I have Sonos speakers throughout my house. I also have a separate turntable listening setup. The best thing about vinyl listening is keeping the analog signal from start to finish, as to be entirely uncompressed by any digitizing etc.
I’m interested in adding a Connect or Port to my turntable setup. It would have to be:
turntable → port → analog speakers
The port would obviously bring the music from my records to the various Sonos speakers throughout the house. But I want to make sure my nice dedicated analog speakers are still getting the full, uncompressed, analog signal from the turntable.
Is this the case? My hope is that the Port/Connect would digitize(compress) the signal to distribute throughout the house, but the signal passing thru to its RCA outputs remains uncompressed.
If I introduce a Connect or Port between the turntable and dedicated speakers, will these speakers be receiving a compressed signal? Or will it be identical to the signal they’d be getting if the Connect or Port wasn’t there?
