A possibly dumb question about multi-room sync

Let’s say I have four Up2Stream AMP V4’s. I plug a mini headphone jack into the line in port, and I plug the other end into an audio source.

Can I have all four Up2Stream AMPs play that source? I.e., does the analog signal get converted into digital and sent to the other three Up2Stream AMPS? I realize I could test this myself but I have other things I’m trying to set up first.

Thanks in advance


Yes, it will work. I did the same thing (but using an Up2Stream Pro V3) to connect a Yamaha digital piano. The audio from the piano was played on all other Amps (all Up2Stream Amp V4) but there was a significant delay. The ADC has to convert to digital, the pass the signal around the network, then the DAC needs to convert back to analogue for your speakers.

See my post here Whole House Audio

I do something similar with the turntable too, using an S50 Pro+ and again, there is a delay, but it works perfectly well.
