I’d like to connect a CD player to my Sonos ecosystem. I have one Play 5, two Play 3, and two Play 1. I already have a turntable plugged into the Play 5 as a line in. I’ve seen other suggestions that I should rip all of my CDs as the solution, but I don’t want to do that. I actually like the CD disc format and related cases with cover art. Is there any way the Play 5 can share both the turntable and CD player with some sort of “line in splitter” or do I need something else for just the CD player - for example a Connect or something else? I think I read Connect may be discontinued(?), but did it ever work for this purpose?

You could go with a Port, which is what Sonos replaced the CONNECT with, or you could out a simple physical switch on the line in on the PLAY:5. I wouldn’t recommend a ‘line in splitter’ without a switch, though.
