Hi all,


I have the new Sonos Roam speaker and I need to make alexa work with it. I've done this before but now I can't find it in the Sonos app, can anybody tell me where to go?


Thanks.

The 6 o-clock button is the multi-function button.
It play, pause, and even triggle voice assist
If you double press on it, it will skip forward, three times will reverse.

It has been the same setup of portable by Bose for  a while.

The mobile app will update its firmware  and also remove or pair to multiple device for you.
Bose portable speaker can pair up to max 8 devices but only two can be use at once.

I have been using bose since the soundlink mini II and now Revolve Plus, all has been the same multi function button.

everytime you turn it on, it will report the battery status, 10% interval up to 100%.

Regards,
Thomas N. Chan

Think of the shape like a large, probably 16 + oz paper coffee cup   upside down.

The outside is a perforated metal with no seem.  The top feels like silicone.  It sits on a base that has the charging cable plugin.

It has six buttons on  top;

 

---12 o clock is the off on button,

---6 o clock is the mute button.

---10 o clock is the pairing button

---2   o clock is the imput selectio  I use audio cable

---8 and 4 o clock are volume up down.

 

No, it does not   have bass trebble up down or balance selection;  you would have to do that from the music/siybd siyrce,

I have a boes revolve.
It is the size of a large water glass, slightly tapered from the bottom to
top.
It definitely has bass.
I can make the neighbours complain without trying.
It can use Bluetooth and audio cable.
I think it costs about 250 u s dolla.

Re: High res audio players

John Holcomb II
 

Hey Walter,

So while I don’t have any experience with this  my advice  is to try to  look for one that runs off android with google play services.

Lots of them run off android but it’s a crippled version and you can’t easily load something like talkback on them.

I’m also not sure how well the skins work.

Since most of these are running off a version of android or Linux of some kind, I’d advise asking on the BlindAndroidUsers list on groups.io.

Honestly? An easier solution would be using a android phone and using something that can decode the HighRez stuff like a DragonFly from AudioQuest.

You could also look for phones which has a High rez DAC. LG phones come to mind,    the latest Asus Roz phone.

Because you see this way you will have the ability to have access to apps like Tidal, Amazon Music HD, etc. and be able to update talkback easier as it runs Google Play Services.

You can also then get a card if the storage isn’t enough and upload your own *.FLAC  or whatever files you use and use a  High Rez player which you could download on android to play them on.

Apple could be an option, but with them you’ll definitely need a  DAC of some kind (no not the apple music adaptor.)

Also some DACs do not play  nice with Apple phones. Not all android phones either for that matter.

You’d need to find a phone which supports the USB Audio specification. Some phones do this well, others do not.

Pixel phones  do this well as well as Samsung and Sony.

I know a phone is not what you’re looking for but I’m not sure such an accessible solution exists in a  standalone player.

 

Hope this helps!

John

Hi all.  I'm looking for advice and recommendations on high res audio players, preferably that plays from memory.  My computer guy and friend is looking for some that would be suitable for me.  He is sighted where I am not so it would need to be a player that is accessible, or at least usable.  The player  doesn't have to have multiple bells and whistles but it's playback of high res audio files needs to be of very high quality.

 

My friend is downloading some trial versions at home to try and find one that I'd be able to use.  That is why I send this post to ask if anybody has recommendations of such a player they use and would recommend.  To let you know the kind of thing I'm speaking about a couple of players he mentioned are Audirvana or jriver media centre.  Has anybody tried either of these; are they accessible?  Any help would really be appreciated.  By the way this audio player I'm looking for isn't to play music on a phone or tablet but on a high end music system (my speakers are B&W 804's).  With many thanks.  Walter.

Yo Bro,

 

Try going to All Programs in the Start Menu, and in there find the Start-up folder and if this program is in there you can either delete it, copy  or cut it out and this'll stop it from starting at start-up.

 

If you have a copy of the program you can open the Run dialogue by pressing, Windows Key + R, and type the following

 

shell:appsfolder

 

and press enter.  Find the program in here and remove it.

I looked under the start up tab and services tab in msconfig, but discord
was no where to be found.
Then I looked in the discord application itself, and couldn't find anything,
as I am still learning my way around that application.

I know. i'm a Humanware dealer and have heard nothing but this rumor about the Victor Reader Stream being discontinued and was wondering about the source of this rumor. I haven't even heard this rumor from the biggest source of Victor Reader related rumors I know of.

Stay well,

You’ll probably get better sound from the HomePod mini. Also the Home pod mini isn’t battery powered.

This sounds like an awesome speaker! My girlfriend used to have a Bluetooth speaker that I thought sounded pretty good. However, this one sounds much better. I’m interested in this one and checking out the HomePod mini. I’d like to compare the two of them.

Hi Mike,

 

, this boes revolve is  Wider  at the bottom and tapers  in at the top.

Think of the shape like a large, probably 16 + oz paper coffee cup   upside down.

The outside is a perforated metal with no seem.  The top feels like silicone.  It sits on a base that has the charging cable plugin.

It has six buttons on  top;

 

---12 o clock is the off on button,

---6 o clock is the mute button.

---10 o clock is the pairing button

---2   o clock is the imput selectio  I use audio cable

---8 and 4 o clock are volume up down.

 

No, it does not   have bass trebble up down or balance selection;  you would have to do that from the music/siybd siyrce,

I have a boes revolve.
It is the size of a large water glass, slightly tapered from the bottom to
top.
It definitely has bass.
I can make the neighbours complain without trying.
It can use Bluetooth and audio cable.
I think it costs about 250 u s dolla.

Hi all,

Dana, do you have the paperwork from your purchase? If it's still under warranty, then contact the vendor or the company and send it in for repair.

Well, they still have the Victor Reader Trek.  You could take your stuff off the stream when it goes bad, then you would have it and you could maybe put it on something else.  I’m definitely not suggesting a phone!  I use my phone for making calls.  Pam.

Yo Bro,

 

Try going to All Programs in the Start Menu, and in there find the Start-up folder and if this program is in there you can either delete it, copy  or cut it out and this'll stop it from starting at start-up.

 

If you have a copy of the program you can open the Run dialogue by pressing, Windows Key + R, and type the following

 

shell:appsfolder

 

and press enter.  Find the program in here and remove it.

Windows 10 latest and jfw 2020.
I installed discord many moons back, how do I have it stop from starting up?
I looked under the start up tab and services tab in msconfig, but discord
was no where to be found.
Then I looked in the discord application itself, and couldn't find anything,
as I am still learning my way around that application.
