Hello all,At https://support.sonos.com/en-us/article/surround-sound-guidelines-and-limitations there is the statement “related models like One and One SL can be used together as surround speakers” without specifying which exact models are related. From that article, and searching through the forums, it appears to me that the following two sets of models are considered related, that is, you can mix them together for surround: One (Gen 2), One (Gen 1), One SL (rev 1 and 2)(forums seem to suggest Gen 1 and Gen 2 can be mixed, and article says One SL is related) SYMFONISK Floor Lamp, SYMFONISK Table Lamp (Gen 2)(explicitly noted in footnote 2 of the article) SYMFONISK Bookshelf (Gen 1), SYMFONISK Bookshelf (Gen 2)(not sure of this; basing this on forum reports that you can stereo pair them) Not related for surround purposes, despite having the same speaker hardware (basing this on forum reports that you can’t stereo pair them):Play:5 (Gen 2), Five Is this correct? Any errors Are there any
I’m considering buying a Sonos Arc, and feeding TV audio to it with the optical connection, but I’d like to get an answer to this question: According to the user manual, you can “program a TV remote to control the Sonos volume”, however it also says that “Only one remote can be programmed to control the Sonos home theater speaker at a time.”. I will need to control the volume with either of 2 remotes; however, one of them is a programmable which emits the same control codes as the other, with regard to raising, lowering, or muting the TV volume. My interpretation of what is going on when you “program a TV remote to control the Sonos volume” is that the Sonos is learning what codes the remote uses for the volume commands, and that therefore any number of different remotes could be used for volume, as long as they send the same volume codes.Are my assumptions correct, and is anyone successfully doing this? Thank you.
I have an Arc as front TV speakers and I use an Amp with 2 passive speakers as satellites. I would also like to be able to use the Amp independently to listen to music when I am not watching TV.However the Amp disappears from the list of available speakers as soon as I add it as a satellite to the Arc. I then have to manually remove the Amp from the Arc to be able to use is independently again.Autoplay ungroup is turned on, but does nothing.Is there a way to have the Amp support both setups (satellites / music) alternatively without having to change the configuration every time?
Hello,I have Sonos speakers: 2 Play 1one, a Sub and a Playbar. I added the hardware called Port from Sonos so that my Sonos hardware communicates in AirPlay from Apple with my MacBook pro and my HomePod.Since the connection of this new material, the sound gets chopped when I use my speakers to listen to the sound of the television which is an LG OLED55C6V.AEK. Before the addition of this new material, I used the option: "Audio output (Optical/HDMI ARC)" of the television. The technician who installed the Port advised me to continue using this option.How should I set up my Sonos equipment so that the sound is heard clearly, without hatching?Thanks.
I have a S1 setup, of which some parts are S2 compatibe, and some not.I am happy with this. I am operating this with the S1 app on my iPad.I want to buy a beam, gen 2. This requires S2. I accept that this willbe an isolated system.Can I install this by just installing the S2 app, and adding the new beam?
I have 4 play one and 1 playbar . Recently upgraded to 2 Sonos one and a sub mini and disconnected my existing play one I tried to group the playbar with Sonos one and sub mini to get a 5.1 but it’s not working . I have grouped Sonos one and sub mini as one unit and playbar as another. everytime I pay Tv or music I try to group the two but it’s not working . Only playbar works and it plays only on playbar how to rectify this
Im using an arc for the tv, four in ceiling speakers for surround to an amp and would like to have a in ceiling sub connected possibly into another amp, is this possible, haven't tried to set it up yet, i know when you use your amp for surround you can't use your own sub but if I put another amp in the system could this work
I am changing over from a component system to SONOS. I already have a Sonos ARC with Sub (Gen 3) working fine but need to add the ceiling installed and wired Polk Audio RC 80i as surround. From what I have read, the Sonos Amp is what I need next, but the specs say the Amp uses eARC from the TV. The ARC soundbar is already using that eARC from the LG TV. How do I get both to use the same eARC plug? I want to make sure I’m getting the proper product before I buy something that won’t work with my current situation. Also, when I setup the ARC and Sub, it didn’t want to work with the TV and come on when we turn on the TV. To solve that issue, I now leave the ARC and Sub on all the time. Is that the correct way to do things or am I missing something? Thanks in advance.
The Playbar hooked to my tv via optical will cut out when Hulu goes to commercial and then doesn’t come back. Turning the tv off and on fixes it but it is pretty annoying. I’ve updated, changed cables, and it’s done it through different 2 Roku devices. thought?
I have an arc connected to a tv and wired to a router. I have 2 Sonos, One’s and surrounds, and a sub, all of with are not wired. Until four days ago, everything was fine, then the One’s and sub stopped playing and ungrouped from the arc. I tried multiple things to get them to regroup and play, but the only thing that worked was to disable the arc’s wifi. As I’ve read, this is not the optimal way to connect surrounds. So why would enabling the wifi on the arc cause the surround and One’s to ungroup and stop working?
Just wondering if anyone knows if it possible to connect my surrounds (2x Sonos Ones) to both my Amp and Arc. I will try and explain - they are in the same location and I only use the Amp and Arc separately so I would like to be able to have the surrounds paired with both. So when I play my Amp I have the surrounds connected and the same when I use the Arc. Hope that makes sense?! Thanks very much.
I have been trying to connect my sub gen 3 to my existing media room which has 2 Sonos five speakers. It completes the set up but it never appears in my system and I cannot get it to connect. I have tried resetting it several time and reinstalling but nothing works. What else can I do? Thanks
My sub will connect to the Playbar and everything seems fine except literally no sound is coming out. Yes, I have toggled the sub on/off button in the app! However the Sub works if I connect it to speakers elsewhere in the house. Move the Sub back to the Playbar and it’s silent again. Unplugged the Sub and Playbar many times hoping that would reset it somehow. No luck!All software is updated. Regardless of configuration, the Sub shows up in “About My System” without any red flags I can see.
Samsung TV only supported PCM and DTS Neo 2.5.AppleTV 4th Gen (A1625) does not have optical output.Sonos S1 Playbar and Surround Sound only support Dolby Digital.Solution: Use J-Tech Digital (JTDAT5CH) and digital Optical Output set to 5.1 to Playbar. Connect HDMI Output to Samsung TV.Works great.
I have a projector in the TV room I currently send audio to a BT speaker via a transmitter directly to the speaker. I have a pair of SONOS play 5's, which do not have BT. Is it possible to send the audio signal through the BT transmitter to the SONOS with a BT receiver or something better? Thanks for the help.
