I set an alarm up for my sonos play 3 in my room. Which has worked fine a couple of times letting me pause it but today every time i hit pause it just restarts the playlist I chose as the alarm music. Now I cant use that speaker amd have just turned the volume right down. Help
My understanding is this was initially released only for apple products, because of the variety and varying quality of microphones used by android phone manufactures. Surely the simple solution to this problem is to use an external microphone, that plugs into the headphone or micro USB port. SONOS could either create one, and make money by selling it. Or team up with third parties currently producing these microphones, and get licensing money from certified Trueplay compatible microphones.
Hello I just purchased & installed a Play 3 (like it very much) my question: when not i use, is it beneficial to disconnect the power AC ? would that prolong the life of the amp ? The bridge is also "ON" constantly. I prefer not to leave my components on all the time. What is your opinion ?
I have a desktop iMac and would like Sonos Play 1 to be the output speaker. Any way to do this? ie. via Airport Extreme or some other way? Checking to see if Sonos has updated Play 1 to include this feature. From much older posts I've found so far, it seems that I'd have to keep my computer speaker setup for playing movies or You Tube videos etc. from my iMac. And use Sonos as a separate system for playing Sonos playlists, Apple Music etc.......But maybe Sonos has updated?. Could someone please let me know? Thanks! Also, is there a Sonos solution for this?
Odd title aside I am curious if anyone has had any issues mounting the playbar under a large TV when the front of the TV and wall are approximately 6 inches apart. I know the speakers will be angling 45 degrees up in the position I am considering but will the space between the TV and wall create any distortion or be a sound quality issue? I plan to mount about 3-4 inches below the TV. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I have 3 Play 1 speakers. One of them doesn't stop playing the radio channel it woke me up today. If i pause the stream it will start playing again after a few seconds. I can't start any other music on this speaker. In return i get the error code 1002. I have already tried turning it off and on again but it started playing again. After that i reset the speaker. I can't believe it but again the radio channel started to play by itself. Please help me!
Hello, I'd like to add a Play speaker in my garage (probably mount on the wall or ceiling). My garage is not temperature-controlled and I live in New Jersey, USA. So in the winter it will be cold (20-30 F) and in the summer it will be pretty warm (70-90 F) . . . pretty much what the temperature is outside. Can Play speakers handle these temps? What about the Connect:AMP? I'm also thinking about outdoor speakers, but the Connect:AMP would be in an unconditioned utility closet. Thanks, in advance, for your help!
Hi Hopefully someone can help, I am trying to set up my Onkyo av receiver with Sonos connect and a play:5. Id like to be able to play all my music from Onkyo and have the play 5 in a separate room playing the the same music as amp. Hope someone can help
Hi all, i intend on buying sonos speakers to listen to music in my roughly 80m2 living and dining room. Which speakers would you recommend? I assume 2 play 1 will not be sufficient, right? My budget is sufficient for max 4x play 1 or 2 play 3, or one play 5. Thanks a lot
My wife has been very resistant to any audio equipment in the formal living room, decorated in a french style. She really warmed up to the idea of the Sonos in the living room once she heard sound quality with the easy to use informative remote without seeing too much equipment. Hear is the dilemma; she wants [I]pretty[/I] speakers for the living room they can be floor standing to mid size. I would prefer something that is elegant as opposed to be trying too hard to be inconspicuous. Budget probably ~$1500 USD. I know it is probably too low for [I]really[/I] elegant speakers. Any suggestions?
Using the Sonos app with Google Play Music how does one add a song to a Google Play Music playlist? I only see the option to add the song to a Sonos playlist. This presents an issue since I also listen to music through wireless Jaybird earphones when out and about or at the gym. In this case I use the Google Play Music app and would like the songs I added while listening at home to appear on the playlists there as well. Maybe I'm just missing something which is definitely possible. Thanks!
Hi All I'm looking to buy a Sonus setup. I have a new Samsung TV HD 4K and I would like to play music from the TV, particularly You Tube but also from my Galaxy phone and from my Ipad. It looks like I need the Play Bar and a wireless Sub to play from the TV but can I play from my phone/iPad thorugh the Play Bar :? Thanks :D
I just got my first pair of Sonos units - two Play:3's for the kitchen and bedroom and I absolutely love them. I'm not a huge audiophile, but the convenience and total plug 'n play nature of Sonos is what attracted me to it. Of course the next thing that occured to me was how to get this connected up to my stereo. What I don't understand is why the basic Connect is $349 while the Play:3 units are $299 each. I mean if anything it seems like a Connect is just a Play:3 without the speakers and amp? Why does it cost so much more for fewer features? Seems like the guts of the connect should be a $99 unit - I meant he appleTV is $99, and it does way more (At least in terms of technological capability - video/etc) than the connect. To be honest I've been drooling over Sonos for years - and I know the quality is very high, but the expense of the units has always put me off. It wasn't until the Play:3 that I felt like there was enough bang-for-the-buck to justify diving in... I'm proba
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
