Hi I am interested in buying sonos for the first time and want to be able to play vinyl on a vintage turntable we inherited (1970s Pioneer PL-50). We also have a Pioneer SX-9000 receiver, but we got rid of the speakers because we don’t want the bulk. We would like to figure out whether we can connect this turntable to a sonos system, if so do we need to keep the receiver or buy a pre-amp, and then which Sonos component should we buy?
- Do I need the receiver? It is very complicated, with jacks that are marked “ Pre out and mixing rec.” “Main in” a toggle that says “Pre & Main Separated Intercoupled” “Phono Mag 1, Mag 2, Aux 1” etc. Seems like it would be easy to mess up and has much more capacity than I need
- Can a modern preamp connect to my vintage turntable?
- Given I have no speakers which sonos speaker should I get? The Five?
