To connect a CD player to two Sonos 5’s in a stereo configuration with a 3.5mm jack, does the cable go into one speaker and it controls both?
My CD player only has one output jack for this, unless there’s a splitter of some kind.
Also, is any preamp needed for a CD player, like what I’ve read for a turntable?

In a stereo-pair configuration, the line-in audio will play on both speakers - you can use the line-in port on either speaker.
The output from the CD player will likely be at the line-level so I don’t believe you will need a pre-amp.
