Does anyone know if I can setup a Beam 2 and configure in-ceiling speakers for the down firing Atmos elements (instead of relying on the Beam 2 virtual up-firing ) ?(i’m awaiting installation so apologies if this question has an obvious answer, and i’m using completely incorrect terminology)Thanks
Hi brains trustHere is my conundrum. I will be getting a base level TV for the spare room and wanted to pump up the horrible tv speakers slightly with a beam. In the main TV room I have a 5.1 playbar setup. So my question is whether I should just put the beam in the spare room or move the playbar into the spare room and have the beam 5.1 setup in the main room. Going to need to stuff around with wall mounting etc so need to make the right call early. Anyone have experience with both and can help out?Thanks in advance.
So I have the sonos Arc and decided to get the new 65" Vizio Quantum P Series TV. Read some tv re iews that showed it had great brightness and it seemed to support all audio formats via eArc (from what i saw on rtings. I'm not an audio expert, but I just wanted a good TV to hook up to my Arc and that would support whatever audio was sent to it.. Well, everything seemed to work well, but about once a week, the TV would start acting weird.. I could see the picture and sound, but the input and settings button wouldn't be responsive... when this happened, I couldn't even turn off the TV (even using the physical power button on the TV).. the only solution was to unplug the TV for about a minute and then plug it back in... This got annoying fast considering the TV plug is in the back of my entertainment stand.. I'm returning the TV and looking to get a new one.. the Vizio only cost about 1k on sale, but I'm not opposed to spending up to 2k on a tv. I wax considering the LG oled c1,
Hi Guys Sorry for another dropout issue, my setup in the living room (Beam, 2 ones as surrounds and a sub) drops out very frequently, maybe once every 5-6 minutes. I think I've narrowed it down to when we watch anything on Sky Q e.g. Netflix, live TV, recordings etc... The beam is wired to the router but surrounds and sub are wireless. I've also tried switching the sonos channel but hasn't helpedDoes anyone else have the same issue or have any advice?? Diagnostics - 1044364007Thanks guys for any help
I have Sonos Arc with two Sonos Fives as surround speakers that’s connected to TV with my Roku box. When watching tv, voice volume is not ideal as it’s primarily coming from Arc. I know I can adjust the volume in the app but it’s still not the ideal when watching. I end up pumping the volume up and. It becomes too loud.Is there a way to make the voice from TV come out of the 2 Sonos Fives I have?Also, when I play Spotify or Apple Music from the Sonos app, it sounds amazing (full and robust) as it’s coming primarily for my 2 Sonos Fives. How can I make it sound like that when watching TV (from Roku).Can I connect 2 Sonia Ones to this as well? Will it help?
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
Hi all,I have a Sonos Amp that I intend to use as the front speakers for a home cinema system. My questions is, can I combine this with a pair of Sonos One’s or Play:1’s as the rear speakers to make a surround set up?I’m pretty sure the answer to this is yes, so, follow on questions:If I do this, do the voice assistants get disabled on the rear speakers (I’ve read somewhere this might be the case, but since the Amp doesn’t have built in voice assist I’m not sure) Can I also add a sub to this set up easily - either the Sonos sub wirelessly, or a wired third party sub connected to the Amp’s dedicated sub output?Thanks!John
Hello! Did some Googling and reviewed quite some topics on here/Reddit/Unifi Community but couldn’t find anyone with the same symptom. I just recently bought some Ubiquity gear and got the majority of my devices on the new network. One of the things that I wanted to achieve was to wire all my devices where I can. This resulted in my Sonos setup in the Living Room beeing almost completely wired, except for the Sub. The setup is a “classic” Sonos surround setup with a Playbar and two Play:1's (and the Sub).The surround setup has went to a complete factory reset due to the fact that the remote of my new TV was not able to bind properly. This is still buggy but that seems to be another challenge I guess.Today, all of a sudden, a new device came up in my Unifi controller on the same port where my Playbar is connected to (and I don't use the second port on the Playbar for “daisy chaining”). While I was investigating this, 3 other devices (as in; unique MAC adresses) also showed up within the
Hi folks,All of a sudden I'm having all kinds of issues with sound, I can't be 100% sure if it's the tv or the sonos but I'm having issues with no sound at all sometimes, usually fixed by turning the tv off & on, though this morning I had to turn 'pass through' off & on again. Now I'm not getting 5.1 through Netflix, it's definitely a 5.1 source but all I'm getting is stereo pcm, I've tried all settings I can think off but nothing works. The beam is connected by eARC
Hi All. I have a Sonos Arc that im looking at wall mounting below my TV. I have a slim bracket on my TV, of which the tv sits only 6” from the wall. My question is anyone who has mounted there ARC with the bracket find any decrease with the sound quality/level. I heard there are sensors in the mount that make the bar change EQ.. is this for the best or not? Thanks
Hi. I currently own a Sonos One and a Sonos Roam. I'm considering buying the Pro-ject T1 Phono SB turntable with the Sonos Five speaker so I can get back to listening to vinyl. My living room is quite small and has been served by Sonos One so far, so I believe Sonos Five will be quite the upgrade (One will be moving to another room). I'd therefore love to use Five as my main sound output, also while streaming movies/shows. I don't own a TV and I stream video on my MacBook Pro and project on a wall through a Benq projector (model is from 10 years ago, EP4227, and I use and HDMI cable to connect it to my laptop). In the past, I've tried playing the sound on One while projecting the video (simply by having One and my MacBook on the same WiFi and selecting the sound output on One, while projecting the video through HDMI) but there's always been a substantial lag in the sound. I've given up and always use the MacBook speakers for sound, which is obviously less than optimal. If I am to inves
I have an arc, sub and 2 one sl’s. I am planning to upgrade to a new Tv. The Panasonic 50HX820B looks good with Dolby Atmos which should, in theory, make the most of my set-up when streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime via the Tv. However it seems to output Arc, not eArc. Will that make a difference to my sound experience?
Hi I’ve just bought a beam and and epson EH-TW7000 which i’d like to use to with a chromecast ultra and hopefully get dolby atmos. I now realise I need some kind of HDMI switch/matrix to get the audio out but I’m not sure exactly which one….don’t really want to spend another couple of hundred pounds on an HDfury if I can avoid it. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks,
Hello! Just purchased my first few speakers this week. I have a quick question re a potential set up involving 2 x Five, 2 x One SL, 1 x Sub. If I purchase an Arc, could I have this in the middle under my TV, a Five on either side of it, the sub at the back of the room, and the two Ones on either side of the sub? I see lots of set ups with either Fives or Ones at the back of the room, with an Arc under the TV, but I haven't found any yet that have speakers on either side of the Arc as well. Any suggestions or tips are greatly appreciated.
Hi folks,Let me start by saying ”I’m definitely a novice” and therefore not tech savvy in any fashion!So please be gentle.I have just purchased a beam for my bedroom and am impressed with the sound so I and am considering replacing my Boise bar in my living room and possibly adding some additional speakers. Suggestions are appreciated.I have a small 2 bedroom custom built house. My living rm is 14x14 and my bedroom is 14x16. They are separated by roughly 13ft of 4’to 5’ wide hall that opens directly into one another. I have a 55” Samsung TV in the bed and a 65” in the Liv rm. Now my thoughts are as follows. purchase a new beam for the Liv.rm. and a sub to place in the hall. I may add other speakers if needed. Again I’m open for suggestions. My primary question is can both of the beams share the sub?. I believe with the layout ,distance and openness of the hall to each listening area it should function fine. I hope to link everything together for music listening throughout and just s
I have a new Sony Bravia 75” 4K with a direct line to the internet for streaming. Audio includes an Arc, Sub, and two 1SLs. Arc is plugged into the eARC port. All channels are selected from the Home button with no inputs to the HDMI inputs. Prime, Netflix, MLB, Disney+ all work just fine, but Hulu loses all volume periodically. Sometimes the audio will work for a while and then cut out. Sometimes turning it off for a while will restore audio when it is turned back on.Any suggestions?
I have an ARC on B/O with Sonos - come on 2/28! During the wait, I plan on building some L brackets to allow to for the bar to be placed in front and below my tv. Can someone please measure the distance from the back of the Arc to the front of the foot (red arrow). I’ll researched old posts and know the distance between these ‘feet’ is 41.28 inches. Thank you!
Hi. I have the B&O 18 with Transmitter 1 and a Sonos Connect in the living room. I have a few other sonos equipment in other rooms. My current setup:Sonos Connect is the hub with 1 input (3.5 mm AUX Audio from TV) and output via TOSLink to my Transmitter. The B&O transmitter connect wirelessly to my speakers and subwoofer. Music experience is good except for AirPlay2. TV Experience is bad with a noticeable delay. I rarely watch TV so not an issue. With all the extra time at home because of covid, I do like to improve this and hopefully bring in AirPlay2 for music and fix the TV issue. Last year, I tried to upgrade to the Sonos Port but that doesn’t have TOSlink that connects with my B&O Transmitter. What do you recommend? What is the best way to connect the TV to a sonos? Or should I try to route the TV directly into my B&O transmitter? I have not been able to do the latter before. I had tried connect my TOSLink directly from TV into Transmitter and RCA
I’m thinking about purchasing the Sonos Surround Set, which includes the Arc, Sub and two One SLs. Is it possible to use the Arc as a center channel and connect two other traditional tower speakers as my front R and L speakers? Would I also need to purchase a Sonos Amp?
