After what must be close to 2 years I have finally solved drop outs on my Sonos system! I have quite a 'rambling' property and my system originally consisted of 3 bridges, a soundbar, a sub, 2 x play 1s and a play 5. I recently replaced one of the bridges with a boost in the hope that this would solve my drop out problems on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon music - my music library on my iMac was slightly more reliable but nowhere near even 70% reliability. Curiously my play bar and sub and play 1s worked perfectly with my tv and sky. However, my typical music listening experience would be Spotify or Apple or Amazon music services playing for a few seconds then cutting out, restarting, then stuttering and finally cutting out altogether. I had spoken to two or three Helpdesk folks over the past 1-2 years and never got the problem fully solved. And I'd tried many other fixes in the meantime. Most recently I was promised a call back - which never came - so I decided to try to fix the p
I'm looking at getting a playbar but already have a powered sub and a sonos connect and wondered if I could connect the powered sub to the connect and then set that up as the sub as part of the home cinema set up. Is that possible or can you only use the Sonos sub?
Hi all. I finally got a Sonos 3, it's sounding great. I'm wanting to connect it to my TV and wondering how it can be done. My setup is TV with various streaming services via my PS4. I purchased an Echo Dot recently and really like how it works with my Bluetooth speakers. I'm looking to have Sonos 3 in living room and want to work out how I can set it up with my TV. Is there a way I can take a line out my TV to a wireless router and add it to the Sonia Network? Can this be done with a Sonos Bridge? Or is there a way I can take a line out TV and wireless connect to Echo Dot and then back to my Sonos speaker? An easy and quick fix would be much appreciated. Cheers
I'm thinking of purchasing a sonos sound bar and was curious about the sound input options available. My dvd player gives me the option to play stero sound or 5.1 sound. Does the sound bar work better with one or the other. Does it make a difference in the sound played by choosing one or the other. Does the sound bar simulate surround sound or do you have to buy more speakers to achieve that surround sound feeling?
Hello, my wifi network won't show up during the set up and it is working fine otherwise and is the appropriate speed. We have hooked the sonos play 1 up using the ethernet cable provided, however we can't seem to get the network to show up through the app during set up. Any help would be great! It's our first sonos and we just got it so perhaps it's a silly mistake?
Hi I'm thinking of ugrading my tv and dvd player to a Samsung UE65K8000 TV and Samsung UBD-K8500. I already have a Sub, Play 1 x 2 and Sonos Playbar linked to my Sky Q box (can't connect old Pioneer TV direct) and Apple TV (gen 1) using an optical manual switch. My question is should I connect my Playbar directly to the new TV or still through the Sky Q box - are there any advantages/disadvantages either way. Also, I'm thinking I can get rid of the Apple TV as Netflix, etc is on the new Samsung TV. Can anyone advise if I am missing anything that this new setup would not give me. Thanks
Hi I'm proposing to buy a Player, sub & 2 Play 1 speakers and need to know whether the system would be compatible with my Samsung UE75KS8000. You list the 55KS800 TV as compatible but the 75" is not mentioned when you deal with the bigger sizes. Also, are there any issues with the Samsung 4K Blue Ray player? Thanks Nigel Cohen
I have a Samsung smart TV connected to a Samsung HW-K450 wirelessly, using Sound Connect - it cannot be wired as there's not enough space. I also have two SONOS PLAY:1, which atm I'm just using for music. What's my best option to keep TV and soundbar on their wireless connection, and add in the two SONOS PLAY:1? The soundbar doesn't have a line out. I thought of getting a sonos connect wired to the TV, but I'm not sure if I can output to two sources at the same time
Unbelievable that Sonos refuses to listen to their customers and bring out a white player. Why in the world would you buy a black one when all your other Sonos products you bought are white? I refuse to place an ugly black bar in my white interior. It's a white player or none. Don't they read the countless posts on this forum?
Hi there, wondering if anyone has tried their Australian-purchased Play 1 and Play 3 in the USA. Moving there in a month and wondering if it will still work okay? I have seen a couple of posts about going from UK to USA, but none about Australia to USA. I am presuming the voltage is universal and I will just need to get a socket adapter for the power source? Can I just buy new wires? It looks like they are pretty hard-wired into the speakers so not easily swapped out?
Hi everyone, Looking to replace my current Sony tv and would like to know if the SONY BRAVIA KD65XD8599BU will output DD5.1 through the optical port? The manual I've found online says "DIGITAL AUDIO OUT (OPTICAL) Digital optical jack (Two channel linear PCM, Dolby Digital, DTS)" but I'm not sure if this means it does or not?
We use Sonos in my cafe. Tonight, it seems someone who used to work there and has access to the system decided it would be awesome to mess around with us and change the music and turn the volume up. Is there a way to reset the system to clear all the passed employees off the access list?
Dear Sonos, I hope you read this: Just got a Sonos Play 5 for Christmas, I am pleased with how much sound comes out of the thing its brilliant, however, the app is a nightmare to use. I play a lot of dance tunes and have to adjust the Bass which seems like every other track. Please Please Please could you have the balance, treble and bass sitting above the volume control instead of having to go through the app as it is painful to keep finding and adjusting, it should be much easier to use. I also have other many issues with the App, could you make changing wireless networks more easier, its so confusing, I have two separate wireless networks at my home, i wanted to change it to the other network and it was a ball ache it needs to be simple. There are some other niggles i will post as I get more familiar with the product. Apart from the app the play 5 is an excellent speaker system.
Hello, does anyone know how to downgrade from controller v7.0? I am running osx 10.6 SL and the other day the controller app notified me of an update. After updating it would not connect to my music library. It also said there was another update. When trying to update again it responded by saying there are no updates! I have tried deleting the app and restoring from a time machine backup, however the first thing it then does is insist on upgrading to version 7.0 again. From looking on the Sonos website v7.0 is not compatible with osx 10.6. Anhy help would be appreciated. Thanks Dave
Hey fellow Sonos people, I recently got a new phone (Android 6.0). I installed Nova launcher on it, because I don't like the Huawei interface. Unfortunately I'm not able to get the Sonos widget working on the lockscreen. In the settings of the Sonos app, I've got the marks turned on to use the app from the lockscreen . Other apps, like spotify work fine on the lockscreen. Anyone got an idea? Grtzz. Jopio
I have the Playbar and 2xPlay:1 set up as surround sound, this works great for tv but when playing music I would like the Play:1s to revert to standalone or stereo, but it appears the only way to do this would be to ungroup them. It would be good to see a software driven update to this issue to make switching between modes simpler. Just wondering how many others would like to see this implemented. Thanks
I have a number of clients that have installed Sonos in their bars/restaurants. A lot of them wanted us to recess an iPad into a wall (using Sonance mounts) and use the Rhapsody service exactly like a jukebox. The only issue is that the customers would constantly override the existing song by selecting "Play Now". Would you consider adding a "jukebox" setting that would only allow the user to "Add to Queue"? The "Play Now" feature is also an issue at my house when there is a party. Most people do not have the patience to listen to a song picked by another individual. I would love to be able to lock down this behaviour.
I have sonos system Connect-AMP wired to four Yamaha ceiling speakers. I want to buy Theatre sound system to our TV. What I gathered that I need to buy sound bar to connect to the TV. I also understand that SONOS Playbar is the most comparable system so I can: 1- Listen to TV sound through playbar as well as our 4 ceiling speakers. 2- Play SONOS Music on both existing speakers and new sound bar. So my question: What are the alternatives to SONOS Playbar? I can see many cheaper but good quality sound bars , but what I don't know is their connectivity to SONOS System and whether they can replace sonos PLaybar. Anyone can give me an advice please? Trying to catch up on Christmas sale!
