I’m hoping to use 4 Sonos ceiling speakers (2 front, 2 rear) with one Sonos amp for tv viewing in a 21’ w x 18’ d room.I know many folks normally don’t recommend only using ceiling speakers for tv viewing because it’s odd to have sound coming from a different direction than to tv, but does trueplay and the virtual center channel in a larger room eliminate that problem?
Did Sonos just increase price across its product line on June 22, 2023 without any notice? I was looking at Play 5s and Outdoor Speakers and while still researching they both went up by $50 each from one day to the next. What’s going on, it’s the same product and no a newer release so why the price increase.
Hi, I am having a kitchen refurb done in a couple of months and I'm thinking ahead about a sound system. Sonos seems like a good solution, but I have no sonos products and could do with some advice please on what to get. The space is fairly large and open plan - see pic. What I am looking to establish is:-What type of speakers? Should I consider ceiling speakers? How many? Where would they be positioned? Do I need an amp?Some random info:-Stereo or Surround - I'm not into home cinema and so I reckon a stereo system will do unless surround sound will offer some advantages in filling the space? That said, will it be possible to even create a stereo field in a room of this shape? Perhaps surround is the best option? The system will need to be good enough to support a party so fairly loud! I like house, techno, D&B, bass, chillout, and ambient. Mainly electronic. Maybe ceiling speakers would help, but I thought (maybe incorrectly) that I'd need 6 of these and got very confused wh
Hi allI am seriously considering buying the Arc, sub gen3 and 2 era3 speakers for a dolby atmos system. The only think keeping me from pushing the buy button is the price. At over £2500 it's not cheap. Has anyone on here bought these to make a atmos system, if so is it worth the outlay. Many thanks
One my friend is travelling from Houston to Pakistan and he is willing to bring Sonos era 300 stands pair, colour white. which i will purchase online and deliver to his address in US, the only problem i will face will be if my order is pushed back. His flight is on 29th of July. Can one confirm the status on Sonos era 300 stands pair in white colour?

Bonjour,Pour allonger la durée de vie de la batterie du SONOS Move, est-ce une bonne idée de le brancher sur une prise connectée qui ne le charge que 6 heures par jour? Ou 6 heures tous les deux jours? Sachant que je ne m’en sers hors de sa base qu’une heure par jour environ.
I am wondering which products I should upgrade and in what order since I cannot upgrade everything at once. I’d rather do it gradually. My current system has 3 Play:1 devices, 1 Connect, 1 Play:3, and 1 Playbar. I use a sonos connect with a turntable. It’s not completely reliable anymore especially if it is used with a device that is farther away in the house. One of the Play:1 devices is connected to my router. I’d rather not have to do that if it was possible.
Thinking of replacing my old stereo setup that sits next to my tv. The TV is a Vizio that does not have a soundbar. Don’t really need surround sound because we really don’t watch those type of shows. It would be nice to have a better speaker setup for the tv to help clarify sound (announcers during football for example). I would also like to replace the stereo because I am digitizing my vinyl to load onto iTunes.I have a One SL that I’m using in the kitchen and am setting up our various music services and my own iTunes library. Now, I want to set up the living room.So, would it be better to have a Beam with maybe a sub mini or go with two One SL’s (or Era 100’s, although I don’t need the voice control) and a sub mini. I realize that I give up connecting the tv if I don’t do the soundbar. However, am I giving up the music sound quality if I do go with Beam over two speakers and a sub.Finally, the Five is a wonderful sounding speaker, but I think it is overkill in my 13x19 living room. I
I understand the first play5 is Sonos S1 compatible only. My question is how do you compare its sound quality (speaker power) to some of the newer speakers. Is it equal to a Sonos Era 100? Sonos Move? Sonos beam Gen 1? I’m assuming it sounds better than the play 1 & play 3 but not as good as the newer Sonos 5. Curious on what people's thoughts are. Considering getting one or two for my work office space and using it there away from my home. Thanks!
Hello! I moved into a new house that has passive speakers already installed: front left/right, back left/right. I’m trying to determine how I could use them with my existing Beam. From my research it seems like my options might beBuy a Sonos Amp for passive speakers and set up passive speakers as surround for Beam (I think only 2 passive speakers can be used because Beam is already a 2.1 device?) Buy a receiver and Sonos Port for passive speakers (I’m not sure if this would allow for surround sound with Beam?) Don’t use passive speakers and just use Beam.Thanks for any advice!
Hello all I moved into a house that has speakers in the ceiling in most of the rooms (about 7 rooms?) - there is a CD player and DAB hooked up but I can’t see an amp. The below is what’s there.If I replaced the CD or DAB with a Sonos Port, would that work?I understand that each room can’t be isolated with one product but I should be able to say set all downstairs speakers to the Port input.Any help appreciated.
HiFor playing music in a large kitchen diner (parties and high-quality listening) I’m considering buying a FIVE to sit on a shelf central on the long wall, then put a ONE SL and a ONE at the extreme sides of the room to create a wider sound field in the room (without the expense of 2x FIVES). (Note: I thought a ONE would be useful as it will have a mic for smart speaker purposes).Question: Can I set the ONE and ONE SL as a stereo pair, and have the FIVE playing in stereo to get this wide sound field?Would this work?
Currently use Sonos in rooms where I can easily access them.Am looking to mount new speakers about 8ft up in close to ceiling for a sunroom. Although I can always get a ladder if there was an issue, ideally am looking to have these mounted and connected to power and then remote control them from Sonos App/remotely.Thoughts? Recommendations? 2x Era 100 or 300 better than a single sound bar?Thanks in advance
Good morning, I have a beam gen 1 with mini sub and two symfonisk ikea etagere in surround. I would like to exchange the beam gen1 for a sonos beam gen2 or arc to enjoy dolby atmos and truehd, is there much difference on the sound quality between dolby digital 5.1 and dolby digital plus, dolby digital true HD and atmos please? my config 55 inch tv Living room 30m² length 14 meters width 4 meter sofa distance from tv about 3 meters
Just purchased the arc for infront of our TV that is in a high ceiling living room. I want something behind the couch; however the open floor plan/kitchen will limit me to ERA 100s. There are however two inwall old speakers above the couch and I just saw the amp and inwall set up. Can I combine the amp and arc? Will that give a good surround sound? plan for the subwoofer down the line at some point as well.
