Need a little insight to see if I missed anything after making a relatively simple change to my turntable setup. I added a Pro-ject Phono Box DC preamp as follows: turntable outputs to preamp inputs, then preamp outputs to Sonos Connect Amp inputs. Bowers and Wilkins speakers wired to Connect Amp. Recently upgraded cart to Audio-Technica AT440MLB. Checked/rechecked for correct polarity, and switched phono equalizer switch from "on" to “thru”. Also checked to ensure Autoplay Room (Family Room) was on for was Line-In. Line in Source name is Turntable. If I’m streaming music through Pandora, as soon as the stylus meets the LP, Autoplay should switch over to turntable audio. Nope.
The only way Sonos sees the turntable is for me to unplug preamp and Connect Amp connections then plug them back in. Audio using the Pro-Ject preamp is still a step up from the TEAC internal preamp.
However when the turntable is connected directly to the Sonos Connect Amp, no issues at all with autoplay. Audio is still very good using the internal preamp, just not as good as external preamp. Have I overlooked anything?
Thanks for any help
