I have read a few of the questions similar to my issue and tried a number of the recommended fixes, yet I cannot resolve my intermittent audio issues related exclusively to my “Line In” configuration, could use some brain muscle… I have 10 devices linked to my Sonos system along with multiple audio sources from which to hear the sweet sounds of Sonos in pretty much every room of my home. However, no matter where I access my “Line-In” source, I cannot solve this intermittent sound hiccup, going silent from a millisecond to a few seconds at most. Guaranteed to happen on any average 3.5 minute song as an example, and would expect 3-4, maybe more of these quick but painful black outs in this example, but nothing consistent to be clear. Here is the configuration for this source… I create hiking/travel trail review videos as a hobby and spend probably too much time on my PC (Windows 10 OS). I wanted a better audio sound than my PC speakers so I physically installed my Play 3 in the same room as my PC, lets call that speaker product, PC ROOM. Given everything I could find regarding PC audio to Sonos Product, I then installed a Logitech Bluetooth Audio Receiver near the PC and connected the Bluetooth from my PC to this Receiver. The Bluetooth Receiver is then physically connected to a Sonos Connect (lets call this product source, COMPUTER, using a Logitech supplied 3.5MM cable from the Bluetooth Receiver, adapting to the Connect in the form of 2 RCA’s, using the Connects RCA Line In ports. I then use my app controller to connect the PC ROOM (System) with my COMPUTER (Line In via Connect). That is how I am configured physically and via Bluetooth. As far as settings go, under Audio Compression for LINE IN settings I am currently back on “Automatic” but have tried Automatic, Compressed and Uncompressed separately to no avail. I have the Settings on my Connect device (COMPUTER) set to source name “Computer”, Source Level to: Level 8 (Portable Player, PC) and finally, Audio Delay: Low (75ms). While tinkering with compression settings I did try Level 4 (Airplay) and Level 2 (A/V Component) in the Source Level settings as a solution someone offered in a prior thred. No dice there… Sorry for long post but wanted to give the whole picture to answer any initial questions. 12 pack of beer and KC Barbeque to the person who can solve this mystery for me. Thanks guys and gals..
