I’m a little hesitant to share these observations, given that my previous contributions to this community consisted mainly of flip-flopping on the issue of a single Play 5 gen. 2 vs a stereo pair of Play 1s, but I thought this might be interesting to some here: Whilst there’s lots of discussion here regarding a stereo pair of gen. 2 Play 5s vs a pair of Play 1s with a sub, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a comparison between the Play 5 pair and a Play 1 pair without the assistance of the sub. Whilst I realise not many will be choosing between these two options, given the cost difference, I did happen to get the chance to compare these two set-ups directly yesterday: Set up as stereo pairs in the same room/location, both with Trueplay tuning applied. The main take-away from the comparison? To be honest, it was quite how amazingly good the Play 1s are relative to their tiny size and price. Of course, on the whole, the Play 5 pair was significantly better but the difference was smaller
I'm looking for a wireless speaker without power cable and with integrated battery, mainly for outdoor usage. In the past (August 2014) I have asked this question through Sonos technical support and they answered that Sonos planned to release a portable model with battery, expected launch in 2016. However, I still can't seem to find such a model in the available products. Anyone who has more information on this topic? Otherwise, I am obliged to purchase a product from competitors, who do have this in their product range. E.g. Bose SoundLink Revolve - https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/speakers/wireless_speakers/soundlink_revolve.html
Hi peeps. I have 2 new Sonos Ones as a left and right stereo pair. I am thinking of buying a Playbar, which I know will connect to my tv through the audio out through it, but can I connect all speakers together and play Spotify / Deezer through Playbar and Ones as a whole?? Thanks!!
Are the line-in sources for Play 3's & 5's really only iPads, iPods, and iPhones? This is what is noted on this topic at the Sonos website: Audio line-in: Auto-detecting 3.5mm audio line-in connection. Listen to music that’s stored on an iPod or iPhone: Dock, charge and wirelessly play the music from an iPod or iPhone with the SONOS DOCK (sold separately).
I'm using the TuneInApp for several years now on my smartphone, tablet, Mac and - of course - on my Sonos devices. iTunes offers hearers the possibility to choose from different stream qualities a radio station provides. It would be great if I also may choose them from within the Sonos controller apps. This may also practical when a user is on holidays: when the user takes his Sonos Play: loudspeaker with him ;) and connects it to a mobile 3G/LTE router this could help saving bandwidth.
I was wondering if there's an easy way to show off some of my Sonos system to a family member in THEIR home. I'd love to be able to take a couple of my Play 1's to my family Xmas for the day, next month. I actually tried to use one of my Play 1's for a neighborhood Halloween party at my next door neighbor's house two weeks ago. I thought I could just connect to my neighbor's WIFI network, and even installed the Sonos app on his phone, but it wasn't worth the trouble in terms of being asked to set up a new account, etc... Has anyone else done this?
I am planning to get a Roam and leave it constantly plugged in to use it primarily as a wifi speaker, with the option of taking it out and about when needed. My question is, will leaving it constantly plugged in degrade the battery life? The FAQ for the Move explicitly states that leaving it on the charging base will not degrade battery life. However, the equivalent FAQ for the Roam is notably missing this reference. Thanks for your help!
I have purchased a Play 5 on, as I wanted to just plug in my iPhone and play through the auxiliary input (I liked the sound quality and will build on the system later). The salesperson in the store told me I could do this. I have wifi but no router, and purchased the speaker only (none of the other 'bits'). However, when I've plugged the iPhone into the aux in, nothing happened. The light flashes but nothing plays. Is it not just plug and play? Do I need to set something up through a network first?
New portable travel SONOS Speaker with Bluetooth for stand-alone usage & WiFi for use at home with your SONOS system
Would you please create a portable travel speaker (like the cool new Bose Soundlink Mini or Jambox or Beats Pill) with Bluetooth and also links with your WiFi setup at home? I only use a travel speaker 3 times a year, so it would be great if I could also use it in my Sonos setup at home.
I’m sure that I could turn off the white LED on play 1 speakers but can’t remember how I done it and can’t see anywhere in settings to do it. The led is quite bright on the bedroom speakers and I’m having to unplug them at night. This is a bit inconvenient especially when I want to listen to music in the morning. Can anyone remind me where the setting is. Thanks Mark

I just read this about your recent SEC filing: https://www.theverge.com/2018/7/11/17559380/sonos-airplay-2-support-software-update-download “We expect that in the near to intermediate term, this backward compatibility will no longer be practical or cost-effective, and we may decrease or discontinue service for our older products,” says Sonos in a recent SEC filing. When will you let customers know about which products will be affected by this discontinuation plan? Clearly you know internally since you say in the near to immediate term this policy is going ahead. I presume for example the first gen Play 5 you no longer sell will be affected and the old Sonos Bridge. The problem for those of us using speakers with online services such as Spotify probably means once API changes are made by the service provider, we'll almost certainly be shut out from using those services with our older Sonos speakers. There's nothing particularly shocking about this. I'm curious what the plan
I have just got the Sonos One but I cannot find the command to turn the device off? I have attempted multiple different commands with Alexa but nothing works? Can anyone help me with the correct command or does the device just stay switched on at all times? Thanks in advance
I'm new to the Sonos world - having waited for Google Play integration (thanks!) - and am generally very impressed, as it's a joy to use such well designed products. However, I've been surprised that Groups functionality is so weak compared to what I'd expected... I have a large living room that has an LR Pair of Play:1s in it and a single Play:5. When playing music in that room, all three are *always* used together, but this has exposed design shortcomings of the current Groups functionality. I'd anticipated being able to configure all the speakers in my living room (ie. all those speakers that are *always* used simultaneously) to form a "permanent" grouping, not too dissimilar to how you can "permanently" create LR pairs. Currently, Groups are what I'd term "soft", and this leads to the following shortcomings: - THE PHYSICAL VOLUME BUTTONS HAVE BEEN RENDERED USELESS, SINCE THEY DO NOT CONTROL GROUP VOLUME. For example, despite my three speakers always being used together in a sing
