Frequently Asked Questions

In an ever evolving Audio Video market, we make understanding the do's and dont's in Home Cinemas, Business AV, Wired and Wireless Networking Pick your subject area from the list below.

Home Cinema
  • Bluetooth pairs or connects devices using short-range radio waves. WiFi similarly pairs or connects devices, but it also connects to the internet, typically through a wireless router. Internet access allows you to stream higher fidelity audio over greater distances, group or stereo pair Sonos speakers, play content from Sonos Radio, use your voice assistant, and more.

  • Roam must be set up with the Sonos app while on WiFi before you can connect a device directly via Bluetooth.

  • You can ask Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant for hands-free help when Roam is connected to your WiFi network. While streaming with AirPlay 2, you can use Siri on your iOS device to control Apple Music.

  • Roam offers up to 10 hours of continuous playback on a single charge. When not in use, Roam switches to sleep mode to conserve power, and the battery can last up to 10 days.

  • Connect the included USB-C to USB-A cable to a 5V/1A or 2.1A USB power adapter, such as the Sonos Power Adapter. You can also place the speaker on any Qi certified charger or use the custom-designed Sonos Roam Wireless Charger (sold separately).

  • When you are on WiFi, you can use the Sonos app to create a stereo pair with two matching speakers and enjoy detailed stereo separation and a wider soundstage for listening to music and other audio. A Roam stereo pair will not work as surround speakers in your Sonos home theater system.

  • The first thing you need to decide is how big you want the screen to be? Depending on how much space you have typical sizes are between 96 – 120 inches (measured diagonally). Domestic TV screens may be getting bigger all the time but once you go above 90" TVs they become more expensive and harder to hide. It’s tempting to go large, but its important to see the bottom edge of the screen from every seating position. Don't forget that if its too large you'll have to move your eyes to see the whole of the screen creating a feeling much like sitting in the first row of seats in a cinema, and potentially motion sickness! Choosing the right-sized screen It’s important to make sure your projector will fill the screen from its intended position. You can use the unit’s throw ratio information to discern this. Divide the distance between the projector and screen by the throw ratio and you’ll get the image width. It’s important to note that it’s image width not the diagonal. Image width x Throw ratio = Distance from screen If you have a screen that is 2.6m wide and a projector with a throw ratio of 1.3 you'll need to put the projector 3.38m away from the screen. As well as the size of screen, consider the type. Do you want a fixed model that sits on your wall or a roll-up option that can be hidden away after use? The answer depends on whether the room is a multi-use space. If so, hiding the screen away makes a lot of sense. In a dedicated home cinema room the fixed option is the way to go, because the screen is always ready for viewing and adequately tensioned to ensure a smooth, flat surface for the projector’s image. It also doesn’t need power to operate any motors. While the fashion with TVs dictates that a minimal border is ideal, we advise against carrying that through to projector screens. It’s best to get a fixed screen with a relatively wide frame. The frame should be covered with black light absorbing material, so that any part of the projector image that falls on it isn’t reflected. This means that millimetre perfect alignment of the projector’s image isn’t required and also that your picture is perfectly framed, helping it standout.
