Hi. I currently own a Sonos One and a Sonos Roam. I'm considering buying the Pro-ject T1 Phono SB turntable with the Sonos Five speaker so I can get back to listening to vinyl.
My living room is quite small and has been served by Sonos One so far, so I believe Sonos Five will be quite the upgrade (One will be moving to another room). I'd therefore love to use Five as my main sound output, also while streaming movies/shows.
I don't own a TV and I stream video on my MacBook Pro and project on a wall through a Benq projector (model is from 10 years ago, EP4227, and I use and HDMI cable to connect it to my laptop). In the past, I've tried playing the sound on One while projecting the video (simply by having One and my MacBook on the same WiFi and selecting the sound output on One, while projecting the video through HDMI) but there's always been a substantial lag in the sound. I've given up and always use the MacBook speakers for sound, which is obviously less than optimal.
If I am to invest in further sound equipment, I'd love to solve this issue. Is there a way to get sound playing on Sonos Five while streaming video through an HDMI cable on to a projector? At this point, I'm also considering upgrading the projector and any recommendations are welcome if they'd solve the sound lag issue. My goal is to be able to use one good speaker (at this point, most likely Sonos Five but open to different suggestions) with both a turntable and a video projector (alternately, of course).
Thanks in advance for your help!
