Hi there, I am new to Sonos. One of my setup is a stereo paired Play3 with Sub. Appreciate any feedbacks/views on a stereo paired Play3 orientation. 1. Is there any difference between horizontal or vertical? 2. For a vertical orientation, any difference if both speakers are placed with the Sonos logo inwards or outwards? Many thanks!
So my home system is currently set up with a wireless router downstairs and a sound system upstairs. My sound system is basically a Yamaha amplifier with various speakers and other audio visual equipment connected to it as well as a laptop with all my Itunes music on it. I can access my itunes music library on my laptop through my smartphone or ipad (via wi-fi) from anywhere around the house and also control the volume through this however to enjoy music downstairs or in the bedrooms I have to put up the volume in the living room considerably and still not giving the desired effect therefore I ask: Would it be possible to link a SONOS speaker to this type of system so that I can transmit music either directly from my amp to the wireless speakers so that wherever I place the speaker around the house it will play the same music that is playing on my sound system without me needing to raise the volume too high in the living room? Alternatively would it be possible to l
Hi everyone I raised this with Sonos directly a while back, and it was suggested I post it here for feedback. I wondered if it would be possible to set up an alert for favourited radio shows on Tunein radio. That way I wouldn't have to miss the start of the Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show thanks to my terrible memory, as the Sonos app would remind me that it was due to start in a few minutes! Would this be of any use to anyone else, and is there any way to suggest it as a future feature? Cheers Adam
First post. I very recently purchased a Play3 unit I was weighing up the pro's and con's of a Play3 vs a Play5. Play3 had the looks, price and size going for it. Play5 had the superior sound and line in socket in its favour. This latter feature, the line in socket, was a particular issue for me as without it I think my CD collection will go the same way as my vinyl collection went, stored and then got rid of if I do not keep playing them. My eventual buying decision was to go for the less expensive Play3 and park the CD issue. If I am happy with Play3 I may well purchase the Play5 at a future date. My feedback to SONOS is - with the switch to streaming there will be many like me who have 100's if not 1000's of CD's and even if they are all available on services like Spotify, they will still want to keep their cherished CD collection and be able to play them. Surely installing a 3.5mm line in socket in the Play3 and Play1 is not such a big ask and would be seen as a generous
Does anyone have a ZP90 hooked up to the aux input on a bose sound dock II? If yes, does it automatically power on when u hit play on the sonos? And does the volume change with the sonos remote or would the bose be controlling that? I recently purchased a sonos bundle and I am very pleased with it. I just want to be able to have an easy setup in the spare bedroom when guests stay. I like the idea of having a system in there where they can charge their ipod/iphone, play music off their own unit or choose to play from my catalog. Does anyone have a setup like this? I dont really want to go for a multi-speaker setup in here, there are many reasons which i won't go into. I like the idea of a ZP90 feeding an all in one unit like the sound dock. But have the auto power on and have sonos control the volume. Am I asking too much? Thanks. Thanks.
Does anyone have comment on using a Play:1 as a bedside speaker? I've had a few clock radios with screens that are too bright or volume that can't be adjusted to a level suitable for nodding off. The Play:1 would seem to fit the bill, with the sleep and alarm functions. I have seen some previous posts about the challenge of adjusting volume at low levels. I already enjoy my two Play:5s and a Playbar... and am wondering if a Play:1 would work well next to my bed. Thank in advance, Dave
I just replaced my ASUS router with an Eero mesh network. On the "base" Eero, I plugged in a switch that is used to enable my in-wall ethernet network. I have another switch in a different room where I have other devices hardwired to my network. On that switch is a BOOST. That's the only Sonos product hardwired to my network. When I enabled the Eero mesh network, the Sonos network went dark. I power cycled that switch and the BOOST was able to be added to the iOS controller. I was resigned to adding all my zones one by one again. Unfortunately, they're not wanting to be added. Literally the only physical change to my network was the Eero router(s). I did not change the network configuration at all (i.e. same SSID, etc.). Anyone know what might be happening?
I really hope one day Sonos will add YouTube for audio only as an added service. But the issue that I am having is by using my Line-In I get periodic cut outs / silence when music is playing. I have switched speakers for the line-in with the same results. I have also switched the channel to all three but again the same results. I have also tried using a PC, Tablet and Phone with the same issues. Does anyone have any thoughts or similar issues using the Line-In and cut outs?
Hello, I have a playbar/sub/play 1's connected to my main home theater and it's awesome. Now I'm looking to add a single Play 5 to a bedroom TV. The TV has 3 types out outputs (3.5mm, optical & RCA). I connected the Play 5 via the 3.5mm and the quality is horrible (I increased the line in level via the app as well). My question is, would converting the optical or RCA outputs to 3.5mm yield better results? Anyone faced this before by chance? Thanks for any help.
This topic has been in the "question" section for a year, and recently been marked as "answered", without actually being answered! So here we go again. Please incorporate a way of creating groups that consist of speakers across different rooms, which are permanent. A kind of favourite groupings. E.g. In the morning I want to use one group of speakers (all of them) to listen to the radio, as everybody in the house is awake. In the evening I want some rooms excluded, because our son is sleeping. When we have friends for dinner, I have another constellation I would like to use. BUT!!! I don't want to have to go through grouping and ungrouping every time. I would like to have easily selectable predetermined (setup by the user) groups of several rooms, where I can save certain volume settings for each group and have these synced as well (instead of having to do this each and every time as well) and am able to use the volume buttons on any of the groups speaker to change the volume si
