I currently have a recent Samsung wall mounted TV, with the cables going through the back of the wall to the amp and other devices. As a result I want to avoid adding a Playbar and keep the aesthetics as they are. I also want to hook my TV up to the new Sonos AMP via HDMI/ARC (I have a new Samsung TV), but instead of using 2 x passive speakers with the Sonos One pair as the rear speakers, I want to use the Sonos One's as the front stereo pair i.e. no passive speakers in the configuration.
A nice to have would be 4 x Sonos One's, so that I get a stereo front and then a rear surround with the other pair. However, if the AMP limits me to just a single pair of One's at the front, I can live with that.
I know a Playbar would (probably) solve this, but I want to avoid adding to the wall or area where the TV is, as I have a convenient place for everything behind the TV. I even thought of using the Paybar as a 'dumb' connection, to get the TV to HDMI and output to the Sonos ecosystem, but it is too long to go in the space behind the wall the TV is mounted on...
Thanks in advance for your help.

At this time, it is not possible to use Sonos Ones as front speakers in a Home Theater setup. They can only be used as surrounds.
