Minimalist, but very nice :) How are you getting atmos content to the bar and how does it sound compared to your full main system? Also what's your thoughts on the new TV?

Obviously, dedicated Atmos speakers are far superior. But Sonos is pretty decent.

The TV is absolutely stunning.....the blacks aren't the best (I'm used to plasma TV blacks) but otherwise it's superb. No plans to get a UHD player. Will hopefully get a PS5 when I can, which can work as UHD player.

Neat and tidy, as you say it's temporary and not your main setup.
The reason i went OLED was coming from a plasma and anything else could not match the black levels.
Hope you are settling in OK.

Ah ok, does the soundbar work well enough then as centre and Front L and R? I'd envisaged getting one to run as the centre speaker, with Play 5s as front L and R, with 2 x play 1 as rear L and R
You cannot use separate front channels with Sonos. With Sonos Arc or Beam, you can only use additional speakers as rears. Besides, the Arc is Atmos enabled which won't happen if it's used only as a centre speaker.

The Arc is more than capable as fronts and centre.

OK, that's saved me some £££ in error, thanks
