I’m considering getting a sonos soundbar, but have a couple of questions. I currently have an old Yamaha YSP2200 Sound Projector. It’s a reasonable (if old) piece of kit, but it’s just so complex and has so many settings and i’m looking for something simpler. The frustration with it is that it’s really better for a nice perfectly shaped room with a setup against the flat part of the wall in the middle.
Therfore I have 2 hopefully simple questions..
- It’s a medium sized lounge (certainly not big), but the TV is in the corner. Is the ARCs ATMOS setup a little lost on a lounge format in this way or would the BEAM be good enough. In other words am i diminishing the benefit of the ARC so may as well get the BEAM. it seemed that way with the yamaha.
- Either way (from what i understand), you still do the trueplay setup. With the yamaha, and it looks like it’s the same here, you set it up for a single seating position. This means the result would vary if you were sitting in different places on two separate couches in an L shape in the opposite corner to the TV. With the Yamaha this seemed the case again, but not sure how it affects the outcome of tuning with the BEAM or ARC. Can you advise how you setup either system with multiple seating positions?
Really appreciate any help to get my head around this.
Please assume that from a TV perspective I have it covered with eARC etc..
