How to connect a turntable to Sonos

<= Back

Step 1:

Connect your turntable to your Sonos player:

To do this, you’ll need one of these:

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

Connect to a turntable, like the Essential III Phono Turntable from Pro-Ject, using the following instructions…


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.


Use your amplified audio equipment to bring 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 the split end into corresponding colors of the L/R inputs at the back of your Connect.


Plug your turntable and speakers you already own direct to Connect:Amp for rock solid wireless performance.

Plug the single end of an RCA Y-audio cable into the headphone jack of the audio player and attach the split cable to the corresponding colors of the L/R audio inputs on the back of the Sonos unit.

Step 2:

Switch the audio source on your Sonos controller to line-in, or set it up to autoplay when you drop the turntable needle.

Open the Sonos app on your phone or tablet. Go to the Browse Menu and select Line-In. Choose the source of your music. Then press Play Now and the record playing on your turntable will start up.

To set up autoplay. Select settings > room settings. Tap line-in >autoplay room and select the name of the player from the autoplay menu.

Step 3:

Connecting up to whole house:

To fill your home with music and the sounds of the vinyl you love, just select as many speakers you want via Rooms.
