I have a Sonos 5 connected to an Audio Technica AT-LP120X turntable with built-in pre-amp. The sound quality is horrible, what can I try to do to improve it?

I have to say I think you’re rather clutching at straws. Tinkering with tracking weight and cables is a distraction. If a cable was faulty it's highly unlikely the fault would hit both channels.
A tinny, weak sound is characteristic of a phono preamp not doing its job to apply boost and RIAA equalization.
Find another source and test the Five’s Line-In to make sure that’s okay. A headphone outlet from a phone would do.
