I've got a Playbar connected to my TV paired with 2 Play 1s as surround (no sub)
My PC used to be connected to a half decent Sony surround amp via toslink with 5.0 speakers. Only I wasn't using it - I was using headphones through a USB DAC 99% of the time. I've also got 2x Play 1s in my study for music.
I think I still want my PC to have speakers, so I'm thinking.…
I've got my upgrade discount to use. I could replace the Playbar connected to the TV with a Beam gen 2. I can't see how I can justify (room size?) or really afford (wife) an Arc.
I then use the playbar toslinked to my PC. It can also replace to 2 x play 1s, which are then spare.
Any downsides?? How much of a downgrade / upgrade will a beam be compared to the playbar?
That leaves me with some spares....
How steam proof are Play 1s?? I've got a "spare" play 5 that I use around the bathroom (not in) and I kind of think a pair of 1s on the floor in the bathroom might be better? (obviously I could use the play 1s as surround speakers for my PC - but given the lack of use the old system had...)
Then need to figure out what to do with the play 5... And my amp and surround speakers. Sell it? Sell my move too? Get a couple of Roams? Meh. Its a bit of a bitty, mismatched setup.
