Guys, it is time: TIME for you to get with it and offer some Sonos Widgets for your iOS and MacOS apps. Also, I should be able to control my Sonos system with my Apple Watch. The iOS and Mac apps are getting pretty long in the tooth and both need some love. Widgets would go a long way in both scenarios.If you need some help, I suggest you just go ahead and offer a cartoon bag of money to these projects and bring them in-house:Menu Bar Controller for Sonos:https://apps.apple.com/us/app/menu-bar-controller-for-sonos/id1357379892?mt=12Lyd:https://apps.apple.com/us/app/id1451243766Good luck!
Currently I have an 8+ year-old TV that has performed well but it is heading toward an honorable retirement. It is mounted in a corner of the viewing room on an articulated wall mount as will its larger, more technically adept replacement (LG QNED85AQA) with such new feats as Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision and I’m hoping enough simplicity to learn how to use it. I will also attach an Apple TV (latest available currently) since I love the interface. I also requirement a second box from Dish TV to give me local channels and traditional viewing. (This is non-negotiable for other household members.) For audio the current setup is a Sonos Playbar mated to a early Sonos Subwoofer and a pair of Play:1s for rear channel. I imagine I’ll hook the Playbar up via optical to start while fiddling with the TV and sorting the video. This is also where I listen to music so I can maintain a happy status quo in that capacity. Once that’s sorted no doubt I will want the Atmos effect. Literally, a 2-minute stor
Wonder if anyone can help out here.I am sending a signal from the Google Home speaker to a group of Sonos speakers via a Chromecast Audio going into the line-in of the Sonos Play:5 speaker. Since some time now the line-in signal would mysteriously disappearBoth Chromecast and Sonos claim the signal is going through but no audio is heard on the Sonos Play:5 speaker. If I reboot the Play:5, the signal returns back, but then it will disappear again after a week or two.I don't quite know what to do here and how to troubleshoot thisThoughts? .
For a year or so, I’ve had no problems asking Alexa to play ‘My Soundtrack’ or anything else. I could look at my phone and using the Android App skip etc, now I can only pause, and I can’t see the track. If I start the music from the Sonos App - all works as expected - but - that kind of removes the point of using Alexa in the first place. I’ve tried removing/readding the skill, doing all the usual unplugging etc Anything else I can/should try?
Does anyone know any website apart from eBay and other marketplaces to buy old discontinued Sonos Play-1. I already have a Play-1 and recently bought a Beam 2. I would like to pair the existing Play-1 with the Beam to setup surround speakers. Since the old Play-1 and One SL can’t be paired I’m looking to buy the old Play-1. Upgrading to two One SLs would be expensive for me. Any leads on this is much appreciated. Even if someone is willing to sell, happy to make an offer.
Have has Sonos for 10 years with almost zero issues until the last year, but clearly because I have original Sonos 5 speakers I guess Sonos is just trying to screw my investment in their company! Over the last year about every couple of months we end up not being to play anything over speakers…Sonos app can detect all the speakers, just will NOT connect! I guess the only way to keep customers these days is to disrupt original product and try and make you purchase another $10 in product…if this is how this company (that I told everyone I knew to buy if they were in the market) and now just a sellout to corporate greed and shareholder vs good product and customer service…if only companies would look again at good products and customer service vs short term $$, but I guess that’s what investors are looking for these days and not caring about the customer is where it’s at!
Hi all Good people. During Black Week the Sub mini was down around $100 and i was able to get one.First i add it to my livingroom downstairs along with the Playbase&Ikea BS. I try different placement and try multiple Truplay-runs. Sound was like ok,but nothing more. I really enjoy this room even without the Sub mini. I think Playbase is a great soundbar. Anyway…. Then i moved the Sub mini upstairs and integrade it with the Beam Gen2& Era 100…and i got a Ikea BS stereopair as well. The Sub mini is placed in the front corner of the room. Let me say it like this: the Sub mini outplay Gen3 by far….i’m in LOVE. The tight punch,the dynamic…just WOW. Yes,i’m talking bout performance with Music,not TV/Film/Movies. Just pure enjoyable music. And the size….to be honest,i thought the Sub mini was a small unit….it’s not. It’s somehow bigger than i imagine.I have not watch any movies,only Youtube,and the sound is good(enough). I probobly gonna watch some films in the near future,but i think
I’m an Android user and I’m considering switching to Apple Music from Spotify but one of the biggest things stopping me is that within the Spotify app, I can bring up the devices list and play to any of the Sonos speakers in my house. Is there a way to do this with Apple Music or do I have to use the Sonos app?
So I've gone and bought some cheap bits to make Sonos reach my bathroom at last! I have a speaker in every room including full cinema system, (playbar sub and play 1 surrounds)The speaker is a monitor audio CT165-T2 60/65W I test wired it before I committed to mounting it in my ceiling and to be honest I was hoping for more bass, could this be because it's not in an enclosure/ ceiling and is not using the surrounding ceiling to reverberate the sound or have I wired it wrong or dreading maybe I've got a speaker that needs more power than the amp can put out.ive basically wired it with 2x twin speaker wire and made sure positive to positive and negative to negative on the left and right channels correctly but wondering if there's a trick I'm missing?
I have two Play:5 speakers and a Sub in my living room and I recently got a projector for that room. Right now, I’m using a Bluetooth receiver device connected to the 3.5mm TRS jack on the back of one of the Play:5s, but the Bluetooth connection is unreliable and due to the nature of Bluetooth, there is a slight audio delay. It would be great to be able to connect the projector directly to my Sonos system without Bluetooth. The projector has an HDMI-ARC port, and a few Sonos devices support ARC. A device that connects to an HDMI-ARC port and only acts as an “input” for a Sonos system would be very useful for my configuration. It’d be even more convenient if it had an option to be powered over PoE (but I won’t be holding my breath on that).
User Story: As a music listener, I want to the option to set group volume with a single tap when selecting a group, so I can quickly and easily configure the soundscape according to my preferences, before the music starts playing.This might be solved via “group profiles” — presets that save the individual volume levels for all speakers in a group. These profiles would enable the listener to save relative volume levels according to their preferences for each speaker in the group. For example, Roam speakers generally require higher level settings than other speakers to achieve the same overall decibel level. The perceived volume for a given speaker is also affected by room placement and other factors.In addition to the convenience of setting relative volumes that are appropriate for each speaker, the listener can also use group profiles to quickly set the overall volume level before the music starts. For example, a profile for background music might be rather quiet, while a profile for a
Hi,Appologies in advanced if this has been asked before.I have a old Panasonic 50” Plasma TH-50U30A which I am pretty certain does not do Dolby Passthrough from its Optical or HDMI ports.I have a spare Beam or Playbar (together with a Sub and two ones) which I can connect to this TV but in either case will only get Stereo PCM :-(Is anyone able to suggest a good splitter which I could use to connect:Apple TV → Splitter → Beam ARC Port (For Audio) and TV ARC or HDMI Port (For Audio) or Apple TV → Splitter → PlayBar Optical Port (For Audio) and TV ARC or HDMI Port (For Video) Preference would be for the latter (Playbar)
Hi :) ,this is my first post.I’m using Sonos products since 4 years now and i’m happy with them.Thank you for the great products. Regarding my feature request, it would be helpfull if in a multiple Sonos device setup, the app would automatically switch to the active Sonos when the app is started.The same would be helpfull for the Controller on Windows. Thank you very much. With kind regards,Jack
This is my setup:In my living room I have four wired speakers, have just purchased a new soundbar and sub, and am looking for a new receiver. In my kitchen and on my back patio, I have four wired speakers that are connected to a Sonos Connect. I stream Apple Music through the Connect and can play the same music inside and out at the same time. I want to wirelessly pair the new receiver I am about to purchase to the Connect so I can stream music in both areas at the same time. I’m considering a Denon receiver but haven’t made a decision yet. I’m just not 100% sure how to make this happen, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
