Single vs 2 paired Play5 experience
Hi, I own a Play5 (2 gen) for a few months and I am considering the benefits of buying another one for stereo pairing. For that, I would like to hear the honest opinion of people who tried both setups regarding whether the improvements with 2 speakers worth the money or not. What might affect my decision: -It stands in a medium size bedroom, plays mostly for personal use and in volumes from 15% to 50%, -I bought the Play5 simply for the sound quality over Play1 and Play3, not exactly for loudness. -I send my TV audio to it as well, but 90% of the time it's for music straight from Spotify. -I am more a fan of clean than powerful sound. Thanks in advance
Greyed out Menu ... can't quit, can't update network settings
Many menu items (including quit sonos and preferences) are greyed out. I can connect the play1 to the router directly and get it to play but its not finding the wireless. I have a new router though I'm pretty sure it was working since I got the new router. I did recently update the sonos controller. what the h can be done here?
Stream phone output sound directly
I would like to use my Sonos as a speaker and just send whatever I'm listening to directly to one of my Sonos devices. Shouldn't that be possible when we are on the same wifi? As an example I like to listen to audiobooks from Storytel, and would like to "forward" that to sonos. Any ideas on how to accomplish that? Thanks
Connect:Amp vs Connect with NAD Receiver for JBL speakers
New to Sonos with a Connect:Amp running a couple of ceiling speakers quite nicely. My question concerns a vintage stereo system with very nice JBL Control Monitor speakers and a partially dead NAD 7020 integrated receiver. Is it better to repair/replace the receiver and add a Connect - no amp thereby being able to connect turntable etc. and still use the JBLs ... or junk the receiver and add the Connect:Amp. Looks like for the $150 cost difference in the Connect vs. Connect:Amp, I'm better to keep/fix or replace the receiver. Seems a break even proposition. Will the Connect:Amp be equal to the NAD is powering the JBLs? Am I missing something?
Vebos of Flexson muurbeugel (Vebos or Flexson wall mount)
[b]Nederlands:[/b] Goedenavond, ik ben sinds een paar dagen in het bezit van twee play 5's en een sub. De play 5's staan als boekenplank speakers (verticaal) op een dressoir, maar de sub staat momenteel op de grond. Dit is een nare plek ivm gevolgschade door stofzuigen. Ik zou de subwoofer dus graag willen ophangen aan de muur. Ik ben bekend met twee merken die muurbeugels verkopen, namelijk Flexson en Vebos. Ze zien er redelijk hetzelfde uit alleen plaatst de Flexson beugel de sub verder van de muur, en is zo'n 20 euro duurder. Welke beugel raden jullie mij aan en waarom? Bij voorbaat dank! Mike [b]English: [/b] Goodevening, i have recently purchased two play 5's and one sonos Sub, the play 5's are positioned vertically on a dresser, but the sub is placed om the floor. This is a nasty place for the sub because of possible damage due to vacuuming etc. I would like to mount the sub onto the wall. I am familiar with two brands that make and sell brackets for the sonos Sub, Flexs
My experience using a Connect (ZP90)
This is for anyone who is planning on buying a Connect! I hope to also cover concerns that you have that I also had before I bought one! I am posting this on Sonos's official website because I have LOTS of good to say about my experience! Why would I post something negative about Sonos here? (this doesn't mean I am biased ;p) TL;DR: It's gr8 and I now use them as my desktop speakers. My Sonos is now WAY more versatile than normal speakers and input delay isn't an issue even though it working through your WiFi. What made me buy a Sonos Connect? Was there any input delay? Was the delay significant in gaming and other applications? Was it easy to setup? I'll answer all of these! First off, I chose to buy a Connect due to the lack of inputs available for my two Sonos Play 1's. I loved the build quality and sound these speakers produced, and found the only way to get a line in was to buy a Sonos Connect. Even though the whole setup cost me almost £600, it was worth it!

Sonos Boost vs Brigde
Hi there, Could someone please explain whats the main difference between Sonos Boost vs Sonos Brigde ? Yes, i use 5.1 Sonos system and all components connected to my home WIFI router without wires. So far so good, just few times noticed "unable to play Spotify song and skipping " when WIFI was in heavy usage at home (it was 4 users at home all were using same WIFI network). So my question, whats the best to improve performance for Sonos 5.1 - Boost or Brigde ? Thanks in advance
remote volume control
I'm looking for a way to remotely control Sonos volume without phone/tablet/controller. I would like a simple device that provides volume up/down/mute. Sometimes it's nice to walk up, press a button and mute a zone (or change volume, etc) without the need to pull out the phone, unlock, go to sonos app, select the zone, and then change the volume. Ideally, this remote volume control would be assigned to control one or more zones. I've had Sonos since the days of the original controller and the zp100s. Back then I wired volume controls in rooms to achieve what I'm describing above. Now I am looking for the flexibility of a wireless solution with better Sonos integration. If you are familiar with Philips Hue lighting devices, then what I am looking for would be something similar to the Hue dimmer device which allows you to easily control one or more lights without using the Hue app.
No playlists have been added to your Sonos playlists yet.
When I try and add tracks to a playlist I get the following message: No playlists have been added to your Sonos playlists yet. The playlists do show up momentarily but are then replaced by the error message - it is really quite annoying and hope that it can be resolved quickly. Many thanks
How to play TV audio on Play:1 with only DirectTV and XBox
Hi - new to Sonos and received a Play:1 as a gift - great sound and considering a second, but before I do, I wanted to wrap my head around how best to play TV audio on my Plays. With all the hype of watching the big game on Sonos, this must be easy but I can't think of how with the equipment i have. I would rather not get a Roku or Chomecast. I have DirectTV and XBox One. I could use an audio out from these but that makes little sense as it only goes to one device. How to get on the WiFi network? Has anyone done this?
Can't group my Play 1 with ZP90
I've got a my cd player running through a ZP90 and into an amp which works fine, I can control the volume with that from the controller on my phone. When I group this to my Connect Amp I'm able to play the cds through the speakers connected to this amp and am likewise able to play tunes off my phone across both of these systems, The problem comes when I try and add my Play 1 to this group, the zp90 drops out and I can no longer play cds or music to the zp90. Can any one make any suggestions? While you're at it I've got two CR100s from the States but haven't been able to add them to my system. Have tried all the standard suggestions but got nowhere. Thanks in advance
How to completely uninstall sonos controller for mac
I want to completely remove the sonos controller and undo all changes made on installation and attempted music library access. I deleted the app and one folder that was just sonos files, but when I search for recent files, I find sonos made changes to more than a dozen system files. Is there an uninstall program? If not, how do I undo the changes the sonos program made to my computer?
Rear surround placement advice
I'm planning to use two Play 1s for my rear surround speakers but my room doesn't have a convenient way to place each speaker the same distance from the viewing position. The easiest setup would have the right rear located 6 feet behind the viewing position at a 45 degree angle (slightly elevated) and the left rear almost directly behind the viewing position. Does anyone have any experience with this? Would this arrangement totally compromise the surround experience.? Thank you!
Music Library keeps disappearing
Hello, I am running Controller for Mac version 7.0. Every since I updated to it, when I try to browse my music library it shows there us "No Selections are available" I have deleted my folder in preferences where iTunes stores my music and added it again a few times. It will add all the music and will show up in the music library, but then it will all drop off by the time I go to use the system again. Any ideaS? Thanks
Sonos Connect with Amazon Echo Integration
I don't believe this is yet possible, but wanted to confirm. Is there a way to control my Sonos Connect with my Echo? It would be nice to be able to play different play lists or artists via Sonos Connect. I know you can do this with the speakers but was looking for Echo-Connect integration too.
Panasonic Viera Tools Netflix, 5.1 Output Issue
Hello, I have a panasonic P50S30 series plasma 50". Purchased the Playbar recently and then realized that TV does not pass 5.1 from HDMI sources to Optical. However, since Viera tools have Netflix and Amazon Prime Video apps installed, it is supposed to be able to pass 5.1 DD thru the optical. It DOES in case of Amazon Video but Netflix only does Stereo? wonder if anyone seen a similar issue? Looked up on Netflix support, they say try changing the audio setting. I did not find Audio or CC setting on Viera Netflix App on my TV? Any help?
Internal error - Invalid Atom
I use the Sonos application on Windows 10 and on Android devices. When I look at the list of my "Imported Playlists" i See a large number (about 34) of playlists with the name "Internal error - Invalid Atom". It looks like they are old "queues" that I created at various times. Why were they created and how do I get rid of them?
