1x Sonos Beam + 4x Ikea Symfonisk???
I currently have the Beam + 2 Ikea Symfonisk bookshelves speakers. The Beam placed in front and the two Symfonisk in the back. However, I’m interested in more sound in the front as not everything I watch onTV is with proper surround sound and then the Beam is a little «weak» sounding all alone. So I was thinking adding two Symfonisk in front as they are cheap and produce good enough sound for this use. Would this work? Beam + 2x Symfonisk taking care of the sounds in front and supporting the Beam in stereo broadcasts and 2x Symfonisk in the back as the rear surround speakers? Thanx in advance for any reply and help!
How to get more even sound in larger room
Hi thereLooking for some advice. I have a 9m by 4m kitchen dining room as shown. At the north end it’s all glass (so I can’t put a sideboard or shelf there) dining area. At the south end is the kitchen area with sink, hob, cooker etc. Right now, I have one Sonos Five, positioned on a sideboard as shown in the picture. The “problem” I have is I have to crank fairly loud to get the most out of it in the kitchen area - but that can be too loud for anyone sitting at the dining table.I am considering buying a second Five to put at the south-east corner of the kitchen to fill the room with sound more evenly. But when I look at pairing two Fives, the documentation seems to want them to be a left and right channel about 8ft apart. I also wonder if adding a Sub would be more “room filling”.Curious how folks would get more even sound distribution in the room … sadly putting speakers in the ceiling is not an option!It’ll only be used for music - no TV in this room.Thanks!
ROAM: disappears in app when on, reappears when off
I found another user who had a similar problem to mine, but the topic was closed a year ago without a satisfactory solution! So I am resubmitting it with a few slight changes in the details.----------Hi, I’ve been using Sonos since 2009 with few issues but I’m having a problem with my Roam that is frustrating, unpredictable and seems to have no solution other than to wait for it to sort itself out.The Roam is visible as “offline” when it is switched off but is not visible in the S2 app when switched on. It’s clearly still connected to the network in some way as the app shows when it’s switched off (visible in the app) and it disappears when it’s switched on. It can also replay the last music that was played on it by pressing the play/pause button, and given that the current album is stored on the network it clearly still has access to the network. I have tried changing the channel, resetting the router etc. but the problem persists. I have tried on multiple devices and the same problem
Sonos Beam Gen 2 + 4k UHD + HDMI Arc
Hello all, First post here so apologies if anything is off, let me know if so. Anyway, I’m looking at upgrading my current Beam Gen 1 to a Gen 2 to get Atmos. Most of the content I watch is from 4k UHD disks using the PS5 as a player. Now, my TV only has a HDMI Arc connection and not the e-ARC. I was originally led to believe I couldn’t therefore get Atmos but have now read I’ll simply get Dolby Digital Plus (which my TV can passthrough) rather than True HD.However, I have since been told that because 4k UHD disks use a True HD track then it won’t be possible to get Atmos from the Beam Gen 2 without getting a HD Fury Arcana to fix the no e-ARC issue. My assumption had been teh Trud HD track on the disc would simply revert to a Dolby Digital Plus track but I’m now being told that isn’t the case.Can anyone confirm this for me, or tell me the opposite? Basically, has anyone got experience playing 4k UHD disks with the Beam Gen 2 and a HDMI Arc connection and let me know what happened? I d
3rd Party Integrationis
Why is there such LIMITED control abilities with 3rd party systems. In ELAN and I hear others, there are many limitations. It is only a very basic controls that are allowed and I hear that it is SONOS that limits this from Multiple providers. the biggest. can not browse through services to find stations, only can select from favorites can not use thumb up/down in pandora can not see the duration of songs. can not create events to turn off zones or play certain station if not already picked in favorites. can not turn a zone to a specific volume. Would be nice to manage that when a zone turns on it is at the desired level can not create events to group zones together or apart And more…. Please sharewe need to voice up and share with sonos that we need better 3rd party support.
Can I increase text size on Mac desktop controller
I am using a 27” iMac. It’s a nearly 10 year old screen, but it has plenty of pixels. So it seems unreasonable that some of the text on the desktop controller is too small / indistinct to read, and can’t be enlarged.As I get older, use glasses etc, I can still read the song titles, but I find the artist names underneath are completely illegible. It doesn’t help that they are presented as grey on black. This is particularly annoying when listening to playlists.Could we get an option to increase text size? At the moment if I want to see who is playing I have to right click on Info and Options (where the text is still pretty small, but not tiny, and it’s a lighter colour text so clearer.I’ve been using Sonos since it first came out. Not everyone can be young and with 20/20 vision!Thanks for listeningNigel Thomas

BLUETOOTH ISSUE: AGAIN
BLUETOOTH ISSUE NOW 2 YEARS OLD AND RESOLVED IS BACKI’m trying to do a rest on a couple of Play 1’s, and the Sonos 2 app on my iPhone is prompting me to turn on Bluetooth access in the settings for the app itself. When you open the settings and go to Sonos 2, there is no on/off switch for Bluetooth whatsoever, just permission to access local network. Weird right? Not exactly the same as the old post I screenshotted but darn close. What do I do? Thanks
Is there a 'master' favorites list available on the app?
Is there a way to set up a master favorites list in the Sonos app? Or if this already exists, can you tell me how to access it or which feature it is?Right now, my favorites come from multiple sources … youtube mixes … sirius radio stations … and playlists from Apple Music. I often see these listed together in ‘recently played’, but they can drop off there if I play other things and don’t come back for a while.What I’d like to do is be able to pin certain items to a master list that only changes if I change it. Any help appreciated and cheers!

Connecting external CD jukebox(es) to ENTIRE SONOS system
I want to connect a CD jukebox to play throughout my home. I currently have (second-get) Sonos amp, two pairs of “Fives,” a Beam connected to two Fives, a Beam connected to two Play-Ones, two freestanding Play Ones, and another Sound Bar. A sonos Amp, which serves as the internet input for the whole system, plays out to two Klipsch speakers. Can i connect a CD jukebox to the amp and then play through the entire house?Many thanks.
Playing Vinyl via Sonos
Hi,I’ve read a number of posts here and pages on the Sonos site but I would love help confirming I’m understanding all of this. I currently have two Play 1 speakers. If I buy a turntable with a phono preamp built in, and a Sonos Port, I should be able to use those to play vinyl through my current Play 1 speakers, correct? Do I need any other hardware, besides cabling, to make that work?

I am looking for a real audiophile’s recommendation on how to best wire the setup for a backyard that is a wide open .75 acres with upsloping embankments on both sides and rear (looks like a bowl).

Here’s what I have: 3 sonos amps3 sonance passive subs6 sonance garden series speakers5 Sonance passive outdoor speakers2 Sonos play 5’s that can be protected from elements.
Need help with Sonos home theatre and AMP
Hi there,I used to have 5.1.2 setup with Sonos arc and two play 1’s, but since I moved recently, the play 1’s aren’t really an option anymore. So I was wondering a few things.1. Is it possible to use Sonos Arc + Sub alongside a Sonos Amp + two in-ceiling speakers, and use the in-ceiling speakers as left/right behind the couch in my home theatre setup?2. Is it possible to have the same amp connected to another pair of in-ceiling or wall speakers for instance in the living room, and while running a movie on the home theatre sound setup, to be playing music on these? Or would I need another amp for that?I hope you can clarify for me :-)All the best.// Mikkel
Sonos Arc the music on YouTube is heard better than if I listen to it on Spotify
A music video, whether on YouTube or another video medium, sounds better with energy and punch than if I listen to it on Spotify.does sonos apply different equalization for video and another one for music streaming?I enjoy more when I listen to the songs from a video because they are heard with more energy and more punch and it is unfortunate how the music is heard from the bar if I use music that I have on my cell phone or from Spotify, my Sonos Five sounds better the music from Spotify that my Sono arc.Can Sonos improve this on the Sonos arc?
HD Radio Station - Christian
Looking at all your Sonos Radio stations and you have a category of Christian, but unlike every other music service out there you don’t play popular Christian or Worship Music. You have a channel called Grace with a sub-name of Crossover Praise which is just pop music that might have a positive message. I wish you would add a modern praise station that is consistently pure Christian music. Examples are SiriusXM the Message or Pandoras Today’s Christian Hits Radio or Spotify Best of Live Worship. Its almost insulting to think someone thinks the music played is what poeple are looking for under Christian Music.
Sonos Needs A Bluetooth App!!!
I have the Sonos move and I also compared it to the Bose portable smart speaker. The Bose app allows you to control the audio EQ while using the app and easily switch between wifi or bluetooth and turn off the speaker using the remote. Another frustration with the Sonos app is that I can’t even see what percentage of battery is left when I’m on bluetooth. I know this is a wifi first speaker but since they added bluetooth, they should update the app functionality. Does anyone know how to see the percentage of battery life on a Sonos Move when using bluetooth mode? Are there any 3rd party apps that provide the ability to control the power, switch between wifi and bluetooth, control EQ and show battery usage on while on bluetooth? Thanks
Anyone pickup the new Symfonisk Bookshelf Gen 2 + Wireless Charging Shelf?
I know the shelf is technically not a Sonos product, but there is no one to contact at Ikea. Basically, the Wireless charging on the shelf is horrible! Takes me like 2-3 minutes to find the right spot to charge the phone even though they put a big plus on it where the device is supposed to go.
