I have already read a few topics about people who are disappointed by the width of the front stage on the Sonos beam.
I bought it thinking i could just add left and right speakers, i didn't notice that it was only left and right SURROUND speakers you can add.
so i was thinking of solutions, and i don't want to get a wired system and then something like a connect to wifi enable it, it kinda defeats the point.
so my idea was this:
run the Sonos Beam from the HDMI Arc as it is now, but add a Sonos amp via optical for left and right front channels. OR if its possible to split the arc signal, then run both from the arc.
because both devices are "wired" this should get around the delay echo when trying to do the same thing wirelessly.
so a few questions:
can the beam and amp be used together on the same arc?
can the beam and amp be used together on both arc and optical?
is there any chance of delays before i throw a ridiculous amount of money at an amp and a set of front speakers only to find out it wont work?
any info would be great, i can't justify spending money on this idea without knowing its going to work
