What I have as sources currently:
- Marantz CD6006 CD Player
- Audio-Technica AT-LP5 with phono pre-amp built in
I want to be able to play both CD's and vinyl through the Sonos system. I'm thinking of starting with 2 Play:5 speakers as my main living room experience, and a couple of Play:1's in some of the other rooms, maybe a Beam hooked up to the TV in the master bedroom as well. I do use streaming services (Spotify, Rhapsody, Slacker, etc.) but I do love the experience of physical media and we have a lot of CDs and vinyl.
How do I hook up the CD player and the vinyl turntable? I'd like to do it as simply as possible, so if that means removing the Marantz NR1608 amplifier from the setup I'm okay to do that, I can "donate" it to one of my kids. I thought about using the Sonos AMP, but that only appears to have one analogue input and no optical input. Does that mean something like the Sonos Connect also needs to be in there?
So, how do people handle this sort of setup? It strikes me that it's not an unusual configuration, at least I'm not trying to hook up other sources like Mini Disk, cassette or 8 Track I'm a complete neophyte at all of this, so any hints and tips from the collective would be hugely appreciated!
