2 rooms with the same name?
Hello! So I just bought my first sonos setup, consisting of 2 play:1's and 1 play 5. These 3 will provide sound for the living room. I will add future speakers but this is it for now. The installation went pretty fast and easy. I hooked up the play 1's as a stereo pair and named the room for them 'living room'. I did exactly the same for my play 5, also naming it 'living room'. Now when I want to stream music, the speakers are likely to be in different room, and I always have to group them, although they have exactly the same name. Is there any way just to add the 3 together? Or do I always have to group them together before I start streaming? Thanks in advance! Laurens
Connect amp and subwoofer
I have got a connect amp, pair of Rega RS1 speakers & a velodyne impact micro subwoofer. Speakers are wired into the sub, from the sub to the connect amp. Sub is wired directly to the connect amp. When playing music at a low-medium volume the sub does not sense a signal and work. If I turn the volume right up for a split second and then down again the sub senses a sign and begins to work. I want the the sub to be working no matter what the volume level is. Any ideas? Thanks, Rob
How to connect multiple hifi separates to play through a Sonos system
I have a Sonos 5:1 surround setup with PlayBar, Sub and two Play 1s, all connected via the PlayBar to the TV. I also have a good old set of wired hifi separates, i.e. a Pioneer turntable, tuner and stereo amplifier, and a TEAC twin cassette deck. I'd like to be able to use this equipment to play my record and cassette collections, as well as use the tuner, all through the Sonos system. There's a lot of information available if you just want to hook up a turntable to the Sonos, or if you want to stream music from Sonos to a separate amp; however, I can't find anything to help me know how to simultaneously connect the multiple hifi separates listed above so that I can play these through the Sonos system. Can anyone help me please? Thanks in advance.
Play:1 as a bedside speaker
Does anyone have comment on using a Play:1 as a bedside speaker? I've had a few clock radios with screens that are too bright or volume that can't be adjusted to a level suitable for nodding off. The Play:1 would seem to fit the bill, with the sleep and alarm functions. I have seen some previous posts about the challenge of adjusting volume at low levels. I already enjoy my two Play:5s and a Playbar... and am wondering if a Play:1 would work well next to my bed. Thank in advance, Dave
Sonos doesn't like Eero?
I just replaced my ASUS router with an Eero mesh network. On the "base" Eero, I plugged in a switch that is used to enable my in-wall ethernet network. I have another switch in a different room where I have other devices hardwired to my network. On that switch is a BOOST. That's the only Sonos product hardwired to my network. When I enabled the Eero mesh network, the Sonos network went dark. I power cycled that switch and the BOOST was able to be added to the iOS controller. I was resigned to adding all my zones one by one again. Unfortunately, they're not wanting to be added. Literally the only physical change to my network was the Eero router(s). I did not change the network configuration at all (i.e. same SSID, etc.). Anyone know what might be happening?
Alarm, what a waste of a great feature!
I currently have 3 Play 5's in the house (Master Bedroom, Kitchen, & Garage). They work great and I'm finally home to enjoy them since I work out of town 9-10 months out of the year. The new user interface is much better than the old but I still need to get used to it. Anyways...on to the issue. the ALARM. In the Master Bedroom I have the alarm set to wake up and a certain time every day of the week to the Sonos chime. The Sonos Chime is nice and I like the way it gradually gets louder. However my big complaint is that: 1) You can't turn it off from you iPad, iPhone, etc? At least no where I've seen. 2) Where is the Snooze button? Nothing pops up on the screen of your iPhone/iPad to let you know to snooze or turn it off. I don't understand why this isn't part of the ALARM feature. 3) You have to get up to turn it off at the Play 5 by hitting the MUTE button, which does turn it off but if you hit the MUTE button again...music starts to play. At this time it appears to
Alarm clock / snooze / volume control within the Sonos App
I have a Playbar and Sub and am very happy with them. I thought of buying a Play 1 to have on my bedside table to effectively replace my clock radio. However, there is no clock or workable alarm, snooze or volume control post alarm with the current Sonos set up. My idea is to include within the Sonos App the ability to have a digital clock displayed when chosen that can stay open when the iPhone is on a dock so this can be displayed overnight. There are various alarm clock Apps on the market that offer this. When the alarm goes off there could be a snooze and volume control on the screen of the open Sonos App that could be easily accessed by the user. This would then allow the user to have a fully functional alarm clock solution using the Sonos App and speaker/s. Thoughts??
Getting DD sound
Dear all, here is my conundrum: My configuration: Playbar ---via optical cable--- TV ---via HDMI--- PC + 4 Play 1 speakers (2 in surrond mode with Playbar). When I play a movie or a game stored on a PC it would seem I don't get DD sound: I play a movie which has DD and in Sonos app>About I don't have "Audio In". I have Play 1: Living Room (LS) and the same one but (RS) and on both I have "WM: 2". I don't have the Playbar at all. What I know for sure is that the TV (Sony Android) does transfer DD to playbar; meaning, there is an issue between the PC and the TV. Could you please help?
convert a SpeakerCraft system to Sonos?
Hello. I currently have a "traditional" speaker craft system with 5 different speakercraft zones in my home. My speakercraft amp is an MZC-66. I've used Sonos at a number of other houses and am really impressed with the quality and ease of use. I talked with a few people who seemed to indicate that I could pretty easily convert to Sonos by buying a Sonos amp and attaching it to my MZC-66? And then could easily add Sonos speakers and systems to other rooms as they join the wifi network? True?
Unable to remove / reset Beta
I have been a member of the Beta program, but as I cannot add a music service (Amazon music) I have un-enrolled from the Beta Program. However, I am unable to delete the controller from my iPhone. I have deleted the app and then downloaded from the App store. But, when I open the App, it is still showing I am on the beta release. Any ideas?
New SONOS Brigde with integrated Apple AirPlay support
So far it is only possible to use SONOS and Apple Airplay when connecting a SONOS Connect or Play:5 with an additional Apple device supporting AirPlay (e.g. Airport Express). Therefore, the idea is to develop a SONOS Bridge which has integrated support for Apple AirPlay without additional hardware. Benefits would be in this case that - no additional hardware and cabeling is necessary to use AirPlay in the SONOS system - one could easily allow guests to quickly output their audio to the SONOS system - all iOS devices would be supported as a sources without further software - with an appropriate AirPlay software on PC / Mac one could even send audio from there into the Sonos audio system The Sonos controller could then represent this "AirPlay input" as a new audio source within the complete SONOS system.
Need help picking a few things.
I have a few decisions to make, I was thinking of getting a sonos playbar and sub but with issues to Samsung JU series I will stick with my Samsung soundbar setup, unless people can convince me otherwise. I have 5 play 1's I live in a townhome and h have 5 alexa devices. I am able to get a Playbar $384 sub $384 play 3 $164.45 play 5 $219.45 I play 5 would be huge in my area, a play 3 I can totally handle, and I'm just worried about the playbar and sub combo. Any thoughts?
2 play 5's or 2 play 1's and a play 5
So I'm finally deciding to pick up my first sonos setup! We have quiet a large living room so I would appreciate the sound of a stereo pair. I can't decide between these 2 setups. Will 2 play 5's sound better? The thing is 2 play 1's and a play 5 allow me more to distribute the speakers around the house... can't decide. Maybe I just pick up the 2 play 1's and a play 5 and start saving up for another play 5 . :)
