I am about to own a turnable and was wondering if i can have a fully analog path from turnable to sonos play 5 speaker?
I found some forum posts about this issue but i think was other users telling their opinion and couldn’t manage to figure out how signal path works.
I would like some sonos official answer about this!
Some users in this forum claim that once the analog signal from line-in reaches play-5 speaker whether or not this speaker sends data to other speakers the a/d conversion is the only path through.
So does every signal from line in is converted in digital and then optionally sent to other sonos devices and each device makes the d/a final conversion?
If so, is there any way to bypass the the a/d part of the a/d/a process?
If not what do i need to do to have a fully analog path?
Thanks a lot!!

There is no analog bypass. The Line-In signal is digitised on input.
Given that you plan to pipe a turntable into Sonos the fact that the signal goes through ADC and DAC should hardly trouble you. Any possible side-effects would be imperceptible compared to the shortcomings of the original signal.
