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
Hello,I just bought a new house that has in-wall speakers and a mount for a TV, but nothing else and I am new to Sonos. I’m looking for some advice on how to set up a home theater system.Here is the setup: there are a total of 8 in-wall speakers throughout the house that are all wired to one spot in a mechanical closet. The first 2 speakers flank a fireplace in the center of the living room, and the TV mount is off to the right side (i.e., not centered on the main 2 speakers). The TV mount is wired with power, HDMI, and ethernet. There are 2 more speakers behind the living room in the kitchen, which is open to the living room (so could be used a rears). There are 2 more speakers in an elevated loft space to the left of the living room which is open to the living room, so could be used with the TV theater setup but might throw the acoustics off since they are on the left and there is not a matching pair on the right. There are also 2 more speakers in a separate bedroom.One option I was

Hello,Bought a new Samsung CU8000 TV and connected Beam Gen 2 via eArc. My system also has two Ones as surrounds. With the TV set to pass through I get all the Dolby outputs. This works well for maybe 2 or 3 hours and then the sounds distorts slightly, it's like it cuts in and out quickly. If TV audio set to Auto sound is perfect but output is always PCM. Anyone had this and worked out a solution? Should I be concerned using PCM in terms of the quality of audio? Is this as good or worse than Dolby outputs?
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!
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 everyone. I have two Sons Play:1 speakers and a Sonos Beam. I want to connect these to my Samsung Smart TV and use them as a surround sound system. I have been able to set them up as surrounds on the Sonos app but can only get the Beam to connect to the TV. Is it possible to get all three of my Sonos speakers to connect to my Samsung TV?
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 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.
tl;dr - are you able to play from Amazon Music Unlimited to Sonos via connected devices or only via AirPlay or Bluetooth?I just treated myself to a pair of Era 100s (paired as stereo “Office”) and down the rabbit hole of hi-res audio streaming services, starting with Amazon Music Unlimited (Individual Plan).I prefer to browse and play through the streaming app, especially with Amazon’s additional labels (Atmos, HD, Ultra HD, etc.). I’m unable to play from the Amazon Music app to Sonos.I’m able to do this on Spotify. I’d stream through “another device on this network” (instead of “AirPlay or Bluetooth”) without any issue:When I try to do that through Amazon, it connects to Office but won’t go beyond this screen and music won’t play:After that, if I try to play Amazon through the Sonos App, I get a notification about device limits: So, I can play from Spotify to Sonos via network devices, but unable to from Amazon to Sonos via network. I can play from Amazon to Sonos with AirPlay but sou
Need to do an international travel with 1 stop. What are the recommendations for Move 2? Should I take it in my Carry-on or check it in? Is it allowed in a checked baggage? And if I do carry with me, any issues with scanners in the US and also during the change of plane? It’s also fairly heavy (7 pounds) so making sure I do the right thing
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?
Hello guys, I am new to the Sonos systemIf I use the Spotify App (On Desktop), will it recognize the Speaker group I set up from Sonos and play music to that group?At my work site, they want to have a main operator and a backup person (so that when the main operator is busy, this person can play music instead). Can I use one Spotify account to sign in on both Desktops?
