Play 1 sound quality
Have just invested in a Sonos set up for the first time, and took the plunge with a pair of Play 1's, figuring that every single review without exception said they sounded fantastic. I'm slight underwhelmed to be honest. They're on wall brackets about 8 foot apart, have run Trueplay & the sound quality is not blowing me away. Listening to radio stations on tune in does sound pretty damn good, but streaming spotify/Google play music, it sounds a bit flat and undynamic. Anything with a bit of complexity, there is no detail, the bass is a dull thud and it all sounds a bit muddled. I did so much research before buying and reviewers and consumers alike rave about the crystal clear sound and finding details they've never heard before etc. Am not finding any of that. I'm far from an audiophile, I just like clear dynamic sounds from my system Any thoughts? Run trueplay again?
Is my replacement speaker used ??
Hi all I have a Play 5 speaker which was distorted in the high range (tweeter) from time to time. It had only been in use less than a week, thou it was bought 8 month ago. I called the Danish supportline, who was very kind and serviceminded. he could also see, from the log file, that the first time it was power up, was less than a week ago. So after a little conversation, he said he would send me a new speaker, and then could i return the old one. Was really pleased by his knowledge, and kindness. I have now received my new speaker, but now im not so sure if it´s a new speaker or a "old" return speaker which they have repacked, because og the label, and that the corner of the inside case was damaged even thou the outer case (from the shipment) wasn't. I can se that it has been assigned a new VPN number (please see the attached photo), is there any good explanation for that, and what is that number ??[img]a40d99f4-2472-41ec-9b2a-ced1ffe88747.jpg[/img]
Changing WIFI, none of the support articles work
I have just changed my wifi connection and am now trying to reconnect my 2x Play 1 speakers, but it is not working. Step one: I have followed the instructions that the sonos controller recommends on how to change the wifi settings. Plugged my speaker into the router with an ethernet cable, but my speaker does not appear in the sonos controller as it should. It just keeps telling me that I need to follow the instructions. So I am going round in circles. Step two: I tried 'setting up a new system' from my phone. I get to the point where there is meant to be a temporary 'sonos' wifi network I am meant to join, but the network never appears. So I can't progress with those steps either. Can anybody help? Why does Sonos make this so difficult? Surely I should just be able to adjust the wifi settings in the app!
Ethernet vs wireless mac address
I live on a school campus with a secured wireless system where I have to register every device I have onto the network with their mac addresses. When connecting, it tells me I need a 12 character line for the address but my sonos products give me 13. Which character do I drop for the wireless connection and for the wired connection for my sonos?
My electric piano and Connect/Sonos 5
Hi, I have an old electric piano which I would normally connect to a mixer, and then to an amp/speaker combination. I also have 2 Sonos 5's (in our living room). I am thinking of moving the piano to the living room. If I got a Connect, would I be able to use my piano with my Sonos 5's? What does the Connect 'expect', in terms of a signal? Many thanks.
When is Echo Support coming?
Hi Guys, Let me start off by saying I love you guys. I have a Playbar, Play 5, Play 3, Connect, and am looking to complete my Playbar setup with a couple of Play 1's and a Sub soon. I also have an Amazon Echo and it is awesome. In fact, it's a bit too awesome and I find myself asking Alexa to play music just because if I want to hear a song, all I have to do is ask; I don't have to bust out my phone. The problem is the speakers on the Echo are mediocre at best. I would much prefer the sound to come out of my Sonos system. With the "internet of things" really starting to take off - integration is going to become more and more important. Amazon Echo has sort of a plugins-type interface called skills. https://developer.amazon.com/public/solutions/alexa/alexa-skills-kit/getting-started-guide It would be amazing if you guys could create an skill for Sonos. Something like "Alexa, tell Sonos to play *playlist*." or music by _____ or x from pandora. I've done some searc
Whole Home Audio - Will this setup worK?
Hello, I'm building a new home and trying to plan out a whole home audio system based around Sonos, Amazon Echo Dot, Connect Amps, and external speakers. My main goals are to 1) have access to Sonos in most rooms of house, 2) Use Echo Dot, Connect Amp and ceiling speakers to voice control music in kitchen and master bathroom, 3) have 5.1 surround sound using playbar, subwoofer, and ceiling speakers. I would like to lay out my plans and hoping you all can tell me if it will work, how i could improve it, and if i'm missing anything. And of course all smart ass comments to tell me how stupid I am are welcome 1) Kitchen: Amazon echo dot wired to Connect Amp...and Connect amp wired to ceiling speakers in the kitchen. Basically want to be able to say to the Echo Dot to play music off Spotify/Amazon/Sonos. Also, at times I want the option of being able to use my iphone/SONOS App to play music on the kitchen speakers and zone them with other rooms if/when I want to (ie: play a song
Trueplay with Playbar?
I received an email from Sonos informing me that Trueplay was now available for Playbar if I had version 7 of the software which I do (I have 7.0.1 on all my iOS devices). When I went to check the apps Trueplay wasn't there for the Playbar. I checked online updates in the app and it says "up to date". Just wondering if there was another update coming or, was Trueplay pulled from availability?
I miss the REAL mute button!
Hi I REALLY miss the ability to mute a single zone! Why did you change this! So many times I want to mute just one for a moment without stopping the other grouped zones. This is really a downgrade for me. Any chance you can make this configurable, or somehow still allow the mute button to function as an actual mute button?
Sorry we can't connect to Sonos figured (2.4ghz or 5ghz)
I have been having a problem with 2x Play 5s, the support team have given up after telling me to get a new router but not much insight besides that and there must be something on your network. Situation is that mobiles connect fine to Sonos machines but a laptop -Sony Vaio - fails to connect. Modem is Technicolor MediaAccess TG589vac. It is a 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz modem. I have finally figured out that the issue is for some reason the Play 5s are connected to 5Ghz (Support said that's notthe case) when I was advised Sonos only works on wifi (without Bridge) on 2.4Ghz. It is quite confusing as I have to somehow either switch off the 5Ghz so Sonos goes to 2.4Ghz alone or somehow move my laptop to 5Ghz so it can control Sonos app. Any other ideas?
Compilation Artist Search
I know this has been asked many times in the past, but when I search for an artist it does not search compilation albums while sorted in itunes compilation or Album Artist. I find this incredibly frustrating as i have hundreds of compilation albums. I have switched on contributing artists, but the search function still doesnt search them. Can this be added at all in the future?
Can you wall mount playbar flush to tv?
Hi all I'm about to wall mount my playbar underneath the TV. Due to the design of the wall mount cables are not easily concealed. In the mounting instructions it recommends to leave 1" of space between the bottom of the tv and the playbar. My question is, is there a potential issue in mounting it flush to the tv? I have an LED tv, and by mounting the playbar flush to the tv the cables would be concealed behind the tv. Will the speaker interfere or damage the tv in any way? Magnetic field for example? Thx
Large echo room
Hello if I may ask for some advice before any purchase, I live in a converted barn and the main living area is large with 5m vaulted ceiling and I wanted to ask how Sonos would perform in this space as our present and old 5.1 system when playing a movie seems to lose clarity on speech with all the background noise whereas watching say sky news with just the newscaster speaking is clear and I think it's the room and want to change to an updated better quality system and thought the experience of folks in this community maybe able to add some wisdom as to what sonos set up would work best, thank you
