There is a lot of discussion around this and it sounds like my setup won’t work. I’m new to Sonos, so I’d really like to go with Sonos, so I want to make sure this won’t work before moving on.
My intention is to setup Sonos Amp for both my Samsung Frame TV and record player. The room has 4 surround in-wall dumb speakers. To make this cost effective, I’d like to keep these speakers and replace the other 2 pairs of ‘in ceiling’ speakers in the house with architectural speakers to play selectively digital music as different rooms. I’d like to use the existing dumb ceiling speakers for my living room with the TV and record player.
Am I correcting in understanding that because I am setting up as surround for the TV, the amp could not be used to play vinyl out of the dumb surround speakers because the line in is disabled?
As a workaround, could the second amp be used as the line in for the record player? Could it then play the vinyl on the surround setup through the other amp powering the surround speakers? If not, if I got another 4 architectural ceiling speakers for the TV room, would that work to play both vinyl and TV?
Thanks for your help everyone.
