Hey, I've tried all three channels, with matching my router to channel, and still get audio drops on uncompressed. I'm trying to stream my vinyl setup through my Sonos, and would love to figure out a way to do it uncompressed. My Diagnostic number is 6725258. If this does not work, is there a router you recommend? Or if i get a boost, would this help with it? Thanks!
I've decided to replace my expensive ($5000) 2.0 stereo system with a Sonos system in my music listening room. It is a 15' x 15' living room. I already have a pair of Plays1, and a Connect, for music in the kitchen area. I love the Sonos system. Anyway, due to budget reasons, I was thinking of a pair of Play3s + the sub or ... a pair of Play5s. I don't play super loud. I'm more interested in the sound quality. What do you think? Are the Play5s that much better for mids and highs than the Play3? I'm open to all recommendations. Thx, Rob
I've had issues since switching to BT, though there were occasional issues with Virgin previously. I have a grouped 5 and 1 with no Bridge or extenders, wirelessly connected to the Smart Hub. The hub's bands have different SSIDs. Regularly, and it always seems to.be overnight, the 2 units become ungrouped. Also, if I try to play the Sonos 5 using the play button on the unit, the orange light flashes and it doesn't resume. When i use an android controller, it takes a few seconds to find the system, then works as usual. Once or twice though, the controller's have failed to find the Sonos players but rebooting my Smart Hub has fixed this. Any ideas¿ Static IP addresses maybe? Not sure why this always seems to be at night, I don't think my router is powering down to save energy in its settings. Thanks
Hi all, last week I took my sweet two sonos play1 with for a jurney. I just wanted to be able to listen the music in a new place where I stay. My sonos app was full configured with all playlists, favorites and streaming services I use every day. Ok all looks great. My first stop. I turning the speakers on hoping to changing the wifi settings and be able to listen the music. NO WAY! My android software version 6.4.8. How such a simple stupid think cannot be done with wifi only. Ok what options do I have to set it up: Add another sonos system. Let's give a try. Somehow I got it working. I could connect to my speakers. But her is the second disappointment. Where are all my saved steaming account, playlists, favorites I have already configured. Nothing is there. Why?! What did I do wrong? It cannot be that such a simple features are not there. Please help! Dear support Does the sonos implemented these or similar user stories: User story 1: As a sonos customer
I love the Sonos system but I am really disappointed there is no support for bookmarks in audiobooks (and podcasts). I love listening to audiobooks and since I'm from Sweden Audible is not an option if I want to listen to Swedish audiobooks. I buy my books in MP3 or on CD and make them real bookmarkable audiobooks in the .m4b-format with the program Audiobook Builder so they are not DRM-protected. It's also annoying that I can't play the audiobooks I have on my iPhone in the Sonos app, I need to use the computer version. So please Sonos, fix support for bookmarks in audiobook (and podcasts) so all your audiobook loving customer can bookmark their audiobooks. :)
I have tried with support but no luck. I primarily use slack, but all music services have a delay 90% of the time of between 5-7 seconds. Watching the track time the song then ends 5-7 seconds after it is supposed to be over. I have 1 Sonos5 hard wired, no wifi, no switches just directly into a Fortigate VPN router.
I am looking at getting the optimum response from my sub and rather than moving the beast around unnecessary, I would like your opinion on room placement! Currently I have the sub placed in position 1 on the picture, underneath my dinning room oak bench facing into the room. I am considering position 2 and 3, primarily so that the sound of the bass is not being blocked by the table. Obviously however, these positions would place the sub some way from the middle of my play 1s. It might be worth nothing that the area immediately in front of the sub under the bench is open. Is my setup okay as it is or can it be further improved? It also might be mentioning that I have young, inquisitive children who might think the growl of the sub means it is hungry and needs feeding....
Hi, Love my 2 play 5's and sub. Don't know quite how to explain, but here goes. I know sub volume adjusts with master volume, but it should be built into software so that sub volume is a certain percentage of master. A higher percentage at low volume and vice versa. I'll put it this way. When listening to low volume we use 'loudness' to give a little extra bass but at higher volume you generally don't need it. I find myself adjusting sub level according to master volume. Couldn't software be written to do this automatically using some type of gain so the listener can adjust to personal preference? Thanks, Play bar is next.
I'm using the TuneInApp for several years now on my smartphone, tablet, Mac and - of course - on my Sonos devices. iTunes offers hearers the possibility to choose from different stream qualities a radio station provides. It would be great if I also may choose them from within the Sonos controller apps. This may also practical when a user is on holidays: when the user takes his Sonos Play: loudspeaker with him ;) and connects it to a mobile 3G/LTE router this could help saving bandwidth.
I love music as I guess pretty much everyone here does. I have been moving my play1 in and out of the house every time we have a party and would love it if Sonos came out with a play1 size speaker that would be suitable for the outdoors. I know I can buy other speakers and plug into an connect:amp, but it'd be much easier to just screw in a couple speakers to the eves. Also would love a smaller speaker then a play1. Maybe like a play.5, something small that you just need light background music. Even if it was portable with a battery would be awesome!! Hope y'all actually read these cause I'm sure others would agree with me. Thanks for building such and awesome product!!
Best to just wait for Sonos to integrate AVS... "Comparing both smart speakers to the Sonos Play:1 -- which, admittedly, has no voice control smarts -- was simply no contest: The Sonos sounds like it's playing music, whereas the two voice assistants can only approximate it. It blows both away. Destroys them. It offers deeper bass, an expressive mid-range and articulated highs that the Echo and the Home could only even hint at." https://www.cnet.com/news/amazon-echo-vs-google-home-which-sounds-better/
Hi everyone, I'm about to pull the trigger on a pair of Play:5s but I have a question about auxiliary inputs with a stereo pair. Forgive my ignorance, since I'm not an owner yet, but when I set up a stereo pair in the app, is the aux input of one speaker pushed to the paired speaker? I'm asking because what I've read tells me that I need an AirPort Express if I want to actually use the Sonos units with AirPlay, and not via the Sonos app... am I right about that, or wrong about everything? I'd ask in a store, but I don't have a stockist nearby, so I'll be ordering online. Thank you very much for your help.
I was wondering how directional the sound from the Play:1 is? If I place it on a bookshelf which is against a common wall to my neighbour (in an apartment block), will he get much noise from it if I was to turn the volume up. Obviously I wouldn't have the Play:1 facing the wall, it would be facing the rest of the room, but I am curious. thanks.
One of my zones uses a Connect and a 2 channels of a Emotiva UPA-7 power amp to drive NHT Absolute Zero speakers and 10d Sub. The other 5 channels of the UPA-7 are driving my HT 5.1 setup and triggered by the Denon 3312-CI. How can I trigger the UPA-7 when using the Connect zone?
Hello all, I'm designing a whole home audio system for my house which is currently under reconstruction. I'd like to go with Sonos. I think it'll be more cost effective than going with a multi-room audio system that they're marketing nowadays. I also am in desperate need of great sound quality and power. I plan to entertain a lot. Because of pitched ceilings, I'm really leaning towards the SpeakerCraft in-ceiling speakers so I can direct the speaker downwards. Some rooms are larger, others are smaller. I have about 8 zones all with two speakers except one which has four. I plan to use 8 individual connects to control each zone individually and/or multiple zones simultaneously. I want separate amps (not a Connect:AMP) that won't break the bank to give me the power Connect:AMP won't. The SpeakerCraft speakers I'm leaning towards are 8 ohms/125W. I'm stuck when it comes to amplifiers. Some say pre-amp + amp for the Connect, others say not necessarily. I would prefer a multi-input/multi-
