Not really sure what your real question is, but setting up the Arc with a pair of Sonos Ones and a SUB would be optimal.


Thank you airgetlam.

i have both pairs play 5 and Sonos ones. Currently using ones with Playbar .

which is best setup ? as I heard that play 5 has better mid range 

reason I ask as may change setup when arc turns up just getting advice opinions etc


thanks for you reply appreciate it

Most people consider the PLAY:5 as overkill as surround speakers, unless you’re streaming a lot music rather than TV input.
