I have a large indoor room (kitchen/living/dining combo almost 1000 sq ft) and would like accomplish 2 things with Sonos: 1. Greatly enhance sound quality of TV sound but don’t need a truly immersive experience. 2. Play music while cooking and entertaining. I also have a large outdoor covered deck. Want to accomplish exact same goals outside as above stated for indoor room. Outdoor area is 1050 sq ft What would you recommend? Thanks very much!!!
Hi! I've decidced to change my current setup with Sonos and i'm not familiar with its capabilities.I'm interested in getting one Beam and two Moves. I would like the two moves to move around the house and when it's time for movie to pair them for stereo with the beam and eventual sub.Would that be possible and if so would you suggest to be good idea or is there a flaw in my desire.As addition will it be possible to stream the sound from PC to sonos and a wall projector at the same time without any additional complication and/or latency?Best regards!
The Sound bar was great for sound with surround. Unfortunately, it failed after five years. I purchased a Beam recently, and to follow up on a previous conversation, the Sound bar is much better for those of us with hearing issues. The beam is just not as dynamic with sound. I just returned the Beam, not so much for the sound, but because I still have an older TV and the Beam (and the Arc) both now utilize the HDMI eport or Arc port. The Sound bar utilized an optic cable and I could control the volume of my TV audio on the Sound Bar with my TV remote. With the Beam & Arc I will have to purchase a newer TV in order to do this. (Current uses RF remote, would need IF for TV & Remote for Beam or Arc) The Sound Bar had no issue with RF. I understand Sonos will be refurbishing the Sound Bars that we turn in and reselling. It would be great if Sonos just made a sound bar that can work in either option so that at some point if I bought a newer TV I would not have to change my Sonos p
We just bought a small seasonal 2nd home. I have a nice Sonos system all hardwired at our main place. I want to do the best I can within Sonos lineup for our new place and 2 Move speakers should work. I’m not a tech wizard so I have some questions, Do I need another Sonos Amp to run these as a pair? I do have Wi-Fi at the new place and want the flexibility to move them around and outside.BIG QUESTION, can I use my main homes Sonos app that already has all my music sources, playlists and channels set up, at the 2nd home? I would rather not set it all up again. Any help is much appreciated on either topic.
Hi,Newby here.I've read thru the 'Using Sonos as PC speakers' post which explains a lot of the options. However, as I'm new to Sonos I wanted to understand my options and any associated limitations in my use scenario.I will be going whole home with Sonos over the coming months but only have a Roam at the moment as wanted to test operability and the sound profile.My question is regarding one room, a home office, where I would like to connect both a local TV and a local PC to the same Sonos product and be able to,1. Watch TV, mainly when the wife has commanded the main room, (which will have ARC/Sub/Era 300s), or with news in background whilst working. Stereo presentation is fine, Atmos not necesarily needed.2. Use the speaker for PC audio, (Teams, music etc) Not likely video as the speaker will be at 90' to me when using PC so a short audio delay would probably be fine.3. Playing same audio around the whole house.It seems I'm looking at units that will provide 2 inputs.So suggestions an
So I bought an Era 300. Love it. However I am told that playing physical atmos music media is far better than streaming it for pure quality.I would like to buy another Era 300, an Arc and a sub Will I be able to play Atmos physical media through a ‘device’ and get true atmos sound? If so what ‘device?’Sony x800m2?Something else?
I have 2 era 100s laying on my desk in front of me with a sub mini.I am thinking of adding a beam gen 2 to the setup and converting the era 100s to rears.Want to mention that my room is is slightly big yet closed with not a lot of open space. My question is : in my case is the beam worth it ? will it enhance my experience a lot, mainly for listening to music and watching movies/tv series (w/o dolby atmos) ?
Hello, I’m a bit overwhelmed and not sure where to start with selecting the right components for my space. The space is 45 ft x 45 ft, ceiling height is 16 ft. This is a multi-use space, will be used as a garage hangout area, used for entertainment, etc… I will have a large screen TV mounted centered on one of the walls. I am not sure if the best plan would be an Immersive Set with an Arc + Gen 3 sub + 2 Era 300s or possibly setting up a 5 speaker - one at each corner, or some other configuration. Not sure where to start. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! -Mike
Hi We are currently building a 3 level townhouse . On the bottom level I will have a high end hiding system inside . There will be 3 balconies and I am looking for a good sound system on each of the 3 level balconies, it needs to be based on wireless speakers as I do not want to run anymore cables from inside to out . I will have a very good wifi mesh system. Each balcony is outside with ocean views but undercover . I have allowed to have power outlets 2 metres above ground on each side of each of the balconies . My high system DAC uses tidal and Roon . my question is : would era 300 or Sonos 5 or move Pairs on each balcony be best ? Or is there a better solution . I want to be able to control what balcony is playing at any time and if at all possible have different things playing on different balconies cheers and thanks for any input Warren
Hello everyone!Thank you for having me. Please excuse me if my English is not perfect, it is not my native language.I want to purchase two Sonos Era 300 speakers. I listened to them, and they were fantastic, but I am not sure if they will be worth it in the future.I don't want to buy new speakers next year after making such a significant investment. I'm not an expert in this topic, please forgive me mistakes, but a few things got my attention, and I would like to discuss it with you all and hear other opinions.Bluetooth technology has undergone a complete overhaul with the release of Bluetooth 5.2 LE after a long period of inactivity. The latest upgrade offers a clearer sound quality with low power usage. In the past, audio quality was subpar till Bluetooth 5.1, especially with expensive speakers and headphones where the difference can be easily noticeable. Regrettably, the Sonos Era currently only supports Bluetooth 5.1.The situation is similar with WiFi, where a new frequency range h
Hello all, My current music systems consist of: Deezer Family Subscription2x pre-digital hi-fi separates systems, both with tape loops, one with a turntable, the other with a minidisc playerSonos Roam I’ve been trying to tease out how best to link these all together. 2x Ports would peg me with roughly £800 costs, so I’ve started looking at 2x Connect Gen 2 instead, for £300ish. I understand that they’ve been discontinued and I’m avoiding Gen 1s and have read about the S1/S2 split. The Roam, bought new, is the only experience I have of Sonos. If I buy used Connect Gen2s, will there be any non-obvious gotchyas around adding them to my sonos account or their usage, or do I simply reset them and they will behave as you’d expect with new gear?
Hi folks!I currently have a single Sonos One Gen2. It is in another group than my Playbar, Sub and Play 3’s.I use it for radio listening and my deezer playlists. And to set timers (super usefull).To add volume and quality of the sound should I:add another one to the opposite corner of the room? move the one gen2 to another room and replace it with a single era 100? move the one gen2 to another room and replace it with a single era 300? move the one gen2 to another room and replace it with Sonos move gen 2?thank youNeven
Hi,I’m not sure which products to choose when upgrading. Pls help :) My current setup is listed below, I’m currently using the S1 app.Amplifier: Connect AMP Main speakers: B&W 606 Subwoofer: B&W ASW608 Extra speakers: Play 1 (2 pcs) Sonos BridgeI would like to switch out the old Connect AMP with the new Amp in order to get my TV connected to the setup…. questions:Will I be able to keep my Main speakers and Subwoofer? Will I need to switch out the Play 1 speakers (dont think they work with the S2 app)? Will I still need my Sonos Bridge, or does it have to be replaced?

Hello!I'm planning on getting a Sonos Arc, but I think it might be too expensive for me. Does anyone have any recommendations for cheaper alternatives to the Sonos Arc?I'm looking for a quality home theater sound system that has similar specs to the Sonos Arc. I also want the system to be compatible with other Sonos products.Thank you for your help!
Hi all,I’m new to this forum. My name is Mark, and I need some advice on the setup with a high ceiling. I was looking to buy Arc or Beam, but not sure if Dolby Atmos would work in this setup. The top of the ceiling in the middle is 4m.Soundbar preferred as I want to minimise cables, but open to other configurations if the ceiling is an issue. Assume windows would be closed while watching TV, and the view here is from the wall closing the room.Any suggestions on the recommended setup would be much appreciated.Cheers,Mark
hello everyone,I am looking for help to setup my turn table.Currently, my Sonos setup is mainly for Home Theatre. It is a 5.1 setup comprised with Arc, Sub, Amp driving the 2 passive rear ceiling speakers.I have an old Pro-Ject turn table with a Pro-Ject pre-amp that I would like to incorporate in the Sonos ecosystem.Since my Amp is already setup to the 2 passive rears, I cannot use it for the turn table. So I think I need to look for a Sonos speaker that has line-in capability to drive the turn table with its build-in amp and allows me to include the turn table to my Sonos setup. Am I thinking this right?Prefer result would be a Sonos product compatible to the S2 app and allows the turn table to play across all my Sonos products.Thank you for any advice.Eric
