I have a Sonos Roam that is Bluetooth linked to an Amazon firestick for movies outside in my backyard. The firestick is connected to a projector. I grouped my Sonos moves as a stereo pair in the front and a sub and two play 1’s in the back for a more immersive sound. It sounded awesome with no audio latency lag. I'm wondering if I have a beam, sub, and two play 1’s if that is transferable to play audio in a 5.1 set up outside being grouped to the roams Bluetooth or if the Bluetooth portion limits that capability. I've heard of connecting an Apple TV outside to it through all Wi-Fi but i also don't know if the beam isn't connected directly into a tv if it can send out a 5.1 sound over Wi-Fi. Anyone have any insights on these two possible set ups? Thanks in advance, Brian
After a year of trying to figure out why I would have 1 or so seconds of complete sound drop when watching atmos content every 10-25 minutes, I found a thread that fixed it. Setup is a Samsung Q80, Apple TV 4K, Sonos Arc/Sub/Ones. In the Apple TV 4K, turning off match frame rate made the sound drops go away. From what I read, when/if the frame rate reconciles the sound drops. Hopefully this helps others as it took finding the right thread to fix it a year later! Good luck all!
I have a pair of Sonos move speakers (bought them versus 1s because I enjoy the flexibility to take them outside in the summer) that are hooked up to my turntable via a port. They work great, but are currently sitting on boxes because I haven't found any decent stands that are meant for them. Curious if anyone in the community has found a good set of speaker stands that can securely hold them? I know I could wall mount with Sanus but I would ideally want them a bit farther away to get a better sound when I listen to records.
I currently have the Beam + 2 Ikea Symfonisk bookshelves speakers. The Beam placed in front and the two Symfonisk in the back. However, I’m interested in more sound in the front as not everything I watch onTV is with proper surround sound and then the Beam is a little «weak» sounding all alone. So I was thinking adding two Symfonisk in front as they are cheap and produce good enough sound for this use. Would this work? Beam + 2x Symfonisk taking care of the sounds in front and supporting the Beam in stereo broadcasts and 2x Symfonisk in the back as the rear surround speakers? Thanx in advance for any reply and help!
Hi,I am trying to figure out how far below the TV the Arc has to be placed with an extendable wall mount, i figured since the Speaker is now coming out 5 inches i no longer need the full 4-5 inch clearance from the TV since the upfiring speakers are now in front, but the only other threads covering this topic were in a recessed tv. In an ideal world id like a flush arc that I can pull out when watching movies, and recommendations on minimum distance?Thank youDeep
Theres a ton of questions on this and other forums about surround speakers not working well when PCM (Stereo) feed is detected and it seems there is a setting missing from the “Surround Audio” page of the controller.This is especially the case in my set up, where my speakers are used primarily to fill the space in a large area so that music primarily fills the room, this set up works really well with stereo audio sources and really comes to life when we use surround sound (and apple spatial audio does this well).However every time we come across a video source where stereo (PCM) audio is present, the ambient rear speakers just are not powerful enough to fill the room. We have the option for Audio sources in the “Surround Audio” settings that allow for Ambient or Full Music Playback which is great for audio, but we need the exact same option for Stereo PCM (Video Equivalent) - Maybe this could even be solved by a tick box that just says “apply these settings to PCM Audio”Obviously I rea
Hi, My Sonos arc (arc + surround + sub) is connected to a Samsung QN80Q80b through the HDMI eARC port. I have tried playing atmos content (movies tagged as dolby atmos) through the native (to the TV) netflix and disney + apps. Each time, on my sonos app, I see it as Stereo PCM not dolby atmos (verified in the about my system page as well).Any advice? I’m stumped. Expert settings on the TV audio have HDMI-eARC Mode and Digital Output Format set to Auto. Dolby ATMOS is enabled. EDIT: Welp that was an easy fix. Had to reboot my TV (Hold down the power button till the tv turns off then back on). The TV was previously connected to a playbar … maybe that was the issue that rebooting fixed?
Hello all, First post here so apologies if anything is off, let me know if so. Anyway, I’m looking at upgrading my current Beam Gen 1 to a Gen 2 to get Atmos. Most of the content I watch is from 4k UHD disks using the PS5 as a player. Now, my TV only has a HDMI Arc connection and not the e-ARC. I was originally led to believe I couldn’t therefore get Atmos but have now read I’ll simply get Dolby Digital Plus (which my TV can passthrough) rather than True HD.However, I have since been told that because 4k UHD disks use a True HD track then it won’t be possible to get Atmos from the Beam Gen 2 without getting a HD Fury Arcana to fix the no e-ARC issue. My assumption had been teh Trud HD track on the disc would simply revert to a Dolby Digital Plus track but I’m now being told that isn’t the case.Can anyone confirm this for me, or tell me the opposite? Basically, has anyone got experience playing 4k UHD disks with the Beam Gen 2 and a HDMI Arc connection and let me know what happened? I d
OMG playing a song and toggling the setting on and off in the Sonos App; What an amazing difference!!!I can’t find the words to express what an amazing difference (actually I can but they might not be appropriate in a public forum)Take a bow Sonos well done (Soundbar, Sub and 2x Play 5)
Good morning everyone. I have a set of two Play 5s that I use to listen to music. Now I would like to improve the TV audio a lot (especially the speech), do you think I improve a lot by purchasing and connecting a Beam soundbar? Or do I just connect the two Play 5s to the TV? Thank you
Hi all,I can’t seem to get my Ray via the app to recognise my Hitachi TV remote so that I can adjust the volume (the remote still only adjusts TV speaker volume). When setting up (volume up x3) the Ray flashes, but the app says it can’t detect a remote and I can’t find a set up/ help guide to fix the issue.I’d appreciate any ideas! I’m using the hitachi TV alongside an Apple TV. Thank you so much.
I have an ARC and LG C8 connected via the HDMI ARC port. About 6 months ago, the sound started not to come out of the ARC and when I tried to turn up the volume, I received this volume bar at the bottom of the tv with a green music note merged with the bluetooth symbol. I disconnected and rebooted everything, some times the problem would fix itself, sometimes nothing would change. I can’t figure out why it’s doing this… I’m in the process of purchasing a new cable to see if that’s the issue. I have ran a diagnostic - 740537237Has this come up before? Is there any solution beside someone blowing me off and telling me it’s the TV or something else?
Hi All, Just bought a Prism Q65 QE Pro TV, the TV comes with the Bluetooth remote control and had connect the TV and playbar via Optical cable. However, Im not able to control the Volume from TV remote control. Appreciate if anyone can help to advice the correct way to setup the TV with Playbar. Thank you !Darren
We are installing a Murphy bed in our house. Because of the lack of wall space I want to attach the HDTV to the Murphy bed and ideally I would like to have the Sonos Beam attached to the HDTV mount so that it is below the HDTV and would be secure when the Murphy bed is in use. In other words the bracket would be have to be able to hold the Sonos beam even when the bed is open. Any ideas? I also need some suggestions for an appropriate HDTV mount for the Murphy Bed.
Hi there,I used to have 5.1.2 setup with Sonos arc and two play 1’s, but since I moved recently, the play 1’s aren’t really an option anymore. So I was wondering a few things.1. Is it possible to use Sonos Arc + Sub alongside a Sonos Amp + two in-ceiling speakers, and use the in-ceiling speakers as left/right behind the couch in my home theatre setup?2. Is it possible to have the same amp connected to another pair of in-ceiling or wall speakers for instance in the living room, and while running a movie on the home theatre sound setup, to be playing music on these? Or would I need another amp for that?I hope you can clarify for me :-)All the best.// Mikkel
Vi har 2 Arc i huset, som hver er koblet sammen med en sub og 2 stk. one. Pludselig virker surround og sub lyd ikke længere. Vi kan sagtes koble sub’en sammen med andre enheder og så virker det fint. Vi har forsøgt at nulstille både arc og sub, men lige meget hjælper det. Er der andre der har oplevet dette og fået det fikset?
Bonjour J'ai actuellement un système sonos 5.0 composé d'une playbar et de 2 sonos play:1 en surround pour le home cinéma et une chaîne denon df107 pour la musique. J'ai pour projet de remplacer tout ça par le sonos amp nouvelle génération associé à deux enceintes bibliothèques qui restent à définir connecté en HDMI à la tv. J'ai plusieurs questions à ce sujet :- est-il pertinent de remplacer une playbar, pour laquelle je suis déçu de la spatialisation stéréo, par un sonos amp ?- que penser de l'effet surround généré par les 2 play:1 associé à l’amp? Les effets sont ils bien gérés? Existe-t-il une dégradation à ce niveau là par rapport à la playbar?
I just bought a Panasonic TX-43LX650E Android TVTM and I can’t get the remote control to run my SONOS system. Is there a solution or is it preferable to buy another controller? If I need to buy another controller, any advice on what command to buy from Amazon to manage TV and Sonos? Thanks
