Hi friends I'm in doubt about two projectors to simply watch 3D movies.Epson 2250 at best buy for $799 vs Epson 5030UB for 700$ With recent replaced lamp on a used page. who wins this fight?(with a blu-ray..and HDFury Arcana adapter for Sonos arc.) I like the Epson brand image I know there are other brands with more modern projectors but I love the balance of contrast and brightness of Epson the sharpness of the images sometimes makes you think it's 4k. so I am willing to pay a reasonable price for an old 3D projector. I don't want to buy a modern projector from another brand and not be happy with the image quality. I know that each person has a different style for the brands. I already have a current 4k project so I don't want to spend too much on a 3D HD I know the 3D of these two projectors are good. but the doubt is killing me to buy the new 2230 or the 5030UB used with a new lamp. i am not very comfortable buying used projector but this one for the price seems to be worth
Hey all! Got a new TV and wanted Airplay & volume control to work so I bought a Beam to replace the Playbar from my old TV setup. New TV working great with a Beam + Sub + 2 old Play 1’s for surround. ✅ All good.Question: If I “group” the old Playbar to the room (as configured above), will the Playbar improve or detract from the 5.1 surround sound?Yeah, I know I could/should just try it but I’m away from home and wanted to ask the sound geeks first. Thoughts?
New to Sonos and just want to confirm if I can use 1 amp or need 2? Looking to setup a 5.1 with soundbar/amp and 2 ceiling speakers in living room. Then in kitchen/dining room use 4 ceiling speakers. From what I read you can connect up to 6 ceiling speakers to 1 amp. Not looking to use both systems at same time, but can I utilize the 5.1 and then the 4 other speakers separately with 1 amp? Hope this makes sense. thank you, David
I bought the playbar,2 play 1 speakers and the sub almost 2 years ago,I noticed a few weeks ago that the sub is no longer connected to the rest of the speakers,it was blinking red and white,I went to all the troubleshooting recommended and nothing,I called sonos support twice and they were not able to fix anything,they offered to replace the sub since I'm out of warranty but they want 425$...plus my cost of shipping...and a new gen 3 sub is 700$...any other way to fix or any advice is more than welcome
Y A T IL UNE SOLUTION POUR UTULISER SONOS AVEC LA SAMSUNG 950 T POUR AVOIR LE SON DE LA TELE EN MEME TEMPS?
J’ai acheté le dernier Fleuron de Samsung , Une 75q950t . La télé comporte 8 hauts parleurs directionnel . Sonos est branché en optique et le son de la télé ne fonctionne pas en même temps.Le son sort uniquement du systéme du sonos. Je suis déçu d avoir faire le choix de sonos qui est top et devoir acheter un matériel samsung pour utiliser le son de ma télé. Si quelqu ‘un a une solution ou sonos fait l effort de plancher dessus je suis preneur. LB
I have a room that has a lot of background noise from a fan that kicks on and off (that cannot be eliminated). My TV is in the front of the room and I current have a Sonos Beam connected to the TV. The problem is you cannot hear the TV voices in the back of the room without turning the volume way up. The voices get drowned out by the fan. I’m trying to get a setup where I have a soundbar in the front of the room and another speaker in the back of the room both playing the same TV sound.My TV installers, BestBuy, and Walmart all indicated that I could do this by adding a Sonos One and setting it up as stereo. I have tried that and I cannot seem to get the Sonos One to play any of the TV sounds.Has anyone else figured out a solution to this? Is it possible to the bean and one to be in stereo (not surround)? Any recommendations?
I have an Apple TV 4K, and I currently have a Sonos Beam. my LG TV supports eArc, but the TV does not support Dolby Atmos. If I get the Sonos Arc, will the Dolby Atmos sound from the Apple TV pass through the TV, or does the TV need to support Atmos for that to work? I only play video content from the Apple TV, so I’m not going to upgrade the TV.
Hello Everyone, First time commenting on the board. Wanted to share what I’ve experienced with my Sonos Arc connected via ARC to a late 2018 Samsung QLED tv. All Dolby Atmos sound was via ARC/Dolby Digital Plus. I tested the following devices to see which had the best Dolby Atmos experience the past month. Roku Ultra and Roku 4K+ were the best for my set up because it worked with the most streaming services. Received atmos sound on Roku Ultra and Roku 4K+ stick. Note, the Roku 4K+ stick marketing language isn’t clear about it receiving atmos but both devices do based on my experience with Netflix, Apple TV+, HBO Max, Hulu, Disney Plus and Amazon Prime. Oddly, it appears that Roku’s overall marketing says Ultra is the only one that gets Atmos, but that’s not my experience. Received atmos sound on Amazon Firestick 4k on less streaming apps/services than the Roku. I don’t remember exactly which - but I believe it didn’t work on Netflix. No Dolby Atmos on Apple TV 4K (2021). The Apple w
Recently the TV volume output of my Arc + Surrounds has been way higher than my TV's volume control bar would indicate. It is such that when my TV volume is set to '1', it is actually pretty loud. Turning my TV one step down to '0' mutes the TV entirely. My TV volume goes up to 100. So now my TV goes from Mute to Loud to Very Loud to Apocalypse Loud.This is a recent issue and I don't know what has changed. In the past I used to set my TV volume between 10-13 for casual watching, and 15-20 when I wanted loud audio. Occasionally when I really wanted to piss off my neighbours or impress my friends, I'd crank it to 20-25. My Music and TV Surrounds are set to 0. My volume limitter is off. I just want the TV output bar to better reflect the volume, and give me a some wiggle room on the low level. Is there a way to calibrate this? Perhaps related- my turntable & Port audio has also been a lot LOWER recently.
Hi,I use simple setup for music and TV audio: Apple TV 4k → Samsung TV → Sonos AMP (S2) → HiFi speakers 2.1.I am using HDMI ARC for interconnection as neither my older TV or Sonos AMP support newer HDMI eARC standard. As now Apple Music received support for lossless audio (24-bit/48 kHz on Apple TV for time-being), I started to wonder if I have any quality bottlenecks in my setup because of HDMI ARC. In the Sonos app, Sonos system info I can only find such info:Audio In: Stereo PCM 2.0. PCM means uncompressed audio, but what is its resolution, what is sampling rate? I searched for information on HDMI ARC capabilities in the internet and at best I found articles as this one (https://www.tomsguide.com/us/hdmi-arc-faq,news-26262.html). All those articles have included the same table that shows comparison between TOSLINK, ARC and eARC. In that table it is stated that HDMI ARC audio pass through can have max ~1Mbits/s. If that is true, I am concerned. 1Mbits/s is not so much for uncompresse
I'm a Sonos newbie looking for a little advice.I'm finishing my basement, basically a big open room.I am planning on doing surround sound in the seating area w/ an Arc and two of the sonance in ceiling speakers for the rear. Ceiling is a drop ceiling. Am I correct in assuming that the speakers are too heavy for the ceiling tiles and need a bracket. Is there a recommended bracket for the speakers?
Right now I don’t have the budget for the surround sound setup for the Apple TV (2x one sl, 1x arc), so just wanting to see if I can just use two roam speakers that are mostly used for spotify, with the Apple TV and have correct stereo reproduction in movies watched on Apple TV.
Hi there,I have an Apple TV HD (2021) that is connected to my Optoma HD146X projector via HDMI. I want to play video through the Apple TV, but would like to play the audio through my Sonos setup (a Sonos Five and a Sonos One). When i play video through the Apple TV, the sound comes from the beamer built-in speaker through the HDMI cable. I can't figure out where/how to connect the Apple TV to the Sonos for the audio playback. What does work, however, is to go to the Netflix app, and from there scroll down on the Apple TV remote and select the Sonos speakers for playback. If i then switch to any other app, these audio playback settings are carried over to this app, and audio is played through the Sonos speakers. If i then want to change volume, i have to go back to the Netflix app as that seems to be the only place where i can control the audio sound settings for Sonos.Does anyone have an idea what i'm doing wrong and how i can fix this?Thanks in advance!David
I just bought a Sonos Arc, Symfonisk Lamp and Symfonisk Wall Art speaker. I will add a sub soon. Does anyone know if I can use the Lamp and Wall Art as my L and R surround sound speakers? I have the Arc and Wall Art and the Lamp is supposed to be delivered in a couple days
Hi Sonos Community,I have a Denon AVR-x3700H with Aperion Towers, Sub, and in-ceiling speakers. I’d like to add a pair of Sonos Ones as surround rear/side speakers. Not sure if this is possible, but any advice on how to connect the Ones to work with this set up would be appreciated.Thanks, Matt
Hi, we've setup Sonos Arc, Sub and in-ceiling speakers (as surrounds) for our great room TV and Google Chromecast. Cannot seem to be able to get the Chromecast remote working with Sonos Arc. Have already gone through the setup and even factor reset Chromecast twice. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
So my LG LED uses a Beam with Arc and a gen 3 Apple TV and with 2 Play 1s it shows Dolby Digital 5.1 as it should. When I watch the exact same content on my LG OLED with eArc surround and an Apple TV 4k (old version) I get the MC LPCM 7.1. Why the difference? I haven’t made any major setting changes on the led setup and it’s fine.
I’m downsizing from a house into an apartment and trying to adopt a neighborly spirit while compromising my movie-watching experience as little as possible - “but wait, the topic says ‘dual subs’?”I want to use a Sonos amp to drive a pair of bass transducers to get the shake of heavy bass while having my gen 3 sub turned down low-ish to be a good neighbor. Is it possible to have a mixed pair of dual subs in the Sonos app without killing surround sound? I’ve seen workarounds that involve creating a second room to group but my understanding is that that would negatively impact surround sound/Atmos.
Hi,I just ordered a projector and the newest apple tv 4k. Since I'm already a happy Sonos user (basically just have two Play:1 units), I would love to continue with that.From my research I figured that I have these options: Connect the ATV to bluetooth, for instance a sonos roam and then group the roam w. the other older units which – as I understand would make all of them play? Connect the ATV via Airplay 2, for instance to a Sonos One.. I heard that is has the caveat of having to re-connect every time, but might provide a better solution? I know that this is not what the above equipment was designed to do, so not looking for that kind of input.The whole idea of the projector setup is to have a big screen when I need it and then tuck it away when not using it and soundwise I want to be able to use the speakers for music as well.Any constructive input on the above?Thanks in advanceLars
Another device interfering with HDMI connection. I just bought the Sonos Arc, connecting to my Samsung TV QN65Q70TAGCZB via HDMI ARC/CEC. When my cable box and sonos are connected via HDMI, no sound through Sonos ARC. I can only get sound when I disconnect everything else, to include cable. Everything hooked correctly, tv setup correct. This happens every time the TV is turned off.Please help!
Hi, can any bright spark suggest a solution please. I want to connect the audio from my sky box (optical) to a Sonos Arc (HDMI). The Sky is connected to an Epson TW7100 projector but I would need a wireless solution for audio. Is this doable at all? So basically, what can I plug the optical audio into something to be picked up by the Arc. Thanks in advance.
I’ve recently been turning my living room into a home cinema piece by piece, currently have the arc, 2 of the Sub gen 3 and 2 ones for my surround setup, also have 2 moves which I absolutely love. going to upgrade to 2 fives for my surrounds, and putting the 2 Sonos 1 in my hallway and basement :) the sound quality is insane, the newly introduced Apple spatial audio works great with the Apple TV 4K really impressed
