My Sonos system sometimes plays all the songs on an individual playlist without a hitch but there are times when it starts a song and never finishes it before going onto the next then the next song will play through fine and the it starts short cutting songs again. It's very annoying ! What is up with that?
Can I play 2 different Spotify Playlists simultaneously on a Sonos System?
Hi - Just got my first Play 1 and Bridge last week and am blown away by how good Sonos is. I will undoubtedly be adding to my system soon but wondered in advance whether I would be able to play 2 (or more) different Spotify playlists/tracks on different speakers? I am a Spotify Premium subscriber (if that makes a difference?). Thanks.
Why is the maximum volume so low?
I just purchased a single Play:5. I have to turn it about 3/4 of the way up to hear it much at all, and at max volume, it is not nearly what one would expect from a speaker of this quality. I have the volume setting all the way up, plus the bass and treble at max. Nothing seems to help. Is there another setting I'm missing? Thank you.
Allow to group the volume control to the hardware buttons on the Sonos unit!
I have a Play1 on my counter in the master bath and now added and complimented with in ceiling speakers and grouped with a Connect Amp located in the closet. I want to group the volume control on the (easy to reach) Play1 instead of pulling out a smartphone.
Update appearance/skin of Sonos PC program
Hi It would be a great idea to create some new, more modern, skins for the sonos controller for Windows. Perhaps make it user-skinnable. There's alot of great 'artists' out there who can create some great skins. The standard skin is just not that great.. buttons too small, the dark colour is just depressing and makes it feel so heavy.. The interface is actually one of the things that is interfering with my sonos experience. It may sound a bit smallish but the interface is the gateway into the sonos experience and if that is a turnoff then the whole experience will suffer.
Pandora keeps cutting off songs
When I am listening to Pandora or Songza the song will cut off randomly in the middle and jump to the next track. This has happened with my iTunes library as well, but far less frequently. Biggest problem is Pandora. Diagnostic confirmaton # is 3437289. Thanks for your help.
Music library > albums > ALBUM NAME combines albums with the same name.
When selecting an album to play from the list of albums, tracks with the same album name are combined even though they are different artists. For example "Dreams" by Whitest Boy Alive are combined with "Dreams" from The Allman Brothers. I have the latest sonos controller (4.2) for mac.
Alarm Group - Controlling Varying Volumes
When I start up a Zone with an alarm, my Play:1 is at a volume that is way beyond comfortable. Since it is linked in a Zone, it seems there is only one master volume for the alarm in this linked group. I know I can change the level after it turns on, but by then the music is already slamming hard on this Play:1 speaker. I am worried that damage will happen to it in the long run. How can I set the alarm volume lower for this particular Play:1 speaker? For this setup. I do NOT have the option to un-link it and the volume level for the other SONOS devices in this group need to stay where they are. Is there a way I could set a MAX volume setting on a particular speaker?
Playbar and Harmony One
Hello all- Having an annoying issue. I have the Playbar connected to my media center, and use a Harmony One. I followed the instructions to get the Playbar loaded as an amplifier into the Harmony One, and I'm able to control the volume when watching something on my media center. Problem is when I switch away from the media center. When watching regular TV and I change the volume, the Playbar will adjust it's volume (even though it's not in use). So when we switch back to the media center, the volume is always too low or too high. Is there a Harmony setting I'm missing to have the Playbar NOT receive IR signals when not in use?
I am trying to minimize the amount of electronic equipment that is consuming power 24/7 and our three Sonos speakers (1-5, 2-3s) are candidates. The only problem is that when I use my home automation system to turn off the outlets that the speakers are plugged into, in the morning I have to regroup them and that process is not without its weaknesses and is inconvenient. I would like to have the option of keeping the speakers regrouped automatically when they are repowered.
Fade in option for Sonos alarm
Could you add a 'fade in' option with an adjustable time limit to the Sonos alarm, so that over the specified time period, the sonos component would gradually increase its volume to that set as the alarm. This would allow a 'gentler' wake up. Could also have an option of either beginning to play music at the time you specify, or to have reached full volume by the specified time.
IR repeater capability when in wall mount mode
Could we please add the ability to adjust the IR repeater to on when in wall mount mode. Newer cable boxes are becoming smaller and smaller allowing mounting of the unit behind the TV. With the PLAYBAR mounted below having the ability to use the IR repeater at this time would be a huge advantage to a cleaner look for the end user.
What does the Connect do, exactly?
I understand that the Connect is intended to be used with an external amp. My question is, how? Is the idea to: a) Allow me to play content streaming through the Sonos network (iTunes, Rdio, Spotify) through my existing AVR; or b) Allow me to stream audio from my AVR-connected peripherals (AppleTV, turntable) wirelessly to Sonos speakers; or c) Both of the above? Since most of the terminals are outputs, I'm guessing the answer is (a)… but then what is the RCA input intended for?
Sonos Playbar 2 with HDMI and other additional features
I completely understand the problem to add DTS re-coding to the current Playbar due to the fact of introducing audio delay. And since the Sonos Playbar is only responsible for audio, this delay can't be added for video as well. Therefore, I would like Sonos to make a [b]Sonos Playbar 2[/b] or Sonos PlaybarHDMI which takes care about audio and video. DTS and other sound formats could be easily re-coded into a supported audio format and the audio/video sync could be kept. But it could also address other improvement possibilities: - Display "Volume" onscreen - Support IR remote controls (and others as well) to adjust night mode and speech enhancement - Multiple HDMI inputs / HDMI switch - Display currently played music (while not in TV mode) - Possibility to steer music with basic controls via IR (Play/Pause, Next track, Previous track, radio stations) - Possibility to add two front channels (Playbar + 4x Play:1 + Sub) - Possibility to increase width of Playbar to fit it to the
How do I connect Play:5s to the TV? And Will Quality be compromised?
Hello! I'm not really interested in buying a playbar because my primary objective is to play music in my living room via my mobile devices, etc. However, since my TV is also in my living room, I think it a bit of a waste to have a music system in place that doesn't integrate with my TV. So...originally, I was thinking of purchasing two Play:3s, since my buddy has this setup in his home. I really liked the sound quality of the Play:3s for the value! However, I notice that the Play-3s have no in-line input to connect to the TV. Can you tell me the different solutions for integrating the Play:3s or Play:5s to the TV - other than purchasing the playbar? If I were to purchase two Play:5s instead, how would I set them up to my TV? Would there be any sound delays from TV to the Play:5s in this scenario? FWIW, I have a Sharp Aquos TV. Thank you! D
I purchased a Sonos playbar-sub and play 1 system for my living room. Best Buy geek installed and placed the play bar on a solid wooden shelf above the tv. I mentioned that was against the instructions that I had read and he insisted it was ok. Is this correct or do I need to put on the same shelf as the tv? According to instructions he is wrong and I want to get the best possble sound from this great system.
Showing lyrics while in the sonos app on your smart phone of tablet. it would be a great idea, no?
How about showing the lyrics of a song while in the sonos app on your smart phone of tablet. My son likes a bunch of the music we have on our network and it would be great to use this awesome set up as a way to learn the song while listening to it... Matthew E
