Hi guys, I have recently purchased a Sony A95K O-LED tv and have been looking at sound bars. The best value for money it seems is the Sony HTZF9 which minimal problems it seems. Now I have been looking to get the Sonos Arc, has anyone had any experience in pairing the Arc with the Sony tv? Is it worthwhile? Any problems? Can I still utilise the 5:1 surround via the bar and the tv, and is it compatible? Thanks guys.

Hi @John95k 

Welcome to the Sonos Community!

I cannot speak from personal experience, but we’re not aware of any compatibility issues with that TV.

Hopefully, someone from the community with that TV will chime in - my posting here will get this thread back in the Recently Active list.

Thank you very much for your help

I have paired the A95K with Arc and One SL and it works well. Voices sounded a bit lighter than I was used to with my previous Sony tv that had built in side speakers but that was slightly improved by voice enhancement button. I did use it without the rear speakers for a few days and it sounded really good although I didn’t notice the surround effect as clearly without dedicated rear surrounds.
 

It would be even better if Sonos added a full graphic equaliser to help adjust the sound specifically to your room. Allowed you to add additional side and overhead speakers to the setup to further improve Atmos. Added DTS:X. And had some way to add an additional HDMI port, since I now only have one 2.1 port left for streamers and can only add 3 inputs to the TV.
