Hi there fellow Sonos fans!
I currently have a 2nd gen play5 and looking for a new setup for my TV (the old TV is going to be replaced aswell!). The play5 is placed in the same room but in the kitchen/dining area and I want the new setup to be groped with the play5 for music/parties etc. Btw I love the play5 and I don´t want to get rid of it!
So I have a few options here:
1) Sonos playbar placed above the shelf (see pic) and a sonos sub. Is the suggested placement of the playbar any good? Unfortunately there isn't enough space to put the playbar anywhere else due to the size of the new TV. The playbase won't fit either.
2) Sonos connect amp + a pair of passive bookshelf speakers. I heard there could be a slight audio delay caused by this setup? Is that still a problem with new TV's?
3) A pair of active speakers (or a passive pair with a separate amp) + Sonos connect
4) Get rid of the play5 and go for a Heos/Bluesound setup with their respectively "Connect amp" with optical input that will also fix any audio delay issue.(Damn Sonos for not adding an optical input to the Connect amp!). The play5 will in this scenario be replaced with a pulse2/Heos7.
Here's my TV-shelf:
Thank you guys! Have a nice day!
