- QuestionI have a complete home stereo system. I'm only looking to add wireless satellite speakers (10 Answers)
I have an amp that is the center of my complete home AV system. The sources broadcast from the amp are AM/FM, TV, CD, Spotify and Pandora, The Denon amp has WiFi and LAN connections and receives Bluetooth. I have wired main speakers in the living room. I'm only looking to add one wireless satellite speaker each in to two rooms. I typically will play the same content to all rooms. My WiFi signal is quite strong throughout the house. Are two Sonos speakers the only equipment I need? Which models? Or do I need the Sonos Connect with 2 Sonos speakers?

Sonos. Without a doubt, the best wireless audio equipment that is out there. Pricey, but well worth it and you won't regret it. You shouldn't need the Sonos Connect if your receiver has wireless "broadcasting" capability. The wireless Sonos speakers can connect to whatever wireless broadcast source you specify. If not, then you can hook up a Sonos Connect to your receiver and use it as an input source (though I don't think that will be necessary).

- QuestionCan both outputs (digital and analog) function simultaneously? (5 Answers)
I'd like to hook this up to an FM transmitter (because my property is too big for WiFi or the Sonos network to reach my garage) and also to a receiver/speaker system in my house. This requires two outputs. Can the Connect provide output to both digital and analog connections (using the same stream) simultaneously? Thanks!Answers
Yes the Sonos Connect can provide simultaeneous output to all output ports at the same time. My living room Connect's optical output is connected to a NAD 375's DAC, the coax out is connected to a Denon HT receiver, the analog L/R out is connected to a bose pc speaker. All devices can play the same signal at the same time if needed. On top of that, my Sonos Connect's input L/R ports are connected to a set-top box. This allows for the set top box to trigger and send TV audio content to my remote Sonos play 1 without affecting the signal on the Sonos Connect itself.

- QuestionMy question is: I have a turntable hooked up to a receiver on my existing system (audio and ground) and want to know other than the sono speakers, what else do I need to get to play the Vinyl through the sono speakers? (2 Answers)Answers
There are a couple of methods of connecting a turntable with Sonos, 1st if your turntable is connected and playing thru your existing stereo receiver and the receiver has an audio line level output ( sometimes labelled tape out) then run a patch cable between it and the external input on the Sonos connect. Then select the external audio for the connect from any play1 play3 play5 play at or connect amp location and play your vinyl! Method 2 if your receiver doesn't have any line level output, purchase a phono pre-amp that converts to line output and connect it to the external input on the Sonos connect. Then play back the same as above.

- QuestionI have a Yamaha RX375 receiver that powers in-ceiling speakers in 4 different rooms. Does it matter if I connect Sonos to the Yamaha using the optical port or the red/white component ports? Can I then also connect to other Sonos wireless speakers? (2 Answers)Answers
The Sonos Connect has two digital outputs and one analog output. The difference depends in the quality of the DAC of the Yamaha RX375 versus to one built into the Sonos player. The Yamaha is using a 192kHz/24-bit Burr-Brown digital-to-analog converter, not sure what chipset, they tend to have better than average electronics. I never heard really bad opinions regarding the Sonos DAC and when feeding the Yamaha via the analog inputs other DSP circuitry can have a bigger impact on your listening experience. Connect both digital and analog and compare the sound. Go with the one that feels better for your ears, room and music.
