I'm not sure of the details, but I think the Sonos can receive Bluetooth Signals, and there are a few Bluetooth Turntables out there. Yamaha makes one but I know there are others, rare, but they are definitely out there.
The underlying question is, does the PLAY:5 have an AUX inputs? That I can tell it does not. So I'm not sure how you connect a Turntable to it. Other than the suggested Bluetooth, which assumes that the PLAY:5 has Bluetooth capability.
If the PLAY5 does have an AUX input, then you just need to make sure the signal going in is Line Level, and not directly from the Turntable. If the Turntable has a built in Phono Equalization Pre-Amp, then that solves that problem. If it does not have a Phono Equalization Pre-Amp, then you will have to buy an external Pre-Amp, which need not be exceptionally expensive -
The only thing you may or may not need is a Phono Equilization Pre-Amp. Check and see if you have one built into the turntable, if not then you will have to buy one. The one I suggested (Project Phono Box MM) is as good as any in its price range. (£60)
Denon DP-400 (with pre-amp built in)
These would be in the same room as hub but not close enough for an ethernet connection. Presume wi-if would be suitable? Also, believe they connect using an aux cable? Pics attached showing back of Sonos Connect and DP-400.
Also, have 2 x Sonos play 1 which will be on a separate unit. They are a few years old now but presume they will still be recognised by the connect?
