My system consists of the following components:
A wired PC with lots of music files
A wired Marantz SR6008 AVR connected to JBL studio speakers and an SVS subwoofer
Multiple Sonos Play:1s and a One
A wired Apple TV 4K
Google Chromecast audio over wifi
A Macbook Air on wifi
What is the best way for me to just have music sent to the Marantz AVR to get the best quality and consistency (no hiccups, clicks, dropouts, etc.) to a. my main setup of the Marantz with JBL speakers and b. to the Marantz AND the Sonos speakers? Will a Sonos Connect into the Marantz, with the wired PC acting as a media server be the most logical setup? Can I play FLAC this way? What limitations will I face? I also use Spotify a lot - would a Connect benefit me at all for this, too?
It would seem the Apple TV and Chromecast would be cut out of the audio equation if I went with the Sonos Connect, right (that probably doesn't matter much to me; the Chromecast was cheap, and the ATV is for 4K streaming primarily)?
Is there a better solution, or a more straightforward one? From my research it seems like this is probably the way to go. Thanks!
