Hi! Have a Sonos Connect including many Sonos wireless speakers. Also have B&O BeoLab 4000 active speakes that I would like to use as main speakers for my TV. How do I connect TV and B&O to Sonos Connect? What cabels and what inputs do I use? There are 4 analog audio on the Sonos Connect to be used. What connection input on my Samsung TV to use? Many thanks for your input. Regards JohanW

Hi @JohanW, welcome to the community.

 

The Sonos Connect only has 1 option for input; the RCA jacks labelled “line in”.

However, the Connect is not designed to be used as a home theater device as there is a 70ms delay to sources connected to the line in port which could potentially lead to some lip sync issues. 

 

As for connecting your Beolab 4000 speakers - from my brief look at the user manual it appears the speakers connect to each other using a proprietary cable and have a line out jack on one of them. An RCA-Y cable should work here.
