Configuring Connect and Sonos with an Onkyo Receiver
Hi All, I have just bought an Onkyo TX-NR626 7.2-Channel Network Audio/Video Receiver (Black) @ Amazon.com and I am planning to buy Sonos system to have it all configured in my apartment, but I am not sure If this would be possible. Am I able to have my receiver playing all my devices and sound been handled by Sonos Connect and its different types of wireless speakers? If I have my Xbox One been used with my receiver, does the sound plays @ the speakers available within Sonos' network created? Let me know how should I proceed. Rgds Marcelo
where to place soundbar when upside down seems to be the only option
I have a TV on the wall with a fireplace below it and a soffit above it. There really isn't room to mount it on the wall above or below without having the speakers fire directly into the wall or floor (see image below). So I wanted to hang the playbar upside down under the soffit as seen in the image. This actually points the speakers right at the listening area and seems to be the best option. But, it seems that the R/L channels might be incorrect if this is done? Is that still the case? Will SONOS add an over write feature to hard code what is right and left to the PB? Is there any other options here? For other people that have ceiling mounted the PB, did you use the standard wall mount or did you do something different to make sure it was secure? Thanks for the help!
My custom playlists in Spotify grayed out (won't play) in sonos
Recently the playlists I created in Spotify wont play through my Sonos system. The lists work fine on my PC's and sevices when using the Spotify app. While the playlist title appears in the playlist on the Sonos interface (desktop, Ipod and android) the songs themselves are greyed out.
How to get a volume indicator with playbar?
I have the playbar connected to a new uhd Samsung television. Everything seems to work fine except there is no indication of the volume level anywhere. I'm using optical to connect the playbar to the Samsung TV. Is there any way to get the volume level to show somewhere? It's really annoying not seeing a number or indicator change as the volume changes. Thanks for any help/insight
web controller for sonos !! runs on linux ..
well, sort of ;) Just thought that I would share this with the community - I am running a sonos controller from my web browser under linux ! happy times I just installed an extension called "arc welder" ([url=https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc]https://developer.chrome.com/apps/getstarted_arc[/url]) into my chrome browser. Arc welder lets you run android apps in your chrome browser and guess what ? the 5.3.1 apk of sonos controller for android works a treat go forth, run your sonos controller under linux. at last. All features of the android controller seem to work perfectly. Julian
Sonos not supporting Unicode UTF-8 (or any other UTF variant), only ASCII/ANSI
Hello, Over the past years, I have managed all my music using iTunes, i.e. converting albums to the proper format and creating playlists. During all those years, I had to convert the playlists (the m3u files) from the Unicode UTF-8 encoding to ASCII/ANSI (this is the default Windows Encoding) coding since the Sonos players do not support UTF8. This is a multi-step process which is very prone to errors (don’t ask me why since this shouldn’t be necessary at all). ASCII is well and truly dead and buried. See this quote from [url=https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100927014115AAiRExF:]https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100927014115AAiRExF:[/url] "Nowadays both ASCII and ANSI character sets are most effectively obsolete as we now have Unicode which currently provides 107,156 characters in a single character set and is expanding. See [url=http://www.unicode.org/charts/]http://www.unicode.org/charts/[/url] ." Other sites with similar wor
Sonos app on Xperia Z1 issues
Hi, I have an issue with the Sonos App on my Sony Xperia Z1 Compact where the tracks regularly skip to the next one half way through a song. It's definitely the Sonos app as I've tried it through the built in Walkman and Google Play music players and it definitely doesn't do it then. Any ideas on what could be wrong? I've done a search but can only find one link which doesn't help. (I can't paste that link as this my first post).
Computer refused to let Sonos connect to it
When trying to add Music to SONOS, I get the error "The Computer 'Pete-iMac' refused to let Sonos connect to it". I am using the following location when I get this error: /Users/peterellison/Music/iTunes However, when I specify the default location of /Users/peterellison/Music, it works fine. I need to specifically choose the iTunes folder and not the whole Music folder, since I have music production files in my Music folder, and I don't want 50,000 WAV samples being added to SONOS. Also to note, I've tried it with my Firewall off, and I have set up my Sharing setting correctly. In addition, my iMac is new. Previously I was running SONOS on Snow Leopard OSX without any issues. Now I'm on Yosemite OSX
Support for audiobooks bookmarks (.m4b)
I love the Sonos system but I am really disappointed there is no support for bookmarks in audiobooks (and podcasts). I love listening to audiobooks and since I'm from Sweden Audible is not an option if I want to listen to Swedish audiobooks. I buy my books in MP3 or on CD and make them real bookmarkable audiobooks in the .m4b-format with the program Audiobook Builder so they are not DRM-protected. It's also annoying that I can't play the audiobooks I have on my iPhone in the Sonos app, I need to use the computer version. So please Sonos, fix support for bookmarks in audiobook (and podcasts) so all your audiobook loving customer can bookmark their audiobooks. :)
Sonosnet vs Wifi - which is best?
I have a router and 3 extenders across my house, so my wifi is excellent all over the house and yard. If I hard use a Bridge/Boost or hardwire 1 speaker in, is that hardwired component the only one that pushes out Sonosnet? If so, I would think my own wifi network if probably stronger / more reliable than the one source for Sonosnet. Toughts? BTW, I plan on adding over 5 speakers, and a home theater setup. Will I be forced to use Sonosnet?
How to test surround?
I have a playbar, sub, and two play:1 speakers. I have a new Sony 4k TV and I am trying to watch Netflix in 4K with 5.1 surround. When I go to About in the Sonos controller I can see it says 5.1 but I am not hearing anything from the play:1s, not sure if I hear the subwoofer.
ZP90 + Power Amp
Hello all, I'm designing a whole home audio system for my house which is currently under reconstruction. I'd like to go with Sonos. I think it'll be more cost effective than going with a multi-room audio system that they're marketing nowadays. I also am in desperate need of great sound quality and power. I plan to entertain a lot. Because of pitched ceilings, I'm really leaning towards the SpeakerCraft in-ceiling speakers so I can direct the speaker downwards. Some rooms are larger, others are smaller. I have about 8 zones all with two speakers except one which has four. I plan to use 8 individual connects to control each zone individually and/or multiple zones simultaneously. I want separate amps (not a Connect:AMP) that won't break the bank to give me the power Connect:AMP won't. The SpeakerCraft speakers I'm leaning towards are 8 ohms/125W. I'm stuck when it comes to amplifiers. Some say pre-amp + amp for the Connect, others say not necessarily. I would prefer a multi-input/multi-
That's it, I've had enough
Playing music used to be an enjoyable experience before I got a Sonos system. I now spend more time trying to get Sonos to work than listening to music. I'm sick to death of it losing my speakers, my music library, stopping and starting when it does occasionally work and generally wasting my time. I plan to rip it all out and toss it in the trash!
My Harmony Remote doesn't play SONOS internet radio stations
My Logitech My Harnony Remote has added control of SONOS to its capability. The problem is that my saved radio stations will not play, and many times they freeze the remote. This is a new capability to the remote, and I can't seem to get an answer as to how to fix it.
