Hi I have already purchased 3 x Play1, 1 x sound bar and 3 x Play3 for downstairs and they are working fine. I have existing speakers ( 6 ) already mounted in the ceilings in the various bedrooms and the wires all go back to one point, next to my router. Do I just need either a connect amp or a Connect to send audio to all these 6 speakers and will I be able to play different music in each room as I can using the Play1, Play3 etc? I ask because there seems to be very few connectors on the back of either the Connect or Connect amp. Am I missing something? Many thanks for your help.
Hello ppl, I planning on getting a Sonos 5.1 system. However, I don't know wether I should buy a Playbar, Sub and two Play 1's or a Playbar, Sub and two Play 3's. My setup: Samsung UE65HU7500 PS4 Apple TV 3 The size of the section of living room where my TV is located is 6 metres by 4 metres. Hope you guys can give me some advise. Thanks!
I want to buy my 30-year-old son a Sonos for Christmas. He wants to stream music and especially to allow friends to stream music at parties as well. He has AT&T wifi in a small house and a Vizio sound bar with surround sound speakers connected to TV. What he wants to do: Stream music and be able to move that functionality around the house and onto the back deck. What does he need in order to do that? Thanks so much!
I am a sonos virgin but just built one big room for my kitchen/entertaining space. It measures 21 meters by 9meters. I want to have a sonos system and don't know where to start ? I also want sonos in my other rooms- 2 bathrooms/ lounge/ master bedroom. Do I buy a bunch of play 5's and start from there ? Any help appreciated - thanks in advance. Colin
Currently I have two play1's in my room... I want to set up airplay so it's a lot less hassle playing music through my mac or iPhone without having to use he Sonos Controller app. If I buy myself a playbar or play5 or AMP etc that has a line-in, and buy an apple airport express what else can I achieve? Would I be able to send a YouTube video or Netflix video through airplay and have the audio play through my speakers? Thanks for all comments
Hi all...I've just purchased a Play 5 for my hubby for Christmas and want him to LOVE it. He has a LOT of cd's and a 5 disc CD changer which I'm sure he would like to to use at least until he gets used to the fact that with all the options and availability to get all the music he'll ever need via the apps. But he's an "old dog" who learns new tricks slowly. Doesn't even own a cell phone so I'm looking to also purchase a small laptop with keyboard ;) Ideally what I would like to do is be able to hook up his cd player, and an Echo Dot. I would love for him to have headphones but if I understand the way they work, is the sound you get through headphones is only as good as the headphones are, so I'm willing to sacrifice my sanity and hearing so he's able to listen to quality sound at window shaking levels. At this point, I'm thinking I need to start with the Play 5, the Boost to be sure of the best Wi-Fi connection possible, and a Connect to bring it all together. He also has wir
Hi - is it possible to get the output from a bose wave 3 radio to sonos? I realise I can use the bose as a sonos speaker using a connect and the 'aux' setting. Looking to get multiroom but don't really want to get rid of it! Would settle for a work around if anyone has one! Thanks in advance for any help
I have pretty much made up my mind to go with either 2 or 4 Definitive Technology AW 6500 outdoor speakers. The plan is to start with 2 and see how it sounds and then add 2 more if needed. These speakers can handle 200 watts each. The impedance is rated at 4-8 Ohms. I have read a few people running 2 and some that are even running 4 of these speakers on a single Sonos Connect:AMP. However, it appears this amp is only rated at 55 watts per channel which seems pretty low for speaker that can handle 200 watts. I spoke with Crutchfield and they recommended using the Sonos Connect with a Yamaha R-S700 stereo receiver that provides 100 watts per channel and only 2 of the speakers. Any suggestions or input would be greatly appreciated. What would your choose for 2 of these speakers? 1. Sonos Connect:AMP 2. Sonos Connect with a separate stereo receiver? If so, what receiver? 3. Sonos Connect with A/V receiver? If so, what receiver? What would you choose for 4 of these speakers?
So I'm finally deciding to pick up my first sonos setup! We have quiet a large living room so I would appreciate the sound of a stereo pair. I can't decide between these 2 setups. Will 2 play 5's sound better? The thing is 2 play 1's and a play 5 allow me more to distribute the speakers around the house... can't decide. Maybe I just pick up the 2 play 1's and a play 5 and start saving up for another play 5 . :)
In general I'm suspicious of generic sound bar's appropriateness for "music". Interests are: Music is #1, home theater #2. How 'bout 2 Play 5's, but may also need a Play 3 for center?? Just trying to ensure music is good, but, naturally, want ability for theater atmosphere. As an aside, I currently have 4 Play 1's.
I have a few decisions to make, I was thinking of getting a sonos playbar and sub but with issues to Samsung JU series I will stick with my Samsung soundbar setup, unless people can convince me otherwise. I have 5 play 1's I live in a townhome and h have 5 alexa devices. I am able to get a Playbar $384 sub $384 play 3 $164.45 play 5 $219.45 I play 5 would be huge in my area, a play 3 I can totally handle, and I'm just worried about the playbar and sub combo. Any thoughts?
I currently have a play 5 that I've been using in a large living room for about 2 months. While I really like it, I often feel it has trouble filling the entire room. Anyway, I recently bought two play 1's (black Friday sale) that I planned on putting in a bedroom and kitchen for the full multi-room experience. However, I think I made the mistake of testing out the two 1's (stereo-paired) in the same room as the 5...the sound was absolutely incredible, a full surround system experience, and now I'm more conflicted than ever on what to do. I moved the 1's into their intended spots in the kitchen and bedroom, and while the multi-room experience is cool, I'm not crazy about how the 1's sound as stand-alone speakers (especially after listening in conjunction with the 5). What's the best approach from here? I don't want to spend that much more money here, but do want that surround sound in the living room back. Should I move the 1's back in the living room and get a 3 for the bedro
Hi, Long time lurker first time poster. I have an old LG tv/dvd player - DAT-200 currently being used to play vinyl through an Audio-technica AT-LP60. I would like to be able to play vinyl and still use my hi-fi speakers and stream to other rooms in the house. Please can you advise how I would add a Connect to this system and how it would work, it has two line ins, one line out and an optical in. I have looked at other posts but am still not sure how this will work, thanks in advance.
Hi sonos, I'm looking to connect my existing devices which work through Sonos without having to keep on changing cables about. Can you help please? I have a Sony wall mounted tv, a virgin TiVo box, Apple TV and a Sony cd/DVD player. I wanted to get better sound from the tv and also link them all up. Oh I have the latest virgin wifi box. All this kit is in the lounge, the Mrs also wants a Sonos device in the kitchen to play music via her iPhone/ iPad. Please can you advise on the most appropriate songs kit and how it could all be linked? Please note the to has only one hdmi cable to either cd/DVD player or Apple TV box at minute and is swopped manually. Many thanks James
