Sub mini - single pairing?
I was excited that my sub mini arrived today, but not so much now that I've set it up. We've got an open-plan area where I have a beam for the tv and two 5s for music. I assumed I could pair the sub mini to both - ie, that it'd work with the beam when watching tv and with the 5s for music. But it looks like I have to assign it to one or the other. A bit disappointed! Unless I'm missing something?
speakers will not connect!
Have has Sonos for 10 years with almost zero issues until the last year, but clearly because I have original Sonos 5 speakers I guess Sonos is just trying to screw my investment in their company! Over the last year about every couple of months we end up not being to play anything over speakers…Sonos app can detect all the speakers, just will NOT connect! I guess the only way to keep customers these days is to disrupt original product and try and make you purchase another $10 in product…if this is how this company (that I told everyone I knew to buy if they were in the market) and now just a sellout to corporate greed and shareholder vs good product and customer service…if only companies would look again at good products and customer service vs short term $$, but I guess that’s what investors are looking for these days and not caring about the customer is where it’s at!
Better for album listening - Arc + Surrounds, or Stereo Fives
TLDR: What is the best way to enjoy albums given you already have an Arc and Sub? I have an arc and sub in our media room. I’ve recently gotten a port to attach our turntable, and am wondering about getting a more expansive sound. Broadly speaking, could I expect a pair of fives facing me, or a pair of ones behind me set up in a surround system to offer a better experience? I’m wondering if a pair of surrounds behind me would offer the same kind of stereo experience as speakers facing you, and if the sub and or arc would work with the fives, i.e. would I be losing bass if I ran the turntable through the fives.
Moves Playing in Stereo over Bluetooth
I purchased two Moves with the intent of creating a stereo pair of portable speakers. Fine on WiFi. Bluetooth is a whole different story. I should have paid closer attention to the specifications - specifically the FAQ. The whole point of getting two Moves was to take my music outside and on the road where there is no WiFi. I am very disappointed in Sonos at the moment. There is an old guideline in product design/development: if you can’t do something fully and completely to what the average customer will expect, don’t do it until you can. To the Sonos engineers and product management folks: engineering a pair of speakers to work as a stereo pair over bluetooth is very possible and has been accomplished many times. I have a pair of very high quality JBL Flip4s which work nicely in stereo mode while connected to my phone in Bluetooth mode. They do this by pairing the streaming device to one of the speakers and then connecting the two speakers to each other so that the one drives the oth

Stereo Five placement / toe in?
Hi,I’m waiting for delivery of a pair of Fives and a Sub for our fairly large living room. The Fives will be on shelves on the rear wall of the room. Is it best to have the Fives vertically with the tweeters (controls) on the insides. Any advantage in having them toed in? TVM.
Trouble adding wired system to existing wireless system
In our living room we have a Beam (Hard wired) and 2 Play:1’s (wireless) as a stereo pair.Kitchen: 2x One’s (wireless) as a stereo pair.Dining Room: 2x One’s (wireless) as a stereo pair.Downstairs Bathroom: 2x Roams.This has all worked perfectly for over a year. All 3 zones have perfect WiFi coverage.Today I tried to add 2x One SL’s, 2x Sub Gen 3’s and an Arc to our media room (converted garage)Our WiFi coverage works literally half way into this room, the rear ones were picked straight away as they are closer to the router but adding the arc and subs took forever of hitting retry, and rebooting I eventually realised it was because of the WiFi, I added a hardwired WiFi access point with a different SSID and tried to add the new stuff to the new network, after over an hour failing I disconnected the access point and hardwired all the new stuff, rebooted it and one by one (totally stupid) disabled WiFi and now everything but 1 sub works.I can factory reset it and it shows up for a few mi
sonos system Ray and Sonos 1
Anyone got any idea how you link a Ray and a One to make a system?I have 1 One and a Ray in the living room which I’m trying to link together to get a surround sound type system but struggling.I have other One’s throughout the house but I don’t want to add them to this system. As soon as I don’t want to select those other One’s I can’t seem to build a system. thanks
I hate my Roam
I cannot tell you how much I hate my Sonos Roam and I am beating myself up that I spent close to $200 for this miserable experience. The charge on it lasts one hour at most. Then it won’t play even when plugged in until it reaches a certain charge percentage. My old bluetooth Jambox works SO, MUCH. BETTER. Sonos Team: I have 6 Sonos One speakers wired in and they are wonderful. This Roam wireless option is a piece of crap.
SONOS ARC makes a BOOM noise
Hi alli just wanted to report my SONOS ARC literally makes a BOOM (explosion noise) during TV playback and then sounds stop. This never happened before. Only changing point is my system was unplugged from electricity for about a week while I was on trip, I came back today and turn my system on and after some tv playback that strange noise appears. See diagnostics number: 673888573
I work at a school with a sever and APs all over. I have a Sonos 1 in the main office, the lounge, and 2 in the cafe. If I group lounge and main office together they work or just the two in cafe. If I group all 4 together to play they do not work. Is it because they are on different APs (same network)? Is there a way to make this work or no? Also I have it on the student Wi-Fi because it doesn’t require a user name and password. I should have it on staff wifi but it requires username and password and I don’t think you can do that with sonos sadly.
Speakers suddenly showing incompatible in S1
I have stayed with S1 as I have a ceiling speaker running off an older sonos amp in the attic that I like to group with newer speakers. Suddenly today most of me speakers are showing incompatible in S1 and asking me to upgrade to S2, but if I do this I can no longer group the ceiling speaker that has to run on S1. Is this fixable? Very frustrating
Sonos Play:5 and a disappearing line-in signal, a mystery'
Wonder if anyone can help out here.I am sending a signal from the Google Home speaker to a group of Sonos speakers via a Chromecast Audio going into the line-in of the Sonos Play:5 speaker. Since some time now the line-in signal would mysteriously disappearBoth Chromecast and Sonos claim the signal is going through but no audio is heard on the Sonos Play:5 speaker. If I reboot the Play:5, the signal returns back, but then it will disappear again after a week or two.I don't quite know what to do here and how to troubleshoot thisThoughts? .
Can't re-use my old Flexson Play:1 adjustable stands with a new Play One
I recently upgraded some of my old Play:1 speakers to the New Play One and assumed that i could re-use my existing Flexson adjustable speaker Stands. I was wrong. New stands supplied by Flexson are universal and they will fit but i don't want to have to buy new stands. Is anyone aware of anywhere of where i could just obtain the speaker holder/ base that fits to the top of the stem? I have looked at the instructions for the old one and the new one and they look like they use the same fixing method to the top of the stem. So i believe this is all that is needed. However i have spoken with Flexson support and they don't supply that bit. Is any one aware of a solution that allows me to re-use my old stands or aware of any where i can get the speaker holder/base ?
