I’ve got a question regarding the new eARC feature on the Sonos Arc & a new eARC compatible TV. With these two components it is my understanding that I should be able to achieve Dolby Atmos playback. My main question involves my set up. I’m building a new house now and am in the planning stages of my AV set-up. Can someone please confirm or correct my thoughts here. I’m going to have a eARC compatible TV in my living room with a Sonos Arc connected to it below. I will connect the Sonos ARC to the TV via a eARC compatible HDMI 2.1 cable for my audio. The TV will then be connected to a HDMI splitter in another room; the splitter will be connected to the cable box. The splitter is so I can get the same picture on multiple TV’s in different rooms that I’m not going to be trying to utilize eARC or Dolby Atmos. All other HDMI connections will all be standard ARC compatible 2.0 HDMI’s other than the HDMI 2.1 from the Sonos Arc to the Living room TV. I will also have two Sonos In-Ceiling speakers in the rear connected to a Sonos AMP for the rear surrounds. With this set up am I 100% taking advantage of the new Dolby Atmos playback for the Sonos Arc or are all of these other connections/components going to effect it? My understanding is simply having the eARC compatible HDMI 2.1 from the eARc to to the Sonos Arc is all I need, but wasn’t sure. Thanks in advance!
