I cannot activate certain speakers on my Connect/Amp 5.1

With Connect/Amp 5.1, only 2 analog and 3 wireless speaker pairs and a center as well as a subwoofer with the same connection type can be activated. It is not possible to activate 3 analog or 4 wireless speaker pairs.

Is synchronous playback on multiple devices possible?

Yes, however, creating a group within the Google Home APP is required.

What content can I save on presets?

What device settings are saved on the presets?

The input, main volume, play mode, and all settings except EQ, room height, and device height in the speaker settings menu are saved.

A subwoofer connected to the Amp/Connect does not produce sound

This is normal behavior under the following conditions:

2 The input signal (such as PCM or Dolby Digital 2.0) contains no LFE signal.

3 If you set the SUB Stereo parameter in the Speaker Settings/Subwoofer Setup menu to Xover or parallel, the subwoofer will emit a signal in the Stereo and Party play modes despite the above conditions.

My Smart wireless linked Soundbox3 does not turn on with the Master (Soundbar, connect/Amp 5.1)
