Using A Turntable With Sonos

Using A Turntable With Sonos

Can you use a turntable with Sonos? YES. Here's the basics to get you plugged in and playing. 

1.0 Can You Use A Turntable With Sonos?

Yes, all turntables will work with Sonos.

2.0 I am new to turntables and vinyl, is there anything I should know before setting up the system?

Most turntables will not work with Sonos without a phono preamp (note that many turntables have a built-in preamp).

A phono preamp converts your turntable output signal to be able to work with Sonos' inputs. You can read more about phono preamps in our Turntable Guide. You can shop our selection of phono preamps here.

3.0 Visual Cheat Sheet

4.0 Will I need additional cables?

All Sonos systems above come with necessary RCA cable EXCEPT PLAY:5. You will need a Y-Cable (RCA to 3.5mm Stereo). Here are some Y-Cable recommendations:
- If you need a pre-amp, Midrange: Audioquest Evergreen Y Cable
- If you need a pre-amp, Deluxe (Our Pick): Kimber Kable Y Cable
- If you need a pre-amp, High-end: Audioquest Sydney Y Cable
- If your turntable has a built-in pre-amp, use Audioquest FLX-Mini Female Y-Cable
