Hi guys, I've got a PlayBar and a Play 1 at home. Currently, only the Playbar is connected to the TV, in the living room. I'm thinking of getting an additional Play 1, and create myself a kind of Home Cinema setup in my Living Room, with the Playbar and both Play 1s. However, this doesn't seem to be a scenario mentioned here: http://www.sonos.com/en-gb/products/wireless-home-cinema. Will it only work if I get an additional sub, or will this work? Thanks!
Hi there, As a nerd for tinkering with my Sonos setup, the 7.0 Trueplay release for the Playbar has been a joy. I have a playbar + SUB + two Play:1s. The playbar rests below the TV on a stand about 4ft away from the corner of my basement. The SUB is behind the TV stand in the corner. The surrounds face each other behind the seating, they rest about 15ft from the TV stand. The basement has carpet, basic couch and two arm chairs, with 8 foot cielings. However, I am wondering: what kind of a difference I should be noticing in the setup when watching movies or playing videogames, after Trueplay? To me, it sounds as if the left and right channels on the Playbar got their volumes increased, creating a more immersive sound stage. The SUB also seems to impact the glass cabinet less, which is about 20 feet away off to the side of my basement corner. These are just my basic observations! I would love to know about other people's before/after reviews of Trueplay on their 5.1 setups.
For some reason, when I try to open Sonos on my iPhone, I get a screen saying I'm not connected to WiFi. In the iPhone's settings, I show I'm connected to a 5.0 mHz network, which is what I have my iOS devices set to. The Play 3 plays and Speedtest, over WiFi, gives me a 40+ megabit downstream, 12+ up. To further muddy the water, my iPad Air sees and operates Sonos in the same location that the iPhone does not see it on my WiFi network. I had to use my iPad to set up TruePlay since my iPhone couldn't see Sonos. Any thoughts?
Is there a teleconference app for Sonos? There are microphones in some Play speakers but not in the Play:1 which instead could use the linked iPhone or Android device microphone, with all sound coming from the Sonos speaker. Could be a whole new business model for Sonos. Is this a good idea? Let me know if you want to use my idea (invention).
I'm brand new to Sonos, and absolutely love the gear so far! I've also spent much of the last 2 days browsing around all of the information on the Sonos web site and in this community forum, which has taught me a ton! I have one small issue that I'm wondering if there is an easy solution for. I have a playbar with a sub and two play-1's for surround. The playbar is connected to an LG 55LA7400 TV via the optical cable. My issue is that the TV volume is lower than the volume when I play music. When I use the Sonos system with TV, I have to bump the volume up 4 or 5 increments... no big deal... but then when I switch back to music it plays considerably louder than I would like, so I have to quickly turn the volume back down 4 or 5 increments, and hope my wife doesn't yell at me. LOL :) Is there any way to "equalize" the volume of the two different inputs in some way? I looked through the audio settings on my LG TV, but I didn't see anything related to changing the output le
I have a LG 55EF950V TV with wand remote (the TV is running webOS 2.2.0-1317). I would like to control the Sonos Playbar's volumne using the TV's "wand" remote (this runs over RF rather than IR). Has anyone managed to do this successfully on webOS 2.2? (I have seen some others post about this before with LG's wand but following others suggestions does not work).
I am adding a play 1 to my system and doing so under settings, add speaker, it then shows that controller needs to be update, select button for update controller, which brings me to the App Store for Sonos app (even though I am running the sonos app (ver 7) on my iPhone (10.1.1), I hit open and it appears to open my sonos app on my phone, then I try to go to settings and add speaker all over again and it goes thru the exact same process (a do loop), help?
I am a sonos virgin but just built one big room for my kitchen/entertaining space. It measures 21 meters by 9meters. I want to have a sonos system and don't know where to start ? I also want sonos in my other rooms- 2 bathrooms/ lounge/ master bedroom. Do I buy a bunch of play 5's and start from there ? Any help appreciated - thanks in advance. Colin
Hi, I just wanted to share this little info for others here. Our kids used to run to us parents all the time in order to choose the music or audio books for them in their room. So we figured out they needed their own Sonos controller. For obvious reasons, we didn't want to give them a full smartphone to do this. Here's what we did: - find an outdated Android phone without a SIM card - preferably one that is supported by Cyanogenmod or a similar alternative firmware - install the opengapps nano package (Cyanogenmod explains it in their wiki) to get Google Play - install the Sonos controller app via Google Play - enable immersive mode for the Sonos app in Cyanogenmod's settings - turn off the "double powerbutton tap starts camera" option in Cyanogenmod's settings - install Mobilock Kiosk Lockdown app via Google Play - in Mobilock, you can set the Sonos app to be started automatically - once running, remove any other app except Mobilock and Sonos from the app switcher We had a Nexus 4
I just finished purchasing and setting up my Sonos amps and bridge (well, my installer did it, actually) and I am trying to load the music from my ReadyNasNV+ into the Sonos desktop software. My NAS has approximately 90,000 FLAC files, all properly tagged and in redbook resolution. Sonos is very slow to load, and ultimately only a few of my folders showed up in the library. I received the following error message in the log: Wednesday, June 26, 2013 - 11:11 AM Eastern Time Not enough Sonos player memory to complete index of '//NAS-01-3A-DA/media/Music'. A partial index has been stored. After some further reading on this site I noted that there is apparently a limit of 40,000 songs. Sonos claims it can handle large music libraries, so why is the limit only 40,000? Granted, most people don't have 1.6 TB of FLAC files, but I had absolutely no problem streaming all of them using my old Squeezebox system. I am incredibly disappointed and frustrated with Sonos. Why on earth is there
When I'm not using the Sonos, i.e. it is not playing music from any source, the Sonos will start playing the sound from the computer, Mac Mini, whenever I start playing a YouTube video or start a song in iTunes. When this happens I have not done anything to start up Sonos! This seems to happen anytime there is a period of silence and then the sound starts. It is a problem as there are times that I just want the sound local to the computer and not go over Sonos.
Hi all...I've just purchased a Play 5 for my hubby for Christmas and want him to LOVE it. He has a LOT of cd's and a 5 disc CD changer which I'm sure he would like to to use at least until he gets used to the fact that with all the options and availability to get all the music he'll ever need via the apps. But he's an "old dog" who learns new tricks slowly. Doesn't even own a cell phone so I'm looking to also purchase a small laptop with keyboard ;) Ideally what I would like to do is be able to hook up his cd player, and an Echo Dot. I would love for him to have headphones but if I understand the way they work, is the sound you get through headphones is only as good as the headphones are, so I'm willing to sacrifice my sanity and hearing so he's able to listen to quality sound at window shaking levels. At this point, I'm thinking I need to start with the Play 5, the Boost to be sure of the best Wi-Fi connection possible, and a Connect to bring it all together. He also has wir
Hi, I installed my Playbar today and as it turns out only HDMI 2 returns sound via the playbar. All other devices (not on HDMI 2 don't. If I switch a device to HDMI 2 that device works. Is someone also experiencing the same problem or maybe has a suggestion or fix? Thanks!
