Apple Music Atmos Music Won't Play in Groups with at Least One Non-Atmos Speaker or Set
I discovered today Apple Music Atmos music tracks downgrade to non-Atmos when at least one non-Amos speaker or set is added to the playing group.The tracks John Coltrane's Blue Train played in Atmos when grouping an Arc + Era 300 surround set, Era 300 stereo pair, and Beam Gen 2 + Sonos One surround set.When I then grouped a Sonos One stereo pair the music dropped very briefly, the Atmos logo disappeared from the Sonos app Now Playing screen, and the music resumed in stereo. The difference was definitely audible and a downgrade.It's disappointing to have to downgrade to the lowest common denominator if I want to have music playing throughout my home.I'm going to read through the iTunes Package Format documentation, not sure if it will provide any insight. What's weird to me is Atmos music will play in my Beam Gen 2 + Sonos One surround set, which includes two non-Atmos speakers. This gives me some fleeting hope Sonos may be able to address this limitation via a software update.Have oth
2 sonos era 100 with submini or 2 era 300?
I am setting up audio in my office mostly listen to Jazz in that space, it is a small room 120 sq feet. For about the same price I can put 2 era 300’s or 2 100’s with a submini. I was thinking the 100’s with the submini would free the 100’s to do what they do best and the submini will fill bottom end? I dont really like the way spatial audio sounds on a lot of tracks so that is less of a concern for me. Thoughts?
SAMSUNG SMART TV + Sonos ARc
I use Samsung Smart Things to turn on my smart tv, without a soundbar connected everything works perfectly - the TV turns on / offAs soon as I connect the soundbar through the ARC port with Anynet+ turned on, the TV stops turning on, not only through Smart Things, but also with the help of Google Assistant in the soundbar itself. What could be the problem?
What should i get, 2 300's or 2 Fives?
For home theatre surround sound. I currently have the arc and 2 subs…. i just bought the sub today on my way to work, i have yet to install it… i have an open layout… living room and kitchen is all open space, pretty big space… ill put up pictures later so u can have a better idea… im having trouble on where to place the 2 back speakers though, i dont want stands and my only option i feel is towards the back walls that face the tv… my concern is that they might be too far back and i wont achieve the proper sound.Idk if i should get the fives or the 300s though.... i asked the employee at best buy and he didnt hesitate to say the 5s… when i researched ive seen mostly pictures of people having the 300s in their recent purchases for surround sound, so now im conflicted. What do u guys recommend?
Color of the cable with colored roam?
This has to be the dumbest question around here, but here goes:When buying a blue / red / green Roam, what color is the USB cable included? I’ve done the research and genuinely couldn’t find that info.A bit silly but I do want my charger to match the cable, otherwise it’s ugly.
Sanus Speaker Stand Upgrade
Hi All I am currently wanting to upgrade my Play One’s to Era 100’s, I have them attached to non height adjustable Sanus stands. I can see the 100’s locking screw is on the bottom of the speaker which means I can’t use them. Does anything exist allowing me to adapt these stands for the 100’s other than having to buy new speaker stands? Thanks
Sorry I am new to the world of Sonos.. just bought a house that has a compete sinks system. I want to input sound from a firestick. What I thought I would do is get a hdmi splitter that outputs a RC cables. Then purchase a Sonos PORT which then would allow that sound to be broadcast on all the other sonos speakers . Is this correct ??
Crossfade issues on playlist
Is anyone experiencing issues with crossfading on playlists. Random songs will play for around 10 seconds and then skip to next song. This happens in different rooms when using either Macbook or IPhone. Streaming service is spotify.If so is there a fix or do I need to wait for a bug fix update ?
Owners of Beam, should I upgrade?
Hi allHaving switched to Sonos, My collection of Logitech squeezeboxes has been sold. I now have a Sonos unit, which I adore, but I'm itching to upgrade to a beam. The question is if I will detect a noticeable improvement over my Yamaha YHT S400, which is ten years old. Side-by-side listening comparisons will be challenging, if not impossible.I appreciate it.
Feature Request - Lower Music Volume of Group When Activating Alexa
I recently got my first set of Sonos speakers (Amp + Soance + Roam) for my patio. The idea was that I would team the Roam with the Amp to have hands-free control of the system. So far, that has worked brilliantly!One of the few things I was annoyed with was that when I activate Alexa using the Roam, if music is playing on the grouped Amp, the volume does not lower for both members of the group. However, if I use the Sonos voice control, BOTH members of the group lower volume after activating the assistant. This greatly helps with voice commands.It would be cool if Sonos could create the same behavior for Alexa that the Sonos assistant does.
2x Era 100 -vs- Five
Hi, new Sonos enthusiast here, I never owned Sonos products before so I have no experience of any of them - yet!I’m looking for a setup for my medium living room + open kitchen, I’d say about 25m².This will be for music only, no home theater, no podcast No specific type of music I listen to a lot of different genres, so I mostly need a good balance, but I don’t want weak bass either I don’t need a lot of power though as I’m in an apartment and my neighbors won’t let me forget about them lolI’ve ruled-out the Era 300 as I don’t need Dolby + not really suited to my use-case because I need my music to fill a room where I’ll be moving a lot.So it comes down to either two Era 100, or one single Five (I don’t have the budget for two).Which would you recommend, and why?Thanks!
Connecting BeoSound 9000 CD Player to Sonos Amp
I have been trying to connect a BeoSound 9000 CD Player to a Sonos Amp. First I used a 5 Pin DIN to 2X RCA male cable to connect the BeoSound AUX to the Line In on the Sonos Amp. Just got very faint sound even with the volume turned all the way up. Checked on this Forum and realized the cable I had was probably wired for Line Out and the faint sound was cross talk between the pins on the DIN socket on the BeoSound.Next, I used a Kenable 5 Pin Male Din Plug to 4 x RCA Phono Male Plugs Audio Cable that I bought from Amazon. I used the black RCA plug in the left Line In channel and the yellow RCA plug in the right Line In channel on the Amp. I have tried the DIN plug in the AUX socket and the second Powerlink socket designed for connecting powered B&O speakers to the BeoSound. No sound out of the AUX socket. with the DIN in the Powerlink socket, I get mono sound only out of some components of my Sonos system but not the speakers or sub connected to the Amp the BeoSound is connec
How is a secondary search function performed in the Windows App (but the same applies for the iOS)For example, I want to find Bach Concerto for Violin and Oboe performed by Itzhak Perlman. This involves two different fields (Song and Artist) - yet only 1 search field is available.If I search on Itzhak Perlman, I get thousands of responses as he has recorded for decades.If I search on Bach Concerto for Violin and Oboe, I get at least hundreds of responses.I would have to manually slog through a lot of search results to find what I’m looking for.
Support for Audible Dolby Atmos
Audible now has a growing collection of Dolby Atmos material.Is that likely to be supported through the Sonos app at some point?I’m enjoying Atmos content much more through the Sonos speakers than while using headphones - so it’d be great to listen to this content with the speakers.
Fitness room sonos setup
I would like to add additional sonos products that will allow audio output in my fitness room. Currently my setup includes arc, sub 3, 2 era 300 speakers and an port in the family room. I would like to tie in an sonos speaker and/or soundbar or other product that will allow me to play the audio from my treadmill and rower. Also to play audio from the TV and DVD player. All while being connected to the main sonos system. What would be the sonos product or products that can cover my fitness room needs. Thank you
Playing a short .wav file crashes speaker
If I try to play a short .wav file, ie less than 45 KB, the speaker crashes and disconnects from the network.Anything above 50 KB or so seems to work.This is happening with all types of speakers including Play:5, Five, Play:1 and Amp.This is something new but I’m not sure exactly when the trouble started. I am currently on 15.2.1Has anyone else noticed this?
Sonos Roam is an expensive paperweight
I am beyond done with my Sonos Roam. It has always had issues connecting and staying connected to my network. I have experienced the same issue with Bluetooth. Every month or so I try it again but to no avail. I will step through the troubleshooting process – restarting the device and ultimately my router. Nothing works these days. It shows up in my Sonos app as not connected, and after all the troubleshooting I’m told to try again another time.I spent hours on the phone with Sonos support early on. They admitted this is a known problem that they are working to fix. It’s been close to a year and still no progress. I could not return or exchange it because I got it from Best Buy and discovered it’s uselessness after the return window. IMO, Sonos should not be selling defective products period. I very rarely write reviews but felt compelled to do so in an effort to warn others. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT!!!
Sonos/Sonance Garden Series + Outdoor TV Compatibility
Hello,I have a Sonos/Sonance Indoor/Outdoor setup consisting of:Living Room - Sonance In-Ceiling Speakers + Sonos Arc Soundbar + Sonos Sub + Sonos Amp Kitchen - Sonance In-Ceiling Speakers + Sonos Amp Backyard - Sonance Garden Series 8.1 System w/ SR 2-125 AmpI have a Russound Speaker Selector and Sonos Port which allow me to combine all of the above to play the same audio in any combination (or different audio through different sources). We have an outdoor television which we would like the ability to run audio through the (SGA) Sonance Garden Series (even if we can’t tie it to the other Sonance In-Ceiling or Sonos Arc Soundbar), but have run into a number of issues. 1st off, utilizing the RCA connections and an adapter which shows on the Sonos app as a “Line-In” connection, the latency is unbearable (even after maxing out the adjustment on the TV), and when connecting it to the Sonos Port, there can only be one input connected at a time, making it impossible to toggle between the SGA
Can sonos replace a kenwood Receiver
Hi everyone! I currently have the Kenwood KR-A4070 and speakercraft amp operating our built in speakers. We have 6 speakers. Can we replace the kenwood receiver and speakercraft with the sonos port? The system is pretty outdated - we added a bluetooth connect, but the sound is pretty inconsistent and we’re looking for an upgrade. would y’all suggest a sonos amp? Any suggestions appreciated! By the way, this is just used for music and is currently tucked away in a cabinet.TIA
