Sonos Port connect Denon RCD-N7

New to Sonos and just running this by the community to confirm understanding of how this would work before purchasing the Sonos Port. Have recently purchased a Sonos Beam  for a new television and thinking to extend later throughout the house with other Sonos speakers.

Have existing Denon RCD-N7 (aka CEOL-N7) with speakers and record player attached to AUX-IN-1 inputs and wanting to play both CD’s and records through to the Sonos. Am presuming Sonos Port would do the trick?

Denon RCD-N7 AUX-OUT > Sonos Port In

Sonos Port out > Denon RCD-N7 AUX-IN-2

So when playing either vinyl or CD have the Denon set to the appropriate source (CD or AUX-1) and should play through the speakers connected to the Denon and also Sonos Beam / any additional Sonos speakers?

If streaming music through Sonos and have the Denon source set to AUX-2 then should get sound through the Denon speakers?

If my understanding is totally wrong then please let me know what would work best for this situation.

Thanks in advance

Yes, this should work both ways. Be aware most receivers can only route analoge sources tot the aux outs and not hdmi or spdif. So works for vinyl or cd.
