I want to use 2 Play 5s and create a stereo pair for my TV however I don't currently own a smart tv.

1. Can this be done using the Play 5 line in option?

2. If not do I need a Smart/Wifi connected TV and or playbar to do this?

I’m not sure if you could use a Headphone outlet from TV (if it has one) to the Line-in on the Play:5? But there may be a delay so you’d have lip sync issues. 

The Beam/Playbar/Playbase products are the conventional Sonos offerings for TV. The TV doesn’t need to be Smart but will need, depending on product chosen, HDMI-ARC or optical outputs.
