Using Sonos in the bedroom has always been important to me as I like music to fall asleep to as well as wake up too.
However I have always found the volume control extremely poor.
I have a Connect Amp and some RS1 Monitor Audio speakers and the room is a little larger than the average bedroom at 15ft x15ft approx.
1) Turning the volume down to very low levels is tricky to say the least because RIGHT NEXT to the lower part of the volume is the mute! and, you guessed it, when I try to use the volume down that low it is all too easy to hit the mute plus the control at the lower volumes when the surroundings are silent the smallest movement is too much.
I always thought someone at Sonos would notice this and move the mute away from the lowest part of the volume to the highest or somewhere even further away - but no. it's never moved, so I was left thinking it must be just me who has this problem.
Since upgrading to the QAcoustics Concept 20's which are amazing, the sensitivity is higher and therefore it is even more of a problem controlling the volume.
Surely Sonos can move the mute
or even better, make the volume move intelligent and use less sensitivity in the first 30% of the slide but it only controls 10% of the amps power - or something similar I.e not a straight line of increase but curved.
2) Volume control based on output volume I.e. you set the volume and no matter what the source quality or volume, it's still the same output wattage. surely this is possible nowadays.
rant over. I realise nothing will change, it's safer and less frustrating that way!
