Chromecast + Chromecast Audio Question

Hello audiophiles,

I currently use my Chromecast to stream music via my TV, which is has audio-out cables plugged into a mini-component system via the AUX input.

I use Google's "Play" to stream via PC or phone.

I have my PC in another room, with a decent pair of monitors attached and would like to play music from both the living room and home office at the same time, but Play won't allow this when streaming from the PC. I can only play audio on the living room speakers.

If I buy a Chromecast Audio for the room with the PC, and plug those speakers in, can I link the standard Chromecast and Chromecast audio to play music across the apartment?

Thanks!

Thanks for the link!

Well, it looks like there is no way to sync a regular Chromecast with an audio Chromecast or mirror the pc to TV without audio lag.

I ended up ordering 2 Chromecast audio devices to cast for a home party. It cost more than I wanted to spend since the mark up in my country of residence is high but I think it will be worth it. Been really happy with my Chromecast for TV and expect to use all for a while.

Cheers!
