Hello,

 

I recently purchased the Beam Gen 2 and I cannot set it up as a stereo pair sync with the Play 1. I can press the play button on the Play 1 and will play sound from the Beam but they are slightly out of sync and I need to adjust them independently. Anyone know how to rectify this? Thanks

With a TV source, there will always be a delay when grouping a Play:1 with the Beam. They should play in sync with music when grouped.

Only way to have them in sync for TV is to have two Play:1s and add them as surrounds to the Beam. This will then allow the remote to control volume on all speakers as they are treated as one room, but the Play:1s will only output the surround channels, not the sound output you get from grouping.

Are you trying to make a stereo pair out of one Beam and one Play:1?

This is not possible, and rightly so; as it would sound terrible. 

Thank you for your help Mr T! Much appreciated.
