Hello. First post.
Basically, I'm after a list of receivers that are known to not have a delay when connected with a Sonos Connect.
Some background... I've just bought 2 Connects, a Connect:Amp and a Play 5. All is fine except I've run into the delay problem with my Onkyo tx-sr875. It's been discussed before, so I won't dwell on it, but basically I can't use any of the listening modes except Pure Audio or it'll be horribly out of sync with the other Sonos players when grouped. Ideally, Sonos would do all the clever shenanigans necessary to delay the group to match the lethargic output of my Onkyo when it's doing the tricky maths, but from reading here on the forums, that doesn't look likely.
So... is there anyone here who has a receiver equivalent to the Onkyo tx-sr875 that does the signal processing super quick? Pure audio (a mode on the Onkyo that just passes the signal through un-touched) is perfectly in sync, but it also is just 2.0, so I don't get any bass from my sub. I'd be happy with just 'All Stereo' or another mode that passes a signal to all of my (5.1) speakers.
Do Onkyo do a more recent receiver that doesn't add a delay when processing?
Are there other receivers that don't have this problem at all?
Is there a list? I couldn't find one... :-(
All help much appreciated...
