CONNECT - Analog IN and OUT at the same time?

I want to pipe in audio from an external source into my Sonos system, which I can do with a CONNECT using analog in.

I want this to play on my Sonos speakers, and I also want to play the music on external speakers, which I can do using the analog out RCA output on the CONNECT.

Question: Can I do those both at once on the same CONNECT device? (run in from music source, stream over sonos, and run out to external speakers)

THANK YOU!

Yes

Example: I have my Connect hooked to my desktop computer. I can feed my desktop sound into connect and the sound out of the connect to my desktop speakers. Then at same time stream the same input to other speakers in the house.

Yes. The Line-In and Line-Out are independent. You can play the Line-In to the Line-Out. Or you can play the Line-In to some other room, and stream different music via the Line-Out.

What about the following scenario: I would like to connect my receiver (AVR) to the line-in of a Connect, so that music is streamed to other Sonos speakers in the group.
If I also link the Connect line-out to the line-in of the AVR (so the other way around), can I also stream music to the Connect (and hence the AVR) and other speakers in the group?

Yes. We traditionally suggest that a Connect can be treated -- and wired -- the same as a tape deck. So a REC OUT or equivalent would go to the Connect's Line-In. And the Connect's Line-Out would be wired to a TAPE/AUX IN on the AVR.
