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 everyone,I'm looking for an upgrade on my sound system. I own a sonos beam 2 for less than a year and im thinking about buying a speaker to have a better home cinema experience. It's almost the same price to buy one Era 300 or 2 Era 100 (500euros). Does anyone have any advice to help me in making a choice between these 2 options? To be more precise, my beam 2 is 4m in front of me in my 20 square meter room, and the couch is located against a wall where i would put the speaker(s) on (on each side if i get 2 speakers and probably centered if i get one) Thanks for any advice that can help. I wish you a good day
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? Should I also get a soundbar?Thanks!!! :D_Michael
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
Newbie here!We are renovating our kitchen/living room and I never had any pre-wiring experience and do not own any Sonos products. So far most of house is automated by Alexa and I would like to keep it that way. Red area marks the couch/viewing space.Potential areas for rack set-upBlue X - Under the stairs closet Green X - Garage I definitely want to pre-wire for a home theater but also want to start the journey of automating the whole house speaker system. Need recommendations on what kind of system I should look at, what the main considerations for a pre-wiring any suggestions on articles, videos? Thanks in advance!
Scenario: Semi-Formal Living room with a Samsung Frame TV. I have a small recessed audio/video box mounted inside the wall behind the Frame TV to contain the One Connect Box. We aren’t terribly concerned about the sound quality of the TV…..won’t be watching many movies here….mostly a football game or something like that. Because of the semi-formal state of this room and the look we are going for, we want to avoid a sound bar…..or at least a visible one. I would, however, like the ability to wirelessly transmit the TV’s audio to other various sonos wireless products inside my house…..i.e. if watching a football game, can blast the auto into other rooms. We have a different (non Frame) samsung tv in our office that has a Beam. We use the audio share feature occasionally and love it. Must: We need the wireless broadcast audio signal that is played throughout the house to be in sync with the Frame TV…..in other words, if I use the office tv to transmit the wireless signal throughout

I have the Sonance SGS 8.1 system (w/SR 2-125 amp) in the pool area and a Sonos Beam Gen2 on my patio TV. Will a Sonos amp give me the ability to group the pool and patio systems together, as well as being able to run them simultaneously from different sources (for example, streaming Spotify on the SGS and watching/listening to the football game on TV)?
We recently bought the arc and 2 era 100’s. Not impressed by the 100’s as surrounds. We currently have them several feet behind the couch but will move them to the sides of the couch. Are the 100’s adequate for surrounds? Would we be better off returning the 100’s for 300’s? Getting a Sub and returning the 100’s, getting a sub and 300’s? Mostly movie watching from an Apple TV 4K via Netflix or other streaming sites or rented Apple movies. No blu ray player connected to this TV. Sony 75 inch 4k model.
