Riga RP1 Sonos Connectivity
Hi everyone, I've got a few questions about connecting my Riga RP1 Turntable to my Sonos network. Ultimately, I want the best and most authentic sound quality from my turntable and want to know whether there is any difference in sound quality between the following: Option 1 (my current set-up) - Riga RP1 connected to a phono preamp then use the line out to my play:5 Option 2 - Riga RP1 connected to a Connect:Amp then out to a pair of speakers Option 3 - Riga RP1 connected to a Phono Amp then out to a pair of speakers (then perhaps incorporate a Connect so that I can access Sonos though this system) Presumably, playing vinyl through my current set-up is using a digitally converted signal which I guess a true vinyl aficionado would say is a no-go. Does the Connect:Amp also convert the analogue audio output to a digital output before pushing it out of the speakers? Does the Connect:Amp support a Phono input or will I still need to use my preamp? Are there any vinyl enthusiasts
Locking Sonos for a party
I know this is a frequently asked question, so I'd just like to know if Sonos actually listen to their customers? I work in the music industry and have personally experienced the battles that go on with the company Sonos system. Staff turn down music, insert their tracks into a playlist to disrupt an album playback and sometimes disconnect speakers from a party. It's total chaos and frustrating as we need to have the flexibility of having the Sonos on our current network, so can't segment the Sonos system via WiFi to restrict it that way. What we'd ideally like is to have some form of advanced management feature on the Sonos to switch between allowing individual accounts or everyone. I really can't see how difficult it would be to code this kind of restriction, either by MAC address or a "superuser" password on each connected controller if the setting is enabled. It's been years now and it doesn't appear that Sonos are doing anything about "Song wars" at a party. I've even
Turntable cutting in and out.
Just hooked up my turntable/preamp into sonos connect amp. It works fine when the setting are compressed and in and out when uncompressed. I would hate for my system to compress my files. Is there any way to get around this? I would like to get the best sound possible with these speakers. As usual Thanks!
I own playbar/sub - need play 1s? or play 3s?
Hi Im' looking for some opinions and guidance on what I should buy. I have the playbar/Sub / play 5 - I'm looking to get either the play1 or play 3 to complete the surround sound cinema setup. What do you guys think is best.? My living room is medium size. Do the play 3 allow for surround set setup (both 1 and 2nd gen)? Is there a 1/2nd gen on the play 1s? Is there a big difference in sound from the 1 and 3? I appreciate any feedback. Thanks.
Speakers won't reconnect to Sonos controller
When I updated the Sonos app it left a couple of my speakers disconnected and they won't reconnect. This is strange because, although our bedroom speaker doesn't appear in the list of available speakers in the Sonos controller, it still turns on each morning at 6am in line with our daily alarm. So the system must still be connected to this speaker. When I go through the procedure to connect the speaker again, I get to the point where you have to press the two buttons on the top of the speaker. At this point the Sonos app clearly instantly reacts to these buttons being pressed because it switches to the next screen. It then tries to connect the speaker but always fails to do so and invites me to try again. I have rebooted the wireless network too and also reset the Bridge. Any ideas?
Grouping Idea for SONOS
When one room is actively playing music and i walk into a room which is not, i would like to have a way to click a button on an inactive speaker in the room to group the inactive room with the active room with out opening a controller. Could be three clicks of the play/pause or if commands could differ for an inactive speaker, then double clicking play/pause when the speaker is not playing.
Dead spots on CR200
Hi there, Since upgrading to 3.1 my cr200 has become unresponsive in certain parts of the scree. For example if i try and adjust the treble in the music equalisation screen I cant move the slider. If I try and slide up and down using the A-Z slider at the RHS of my music index it stutters at E and jumps to M. I have contacted Sonos who suggested that I reset the controller but to know avail. Any ideas? Frazer
sonos set up
hi, i'm moving into a new house that used to have a sonos set up. The wiring was attached to two zp80's as such... 1 speaker in two separate bathrooms attached to one zp80 and 1 speaker in the kitchen attached to another, which was subsequently fed into an amp (I believe) The amp and two zp80's have been removed leaving three speakers and the wiring. I think I would like to have two zone's (bathrooms and kitchen) and was wandering what the best way to approach this is. I am new to sonos so unsure how to go about this. Thanks in advance rich

DD 5.1 to Playbar on its own
Is it advantageous to send 5.1 audio to the Playbar when it is on its own and not part of a 5.1 system? Does the Playbar process the 5.1 into a virtual surround sound, like it would with a stereo input, or does it output the 3.0 part of the 5.1 with a mix of the rest, or does it only output the 3.0 part of the 5.1?
Network dropout on SONOS Connect when using Line-In
Hi all I have a Connect that is connected to my HiFi. I also have a variety of 1s and 3s scattered around the house. If I use my Android controller to select radio or music from my library or phone, all speakers seem to play very well, uninterrupted, fairly indefinitely. However, if I try and use the Line-In on the Connect, the whole system drops out. All speakers stop except the Connect and I cannot connect to the Connect (jeez!) with the Sonos Controller on my phone. Eventually, the Connect also stops playing. I then usually need to wait a significant length of time (tens of minutes) before the Connect is accessible again (unless I power cycle it). Is this something that's been seen before? Does it sound like the Connect is faulty? It is about 2 meters away from the wireless router - could it still be network/signal strength issues? Thanks for any advice all, bit disappointing I can't use the Line-In on the Connect - it's one of the reasons I purchased it. BBz
Turn off updates and update notifications on a CR200
Hi, I already asked this question elsewere but think it's better dealt with in it's appropriately titled own thread. Because I am afraid that at some point in time an update more or less might brick my CR200 because Sonos decides not to support it anymore, I would like to switch off the search for updates and the update notifications, too. Advices I've got so far: -turn notifications off in the settings menu - but there is no such setting on a CR200. -use parental control of my router and block u*.sonos.com. But it seems like the implementation in my router is somewhat flawed - many websites take much longer to open when I use the blacklist with u*.sonos.com as the only entry. Or maybe this is related to the recent hack attacks on big companies they mentioned in the news today? Anyway, when I use this blacklist item, I'd expect the 'Check for updates' to fail. But it doesn' give any error message, it just tells me that my system is up to date. Could a Sonos rep chime
Using both a turntable and a CD player with Sonos Connect
I have an old HiFi system of which the only components still working are the turntable and the CD player. I have recently bought two Play1s and a Connect because I want to listen to my vinyl collection again – I bought a preamp too. I’d also like to listen to my large CD collection and I know I could connect the CD player directly to the Sonos Connect. I also know I could rip the CDs to a hard drive and ditch the CD player altogether, but I don’t really have the time to do that! So the question is – is there any way of keeping the turntable and the CD player both connected to the Sonos Connect at the same time and switching between the two rather than having to unplug one from the Connect and plugging in the other?
Cant add devices as says controller needs updating
This is Android version, Pixel XL phone, App version 6.4.7 I'm trying to add new devices to existing setup, but each time i select add new Player or Sub it takes me to a screen that says Sonos App needs updating - it then takes me play store which shows the sonos app page, but only says Open as i've already got the current version. Have tried uninstalling, and re-installing but same, have reset app, but same. Seems i'm currently unable to add any new devices - not happy !! :@
