I'm planning to purchase the new Sonos amp and thinking on how well my old TV will work with it. TV does not have HDMI arc. It has only optical out. I know that there is optical to HDMI adapter available by Sonos. The questions in my mind are following:
- if using the adapter, will it behave exactly the same compared to HDMI arc? Or is there some benefits if having HDMI arc supported TV?
- If using the adapter, is there a risk to have some latency issues compared to HDMI arc -solution?
- I'm having Xbox One connected to TV by HDMI. Can Sonos amp provide audio from that source as well? I believe yes, as optical out (and HDMI arc) will take the audio from the "active" source/channel. But just want to be sure.
