Sonos are you guys ever planning on fixing the delay when using the Line In Analog input. I understand that there is no possible way of completely removing the delay but, as long as it's not noticeable. I wouldn't care. I currently bought so many Sonos Amps and now, I can't do one of the things I love most, Sing! I'm willing to buy a while new amp just to not have the delay. Are there any plans in fixing this?

The delay is necessary in order to buffer the input for reliable streaming. It's probably not fixable, especially for bandwidth heavy PCM like the digitized line-in sources.
Unless you have TV as a source where the compressed mode caused delay causes lip sync issues that are jarring, when is this an issue?

The problem with no delay streaming of line in is either a Sonos design issue/constraint or a 2.4 GHz bandwidth one. And probably the latter seeing that this is dealt with well by the Sonos AV products on 5 GHz.
Ok I have

Alright, I have 2 Sonos Amps. I have one that is connected to the TV via HDMI ARC. I have the other amp as surround speakers for the TV. I have my mixer connected to the line in input and and the mixer has 2 Microphones thru a wireless receiver. I would like to avoid the delay of the voice when I speak in the Microphone. I use YouTube on my Apple TV to look for karaoke version of a song and now that I have the Microphones and mixer there's a noticeable delay so the voice is off from lyrics on screen. That's the issue I'm having.
