Hi allI’ve recently set up a new amp with existing in ceiling speakers and it works great. I’ve also connected the amp to a 2018 LG OLED via hdmi arc which pushes the sound out through the in ceiling speakers - also great.The issue I have it switching off the amp to return to playing the tv via a sky soundbox (also conducted to the tv via hdmi). This seems impossible to do, other than by physically unplugging the amp from the arc hdmi port on the tv. I only occasionally play the tv through the in ceiling speakers but it would be nice to find a slicker solution than the above workaround.I have seen similar posts without a solution from a couple of years ago so I thought perhaps someone might now have found a fix.cheers.
Hi All, I am new to Sonos having stripped an old wired multiroom system out of the house. I just purchased a bundle 1 x ARC, 2 x Sonos 5, 1 x Sub with the intention of using the Arc and Sub for the TV room (possibly adding 2 X Sonos 1 for 5.1) and using the 2 X 5’s is a large living room solely for music.I haven’t set anything up yet as the hose is being decorated but I am wondering after some further reading if the better option for the music in the living room would be 2 X 1’s + Sub rather than 2 X 5. Both the 5’s or 1’s would be on speaker stands about 10 ft apart. From an aesthetic view I think the 2 X 1’s would be better but I am a low level audiophile and soundstage/quality will be the more significant factor.I have spoken to the supplier and as all boxed I can switch out the 2 5’s for 2 1’s + Sub for a very small additional cost.All thoughts and opinions welcome, thanks!
So… since Sonos decided to cease support for the play 5, Connect etc. My Sonos system with legacy products is now so very unreliable. Utter Rubbish.I used to be so very positive about Sonos and their products. I now really have NOTHING positive to say.It has got to the point now where I regret buying this expensive rubbish.Dont get me wrong, when it works it sounds great but that’s if you can control it!
Hi all , I currently have a Yamaha sound bar that's rated at 120watt power output , ideal listening volume is near 80 on the volume slider , my living room is about 13ft X 12ft and I sit about 10ft away from the TV , I'm worried that if I get the gen 2 beam that it won't be as loud because Sonos don't specify the power output , does it go fairly loud ??? Considering the size ??
I just thought that I would share my experience, I am currently listening to The Marias, Cinima on Vinyl through Sonos Five paired with x2 play:1 stereo connected to a Fluance RT84. I am in Audiophile heaven. I haven't experienced nothing like this before and would like to say a simple “thank you” to Sonos for making this possible. I am experiencing new heights of listening. Thank you. Simon
I’ve seen some posts here about cathedral or vaulted ceilings, but was curious if any of the experts here had any thoughts about my situation.I have a Playbar, and added a Sub and Ones to make a surround system. I’ve been pretty happy with it, but was curious about upgrading to the Arc, especially with a 15% upgrade discount.The tricky part is that the system is in an open-plan space with a curved ceiling that tops out at about 12 ½ ft. (see the attached image). Would I expect to get no Atmos effect because of the atypical ceiling shape/height?If the Atmos features won’t really work with my setup, is there a significant reason to upgrade from Playbar to Arc?
Hello Community, Sonos,I was wondering if other people would find it usefull that you would recognize a full album vs a single in the Artist overview.example; you see 10 items below the “artist radio and Top Tracks. it would be handy if you could navigate to the full albums by recognizing them or if they were grouped? Thanks,first time question-askerToni
Hello Everyone,We will be installing in a Museum gallery several SONOS 5 speakers. They will be above guests heads on one of the walls of the gallery and will require a secondary safety mechanism in case the mount fails.Usually, we would attach a safety cable between the speaker and the mounting surface, but I have not found a mounting point on the speaker to do this. Short of drilling a hole in the cabinet (which would void the warranty) or using some sort of super adhesive mount that could hold the weight of the speaker (might also void the warranty), I am kind of short on ideas.If anyone has experience with this, I would appreciate any and all suggestions.Thank you.
I have an Amazon Fire TV Cube with a HDMI connection to a projector. I would like to connect my Playbar (which has an Optical Audio) but the Amazon Fire TV Cube does not have an Optical Audio connection. So from the Fire TV I would like send the video to the projector and the audio to the Playbar. Is that possible?Thanks in advance.
Hello Sonos Community!I have a Beam GEN2 and cannot capitalize on the ATMOS capabilities since my TV only has ARC (and even that does not work properly - will not pass through). I am resigned to upgrade the TV and while OLED would be nice, my SONOS upgrades do not leave much extra for making a splash. Hence, I am considering the Hisense U78 LED panel as a value-for-money option and am reaching out to the community for real world compatibility with SONOS Beam. I would love a clean solution and utilize eARC!Thanking everyone in advance.
I have used the Amp connected to a TV via HDMI to act as the front of a surround system, left, right and phantom center channel, sub out and support Sonos speakers as rear surrounds.With the Amp set up in this configuration, running a powered sub from the sub out port, is that sub receiving the actual decoded subwoofer channel from Dolby, basically the .1 of 5.1 or does the Amp just use its crossover to feed low frequency from the left and right channels to the sub out port as it would in a stereo set up?Likewise, is the phantom center channel derived/created from the decoded center channel of Dolby 5.1 or is it purely simulated from the left and right channels?
I am currently building and have a ok-sized family room/kitchen space. The living room space is approximately 22’ wide x 18’ deep. If I add the kitchen it is 22’ wide x 36’ deep. I am trying to plan for the space. I imagine pairing my ARC and Sonos Sub with a Sonos AMP that connects to in ceiling Sonance speakers. My question is do I add 2 pairs (QTY 4) Sonance in ceiling speakers or 1 pair (QTY 2) for my living room space? I considered doing 3 pairs (QTY 6) total Sonance in ceiling speakers with the one AMP in the entire kitchen/family room space, but figured I would like to treat more as two zones (one family room 2 pairs, and one kitchen 1 pair), but I know multiple zones on one amp is not possible. Which of the following would make more sense: For the family room (22’ wide x 18’ deep); Sonos ARC, Sonos Sub, Sonos AMP, Sonance In-ceiling 1 pair (QTY 2) --- For the kitchen; Sonos AMP, Sonance In-ceiling 1 pair (QTY 2)orFor the family room (22’ wide x 18’ deep); Sonos ARC, Sonos Sub,
While on a Samsung Galaxy S9 with Android 10 I was able to at least resize the Sonos widget to 4x1 this no longer works on a Pixel 6 with Android 12. So I am left with a widget that takes almost half the screen for no reason. Please provide additional widget sizes or at least allow resizing.
Hello, I am wondering if I can use Sonos one sl in a 30x15x6 m2 warehouse, the construction is made from metal insulated sandwitch panels. Here we are going to open a motorcycle clothing store and I am looking for a solution for backround music. We need to be able to speak to the customers which are going to visit us but at the same time i would like to hear a nice sound :)What do you think can i get a decent result out of 6-8 Sonos one sl? Do I need also a Sonos Sub? I made a test today with a JBL Xtreme 2 which I borrowed from a friend (I hang it at 3 m height near one of the walls) but I was not impressed maybe because the space is so big and all the walls are metallic. Thank you in advance for your help. Ionut
I am able to sync the Fios remote to control the volume though the Sonos Beam when I am watching Fios cable TV. When I switch over to an app (Netflix, Hulu, HBO Max) the Fios remote doesn’t work to control the volume. The Sony/TV a remote doesn’t work for the volume either. How do I get one remote to control everything?
