Hi Sonos creators,As u may know I do have the whole sonos collection in order to play movies at its highest level…...BUT…..Is it possible that Sonos will work someday with Dolby Atmos company in L.A. on a possibility of adding more units and upgrades in order to run this new sound system as good as those 11.2 domestics home theater sound systems from today. For instance:1- using the arc soundbar at a lower center and another one above the television, using the sonos five for the lower fronts, two sonos ones for higher fronts….and same thing for the sides and the rears?Presently I have the arc soundbar, a pair of Sonos Five for surrounds and 2 subs (1front and 1 rear), of course it sounds real good….BUT…….some’s really missing…….the heights and the sides !!!…..I know, would cost a fortune to add all those units but damn it’s sound terrific wooffff……...By the way nice design….very small units for their power capacities…...very high end components…..see I’m not even using my kit in my ow
Similar to what is outlined here: I experience in some cases a metallic / distorted / chirping sound on my Beam2. Happens with Panasonic and LG TV, so it’s not a TV issue.The metallic sound is somewhat in the background, but clearly noticeable. It is also somewhat correlated to the original sound, seems to be directly „derived“ from it, like a distorted low volume copy.For me only happens in night sound mode.When i disable night sound, the issue disappears my.Seem to happen more often on TV channels with PCM stereo. But I have not been able to relay reliably reproduce it. It happens quite often though.Switching the channel can make the error appear or go away.Wild engineering guess is some sort of Bitstream MSB/LSB alignment error. Re-init also means re-align and this can fix it. Possibly hardware not SW?Anyone else experiencing this?
Every year I bring my Sonos Play:3 speakers in off my home deck and winter them in my office by adding them to my “work” system. This year when I try to add a Play:3 to my “Work” system, the Sonos 1 app is making me upgrade to Sonos 2 app (see picture) . There is no choice about it. The Sonos 1 app forces you to update to the Sonos 2 app. I tried updating to the Sonos 2 app on my iPad. It sees the old “Work” system but will not allow me add any new products to that system. I’m bummed because this is something I’ve done many times without issue previously on the Sonos 1 appI have read about updating in the chats and they say, Devices that are S1 Compatible only will only work on S1 (it’s in the label). Newly designed devices (currently Arc, Five, Sub gen 3) will only work on S2.My equipment (20+ sonos products) is older S1 and I want to continue to use the S1 app to add and subtract speakers from my different Sonos systems. Is there a workaround? Thanks.
So, there were not any explicit answers that I could find. I found it when I prayed about it.So:On the Firestick: Home>Settings>Equipment Control>You my have to enter your PIN>Manage Equipment>Add Equipment>Scroll Down to Soundbar>Select Sonos.It walks you through the rest. It took about five minutes.
I have a 2020 LG CX TV with an Arc, 2 Ones and a sub that has been working fine for a year. Earlier today, the sound stopped coming through the Sonos speakers. I was able to get the sound to work through the speakers but the LG remote no longer controls the volume. I have tried the manual setup controls from other threads but it doesn’t work. Also, if I try to set up the TV in the Sonos app, I get an error that the Arc Mode is not connected but it is.
I updated the S1 app on my iPod Touch this morning, to version 11.6.1, and now when I try to launch it, the splash screen displays for a few seconds and then it quits. This is a 7th gen iPod Touch that had been running iOS 15.6.1. I noticed there was an iOS update and updated it to 15.7.1: same result. Is anyone else seeing this?
Sonos S2 system. Latest updates. Just deleted and re-added Plex; no change. Plex software is current. Running Ubiquiti Unifi system for network gear.I can see my library, and for the most part, play music files from Plex.When I try to play much larger m4b audiobooks, I see a whole bunch of ranged gets (with 200 status code) of 6144 bytes in length (For a 200+MB file) and then it eventually fails and I can’t play back the book. Each of these gets is from a different source port on my Sonos, which I think is excessive.I do have Remote Access for Plex enabled but do not have any ports published (for Plex or anything else).Any idea what is going on and what I should do here? I’d like to be able to play Audiobooks through Plex on my Sonos.Thanks
Just tried to use Trueplay Tuning on my Arc system and I got the message regarding it is not yet supported on this iPhone. I have the iPhone 14 Pro. I assume a software update will be coming soon for Sonos similar to what happened with the iPhone 12. Less of a question and more of a PSA
What is the latest version of Sonos 1 Controller for Mac, and what are the minimum system requirements?
My High Sierra Mac Pro crashes every time when it attempts to update from 11.5, could that be because the latest version does not work on High Sierra?Astounding that Sonos does not seem to provide basic info like this on their site.
hi there, new member of Sonos fam. I have about 80+ gigs of music stored on iCloud. is there a way to access this to be played in Sonos app? can someone explain in detail how to make this happen if possible? or workarounds if not possible? thank you so much!
I currently have two in ceiling architectural speakers connected to a Sonos Amp in our master bedroom. I have a pre-wire for a speaker in master bathroom ceiling. What are my options for connecting that speaker to the Sonos Amp? is there a certain speaker I need to purchase? Would prefer to have my master bedroom speakers as one left and one right if possible. Thank you.
Greetings,I use my Arc primarily to listen to music. I have 5.1 surround & Atmos audio files on my PC. What format should they be in to play them on the arc with the sonos app? Or is there another way to do it without using a TV? I even read somewhere that the app will only play stereo files.Eg. many of the files are encoded as flac 96khz / 24 bit. I tried converting them to 48khz / 24bit flac as listed in the requiremetns, but Sonos app still wouldn’t play them, says ‘unsupported format’. Thanks for any help you can give.
Is there any official documentation/web links that describes the formats the Sonos uses for Apple Music streaming direct from Sonos Apple Music Service vs AirPlay?I previously ripped my CD collection to Apple Lossless (FLAC), this was uploaded a few years ago to Apple Match, and I am now looking to convert this subscription to Apple Music (on a trial) so I can stream my Library directly ffrom Apple Music.When I stream my Library via Apple Music, I see around 1Mb/s bandwidth on my router to the wired Sonos device from the Internet, but cant figure out what format it is streaming.If I AirPlay from iOS device will it be same format?
Hello all,See the title for the problem. I’m playing a 3 hour long track from my NAS. Yesterday evening, the track progress bar showed up, along with all the time info. Today, apparently my system rebooted, and I attempted to play the same track, and I get no time or progress bar. I used to think it was the tracks, but since it was working the previous day, and now it’s not, I suspect it’s some sort of problem with the S2 app.I would have replied here: https://en.community.sonos.com/topic/show?tid=6842164&fid=228995 but that thread is closed.
Since my Sonos app was updated to version 14.18.2 I get constant the following notification:Sonos: Stopping the service may interrupt playback notifications I can disable it if I uncheck the Background Services Notification, but this should not be the solution…Samsung S21 Ultra running Android 13
Hi,I don’t know for how long this feature has been removed, but it now seems impossible to set an Apple music local radio station (I’m talking about “legacy” radio stations, not the ones from Apple) as an alarm anymore. Radio stations just don’t show up in the “Alarm” menus.I read somewhere about a workaround (adding the radio as a favourite, then it would show up in “My Sonos” section of the alarm menu) but it doesn’t work anymore as radios are simply removed from the “my sonos” list in this particular menu.Sonos support confirmed the regression but was not able to provide a target date for resolution.Any suggestion? I know I could stream from Sonos Radio (which is correctly displayed in the alarm menu btw) but it is buggy (same ad repeating several times each time the alarm is fired up).Thanks!
So i got 2 One’s for my dad to work in surround with his arc. To his slight annoyance, a lot of the content he watches isn’t broadcast in surround, e.g. the world cup. So he would like his sonos One surrounds to work as a mono or stereo pair playing whats on tv, duplicating the arc. This can be automatic or manually switched. I was thinking i could create a separate group with the 2 One’s as a stereo pair and just switch between them in the app, but sonos, in their unending quest to minimize system flexibility, doesn’t allow speakers to be in more than one group, or at least i can’t find a way to do it.
I am working with the low voltage installer currently on a plan for speaker placement. I will be putting in ceiling speakers in various places, but the one area I need some clarification on is the main living room.My planned setup is as follows:TV, Arc Soundbar, Sub and x2 Wall Speakers connected to a Sonos Amp as surroundCurrently on the plan all speaker wiring is home run back to a panel in the basement. I had planned to put multiple sonos amps in that location wired to ethernet. Can I do this with the TV surrounds as well? It is unclear to me if they need to be physically connected to the TV/Arc or if being on the same network will allow me to pair them up as surrounds. This obviously changes where I would home run that speaker pair to.Thanks!
I have music and audio books stored on my NAS. I previously ran a Samba docker container so I could share this content with my S1 system and SMB 1.0. Though I didn’t use it a ton so it may have been broken then; not sure. I just upgraded to S2. I can index my Audio Books and Music folders with Sonos directly on the NAS (not the docker container) but only some books play back; others consistently fail. Not sure why. Anybody know of limits of file size? These are all in the same “Audio Books” folder. The files that work are smaller (200mb or so) but small files have also failed. I can access that share with the same user account Sonos uses and copy the file so I don’t think it is a permissions issue. Separately, I run Owntone on my network (iTunes server). But apparently it doesn’t support DLNA.I have Plex but am hesitant to enable Remote Access.What is the best way to expose my Audio Books and Music to Sonos?Any good docker containers of DLNA servers that I could run that Sono
