Hello Sonos Community,
We recently bought a play5 and a connect for my folks. Now i want to connect an old sony amp (ta-a200) to the connect so that i can play a cd or lp and can hear this from both the speakers connected to the amp and from the play5.
The amp has input lines for phono,tuner,cd and aux and two tape inputs. There are also two REC outputs for the tapes lines. Off course there are also speaker wire outputs onwhich two speakers are connected.
Now I connected the line out from the connect to the line in (aux). So that works i can listen spotify on both play5 and my speakers.
Now i want to play a cd or lp and here is where i can get all boxes play at the same time. I have used the line out from the amp (tape rec) and connected this to the line in from the connect. This works but only the play5 produces sound. Apperantly the amp can only output speakerwires or tape rec. If I unselect the Taperec I get sound from the speakers but not the play5.
I am thinking to use the speaker wire output and convert this to rca and connect this to the CONNECT line in. I have an open slot for the speaker wires so no problem. Just not sure if this works? I see simple adapters online (from wire to RCA) but also with some type of converter in between.
Any advice? Is this a good solution?
