I was loving Sonos, bought Play:3, then Playbar, then One, then 2 new Onew with aim to set up as satellites in theater/surround sound.
But I never expect that pairing 2 satellite One to Playbar witll work ONLY when Dolby Digitial audio source is on the optical input to Playbar!
Of course I understand that full real surround I can get only on DD source, but I expect that even without DD source Sonos will somehow deal with it, at least as my 10 years old Sony system did.
Without DD source satellites are fully dumb and useless.
I am disappointed because mostly I use Sonos with Spotify and Netflix which don't support DD
So it seems only way to use Satellites is to pair them together as stereo and group with Sonos playbar. Poor.
That's true right? Nothing wrong with my config and approach?
My goal was to buy Sonos SUB in next step. But now I am concerned.
Will SUB also work only with DD source ?
Will I take benefit of it when using Spotify or Netflix streaming (vie Chromecast) ?
