I am trying to figure out a design that will work with primarily using line in for a turntable and music stored locally on my phone (occasional Spotify streaming too). I am new to the Sonos ecosystem and some things are still a bit opaque to me.
For Sonos products that offer line in, I see there is the Amp, the Five, or discontinued Connect. I'm not sure what purpose the amp would serve for line-in though, since the Five also offers line in, is cheaper than the amp, AND is a speaker.
Here is what I'm thinking for the setup: 1x Five (instead of the Amp), a pair of Ones, and the sub, and have this all be one group. May add a beam for the TV at some point. I'd likely get a $50 stereo mixer and have that go line-in to the Five. Phone with local files, turntable, maybe my DJ mixer, would all be connected to the stereo mixer that goes into the Five.
Does that sound like an ideal setup or are there other things that I'm not considering? Listening environment is: Massive downstairs area, with kitchen, large living room and bonus room (all open space).
EDIT: Just a note, the other alternative I’m thinking is: Amp (that my local phone files/turntable is connected to), pair of Ones, sub. This doesn’t seem to make a lot of sense to me though, because it would cost about the same us the setup I mentioned above.
