I’m looking to add a turntable to a current 5.1 Sonos system (Playbase, Sub, 2x Sonos One). I just need a line-in function, and I wouldn’t be using the output function on the Port, Amp, Connect:Amp, or Connect. Also, I frequently use the Airplay 2 with the current setup.
It seems the Connect could be the most cost effective option (buying a $399 Port just for a line in seems like overkill), but it seems there may be issues:
- Some forum posts indicate that the Connect doesn’t work with the Sub because it cannot judge the level of the 3rd party speakers to which it is connected. Could the Connect work with the Sub if there are no 3rd party speakers connected?
- Is there any risk that using the Connect in this way will disable the Airplay 2 functionality of the current system?
Very appreciative of this forum’s help.
