Connecting my old/original hifi using the Sonos connect so I can stream from my CD player.

I want to be able to use the Sonos connect to play my CDS to my original HiFi speakers via my original amp and CD deck ( both Tecnics units of about 20 years but working fine) and then stream onto my Sonos 1 and Sonos 3. Can I do this and if so what are the connections I need to make?

Wire the CD player to the CONNECT Line-In jacks.
Wire the CONNECT Line-Out jacks to the Technics amp.
Configure Line-In Autoplay so that the CONNECT passes through the CD signal automatically.

Obviously you can then group/ungroup and select sources as you wish.

BTW why are you still using a "CD player"? Most of us long ago ripped our CDs to disk, and have Sonos play the files directly.
