Hi, I have tried all the relevant historic topics but these all seem to be closed for new comments or questions. Apologies if I have missed something.
I have a 4 room Sonos system and over the last year have introduced a Cambridge Audio CD player and Pro-ject turntable via Connect and RCA switch, which all works well.
I now want to use the Connect to bring these analogue items into an amp and some selected wired speakers to give me some old school HiFi experience in this one room, but to still be able to push out these analogue inputs to the rest of the house, with no delay.
As described elsewhere on the forum, I have tried routing the Connect through the Tape Monitor loop on an old Technics SUV50 Amp, which has two Tape Monitors. When played with CD selected on the ‘Record’ input and tape monitor on the amp input I can hear the sound being picked up by the Connect and passed through the house but nothing through the wired speakers; These only play if I go back to CD input. It doesn’t work on either tape loop - So I am left wondering if this suggestion does not work or if the amp’s Tape Loop monitor functions are both just duff?
I was looking to match up my Cambridge Audio CD player with a CA Amp [with Tape loop monitor] but don’t want to waste my time/hard earned if it doesn’t work.
Can anyone advise? Many thanks.

Fixed or variable, it doesn’t matter. Have you actually instructed the Connect to play its own Line-In through its Line-Outs? It won’t do so automatically, unless Line-In Autoplay is configured.
