can we please get dts hd and dts x it is 2022 afterall
hi just touching on this which im sure has already been asked plenty of times, but can we just get dts hd and dts x already it seems crazy to me to think a system that can cost up to and over 1500 hasnt the ability to play these modern formats, when you could pick up a standard av receiver for about 300 pound which would support all the mentioned formatsI have found myself more times than enough now sitting down to watch a film and simply getting mute audio just because it is in dts hd or dts x and quite alot of the time this is when i have friends and family over so it isnt a good look for the sonos brand that it cant produce sound for these types of movies or tv showsit is somnething that could quite easily be achieved since yous went and enabled dts standard after not supporting it, i feel if yous want to be seen as the go to soundbars yous then have to make sure its the go to for audio formats also which currently it isnt dont get me wrong the sonos eco system and products are fant
Can sonos replace a kenwood Receiver
Hi everyone! I currently have the Kenwood KR-A4070 and speakercraft amp operating our built in speakers. We have 6 speakers. Can we replace the kenwood receiver and speakercraft with the sonos port? The system is pretty outdated - we added a bluetooth connect, but the sound is pretty inconsistent and we’re looking for an upgrade. would y’all suggest a sonos amp? Any suggestions appreciated! By the way, this is just used for music and is currently tucked away in a cabinet.TIA
Issue with angled ceiling. What is the best setup? And How?
Hey guys!I am moving to a new place and in my head I am planning how and where to setup my TV and my Sonos Gear (Sonos Arc, Sub, One surrounds).The living room is quite large, has a lot of big windows, angled ceilings and therefore a lack of opportunities where to place the TV with the Sonos system. I highlighted the area in the photo where TV is supposed to be mounted. (please note that all the furniture in the photo will be replaced.)I am concerned that the sound is going to be compromised due to the rooms setup. So I would appreciate some suggestions and opinions on this matter. Thank you and cheers!

pair era 300 + pair era 100 arc sub = positions for atmos?
Ok so decided with all my Sonos equipment I have I wanted with the new era units and new LG OLED 2023 G series I wanted to set it up the right way. got the TV mounted and of course the room isn’t a square. But now I replaced the Sonos pair of ones with the new era 100’s. And have a pair of the era 300. What’s the best placement and use of these. someone told me the 100’s should be to the right and left of you cornered a bit if it’s a corner room and then the era 300 to be used as surround sound in the rear corners A bit. Meaning I should use the mounts and change room set up?? I know what I know and know what I don’t
Dropped the ball
Picked up a pair of 300’s last week to replace my Symfonisk bookshelfs as my surrounds. Before setting them up I spent the night at a friends house and just set them up as a stereo pair. Played some spatial audio from Apple Music and it was mind blowing how incredible they sounded. It filled an entire room as if there were speakers in every corner. It was like magic. It made listening music fun in a way I have never experienced outside of being at a concert. Fast forward to bringing them home and setting them up as my new rears to my Arc and Sub set up. They somehow sounded worse than the Symfonisks. And I did Trueplay multiple times just to be sure. I get that its a “different” approach to surrounds but after hearing what they’re capable of as a stereo pair I can’t, for the life of me, understand how a set of speakers costing the same as an Arc sound like this as surrounds. They also seem to have a choppy audio if you put your ears close to the speaker to hear what it’s really doing.

désactiver la sonos beam 2
Bonjour, Je viens de recevoir ma SONOS BEAM 2, j'aimerais savoir si il est possible d'éteindre la barre de son pour récupérer le son de la TV.Le problème que je rencontre est étrange. Sur ma Sony xh90 je peux choisir d'utiliser les enceintes de la TV ou un système audio externe.Quand je sélectionne dans mes réglage de retourner sur les enceintes de la TV ça fonctionne 2 seconde puis la BEAM reprend le dessus.Quelqu'un a déjà eu ce problème ?Merci.
Connect Sub to Multiple Groups?
In my living room I currently have a stereo pair of Play5 for music. I'd like to add a Beam just for the TV. I'm also considering adding a sub. Is there any way to have the sub work with both the Play5s and the Beam depending on which is active? I'm assuming the answer is no, but I thought it would be worth asking.
Benq Remote not pairing with Sonos Arc or Playbar
Hi, I have a BenQ x3000i projector connected to my Arc and I would like to control the volume using the remote. However, it will not pair. I have seen this issue on the forum previously, but the answer did not help. Previously, The Arc will pair with my Firestick remote, but not the BenQ which is an IR remote. So, I know that the Arc is capable of pairing through the projector, but not with this particular remote. Any clues. In the past, I have had no trouble pairing remotes, just this particular one. Thank you for any help. John
Sonos Era 300, Surround, and no Stands
Who else is sitting in this boat with my lame butt? Lol. Was unable to get stands for these things. Much larger than I imagined so sitting on end tables isn't happening (and not positioned optimal either with this option. I just do not get why everything they launch a new product, there is never enough stands. They sound great sitting on make shift stacks to test them, but will be getting packed up until I can get stands (anyone who is married gets this). Again I just don't get how they are never ready for the stand demand every single time.
Home Theater with Era300
Hello everyone from Rome :-)I write because I need the experts of this wonderful brand!I have a full system with Arc + Sub(Gen3) + One, I only watch movies with 4K discs and Playstation 5.I would like to understand if the addition of the Era300 gives me something more about the Atmos, given that the Arc itself already has speakers that go upwards for the Atmos effect.Does buying the Era300 increase the atmos effect? So I would have the Arc + Era300 atmos speakers?Thanks to everyone for the precious advices!

Connect to existing Ceiling speaker with Arc, Sub and Ones
Hi all, I recently moved into a house with existing wired ceiling speakers right above the TV unit and I already own an ARC, SUB and two Ones as surround. Is it possible to hook two speakers to the SONOS system? Would that be an overkill for what I already have? Thanks
Sonos Amp and 3rd party subwoofer issue
Hi! I am having issues connecting my Sonos Amp (Black) to my Klipsch SW-311 10-Inch Subwoofer (or vice-versa). I currently have two Klipsch speakers and the Klipsch Subwoofer connected to the Sonos Amp. Both speakers play but I am getting no sound from the subwoofer. The subwoofer is connected to the sub port on the Sonos Amp and the LFE port on the sub. The sub plays when connected to my Yamaha system but doesn't play when connected to the Sonos Amp. Is my sub's connection wrong? Will a sub with a built-in amp not work with the Sonos Amp? What am I doing wrong? Help please... Jale01
sonos Beam mutes when turned off
Hi All, I’ve seen several threads re the mute issue with the Beam, but understood that updates would resolve it. We have just bought the new Beam and every time we turn off the TV with the remote, it mutes the bar. If I use the Beam through the Snons App, it is muted to start (from turning off the TV) but when I stop the music, it stays at that volume. It’s not too much of an inconvenience, now that I know what is happening, but I’d like to know why it is defaulting to mute every time.
Wirelessly connect whole surround system (Beam + 2 Era 100) to iPad/Macbook, who stream a movie to a wired projector. Is it possible ?
Hey, I‘m looking to buy a home theater surround system (basically a Beam and 2 Era 100s). I want to know, if I can connect the whole system to my iPad or MacBook, which streams the movie to a wired projector. Edit: The iPad/MacBook both support AirPlay 2. Thanks in advance for your response !
Feature request - Auto EQ presets for Arc.
The Arc should have an option to automatically switch EQ settings based on whether you are in “TV mode” or playing music. For example, Speech Enhancement is great when watching TV, but does not offer a good music listening experience. For music, many people prefer to have more bass. Having to constantly adjust EQ is not great, but necessary for those users (like me) who use the Arc for both TV and music.
Samsung TV+Beam G2 connecting and disconnecting cycle at startup
Hi,Need some help with an annoying issue. I have a Samsung TV (QE55R 2019) + Beam Gen. 2. At startup of the tv it cycles thru connecting and disconnecting HDMI-eArc some 4-8 times before settling on either eArc on or off (roulette). I have tried disconnecting everything (have a PS5 connected to the one-connect box also). Think the problem started when I connected the PS5 but not sure. Have tried several fixes and nothing seems to get rid if the connect/disconnect cycling.
