I want to connect DVD audio wirelessly to my Sonos amp & ceiling speakers via Roam. I think there should be Wi-Fi and or Bluetooth enabled DVD or Bluetooth-ray players out there.Does this sound doable? If so should I go for Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to the Roam?Any other advice welcome!
I have two Sonos Roam speakers for my office and it's always just one speaker that will randomly stop the music and start back up a random amount of time later. I would have them either studio paired or just playing the same station on both speakers within like 15 feet of each other. Does anyone know why this would happen?
I just got a Roam, and I’m having issues with the playback from both the system through WiFi and through bluetooth from my phone. The Sonos app shows that music is playing, but it’s faint and stuttery. Turning it on an off (either to sleep or full off, ) will sometimes fix it, and starting the music stream on one of the other speakers, grouping the roam to that speaker, then putting the Roam to sleep and waking it up, will often fix the issue. The power light will be solid white, but once I attempt to play music it starts flashing slowly between white and orange, which is supposed to indicate diagnostic mode, but even a factory reset and reconnecting the Roam to my system isn’t helping the issue.I also have yet to get the Roam to do anything more than stutter through bluetooth, and since the factory reset, can’t even get it to re-pair through bluetooth. I’m hoping there’s a quick fix, but my searches have come across similar issues, but no fixes (though it’s possible I’ve missed someth
Hi everyone,I’m trying to add a product to my current system that already has 1x SONOS SL in it. My second SONOS SL product wasn’t found when searching. Unplugged and tried everything, apart from factory reset. If I factory reset the second SONOS SL, will it reboot the system (including the first SONOS SL)? scared to try!
I accept it is not possible to stereo pair two Roams via Bluetooth. However, the Roam appears to handle Bluetooth and Wi-Fi simultaneously as I can receive a Bluetooth input from my Sony Bluetooth record deck and then group the roam with my other Sonos speakers via Wi-Fi.I would like to buy a second Roam and use two as a stereo pair with my Bluetooth deck. Can I do this? Will one of the Roams be able to simultaneously receive a Bluetooth input from the deck whilst working as a stereo pair with the second Roam via Wi-Fi?Logic says yes, but I’d rather not shell out another £179 if it doesn't work.
Haven’t even bought into SONOS but am SO close to doing so. One bit of information I have been unable to find concerns how power is managed. I’m specifically looking at the SONOS 5 (maybe the Move) to use as a system in my den, as a stereo pair. Once setup is it “always on”? That is, when I want to use it will I just select it in my device (any Apple device using AirPlay) and then play? Or are there power switches?
How long is the mounting bracket for the ARC? Trying to figure total length and where the screws would be. I have a cabinet that the TV is in. The old “hole for your TV” idea. Problem is the hole is not long enough to just put the ARC on it. And the shelves sit in from the concrete hole. Would you suggest putting the bracket on the shelf below it and just pulling that shelf out a bit? I’m not sure how else to do it.
Just bought a Roam for Christmas. Connected it to my existing Sonos system but it would not play music from Spotify, Sonos app or bluetooth. Tried several different iPhones but none would connect. I eventually got it it to play by a hard reset but if I stop playing and re-start playback the Roam it makes a strange clicking noise and the volume resets to 15 and there is no music played. Tried resetting again to factory setting and re-did the set up and the then the same thing happened. Not too impressed with this device compared to all my other Sonos kit. Any suggestions welcome as so far this is a dead speaker in my Sonos system.
So for Christmas I got my wife a roam, opened it Christmas Day and the problems began. It seems to reset or power on and off every 5 seconds. Music will play for ½ a second and volume automatically defaults to 15. Turn it up, back to 15 and get a blurb of music. White and orange light flashing constantly. Contacted CS determined that it was a faulty unit… so here we are what 3 weeks later finally get my 2nd roam and the same exact thing. Very frustrating to pay so much money for a tiny little speaker and they don’t work right out of the box. Everything else works flawlessly on my system. Any ideas on my problem?? Anybody experienced this kind of failure 2 times in a row?? I’m about to just ask for my money back it’s kind of ridiculous.
I’m interested in adding a Sonos Roam to my system and am hoping to get some feedback on cold weather performance. I do a lot of hiking and backcountry skiing and temperatures are frequently below freezing. How does the Roam perform in cold weather? Are there any third party cases that help keep the unit warm?I’m currently using an old JBL Clip3, but it’s very temperamental in cold weather. It works great for two hours or so, then completely dies and won’t take a charge until it warms back up. What can I expect from the Roam?
OK I get that stereo pairing drops when the speakers power down. Its a pain in the butt but not a deal breaker. My problem is that not only does the pairing drop on the Roam, it loses its connection to my voice service and on occasion one of my Roams will completely drop off the system and have to be added back in. Also, half the time I re-pair my two Roams, only one of them plays music. The only solution to this is to remove the offending speaker and then reinstall it in the app. And them go through the pairing again with fingers crossed. WTF Sonos? I like your products but clearly Roam is not production ready as it fails at several things that a portable speaker MUST do. Its pointless to have portable speakers when they are in fact the very opposite of portable. I am concerned that they will never work for the purpose they were intended for in their current form. So are you going to fix this or do I need to return my Roams and find another option?
Aka daisy chain. Many cheap bluetooth speakers can do this so it would be disappointing if the Roam can't. I do know that two Roams will not do stereo in bluetooth but I can't seem to find anywhere if it even supports two Roams or more in mono.Thanks
I have just tried to set up my sonos roam, I have play one speakers in the rest of the house. It immediately asked for me to run an update which wouldnt run, there were no internet issues. eventually the device was not showing on the app at all.Error code 30 came up and we did everything to over come this via install app and chat bot but nothing worked. can anyone help?
