I have had the playbar and recently added the sub, now due to various circumstances beyond my control haven't had the chance to fully have these up and running but I have had a chance to test them out, and I was really pleased.
Naturally I was looking to add some play 1s to the mix and enjoy a proper 5.1. The penny dropped. Not in my case because I decided against purchasing them. See I was not aware that sonos does not offer true 5.1 at the time of purchasing. It was only when I decided to buy the 1s that I found out. Yes I can buy this TV, couple it with that bluray and use this switch and then I can make it work somehow. But isn't the whole point of having a sonos system, simplicity?
Having to have to change my whole media centre to accommodate sonos sounds anything but!! Having read on this topic I realised that sonos have a different idea to most people on home theatre and look quite set in their ways.
So it saddens me that I will have to give up wireless and the perceived simplicity of sonos for a traditional receiver and 5.1, or another Soundbar that decoders the codecs I need.
I don't mean to come on here and bash sonos especially on my first post. But I want my voice to be heard. If you guys just accept this, nothing will happen(I know it's been discussed for years) . Openly speak out and hopefully one day it will fall on ears that have been treated for ear wax.
