So I’m doing the setup for surround speakers but I just don't understand what the app wants here.It asks me to get Infront of my TV and select the speaker I can hear.But where am I facing? Towards TV or rear speakers?Im selecting as you would face to the tv but it feels the speaker levels are off after TruePlay.So what is meant here? Facing towards TV or towards Speakers? Sorry but this is just confusing and unclear since it changes the whole setup.Maybe I'm overthinking here..
I am in the process of building a new house and we are in the framing stage. We are getting a new TV (Samsung Frame) which will be mounted over a fireplace. We currently have a Sonos Sound Bar , and two Ikea Bookshelf speakers set to surround sound.Mounting a Sound Bar is not going to be feasible above the fireplace since it is a frame TV. Since we are willing to buy all new equipment and prefer to go ceiling, what us the best option? Do I need bookshelf Speakers? Also, we like to extend 2 ceiling speakers in the kitchen area to extend music or tv as well.
I am planning to get sonos speakers for outdoor area. I have a pool area and garden at a total of 5-7000 sqft. I was planning to get 1 amp with 3 pairs of sonos architectural sonance outdoor speakers and a 6.1 sonance garden series with sonos amp. how should I calculate if that is enough or not? Is there a thumb rule to calculate?
I see that people have asked similar questions, but I can’t seem to find the right answer. I have today a couple of sonos:1’s and 1 sonos:5. The latter has a vinyl player connected to it. If I would like to also connect a CD player to the same sonos:5 I will need a Sonos Port or a sonos connect, OR can I merely buy one more Sonos:5 and connect the CD player directly into that? I realise that I would then need to locate the new sonos:5 right next to the existing sonos:5 and that may be silly. What to do? PS: I am using Spotity for conveniency, and vinyl for the best experience here but I do have a lot of CD’s with music that is not on Spotify so that is the reason behind it. Additional question: I don’t think the Sonos sound is very good, but probably just ok. Is there anything I can do to improve the sound apart from spending 2000$ to buy more speakers, a sub, etc?
Hi all! I was hoping someone would tell me what I need to buy for a great home theater system. Our family room is 22’ x 22’ (500 sq. ft.) and we have a TV and a bluetooth record player. Can someone tell me what I need to buy and where I need to hang/place it?
Hello,I think I know the answer to this but I’m just wanting to be very sure before making an expensive decision. I currently have a very 1990’s hifi system - CD player, amp, passive speakers. I love this but want to be able to play my large digital stored music library too. So I think I have settled on using a NAS drive with a Sonos Port, which I’ll then hardwire to my amplifier, but also have some Sonos speakers around the house too. This way, I can still run my CD player and TV into my amplifier (something which is more of a problem if using e.g. a Brennan B3 due to lack of line-out!).Anyway, with regards to a NAS drive - I just want to check if all I will need to pay for/add to my system is the NAS drive (enclosure plus HDD’s of course) and the Sonos equipment. Am I right in thinking the free Sonos app will access the NAS and provide the interface to browse through the music stored on it? Or will I also need to use e.g. Plex (either free or paid subscription). From what I’ve gather
Stereo Paired Play 5s: Can't Select Both L and R speakers when source is Line In from Turntable L and R
I have a stereo paired set of Play 5s that work beautifully with streaming content from the app. I recently purchased a turntable with preamp. I have two cables running out from the preamp to the two speakers (L and R). When I set up the turntable in the Sonos app. I ended up with a configuration that looks like the image below. Which means I can only select one speaker for playing audio. Both are working, but only one at at a time. I’m confident I screwed up the initial set up, But I can’t even figure out how to delete the turntable from the app to start over. Grateful for any help. (Be gentle with me.)
I tried pairing my PC keyboard to my Kindle Fire HD8 which I primarily use as a sonos controller at my desk.I was able to type in the search bar and use the volume controls on the keyboard. I was wondering if there are shortcuts that will allow me to search, and select from search results? This would be amazing if possible.
My Sonos S1 goes offline a lot. Even when wifi still working fine. But the worst thing about it is that if I’m listening to an audio file on Audible, for instance, when Sonos goes back online the book goes all the way back to the very BEGINNING of the book. It’s infuriating. Especially as there is no way to know where you were which makes you manually search for it. Anyone else experienced this before? Thank you so much in advance! kind regards,
I have in ceiling wiring in Kitchen (marked in Yellow) . Red is the TV. Green dots are the in wall wiring ( I do not have to us if not needed)All the wiring is dropped in my media room upstairs. For TV, I have 2 ethernet cables. One for internet and another goes to the media room. I think it is to have a HDMI over Cat6 (or so I think)Can I get a Sonos Arc for the TV. And a Sonos Amp for the in ceiling speakers in the kitchen and play the same sound from the TV in the kitchen (Not as surround rear but as 2 stereo speakers)? The idea is to watch TV and dont have to raise the volume too high to be able to hear in the kitchen. Would there be any lag? How can I connect the AMP to the TV? Will the AMP connect to Sonos Arc? What is the good set up for what I am trying to accomplish?
Hi - I’m trying to maximize the Sonos home theater experience (to the extent that is possible). One bummer…..wife will not let me install an Arc Soundbar under the TV. So I’m purchasing two invisible Sonance speakers that will hide in the drywall on either side of the TV. After reading many posts on here….this is my plan: Buy 3 sonos ampsFirst Amp will power the two sonance speakers mentioned above to create a phantom center. Since I can’t get an Arc, my hope is that these two speakers will be an adequate substitute for center channel dialogue.Second Amp will power two additional FRONT speakers on the far left and far right of our living room for to expereince the true left and right channelsThird Amp will power two additional speakers on the rear left and rear right of our living room for rear surround sound.Finally I’m adding an Sonos Sub to the set up. Will this work to allow me to experience a 5.1 home theater set up? Or will the first two amps and speakers mentioned abov
Since I switched to Windows 11 I can't add folders to my music Library settins. I'm trying to add a music folder that's on my internal hardrive and I keep getting the message "Sonos was unable to add the music folder, Reason: The computer "DELLPC" refused to let Sonos connect to it.
Some icons for the radio stations in "My Sonos" are blank.When I play a station with a blabk icon, the correct icon appears in the darkened bar at the bottom of the screen. So I presume the icon is available.Refreshing the app’s cache doesn’t help. How can I get the missing icons?(Background info: Android app, version 14.20.1, Dec 2022)
I am a new owner of Sonos system (Arc, Sub and 2 One).I'd like to ask if it's possible to connect an EPSON EH-TW9400 projector (no HDMI output or optical port) to my Sonos Arc to get audio dolby atmos.Is it possible If I use HDfury Arcana or any other HDMI adapter?Thank you in advance.
Hi all,I have a SONOS surround system for my living room that works great and recently purchased a surround sound system for the basement (Beam Gen 2, two One SL’s and Sub Mini), but I’m not able to get Dolby Atmos working via my PS5 on my LG OLED55B6P.I know there’s some tricks to get Dolby Atmos working on the PS5 and I’ve followed those settings.This are the setting I’m using on the TV while having HDMI connected to the HDMI 2/Arc port to my Sonos Beam.Sound Out → Audio Out (Optical/HDMI Arc)All Settings → Sound → Sound Out → Audio Out (checked)In a sub bullet of the Audio Out I have Digital Sound Out set to Auto and SIMPLINK set to On.Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
My golf simulator projector, an Epson 1080, has only a single prong audio out. If the projector RCA out is converted to HDMI, will that converted output work in an ARC soundbar? Is there another workaround to get audio to the soundbar?
