I have a CD, turnable, and tape deck connected to a Marantz NR1506. I was thinking about getting a Port to accomplish two things,
- Keep an existing set of speakers connected to the receiver.
- Essentially using the receiver as a giant switch to be able to stream CDs, vinyl, and tapes to the rest of the house. I believe running the Marantz PRE OUT to the Port IN should give me a line level.
- Using the Port to stream audio from elsewhere to the Marantz. I believe running the Port OUT to a Marantz input should give me that.
This is a pretty weird (?) setup and was wondering if there were potential issues.

Welcome to the Sonos Community and thank you for reaching out with your set-up question.
Your kind of situation is exactly what the Sonos Port was designed and built for so I don’t think its all that strange.
You can find more detail about using line in options with Sonos here.
By the way, did you hear the one about the horse that walked into a bar?
