Can I use Sonos as a keyboard amplifier, for home use?
I have a Yamaha Digital Stage Piano and just sold my PA speakers. I want to know if I can run a line-out from the keyboard into either the Play 5 or a PlayBar line-in to use it as an amp for the home (nothing ridiculously loud). I have had latency issues with past systems (tried doing the same thing through a Bose Solo and there was a small lag between key-strikes and sound coming out of the speaker). Is this possible, or will I experience delays?

We recommend using the PLAYBAR, it was designed with an optical port to ensure the fastest and highest quality audio processing possible.
Take a look at this link- it will discuss the PLAYBAR further. Please let us know if you have any other questions and we'll be happy to expand further.
But as @ratty says anyway, the lag may be distracting. I'm not sure if the converter would add noticeably to that lag.
Yes it has analogue output through L & R 1/4" jacks and I wondered if a digital converter was the way to go. In an odd way the delay might not be a problem. The keyboard is a classically voiced organ (Viscount Cantorum VI) and when playing a real pipe organ you get used to a certain amount of delay so it might end up more realistic.
So, thanks again!
Now that's what I call serendipity.
But, of course, I'll say it was intentional.
