My sound quality is terrible when using by new Pro Ject T1 turntable through my Play 5. There are two problems:
- The volume is strangely low. After reading other posts, I adjusted the audio compression to “uncompressed” and I increased the source level. That helped only a bit with volume; it is still too low.
- The sound quality is very poor. It sounds tinny, slight echo, almost as if in a chamber, and it emphasizes layer of the tracks it shouldn’t, making the songs almost unrecognizable in parts.
I am using the RCA to stereo 3.5 cable provided by Sonos.

The Sonos Amp is not a pre-amp. It’s a full blown Amp designed to power speakers. Do a search on Amazon for ‘phono pre-amp’ and you should find dozens of options, all, I think, near or below the $30 price point.
