Thanks for the reply funhouse69. May I ask what kind of Blu Ray player you have?
post #932 of 939

I have a Sumsung BD-F5900 which does convert the Sound to 5.1 from DTS. That said I only use it on rare occasions as I have a Mede8er Network Media Player that I really like / use to play all of my movies. Of course when I rip my blu-rays to the network I have to convert the sound track which thankfully my ripping software does it automatically and converts it to AC3 which is a 5.1 that the Playbar Plays perfectly.

Just purchased the connect and the bridge tonight to incorporate into my theater. Not sure why I waited so long, I knew I would love it. Annoyed that 8 years ago I spent a ton of money on a wired Russound system, speakers, keypads, hard drive source etc. The hard drive crashed soon after I got it. Currently the main keypads no longer power. I hope to have installer come out and get the keypads back up to allow me to perhaps run the connect thru the CAV to allow the other house wide speakers to play Sonus. On the other hand I may just say to hell with it and purchase Play 5, 3 as I see fit and worry about the Russound when it comes time to sell the house. So far one of my better AV purchases in a long while.

Funny, I thought the Sonos seemed somewhat constrained coming thru my speakers. I attributed it to wireless etc...was getting ready to turn it off when I notice a little slider by the speaker, and wonder what that does. dragged it to the right and with my system turned to +3 to compensate for the constrained sound I just about blew the house down. I'm sure my wife and daughter who have already gone to bed wondered what the hell is wrong with him. Glad to know its not constrained...

Point your Dealer at the MYRO:BRIDGE for full Sonos/Russound integration.

I'm considering picking up a Connect to power my HT system when I want to listen to some tunes as well as a Connect Amp or another connect to provide music in a different zone with standalone, non-powered speakers. If I went with a Connect, I'd obviously need an external amp. Does anybody have any recommendations on a few relatively nice amps priced under 1) $300 and 2) $500?

Thanks in advance.

I have a AudioSource AMP-100 --it's OK -- I think I paid $80 but it was years ago. I also have a Sonos connect-amp and prefer it to the separates. Both are used for small (not critical listening) outdoor speakers

I have another question about the sonos connect: how does the volume affect the two outputs? I assume the analog output is affected by volume control, but the optical/coax outputs are not?

So if have have a Sonos connect and have the optical output going into my Pioneer receiver, changing the sonos volume will not change the audio? (I can still change the volume, but it does nothing?)

I really hope so.... It should then be possible to create software that would access the sonos volume value from the http/json api and automatically adjust the pioneer volume via it's tcp interface. (also so some intelligent source/power sync between the two devices)

There's a setting for that. You can configure the Sonos to be fixed volume or variable volume. It affects all 3 outputs.

Yes, this is correct. I have fine set to fixed volume and use the receivers I have it connected to to control volume. I have no experience with the variable volume level within Sonos in my system.
