Wirelessly connect whole sourround system (Beam + 2 Era 100) to iPad/Macbook, who stream a movie to a wired projector. Is it possible ?
Hey, I‘m looking to buy a home theater surround system (basically a Beam and 2 Era 100s). I want to know, if I can connect the whole system to my iPad or MacBook, which streams the movie to a wired projector. Edit: The iPad/MacBook both support AirPlay 2. Thanks in advance for your response !
Hi Def streaming services through SONOS - does Apple Music work or not?
I’m pretty confused here and am struggling to get an answer. A long time ago I had a Deezer 1 year trial of their Hi Def audio service. It played through all my SONOS equipment at that time - certainly pre S1/S2 split on an original Play 3 and a number of Connects which all became defunct later. I didn’t maintain the subscription as I didn’t want the cost, and have used Spotify since.Now I’m looking at Apple Music. It offers a Hi Def option on music files - lossless - and even though I’m on S2 and have upgraded all my SONOS equipment to latest models, I may or may not be able to play the Hi Def audio through any of it. Really? We’ve gone backwards over the last 10 (?) years. I’d be interested to get a clear answer. I’m struggling to believe that SONOSNET is incapable of running a Hi Def stream around it.If it works, then I’ve got a reason to swap over from Spotify (who won’t offer Hi Def) to Apple. If it doesn’t work, then there is no reason. So Apple if you are listening, then it woul
Sony BRAVIA OLED with Sonos AMP & Sonance Speakers
I am looking to purchase the Sony 77" Class - A80CK Series - 4K UHD OLED TV along with the Sonos Amp with 2 Sonance (in ceiling) speakers and 1 subwoofer. I’m planning to use the Sony OLED built in (into the TV screen) speakers as my front sound and use the in in ceiling speakers as my rear sound, enhanced by the subwoofer. My concern is whether or not I will have issues with sound using the Sony Speakers along with my Sonos/Sonance setup? Is it as simple as connecting all devices to the Sonos Amp and I shouldn’t have any issues? Thanks for your direction!
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
Do you think the new Era 100 is going to fit and look good on the Sanus Outlet Shelf?
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
Sonos Radio HD content
Spatial Audio/Atmos musicWith the launch of Era 300, Sonos radio HD should really be providing spatial audio/atmos mixed music on the service. Currently it appears that only Apple Music and Amazon Music Unlimited are providing access to this, and each requires a separate and specific subscription. I’d like to see this coming from Sonos Radio HD as the Era 300 speakers launch this month. Would that be possible? Moderator edit - combined posts
TV led Sound Out for ARC
I have an LG tv and a Sonos Beam in full surround sound config. This forces the TV to change the Sound Out menu to “HDMI ARC” When I change the Sound Out menu to “Internal TV Speaker” it immediately changes back to “HDMI ARC” This is not good for watching TV at night. This means that the ARC signal is Sonos led. Is there a way for the ARC signal to be TV led?
Automatic switching between surround and line in with Sonos Amp
I just finished my AV setup as follows: TV w/ HDMI cable to Sonos Arc, plus Sonos Sub and Sonos Amp connected via ethernet (and wifi). I have a turntable and CD player going into a switch that’s connected to the Amp’s line in. I also have 2 satellite speakers connected to the Sonos Amp.I’ve been able to get the satellite speakers to work as surround by putting all 3 devices in 1 “room” on the app. I’ve also been able to get the turntable and CD player to play through the line in by creating a 2nd “room”, assigning the Sub and Amp to it, and then enabling both room1 and room2 during playback. To go back to watching TV, I have to reassign the Sub and the Amp to room1.My question is this: Is there a way to save these 2 configurations in the app, or some alternate setup, that makes it easy to switch between the two? Having to reassign the products to different “rooms” each time you want to switch between the line-in media and TV is quite cumbersome.
ERA 300 Rear Surround Placement (Couch against Wall)
Hey all, Right now I have a beam gen 2, sub gen 3 and two Sonos ones in the home theater setup. I've got to balance my desires for good audio with my wife's desire for room aesthetics, so stands and wall mounts are not an option. Our couch is against the wall and that isn't something that can change.I'm considering getting new Era 300s to replace my Sonos One surrounds. Because our couch is pushed right up against the wall, so currently I have the surrounds sitting on matching shelves that are on either side of the couch, pointing at the listener on the couch. I've used airplay to try make up for the fact the speakers are not behind the listener.On top of the shelves for the 300s is where I would put them. There would be the clearance above the speaker required with a straight line to the ceiling, and they would be clear on either side of pointing straight away from the wallIf I got era 300s, which way would be best to position them? If I point them at the listener, the side firing dri
Era 300 pair to replace Play 3s
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
SonosNet & Era 300
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?
Need advice on choosing Sonos Arc or Beam
Hi all,Sorry in advance for the long post.I’m looking for advice on whether to get the Sonos Arc or the Beam, and this seemed like the best place.Details:My home theater currently consists of movies and TV coming off the internet, and I have music either coming off my phono and/or my other Sonos devices (one One, one One SL, and I have a Connect that I use for legacy stuff).For the home theater (not for the two Sonos speakers), everything goes through a Yamaha receiver (roughly 10 years old) and goes to my “surround sound” setup. Because of the room (we bought everything when we lived in another house) I don’t really use the subwoofer or the center channel speaker much anymore.It’s in the living room (roughly 14 ft. x 16 ft), with a 10ft. flat ceiling. The house is from the early 1900’s, so the walls are plaster. Within the room are a couch, loveseat, upholstered wingback chair, two sets of large drapes, books, and a rug.We’re getting a 55” inch Atmos-enabled TV (48” on the bottom)
