post it here as well. Yesterday, my Move was sitting on its base (inside, temperature not hot) all day, power off. Went to use it last night and all that is happening is a constantly flashing orange battery light. No response when I long press the power button. Let it sit overnight on the charger, still nothing. The same thing happened a few weeks ago and I happened to stumble across something that worked online (it involved the wifi/BT button), but can't find that info now. I also was never able to find the device to complete the app setup but I never bothered to keep trying at the time. I will call on Monday, but am really annoyed that I can't use this expensive speaker all weekend.
I saw that both One and Play:1 have the same price. They seem quite similar, except that One has voice control. Is there any advantage for Play:1 over One? If not, why are Sonos selling two almost-identical products, with the same price? I'd have expected the Play:1 to be cheaper, or even to be obsoleted, and be completely replace by the One. What am I missing here?
I received my pair of Play:1's a couple of days ago, and set them up as a stereo pair in the living room. I already owned a Play:5, and I'm really disappointed about the sound quality of the Play:1 stereo pair vs. the single Play:5. I hear significant distortion in some songs, and really flat sound overall. I know I cannot expect the sound quality of the Play:5, but based on all the very positive reviews concerning sound quality, and the fact that I set them up as a stereo pair, I expected much better sound quality. I already tried to tweak with loudness and equalizer, but don't get a sound which meets my expectations Has anyone else already experience (positive or negative) with these speakers? I contacted via the web form the Support Desk to see if I can change the speakers for another pair, in case something would be wrong, but I doubt so...
Be warned about all this talk of old speaker compatibility. It is very misleading. I was advised prior to Airplay 2 release about the functionality we were likely to get. It is very limited. Based on that advise I now have mixture of compatible (SONOS ONEs) and in compatible SONOS speakers (PLAY 3, PLAY:1s, PLAYBAR). Firstly if you have ONEs set as surrounds to a PLAYBAR they will not be compatible with Airplay2 as it is a closed group and the ONEs cannot be seen, this is because the PLAYBAR is the lead speaker in that set (not compatible). This negates Airplay 2 completely. (this is what I did in an attempt to provide access to my older speakers throughout the house). The only way I can bring that theatre set into play is by having an additional play ONE (thats 3 now) to drive the airplay2 commands. Also, 'accessing' older speakers by simply having a single SONOS ONE limits your entire network of speakers as it must be part of the group. For instance if room A has a compatible SONOS O
I have just purchased a Play:5 for my new apartment. In addition to listening to music, I would also like to connect it to the TV in our living room. What is the best method for doing this? Also, once connected to TV, will it be easy to toggle between TV Audio and normal music streaming? My roommate has also purchased a Play:3 for the apartment. Will both devices play the TV audio once the Play:5 is connected? Thanks for any and all guidance!
I have a Bose Soundlink Air: https://www.bose.co.uk/en_gb/support/products/portable_speakers_support/soundlink_air.html and would like to connect it to my Sonos system. I already own a Sonos Bridge. Is it possible for me to connect the Bose speaker to the Sonos system? Thanks.
Hi, i have a question regarding my Ikea x Sonos Symfonisk Wifi speaker. Im planning to sell it to a friend because i preordered the new Sonos Roam. What steps i should take to factory reset and wipe all my data from the Device? Also is there anything additional i need to do than just factory resetting the device? Thank you 😊
The [b]minimum volume [/b]on a Play 1 for instance (volume level 1) is [b]too loud [/b]to let the music play as [b]background[/b]. It's "no music" or "too loud music" on volume level 1 Nothing in between. Ideally I could lower the music volume [b]like an old amplifier[/b]. It's as simple as that. We use the Sonos system on the lowest volume side and [b]the minimum volume is just way too high[/b].[u] I'm surprised that nobody else raises this[/u].
Hi, My Harmon Kardon speakers which I use in my study attached to my iMac went pop this week. So I was thinking of starting a move to Sonos, starting with my study and moving to the rest of the house when I can afford it. If you were choosing, would you go for Two Play 3's for true stereo or One Play 5? At the moment its for playing from iTunes as I don't bother with streaming as yet. Your help is appreciated, it might save me spending even more hours reading reviews. Mark
http://www.theverge.com/circuitbreaker/2017/3/7/14828738/sonos-playbase-tv-speaker-soundbar-announced "But home theater enthusiasts might be disappointed with some of the technical details. For one, the Playbase doesn’t support DTS multichannel audio. Neither does the Playbar. Here’s what a company spokesperson had to say about that decision (emphasis ours): For home entertainment, DTS content is only found on physical media such as DVD, Blu-ray and Laserdisc – no video streaming services such as Netflix or Hulu support DTS. Sonos is focused on modern listeners who predominantly stream and because most physical discs encode DTS at bitrates substantially similar to Dolby Digital, we have decided to not support DTS on PLAYBASE as we don’t believe it offers a better listening experience for the majority of owners." I really love my SONOS system. The sound is indeed great, but I cannot understand how it comes that SONOS isn’t paying any attention to all the users that have been cl
So currently I already have a Sonos Move and it sounds amazing! But I'm wondering if I should buy another Move to make a stereo pair, is it actually worth another 400$? So I have 3 options for this situation: 1) I could buy another Move and use for different rooms when I don't need it. And whenever I have a party I can stereo pair them together. That would cost around 400$ more. 2) Because the current sonos move is still refundable, I can refund this one and then I could buy 2 Xtreme 2, which have comparable sounds. The Xtreme 2 is a little lighter, not as smart. That would cost around 600 - 400 = 200$ 3) Or if it's not worth it then I'll just keep the 1 sonos move. Please let me know your opinion about this. Thank you!
I've seen this question a few times, but cannot find a solution and would like my system checked out. I have a Connect, SUB, and three PLAY:5's. The system is set up to have 3 groups, and I run them connected to one another 90% of the time. I have no issues with the services or other inputs, however, my TV and streaming inputs are a hit-or-miss thing. When I last moved, I upgraded my internet signal and speed to be at 100mbps and I have connected the CONNECT with ethernet directly to the modem/router, so that shouldn't be an issue. I have line in coming from either the TV or from the cable box. In both cases, every once in a while, I get a garbled/cutting out of the sound. It recovers, but it is extremely annoying. I have to keep it on Automatic to have a decent watching experience, as if i change compression, the lip sync is terrible. I sent some diagnostics to the support team and have usage data on, so im hoping you can see that information and make an assessment.
Hey there, Looking for a bit of info regarding the new Sonos ONE with Alexa. I currently have my Sonos PLAY 1's mounted on brackets in the corners of my living room for surround sound. Will the Sonos ONE be able to mount on the same wall bracket or will there be a different way to mount it? Thanks for any replies. Cheers, Alan
I have sold my Sonos system. Not because I do not love it; but because I do. But where I moved to I have no land lines for internet. Is there anything I need to do with my account. Since my devices are registered on that account, I am worried the new owner will have issues setting up the system.
