Hi, I've got my Sonos Move for about a month, quite happy overall, but there are some features I don't understand, and maybe my system is faulty, but the speakers does not capture certain sounds at all, which means that I'm only listening to 3/4 of the total instrumentation. For example, I was listening to the song "FEEL." by Kendrick Llamar. In the intro there are some heavy bass drum kicks and some warped vocals, however the ambient guitar chords in the background is barely captured at all, which ruins the atmosphere of the song for me. My Phone speakers does this better. I have no idea how to bring forward that sound, and it appears in other songs as well, and I'm guessing it's with similar sounds scapes, where the bass and rythm section is overpowering the more subtle ambient background stuff. I've played around with the already limited EQ system, but I've got to compromise on other sounds, which creates other issues.. Would appreciate any tips!
Hi, I have a Sonos setup at work (two Sonos / Ikea lamps) and a Sonos setup at home - couple of Sonos Ones and a Sonos Sub. Everything is running off wifi in both locations.Today I brought my home gear to the office and tried to add it to the Sonos setup there as we have an event, but the products are not found. I have even tried wiring them with a cable, but still not found. My work sonos products uses one email address and my home sonos products another, can this cause an issue when trying to add the products to the work setup? Any other possible reason why we can’t connect them?Thanks Frank
4 years ago I installed a playbase, woofer and 2 alexa-enabled Sonos Ones (1st gen) in my family room. Since in this configuration only one of the two sonos ones will respond to alexa, I think I will relocate one to my study and replace it in the family room with a speaker that is not voice-enabled. I have two questions: 1. what is the best choice of speaker to purchase to substitute the existing sonos one, and 2. Can I configure a single speaker in the study to play mono, or can it only be configured to play either left or right?TIA .... Greg
I have a house with an excellent wifi system, 8 AMP units hooked to ceiling speakers, and everything plays fine and is reliable.I am trying to add 2 SL-One speakers.They won’t join, I go through the procedures but they never show up in the list of rooms after I am done.I take them to the wifi rack, hard wire them in and they join and work. Unplug them from the Ethernet wire, and they still play in the system. Unplug them from power, take them upstairs, and plug them back in and they are gone.
Hello Everyone,We will be installing in a Museum gallery several SONOS 5 speakers. They will be above guests heads on one of the walls of the gallery and will require a secondary safety mechanism in case the mount fails.Usually, we would attach a safety cable between the speaker and the mounting surface, but I have not found a mounting point on the speaker to do this. Short of drilling a hole in the cabinet (which would void the warranty) or using some sort of super adhesive mount that could hold the weight of the speaker (might also void the warranty), I am kind of short on ideas.If anyone has experience with this, I would appreciate any and all suggestions.Thank you.
My Sonos Move previously connected to my Sony mini hifi (CMT-BX90HTR), so I could play CDs on the Sony through the Move. Now it no longer connects, and I can’t get it to re-pair. I have followed the instructions for pairing to the letter - in both the Move manual and the Sony manual. no luck - help!
A software update has meant my play:1 is not connected to my WiFi and needs some love to get going again.Sonos app is trying to achieve this via Bluetooth which is not available on a play:1.this is not just an annoying pop up like the other posts, my product does not work at all while the play:1 remains unconnected to WiFi and neither my or my partners phone can help.
Would love for Sonos to collaborate with someone to develop headphones specifically to be used with the system and connected like a Sonos One speaker. Anything like this in the works? If not, do you recommend a headphone to use for nighttime listening that doesn’t take a technician to figure out?
Really annoyed the queue function is broken. For example... Add a song or two to the playlist. Say you have sonf ABC and song DCE in the playlist. You then search and add song ZZZ to the playlist and click add to queue or add next. It will add it and you will see it between ABC and DCE but it will play DCE not ZZZ. Will skip over ZZZ Everytime. We have tested this twenty times and it f's up Everytime. Please fix. Used to work exactly as expected.
Bonjour à tous..Je voulais savoir quelle était le meilleurs compromis quand on possède une barre de son arc est un sub gen 3 , je voulais installer 2 enceintes five avec... mais les vendeurs dans certains magasins mon dit que sa ne ferait pas le boulots comme prévu.... Quelqu'un a un avis concrets ? Si jamais 2 enceintes five ne font pas le taff, quoi prendre ?
I recently picked up a Connect(gen1) with the hope of playing my turntable through my Sonos speakers (play1's) and my audio amp. So the TT goes into phono preamp into the connect and out to the amp. Playing the TT via the Connect into the amp, no problem. Playing the TT through the Connect to the play1's no problem. However when I group the room with the connect to the room with the play1's the output to the amp drops to virtually zero while the play1's are fine. Have fiddled with variable/fixed volume and the source level sensitivity to no dramatic effect.I am running S1with no issues. Although I am using Google mesh through out the house I have set up the Sonos gear to be on it’s own mesh. Love to hear some thoughts, Cheer, David
I would like to buy the Sonos Move as it seems to be the best portable speaker out there. But I got some concerns about privacy - perhaps a bit paranoid but with reports about various smart speakers passing on conversation snippets etc to companies, and of course the unlikely but still possible hack, I am hoping the Move has a hardware mic mute? And not just a software mute that can be overridden by the app etc. If no hardware switch then perhaps the Move will be released in the SL version soon?
I have a standalone Play 1 in my bedroom that does not connect to my wifi anymore. It worked fine for years, the problem started when I changed my wifi from 2.4 Ghz to 5 Ghz, and then after back to 2.4 Ghz (because I learned Sonos does not work well with 5 Ghz).The Sonos system in my living room is still working perfectly.I tried everything to make it work again without result:unplug power and restart reset to factory settings connect with ethernet cable to update sofware reboot my routerEverytime when I try to connect the Play 1 to wifi using the steps in the Sonos app, I get the same message: “we could not connect the play 1 to your wifi”.The 2.4 Ghz frequency (active) and 5 Ghz frequency (inactive) have separate names in my router, so there can be no confusion in the system about that.Thank you very much for your suggestions :)
Every time I initially start playing music through the S2 app to 2 speakers (a Sonos One and a Sonos Roam), the app says it is playing to both speakers, but only the Sonos One is actually playing any music. I have to go into the ‘Now Playing’ section of the S2 app, uncheck the Roam, then re-check it again in order to get the music playing out of both speakers correctly.This happens EVERY time I have stopped and then restart playing music.
I have a pair of roams that I use as a stereo pair. I also have a move. I was just thinking it could be pretty cool to as a high pass to the roams and a low pass to the move to be able to use these three as a 2.1 system. I get that the move isn’t a dedicated sub, and I get that it won’t go as low as a dedicated sub, but it’s got much better bass response than the roams and I imagine one could get much better response at higher volumes from this system than running all of them full freq.
