I'm thinking about setting up a Sonos network, and wanted to make sure I have this right. I presently have a Denon AVR-1700 receiver hooked up to a Bose pre-amp through the MD/Tape output, so that I can use the Bose 901 speakers I have. The RCA cables go to and from the pre-Amp via RCA. Other inputs to the receiver include a turntable (via RCA) and the television (via optical). It's my understanding that from the pre-amp I can link the Sonos Connect in via RCA, and then throw the signal back to the receiver via digital out on the Connect. I believe anything on the receiver (television, turntable, etc...) could then be transmitted to Play 1 speakers in other zones. Is this correct? Will there be a delay? Pretty confusing (at least for me), so I appreciate any help. Thanks.
Hi all, last week I took my sweet two sonos play1 with for a jurney. I just wanted to be able to listen the music in a new place where I stay. My sonos app was full configured with all playlists, favorites and streaming services I use every day. Ok all looks great. My first stop. I turning the speakers on hoping to changing the wifi settings and be able to listen the music. NO WAY! My android software version 6.4.8. How such a simple stupid think cannot be done with wifi only. Ok what options do I have to set it up: Add another sonos system. Let's give a try. Somehow I got it working. I could connect to my speakers. But her is the second disappointment. Where are all my saved steaming account, playlists, favorites I have already configured. Nothing is there. Why?! What did I do wrong? It cannot be that such a simple features are not there. Please help! Dear support Does the sonos implemented these or similar user stories: User story 1: As a sonos customer
Hello, I am a "newbie" with SONOS. I have not bought one but know I want to. I am not sure if I need the Connect or Connect:Amp? My situation is; I have a home with built in speakers (installed by the builder two years ago). I have a main "socket" on my second floor with an RCA and IR plugin for the speakers. I have 2 speakers on the first floor and basement and both floors have a control for power, volume, and source for the speakers. I am not sure what all of this means. Right now I play music over my computer but I can plug my iPod or smartphone in with the jack and play music. I want the ability to play music from my device anywhere but I don't know if I need the amp. Any suggestions? Thank you.
My sonos works perfectly in the bedroom, but it won't connect in the living room. I'm trying to play from my laptop library, but get a message: error message unable to play 'name of song' the file name of location .m4a cannot be found In one room it works fine, in the other, nothing.
Currently, we have two Connects (for two zones). One is connected to 6 hardwired outdoor speakers through 3 Russound P75 Amps (one zone, but each set of outdoor speakers can be adjusted (on/off/volume) via each P75 Amp. Additionally, we have a second Connect that feeds into one Russound P75 Amp for 4 in ceiling family room speakers. Both Connects and all Amps are located in our family room inside our entertainment unit. We would like to expand the system to include one or two speakers to our living room, which does not have any hardwired speakers. My question: if we purchased one or two Play 5 speakers for this room, do we need a separate Connect Amp or would these speakers be able to create a separate zone? Second, we have a $500 Bluetooth Bose Bluetooth speaker that has excellent sound quality and an aux input. If we wanted to let we this in life of purchasing Sonos speakers, is it possible to simply buy a Connect to create a separate zone to play music through the Bose speaker using
I love the Sonos system but I am really disappointed there is no support for bookmarks in audiobooks (and podcasts). I love listening to audiobooks and since I'm from Sweden Audible is not an option if I want to listen to Swedish audiobooks. I buy my books in MP3 or on CD and make them real bookmarkable audiobooks in the .m4b-format with the program Audiobook Builder so they are not DRM-protected. It's also annoying that I can't play the audiobooks I have on my iPhone in the Sonos app, I need to use the computer version. So please Sonos, fix support for bookmarks in audiobook (and podcasts) so all your audiobook loving customer can bookmark their audiobooks. :)
I was over on the B & H Photo web site and I was looking at the SONOS Subwoofer. It indicated that the Sub now includes "Integrated SONOSNet 2.0 Extender". I then when to the SONOS website and see no reference to this "New" stuff. I also noticed on the B&H site that they had discontinued Subs. Could someone please explain what changed and why the new is better?
I have a 4,200 sq foot house. Excellent router with zero dead spots in my home. My downstairs is all hardwood flooring. My living room I want to make surround sound. The living room and kitchen are essentially connect with no wall. 20ft by 40ft for the two combined my living room is 20ft by 20ft. I was thinking I should get a playbar, a sub, and 2 play ones for the surround sound effect in living room. I also want a play 1 in my dining room which is separate from my other rooms. Dining room is also hardwood with a large rug but the room is 15ft by 12ft. I also want a speaker I can take outside and put on a mount on my covered patio in my back yard. I was thinking a play 5 here or two play 3s. I don't have any backyard neighbors so sound isn't an issue but my budget is (aka my wife). Thoughts on if I am on the right track in my thinking of speaker size for the rooms and outdoor patio?
So, I am really wanting to get into Sonos, but have some concerns about how to best approach with my existing set up. I will lay out the scenario and ask for some input on what anyone feels is the best options for me. I have a large great room (about 40'x40') that currently has TV on fireplace, with center channel on mantle, SUB, 2 tower speakers and in ceiling surrounds. It works great for surround TV and also great for listing to music in the big room. All of my components are in the adjoining office (Pioneer Elite receiver, sat DVR, record player, apple TV) and input sourced through the Receiver with single HDMI to the TV. Its controlled with a Logitech IR remote. The scenario I want to end up with is good TV sound (not necessary to have surround here anymore, as I have it downstairs) plus ability to listen to music that sounds full in the big room. I was thinking soundbar as first step (remove towers and center channel) but I am concerned the music will be really thin in
Our router was moved to a closet, so I can't plug my Sonos Connect to it as well as keep it connected to my analog receiver and speakers. What do I need to connect to a network? Is the Bridge still my best option or are there other options?
I just purchased the Play:1 to listen to music without turning my TV on. I use a Mac mini as an HTPC for all my media I was hoping this device would be able to use my iTunes library from my iPhone however I soon realized that the music needs to be stored on the iPhone. What good is this if my only choices are to cherry pick songs to store on my Phone for playback or running the risk of using all my phones space to store over 50,000 songs just to use this device. I hope I'm missing something and the community is able to help because at this point the speaker is useless. Sorry if I'm coming off vexed I'm just irritated. I was hoping after hardwiring (ethernet) the speaker I assumed I was able to play from my iTunes iOS app or at best be able to play ALL my music from iTunes without using every bit of space on my phone. The speaker is beautiful and is well made. I want to like it but maybe Bluetooth is the better option. Thank you for help in advance.
Hello fellow Sonos users, My wife & I are working on remodeling the basement and are at the budgetary phase. My wish to is to add another pair in the house of PlayBar & Sub. The room will primarily used by teens (not us - we want to have some peace & quiet!) and if we can't budget the PB+Sub I'll be looking for plan B. Please don't hate me: anyone has a suggestion for a soundbar + wireless sub and maybe 2 more wireless speakers to make a 5.1 setup? Was looking a Vizio, pricing is appealing ($500 for a 5.1 kit) but what about sound, will I cry my price difference away in regret? Same idea with Sony, Polk and other vendors. Damn why did Sonos make sure a good product? :cool: Looking for advice & guidance, thanks in advance!
Hey, I want to connect a CD player with radio into a PLAY 5 2nd Gen (line-in)- which player to get?? Ideally would have bluetooth, should come without speakers, and amp function not needed as connecting to Sonos system. Does not have to be top tier machine. Thoughts? Thanks, Brian
I'm new to the world of SONOS, so please bear with me. I purchased the soundbar, 2 One's and SUB to create the so-called 5.1. After readfing the forums i'm starting to understand that DTS is not possible without workarounds. I have an LG 4K TV that is set to output Dolby Digital, an optical cable straight from the TV to the soundbar. XBOX one. I have managed to get Star Wars BluRay to churn out 5.1 from the XBOX One which does sound awesome, but when I play my MKV's from my NAS via the XBOX one, they only play in stereo, or no sound at all. Has anyone managed to find a way around this. I think the MKV's maybe decoded to DTS. I have also tried via Kodi, but again only playing in Stereo or not at all. Any help is greatly appreciated
Just wanted to add to TV compatibility notes: The LG 65UG8700 is a new 4k TV that you might assume would easily pass 5.1 from its optical port for the playbar. WRONG. It works under certain circumstances sometimes, but the reality is that this TV came shipped with its audio set to prefer PCM. To give you an idea of the amount of work involved: - MUST have a harmony remote - I had to load special LG model number on to my harmony remote - This old LG model number gave me 3 new options for "service menu" - "in-start" - "in-stop" - Once I had the harmony remote set, I had to locate a password (0413) for the service menu - In the service menu I had to go option by option to find something familiar - Finally under "Tool Option 7" I found PCM - Change that to AC3 - Reboot the TV Now the TV will prefer to pass AC3 when possible.
Hi Sonos, firstly "I LOVE MY SONOS SPEAKERS"! However I appear to have lost some of the small rubber feet from the Play 3 speakers I have. Please could you let me know where I can purchase some, as the SONOS rep at my local John Lewis does not know where I can. P.S. My favourite are the Play 1's - sleek and powerful
