Hi folks, I have a pal who has the same system as me...2 Play 5 Gen2’s and the Sub.He is about to embark on fairly regular business trips(lasting about a week each time).I am asking this in his name…...Since he feels more comfortable not having his system plugged in while he’s away,can he “safely” shut it off(pulling the plugs,obviously) for say a week at a time and then safely re-plug everything in.Basically,if the system has been in a plugged in mode,with all components on for a while,does turning it off occasionally have a negative side effect,is his concern.I myself don’t know either.Greatly appreciate “thoughtful” feedback.Much thanks
I have a 23x26 garage. The left side is used as a home gym while the right side is used to park a car. I have a Sonos Play 5 (2nd gen) on a table in the center of the far wall (wall that runs parallel to the garage door) which is angled to point at the left side. I was thinking about getting another 2nd gen Play 5 to put next to my current Play 5 to create a stereo pair. I was wondering how much better the stereo pair would sound vs a lone Play 5?

Hi There,Could someone help me with my Sonos Move i recently purchased. My whole sytem is now running on the S2 controller, and the newly added Sonos Move was successfully added to the Wifi network. But i have 3 different Wifi networks around the house, as i do not have coverage from one network on its own. Therefore when i move out of rang of the network that the Move is configured to, it becomes unavailable on the App. I need to configure the Move with the 2 additional Wifi networks, so it can maintain connectivity whilst being moved around the house. How can i do this??
Has anyone connected their Sonos system to a model railroad? I have a a bunch of MTH and Lionel train engines that have a many sound effects. Was thinking it would be awesome if there was a way to connect the trains to my Sonos system. The trains are connected to wifi and bluetooth so I’m sure there is a way. Just curious if anyone has tried this. These are $500 -$1000 dollar train engines each with excellent speakers in them but would be cool to get full surround sound with my subs etc. for whole model layout.
Hi guys. I have a Play:5 (gen2) pair + Sub (Gen2) and I am just acquiring a sonos arc for my TV. I use my system both as Home theater and music system with a turntable plugged into one of the Play:5. I am planning to use the arc below the TV + my sub close to the TV and to put the pair of PLay:5 behind the sofa as an stereo pair for optimum souround sound, but I would like to ask you guys a doubt. Do you think that getting myself a wall mount for the Play:5 pair would really undermine their performance? It’s easier to mount them on the walls in my living room rather than putting them on a floor stand, but I am a bit scared because I've read some reviews saying that their performance drops quite a bit, mainly when speaking of their bass… (as I have a SUB and the arc, I don’t know if that would really be an issue...).What do you guys think? Would you encourage me to buy the wall mounts? Or would you rather recommend me to try to solve my space problem (it’s not easy) and to get some wall
Hi Sonos It is happing again :-[ (3rd time)I’ve got audio dropout in the morning. And it is happening at the same time and same situration as last time. Around 7 o’ clock it all begins. Last time we you magically fixed it over the web And everything was working fine. (you have already fixed it 2 times. So I guess it is time for the 3.) System setup is the same. no new stuff so I don’t understand why the dropout suddenly comes back. Please please help :-) Kind regardsP Message from last time: (26/3-2020)Hi Sonos people :-)I am having some trouble with my Sonos equipment.I have an alarm set that starts to play everyday at 6:30 and play 2 hours. In the beginning there was no trouble. And now it automatically turn off the music at around 6:45-6:50 everyday. I have tried to redo an alarm setup. I have tried to update system. And even tried to do 6:15 instead 6:30. But no matter what it still do the same stuff everyday.
I don’t know if it’s just me but I’m fed up with updating most times I want to listen to a song, I have to update/ log In/ do some *** which stops me from just listening to a tune, I’ve spent a fair amount of cash on Sonos as I love how it sounds, however, if you could just make it so it just works until I decide to update, etc, it would be ace, say I get home from a do/night out, I don’t want to have to log in, update, subscribe, whatever… I just want to put some tunes on. Why oh why shouldn’t this be easy, please oh please focus on the music, not the politics of the Sonos brand, that’s why I love ya, not the feedback generation. *Moderator Note: Modified in accordance with the community guidelines.*
I have several Sonos products and I love them all. My wife and I own 5 Play 1’s and a Sonos Beam are considering buying even more speakers soon. However, I was repositioning one of our play 1 speakers when I slipped and dropped it on the hard floor. There is some cosmetic damage which is my fault and I could live with, but when I plugged it in to check the sound, to my dismay, all low frequencies sound scratchy and flabby.Is there any Sonos repair program? I still have to check our purchase date, but I’m fairly sure we’ve passed the 1 year warranty date. I would certainly rather repair a speaker than buy a whole brand new one. If you could get back to me with some options that Sonos offers and prices that would be great. Hope to hear some good news!
I can’t believe Sonos play 5 gen 2 doesn’t have wireless connectivity with a tv. I have a Bose unit from 6 years ago that connects perfectly. Sonos mention you need a hardwired 3.5mm headphone cable to join. 10 years ago maybe!!! I have a wall mounted outdoor tv. Cannot connect wirelessly. And, I use YouTube music, which will not stream directly to the unit either. The app with sonos is very limited with YouTube music. I just want to listen to some music through a TV, and easily cast from a direct app (no third party Sonos app). Come on guys, it’s not 2000 anymore. 2 vey basic needs I cannot do.
Hello folks!I just ordered an arc + sub to replace my play base. I live in a 1200 sf apartment on the corner of the building and my living room is to the outside so there are 3 walls between my living room and my neighbor next to me (bedroom wall, 2 closet walls, and bathroom wall) I don’t think the sound from the sub will travel through all that at reasonable volumes but I am worried about disturbing my downstairs neighbor. Would an isolation pad under the sub help? Or would that not really do anything because of the force cancelling drivers in the gen 3 sub? Any apartment dwellers with the sub have any insight?
I have sonos play 1s and and arc plus a sub and the sound is very distorted. im very disappointed as I’ve spent lots on more speak from Sonos I need to Understand what is going wrong with the sound from streamed music on Spotify before I take all the system out and change to another system. I strive for clarity on vocals and bass coming through the speakers this is not happening with Sonos.
Hopefully I am posting in the ocrrect section. I upgraded to the Sonos Arc at launch from the Playbar, I also have the Sub (Gen 2) and two Play 3s (Rear Speakers). I have never got Atmos to work on my current setup, current QLED supports DD+ but no matter what I have tried, the Atmos logo will not show in the app. I have put this down to the TV and will be upgrading to etiher the LG CX or Q90T, I am hoping this will allow for Atmos to work. My questions is, does it matter that I am using Play 3s instead of Ones to acheive Atmos?
Hi, I have a Sonos system ( 2 Speakers Play:3 and their bridge) today I have noticed that the entire system stopped to work and be connected to the home wireless with no changes to the main internet or wireless connection.Can you please help me to address the issue and reconnect the Sonos system to wireless?Thank you Carmine
I bought my speakers in the US and brought them to a holiday home in Spain (using a basic converter). This has worked fine for over a year. Recently there was a huge surge in the building and it blew out several things. For everything else I just replaced the cord and not the appliance. Ex: my charging cable for my laptop blew out but my computer was fine. Unfortunately my Sonos One doesn’t work now even with a new cord. Is there anything that I can do?
