Hi I’m new to Sonos need some advice on what to buy a few questions
I have -
zone 1 -living room with TV /ps4 , amp/hi fi with a turntable and lovely monitor audio floor standers
walk through in to the kitchen zone 2
walk out on to the patio (zone 4?)
turn through doors in to zone 3 man cave
zone 3 - a TV ,imac, and another turntable , no amp /speakers as yet , and an iMac
ive got a Sonos connect and a play 1 , only bits I’ve got so far
Uplay 1 for the kitchen zone 2
the connect is for zone 1 living room in the hi fi
I’ve been reading googling etc the past couple of days about what to get , starting with zone 3 the man cave is 1st …
questions on this …if I bought a Sonos amp, beam above TV , 2x play 1s for rears , and plugged them turntable in to the amp via a phono pre amp , would it all work in harmony ?
Q- the tv work with the beam and rears for watching tv ?
Q- would the turntable play music through the beam and 1 rears ? And the 3 also work as a zone for wireless music ?
also just for music (not tv ) if I hard wired a pair of speakers placed either side of TV in to the amp , would they also play music in conjunction with the beam and 1s ? I do understand they will not be used for tv as the beam won’t work as a center
and if I hard wired a pair of outdoor speakers in to the amp , could I switch them on /off just when needed to play a zone (4) ? Outdoor patio music ?
im just wondering if that would work like that ?
or do I not use a beam and just get the amp and pair of 1s and use the speakers hard wired to both watch TV acting as a phantom center and the 1s as rears , and would all speakers play wireles music and the turntable ?
Appreciate any advice hope this makes sense ?
