My wife has some hearing problems. We have an Arc and still most of the time she has trouble hearing the dialogue. One of the problems may be that we sit very far away from the tv. I am now considering another Sonos for the table situated next to her. Hopefully something small and out of the way. What would you reccomend? Would this even help the situation?
Hi. The Connect Amp Gen 1 is cheap used by me.I have a good pair of JBL speakers, and several Sonos One and Play. rather than pairing (software, outdated) can I just run and Ethernet cable out of my Sonos One into a Connect Amp Gen 1 Ethernet port? And then the Amp can power the two speakers? thanks!
Hello everybody, I am currently upgrading my TV & Music setup with an ARC, which gives me some headache in regards to the surround limitations that come with the ARC. I hope that you guys can help me with your inputs on the options I have to make things work again.As info, I am by no means “audiophile”, but of course appreciate good sound quality.My setup currently currently consists of:Sonos ARC Sonos AMP connected to 2 3rd party rear speakers (Dali Zensor 3) connected to 3rd party active subwoofer (Dali Sub E-12F / RCA connections) connected to record player As a consequence of the subwoofer port and line-in being disabled, the subwoofer and record player are currently not in the system. However, i would love to find a (preferably cheap) way of including both. My options are:Buy a 2.gen connect / port and plug-inthe subwoofer to the audio-out channel. Would that be possible to get into the same room as the ARC and AMP? Will the sound quality of the sub and the other speakers
Hi, I’m new in the community room. I would like connect all of my “OLD” devices to “NEW” speakers. The reason why I chose the Sonos is the wireless possibilities (no need the audio wire to the rear speakers). Unfortunately Sonos does not the right support, hundreds questions in a community forum are the result.I drew the system I want to have, but I’m in doubt, what Sonos (or other) central unit should I use. Please, can anyone help me and advise the right system setting ? TX a lot.
I've contacted Sonos 3 times. Each one has said it will work. I want to send it out to the community, and hopefully get the same response. If I get the arc, a pair of one sl's. There is my surround sound, correct? But here is the what has to work. If I buy the amp, I can pair it with both the arc and one sl's. Which should make the RCA out live.. correct? I must use my own subs. It's not about how much the house can shake. But how the sound waves and depth, are beyond what any soundbar company currently makes. Thanks for reading.
Hi all!I have researched, and researched without finding any true direction over the past few months. I have a 65 inch TV, and I am looking to get a sound bar, but not sure if the Arc is better than the Beam. I am also looking to set up surround sound, and a subwoofer would be great too. It’s obvious to me the Beam is going to be less pricey, so wondering if I should go that direction despite the size of my TV. I’m new to Sonos, so curious about a couple of things, like how many speakers could I pair with my sound bar? For example, would I be able to pear speakers throughout my apartment to it? Also, what does it look like when changing the volume on a Sonos sound bar? I haven’t had much luck seeing it in use on YouTube, just setup videos. Any help is appreciated here, I’m fairly new to this, but excited to (hopefully) one day watch my TV and listen to music in style. Thanks!
Hi,I wonder if my wished setup is viable. it should look like this: Denon AVR-X4100W receiver with 2 B&W front speakers + SONOS ARC (as a central front speaker) and 2 IKEA Symfonisk as back surround speakers + SONOS subwoofer 3 genI own all of these elements today. What I am trying to do is to use all the best elements I have of 2 currently separate setups. It might feel strange, but it’s part of a “re-use with low cost” approach..I guess you could say that I have a basic starting point with a receiver and 2 “normal non-wifi speakers” and would like to add 4 SONOS components: ARC, subwoofer and 2 Symfonisks. but to secure they will actually work as a 5.1 system Any help would be deeply appreciated
I have a crappy turntable with a preamp connected to a Sonos Port that works fine in streaming vinyl to my Sonos system.It’s functional but sounds terrible and I’d like to upgrade to a good turntable.The one I am looking at does not have a preamp so that means I need a Sonos Amp correct?I guess my question is do I need the Amp AND the Port?Or does the Sonos Amp have the same functionality as the Port, i.e. can stream to my Sonos system, but with a preamp built in?Thanks!
The one thing missing from my Sonos world is the ability to listen to my stuff on headphones. Has anybody got experience of using Port + audiophile headphone amp + headphones? Any recommendations? I listen mostly to music stored on my NAS, not so much streamed. Or would I be better looking for a different (ie non-Sonos) solution, e.g. an audiophile DAC + headphones?
Hello All, I just placed order of two sonos play 5 , although I logged into my account while ordering , but I had wrong email address in the shipping address , I did not receive email with the order number , I also do not see any order under my account . How do I fix this issue ?
Hey guys, I’m m brand new here just got a SONOS Beam Gen 2. First i got the Harman Kardon Multibeam but i was so disappointed with the sound so i decided to give Beam a try and its uncomparable difference (only the pain of setting up the Google assistant which has to work through Assistant app, which is not available in my country, instead of Google home app like every other device), I’m simply loving the sound. Of course my next decision is about the surround sound. I live in an apartment so sub is out of question if I don’t want my neighbors to murder me. I’m now torn between SONOS One Sl or cheaper IKEA Symfonisk… Is the extra 200$ on pair (yeah, in my country is Symfonisk pricy 135$) worth the difference? Or should i go for the more expensive Symfonisk frame? I would love your thoughts because I am just confused. Thanks for the help in advance.
Hi all, I have placed my order for the Beam Gen 2 on 2/7/2022. And it is on back order for 2/18/2022. and today 2/23/2022. it still shows back order and my card has not been charged yet. I have gotten word that it should be shipping tomorrow or Friday for me. If their is one thing I have learned from this experience, I should order future Sonos products from my local retail store going forward.
Is the store website down for anybody else?I’ve tried multiple devices both on wifi and cellularI’m getting the following message when i try to enter the sonos store This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.

Hi all, I’m relatively new to the Sonos-world, but quite hooked on sound and convenience already. I’m now wondering how to expand my system in my kitchen. I have an old set of BeoPlay S3s that have served me well, and that actually perform quite ok. They have dual class D-amps (one per speaker unit) and I believe that they play louder than e.g. Symfonisk or Sonos One. I now wonder whether I should re-use the S3s and get a Sonos Port to connect them to my system - or if I should just replace them with Symfonisk or Sonos One? I did a test against Symfonisk (playing via BT on the S3s), and TBH, the sound seemed more spacious and dynamic on the S3s. Now, the Ones would perform better again, I’m sure - and that would be a more fair comparison. So - are there any Port-users in here who have experience with a setup like this? Would sound quality (via phono-to-mini jack) and connectivity be as good as with native Sonos speakers?Thanks in advance, /Bo
I have a very basic, traditional surround setup in my basement. My Tv is wall mounted with a single HDMI out from the A/V receiver to the TV hidden in the walls so no wires exposed. My gear is all sitting in a cabinet beneath the TV. My back speakers no longer work and I’m unclear if it’s a wiring problem or because my old Denon amplifier is failing. Replacing wires is a non-starter, and if I have to replace the amp I’m thinking maybe I just go wireless. I have lots of Sonos speakers all around my house and they’re great, so I understand how Sonos works but I’m confused about what I would need to buy or if it will even work.Currently, I have 4 components (Cable, Apple TV, Western Digital Media Player, Wii) connected to my home theatre receiver and a universal remote that controls the receiver input to switch the audio and video on the TV. The amplifier is a Pioneer VSX-1019AH. TV is an LG NANO86UNA (55 inch) that supports Dolby ATMOS and eArc. Simple….Question is: how do I replace
Hi,i want to setup:2 speakers in dining room2 speakers in living room 1 2 speakers in living room 22 speakers in kitchen 2 outdoor speakers. How many amps do I need? can I play the same music on all the speakers even if there are multiple amps? if 2 speakers from living room 1 and 2 speakers from living room 2 are connected to the same amp, can I have 2 different zones? So I could play the same music in both living rooms AND play the same music in living room 1 and turn the speakers in living room 2 off - is that makes sense?thanks
I have two Western Digital My Book Live NAS units installed similarly in two locations. As of several months ago, I am no longer able to index the library for both. The error message: “The [drive name] is no longer available.” On one, I deleted the music library hoping I could add it back in, and am unable to do so, displaying the same error message. On the other, I am able to run my FLAC files with no problem, but cannot index. Sonos tech support has not been able to resolve - they are still working on it. The firmware has not changed for the NAS since 2015. I’m running S2 at both locations. Because of this situation, I am looking for current year 2022 recommendations for replacement NAS units in case I have to do so.
Hi all,I was looking at purchasing my first Sonos product with the view of progressing to a home cinema system and multiple speakers throughout my house. I’m probably looking at around £1000 to get started, so wondered what the best option would be. I currently own a Panasonic 49 inch tv which is wall mounted. My sitting room, is 4.60mx 3.60m so relatively small. I was looking at either the Beam + 2x OneSL or just the Arc? I could maybe stretch to the Beam + Sub at a push. I had just wondered if anyone had any recommendations as a startup? Thanks all.
