My Sonos Playbar, which is connected directly to my TV, along with the Sonos Sub, Sonos One, and a Sonos One SL. This is what I consider my Sonos Playbar system. In order to listen to my turntable, I have a Sonos Port that connects as a “Line-in” to the Sonos Playbar. THE CHALLENGE: When I moved into my new house, there were (5) pre-installed in-ceiling speakers. So I purchased a Denon AVR-X1600H. I have one Port connected to the receiver assuming that would be another way to access all of those speakers. The Denon receiver acts as a separate Sonos output speaker, but only plays out of two of the in-ceiling speakers.
What am I doing wrong?
The preferred setup would be to do the following:
- Use the Sonos Playbar system during normal TV activities
- Use the Sonos Playbar system for casual music listening
- Use the Sonos Playbar system for listening to my vinyl turntable
- Use ALL speakers, including the Sonos Playbar system, during parties
When I purchased the Denon receiver and the ports, these were purchased at BestBuy and I paid for the “GeekSquad” to configure them correctly. Unfortunately, this is not the desired setup because only two of the in-ceiling speakers work. One plays over the dining area and the other plays outdoors which is not ideal to use.
