Only works with digital inputs, not analog. Read on to save some frustration

I bought this speaker to connect to my Yamaha Rn402 receiver. Specifically to add a speaker to another room. This is the only wireless speaker in the setup. I have 4 rooms of wired speakers and did not want to run wire to the last room so I thought wireless using Musiccast would be easiest option.
Here is what I have learned. The wireless speaker will have a noticeable delay in the music when it is connected to an analog input. I have my Amazon Alexa connected to the Yamaha stereo via standard red/white rca plugs. This does not work. I have spent countless hours trying to get support from Yamaha (that is a nightmare in itself. Hour on hold to get disconnected, twice, etc). When Yamaha finally called me back (great guy named Ken that was awesome. wish he was easier to get to) we spent some time figuring it out and concluded that you must use a digital input for the wireless speaker to be in sync with the wired speakers.
What does this mean? If you connect Alexa to the receiver, you must use Bluetooth to connect to the stereo. Do not connect with RCA cables, it will not work.
Hope this saves someone some time.
If you connect Alexa to a yamaha reciever to connnect with a musiccast speaker along with your wired speakers, you have to use bluetooth to connect the two or it will not work.
