Have TV setup with Denon AVR 3700 receiver which has Klipsch speakers also have Sonos setup though out rest of the house. Want to be able to play sound from TV setup to Sonos. Have a Sonos Port that is setup to play sound through Denon to Klipsch. Essentially trying to do the opposite. Play whatever receiver is pushing to Klipsch speakers to Sonos setup. Do I use the line-in ports on Sonos Port? Then which port on the back of Denon do I use. Speaker ports on the bottom left in white are all used.
Not sure if this is the best place to ask, but I added a couple of Sonos Ones (Gen 1 and SL) to my Beam (Gen 1) today for surround sound with my LG C8 OLED. The Beam is connected via Arc. Built in TV’s apps only. It’s working great for most things, some movies on Netflix sounded fantastic. Tried some demos on YouTube that were good to. But it doesn’t work with Amazon Video, even though the videos I tried all state they are 5.1 in the info and Sonos app report it as being 5.1. Nothing at all from the rear L/R Ones, just the Beam. Any known issues with Amazon video or this TV? Anything I can try? Am I missing something?
Hi friends, I can’t get the Dolby Atmos effect but not sure it is a hardware problem caused by Sonos or Apple TV 4K, or the software problem cased by the Infuse Pro 7 app on tvOS. So, just share my situations here to see if anyone else facing the same problems with me. DevicesAll the latest models of Sonos & Apple with the latest firmware.Sonos ARC * 1Play 5 *2Apple TV 4K - 2021 versionPlayer: Infuse Pro 7Film source: Blu-ray Images on NAS (Synology DS920+) ProblemSound strange if Apple TV 4K Sound Effect is setup to Dolby Atmos and use Infuse Pro 7 to play the Blu-ray image on the NAS. (Or other video file with audio like AC3 and etc.) Problems: The DIALOGUE can NOT be heard; Sound is strange and the volume is low. The problems occurs in the Apple TV 4K audio is connected through HDMI eARC. (NO problem through AirPlay. And we know that Dolby Atmos can not play through AirPlay) If we turn off the Dolby Atmos in Apple TV 4K, the audio format change to Dolby Digital 5.1, everything i
I currently have the Sonos Arc hooked up to my TV and I would like to add two additional Sonos One SL to have surround sound system. I do also have Sonos Amp present in the house for outdoor speakers, but that’s not related to the TV room set up I am trying to accomplish. When clicking on the Arc within the Sonos app and pressing surround sound, the only option that comes up is to pair it to the Amp. How do I just connect the two Sonos One SL which I current have paired to gather to the Arc to play the TV? I have also created a group but that only works for music and still more manual that I thought it should be. I play music, it first plays on the two that are paired and then I press the group I created and all three speakers play together.
Sonos should allow if you have a home theater setup like Arc, I can separate the Sonos one speakers if I want to use them somewhere else for a while. without having to do trueplay again every time, if in the end I put them back in the same place. the same for the sonos sub.I want to make a stereo pair with the sonos one and the sub, but if I do it even if I put the speakers back in their place, I have to do trueplay again to be able to join them again with the sonos arc.let users be able to detach their speakers and use them in other places and trueplay those speaker combinations and keep them without having to trueplay every time.
I’m expecting my LG Gallery OLED next week. I’ll be mounting it on the wall, as well as my Sonos Arc under it on the wall.If you’re familiar with the Gallery line of TVs, they have a custom wall bracket as well as channels to run the cables behind the TV that allow it to be mounted flush against the wall, so that it literally has a depth of 1 inch or so, looking like a painting on the wall. Similar to the Samsung Frame.I know Sonos recommends that the Arc be mounted 5.5 inches or more below a TV so the sound from the upward firing speakers is not impeded. However, I’d like to mount mine more like 3-4 inches below the TV.I can’t imagine that a TV with 1 inch depth could block the upward firing speakers right?Seems like I should be fine. Agreed?Thanks for any opinions.
Hi,Had a Beam connected for about 1 year with no issues, always turn the TV off with the remote ( Sony Bravia)On turning it on this morning I didn't have any volume, on checking noticed it was set at zero so just turned it up, thinking nothing of it, upon turning the TV on this evening the same thing happened, I only have the Beam connected and that's via HDMI Arc.Also no Alexa.Any ideas ?Thanks.
Why is Sonos not able to address all the stuttering issues? Stutter started on my Sonos a few months ago. It never happened before. Suddenly it happens intermittently in all movies. Some times it’s very bad sometimes it’s for brief periods. i thought it was the streaming on my LGTV. On chance I started reading in Sonos and realized that there seems to be no resolution on why it happens just that people have to submit their diagnostics. So what exactly causes these stuttering issues?
I have a new arc bar all hooked up but when I turn my tv on after a few hours it defaults to speaker then the arc comes in about 5 min later plus , with my cable box plugged into the tv the Sonas app says that I have an hdmi interference issue .i then have to disconnect the cable box hdmi then the sonas plays then I can hook back up the box Do I always need the app up and running when I use the bar ?
We have a new Sonos Beam (Gen 2) hooked up to our Samsung Smart TV. It works fine, but it makes a noise that sounds like a DVD player when a disc loads, kind if that spinning, wind-up sound. This happens when nothing is even playing (TV or music), as well as when when Pandora or my music library is changing songs. Is that normal? It’s kind of bothersome. Something I’ve thought about is that I THINK this happens mainly when I’m casting from my laptop to the TV. Also when I’m playing my music library, which actually comes from my laptop. Is that possible, and if so, is that to be expected?
See attached article. It’s very interesting that Sonos is recognizing the need to focus and also differentiate its home theater products and potential services. Excited to see where this goes but just want it quicker. https://apple.news/AWLpysg2gQ6OfPDFMvMAb_g
I have a really nice new 65” LG OLED and I want to add some nice surround speakers to. I do not have the option to run wires so I decided to add to my Sonos collection and pick up a Beam 2. I likely would have bought an Arc if they were available right now. My question is this...should I order an Arc or should I just add two 1 SL’s to the back of my room to compliment the Beam 2 in the front of the room? I will use this setup for music sometimes but primary for watching movies.
Just posting this for those who may experience a similar problem.I replaced my Sonos Beam with a Sonos Arc.My typical TV viewing is FUBO, Netflix, Prime, and YouTube. We mostly watch FUBO during the day for news and sports and the other services for movies and series at night.The Beam was connected to a Samsung QN90A HDMI eARC port. The Beam worked fine.When I connected the Sonos Arc to the same port, FUBO audio was cutting out for 5-10 seconds every minute or so. Netflix and the rest were fine.I spent two hours on the phone with Sonos with 3 different techs and got nowhere. They tried, but in the end, did not fix the issue. One solution they had me do was to connect the Sonos ARC via an Ethernet cable to my router. I complied but as I thought about, it made no sense.I finally solved the issue by changing the setting on the TV so that the HDMI ARC port was set to regular ARC and not eARC. If I watch anything but FUBO, I switch it back to eARC to get the full sound.I contacted FUBO
I have Arc full home theater setup with an lg cx and apple tv 4k. Watching Paramount + on Apple TV vs LG. The picture is so much better through Apple TV but I get a really soft Stereo PCM setting. If I watch directly through the tv, the picture is not as sharp and I get that garbled mess of a description but it’s loud and sound pretty good but not quite Atmos and it feels like it’s not full. Not looking for a fix necessarily more just thoughts and opinions on why it is what it is.
Hi all, Since upgrading to a 2.4/5ghz auto switching router we had issues with our system and not been able to connect to it at all - despite the devices all being visible on the network. The easy fix was to add a sonos boost to the system which fixed the issues with the two sonos ones used as rear surrounds. The amp however remains an issue, the app can find it but it simply doesn't add the device including when connecting via eirhernet. Sonos support have been no help at all with this issue so hopefully the community can provide a fix?
Tengo la sala de cine con el beam gen1, 2 sonos one y el sub y me estoy planteando comprar el gen2, ¿merece la pena, es notable el cambio en la calidad del sonido?¿qué hago con el gen1, lo puedo instalar en otra habitación desvinculado a la sala de cine como sistema independiente para reproducir únicamente música y no la tv?
I have a Sonia Beam connected to a Samsung TV through the HDMI ARC port.When the beam starts, or when it has been muted for a period, the sound is distorted and crackles for the first few minutes. After a while it returns to normal so it almost seems like it needs to ‘warm up’. Is this normal behaviour?
I see quite a few sporadic messages for intermittent connectivity issue between the Sonos Arc & many Samsung TVs. My symptoms seems to be very similar to others where audio completely cuts out and a lot of restarts later, the audio (eARc) is restored. I’ve tried new cables, different AnyConnect settings, varying audio formats and the issue persists. does anyone have a long term fix for these issues? thanks in advance!
Hi,I understand that the Sonos’s official Atmos home theater setup would be Arc + Sub + One x 2, and One x2 act as the Rear Surrounds, but I do like the visual affect of hiding the Rear Surrounds inside the wall as Sonos Architectural by Sonance In-Wall Speaker can provide. But I am not sure in terms of sound quality as the Rear Surrounds and integration with entire Sonos sound system, would the In-Wall Speakers + Amp at the same level of Sonos One? Any Cons of replacing One with In-Wall Speakers? Appreciate your kind advice in advance!
Hello everyone and well found, I hope you are all well ... given the period …Greetings from Rome and Italy :-)I have a home theater system consisting of Arc and One SL. Now I would like to add Sub Gen. 3I have a question, certainly trivial for you ...Regarding the Sub Gen 3, what is the ideal location for its installation. Is it better "front" (but on the side of the TV), or can you put "side"? Or "oblique"?I know that with the Trueplay setup then it fits the room acoustics, but I would like what the guideline or recommended is.I made some screenshots on the fly numbered from 1 to 4 (forgive the banality, but you should guess the purpose anyway ...), in order to facilitate the discussion to understand what you are referring to Again, I know that the configuration via the App helps, but I would like to know on a technical level what is the ideal position that this Sub should more or less respect in your opinion of Sonos.Thanks a lot for the support! Hello everybody.
Hi folks,Thought I would post some observations I had between the Arc and Playbase in case it would be of help to anyone. Obviously these are my own opinions, others may differ I bought the Playbase a few years ago, about 6 months before it was discontinued. That didn’t feel too great, but it’s still a nice piece of kit and looks great so I stuck with it.I’ve always had a gen2 sub and 2xPlay1s connected to the PB. At various times I have thought it was lacking somewhat in terms of presenting a “full” soundstage from the front of the room. The sub and surrounds do mask that a bit; if I turned off the sub/surrounds in the app (not unpaired) the PB sounded underwhelming. It had been Truplayed at this stage. So I eventually decided it was time for the Arc, and isn’t it a nice piece of kit!I’ve been trying all sorts of side by side comparisons but the first, with the Arc and PB unpaired from any subs/surrounds, the results were surprising. The Playbase, although a narrower soundstage did ha
