So, I’ve ripped out my very dated entertainment center builtin and and rebuilding it. I’m strongly considering an Arc/Sub/Surrounds solution for cleanliness, and frankly, the cost is appealing. However, I have an 18ft steeply angled ceiling. Can Trueplay compensate for this? My other option is to stick with an AVR receiver and install pendant speakers so I can normalize the height of left and right. Anyone using an Arc with angled ceilings?
Possiedo due casse Symfonisk Ikea Sonos in configurazione stereo, ho ordinato un Sonos Sub 3^gen. Se acquistassi un televisore Samsung o LG compatibili Airplay 2, utilizzando le App del televisore quali Now Tv, Netflix, Amazon, Apple tv, etc. posso trasmettere il suono (senza aggiungere altri dispositivi tipo soundbar beam che tramite il cavo hdmi arc potrebbe farlo) al mio impianto Sonos. I televisori con Airplay 2 “a bordo” sono in grado di trasmettere l’audio o possono solo ricevere con Airplay ?
las voces de algunas peliculas se oyen muy bajas , si sonos permitiera aumentar las voces me haria muy feliz
cuando compre sonos arc lo compre entusiasmado , pero aparte de no descodificar dts ,el dialogo de algunas pelis se oye muy bajo , porque sonos no permite subir el volumen de los dialogos es lo unico que le falta a este pedazo barra
So I'm not special or anything lol, just wanted to put out there what would make me buy more Sonos. Seems a new product is on the way, and some recent new functionality. None of which interests me in the least. At least, in one case, without my top wishlist item. Btw my system = 2 Arc, 2 Fives, 1 gen 3 Sub, 8 One SLs. 1) 7.1 surround. Not even close to any other "want". Here's the benefit for Sonos. I but 2 more Ones for my main theater setup, (already have 5.1 with the Arc and Ones) and at that point more likely than not I buy a second sub since it is now supported. (But ZERO chance I buy a second sub without 7.1) In addition, for my second theatre setup - another Arc, 2 more Ones (have a couple down there but they can be moved elsewhere should I go with a different brand for that setup - which won't happen if, well there's that pesky 7.1 again). Add a sub, or even two and another Arc. So there's another 3k.2) DTS. I know, never gonna happen is the chorus. For theater room

Hey allI’ve read a lot of posts on users having trouble connecting the Beam to Samsung televisions, but can’t seem to find a definitive answer on whether my TV will experience these issues.Does anyone use the Beam with a Samsung UE50RU7400U, and if so, do you have issues with it?I’m really keen to add the Beam to my setup but don’t want to run the risk of buying it and it not workingThank you in advance for any help you have provide :-)Rex
Hi, I used to have a Vizio P65. It stood tall enough that the Arc sat neatly in front of it on the entertainment center. I just upgraded to a LG CX65, and it sits so low that the Arc blocks an inch or more of the bottom of the TV.I bought the wall mounting kit for the Arc, but all the instructions are for mounting below the TV and I did a bit of research and it looks like there could be problems with ATMOS mounting above the TV (I do have a vaulted ceiling if that makes a difference). I’d love some opinions on the efficacy of putting it above the TV. Thanks.
I have a Playbar and a Beam. But I ALWAYS play the same thing on all my TV’s (I have 5 but use Sonos as my sound for all of them). But if I turn on the TV with the Beam and the TV with the Playbar, the “Group” function is disrupted and I have 2 groups. I can put them back to one group but I have to pick the source. Unfortunately, they both say TV Input. Why can’t I rename them or why can’t it list the room the TV Input it located? I can see this if I look on my Mac but not from my phone.
HI EveryoneI am wishing to create a media wall similar to the ones in the picture attached, where my ARC is mounted in a housing above or below the TV.Searching through the forums and chats that have already been created there was much discussion about the up firing speakers in the arc and the distances that the ARC required around at each end and above and therefore its placementMany of the chats are over 6months old and SONOS community was wishing for updates as time progressed. I was wondering if there is any further comment or success stories of the ARC in a built in unit or whether people had tried this finding poor results Many thanks
Hi there,I have two Sonos One SLs that until now worked just fine. I just got a Beam to go with my TV and hopefully integrate into the system. When I try to setup the One SLs as surround sound it says they are connected, and the Beam works, but no sound comes from the One SLs. How do I fix that?! Also, just to be clear it looks like I have to use two as surrounds? I can’t use just one? Samantha
I am in the process of putting together a home theater/media room. Its a relatively small room, ~17' x 13', and I am putting together all the components.After spending time over a few visits at local stores and being blown away by the sound I pulled the trigger on a Sonos system. I was attracted to the other features of the system besides just movie/TV sound.I purchased a Playbar, Sub, and 2 Play 1 speakers. After doing some more research I started to have some concerns that I may have bit off more than necessary given my wants and needs.My main goal is great surround sound from movies and TV, the other streaming features are nice to have, but I am concerned I may have significantly over-payed for what will be primarily a surround sound system for my TV. Are the other features worth it?I would love to hear any feedback or advice from more experienced Sonos users.Also, I was told I did not need a bridge, however, i seem to be getting conflicting information on that. My router is downsta
I must say, the smallest of changes make all the difference! For me, using an older iPad for Trueplay, pointing the mic towards the arc when tuning for 2nd part and then following Peter Pees advice on angling the arc (to achieve better atmos) made huge differences in the sound, night and day really. Highly recommend Peter pee videos if you’re not getting the right sound!
I currently have a playbar and two rear surrounds and sub. At times I move my two rears to full music playback when entertaining. I recently moved my main TV to Apple TV as playing my itunes on the tv with lyrics is a pretty cool feature. However, since the system is routed through the TV I can only use ambient mode for the rears which really lessens the experience. My questions are….Is there a work around here? If I upgrad to the ARC does the work around options make more sense? Thank you
Setup: beam and 2 OneSL’s as surround products. I don’t always want to use the system in surround mode, so toggle the surround setting to off - simple. However, doing so changes the status lights on the OneSL’s to flashing green - which is kinda annoying. The issue though, is that the OneSL status light still flashes even when status lights settings are toggled to off! Any suggestions to overcome this? Am I missing something?
Anyone else ordered a sub from sonos website and still waiting just about to hit 6 months no communication from sonos have to keep contacting them and everytime get told in a few days will be dispatched been given at least 10 different dates.
