     My goal is to find a home sound solution that doesnt add a remote.   Is there a soundbar that you can configure to turn on when sound starts being transmitted to it? I can have the volume controlled on my apple tv.   If that is impossible I'll settle for controlling it with an app on my...

    Okay guys I need some help. I have started out deciding on the audio distribution in my house (Airplay vs. Sonos) and decided to go with Sonos. I have 73" Mitsubish TV I purchased a while ago which is great except it only has coax audio output (and I'm not sure if it supports DD5.1 out). I...

    I have a Sonos 5.1 audio setup (PlayBar, Sub, and two Play:1's). Dolby Digital Plus is not compatible with Sonos, so I get no audio for anything being delivered in DD+. I was hoping to avoid the need for a receiver, but as Netflix, VUDU, and other streaming services migrate towards DD+, it's...

    Hi I'm looking to simplify our system and eliminate wires but still maintain the best sound quality I can. I currently have an HK 3700 receiver, Acoustimas 16 speakers & sub, and a Samsung 55f8000 tv. I'm leaning toward the Sony soundbar over the sonos (play bar, sub, and two Play 1s) but not...

    Hi Guy's, I am hoping somebody may be able to assist me in setting up my recently acquired very expensive underwhelming Sonos Playbar which I have hooked up to my KDL46-HX850. I have it connected via the optical out from the Sony (obviously) but so far to say that I am undewhelmed by the...

    We have a UN65F7100 and a Sonos Playbar hooked up. After some finagling, I was able to defeat the message about the TV having External Speakers and the need to adjust the volume separately, but the message is only defeated when watching TV. When using one of the apps, like Netflix, adjusting...

     the more im confused.   I have a basement reno being completed in about 5 weeks, and am outfitting my entertainment area.   I bought a  sharp 70le757u. I had my eyes on the Sonos Playbar and Sub, but the Sonos doesn't decode DTS. I am not much of a movie watcher, I anticipated watching...

     Check it out, soundbars now have their own review category on AVS . I wrote the first one—it was a review of the Sonos PlayBar. For anyone who feels up to it, a review doesn't have to be long—are you excited about your new soundbar? Let everyone know by writing about it. If it's a great...

    I'm moving away from Apple Airplay and while I like Sonos a lot I wonder if there is anything I can build with multiple PC's to mimic a Sonos system? Features I'm looking to mimic are controlling multiple speakers at once and controlling them from a mobile device. Thanks

    Hello all, thank you for reading. I have been reading all over and am stumped. I have an HTPC which runs all tv and movies and music. I also have a SONOS 5.1 system (Playbar Sub, and 2 Play 3's). Now the obvious problem is the optical input to the playbar. If i don't use my receiver the...

    Does anyone experience intermittent audio dropouts on DIRECTV on Dolby Digital 5.1? In my case the dropouts are with the Sonos Playbar on Dolby Digital 5.1 broadcasts? I'm trying to determine if it's a DIRECTV problem or an issue with my Soundbar? I have a Directv HR24 connected via an optical...

    I used to own a 5.1 system and although I loved it but my fiancee hated speakers on the walls therefore I had to sell the system and have to make the switch to a sound bar system. I am looking for something that is as close to real surround sound as possible. I do not really have a budget...
