Question on Upgrading to new Sonos Products Gradually over Time

I am wondering which products I should upgrade and in what order since I cannot upgrade everything at once. I’d rather do it gradually. My current system has 3 Play:1 devices, 1 Connect, 1 Play:3, and 1 Playbar.  I use a sonos connect with a turntable.  It’s not completely reliable anymore especially if it is used with a device that is farther away in the house. One of the Play:1 devices is connected to my router. I’d rather not have to do that if it was possible.

Connect

Playbar

Play:3

Play:1

 

In that order.  You can disconnect the Play:1 from the router now and go full wireless, however you still have the older products that preceded wireless setup, and they are still optimal under the wired setup, aka Sonosnet.

Thank you for your response.  To replace the connect, is there a better option that buying the Sonos Port?

Better?  Depends on what functions you are using.  If you are using it to send Sonos output to a receiver or Amplifier, the Port is the only device which does so.  If you are using the Port for a Line-Input only, an Era 100 with line-in adapter is a less expensive alternative.
