I have not received my replacement Sonos speaker and Sonos will take no responsibility as they say it was dispatched by them via UPS. It was scheduled for delivery on 30th September according to the tracking but UPS can’t tell me where it is. I have 11 products from Sonos but I cannot run the risk of purchasing anymore because Sonos take the money upfront and if the product doesn’t arrive, the customer has to stand the loss. Shame on Patrick Spencer, CEO for allowing this malpractice.
My main system is in my living room and is not a multi room system and I now want a multi room system for 3 rooms in the rest of the house. I am thinking of buying three One SL’s but need to understand if they will do all I want. I have a subscription to Qobuz and a sizeable collection of flac tracks on my PC and want to be able to access these. I also want to be able to play podcasts from my IPad and also listen to radio stations. I want to create playlists which can be accessed by any speaker I want to be able to play something different through each speaker at the same time. Will 3 One SL’s be able to do this or will I need to buy a Port as well
Hello all, So I’m looking into installing a sound system in some areas of my house, and I was looking into SONOS because I was told they’re simple to install, and they all connect to each other. So my question is, what would I need to install the following in my house and get it all working together: Living Room = 4 Ceiling speakers.Kitchen = 2 Ceiling Speakers.Outside area = 2 Speakers. That’s it, and I’m guessing a Sub for the Living Room area? Could anyone help me on what I would need apart from the speakers and the sub? How many Amps and anything else to connect them all together or individual zones? Thank you.
Hey everybody,As a music & home theater set-up: I currently have the Sonos Amp + 2x Boston Acoustic VR2 floor-standing speakers.I also have 2x Sonos Fives as the Surrounds, and 2x Sonos Subs connected. It’s an awesome set-up as is! I started with the Arc (instead of the Amp) + 2x Fives + 2x Subs and loved the sound quality, but needed more ‘oomf’ and energy from the front of the room since I’m used to a traditional 5.1 set-up with floor-standing speakers. Now that I’ve transitioned to the Amp, I love the volume; but I’m missing that high fidelity sound, immersive effect, and subtlety in instruments the Arc had (when coupled with the Fives and Subs). My primary use case is music and the Amp shines with music. The Arc did too, though it had to be turned up considerably to feel that energy. But it was great when turned up because you could hear every individual instrument around the room. Feel like I should probably upgrade from these old Boston Acoustic VR2’s, and curious if anyone
I’ve tried searching the forum but can’t find a solution.Our Samsung Q75T TV currently feeds our Sonos Beam via the HDMI-ARC socket on the TV. I need to extract the audio from this feed so that I can drive a pair of headphones at the same time as feeding the Beam. The extraction can either be analogue or digital. Is there a gadget that I can insert thus ?Samsung Q75T. > HDMI > gadget > HDMI > BeamTIA
Apologies if this has been asked before but I’m curious as to what people think. I’m thinking of getting a few speakers for the living room. I often sit at the piano and like to play along to what I’m listening to so I need a setup that won’t be drowned out by my (questionable) playing. My aim is to create a stereo pair and then position them each side of the piano. The conundrum I have is whether to go for 2 Ones and a Sub, which I assume (hope) will give me better separation of highs from lows OR 2 Fives without a separate Sub. I listen to a really wide variety of music including classical and Jazz so the mids and trebles are just as important to me as the thumbing bass. Thoughts?
Hi, I am considering to make the move over to a wireless sound eco system. To start of: a HEOS is also still in the race, altough I lean towards Sonos for esthetic point of view: so pretty! Our house is not to big, but i would like to get as close as possible to an "immersive sound experience" wich means (for me): more or less the same sound experience all across the room. Sound quality is more important than maximum volume (but I would like to have some punch in the setup when having a small party/get together). Detail and well balanced sound is most important. I'm not really interested in the smart features with voice control etc. For TV sound there would probably also be a beam involved. See drawings below for the setup... Now the questio, what is the best way to go, and why? Or are there even better setups (without adding to the budget) In the upper half, across from the beam, is the couch. In the middel area on the left is kitchen, and the lower half is the dining area. Als
Hi all, I'm new so go gentle! I was given a play:3 as a present for xmas. Loved the sound so much today I bought a sub and another play:3 both arrive tomorrow. My plan is to use it for mostly music but I would love to be able to use the set up through my Sony Bravia tv. Is there anyway I can connect it or am I going to be disappointed? I've read people saying that only a 5 has the input etc so I'm fully aware. I just hoped I could use it for watching tv also. Thanks in advance! Samzie
Quite a simple really. I currently own two play:1 set as a stereo pair at one end of my open plan rectangle living room dining room (facing into the room from the dinning room end wall but clearly audible from the living room). They really are great speakers for the size and I am now looking into my next sonos purchase. These are the options I am considering; 1/ Add a sub to my current setup. 2/ Buy a play:5 to replace my current setup (which would then be distributed between the kitchen and bathroom) which would also allow me to add a record player in the future but loose out on the stereo separation I now enjoy. 3/ Buy a play:1 for the kitchen and for the bathroom. I had thought about the soundbar but I am a little put off by what I have read about DTS and TV pass-through issues. So tell me, what would you do?
Hi i have three old connect amps - one connected to in-ceiling speakers in the kitchen, one connected to in-ceiling speakers in the dining room and the third connected to outdoor speakers on my back deck. I am thinking that the best solution for the indoor zones is just to replace the connect amps and speakers with a couple of Ones or OneSLs. It doesn’t seem to me that I would be missing anything that I currently have, except that I would need to keep the speakers somewhere they could be plugged into power outlets. Does this sound correct? my bigger question is with the outdoor speakers. Ideally I would like to keep the speakers I have. I am not sure if I need the port or the Amp to do this. Can anyone advise? thanks
Having surrendered my music room I've just got into Sonos; I started with just the Sonos One until I read on this forum that a pair would give a half-decent stereo performance so I bought another One and paired them up. Still sounded a bit ' thin' to be honest so I went into Richer Sounds ( who were really good to deal with by the way) and after hearing a demo, bought the Sub to add a layer of depth. I am really impressed with the set-up now, it sounds very rich considering the size of the Ones. I didn't purchase the Sub for out-and- out loudness ( don't like loud music tbh) , the Sub does add a subtle depth to the presentation so I'm very happy. The million dollar question is whether, as funds permit, I move the Ones into other rooms around the house and replace them in the living room with a pair of 5's..........
Had one of my SYMFONISK lamps die, Sonos rouble shot over the phone and recommended replacement. So mailed it back to family in the states to return and they were told at the Tampa Ikea that the SYMFONISK lamp was discountinued. they had no more there and couldn’t order it from the store to ship to my families house anymore. Anyone else heard of this? I was able to order one online and had it shipped ot my familys place still. The ikea employee said he thinks its because of issues with them? I have another that is perfectly fine. Hope this new one is not a dud too!
In 2020, Pandemic or not… How can the absolute best Home Theater System Company, have a 1970’s system, when it comes to recognizing a gift card? Apparently if an item is back ordered, one cannot use a gift card during check-out? It’s surreal...Have over 3k invested in Sonos and the Envy of the only friends, that I haven’t converted yet, to SONOS. My better half gave me a gift card on our anniversary, yet I can’t even use it on the SONOS website? How is this possible?
Hey, I got turned on to Sonos a few years back when I went to a couple of parties and they simply ended up being a Sonos party; you know the ones where you take turns in putting a single song and your life thereafter is judged by everyone on the single song you chose! (I still claim that Starship are an awesome group!) Currently I have a single Play 1 (no idea on what generation) which sits in the dining room and will either play there at parties in the winter or will get moved into the garden (though range is an issue) in the summer. Whilst it is suitable for the smaller rooms I do want to build on it. I also have an older (and at the time expensive) separates AV/HiFI home cinema setup that I do not really use. The general idea was to purchase a Play 3 for the dining/garden rooms (ie for the parties) and another Play 1 and a sub for a 2 x play 1 + Sub. Eventually I would move to a sound bar and then move the play 1's into separate rooms. So my questions are: 1. Will
I'm not a current SONOS customer, so I'm trying to get the answer to the following: I understand that the SONOS Connect is used to feed SONOS audio sources to an existing amplifier/receiver system. What options are there, however, to make available the output from an existing amplifier/receiver to a SONOS network? The scenario is as follows: Imagine I have a (legacy) amplifier/receiver hooked up to a reel-to-reel player, tape deck, turntable, CD player, radio... What options are there to pass through all these sources to a SONOS network using the SONOS Connect through my amplifier/receiver? The way I understand it, the SONOS Connect is currently only able to accommodate one source at a time via the analog Line-In connectors. However, I don't want to have to switch connections every time I want to play music from a different source. Can I connect my amplifier to the SONOS Connect to be able to play all sources connected to the amplifier and can I, likewise, use the SONOS Connect t
Greetings - Newbie here, OK So I am not really looking for surround sound for TV (Which I think most posts tend to be about). I am fine with TC sound... But my old Denon Receiver does not have Bluetooth and has an old ipod dock that is not working.. and well its time to upgrade. I do have 2 Klipsch Ikon series speakers... but anyway looking for better sound then a $12 portable speaker. So need to outfit my bedroom (currently have Alexa - 1 tiny speaker) and my kitchen/great room. So my home has 1 large area for kitchen/dining room/ living room. 17 foot wood ceilings (And a loft upstairs). The living room /kitchen / great room is about 28 feet long by 22 feet wide (616 Square feet( and my master bedroom is about 15 by 16 (Plus a hallway leading to bathroom) so 240 sq feet+. So what do you recommend to play music off my iPhone or Alexa? Radio etc... Right now I have Amazon music and pandora - but that could change. So looking to enjoy music in great room and then in my bedroom
Hi all, I want to buy some new floor standing (preferably white) speakers to use on my connect amp. They’ll be in the front room and mainly used for TV and music. I have been using a pair of tannoys that I purchased about 20 years ago so am in major need of an upgrade and wondered what experience and recommendation people may have. Price wise I don’t really want to go over £1k for the pair. Many thanks
Have a room a little bit larger than 25x25, say 700+ sq ft and 8’ ceilings. In one quadrant I’ll be purchasing a Playbase for the TV. I set a $600 budget to spend for supporting Sonos speakers so that we can use the room for occasional parties and thus party music with some bass. Assuming the Playbase handles the bass, this budget surrounded itself cause it’s about what it would take to purchase these options: 1 Play 5 2 Play 3’s 4 Play 1’s Thanks ahead of time for your input.
