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.
Hi All.BackgroundMy original intention was to go for the ARC + Sub + 2 One SLs but wondering whether I should go for the 5s. I know full well, that the Sonos 5s are overkill if they are primarily used as rears. However while it would serve that purpose, its more about having better music playback more than anything else (when listening to music in FULL mode). I don’t want to have speakers either side of the TV just for music (given aesthetic reasons) and it would also not leverage off the sub I would have already paid for. My room is fairly large - 20 feet long (6m) and its open plan on width 15 feet wide (4.5m) in the Living area but extends to a total of 30 feet (9m) including the dining area. The bulky 5s would be placed within a wall long book case shelf so they will be easy on the eye (located over 1m or 3ft behind the couch that faces the TV). I have no real intention to use the line in port (which gets disabled when using the 5s as rears). Questions: Does anyone have this
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?
Currently I have an 8+ year-old TV that has performed well but it is heading toward an honorable retirement. It is mounted in a corner of the viewing room on an articulated wall mount as will its larger, more technically adept replacement (LG QNED85AQA) with such new feats as Dolby Atmos, Dolby Vision and I’m hoping enough simplicity to learn how to use it. I will also attach an Apple TV (latest available currently) since I love the interface. I also requirement a second box from Dish TV to give me local channels and traditional viewing. (This is non-negotiable for other household members.) For audio the current setup is a Sonos Playbar mated to a early Sonos Subwoofer and a pair of Play:1s for rear channel. I imagine I’ll hook the Playbar up via optical to start while fiddling with the TV and sorting the video. This is also where I listen to music so I can maintain a happy status quo in that capacity. Once that’s sorted no doubt I will want the Atmos effect. Literally, a 2-minute stor
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.
I would like to have music play on my AV system (I have a denon AV-X4400H) when I start it on my sonos system via the app or voice commands and I would also like the Sonos system to play the music when I have music started from my AV system. Is this possible? Also, can the HDMI on your sonos connect be used as INPUT to an amplifier?
I have a Sonos Arc and recently bought two One SLs to add as surrounds. I can get the One SLs added to my Sonos app but when I go to add them as surrounds, it errors out telling me that “There is a problem adding your surrounds. Check the network connection and make sure your products are powered on. Try again.” If I quit the start up, it ends up saying “Living Room (+?+?)” on my rooms. Any help?
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
I bought an Arc and I want to know directly from Sonos what happens to the speaker arrangement inside the Arc when I connect the 2 One’s? I have heard that if the surround channels are taken over by the One’s, it frees up two of the Arcs surround speakers to drive more bass response? Is that an accurate understanding of how the software sorts itself out? thanks! If not please explain what happens with the two One’s. Thanks again!
