I currently own a playbar, sub and couple of ones forming a nice setup for my living room and kitchen; I’m looking to extend the setup to the main bedroom, though I have a couple of uses and respective requirements in mind for this room.
I need to be able to play music to the bedroom speakers (playing around the house is not important here) from a digital feed from my laptop - usually usb with no latency. I understand that no Sonos product offers a USB input, with only the Sonos: Amp offering HDMI input (I realise others offer coax & optical). This would mean that the speakers I require would be passive stereo monitors (third party). If I were to HDMI from my laptop to the Sonos: Amp that is connected to wired passive monitors; if I only play music through these speakers, will there be any latency? (I am looking to mix).
I would like the option to mix without latency (using the proposed setup) and have the option to integrate the third party monitors into my sonos system for general listening (I understand that if I do this, latency can be expected - hence only mixing to the wired speakers through the amp).
Does this sound feasible to anyone?
If not, is there any other workaround? I don’t have any third party speaker as yet, so I am constrained by the digital audio output from my laptop/ decks - currently only HDMI/ USB. Is there an option with third party active monitors and a sonos connect?
