A friend has asked me to help him install some outdoor speakers for him. Sounds easy enough. The problem is he currently has a Samsung screen connected to a Polk Soundbar. The challenge is he would like to have the option of playing the same music inside on the soundbar at the same time it is playing outside on the patio. Currently he uses the bluetooth connection to play music from his phone on the sound bar but also may use one of the music channels from Comcast to play music on the Soundbar.
My thinking is to purchase a Sonos Connect and also a Sonos Amp. The audio from the TV would go to the Sonos Connect via RCA. The Sonos Connect would go to the Soundbar via Optical cable and also go to the Sonos Amp via RCA.
This would enable him to use the Sonos Connect to feed the soundbar and the Sonos Amp at the same time but also give him the option of just playing music either inside or outside independently. I guess he also would still be able to play music directly to the Soundbar using Bluetooth but with this system he could just play everything using the Sonos app.
Does this scenario sound like it would work? Does anyone see a problem with my thoughts?
Thanks for the help
