I am new to the Sonos eco system, but am a quick learner. I have invested in 4 Play 1's and want to use my home stereo in the setup as well, and have read the "Connect" is the best way. I have also read in a post that if one has a Gen2 Play 5, they would not need a Connect. Can anyone lead me in the right direction please on this subject by chance?
I know the Play 5 gen 2 has a line in 3.5 jack, but how does that replace a Connect that would wire to a receiver?
Also, the Connect has a few different versions over the years, and the software is the same on them all, as far as they all take the latest firmware....is there any other negatives between the generations? I know the ZP80 had a slower wifi, but that is all.
Thanks for any clarification in advance.
