I have a Sonos Roam that is Bluetooth linked to an Amazon firestick for movies outside in my backyard. The firestick is connected to a projector. I grouped my Sonos moves as a stereo pair in the front and a sub and two play 1’s in the back for a more immersive sound. It sounded awesome with no audio latency lag. I'm wondering if I have a beam, sub, and two play 1’s if that is transferable to play audio in a 5.1 set up outside being grouped to the roams Bluetooth or if the Bluetooth portion limits that capability. I've heard of connecting an Apple TV outside to it through all Wi-Fi but i also don't know if the beam isn't connected directly into a tv if it can send out a 5.1 sound over Wi-Fi. Anyone have any insights on these two possible set ups? Thanks in advance, Brian
I’ve had my Sonos Arc for about a year now and it was working just fine up until about a week and a half ago when it just completely stop putting out sound from the TV. I reset the Arc to factory settings and went through the setup process again and everything goes smooth until I get to “Use your TV remote to turn on TV speakers in sound settings.” When I hit test connection it says “TV speakers not connected.” Not sure what to do, I’ve unplugged all other hdmi cables, the TV is an LG C9 if that helps.
I have a couple of old Sonos Play:1s which I used to run from the router via a Sonos Bridge. This stopped working a while back, so I now plug one of the Sonos Play:1s directly into the router. Is there anyone out there who has the Sonos wired product and a Sky Glass TV and if so, have they managed to get their Sonos connected to the internet and working? Many thanks, H
Hi There, Just wondering would it be possible that i could get Dolby Atmos to pay from my Gen 1 Sonos Beam while connecting it to a Sony A90J. Planning to connect Apple TV 4K that support Dolby Atmos too direct to the TV while the Sonos Beam is connected to eArc port. If yes what setting do i need to set to get this to work.
Hi All, My Sonos Beam has randomly started to make a beeping sound almost as if someone was hitting the mute button on/off in rapid succession. I’m a bit lost on what this could be? This even takes place when the TV is off. I’ve tried restarting the device, changing my Wifi channel, unplugging as well as a different HDMI cord to the TV. Has anyone experienced this before?
Hey Guys,I have an Arc with Sub and surrounds and have recently added a Nintendo switch to the setup. I own a PS5 too but the way Nintendo powers down is different to Sony PS5 in the way that PS5 automatically restores my TV source to the last played screen before turning on the console. Nintendo switch on the other hand, asks to choose the Source. Does anyone know what source Input does Sonos Arc use on a Samsung Series 8 TV ( TU8000) ? I see Sonos and Sonos Multimedia server as two of the options in my TVs source input that refer to the Home theatre.

I recently bought a Ray to set up surround sound with my TV. I grouped the Ray with my Sub and a pair of Sonos One speakers (L&R) and True Tuned it. This works great for TV and movies but when I am trying to listen to music, not so much since it seems the majority of the sound is coming from the Ray. Is there a way to have a speaker grouping that is tuned for surround sound (TV) and one grouping that is tuned specifically for music?
I run a split system, usually without issue. However after the Desktop S1 app recently got confused and needed a Reset, one of my Play:5 Gen 1s has become quarantined. It shows in the ZoneGroupState like this:The IP address is correct, but the name is wrong (that is the name of a Beam Gen 2 on my S2 system).If I run the S1 Mobile app, it lists “Den” as “Needs update”. If I try to take the update, it says none is available.How do I get my Play:5 back into a usable state?
I just purchased a home with in-wall speakers and wall controls in about every room. These speaker wires all terminate in the living room near my entertainment cabinet to a Niles HDS-6L Speaker Control Box. I have a Sonos Playbase and three other Play:1 wireless speakers. I simply want to push the Sonos Playbase audio to these in-home speakers. How to do?
I first shared this obsessive chart I made for my own amusement on the Sonos subreddit, and then discovered tonight it was actually conceptually covered already by @AjTrek1’s helpful and extremely thorough speaker comparison charts found here. But I’ll post mine here too in case some still find it useful or it has some unique info. Corrections and suggestions are welcome.(After I posted it on the Sonos subreddit, another contributor jumped in and provided many useful notes, as well as future product predictions. Those parts are not mine and while the notes sound correct, I haven’t verified them, and of course the speculative parts aren’t verifiable at all.)Needless to say this is miles from official, but I believe it’s accurate.Anyhoo, here it is: Sonos Compatibility and Features ChartCheers,Ivan.
Hi all,I have just moved into a new home and want to get a Sonos Sub and either Beam or Arc to improve my TV audio. I don’t mind paying the extra for the Arc but am worried it might not agree with my room shape with some of the surround effects. Ceiling height is standard at around 8ft, but we are in a room which has been made open plan and we are using half of it for TV/Sofa so while it’s almost perfect square on 3 sides, the left side walls are a lot further away. Will this cause issues with the sound? Have attached a rough sketch of the room shape.Thanks for any help!
Hi, I'm looking to join to Sonos ecosystem and have found 2 offers and am wondering which is better. Option 1: 2 play 1s and a play 3 Option 2: 2 play 5s (gen 1)Mostly will be used for listening to music (techno and rap) and also for watching tv.From what I've read the play 5 gen 1s are significantly worse than the gen 2s and any comparisons I can find between 2 play 1s and play 5 (gen 1) say the plays are better due to the stereo pair. But if I had a pair of play 5 (gen 1) that would negate this point so I'm not sure which option I should choose.Thanks.
Guys.See attached my floor plan for the Ground Floor. I have a separate reception and kitchen area.How should I set up my in ceiling speakers for each of these rooms? Few important points to note:Reception Room will have the TV on the left wall Kitchen will have an island in the centre and dining table near the window.Please help.Thank you.
I’d like to replace my existing NETGEAR Router which seems to be dying with a new Nighthawk router. Is the AX2700 a good choice. I already own a Nighthawk EAX780 AX6000 extender and i notice SONOS complains about that all the time, and I’d like to not make the problem worse.
Buenas, Estoy pensando en adquirir una barra Sonos arc, sin embargo mi salón tiene una particularidad, y es que el techo además de ser más alto de lo habitual, está abuhardillado, por lo que no sé si esto podría afectar a la experiencia atmos. La inclinación es ascendente de izquierda a derecha del mueble de la televisión. Gracias.
