Setting up SONOS on a dual band network
Simple question really.... I'm about to set up a Play:1 and Play:3 and have a few questions. My router is a dual band Trendnet TEW-818 transmitting 3 networks 2.4 (b/g/n legacy devices) , 2.4 (n only IP Cams) and 5(n/ac modern hi-speed devices). My PC and android device both connect on the 5Ghz network. Now I know that SONOS runs on 2.4 (b/g) but when I'm setting up the system do I have also have to put one of the devices also on the 2.4 network? And once setup will I be able to use the the PC and android on 5Ghz and still control the speakers? My router automatically passes traffic between all the networks, for example on my Android I can see all devices on my network both wired and wireless regardless of network. Thanks in advance.
Sonos:Connect Delay Line-In
Hi all, Any suggestions to over come my issue, I use a connect, and connect a dj-mixer on line-in to play the sound to my Sonos system. The problem is that the connect gives a quite big delay in the sound stream, that it not appreciated when being the house dj. And the delay increases when I start to group different zones. Any suggestions to minimize that delay ?? I can't understand the delay, due to when you have the playbar, sub and surround speakers, there is "no" delay (noticeable) in the sound stream from the TV (delay have not been adjusted in TV) . So obviously the equipment can handle it without that noticeable big delay... Caio! /B
Speaker in multiple groups
Hi all currently I have 1 Playbar, 1 Sub, and 2 Play1. All grouped together in "Living Room". I would like to be able to create two groups: - Living Room TV (all of the above) - Living Room Musik (just Sub and Play 1 or Sub and Playbar) right now this is not possible as a single speaker cannot be in more than one group ......
Play 1 Battery Pack
There are many posts and request for a portable or outside speaker on ask.sonos and others for a battery powered Play 1. The Play 1 is plugged in from the bottom with a very flush and tidy fitting power lead. This makes me think and others might agree that a battery pack could be developed that works like a drill battery and plugs into the bottom of the Play 1 - maybe the power lead could also plug into the bottom of the battery pack to recharge in situ so it is seamless in design and can be used whilst recharging or if battery power is low. I would opt for a lithium-ion polymer battery as: Excerpt from wikipedia “The result is a "plastic" cell, which theoretically could be thin, flexible, and manufactured in different shapes, without risk of electrolyte leakage.”
Sonos system losing connection to controllers.
My Sonos system (Bridge & Play 3) has been working flawlessly for years up until about 2 months ago. Now when I try to use my system, my phone, laptop, tablet, and home computer suddenly can't find the system. Rebooting the system does not fix this issue. Instead I have to reboot the system, then re-attach my controller devices to the bridge. The system will then work for a day or two and then this process repeats all over again.
Spotify doesn't work on sonos
I'm in China, use spotify daily with their app and I never had any problem, it works perfectly. Sonos officially support Spotify, but seem the in China it's a big problem. I finally been able to set-up my spotify account on sonos after about 3 hours of pain, through the poorly designed android and windows app. Now I got it working, but the songs would only play for 30-60 seconds before the connection is lost because it says the internet connection is too slow. I'm streaming Spotify with their own app and HD Netflix movie through my home connection and never had any problem, why the hell sonos is not able to stream a damn song ? Why the hell i cannot directly play my spotify library stored on my phone to sonos since their streaming is so bad ? I believe both these company focus first on how to make max money and have long forgotten about their costumers needs as they seem to never have talked or agreed to have some sort of common library... we are in 2015, not 1995 ! This is deepl
Why does sonos controller and connect stop playing when audio is quiet?
I have a Late 2013 Mac pro and I'm using the headphone (stereo) line out which connects to the line in on a connect. (not the amp, just the bridge). Don't get me started on the fact that the play3 has no line in - $300 later I got over it and bought a connect. From there I connected the connect directly to two Play:3s. I had tried wirelessly connecting to the speakers, but it was so delayed over wireless that it made watching any video unbearable and out of sync. Airplay, even worse. So much for wireless hifi eh? Connecting the speakers directly with ethernet cables fixed the delay but now I have another annoying issue that I can't figure out how to make go away. If the audio output in a video (say youtube) stops or even gets too quiet, the sonos controller automatically switches itself from play mode to stop mode. If I leave the controller open on my computer I can sit here and watch it happen consistently in any quiet part of a video or song. If I press play on the sonos contr
Playbar with new Connect (DTS solution)
I have the same problem like many others here that Sonos offers the perfect speaker solution for my home theater setup, but I would like the option to have DTS, or possibly Dolby TrueHD / DTS:Neo... Maybe even create a 7.1 setup or have the possibility to add Dolby Atmos or Auro3D in the future with a simple software update and the additional speakers... But we all know the problem is the optical connection, why not create a Connect2 or a PlayHub (call it whatever), that has one or more HDMI input(s) and one HDMI output, that can use the DTS track (or other HD audio-tracks) and sent it via the network connection to the playbar and surround speakers. This way you could bypass the optical connection which is a bottleneck at the moment (bandwidth wise). This way customers who want more out of their PlayBar hometheater setup, can buy this new Connect or PlayHub and get everything they need! Everybody else just use the Playbar the way its originally intended to...
Tunein Radio "Stuttering"
Hi, When I listen to the radio (Tunein) on Sonos, I sometimes get what I would describe as a sort of stuttering, which is particularly noticeable on long-held musical notes. I have a Sonos Connect linked to a Cyrus stereo, where it is acute, but it is also noticeable on my Play1 (now that I am listening for it) Powering down the Sonos system and restarting seems to address the issue, so I'm inclined to think it is not broadband performance. If I switch to another music service, such as Google-play, I don't get the issue. Also, streaming from my local library across the LAN doesn't exhibit the problem either. I've tried copying the native streaming links from the BBC and adding my own radio station, but I get the same issue. I listen to a mix of BBC Radio 6 and 2. Any ideas or help gratefully received. Cheers Mark
Hello, just a question ... does anyone uses macronos on his android device ? It seems that this little app can easily do what sonos doesn't want to implement i.e. stream to sonos directly the music you play on your phone (spotify, youtube, ...). Another question does anybody tried to install macronos on a mac with a virtual box or other solution. Thank you and sorry for my English
I am trying to connect my sonos connect to my yamaha rx 675 receiver
I am trying to connect my sonos connect to my yamaha rx 675 receiver but not getting the speakers from the receiver to also have the music from the play 1 speaker. Not sure what I've done wrong. I have the audio out on the receiver to the audio in on the connect. Help. I do have output from connect to input in receiver as well as output from receiver to input in connect. Still can't get sonos to play on yamaha or vice versa. Help.
Pandora: "Account not found", but it exists!
I can't seem to add Pandora. I'm using Controller for PC with Connect:AMP. I was able to add my songza and google music accounts. When I tried to add my Pandora account, it says "connecting" for a while, and then gives a "Account not found" error. I know the account exists because I can login with the same credentials on Pandora.com. I then tried to create a brand new account. That too gave the same error. Version: 5.2 (build 28183040) Hardware Version: 22.214.171.124-1
5.2 Update lost all Sonos players and settings
Everything was fine, prompted on my Mac to update the Sonos app, didn't realise it was going to update (or trash) everything. Allowed the update to happen, it seemed to go OK, until we then tried to connect to the system with our phones. All connections had gone, couldn't even see the Sonos network, even though it was playing music at the time. Had to reset everything and start again, even down to reconnecting music services and all favourites. Very inconvenient, not happy!
The ability to 'Favourite' artists, albums, playlists and tracks on TIDAL from Sonos
TIDAL on Sonos is great (excluding a slight issue I am having at the moment but the fab support team are working hard to resolve it for me) but what is missing is the ability to 'Favourite' TIDAL playlist, artists, albums and tracks directly from the Sonos App. For example, if I hear a track I like by a new artists and want to favourite that artists so they appear in the 'My Artist' section of TIDAL on Sonos I have to leave the Sonos App, open TIDAL, search the artist and then favourite them... a long winded way you'll all agree.
Can't fast forward or jump to a certain time while playing Google Play Music Radio station
When playing songs from Play Music, you can fast forward them no problem. Or jump to a certain time using the time line. But when doing the same using Play Music's Radio stations, you can't do any of that. Just go Next, upvote, and downvote. Can you please add the missing functionality?
Request for feedback: Shuffle
Hello. My name is Ben Smith and I head up Product Management for Experience, Software, and Developer Programs at Sonos. I wanted to get more feedback from you all on your expectations for Shuffling tracks in your queue.

When you select shuffle what do you want to happen? What don't you want to happen? Thanks! Ben
