Question : I'm thinking of using the amp alongside a home recording setup. Does anyone know if there's noticeable lag when using photo for audio in - particularly as it would feed into a Sonos-net?

Hi, Chopdog. This is not going to work, unfortunately. I tried this myself using a PLAY:5's line-in port and even then, the lag made it totally unworkable. I was not grouping speakers, just attempting to get audio in real-time through the speaker itself. Do let us know if you have any further questions.

A colleague of mine and I discussed this. What kind of setup do you have? I ask because the HDMI input should actually be (almost) entirely latency free, but it depends on what is being fed into it. Mind clarifying for us?

Mmmmm was assuming phono. But assume I could do hdmi from Thunderbolt.
