Connecting Sonos Beam to Epson EH-TW7000 (FireTV use)

Hey everybody,

we are having troubles to connect our Sonos Beam (+ 2x Sonos One SL) to our projector Epson EH-TW7000. Our end goal is to have 5.1 Sound. Our main input is a FireTV Stick.

The projector doesn’t have any HDMI Arc output nor an optical. I already bought a HDMI Matrix Switch and tried to connect it with the optical adapter that came with the beam as I noticed the HDMI Arc doesn’t work. Unfortunately I had no luck with getting a connection even through the optical...

This is the HDMI Matrix Switch I was using:

Is there anything else I have to set for the sound to work? And if possible a different solution to get 5.1 Sound as I heard that optical is not compatible.

Thank you so much!

You need a different switch/extractor/splitter with ARC/eARC support for the Beam. I would perhaps try this Feintech product instead…

However just check with the Feintech support desk that it supports your model of projector before purchase (I think it will).

It definitely supports the Epson Projector models EH-TW8100, EH-TW7300, EH-TW6600, as can be seen here in the notes on the latest firmware update:
