I have a pair of Play 3 set up as a stereo pair. A few months ago they began to randomly loose connection and the app says it could not find one of them. Nothing has been changed or unplugged from the setup. I go through the reconnect steps on the app and they reconnect. It happens randomly. My son-in-law has a Play 1 and his has started to do the same thing over the past few months. This suggests to me it is a software issue. Can Sonos please sort this issue out! I bought the speakers believing Sonos was a top end speaker system. I currently don’t believe this to be the case.
The mega thread for TV info and suggestions is more than dead. I'm looking for people's experience with recently purchased TVs available at Costco that are ballpark 77" and have and success with the Sonos arc systems, cec, dolby atmos, etc. Anyone that has recently purchased one and has had success without all the problems we here about, please let me know. Thanks in advance.
So I'm curious if anyone else lost Dolby Atmos ONLY in Prine Video after the 15.10 update? I have spent time wirh Prime and they claim nothing has changed on their end with the content or Apple TV 4k app, but I can play Dolby Atmos on every other service (apple TV 4k, Netflix, Paramount. Etc). Yet after the update all the content on Prime labeled Atmos is being played as multichannel 5.1. Anyone else experiencing this?
If your Sonos Arc and LG TV are not playing Dolby Digital Atmos, go to All Settings on your TV, then Sound, then Advanced Settings. On the respective input (e.g., HDMI 1) change it from the default PCM to BitstreamWhile you’re still on the screen in your Firestick setting screen for Audio and Video Diagnostics, you should see all the Dolby capabilities immediately change from No to Yes.
Hello,I recently purchased the ultimate Sonos setup: The Arc, two Era 300’s and Gen 3 sub.I am very satisfied with my purchase! The system sounds amazing, movies in Atmos are incredibly immersive even at lower volume and music in Atmos is an audiophile’s dream! The only situation that I think that system isn't maximized is listening to regular music in stereo.the powerful Era 300’s would sound so much better paired by themselves with the sub. the problem is that there isn't a way to create a pairing preset. One for viewing movies and listening to Atmos content and the other for listening to regular stereo music.I assume the reason being it takes a minute or two to pair the speakers due to the handshake process over WiFi. I don't mind waiting a minute to switch between presets but I won't do it now because of the extra steps needed to remove and add speakers.If you have the same setup, what are your thoughts on the subject? Is it a worthy feature request?
Sonos skill WAS enabled in Alexa but don’t recall any account linking taking placeSo following suggestion's found on here I have subsequently Disabled the Sonos skill and re-Enabled itThat triggers the re linking, prompted to sign into Sonos account, now says accounts are linked closing that screen, next screen is search for device But reports “Alexa couldn’t find a new device to connect”Asks if I can control device using Sonos app - Yes I can - it tries to connect again - fails again and again Found the suggestion on here about changing the Sonos Play:1 name and going thru whole process again - still no joy ( tried multiple names/times ) Any other suggestions please ? Sonos App : Ver 15:10 on Android phone running Android 11Sonos OS : S2Hardware version : 184.108.40.206-2.0I’m in the UK : so a supported region
The S1 app which is used for the old Play 5 gen 1 says "unable to connect to Sonos". I think it's to do with the TP link deco M5 mesh system I installed recently. I can reconnect by switching the router off and on, but it never lasts and the next time I open the app the speaker is gone again.If someone could help in step by step idiot proof terms I'd be eternally grateful. TIA
In previous versions of the sonos app you could select multiple speaker groups as outputs allowing you to quickly stream to multiple groups.I dont know when it changed but groups can no longer be multi selected. Selecting a new group removes the previous selected speakers and replaces with just the new group.For example, if you have Group A, B and C you used to be able to quickly output to groups A and B by selecting both groups. With new behaviour you can only ever select group A or B. The workaround is to create another new group D containing A+B, but this very quickly becomes unmanagable if you have more than 3-4 core groups.This functionity change has significantly reduced the usability of the groups in my opinion. Did it get removed on purpose or can i re-enable the behaviour somehow?
Bonjour La commu. Je cherche pour une salle de restauration de 90 M2 de forme rectangulaire 3m20 de plafond un système sans fil batterie. Quels modèles me conseillez-vous?Pour connecter téléphone/Ordinateur/tablette ou commande vocal si cela est possible. Merci beaucoup pour votre aide.
Yes, I know Sub Gen4 won’t be out until 2025. I just want to add my 2c that your Sub frequency range needs to go as low as 20Hz to accurately reproduce the audible frequency range of ~ 20Hz to 20KHz. This is the only issue giving me pause about purchasing a Sub gen 3 (which only goes down to 25Hz); well, that and the static issue reported by many in other threads. Also, the next Sub 4 needs to have a standard low-level in port, so I don’t have to add yet more subs taking up space just because I need sub-in ports. Thank you for your consideration.
HiI currently have a Playbar, Play:5 (Gen 2) stereo pair and Sub (Gen 2) in my TV room plus a single Play: 3 in my study. I am wanting to add speakers to my kitchen dining room which is medium size. Can I add a second stereo pair of Play:5 (Gen 2) to my system and should I get a second sub? The music quality is more important to me than the TV and movies, hence I don’t think moving the speakers to the kitchen diner and updating the TV room to Arc plus compatible speakers. I don’t watch action type movies, more Romcoms so I think the Atmos might be wasted on me. Happy to be corrected on this though 😊
I am on a quest to get the maximum audio quality from my system. I am interested in your opinions on where the weakest links are in my system.I am presently listening to music only by streaming from YouTube music. No other input source. I am streaming it through Sonos using a Sonos gen 1 Connect. I am using the optical out on the Connect which feeds into a miniDSP signal processor. It splits the optical input into 10 analog output signals which feed into my 10 amplifiers which are required to drive my Linkwitz LX521.4 speaker pair.The system sounds fantastic but I wonder if I can squeeze out a little more fidelity. Interested in your thoughts. Thanks, Ed.
I’ve read a couple posts, and it appears you cannot use multiple Sonos accounts on 1 system. I would like to raise a feature request to enable this. It is ridiculous that the leader in connected speakers doesn’t handle multiple users properly. Each user should have their own Sonos account. This is a serious design flaw and it should be corrected. If there is a solution that enables multiple Sonos accounts and I haven’t found it, please let me know. If not, then please make this an enhancement request.
My Playbar randomly cuts out. Internet signal is strong, but it happens with both Google Mesh and Eero mesh. I moved it from my upstairs to my basement and it seemed to work fine. Moved it back upstairs and it worked fine for a bit and then started cutting out again. Note that all areas of my house are on the same channel, so it’s not like moving from upstairs to downstairs should’ve changed anything.Neither the google mesh or Eero can change channels. The Eero automatically chooses the least cluttered channels, so this shouldn’t be an issue.I have four Sonos speakers on my upstairs floor - 3 play:1s and 1 Playbar. The former work fine and never skip. The latter will skip even though it’s only about 8 feet from the surrounds that do not. I could try to create a Sonosnet but CS told me that wouldn’t help because I’d need at least three wired devices. The only Sonos I can reasonably wire is one on my main floor since that is where the internet comes in. The eero hubs don’t have Ethernet
I have 4 of the in celing speakers in my house and im wondering if i can use the line in feature to connect to my ddj FLX 10 which has line in outputs. Im asking rather than testing as i dont currently own a cable thats long enough so wondering if anyone has tested this?
There definitely needs to be a discussion about how to get a multi person family that uses Spotify with Sonos to always use the correct spotify user. I am an IT Admin with deep experience with data and configurations, and some how, my wifes listening has still been merged with my spotify listening when I look at my 2023 Wrap data from spotify. Even though her songs do not show up in my Spotify recently played in Spotfy, her songs DO show up as my most listened to songs in my Wrap Up. Spotify support is absolutely no help. I have talked to multiple support people. All seem to get to the same point. If we listen on the spotify app, then this will not happen. But since we are using sonos, this is probably the reason.Using The Spotify app to play defeats the purpose of having a multi-room sonos system (THAT WAS EXPENSIVE) and multi person family. I really think Sonons needs to work on improving this. Anyone have any tips?
Is it possible to connect and use both line-in and Ethernet at the same time using the combo adapter?Is it possible, in a multi room system with 4 era 100, to use more line in connections ; for example one connected with the turn table, one with the cd player and one with an internet radio ?Any help is appreciated.
BackgroundIf you look through my comments in this forum you will see that I am a big fan of the original Sonos Move. I have a stereo pair and, when set up in the garden, are my favourite speakers. I have a garden room with Two 300s and a sub, which is the best sounding but not portable, nor outdoors.The outdoor listening experience, weather permitting, is great and different and with the two Moves, is my favourite way to listen to music.Move 2 PurchaseSo the Move 2 was announced. Double the battery life and stereo sound from a single unit. So with an upgrade voucher burning a hole in my wallet I decided to upgrade. The Move 1s will always get a decent 2nd hand price. One of the major reasons was the 24hr battery life, anything else would be a plus.Reading through all the reviews, some mentioned better sound and the stereo capabilities of course, but most focused on the extra battery life, touch controls, changes to the charging brick, Bluetooth changes and the line in capability.
