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
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!
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
Hi all I currently have a sonos one and am of the understanding that there is no bluetooth connectivity to connect a device for audio playback. I'm wondering if there is a work around to this. I know I could look to purchase a move or roam and link this to my existing system, seems a bit of a pricy investment considering the cost of One. I was wondering however if this same principle will apply using an alexa device, an echo dot for example witch allows bluetooth playback, with this will I then have the option to mirror this audio on my sonos one? Any help will be appreciated
Connect turntable to a new Sonos One and a CD Changer to a second Sonos Era 100 used as a stereo pair
I have an Audio Technica 120-USB turntable with its own pre-amp that I would like to connect to either a Sonos 5 stereo pair or Sonos Era 100 through the new USB-C connection. Can I connect the turntable to the Sonos 5 or Sonos Era 100 on the left side and have it play in stereo with the matching speaker on the right side of my bookcase. Also, will the turntable sound, once connected to a Sonos Speaker be listenable by streaming to my Sonos Arc in my other main room? Assuming the turntable is connected on the left side speaker, can I then connect a CD changer to the matching Sonos speaker on the right side through the direct USB-C input and if so, will the CDs play in stereo through both speakers. Therefore, when I turn on the CD player, will the Sonos speakers in the room recognize the unit and play, and then, when I turn on the turntable in stead, will the same speakers recognize the turntable through the connection. Will the CD player connection also stream to my Sonos Arc in my
Title says it all. Hard to tell from the technical drawings and dimensions of the new Era 100.Kicking off a kitchen remodel and would like a stereo pair of 100’s. Looks like the width of the shelf is good, but I worry about the depth. Want it to look clean and not janky. Because this is going in a kitchen and the outlet shelfs will be mounted against a tile backsplash, I do not want to consider an actual mount that screws through the wall/backsplash. Need ability to remove/upgrade down the road. Era 100 = 7.18in H, 4.72in W, 5.14in DSanus Outlet Shelf = 6.84in H, 4.77in W, 5.32in D
Perhaps a question for the Sonos folks.I’m looking to replace a pair of Play 3s in one of my rooms. I’m reluctant to go with Play 5s because of the size. Will two Era 3s be a good alternative? On a related note, if I bought a pair or Era 300s, could I run a phono turntable and CD player into the two available line in ports? Many thanks
Presently have a number of speakers and a sound bar connected to my SonosNet system.Considering purchasing the new Era 300 as an update to my 2 first generation, Sonos one’s. I understand the new Era 300 doesn’t support SonosNet. Do I therefore have to remove all my speakers and sound bar from SonosNet to WiFi to incorporate the new Era300? If so, how do I do that. Removing the Sonos Boost from the system will automatically allow all my speakers to find WiFi?
I'm thinking of buying SONOS sub (Gen.3).Can I send Music from my iPhone to SONOS sub (Gen.3) directly via 'AirPlay 2'? for Example:iPhone SE → SONOS sub (Gen.3)iPhone SE → HomePods and SONOS sub (Gen.3)without Other Sonos items. Moderator edit: combined posts
I have a playbar connected to the TV in the great room with a sub and two play 3’s for surround sound. Because the area is very large (kitchen is 30-35 ft away from the TV) I would like to extend the TV sound into the dining/kitchen area with another playbar and two play 1’s. I originally wanted to designate the area as two rooms, Family Room and Kitchen, ( so I could turn off the kitchen area when watching a movie) but realized that I don’t have any way to get the TV sound to the second playbar that way. So I suppose I could add all the speakers to the Family Room but I don’t see how to do that on the app. I don’t see the option to add anything to Family Room.Please advise
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
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
My question is: would it be possible for Sonos to add to the Sonos ecosystem a vacation mode? In that mode, when activated by tapping a button in the app, all the Sonos units would power down to an absolute minimum power consumption. With vacation mode enabled, all network activity of the Sonos units will cease, of course making them unavailable in the app. Re-activation will take more startup time as usual, for the units have to boot and initiate IP handshakes with other network devices. After having returned from vacation, a tap on the vacation button would be required to re-activate the system to the normal stand-by mode. This option would reduce power consumption during the absence of the user.
Does anyone know how to get better audio through the Sonos app or through airplay? I have a Beam gen 2 with a Sub connected to my TV and two Ones (One in the kitchen and one in my bedroom). The Beam and sub sound amazing when playing music through my Apple TV but when I use the Sonos app or airplay, the sound quality and bass decrease dramatically. The crisp vocals and high tones fade away and the bass loses its punch, especially with the lowest notes. It sounds like the frequency range is being reduced. This is with Apple Music, Spotify, and Amazon music. I have also tested different audio formats such as Atmos, Stereo PCM, and Amazon ultra hd. I have also tested different sources with the same results. It is annoying because I like multi room listening, which means I have to listen at a lower quality (in the Sonos app or over airplay). I have heard much better sound quality and bass over air play and bluetooth with much cheaper systems so it’s hard to believe that is the cause.
Hi. Does the new Symfonisk Floor Lamp and wi-if speaker work with Beam? And if so, when I give voice command to my Beam to play music will that also make the Symfonisk speakers play music? Or do I have to turn the symfonsik speakers on manually every time I want to play music? Also, what is the quality of the Symfonisk speakers including the sound and the product itself? Thank you.
