My current layout is I have a Sonos Amp with 4 in wall speakers 1 left front, 1 left rear, 1 right front, 1 right rear. The left front and rear are on the left channel and the right front and rear are on the right channel. The amp is connected to my TV via HDMI ARC and the tv controls the volume of the Amp.
My question is if I purchase a Sonos Beam Gen 2, is it possible to connect the Beam to the Amp to “act” as a center channel? The tv currently controls the volume on the Amp, I would like the Amp and Beam to both work with the volume control of the tv. Is this possible? If so how would I connect this all together? My TV does not have two HDMI ARC outputs it also has an optical out but I do not believe this works if the output is already designated to the HDMI ARC. I don’t need the Amp to power the Beam, I would just like it to act as a center channel.
