Greetings, I am preparing to set up a completely new TV room and I could use a small piece of advice. First details, then a couple of questions for anyone willing to help . . .
-TV (Sony A80J) is being delivered later this week
-Sonos (Beam Gen2, Sub + two S:1s) is sitting in boxes currently, will be connected via eARC
-Ancillaries will also be tossed into the mix: Sony BRP, Dish Satellite Receiver + OTA antennae
-Which should be set up first, the TV or the Sonos system?
-Should I connect everything & plug into electric outlets prior to setting anything/everything up?
-Any particular pain points or cautions that would be good to know?
-Also, is there any value in allowing the TV to do its thing sound-wise along with Sonos? The TV has decently good native sound (or so I’m told) and I guess I’m wondering if allowing the TV to emit sound along with the Sonos equipment offers some extra “oomph” or if it is best to just forget about this idea?
For what it’s worth, I will be using the Sonos equipment as a home theater setup but also to enjoy music. I’ve done my research and I’m feeling quite comfy with the Sonos setup itself, once it is time for that. I have also done some searching online for answers to the above, but I’ve only come up with advice on the likes of adding a new TV to an existing Sonos system. I’m sure the guidance I seek is out there somewhere, but it hasn’t turned up easily and I thought this might be the best place to ask.
Thanks a bunch in advance.
