Can Play 5 Gen 2 act as a Connect if plugged into aux through computer?

I currently have a Sonos Connect operating through my PC with line in (aux) which then send the signal to my Play 5.
My question is, if I plug the aux line in directly into my play 5, can i then connect to other speakers without the Sonos Connect?
Will the play 5 act as a connect as it is directly connected to the PC through aux (line in)?
I am hoping to buy two new Play 1's but before I do I was wondering if I can sell my Sonos Connect to be able to put the money towards these.

Yes. And you can do so even with the 5 silent if you do not want it to play.

Yes, the line in on the 5 will work exactly in the way it does on the Connect where other Sonos speakers are concerned. You will just need a cable with a stereo multi jack for the single stereo socket on the 5.
Thanks Kumar for the quick reply. So just to clarify I can get rid of the Connect and use the Play 5 as a bridge for other speakers?

Thanks
