Basic level questions coming here. For the record, I did spend sometime in the forum but wasn't clear on the answers
We are without a TV, and looking to upgrade watching movies from our laptops to a projector (with a chromecast) We like the idea of something that is NOT hardwired or in a permanent location (ie the projector will not be mounted or fixed....) And we already have many sonos speakers throughout the house (porch, shop and kitchen have play:1, living room has a play:5 with our record player connected) --so it seems a shame to not be able to utilize them for any sort of movie watching.
Two questions: I gather a beam is the appropriate speaker to connect to a projector as the others may have an audio delay--true? Is there no way to stream movies and airplay with sonos?
If I can airplay, I'd be interested in getting a second play:5 to pair, but read only the same generation can pair. Dumb question, but how do I find what generation speaker I have?
and lastly, while I really enjoy my sonos--if the suggestion is to buy a beam to be used only when I set up my projector--would a cheaper bluetooth speaker be a better fit? Thanks!
