Can you run the playbar as a play 1 style mono speaker i.e. turn of the sound processing for streamed music (for TV the surround/processing etc is fine). When streaming music to the playbar I find the sound processing on it makes a mess of the music so I'm looking for the playbar to act as a clean neutral speaker in a group.
Does playbar actually work with television content. I have previously tried to connect television audio to the auxiliary device on my sonos system and the buffering creates a lip sync issue. I always assumed that Sonos buffered in order to maintain adjusted synchronization between devices.
I have a covered porch and can mount a play 3 where it would be completely impossible for it to get wet. i would also bring it indoors in the fall and remount it in the spring so that it did not have exposure to the elements during the really cold months (live in Chicago). any reason to think i would be doing damage to the speaker with this setup? thanks!
Hi Sonos team, I own a PLAY:3 speaker and have had trouble with updating the software therefore not allowing me to use my device. I have attempted to re-pair it and update it over both wireless and wired connections with the Error Code 1101 popping up each time I try. If you could help me with this problem it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, Jack
According to the FAQ at https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1589/related/1, it sounds like you can set up your wireless devices (laptop, tablet, etc.) to use SonosNet as a wireless mesh for the home. Is that correct? I thought SonosNet was proprietary and could only be used by Sonos components. Allowing SonosNet to be used by non-Sonos devices is a VERY value-added feature. This means that having a Play:1 in your distant room, for example, would give Wifi access to the network/internet to mobile devices in that room (via SonosNet). I see a VERY good benefit for having additional Sonos components (including Sonos Bridge) in that regard. Saves you from buying Wifi Repeaters to extend the wireless range for tablets & computers in your house. Did I read the FAQ correctly? I hope so :)
Hi everyone! I was looking into buying a UltraHD Bluray for my house (that I also really want to use for regular blurays) and I was wondering which one is best / friendlier to convert DTS / DTS HD / DD+ / Atmos/ Etc... to DD in order to do 5.1 with my Sonos system. I currently have the Playbar, the SUB and two Play 1's on my family room and my TV (Sony x850c) can do DD5.1 pass-through. As of right now, all the devices I have (minus the PS3 and 4 if they have to convert DTS to DD) can pass / convert DD 5.1 to the TV via HDMI, so ideally (to husband proof my house) I was thinking on getting a device that could do the same (and to stop having to switch my PS4 / 3 over to optical to get surround sound with movies). The XBox One S sounds attractive because it also play games, but I was curious if it suffers from the same issues of than the PS3 / 4 have (no DTS conversion over HDMI), and how to know how good of a UltraHD Bluray player it is. And same with the K8500, I know is a gr
Hi there, I have just purchased a play 5 and want to connect a turntable to it, should I go for a Flexon vinylplay or a Rega RP1 with a pre amp? If it's the RP1 which amp would you recommend? Obviously I would like the best sound possible for about that kind of money, any help or advice will be appreciated. .
I recently purchased the 5.1 Sonos package in Canada and will be relocating my belongings to Europe in a month. I would like to bring my equipment with me. Do you know if I can order a new set of European power cables for my speakers (or) if the speakers will be able to handle the higher wattage in Europe? I don't want to purchase power adaptors for each speaker as I would ideally like to have EU cables.
This question probably has already been answered but can not find a specific answer to it. Can or will there be Sonos integration with Echo Dot using a Sonos CONNECT wireless streamer without using line in ( voice control through Alexa) I am not referring to Play speakers but Sonos Connect Device. Thanks
Hi All, I am new to Sonos, yesterday I set it up for the first time and was prompted to configure a remote, which I did. As I was new to the system I configured the remote, volume up, volume down etc... was not the correct thing to do but it worked. I wanted to change the remote and the controls, so I reprogrammed the remote and selected "Replace Current Control" which allowed me to reconfigure the remote. i.e. press up button, then up 3 times. Then press down button and down button 3 times and finally the mute button. That's when i realised I didn't program the mute button correctly. Now when I tried to "Replace Current Control" again, at the first press of the up button, the software states that it's finished the configuration of the remote and ends. I have reset the system (holding play/pause on power up) and run through the setup wizard, but when go to add the remote, the first press of the up button, the software states that it's finished the configuration of the remote.
Is there a way to integrate Sonos with a Wink Hub2? I want to connect it to my Ring door bell since I already have eight Play 1's all through out my house including a Connect Amp with outdoor speakers. I want to make sure I can hear my door Bell no matter where I am from home. Also by integrating with Wink, I was hoping to connect it to Alexa or something similar so I can give my Sonos voice commands like I do with my Xbox One and Kinect. Is this all possible?
Hi all, I recently bought myself a couple of play 1's to get me started. The plan is to expand over time. I'm happy to listen to streamed music these days but the wife is insisting that we must have a CD player as we already own hundrends of cd's. I'd like to get a sonos set up in the lounge and the choice comes down to 1x play 5 or a pair of play 1's. I know that the play 5 has a line in (to connect existing CD player) but is there any advantage of using a connect over the line in on the play 5? If not I'll just listen to the play 5 and compare with stereo play 1's. Also if I use the line in on a play 5 is there a time delay between the music in different rooms? Thanks
My system consists of Boost, Stereo Pair Gen2 Play5, Connect and five Play1s,. I have Sonosnet set to channel 11 and my home 2.4ghz network (ASUS RT-66 Merlin Firmware) set to channel 1. Channel 6 is always congested. My immediate neighbour has a Sky router that must be set to Auto as it is regularly changing channel, causing me dropouts. Sonosnet does not appear as a continuous signal, popping up on inSSIDer as multiple connections when Sonos is playing but only occasionally when not playing. My questions are: Is there a way of having Sonosnet active continuously so as to block my neighbours Auto wanderings? My 2.4ghz channel 1 home WiFi is little utilised, but appears as a constant signal and as most of my other devices are connected to the 5ghz WiFi so can I have Sonosnet co-existing on channel 1 without too much issue or is the mere presence of a signal from my 2.4ghz WiFi going to cause me lots of problems? ? I wish Sonos would consider using 5ghz for Sonosnet (not just for 5
My grandfather always used to play an old a.m. radio fairly loud near the doors / windows at his house whenever he left the house as a security deterrent for bad guys...make them think twice before breaking into his house. It would be really nice to switch on a "Home Security / Vacation mode" that would play selected music/radio stations at different random times...or perhaps have a calendar schedule very similar to a programmable thermostat schedule. All customizable from your Sonos controller / iphones /android device.
Hi, When you connect to the line-in connector of a Play 5 in a stereo pair, am I right to assume that the Play 5 is recording the line-in (ADC), streaming it to the second Play 5 which is decoding it back (DAC) ? If this is is the case, isn't there a loss of quality ? Basically this would also mean that using any external DAC (even the best one) connected to line-in would not change the sound quality... Regards.
