Just some feedback before we return our recently purchased Play3. While the sound from the Play3 is excellent the user experience from the phone app is so poor we cannot justify keeping it. What we expected: The same experience as using our primary streaming apps (spotify and pocket cast) and the audio comes out the sonos speaker. What we got: A substandard, difficult to use user interface which does not have the features we use in the native apps. For instance:- in spotify I search for an artist then can immediately shuffle play all their music. In the sonos app I can search for an artist and can play each album but not all their music shuffled together. In pocket cast I want a list of my unplayed podcasts. Then I want the ones I listen to on the sonos to update as played or update where I have listened up to in pocket casts. Without those features the sonos is useless to us. After more research it seems we should have purchased a chromecast audio with a speaker.
I spent three to four hours on the phone with SONOS trying to solve this to no avail, but managed to finally solve it myself. The symptom: All speakers play SiriusXM simultaneously just fine (I have seven rooms with a 5.1 setup, 2.1 setup, playbar and sub, play 5, and the rest are a single play 1), but if I use Spotify, Tidal, Amazon Music, etc the speakers in different rooms would cut out and come back at random. Even different components in the same room, for instance a rear speaker or sub might drop in my 5.1 room then come back, or a L/R speaker in a stereo set. If I kept the groupings to a minimum, for instance two rooms, things seemed to work okay. Once I got above that, things would go to hell. Also, this is a two story 1400 sqft townhome with a brand new top-of-the-line $400 Netgear router with gigabit internet. I get about 800mbps on my iPhone as far away from the router as I can get in the house. Before this, I was in a one-story 900sqft place and was only using speakers i
I have a large shop (40X60X20 feet) with a concrete floor, metal siding and roof and open rafters. I have two Play:5s and would like a little more sound and voice control. The Play:5s are installed in a stereo pair at the base of the rafters to keep them out of harm's way. Could I add two Sonos Ones under them, where they can be reached for volume control, and pair them matching the left and right pairing of the Play:5s that would be directly above? My thought is this will give voice control, add a little more sound and Trueplay would take care of making them play nice together. Any input is appreciated...
I added to Play 1's recently, and the app is saying "some of your speakers aren't registered to your Sonos account". I'm now stuck on this screen and can't do anything. Problem is, when I look at my products, I see they are clearly registered. Any ideas? Note: I've tried to "register" from an Ipad, Iphone, and even the windows sonos player.
TV HDMI port is HDMI IN including HDMI ARC.Sonos Beam is connected to TV via HDMI ARC. Does Sonos Beam capable to send video signal to TV via Airplay2 or Google Cast (in future maybe?)? Look at other Soundbar (e.g Samsung N950) which has HDMI In (for blue ray player, game console etc) and HDMI OUT (ARC). Those soundbar is taking video input from external source via HDMI In and send to TV via HDMI ARC. Although Sonos Beam does not has physical HDMI In port, the video input can in implemented in the "streaming" form. What do you all think?
My Beam started playing odd tones that sound like an old NES video game with aliens. They’re very random and happen when the speaker is not in use. I’ve heard them happen a couple times over the last few days. They can range from very loud to tiny murmurs. The best way I can describe them is “blBLLP” It’s like the sound Simon Belmont’s whip makes in Castlevania, or when your plane does a barrel roll in 1942. I currently have a U-Turn Audio (record player) plugged into a Connect (which is connected via ethernet to an Eero router), Beam with two Apple Homepods about 2’ from it on either side, and two Play:1’s across the room in the back. While I’m on this note, the Connect definitely stutters here and there or cuts out completely while listening to vinyl even though I have a blazing fast network and have never had any latency issues with any other software/streaming. I’ve uploaded a diagnostic: 1725640716
Hello I’m wondering if Wi-Fi Direct is something you are working on to implement. It would be great to be able to bring my Sonos One with me without bothering with a router. Is it only a software development for you to implement? You would also be competing with other bluetooth speakers and perhaps sell more units, plus another incentive not to buy a HomePod. Cheers, Johan!
HELP! My sonos won't play ANY streamed music! When trying to connect I get the message "unable to play 'Halsey' - the connection to amazon music was lost" Tried: Rebooting Router Rebooted all 3 play 1 Sonos & 1 Connect Amp Closed and reopened the Sonos app and the amazon music app Deleted and re installed the music app linking it to my sonos app Made sure there were no updates needed in apps Tried Pandora - not working either NOTHING will play!!! Had to resort to my daughters one little bose bluetooth speaker....
This might be a bit of a niche one but I figured it might be worth asking! Basically, we have a couple of Play:3s and a Play:1 in our house. All brilliant except for one thing that I’d love to be able to do but unfortunately doesn’t work - I have a Linux server running with digital satellite tuners (with TVHeadend). There are some satellite radio stations which I’d like to be able to listen to through the Sonos speakers. TVHeadend (the software I use), lets you stream the digital radio stations over your local network in standard HTTP in an “audio only” profile which is like an internet stream as far as media players are concerned, but without transcoding the audio. Radio stations on satellite (and digital terrestrial too here in the UK) are usually in MP2 format, with a couple in AAC. If I add the HTTP streams for the AAC ones, they play perfectly through the Sonos speakers. However, for the MP2 ones, this doesn’t work - it reports an error playing the stream. Presumably beca
I can see all my sonos speakers within the Tidal app on the Fire. However, when I select any of them the music will not play. I have a few TV's that will let you cast to them. Tidal will cast to the TVs with no issues. I just un-installed the Tidal app and re-installed it. Still nothing. So I have Sonos, the Tidal app, and the Fire Tablet. Where is the problem?
I did a little analysis of the Sonos device range and the graph makes it clear that the newer devices, that support Alexa and AirPlay, need a lot more memory/storage (32x more in fact) than the early players. Also makes the reasons behind the 65,000 track limit pretty obvious.[img]2da4bb1d-25fb-4bf6-8168-b4a8604c0f5f.png[/img]
Hi Sonos users! Here a very happy Sonos user (customer). I've been using it for a couple of months. At first I had only one speaker. Because it's expansive enough, I bought at first only one. I listened it one month and because it worked well, I bought another and formed them stereo's pair. All works fine, couple times I've got updates. Our bedroom is not big and Play ONE Stereo pair is completely perfect. I often use a timer that is very useful. It make it quiet so when playlist plays it doen't make it too long when sleeping that woudn't disturbed. We'll basically use Apple Music family package, but also the Radio and my wife loves use via Airplay2 things. We're very pleased. Interesting, how lots of people have it in the bedroom? I think it feels very nice. I just share my good opinion. :cool:
I know this has been mentioned before, but thought I'd chime in as another user who would appreciate a Sonos portable speaker solution. I'll quickly summarize my use case, some workaround/aftermarket solutions, and what a Sonos solution could look like. Use Case - Our medium size house on a small lot has a front yard and porch, back yard and porch, and narrow side yard with garden and shed, all places we spend time either relaxing or working or both. The porches have electricity, but not where I would mount or place a speaker, so adding Sonos speakers there requires a 15'-20' extension cord for a temporary solution or electrical work for a permanent install (which would then be an opportunity for theft). The side yard/garden/shed has no electricity and requires a 50'+ extension cord to get power to. A key point is all of these locations have WiFi coverage from the network my other Sonos speakers are on. Workarounds - I own a number of Bluetooth speakers that I usually use in thes
I don't seem to have a lot of juice to the volume of my speakers at the lower levels...in fact I have to raise the volume rather high at which point it can become to loud. I already have the boost on and sub quite high. (Also, at the higher volume settings, when the player transitions from one song to the next, often the volume increases making it too loud.) What gives and how can I fix/alter/change this? Thanks!
Hi, my living room is a rectangle (25x13 ft) and I have the possibility to place 2 sonos ones in the long side of the rectangle separated by approx. 20 ft. I have read here that the optimal distance is 10-12 ft for a pair of speakers. Is 20 ft too much distance to appreciate the benefits of pairing them? Will I appreciate any difference that worth the extra money against only a single sonos one placed in one corner of the living room? Thanks in advance!
