Sonos contributing to electronic waste
Sonos have recently started a trade in promotion in the UK with partnered retailers where you can trade in a Connect or Connect:AMP and receive a 'specified' discount off of a new Sonos AMP. They then modified the trade in promotion to be where you can trade in any Connect, Connect: AMP or (old gen) Play:5 for 30% any new Sonos product. I get that they are trying to sell more +/ new products but then contributing a massive amount to electrical waste. In their T&C's that they send to retailers they give a £15 credit (recycling fee) for the disposal of the old product. The old product is to strictly not be used or re-registered again or the retailer will be punished or loose their partnership. I think it's disgusting that Sonos are playing a huge role in generating unnecessary waste. All these units are perfectly fine and working but are to be disposed of for no reason other than that Sonos want to make money. Yes Sonos are giving a £15 credit for recycling but retailers won't and a
Impossible to connect my SONOS ROAM in Bluetooth
Hello, as I just received my SONOS ROAM I have tried many times today to get it connected in Bluetooth by following the procedure as described in that link.https://support.sonos.com/s/article/4989?language=frSo I kept pressing the button at the back but the blue light never went on and as a consequence the product had been left undiscovered for my mobile phone.Is there anyone who encountered the same issue & what should I do to get it solve.Thanks for your help
Anyone else experiencing severe APP LAG & slow loading/refresh with S2?
Ever since we took the plunge for S2 (including upgrading/purchasing 6 new Sonos unit for S2 compatibility) it’s been a real mess (system stability and WiFi issues)! The iOS version of the S2 app is very slow to load, lags almost always, and has a terrible screen refresh rate compared to ANY iOS app we have in the household. Now 20-40 seconds might not seem like long for an iPhone/Pad app to load/refresh, but if you’re trying to get some quick control over the volume or switching songs this is a STUPID amount of time! S1 was almost instant across all platforms and apps. While I realize Apple can take some blame for issues with iOS apps, why is S2 slow on PC and Amazon Fire (Android) devices as well? I’m guessing I’m not the only one, but Sonos sure seem slow to address this no matter how many times I’ve reported it to support. Anyone else think this degrades the Sonos experience beyond the obvious annoyances (especially compared to the hundred or so other apps we use with NO laggi
Who pre-ordered the new Sonos AMP and what are your plans for it?
I'm a little surprised pre-orders opened up and nobody is taking about it :-) Delivery by Dec 3rd according to Sonos which is awesome. I'm currently using a Beam and two Sonos Ones for rears and two stereo HomePods for music in the living room and bedroom as well as smart speakers for Homekit etc. I was planning on buying a Sonos sub tomorrow since they will be on sale for $599. I'm not sure if I will do that now since I am getting the Amp so soon and can use any sub so there seems to be little advantage to the Sonos sub. The Elacs are on sale right now so I could get tower speakers and sub from them for $669 from Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07B4WFWZF/ref=ox_sc_act_title_2?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07DL7XWBZ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1 I will continue to use the Sonos Ones as rears. Any thoughts on any of that? Any advantage to buying a Sonos sub for the app? I can't think of one. What are other peoples pla
Android Controllers and Setup, past the CR100 brick
As many of us are being thrown off of our CR100's, and forced onto an external third party device, please use this thread to say what device you will use or have tried, and advise what settings and configurations make it work. Please keep it on topic, use the "Save the CR100" thread to put the world to rights on the bricking of our functioning devices. Life must go on, The CR100 will die, lets try to help each other find our best solution. To start, I have just purchased a Lenovo Tab 7 Essential, 7" screen so similar overall size to the controller, ordered through Tesco Direct, very fast service available in 3 hours from ordering. Tesco added a discount so got it for £62, although They advertised it as the Tab 4 7" which is actually a different unit with slightly higher res and should retail at £99 rather than £69 anyway its fine at the right price. both run Android 7.0 So set it up with no security as I don't want a pin entry each time I pick it up. Installed Sono
Yesterdays (March 11th, 2016) Sonos Anouncment
Not as much talk about yesterdays sonos anouncment as I would have expected from such a passionate community. So what are people thinking? Obviously Amazon Echo has impacted SONOS but how do you go from hiring new people and planning a retail store to cutting staff? What's next ? Should we be concered about making more current investments in sonos hardware (I really want to buy a sub)? People have been posting for months about voice support and for years about DTS. The standard response is sonos doesn't comment on future enhancements or new products. We know what we have today and there pretty darn good products but we all want to be excited and look forward to what's coming next.
Sound cutting in and out on Sonos Arc after playing Dolby Atmos content on Apple TV 4K
Sound cutting in and out on my Sonos Arc after playing Dolby Atmos content on Apple TV 4K I’ve had my Sonos Arc and Sub Gen 3 for about two weeks now and I’m very satisfied with the sound quality, but I’m having some very annoying issues with audio cutting in and out… I have the latest LG OLED TV, a LG GX (same as the CX, just wall mounted). The only two boxes I have hooked up to my TV is an Apple TV 4K and a PS4 Pro, but I’m having sound issues on my Apple TV.Before I explain the problem, yes, I’ve pretty much done all the troubleshooting I can do. Plug everything in and out, check that the cables is properly connected, updated everything, the Arc, TV and Apple TV, everything should be up to date as I’m writing this post. Okay, so here’s the issue, with a half ish solution. My issue: If I play any content that supports Dolby Atmos on iTunes, Apple TV+, Netflix etc. and try to play some music through the Apple Music app or watch any video on YouTube on my Apple TV after that, the audi
anybody replaced their Connect with a Port?
Hi, begrudgingly having to replace my connect as the connect is the beginning of my mesh network & I will not be able to separate my system. Any forum members picked up a Port to replace their connect? I am running my current Connect through an Arcam Rdac into a classic NAD 3020. Any one experienced a degradation in sound quality using the Port? The recent ‘What Hifi’ review has made this potential purchase even more of a quandary. Didn't fancy shelling out the £279 before. The fact that this might actually be an inferior product to the connect makes me doubt it even more. i don’t want to get into a ‘bun fight’ about DACs & ‘subjectivity’ only want to hear from people who have actually upgraded please Any input greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Support for SMB v2 or v3
With all the recent reports and issues with the WannaCry ransomware I wanted to restrict use of SMB v1 on my home network. My NAS blocks this to the outside world but I wanted to secure things internally as well. I can configure the NAS to not support SMB v1 but this then prevents the Sonos controller app from seeing the share. When will Sonos support later versions of SMB? I had seen another thread on this somewhere and it sounded like it wasn't going anywhere. Is it possible to get an update on this please.
Party Mode is a problem. We need ability to create multiple groups of rooms!
We spend a lot of time grouping and ungrouping rooms. The issue is stems from my wife's use of Party Mode. She likes to use Party Mode while she is cooking. I ungroup the outside speakers so as not to offend the neighbors. I ungroup the upstairs when the kids go to bed. I turn everything off and then create a new group to set the morning alarm. In the morning, I create a group in the kitchen and family room to read the paper. There has to be a better way! Why can't we just create groups of rooms and label them something easy to remember like "Cooking", "Kids in bed", "Alarm" or "Morning Coffee"?
We need Audiophile Edition version of Port
First of I want to say that I have been using Sonos products since 2009. Besides Sonos, I had a lot of gear but none of it could match Sonos's ease of use and sound quality (for the price). I have to come clean and say that I am used to using Sonos everywhere and I love it. As an audiophile, I was looking to replace my aging Sonos Connect with Port and realized from all the reviews that it does not have a better digital output. This was a show stopper for me and it is a show stopper for all audiophiles out there. You are missing a very important niche of the market. It is taken by Raspberry Pie implementations and Bluesound and Aurelia, not because they have better software or support for services, but because they have a better digital output. That is it. Nothing else. Everyone I have talked to said they like Sonos but the digital output is jittery. I have tried a lot of solutions and even they sound better than Connect over coax they are all not easy to use, do not have support for t
New App Upgrade - HORRID
The new interface is nearly impossible to use... it doesn't even make sense how it works in relation to the previous interface which was better than good enough. As someone that has thousands of dollars invested in sonos I have to voice my utter disgust for this new app. PLs comment below and lets get Sonos to roll back from this atrocious attempt at an upgrade.
Resolved - Pandora Unable to Browse or asking for Authorization Code
Pandora decided to stop working today. It finally said it needed to be “reauthorized”. I hit the button and brought me to a page that asks for an activation code. But I don’t have an activation code… when I hit “forgot code” or “where to find code”, I get this... I forgot my code If you have forgotten your code, you can retrieve it from the product you are trying to set up. Simply select the Pandora option on your product, and it will give you a code to use on this page. But no matter where I look on the Sonos app, I don’t see an activation code. When I hit the authorize button it pulls me through a screen or two within the app but no code found there. I also tried to remove the service and re add. And have the same issue… I know this was much easier when I did it forever ago...
Why No Bluetooth Stereo on Move and Roam?
Why isn't stereo pairing via Bluetooth available on either the Move or Roam?I have Bluetooth speakers from 2015 that cost $50 each that have stereo pairing capability. I spent over $850 on a pair of Move's and was shocked to find they didn't have this capability. It's a little mind boggling of an audio tech leader (and premium priced) Sonos product. I'd be interested in purchasing a pair of the new Roam's, but without Bluetooth stereo pairing capability, I'm going to pass. My primary use for these would be the beach, which obviously doesn't have Wi-Fi. Are there any plans to add Bluetooth stereo pairing capability to the Roam or Move? If not, why?
No Airplay 2 for Playbar. GUTTED !!!!!
Extremely disappointed today to learn that the £700 current and only soundbar from Sonos will NOT have the AirPlay 2 feature, which we (Apple users) have been so looking forward to. Also gutted as we have just approved a major kitchen rebuild with integrated ceiling speakers and Connect:AMP and there's no alternative for that too. Airplay 2 for should be for ALL your top price products please. At least, a very strong trade in programme should be announced soonest.
Allow controllers to pair with multiple home systems
I love the sonos connect so much that I got one at home, at work, for my brother, for my father and for my father in law. My only complaint is that my controller is locked to one system at a time. When I move between different houses I should be able to pair the controller on my phone with their systems and have it remember me when I come back - without resetting. I've seen the tip about bringing them all to one place and setting them up together. But that's not always possible or desirable. There is no real security concern because I still have to be allowed on their network and I'd still have to push the buttons on the device. Seems like a relatively simple software problem to allow me to pair with multiple systems and remember all the systems I've paired with.
Has any posting here EVER produced anything ?
I have been a Sonos user, and have spent a LOT of money on their products since 2005. I have posted a few high priority, low difficulty suggestions over the years, and have watched *many, many* others do the same, and have not ever seen a SINGLE suggestion implemented. Can anyone name a single user-submitted suggestion that has been implemented by Sonos ?
Sonos Port: Wired connection but still music is interrupted
I'm using a sonos port which is connected to my recordplayer. The Port is connected via a LAN cable to my router (Sonosnet channel 1) and the music has been set to compressed...and is played via multiple One'sStill I'm losing audio; The music sometimes is not played for 10-20 seconds before it starts playing again.Also the sonos s2 app (on my Iphone) states that it can't connect to SonosAny idea how to resolve this? Eventhough sonos is wired, can it have something to do with my wifi?
can we please get dts hd and dts x it is 2022 afterall
hi just touching on this which im sure has already been asked plenty of times, but can we just get dts hd and dts x already it seems crazy to me to think a system that can cost up to and over 1500 hasnt the ability to play these modern formats, when you could pick up a standard av receiver for about 300 pound which would support all the mentioned formatsI have found myself more times than enough now sitting down to watch a film and simply getting mute audio just because it is in dts hd or dts x and quite alot of the time this is when i have friends and family over so it isnt a good look for the sonos brand that it cant produce sound for these types of movies or tv showsit is somnething that could quite easily be achieved since yous went and enabled dts standard after not supporting it, i feel if yous want to be seen as the go to soundbars yous then have to make sure its the go to for audio formats also which currently it isnt dont get me wrong the sonos eco system and products are fant
How to get old iphone app?
I had just been getting a few iPod gen 2s specifically to use as Sonos controllers. I'd got two of them in, and installed the old app before the new App came out yesterday. Unfortunately I hadn't yet downloaded the old app to the third before it was updated yesterday. The new app reports as not compatible with my third Gen2. How can I get the old one & install it?
Play 3 Powersupply fault.
Hi, My Play 3 died the other day and I am just outside my warrenty period :-( I contacted sonos customer services who did not help me in the slightest. I have now looked at the power supply board and seen that the board around one of the input capacitor has burnt out and or the cap itself. As customer services won't even sell me a new power board, does anyone have a circuit diagram for this board so i can attempt to repair it myself. ( I am competent with electronics). P/N: RN-002657 (board number) Date: 08-04-11 Also has anyone else experienced this fault. I am assuming a power surge has done this. Many thanks Jamietaylor13
