Creating Surround Sound in Any Room

Surround sound is a technology that is used for enriching the quality of audio reproduction for listeners by using additional audio channels. Unlike screen channels, the sound produced by surround sound technology is from a 360° radius in the two-dimensional plane. Surround sound uses multiple channels, with each channel having a dedicated speaker within the system. Surround sound provides listeners with excellent audio ambiance and richer and fuller sound.

Surround sound is a technique that allows the perception of sound spatialisation to be enhanced by manipulating sound localisation. This can be achieved by using discrete and multiple audio channels.

AV Setup For Different Rooms

Every room in the home serves a different purpose and therefore your audio and visual requirement and set up will be slightly different. Whatever the room, there is a SONOS solution to delivering high quality crystal clear sound for your movies or music.









What You Would Need to Create Surround Sound in Any Room
  1. TV sitting on TV cabinet or mounted onto a fixed bracket on the wall. Motorised motion brackets are available for more flexible viewable positions.

  2. SONOS Playbar / Beam / Playbase located under TV.

  3. SONOS Sub for deep dynamic bass and enhanced sound and effects.

  4. Add two SONOS Play:1s or SONOS Ones for 5.1 Surround Sound set up.
