Play 5 + Play 1's with TV Setup

I've been looking into setting up a Home Theater system with my Sony XBR 55X850 TV

Is it possible to setup the Play 5 through Analog (Line in) to the TV and have two other Play 1's connect to the Play 5 through the Controller App.

I'm aware there will be a slight latency issue by going through Analog, anywhere from 70ms to 120ms.

If that's possible with that setup, would it allow for any better quality going through a DAC for Digital Optical to the Analog for the Play 5 or would that create more interfaces it's going through in result more loss of quality and latency?

Thanks for the help!

You could do that, it won't be home theatre in any sense of the words though, it'll simply be one stereo speaker plus two stereo speakers all playing the same thing, there will be no surround effect, if that's what you're after.
