Hi everyone who is interested. I have the Amazon Echo Studio Speakers with the Amazon Echo Sub also, amazing sound for the area we have and use predominately with a Deezer account to get the lossless Hi-fidelity sound. As it would be great to get these to be our home theatre system for out tv I was wondering if anyone else has tried to set these up through the Alexa app using the Amazon Fire TV and was successful?

It requires the new Fire TV models - it won't sync with the Amazon Fire TV 1st Gen - in which case you can just plug an optical out from the ATV directly to the Studio. This works if you use it only with the Fire TV and built-in services but that is not very flexible if you have other sources (in which case you could always plug the optical from the amp instead).

Thanks, I have the new firetv 4k stick. I was hoping to achieve 2.1 Dolby Atmos stereo quality on services offered by the stick including Netflick but setup, which is required to link the Studio speakers + Sub to the Stick in the Amazon app describes the stick as being online in Devices but offline when trying to set up Home Cinema Set.

I have messaged Amazon, but they are not replying at the moment because of Covid

Are both devices on the same network? Are you sure there's no "isolation" mode in play (where the router is set to not let devices see each other)? Are both devices fully updated? 

 

How long since you have had both devices on the same network?

Fire Stick 4K has the latest software. Echo Studio speakers + Sub and firetv4k stick have been running on same and only 5ghz network for about 2 months. No isolation setting found in router. Im currently thinking that because the Firetv4k stick hasn’t been officially released in NZ that its the problem. I might have to buy a standard NZ release stick to get the sound i want but then loose the 4K resolution : ( or wait for Amazon. Just thought Id try forum for a work-around until then

I have been in touch with Amazon. Here is the story

Echo Studio Speakers do not pair with the Echo Sub when creating a Home Theatre Set with the Firetv4K

To realise Dolby Atmos sound through Echo Studio Speakers you need to have a FireTV4K stick.

Your Amazon Account must be registered in the county you brought the Firetv4K from i.e. you need to have an Amazon.com account if the Firetv4K stick was purchased in the USA in order for it to pair with the Echo Studio Speakers

My solution to this problem was to first of all switch my Amazon account from .au to .com then create a Home Theatre Set with the FireTV4K and the two Echo Studio Speakers which handles all the sound from whatever app on the FieTV4K then create another Set pairing my two standard Echo Speakers with the Echo Sub which handles Spotify, Deezer.

The result was worth it.
