Adding a Sonos Amp (for Vinyl) to existing home theater with Playbase and two Play 1s

Hi Community,

I’m looking for solutions to play vinyl via Sonos. My current home theater setup is a Playbase with two Play 1s. How would adding an Amp in order to connect vinyl mess with (or improve, or have no impact) on my current home theater setup? Would a Port be better than the Amp?


Thank you!

Hi @Langbecker 

Any turntable you purchase must have a pre-amp either built-in or as a separate unit. The Sonos Port will work just fine and at less cost.  The only reason to use a Sonos Amp would be if you wanted to use a pair of wired 3rd party speakers. There is no negative impact. The positive is that you’ll be able to play turntable audio through your Playbase with the Play 1 surrounds.
