I plan to acquire the sonos arc and own a Samsung q950r 2019 TV.
This TV isn’t eARC (perhaps in the future), but is “atmos compatible”, with 2.1 hdmi ports.
This is not quite clear what will happen (atmos or not atmos?) :
- if I have a atmos source (4K BD, apple tv, PS5) plugged on one hdmi port and sonos ARC on ARC hdmi
- if i stream from one of the TV apps (netflix, disney+….) (but there i guess it will be loss atmos = DD+?)
Your answer for the passthrough atmos is very important and will lead to a sad or not decision of buying this bar.
Thank you very much for you answer,

You’ve had two answers from a user on this user forum. You are asking a lot: even if Sonos would answer you I, the passthrough is a Samsung function not a Sonos one. The question what different devices deliver as output to your TV can only be answered by their manufacturers. I’ve read elsewhere that recent Samsung TV’s do not pass through TrueHD, but do pass through DD+, that can use compressed Atmos. As
