Just wondering, for a very small footprint system, how these would compare. The Vanatoo T1's get amazing reviews, and are self-powered like the Play:1's. A bit more at $500/pair plus the Connect, vs $400 for a pair of Play:1's. Perhaps a pair of Play:3's would be a more fair comparison? From what I've read, a pair of Play:1's will outperform a single Play:3 or Play:5 in clarity, and certainly in stereo separation, but somewhat lacking in bass. The Vanatoo's are supposed to be superbly well balanced, with excellent bass for their size. Not quite as clean an installation as a pair of Play:1's, though... Hmmmmmm.... What to do?
I wrote this in "Ask A Question" 2 days ago and I can't find it anywhere. I just bought a second Play:5 to create a stereo pair. I also have a bridge dock which I got with the first Play:5. The stereo pair keeps losing the right (original) speaker at seemingly random times. In my iPod app they are listed as "Living Room (L+?)" when it goes wrong. I have to separate the pair and add the missing speaker as a new component again. The R speaker seems to come and go when it pleases. Its very annoying! Not sure how long I can put up with it.
we have our Play5 hooked up to the TV via the Line-in connection. my daughter is playing an Xbox, but we have our Sonos speakers (the Play5 & 2 paired play3's) playing Music (radio) via a computer, so she has no sound. about every 10 minutes the Sonos system defaults to the Line-in connection?, stopping the music and playing the sound from the TV/Xbox. I did have it so the Play5 was sound from the TV & the paired play3's were playing the music, but again, the Line-in connection defaulted every 10 minutes. stopping the music, and the play3's reverted to TV/Xbox - even without them being grouped to the Play5
Hi all, I've just bought a pair of Sonos Play:1 to join my growing family of Sonos products and I'm moving into a new house so while I'm doing first fix I'd like to look at some neat ways to mount and cable these speakers on the wall. I'd like to avoid seeing cables or plugs, but I dont see any creative solutions out there apart from just taking the standard power cable down through the wall to a remote socket. Hard-wiring into the wall is an option, but by the time you've got a cover plate it's going to look a little unsightly. Anyone got any creative or neat solutions? Thanks, Tom
I have just added the Sonos Playbar to my samsung smart TV and have discovered the lack of DTS functionality through reading this forum. I find it disappointing that the best we can get is a stereo effect through the playbar? My originial search was based on identifying a way of using my existing Onkyo nr509 AV Amp with the playbar however that appears to be a no go option as well. The concept of buying and adding the playbar as a step change to the surround sound system I had has left me feeling I have done the wrong thing? Slightly cheated in a sense too, I hear what Sonos are saying that the majority of content is streamed and agree we use netflix however I also enjoy having a collection of Bluray discs and feel Sonos should fulfil both requirements. If anyone can give us an idea as to when this may be re-considered as it looks like Sonos have closed the subject down from reading through the forums. Do I revert to my old system and return the Playb
I understand Sonos's streaming capabilities are great, but I'm looking for something to distribute sources coming out of my Onkyo TX-NR515. Effectively, I am wondering is, will the Sonos Connect and a Play:3 speaker allow me to broadcast the Onkyo's sources to the Play:3? I know I can go Bridge -> Onkyo, but I (think) I want to go Onkyo -> Connect -> Play:3 and hear whatever I have the Onkyo providing (TV, CD's, etc...). If it can do that, do I also need a Bridge as well, or does the Connect have all the Bridge functionality in it? Thanks in advance
My cat has a habit of turning the sonos on in the middle of the night by stepping on the buttons. A friend has the same problem and solved it by taping the cap from a medicine bottle over the buttons. This is an ugly and inconvenient solution. It would be great if the sonos had a true "off" setting.
I have a play bar connected in my lounge room with TV and multiple sources connected. If I have it set to TV after about 15 minutes of no input to TV it switches to Music. It also seems to default to Music. How can I get it to default to TV. We use the TV 90% of the time in the lounge room and this is frustrating.
Hi New user and looking to add a Playbar, BUT....reading LOTS of unhappiness about "DTS" and compatibility. people talk about Playbar not playing their Blueray/DVDs. Can this be correct? I don't have Blue ray discs, just 100s of ordinary DVDs. Will play bar play the sound on those? Apologies if this is daft question but lots of people seem to be pointing to huge problem thanks for advice Philip
When i play music and after i stop the music i can hear a static noise from my play 1. From the top area of the speaker. It can be heard from like 20cm away from the speaker. It is not very loud and dont increase or decrease, its just there. After a couple of minutes it stops and the speaker is completly silent. I guess the speaker goes into sleep mode or something. I just have a bridge and a play 1. Q: Is this normal? Does all sonos speakers have static noise when you come close?
Hi - Just got my first Play 1 and Bridge last week and am blown away by how good Sonos is. I will undoubtedly be adding to my system soon but wondered in advance whether I would be able to play 2 (or more) different Spotify playlists/tracks on different speakers? I am a Spotify Premium subscriber (if that makes a difference?). Thanks.
I just purchased a single Play:5. I have to turn it about 3/4 of the way up to hear it much at all, and at max volume, it is not nearly what one would expect from a speaker of this quality. I have the volume setting all the way up, plus the bass and treble at max. Nothing seems to help. Is there another setting I'm missing? Thank you.
I have a Play1 on my counter in the master bath and now added and complimented with in ceiling speakers and grouped with a Connect Amp located in the closet. I want to group the volume control on the (easy to reach) Play1 instead of pulling out a smartphone.
When I am listening to Pandora or Songza the song will cut off randomly in the middle and jump to the next track. This has happened with my iTunes library as well, but far less frequently. Biggest problem is Pandora. Diagnostic confirmaton # is 3437289. Thanks for your help.
When I start up a Zone with an alarm, my Play:1 is at a volume that is way beyond comfortable. Since it is linked in a Zone, it seems there is only one master volume for the alarm in this linked group. I know I can change the level after it turns on, but by then the music is already slamming hard on this Play:1 speaker. I am worried that damage will happen to it in the long run. How can I set the alarm volume lower for this particular Play:1 speaker? For this setup. I do NOT have the option to un-link it and the volume level for the other SONOS devices in this group need to stay where they are. Is there a way I could set a MAX volume setting on a particular speaker?
I just put your system throughout my house and love it, but I'm a little disappointed that I can't play my Play 5 in sync with my internal computer speakers on my Mac. Help? I don't want to wire them to each other to make that happen.
