Hello SONOS Community!
Just like many of you, I have more SONOS products than is probably acceptable. The big one I don’t have is ARC. I, of course, understand that no matter what I say next, the right answer is that I should buy it. However, there is this strange voice in my head that claims to be something called “common sense” that just wouldn’t shut up, so I need help clearing a few things up.
- Something that SONOS and TV manufacturer support have both been supremely unhelpful with... I have the 2018 LG C7 OLED TV. Checked the manual, googled around, contacted LG just to ask if the TV has Arc or eArc. The rep replied saying the TV has a “standard 2.1 Arc HDMI”. Which is, like, is it standard or 2.1? Decided to confirm with SONOS and even told them how unhelpful LG rep was and all I got was a canned reply saying to check with the manufacturer. Thanks. So, anyway, does anyone know if LG OLEDs (and 2018 specifically) have Arc or eArc?
- If the sound from the ARC’s up-facing speakers supposed to bounce off the ceiling, am I way off in thinking that one would not get the best performance from high and/or sloped ceilings?
- Say the answers for #1 and 2 above from the always super helpful community suggest I should probably not by ARC, but I still do, what should I do with my Playbar? I do have a 7.2 set-up in the basement running on a Pioneer VSX-LX503 AVR. Would I be able to somehow fit the Playbar into that to use instead of the current center channel? What additional components would I need for that?
