I have a factory that I run a small crossfit style gym out of. I'm looking to upgrade my audio and like the look of the wireless speakers for the multi rooms, however I'm concious of the size of the main part of the gym. Would multiple of the bigger speakers suffice or do I need a commercial variety? Main gym area is around 200sqm and has a high roof.
I have a Sonos Play 1, and I only have a mobile internet connection. When I purchased, I also bought a WiFi Router so I could set up the Sonos and play music, but this WiFi network is not connected to the internet as I only have through my phone. I researched but couldn't find a way to stream music from my Apple Music and TuneIn accounts to my Sonos at home. My question is, how can I stream music and radio from my phone to my Sonos with only a internet connection from my phone? Hope this makes sense. Thanks everyone
Hi, At home, I have a few different networks with associated WiFi SSIDs (e.g. trusted, guest, IoT). I would like the Sonos device to be on my 'IoT' network but I want to be able to control it from devices on my 'trusted' and maybe 'guest' network, which, of course, use a different SSIDs ``. Unfortunately, when I try to control the Sonos from a device connected to a different SSID the Sonos App gives me a message effectively saying 'sorry, different WiFi name, can't do it'. Now, I don't think there is a technical reason for this block, because if (for testing purposes) I placed the App in one network and the Sonos in another then allow the correct ports between them but make sure their connected to the same SSID - it works (I did this test by connecting to my home VPN, which puts the App device in a different network). Anyway, short story, can I just tell the App or Sonos to ignore the fact that the SSID doesn't match because I know it will work anyway? Tried to exp
I've not been able to get my surround speakers to work since I bonded them to my Playbar (they are connected to a Connect:Amp). They worked fine as a separate pair prior to being bonded. I've set them to 'full' rather than 'ambient' and confirmed that the audio stream is DD5.1 but no luck. I'd like to un-bond and re-bond them but I can't find the option to do this on the PC or iOS Sonos controllers. I've read there should be a "Remove Surround Speakers" option in the "Room Settings" section but it's not there! Did this functionality change in a recent upgrade?
Honestly, I have the darnedest time finding a good pros and cons of using Play 1 or Play 3 as the rear in a 5.1 Surround Setup. I have currently have a 3.1 Setup (for you noobs that's the playbar + sub), a "spare" Play 5, it's usually in the garage but I will set it up outside in the backyard when we have parties, and the boost. Obviously in the inside, it is the Sub and Play Bar. The Speakers will either be wall mounted or on stands. If placed on stands will be about 1 feet (to a max of 2 feet) behind the main/centered sofa. If I wall mount, I have a few more creative options, such as placing them up a higher (I have ten feet "vaulted" ceilings) and more in the corners of the room, so everyone in the room gets a more surround experience. However, I know that opens up another can of of worms, but from what I read I am confident the true play will balance it all out. If I wall mounted, my hypothesis is to get the Play 3's but then my brain says that's just my ego compensating. So I am c
Ciao, I'm using my Play 1 in living room, bathroom and bed room, moving the speaker from a room to another. Unfortunately it seems that I must re-calibrate trueplay every time I move the speaker to one of those three rooms... Is it possible to create an update able to store the settings for each room, avoiding the re-calibration procedure all the times? Thanks
Hello, I've moved into a house with some odd wiring for ceiling speakers and am looking to add a volume control to 1 set. Currently there are 2 4-wire lines coming into the media closet. 1 4-wire is powering speakers in 5 rooms, I'm assuming these are daisy chained or something. Each room of these speakers has an independent volume knob. The other 4-wire line is powering 2 speakers in an individual room with no volume knob. (I guess somehow the previous people used those speakers as part of their video system?? no idea) Anywho, I can connect the 2 4-wire lines just like this image https://www.sonos.com/graphics/rn/FAQ269/connect_amp-4_speakers.png and sound comes out of all speakers. Since there is no volume control in the single room, it is always the loudest. Even if I turn up the volume to the max in all other rooms, that one room is still noticably louder than the rest of the house. I went to my local bigbox and bought a volume knob control. It has L/R +/- inputs
Hi, I just purchased the Sony Bravia XBR-65X850D and hooked it up to my exisiting 5.1 Sonos Surround sound that I was using with my previous TV. I have two play 3s I'm using as the the rears, the playbar for my fronts and center, and the sonos sub. But I'm getting sound drop outs. It doesn't matter if I'm watching live, on demand, or a recorded show on my DVR- the sound will just cutout for a second or two and keep doing that intermittently throughout the show. It may happen five or six times during the duration of an hour long show. It's not too too bad but it does get kind of annoying. And it didn't do this on my last TV. Anyway to fix this? Thanks, G
I have a soundbar and love it. When listening to a dts track it cone though as stereo, still sounds good. I was wondering, it dts a hardware of software upgrade. If t Sonos were ever to release a soundbar 2 which had the ability to decode dts, and knowing how good sonos are with backgrading their support for software, it is possible for this to be added to the playbar by way of software upgrade or is it a hardware thing making that impossible?
Hi, I have some power amps here that don't have any volume control as such they were originally designed to be used with a dedicated pre-amp/DAC for volume control. Now I believe the Connect has volume control? I know the pre-out (RCA) voltage I require to achieve full volume from my amplifier. But I can't find what the expected output voltage is from the Connect at full volume when it is for example streaming from Spotify? I need to know that it is going to be capable of achieving a decent volume otherwise I will need to purchase an additional pre-out booster which introduces its own problems. Cheers, Luke
Hi, Just picked up a Playbar from Amazon which is arriving today - been doing some reading around on the whole DD5.1 vs DTS support argument. I'm not precious over exactly what format my audio is in, but eventually I'll be adding 5.1 support by adding a sub and some rear speakers so I'm looking for the easiest/best way of achieving true 5.1 surround from my living room setup. I have a Panasonic AS650B TV, hooked up to an Amazon Fire TV (new one supporting 5.1), and an LG BP556 blu-ray player. The playbar is replacing a Philips Fidelio B5 which I've had a lot of issues with, but it did take all the inputs and handle all the audio decoding etc seamlessly so I didn't need to worry about it at all. So my main question is, how do I ensure that I get 5.1 surround whenever possible using my current setup? The manual for my TV states that there are 2 options for audio output via SPDIF - Auto and PCM. Auto states that DD, DD Plus, HE-AAC multi-channel are all output as DD bitstream, a
Hi all I've only had my Sonos system for a week or so, but I'm already noticing the very occasional tendency to lose groupings whilst music is playing. The music will continue playing in one zone usually, with the other stopping completely. Is there any known issue? I assume this is not impacted by other network issues as the network is between the players themselves, correct? Everything is otherwise working perfectly, is no reason to suspect a faulty component as yet. Thanks!
Hello I'm very interested in having a Sonos setup in my home. I have one big concern which is using the Sonos App When friends and family come around they will need to install the app to play music? Unless i have got the wrong end of the stick and we can stream directly from the Apple Music App? Thanks Mark
So I currently have a play bar and 2 play 1's connected to the TV in the dining seating area, I have a play 1 in every bedroom and z play 5 in the loft room. I currently have nothing in the lounge connected to the TV, can I relocate the play 5 to use with the TV and buy 2 more play 1's or should I go all out and buy another play bar and 2 x play 3's??
Hi, I'm planning to purchase a CONNECT:AMP to power some outside speakers, and I noticed it has audio INPUT. If I connect a device to this such as a CD player or turn table, can I then stream this input throughout the whole Sonos system (I have 3 different rooms connected) or only to the speakers connected to the amp? Thanks in advance! JD
I recently bought a Samsung UN55KU6300 as well as a Playbar. The tv doesn't have an infrared receiver, and so the Playbar is not identifying the tv's remote. Because of this I cannot use my tv remote to control the volume on my Playbar. Has anyone experienced this and is there a work around?
