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
When I start up the Android app it keeps showing the queue screen which is empty. It does this if the room that is playing is showing full screen but not if the playing is minimised and showing the rooms instead - hopefully that makes sense.So if I close the app with the playing showing full screen, it will open full screen the next time and immediately shows the empty queue. If I close the app showing the rooms with the playing part minimised, it doesn’t open the queue screen when I start up the app but as soon as I maximise the playing part of it, it shows the queue screen.There’s nothing in the queue and I just mainly listen to Planet Rock Radio which is still showing in the playing part when I start the app up.The queue has been empty for many months and I’ve not used it for many months apart from having to keep close it when it opens by itself.
Hi All,I currently have a Beam (Gen 2) and am looking at upgrading the system with either 2 off Era 100 speakers (to be used as rears) or a mini wireless subwoofer...eventually I will buy both, but which should I buy first to get the best possible enhancement to sound when watching TV primarily, music and then films?Any advice will be very much appreciated.
I am in the initial planning stages of a system for a new home currently under construction - more on that later. Right now, quick question - If I have a Sonos Amp powering 4 ceiling speakers, can I wirelessly connect a Sonos Sub to that as well? So my Amp powers the 4 ceiling speakers and the powered Sub connects wirelessly and works as well? Or - would it need to be wired to the Amp RCA? Or - Am I better powering 2 ceiling speakers and a passive dual-voice coil sub in this zone? I am concerned that ceiling speakers alone will not give the depth and bass that a sub will add. I am brand new to Sonos - don’t own anything yet, but not new to home audio.
Hi, we have recently moved into a property that has veiling speakers throughout the house (they seem to be in nearly every room!) and external one also. All are hardwired in and areas where it’s designated for a TV seem to have amplifiers and there is 3 boxes wired up in the mechanical room that I believe are related to the speaker system.I’ve not even tried to get anything working with the gear that is there currently. I’d like to get this working with sonos but have no idea what would be needed and how I’d go about it.I’d like some advise on what Sonos products I’d need and then how I’d go about getting this working.Thank you!
Hi all Good people. During Black Week the Sub mini was down around $100 and i was able to get one.First i add it to my livingroom downstairs along with the Playbase&Ikea BS. I try different placement and try multiple Truplay-runs. Sound was like ok,but nothing more. I really enjoy this room even without the Sub mini. I think Playbase is a great soundbar. Anyway…. Then i moved the Sub mini upstairs and integrade it with the Beam Gen2& Era 100…and i got a Ikea BS stereopair as well. The Sub mini is placed in the front corner of the room. Let me say it like this: the Sub mini outplay Gen3 by far….i’m in LOVE. The tight punch,the dynamic…just WOW. Yes,i’m talking bout performance with Music,not TV/Film/Movies. Just pure enjoyable music. And the size….to be honest,i thought the Sub mini was a small unit….it’s not. It’s somehow bigger than i imagine.I have not watch any movies,only Youtube,and the sound is good(enough). I probobly gonna watch some films in the near future,but i think
I have an audio-technical AT-LP120-USB Direct-Drive Professional USB and Analog Turntable System. I’d like to find the correct Sonos component that will connect the turntable to my Sonos system. I have Sonos Immersive Set with Arc (Arc, sub and 2 Ones) for TV and streaming music audio in the living room; and Sonos Fives in our bedroom and den. The turntable (haven’t yet used) is on a shelf in the den, near power but not near the Sonos Five. I’m looking for a component that will allow the turntable to connect (and be an audio source) to the Sonos system via my WiFi network. The turntable has a cable with RCA-type L&R connectors and a female USB Type B socket. What is the best, and hopefully most economical, Sonos component that can connect the turntable output to my Sonos system via WiFi?
I have a Sonos system, Era300 and Era100 speakers, and I have a Sony LX310BT vinyl turntable.Everything was working perfectly for a few days: the vinyl player and the Sonos Era300 speaker are perfectly connected via Bluetooth with a steady blue light.However, for the past few days, no sound is coming out of the speaker when I try to connect it to either the Era300 or Era100.I tested my turntable on a Bluetooth Marshall speaker, and it works.I connected my phone via Bluetooth to the speakers using Apple Music, and there is sound.I've tried to troubleshoot the issue from every angle, but I can't find a solution. I don't know why, overnight, no sound is coming out.I have done the lastest update. Problem remains…Has there been a Sonos firmware update? thx!
I am a little shocked that Sonos still hasn’t provided a way to export a playlist yet. I have invested a lot into the speaker system because of the quality however being restricted like this is discerning to say the least. I am not sure what the point is now in creating a Sono playlist ever and I’ll keep to only using Spotify or Apple musics playlist features. Sonos I would highly recommend you invest in this feature moving forward.

Hi I just bought a Gen 3 sub and sonos arc. Am liking the sound after tuning it yesterday. Curious. I have two in wall surrounds. If I were to get a connect amp gen 1, will this integrate with the sound bar / sub? I hear Connect Amp Gen 1 works on S1 app...I don’t mind that...if it means when playing sounds through my TV the sound bar, surronds and sub work together. Thanks.

Hi all,I have my music library stored on a Synology NAS drive and it has been working without issue until recently - I may have made some changes to the S2 settings and screwed it up.At any rate, I have all my playlists, etc with Apple Music and am able to play all of the music via Apple Music from the source files that are stored on the NAS.In S2 I have all of the same playlists, etc. but for any and every song that I attempt to play S2 indicates that it cannot locate the file.For Apple Music my preferences are pointed to /Macintosh HD/Users/username/Music/Music_NAS/Media.For some reason on the S2 the Music Library is pointed to //Diskstation/Music. The location of the iTunes files are actually located in //Diskstation/Music/iTunes.The file structure for iTunes (Music) makes me crazy. I want to say that I set up iTunes to point locally for the playlists but have the files stored on a NAS for performance (maybe this was a suggestion by Synology).At any rate, any thoughts on how to get
I was about to buy a Sonos Five speaker (discounted now) because we’re moving and I will switch to Sonos. But I just found out, the speaker was released in 2020. I don’t need it immediately and I am willing to wait a few months. Haven’t found any info online either if a new version is in the pipeline. Of course there is the ERA 300 but since I’m listening to non Dolby Atmos music most of the time, the Five might still be the better choice? Also: I will connect my Technics SL-1200 and listen to records.
I am considering purchasing Sonos speakers and considering a variety of approaches. The room is about 12 X 20 X 9. Our sitting area is about 8-10 feet from the TV. The TV is a 3 year old 55” Samsung, it has ARC HDMI output but not eARC. We have a new Xfinity cable box and good Internet connection.The TV is currently mounted above an enclosed gas fireplace, which has an 8” shelf on the top of it. The TV is mounted to the wall above the fireplace shelf on a swivel arm connected to the wall which lets me move it out to be flush with the outer edge of the fireplace shelf or all the way back to the wall taking up ~2” of the shelf.The swivel does not let me raise or lower the TV at this point.I like the idea of a Sonos Arc (and optionally 2 sonos one’s for rear speakers), but not sure if this will fit our setup.I see two choices were we to get a Sonos Arc: 1) raise the height of the TV so that the Arc can be on the shelf above the fireplace - either by adjusting the TV swivel arm (i.e. re-at
Hi there I am trying to set up some sound for a retail store. The store is about 50m2 (500 sqft). It’s a dispensary so I def. want to create a vibe in there but not blast it super loud. Behind the counter there is a flat surface with plenty of space to put a record player and speakers. Am I better off buying two fives or 4 smaller ones with a sub ? How would I connect the vinyl player to the system ? I know it can connect to the Fives, can it also connect to smaller speakers ? Since it is a retail store with rotating staff I want something fool-proof, so a wired solution between record player and speaker is preferred over anything Bluetooth. Thanks for any help !
I just updated my system to S2 v15.1 and my Gen2 subwoofer failed (my Sonos1, Playbar, Amp2 all updated fine). I tried resetting, reconnecting, rebootng and nothing worked. I called tech support and they went thru the same steps, said it was likely a fault. They cannot “see” the sub on their end and offered an RMA #. Now I have to buy a new subwoofer “at a discount”, which will still cost me more than $600. Is there anything beside 1) restarting the sub (white flashing light doesn’t go green), resetting to factory default (orange/white flashing light doesn’t go green), rebooting by Boost, rebooting my router, that I can do on my end?
After the most recent upgrade to Sonos 13.4 (S2), I don’t see much cover art in the Sonos controller. More precisely, it seems that I see cover art if it is embedded into the MP3 file, but not if the cover art in a separate file called folder.jpg. In my collection, most albums have a folder.jpg, and only a minority of albums have embedded cover art. There are two reasons for this:Albums that originally had on CD, cassette or vinyl. For several years, Sonos was not able to display cover art that was embedded into the MP3 files that I bought, so I had to extract them to folder.jpg and remove them from the MP3 file.Is any one else seeing this? Or is this just some accident on my system?
I currently have a whole house audio system with 6 Sonos Amps. In two of those rooms, I have a separate TV/Audio/Speaker setup with their own speakers tied to Sony STRAZ1000ES receivers. All the Sonos amp as well as the STRAZ1000ES receivers are all nicely stacked in one location. I know the STRAZ1000ES has the “Works with Sonos” feature but for the life of me I do not understand it. Can someone provide direction and/or feasibility to do two things that I would love to accomplish with these lovely items. I would love to watch the TV and have the audio play through the whole house audio (Sonos Amps). I see the TV Line in option on the Sonos app but from what I understand it is only available if I’m using a sound bar option? Is there a way to play the audio that is playing through the whole house audio through the STRAZ1000ES at the same time? I assume this is what the “Works with Sonos” is all about but cannot figure it out. Plus, since the receiver acts as my main audio player f
