Looking for some help. I've given up on trying to utilize the Phono stage input on my new Denon with my Sonos Connect. Pre-outs from the AVR to the Connect introduce noticeable delay to other Sonos speakers unless I run from Turntable to the Connect FIRST, but I can't do that because the TT doesn't have a built in phono pre-amp. I had this working flawlessly on my old Pio Elite, but it was a dinosaur and had Tape In/Tape Out-- no delay even with DSP.
So, I just picked up a pre-amp: Amazon Prime Same-day to the rescue.
Here's my question:
If I have ZERO delay using my Sonos Connect with my AVR for internet radio, spotify, etc., then is it safe to say, if I insert a pre-amp between the TT and the Connect and then go line-out from Connect to my AVR, I can expect similar results with no delay?
I still don't quite fully understand why this new setup is not working. I understand that the Connect inserts a delay caused by buffering so that all speakers are in sync, but I don't quite get why it used to work before on the old AVR.
Anyway, can someone give me some reassurance on my assumption above?
