I have 2 play 5 units paired , and they have worked without a problem since purchase . This morning they, and the paired sub all dropped off the network, When I physically examined the units, one of the play 5 units had no led light on. I have tried different power sockets, and a different power lead, but the unit does not flash the led when switched on, and is not recognised on the network. I used the pair in the morning, put them on mute, and then this afternoon this problem happened. Is their any way to reset or do I need a replacement ?
Hello to everyone. This is my first post. I have recenly added a Play 5 Speaker to my setup. I also have a Play 3, Connect and Bridge. Last night I noticed a quiet hiss coming from my Play 5. The unit had not been playing anything for a few hours. On hearing this I went to my Play 3 which is totally silent. Have I got a faulty unit or is this noise normal. You do have to have your head quite close to the speaker to hear it. Thanks
My sonos has stopped working with Napster it gives a message that the log in details are incorrect ?
when trying to play music from Napster on my Sonos system I get a message saying Login information not valid ? I recently changed the password on my account and also changed the bank account we pay from but it did still work.
I'm curious if I can use my Traktor S2 dj turntables with my Play5. Have tried the line in, compressed, uncompressed, but I'm having the delay issues. Will a ZP90 or ZP120 remedy the issue? I can adjust latency settings in the Traktor Pro software. Here's some intel on those various settings: http://www.djtechtools.com/2012/04/01/eans-tips-5-traktor-preferences-you-need-to-know-about
I realize it's not weatherproof and wasn't supposed to be, however, it sure would be nice to have some sort of cover for the Sonos Play5. I have it on my patio next to the pool. It's under the awning and won't get rained on but it still would be good to have it protected a little when not in use. Form fitted vinyl cover would be perfect. Something that wont get blown off from the wind. You guys could slap your logo on it. Would there be any heat generation if covered?
Have you considered a feature such as this: 1) Music is playing in another zone. 2) You press the mute and Vol + buttons (or some other unique combination) and the music playing in another zone would be sent to the zone where you press the buttons. Does that make sense?
My sonos play 3 component keeps dropping, require us to restart any controller and re added the component. The configuration has worked well since installation about a year ago. We've had no updates to our configuration or network other than the sonos updates. Our configuration is a bridge connected to a bthomehub router, and a play3 connected wirelessly. Our controllers are on a windows, iPad and android devices.
Can anyone please tell me if I you can see/change the 5GHz channel the Playbar uses to communicate with rear Play:3s in the Sonos Desktop/iOS controller? I've already got an Apple Airport 5GHz network setup, which most of my devices use & want to ensure that it's possible to ensure they're on distinct channels and avoid interference.
Hi all, So the new Playbar arrived and yes it does live up to the reputation, however I'm having a real problem disabling the TV's internal speakers it's a Panasonic TX-L55WT50 and I simply can't find any set up option to turn them off. I've even tried plugging a Jack into the headphone socket but nope that didn't work either. I can't simply turn the volume down or mute the telly as obviously the playbar depends on the TV remote control, so as soon as you touch the volume the tv speakers come back. The current work around is to have the tv volume turned down and to control the Playbar volume via iPad but this is far from perfect and flys in the face of the "simple" idea and seamless pairing. It's currently taking the edge off of what should have been a perfect solution, any ideas?
Sonos devices on average consume about 5 watts each if idle. Having 5 sonos devices around this means 25 watts on average idle consumption. Over a year this is about (25x24hx365) 219 kwh. In Germany where 1 kwh is about 0,30 Euro Cent this then means about 70 Euro (about 100$) just to maintain an idle system. This is just too much and could easily be reduced. Looking at the environmental aspect this gets even more critical: There are around 2.5 million Sonos devices around. This adds up to 110,000,000 kwh or 110 million kwh.
I wish I could select the audio output on the Play:5 to come out through its built in speakers or the headphone jack from the controller so I can keep my headphones plugged in. It would also be great to be able to have audio come through both at the same time!
I just purchased a Play 5 last week. I am completly impressed and am looking forward to buying more components! I seem to have a rattle sound when songs or voices with more bass are playing. It is quite noticable and I am certain there is a fix for this. So, what would the fix be??
I've got two Play5 as a stereo setup in my living room. Now I like to extend my system with a SUB and the new Soundbar. Unfortunately Play5 is not supported to setup a 5.1 system but this is another topic... Both the Play5 as a stereo setup could connect with the SUB and also the Soundbar could be extended with a SUB. Is it also possible to use the SUB together with the Playbar when watching a movie and using the same SUB with my pair of Play5 when listening music?
I am talking my Father into adding Sonos to his home, a connect to his hifi and a couple of Play5s. I have my own 4 zone system and wanted to lend him a Play5 to try for a few weeks. How can I remove the 5 from my list of components while he has it on loan?
I have purchased this Lucky Voice set of mics http://shop.luckyvoice.com/products/lucky-voice-party-box-karaoke-machine-white-mic But am trying to see if I can connect this to a Sonos 3 (or 5) as I cannot connect it to my tv. Has anyone tried this? Do I need to purchase a Connect (zone player 90) as this seems like an expensive way to use it! Thanks
Hi, and I apologize if this question has been already addressed somewhere in the forums. I will soon be moving into a two bedroom condo, square footage of about 1100 sq. ft. I am thinking about making the jump to Sonos. I definitely want the Sub, but would it be overkill to get two Play 5's or would it be better to save some money and get two Play 3's? I plan to set up the speakers in stereo mode and put them in my living room. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks.
