Hi,

Struggled with this also. For me it worked to go into the Sonos app and do the following: 

 

Settings -> System -> Select your speaker/speaker set -> Scroll down to "Volume Limit" and change this to something lower (in my case 30-40%). 

This rescales the volume slider in Spotify, and still seems to work fine in other apps as well at least for me. Hope this helps some people!

That... actually does help. I had to set mine down to 20%, though. Thank you for that idea!!

Wow, thanks so much. It really is the solution we were looking (and waiting) for it seems. A great new year to all SONOS/Spotify people in this thread.

 

Just a small totally OFF-TOPIC question to all of you: already have some listening experience with the IKEAxSONOS speakers? Worthwhile buying 2 to add to my set of 1 SONOS:5 and a BRIDGE + NAD-Amplifier to 2 B&W speakers? 🤔

Hi,

Your solution works fine in many situations, unfortunately not for me.

The behaviour of the ”Volume Limit” scale is quite strange.

My situation is that I want to use my Sonos One for quiet music when I fall asleep.

If I listen to music, where the source is different radio stations (etc. TuneIn or DKDR), the music level set to lowest selection is fine.

If I select any music from Spotify, the level is 1 to 2 steps higher (even at the lowest level).

When at the lowest volume level, the ”Volume Limit” scale does not work.

If I reduce ”Volume Limit” the music disappear.

If level is set to level 2, and I reduce ”Volume Limit” to 50%, then it will be the same as level 1. Not the kind of functionality that you would expect.

I have lost faith in Sonos, they will never solve this issue.

I really hope, that Spotify will reduce their volume level to match all other music sources.
