Our goal at Sonos is to fill every home with sound. A big part of that comes from connecting us all to the digital world: from podcasts to music streaming to internet radio, it’s never been easier to listen to everything you love.

 

However, the rise of streaming hasn’t led us to forget the importance of the physical in defining our musical identities. Vinyl’s come to represent a return to simpler pleasures; the sight, sound and even smell of an LP tells its own story in a way that playlisting cannot.

Many would argue that vinyl never truly went away, but album listening clubs and Record Store Day have all contributed to a cultural renaissance and a 25-year high in sales.

So, with vinyl stronger than ever, we’ve made it simple to hook up your turntable to your Sonos system and listen out loud to all the records you love.

Once connected, you can enjoy the best of all worlds. Whether spinning or streaming, you can listen to all your music, all in one place, and fill your home with sound.

Here’s how…

Step 1: Connect your turntable to your Sonos player

To do this, you’ll need one of these:

Play:5
Connect
Connect:Amp  (+ Stereo Mini to RCA Y-Audio Cable)

How to connect to…

Play:5

Plug your turntable directly into our biggest home speaker with the boldest sound, straight through its line-in functionality.

Plug one end of an audio cable into the headphone jack of your turntable, the other into the line-input at the back of your speaker.

Connect

Use your amplified audio equipment to play your vinyl collection to more rooms with Sonos Connect.

Just take the audio cable that comes with your Connect, plug the single end into the headphone jack of your turntable, and plug the split end into the corresponding colours of the L/R inputs on the back of your Connect.

Connect:Amp

Plug your turntable and speakers you already own directly into Connect:Amp, and enjoy music on all the speakers in your home over a rock-solid wireless network.

Using the stereo mini to RCA Y-audio cable that comes in the box, plug the single end into the headphone jack of the audio player, and attach the split cable to the corresponding colours of the L/R audio inputs on the back of your Connect:Amp.

Step 2: Switch the audio source on your Sonos controller to line-in

Open the Sonos app on your phone, tablet, PC or Mac. Go to the Music Menu and select Line-in. Choose the source of your music from this menu. Then press Play Now and the record playing on your turntable will start playing on your selected Sonos speaker.

Step 3: Connecting up to whole house

To fill your home with music and the sounds of the vinyl you love, head to the Rooms menu and select as many speakers that you want to join the party.
