Time Lag Between Smart Speakers .

We all know about the time lag between FM, DAB and internet radio signals, but why is there one between smart speakers?

Obviously one signal still has further to travel but at the speed of light that is not going to be noticeable in a three bedroom semi!

We have the same problem with two TV's that share the same ariel. Only explanation I can think of is that the internal circuits have different efficiences when it come to dealing with the signals. Very annoying when my wife goes into the other room and does not want to miss any of her program as it is like a distinct echo on the sound.

I have an occasional similar problem with my two Virgin boxes, one in the living Room and one in my computer room. Not always but sometimes there can be about a second between them.

These are identical speakers bought from the same supplier within a few days of each other, so there are unlikely to be any significant circuitry differences.
