Just bought a Port to connect my home hi fi system to Sonos. I have a Cambridge Audio integrated amp (CXA61) connected to a turntable via a Cambridge audio Alva Duo pre-amp. The Port connects no problem to the amp via coax digital cable. The sound is great streaming from Sonos through the amp.
I was hoping to play the turntable through Sonos via the Port RCA input. I connected the Port input to the amplifier through the “Pre-Out” RCA connection. I then tried to play in Sonos via the line in. I see the three little bars playing but there is no sound from the Sonos speakers. Tried to play around with settings of the Port in Sonos app to see if that would help. No luck. Any ideas?

I would consider connecting this differently. Turntable to phono pre-amp to Connect line in. Connect coaxial out to amp digital in. Make sure digital input is selected on amp, and line in as the source for whichever room you want the turntable to play (including your hifi). You can group rooms as required.
