So I first apologize because I know this topic has been asked repeatedly, but this time it’s a little different…… Is it possible to get Atmos quality sound if the speakers were positioned closer to the ceiling? In my living room we have 20 foot ceilings (not vaulted), but we also have a ledge that goes up about 12 feet. I wasn’t sure if being higher would help reduce the distance for the up-firing speakers? Thoughts? Or does anyone have suggestions for another sound system at that would be a better fit for my room type? Oh we also have a Sony TV with the acoustic surface so the sound projects directly from the screen. Not sure if that would help with choosing a sound system.
Hello everyone!I am planning to buy a Sonos system but I have a lots of doubts about what to get, hope you can help me.The system is for a house bar, we play everything trough the TV (Youtube, spotify, netflix, sport games in the TV, etc) we do not watch movies, just music videos in youtube or just music from spotify, the sustem will be for music; so I am planning to use an ARC with the sub for it, also I want to add two ones but no to use them as sorrounds, my question is: This set up would work good for music? It would be loud and clear? What if I change the ones with two fives, this would sound good with the arc? Is this set up Im planning to get a good idea or it would be better to use an amp with regular speakers? Hope you could help me, thanks in advance! PS: One of the reasons I am thinking to get sonos is that I also want to have the option to add more speakers in another space of the house where I could play the same music of the bar at the same time.Remember, the main or onl

Was considering to upgrade my system with a new arc and gen3 subwoofer. Decided to replace my Samsung android phone with an Apple iphone to use Trueplay. However after purchasing a SE 2022 found that this is as yet not supported by Sonos. After e-mailing and a phone call to sonos support was informed they do not release dates for upgradesbut will be coming soon and to use a friends iphone for trueplay!! These phones were released March this year. Maybe in another year or two Sonos will support this model.Now bought a Sony HT-A9, which supports all formats and uses a remote for callibration. The sound is amazing for both TV\ radio. So muchso just bought the new sony A90K TV.Will now never buy another sonos product. Current system is relegated to the pare room with my old smaller tv.Rest in Peace sonos Long live Sony products.
I want to install two TV’s outdoors that are very close to each other (less than 10’ and facing different directions). I would ideally like the idea of having both TV’s play the same video and audio signal (with no human detectable delay) but potentially play separate signals. I thought I would deploy it like this:*HDMI Splitter: Input=FireStick1. Output1=TV1 HDMI1, Output2=TV2 HDMI1** So far just looking at a 4K powered splitter on Monoprice.com that has good reviews. Not sure if this brand/model is critical as long as it does proper say 4K@60hz or whatever the requirement is?*TV1*HDMI1 input=Output1 from HDMI splitter described below*TV2*HDMI1 input=Output from HDMI splitter near TV1HDMI2 input=FireStick2This configuration allows me to set both TV’s to HDMI1 and use the remote for FireStick1 to see and hear the same audio. If I want to have the TV’s broadcast different signals (perhaps one with audio muted), I can simply switch them both to HDMI2 and use two separate FireStick r
I have a simple question: I would like to know which TV is best for our sonos system. I have a TCL, who has problems with lip sync. And it's time to get a new tv. I would really like to get some opinions based on your usage please? My system is simple, Sonos Beam gen 1, pair of Sonos play 1. And I'm going to buy a mini Sub. Possibly I will sell the beam, to get a Beam gen. 2 with Dolby Atmos, so it would be nice to have a TV with Atmos too. Thanks
It seems the way upgrade credit is applied has changed very recently - now the credit only applies to one item in your basket - previously I was seeing a discount applied to all items in my basket. I was considering buying an amp and a sub mini with my 30% credit but it now only applies to the most expensive item in the basket (e.g. just the amp). Has this change been announced by Sonos anywhere?
I have a Pro-Ject turntable hooked up to my Sonos 5, which plays happily through my other Sonos speakers.So clearly it’s getting converted to digital somewhere along the way – my question is does anyone know how to tap into this digital stream so I can get the audio into my Mac? I have a bunch of records I made when I was a young lad that I’d like to import into Logic and mess around with – but I really don’t want to have to buy a new USB turntable just for that!
Hi, I have a pretty simple issue which became complex enough to ask the forum. I have few SONOS speakers from IKEA (shelf and lamps) and want to connect them to my TCL TV (not Roku). The aim is to use a speaker from TV and SONOS (not SONOS only). I tried to find speakers via same WiFi - that didn`t worked. I tried to connect SONOS speakers via Apple TV (airplay) - that didn`t work, and as far as I read in that case you can only connect SONOS speakers, but TV speaker won`t work together. I can buy BEAM or RAY SONOS speaker - but as far as I`ve read I won`t be able to use my TV speaker together with other SONOS speakers. So, what is the simplest (and cheapest) solution to use in the same time fabulous TV speaker with Dolby Atmost, with IKEA SONOS speakers as rear speakers (without delay between TV and SONOS speakers) ?
Hello all. I’m working to rip an old non-functional crestron system out and simplify. What we haverack with 3x gen1 sonos zone units, ie unamplified devices that go into a crestron audio matrix. Plan to remove all of this and replace with 3x of the newer ‘AMP’ models. These run to 3 speaker zones.2x Direct TV receivers in the rack, routed through crestron. Looking for options here. Willing to move DTV boxes to each TV, but then how to get audio into Sonos. ‘Port’ units? What if I put a soundbar in at the TV and used that for input, can sonos take input on the sound bar and distribute it to the other speakers etc? ie, DTV->Arc->AMP1 and AMP2 and a Sonos One?Alternatively, keep DTV in the rack and figure out how to stream the video to each TV. Can’t figure out if there is an ‘on net’ streamer for DTV i can use or not. If they are in the rack, can I double duty the AMPs as inputs? For instance, DTV1→AMP1 then stream anywhere. And.. if so… can the AMP’s input be separate
I have set up an TV in my bedroom. The room is large and I would like speakers closer to my bed so I don’t wake up chidren. Can I use a Ray soundbar turned low/off and have two One speakers next to the bed (left and right)? Thank you
I’m looking to get a subwoofer for my beam gen 2, but I keep reading about the mini sub Sonos will allegedly release later this year, according to ARS Technica:https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2022/08/want-a-cheaper-sonos-subwoofer-youll-have-to-wait-even-longer/This system will be placed in a room that’s about 10’x10’, so the gen 3 at full price seems overkill, but what are my options? If I get a used gen 2 at a good price, then maybe it’ll be worth it. I’d like to get a mini sub version, but who knows when or even if it’ll actually release. What do you all suggest?
