Professional installation

Do I have to plug Arc in?
Yes. Sonos Arc must be connected to a power source. It will also need to be connected to your TV to receive the TV audio signal.
Can I use the Sonos S1 Controller with Arc?
Arc is only compatible with Sonos S2. Learn more about this new app and operating system here.
Can I mount Arc to the wall?
Yes. The Sonos Wall Mount for Arc is recommended for the best listening experience. You can find it here.
What is Dolby Atmos?
Dolby Atmos is an object-based format for surround sound that designates different sounds to specific places in the room rather than channels, creating a more realistic experience by dynamically incorporating height, surround, and front channels.
How does Dolby Atmos work with Arc?
Arc supports increased bandwidth for the higher quality audio of Dolby Atmos. It also includes upwards-firing speaker drivers that act as height channels, reflecting sound off your ceiling for additional dimension.
How do I know I'm getting Atmos sound?
Getting Atmos sound is dependent on the source material, as well as the TV passing an Atmos signal through the HDMI port. If Arc is receiving an Atmos signal, we will display that within the Sonos App on the "Now Playing" screen as well as within the settings portion of our app.
Do I still need surrounds and Sub with Atmos?
No; adding surrounds and Sub will provide the best sound experience Sonos has to offer, but you can get an Atmos experience with just Sonos Arc.
Which Sonos speakers work as surrounds?
A matching pair of the following speakers will work as surrounds: Sonos One (including SL), Sonos Five, Play:1, Play:3, and Play:5 (Gen 2). You can also use Amp to power in-wall or in-ceiling speakers as surrounds.
Which generations of Sub will work with Arc?
All generations of Sub will work with Arc.
Can I use Bluetooth?
Arc streams audio over your WiFi network and does not support Bluetooth.
How is Arc different from Playbar, Playbase, and Beam?
Arc supports Dolby Atmos, which other products do not, and increases chances of receiving a Dolby Digital 5.1 signal.
Can I control my TV with my voice?
If your TV supports CEC (TVs with HDMI will support CEC) and you have set up a voice assistant, you will be able to control the TV with your voice.
How do I connect Arc to my TV?
Connect Arc to your TV's ARC/eARC port using the included HDMI cable or your own. If your TV does not have HDMI, Arc comes with the Sonos Optical Audio Adapter.
What is HDMI eARC?
eARC stands for enhanced Audio Return Channel. It allows full-resolution sound signals, including Dolby Atmos, to be passed from your TV to the soundbar.
Do I need a TV that supports HDMI eARC?

Sonos Arc can connect to TVs with eARC, ARC, or optical outputs. For greatest compatibility, eARC is recommended.


If you connect to a TV with eARC, the Dolby audio formats supported include Dolby Atmos, TrueHD, MAT, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby Digital.


If you connect to a TV using ARC, the Dolby audio formats supported are dependent on your TV model and manufacturer. The TV may be capable of sending Dolby Atmos, Dolby Digital Plus, and Dolby Digital. An ARC connection cannot support TrueHD or MAT.


If you connect to a TV using the optical adapter, the Dolby audio formats supported are dependent on your TV model and manufacturer. The TV may be capable of sending Dolby Digital. An optical connection cannot support Dolby Atmos, TrueHD, MAT, or Dolby Digital Plus.
