Noticeable latency for SAM monitors?

Noticeable latency for SAM monitors?

Youngling Posts: 3 Join Date: 11/12/19 Recent Posts

I am interested in the 8320+7350 SAM monitors for multiple purposes. One of the purposes is playing an electronic stage piano connected to the analog inputs of the monitors. The SAM monitors have a <5 ms latency, right? Will that latency be noticeable and affecting my piano playing experience?

The delay of the 8330 is about 2,4 ms, you should not notice it when you are playing.

2.4 ms is about 80 cm in distance. So it would be the same as if you put your speakers 80 cm further away. As you'll probably have 8320 quite close anyway, this shouldn't be a problem.

I only play VSTs, so I might be used to a little latency already anyways, but I couldn't notice any difference (distance to my 8320 is about 90 cm).
