Sonos Roam keeps disconnecting while playing
We use our Roam to play white noise in our daughters room. The speaker is set up in her room on the wireless charger. Previously it always worked fine, and then now it randomly just drops out and appears as “not connected” in the Sonos app. It’ll play for an hour or so, and then it disappears. Hard rebooting the speaker via the button on the back returns it to the app and makes it usable again, but it’ll play for another hour or so and then randomly stop and disappear. For reference: my home sonos system runs on Sonosnet channel 6
Multichannel PCM 5.1 dropping out since 14.10 update
Anyone else experiencing the same issue? Multichannel PCM 5.1 blanks out for a second every 1-2 minutes. I don’t think it’s a bandwidth issue as it works flawlessly with Multichannel PCM 7.1 (thorough test) and Dolby TrueHD Atmos (quick test). And it may have been caused by the Sonos 14.10 update. Setup is PS5→ LG C1→ Beam 2 (via earc). 2 weeks ago before the 14.10 update, I watched a bluray film wherein I had my PS5 transcode the DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio to Multichannel PCM 5.1 (as the C1 does not support DTS) and had no issues. Earlier today, I played a bluray film for the first time in 2 weeks and I encountered consistent audio dropouts every 1-2 minutes. It had the same setup where DTS-HD MA 5.1 → Multichannel PCM 5.1. I tested other bluray discs including the one I watched 2 weeks ago and they all now have the same issue. Curiously, I’ve been gaming heavily on my PS5 the past two 2 weeks and haven’t had any audio issues. Then I realized that I’ve been using Multichannel PCM 7.1 when ga
Benq Remote not pairing with Sonos Arc or Playbar
Hi, I have a BenQ x3000i projector connected to my Arc and I would like to control the volume using the remote. However, it will not pair. I have seen this issue on the forum previously, but the answer did not help. Previously, The Arc will pair with my Firestick remote, but not the BenQ which is an IR remote. So, I know that the Arc is capable of pairing through the projector, but not with this particular remote. Any clues. In the past, I have had no trouble pairing remotes, just this particular one. Thank you for any help. John
Sonos Era 300, Surround, and no Stands
Who else is sitting in this boat with my lame butt? Lol. Was unable to get stands for these things. Much larger than I imagined so sitting on end tables isn't happening (and not positioned optimal either with this option. I just do not get why everything they launch a new product, there is never enough stands. They sound great sitting on make shift stacks to test them, but will be getting packed up until I can get stands (anyone who is married gets this). Again I just don't get how they are never ready for the stand demand every single time.
How can I patch our band's mixer line out to venue's installed Sonos system?
Our band performs regularly at a small club that has a multi-room Sonos system installed for recorded music when the band is not playing. The system sounds really great - loud, clean, excellent coverage of the venue. Our own PA speakers are high end, but they are too loud up front and not loud enough in the back, always a challenge. I would like to patch a line level output from our band’s mixer into the Sonos system when we play. Exactly what would I need to do that? Club owner is hesitant - he seems to think we could harm his setup. He has not told me exactly what Sonus gear he has. All I know is that he controls it all from his phone, and it is high end. We could run a cable to his central Sonos device assuming that it has a line level in… or we could go wireless - I believe Sonus has a device, or we could transmit over wi-fi with a non-Sonus receiver by his central device.Any advice without knowing his exact gear? I’m sure I will ultimately be able to find out, but I would like to
Home Theater with Era300
Hello everyone from Rome :-)I write because I need the experts of this wonderful brand!I have a full system with Arc + Sub(Gen3) + One, I only watch movies with 4K discs and Playstation 5.I would like to understand if the addition of the Era300 gives me something more about the Atmos, given that the Arc itself already has speakers that go upwards for the Atmos effect.Does buying the Era300 increase the atmos effect? So I would have the Arc + Era300 atmos speakers?Thanks to everyone for the precious advices!
replacing my sonos ones with era 300 for my surround
Hello I have the arc. Mini sub and two Sonos ones . The ones are on the wall at the rear however my sofa is against the wall as well. I have no way of placing them behind me. if I replace the ones with the era’s would they still work not being behind me?they would be placed on stands right in the rear corner of the room. mid this would still work how should they face ? Into the room or at 45deg into the room or turned to face me on the sofa.also I have never had great success with atmos movies with the arc and ones I would hope the eras would fix this.
Sonos S2 14.18.2 notification: stopping the service may interrupt playback notifications
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
Why can't Sonos Roam work for phone calls? I want an answer.
I learn after I buy the product and start using it that for some unfathomable reason it won’t work on phone calls. The product has a good mic on it. Every other bluetooth speaker can do this. There is no mention anywhere of the lack of capability. I feel completely misled and wasted my money. I demand an explanation for why the company chooses not to allow this use case. And don’t close this topic for comments just because you don’t want to hear from more customers about this issue. I WANT AN ANSWER.
x2 era 100 or x1 era 300 for my kitchen?
I have a five, and we’re putting in a kitchen in a large area. Am I better to get:x2 era 100 and stereo them? x1 era 300 and utilise the dolby sound another 5 because I love it (but it’s quite big!) and stereo them? or is this overkill?I have x2 ones, a sub and an arc set up in the next room as a surround sound system, and a couple of roams that fit in pretty much wherever I need them. The kitchen system will be static and high enough that I won't be using the controls on them. I run IOS from phone or macbook Thanks :)
Adding a Sonos beam gen 2 to a pair of Five ?
Hello,I am very satisfied with my pair of Sonos Five, playing music all day long.Now I am thinking to buy a Sonos beam gen 2 to enjoy similar quality of sound with films too. But I read it may affect the quality sound of my music?! The pair of Five would no more be used the way they're now when I am listening to music (some sound would come from the beam 2 and no more from the excellent Five's). Except if switching on the app which seems to be a pain...Is it true?!Thanks

Can you play Spatial Audio from Apple Music over AirPlay2
I have a set of Spatial Audio (Dolby Atmos) compatible speakers: an Arc, 2 x Era 300s and a Sub.When I read various articles, I get the sense that the only way to play Spatial Audio from Apple Music is via the Sonos S2 app, and that it won’t be lossless. Is that right?If one plays from the Apple Music app (iOS or OSX) over AirPlay 2 to these devices, I further get the sense believe that the music won’t be Spatial Audio (or lossless). Is that right?
Setting up Sonos with Eero WiFi system
I have had trouble getting my Sonos system to work for the past few months, since installing an Eero WiFi system, and I wanted to share what I learned so that I help others avoid the headaches and hassle. The problem: After installing a network of Eero WiFi devices (three eero Pro devices and one eero Beacon extender), my Sonos system stopped working reliably (would not connect, drop devices, etc.). I tried restarting, reinstalling units, etc., etc., without success. The solution: Over the past two weeks, I have read a number of posts on this Sonos support site that helped me get the system working again today. Here is what I did and some comments on my system: [list] [*]Enabled "Bridge Mode" on our Xfinity Wireless Gateway device -- got instructions on how to do so on the Comcast website (need to log in from your internet browser and follow a few steps) [*]Connected the eero Pro device that was indicated as the "gateway" (was the only device that my eero app showed as being the "g
Can't adjust Line In Delay setting on Era 100s
Hey all - Just got my Era 100s and working on setting two up as a stereo pair. I have the line in adapter connected to one and am attempting to adjust the delay setting from 2000ms to 75ms in the Sonos app, but when I choose 75ms, the checkmark just jumps back to 2000ms. I’ve deleted and re-installed the app, power cycled the speakers, adjusted the source level setting, nothing seems to make a difference.
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
Era100 Set up
Replace my Sonos Gen one ( pair) with a pair of Era 100. Really pleased with the new speakers. Worth the upgrade in my opinion. The setup was not straightforward. Initially used my phone to set up the first speaker only to have an error message ‘ another App using airplay’ Could not work that out so I used my iPad. All went OK. There was an issue with Alexa in that I couldn’t get Alexa to work with the new speakers. Seems that was my fault for trying to add the new speakers with the same room name I used on the Sonos ones. Changed the room name and all was well. Overall I am impressed with the pair of Era 100. They sound terrific as a stereo pair.
Improving my Sonos system
I’m looking for advice on how i might improve my current system and if indeed changes will improve it. Not able to finance multiple upgrades so need to do in phases. I’m looking at Phase 1 purchase this Easter, phase 2 next year. i currently have a Sonos amp to wing I’ve connected a Pro-Ject turntable and Terri stand alone 1990’s Polk speakers. These act as the front right and left speakers. The surround speakers are two Sonos Fives in a vertical position so confused for stereo sound. My question I guess is what can I add to this system to make it really sound better?1: Will adding a Soundbar really make a difference, if so is the Arc the best choice? 2: Is that Preferable to adding a Sonos sub woofer, which one?3: What should i prioritise for phase 1, Soundbar or sub woofer?4: Even though i love the old Polks would the system be better enhanced by replacing them as front speakers with speakers from Sonos? Would i be better served by moving existing Fives to replace Polks and buying
Connect to existing Ceiling speaker with Arc, Sub and Ones
Hi all, I recently moved into a house with existing wired ceiling speakers right above the TV unit and I already own an ARC, SUB and two Ones as surround. Is it possible to hook two speakers to the SONOS system? Would that be an overkill for what I already have? Thanks
