Re: Multi room wireless speakers

Is your curved tv wall hung? Yeah, which makes the whole soundbar thing a pain in the hoop Do curved screens use a regular wall bracket though? You can just buy the brackets that hang off a regular tv wall bracket to hang it underneath? Would hang within the curve of the tv and look pretty decent?

Sonos for me but I’m not a music snob . Sonos with Spotify works for me and it’s fairly idiot proof which also helps I’d say that’s exactly what you are!

Re: Multi room wireless speakers

You’ll pay budget audiophile system money for Sonos and get tiny speakers with no dynamic range and a streaming system incapable of hi-res music. Even amazon music have gone hi-res now.
