I’m connecting some turntables to my system and I’m wondering whether I use a second hand Connect or whether I actually get a Playbase and use the input on that. With the Playbase at least I get another speaker close to my turntables but I’m unsure about what the quality of input is like compared to the Connect.
Hi guys, I’m new to the sonos ecosystem. I bought 2 Symfonisk speakers (gen 1) and the only way I use them is through my apple TV and Airplay.I wanted to add more speakers, but I am lost here, I dont really know if I can add 2 more Symfonisk and have them as sorround.I wanted to buy a Beam (gen 1) and have it as the main channel and the 2 Symfonisk as rear speakers, but I cannot really understand if the beam gen 1 is capable of being paired with the 2 Symfonisk using airplay.I also entertained the idea of having a Play 5 (gen 1) paired but I don’t think it has airplay capabilities.Can you guys halp me out please?
Hello Community, I need help! I currently have a Sonos playbase which we absolutely love. Our house has 2 X YAMAHA 6" IN-CEILING SPEAKERS PAIR - NS-IC600 in the living room and outdoor alfresco. I want to buy an amp to start using the speakers but have no idea where to start. Do I need to buy a Sonos amp to connect the playbase and will the Yamaha speakers be compatible with it. I'm also not sure how I split the audio between the areas... Would you need a seperate amp for each space is there some form of splitter? Any help would be much appreciated!
Hey there,I am looking at setting up a 2 room Sonos system.I have a turntable in one room (not being used) and an old Nad amp and speakers in another.I would like to be able to send audio from the turntable to either room independently. And also use each room with digital independently. But on my budget this seems hard. Room 1 Turntable- Preamp-FiveRoom 2 Port-Nad-Speakersthis is close but will not be able to send turntable only to room 2 as five will play?Am I missing something or will I have to save more money😭
Hi My friend is considering to buy Sonos speakers for her home - 4-5 speakers in different rooms of her home. She has never owned wireless speakers. She is an Apple user with iphone 13, Macbook, ipad and iwatch - the whole family with Apple music streaming. There are several other streaming serivces like Siriux XM but she does not have Spotify or Youtube PremiumuQuestions:Overall, how does the quality of the Apple Homepod mini sound compare with Sonos speakers? How good is the Siri integration with the Sonos speakers given we use Apple music streaming? (Hey Siri….) Can the Sonos speakers allow you to enable them in 1 room at a time vs all rooms. Can another family member use a different speaker for their use at the same time? Which Sonos speakers would you recommend for someone who wants to set them up for different rooms in a home?Any other suggestions or considerations before making a purchase would be appreciated.
Hello,I am would like to install 2 front in wall speakers and 2 rear ceiling speakers using an amp for each with a Samsung frame TV. I don’t want to use a sound bar because I would like to keep the clean look of the Frame TV. I know very little about setting up a sound system and would just like good basic surround sound. Would this be an effective basic set-up and would it work with a new Samsung Frame TV? Thanks
HI, I am looking to move soon and was going to upgrade my main sonos system in a new audio room to Arc, Sub with 2no rear sonos speakers (ones?) i also love vinyl and would love to know how i can play analogue through this proposed system, currently the turntable plays through a pre amp, then into Yamaha receiver and the Bose wired acoustimass system, sounds great but wanted to go wireless…… any help would be gratefully received, cheers and thanks
I have an older Sonos setup, consisting of three play:3 speakers, a connect: amp and a bridge. I want to upgrade my system so that I can use the Sonos app v. 2 as well as use airplay. I would like advice on whether to buy an Amp that I can use together with my play:3’s or, if it would be a better and longer lasting investment to buy three new Five speakers even though the latter will be quite expensive compared to just buying the Amp.Pros and cons?
On Jul 10th I placed an order on the sonos website for the “Immersive Set with Arc” package and a 2nd subwoofer. Neither appeared backorder and even now on their website they appear in stock. I did get expedited shipping.I did not create an account before the order and I used paypal to checkout.It has now been 5 business days, paypal shows the payment as complete, the money came out of my account instantly and I have 0 communication from sonos about my order. ( Besides my account confirmation email)After the order was confirmed the website asked me to create an account, i did and the order does not show up under that accounts order history.I contacted support via the web chat and apparently they don’t have access to order information?!Do I rally need to call in to get this resolved or is there someone that can look into this for me? 10am-7pm is very inconvenient for me. For a product with such a premium price tag I had hoped for better support.
I recently moved to a new home where the previous owner had one Sonos Connect and 2 independent amps to run music to 4 rooms: living room, kitchen, family room & master bedroom. I am currently using the Connect to direct music to the kitchen ceiling speakers.I own 2 Play 1 and a Play 5.Question- what is the most economical way to expand my use of this equipment short of just forgetting the ceiling speaker installs. Do I need to buy 4 Connects or Sonos Amps? Segregation of the music source is limited by those 2 independent amps which have an A/B System capability. Thanks Gerry
Hi, Im new at SONOS, so Im looking for your advice. Right now, Im bulding a TV room in which I want to have these SONOS products, or at least know if I need them, but anyway I need some advice.I would like to have an Arc Soundbar under my TV, next will be the Sub (Gen 3), also Im looking to get the In-Ceiling Speakers by Sonos and Sonance, all of these for the inside, and for the outside the Outdoor Speakers by Sonos and Sonance.My main question is: do I need just one Amp, or two? Also, will these speakers sound together? Can I just play the inside speakers, and not the outsides, or the other way, just outside and not inside?
Sonsos. What is going on with shipping??? I just cancelled a $1,500 order because no one can give me a straight answer on what is going on. Just “waiting and supply chain” noise. I mean this is what, 3 years in, and that's still your excuse. Nowhere on the order page was any of that mentioned? I feel like you are trying to pull a fast one hoping I will sit for weeks waiting. Can someone please give me a straight answer. I still want the product and have other Sonos products, but this is really spooking me and making me consider changing course.
Having dipped into the forum a bit, this seems to be a recurring issue. I set up a MBG return of a Roam yesterday over the phone. The email confirming the return arrived during the call. It said an email would follow with a pre-paid return label. No such pre-paid return label has arrived. This is irritating because I want to initiate the return, get a refund and then buy a Move instead. On a related point on Sat 14 (it’s now Thurs 19) I did an online trade in of one of my controllers to get the discount for the Roam (now Move) I don’t have a returns label for that yet either. This is more Sonos’s problem than mine (at least for the time being) as they honoured the discount when I bought the Roam. But it is making me think that it could be a while before the returns label for the Roam arrives.If it matters, I’m in the U.K.
Dear Community,I just moved into a new flat and I am looking to buy a new sound / HiFi system for my bedroom.As you can see below, I have a 1-and-a-half bedroom, divided by a semi-wall and a glass door which will remain open the vast majority of the time. I will be spending more time in the “big room” that the picture is taken from - but also a good chunk of time each day in the smaller room that you can see after walking through the door in the picture.What SONOS do you recommend? I was thinking to buy the SONOS Five and have it in the big bedroom - but do you think that the sound will be bad when the music is playing from the big bedroom and I'll be in the other, smaller room?What do you think of getting a SONOS Five and a SONOS Move or ONE to play simultaneously, one in each room? Or will that sound strange if I can partially hear both at the same time?I look forward to your advice. We are now standing in the “big” main bedroom, looking through to the smaller room which contains a
Hi,I’m looking to purchase a Sonos system today, basically I’m trying to achieve the following but don’t know where to start, I’m a bit confused by all the different products available.Live in a fairly large size home (6,000 sq ft), entire home has good wi-fi and most rooms have ethernet sockets.I have a Synology DS2314+ NAS that I store my music on, which the Sonos would need to access.If I wanted standard speakers in around 8 rooms, to all play at same time same music, what would the best options be for me please?Also, can speakers be configured independently, for instance, in our kids 3 rooms, can the 3 speakers there be playing something different, whilst the other 5 speakers downstairs are linked to each other?Cost not a problem, as I’ve budgeted for this and will be used for many years.Thanks!
Hello,I’m moving in to a new place in a new country so I’m having a fresh start device-wise.Only thing I own for the moment is an Apple TV 4K. I don’t want to buy a TV so I will buy/use a 4K projector to watch movies. When I listen to music, I’m using Apple Music from my iPhone and I also have a record collection that is following me. I plan on buying a record player with a built-in pre-amp (https://www.denon.com/en-us/product/turntables/dp-300f)I thought about buying two Sonos Five in stereo for the living room, one being connected to the record player through line. A Sonos One for the bedroom. And a Sonos Move that I could move between the Balcony/Kitchen. Maybe I’ll add a sub-woofer in the living room as well.Would this work? Would everything be connected together?However, I don’t think I’ll be able to leverage Dolby Atmos from Apple Music/ Apple TV with this set-up.From my understanding, I would need an eARC cable going from my projector to a Sonos Arc/Bean right to enjoy Dolby Atm
I’m building an outdoor pavilion with a roof and walls on 3 sides (back and 2 sides), with the front side open. I’m mounting a TV on back wall, and want to purchase Sonos speakers to connect to the TV to use for TV sound in addition to music. Given the covered set-up, would the Arc or Beam be suitable for use? I couldn’t find details like IP rating on products except the Move and Roam. The set-up would be protected from direct water / rain and sun, but it does often get foggy overnight, which would likely wander into the space. Temperatures rarely get below freezing and sometimes get to 100 in the summer, but given the shade under the roof, it likely wouldn’t get that hot.Alternatively, if the Arc or Beam wouldn’t be suitable, can you connect the Amp to the TV and use the Sonance outdoor speakers sound from the TV in addition to music?
