Hi, hoping someone can help me here. I got a new tv and arc last week. The arc is connected to the tv ok, occasionally it shows on the app on its own (without me seeing the other speakers) but more often I can see the pre arc system with my speakers in various rooms, but no arc! How do I get everything in the same place so I can get surround sound set up with the arc, play music when tv isn’t on etc? Thanks in advance for your help! Iain
HT/living room: beam + sub mini + one x 2Kitchen: one x 2Group both rooms so both will hear the TV but my understanding is that there will be a delay in the kitchen. My living room and kitchen are quite close to each other so I’m sure I will be hearing the echoing. Question is can I turn the living room’s volume to zero to avoid the echoing while I am in the kitchen? I can see the tv from the kitchen but am far away that I won’t notice any video/audio syncing issues.. Thanks
Please could someone kindly help.. regarding the Era300 wall mounts….are they suitable for rear wall position AND side wall positioning? From looking at the photos of them they look like rear wall only, unless of course there’s sufficient ‘swivel’ movement to still leave a 8” gap between the side edge of the speaker and the wall.thank you
Hi, I currently have a Sonos One but we want to by a Sonos Beam for the TV. I want both of these speakers to play the same music at the same time using amazon music\Alexa. I also want the beam to be a TV speaker on its own for TV use when needed. Is it as simple as just grouping the 2 together in the app? At the moment when I ask an Alexa device (Echo) to play music, the default speaker is the Sonos. With 2 Sonos speakers grouped will this still work in the same way and just play through both beam and Sonos one?Thanks!
Hi have a new Samsung Frame TV in the living room and the one connect box is in the closed cabinet right next to the TV. My Sonos AMP set up is inside my media room which is on the other side of the house from the living room. The Sonos AMP is currently connected to my 5 ceiling speakers in the living room. That is working perfectly.Now I want to get the Sonos Amp connected to my Samsung frame so I can run the TV audio to the ceiling speakers. The one connect is in the cabinet next to the TV and inside the cabinet I have a RG6 coaxial female port and then I have a Cat6 port. Both of these hook ups run directly into the media room across the house where my Sonos amp is stored. I need to use either the coaxial hook up or the CAT6 hook up but I cannot figure out the best set up.Currently I have tried this set up:I plugged an optical audio cable into the Samsung one connect box and put the other end in this switch that I found on Amazon (Optical-to-Coaxial or Coax-to-Optical Digital Audio
So I have a sonos beam and am going to buy a sonos sub Gen 3. but I *also* have an existing, fairly old, denon AVR and 5.1 surround sound system with ceiling speakers (but currently no sub).Most of the time I just use the beam because the ceiling speakers are right under the kids beds.but I do sometimes like to use the ceiling speakers instead, for watching movies with proper surround sound.what I was wondering is if there is any way to use the sub as the bass with the existing system, without the beam? Maybe with a sonos port but not quite sure how?the beam receives the exact same audio input as the AVR (via HDMI) so the sound data would already be inside the sonos system, if you get me.
I have a Samsung UE37D6530 TV and have just connected a Beam 2 via HDMI ARC.However, I can only get Stereo PCM 2.0The TV sound options are greyed out (other than PCM)Anytime+ (HDMI CEC) is on.Is there a way I can get something better than stereo PCM?Am I missing something, or is it just that the TV is a bit too old?
Hi, I have an Intergra DRX-5.2 (works with sonos) with a sonos connect attached to the CD input. There is also several other speakers in the sonos system. Recently the Connect has stopped switching ON the Integra. Sonos still plays through the receiver but i need to turn it on manually and select the CD input.All devices are hardwired. In the Works with Sonos settings menu of the Integra it lists connected device with the correct IP adres,Any suggestions
Hi, title says it all, my home theater is in a big room (actually living room and tv room) and my couch is about in the middle of this room.I’m considering replacing the two ones SL by two era 300, but I’d much prefer them being mounted on the wall behind me rather than sitting on stands right behind my couch (cables, etc…)So my question is: is 3 meters too far away from my couch?More over, I’ll have to put them a bit higher than ears level otherwise there will be some obstacles in the way (table and chairs of my living room), will it still be all right for sound?There will be plenty of room around each of them though.Thanks in advance for your replies and insights about my questions!
Hello, I have a Sonos Beam Gen 2, 2 Sonos One, Sub Mini and I don't have enough space to put the Sonos ones as rears because my room is too small so I have them on either side of the beam gen 2. My question regarding this is how does it affect the sound? Does the Beam use the extra outputs to enhance the sound coming-out for better stereo? Does it just simply out but the same audio that already coming out of the beam? I ask this because I'm thinking of buying the era 100 but i would like to know how this paring works first.
I have an Amp connected to in-ceiling speakers and a Beam. Everything is currently configured as a home theatre with the Amp wired speakers acting as surrounds. This is all in our living room in the main area of the house. Is there a way to have two setups on that system? One for use as a home theatre, and another for music (that would use the ceiling speakers more fully)?
My TV setup is the Arc, a Sub and a couple of Ones for the back channels. Every now and then I wander into my kitchen which is just far enough away that the sound does not carry well. I’d like to add another One to the system that effectively replicates the TV sound (center channel, specifically, as that’s where the dialogue seems to be most of the time). I can create a Group for this, but every time I turn the TV off and back on, the group breaks. Is there a way to create a permanent group for the TV sound? The Arc is the key component here I think, connected to the TV by eHDMI.
I have a Samsung TV that sends an IR signal for volume control out to the room. It has worked flawlessly for years, including 3 years in it's current house and set up. About 2 months ago, it stopped working unless I stand up in front of the TV to reflect the IR back to the IR sensor. While sitting, or off to the side, it no longer works. Sonos said that set up was not supported, they only support an IR remote, and that it might work for years and then stop, which it did.Anyone else have a similar setup, have a similar issue and find a solution for it?
Okay: I am interested in upgrading my current Play:3 surrounds to Era300’s.Price per Era300 €499, nice surprise: a set is €50 off to €948Bummer: when I use my upgrade-program-voucher: the price reverts to €999 Sure: I get it: the conditions say: ‘a voucher cannot be combined with other offers’ but it still does not make sense really that someone who bought 2 Play:300’s and upgrades to a set you lose the set-price.
I have not a concrete issue, but just a feeling that something didnt go well during inital setup of my first Sonos product. So im happy if someone can just confirm the info below:Hi, I just got the Beam (gen2) for my Samsung The Frame (2021), and Im using eARC. I don’t know if I have set the Beam up correctly or not (the manuals online are a little unspecific imo). So I just want to know if everything is correct: 1: When doing the Universal remote setup, the TV didnt recognize the Beam, so I had to type it in. The “power-test” did not work, but the manual online said to just hit yes. So I did. I guess thats correct, because its “always on”?2: The Beam is working; its receiving sound and I can control the volume with my remote. BUT the text to the left on the TV screen does not say Sonos or Beam, but “Receiver HDMI-eARC”, and there is no number to indicate what level the volume is at. Is that the way its meant to be? I have a feeling that somethings off. But could find anything by searc
I currently have 2 - 5’s and a sub that I use for listening to music in one room and a separate TV room for watching movies. I plan on combining all into one room as I don’t listen to music and watch movies at the same time. I would like to incorporate the 2 - 5’s, Sub, and possibly a Ray/Beam/Arc with a new TV. When watching movies all systems would be used, when listening to music the Ray/Beam/Arc would be off (the only reason being, I like certain music LOUD and not sure if a soundbar should be in the mix?? Also not sure what soundbar would pair best with the existing 5’s?Or, should I look for a tv with better sound and use it as the soundbar with the 5’s and Sub? My current TV doesn’t have Bluetooth, but I’m assuming I can connect the 5’s and Sub through that if I forego the soundbar for the tv sound?Also I run everything through a Roku Ultra with most music coming through either Spotify on the Roku or a folder off a local NAS drive. Video comes from apps on the Roku...Netflix, Pri
