I know this is a touchy subject and I have searched this forum multiple times trying to find the best solution to meet my needs but most of the topics don't actually speak to my needs so I am finally starting a new one... Please no trolls about the push / pull systems or any of that garbage... I am just looking for a solution for my issue.
I NEED to play my mac audio through my Sonos system. I don't have a TV or Apple TV etc... and use my MacPro for all of my media needs. After buying my Sonos 5 and 3 (both v1) years ago I figured out a work around by plugging my Sonos 5 directly into my MacPro via the line out. I do watch a lot of movies ect on my rather large 4k monitor.
This works ok BUT when trying to play music through both my 5 (which is plugged in) and my 3 (which is not and can not) my 3 is constantly breaking up (despite living in a 1 bedroom open floor plan type apartment. This has rendered my 3 pretty much unless for me.
I was just given a Boost (which I have not plugged in as of yet) and was wondering what the proper way (if any) to keep playing my system sound through my 5 and still be able to use my 3 to mirror that system sound... I am hoping the Boost may help but honestly am not sure it will and also not sure the best way to set things up.
I have been hearing about SonoAir but last I read it still had a 4 second delay to it.
So to recap, I have v1's of the Sonos 5 & 3 players and now a Boost.
I want to play my system sound through both players and not have cut outs.
Any suggestions that don't tell me to go with another system are much appreciated.
