I have an old stereo system that includes a CD player, a turntable and one amplifier for both. When I bought the SONOS Connect, I was able to wire the RCA directly from my CD Player to the analog input on my Connect and it played through my SONOS speakers without trouble. However, when I try to do the same with my turntable, the sound is barely audible at maximum volume (even when I change the source level to 10 in advanced audio room settings on the Sonos app). I realize now that I must route the phonograph signal through an amplifier first, but I don't know how to do this with my old amp (since I haven't needed to incorporate it so far for my CD player).
When I plug the RCAs from the turntable into the phono input on my amplifier, the sound only comes through my existing external speakers. I can't get it to play through my SONOS speakers as well. I have tried plugging the RCAs from the turntable into Tape 1 inputs on my amplifier as well and then sending another set of RCAs from the corresponding Rec Out to the input on my SONOS Connect. But still nothing. I'm at a loss for what to do.
How do I use my existing amplifier to amplify the signal from my turntable before sending it to my SONOS speakers via the connect? Thanks.
