View Full Version : streaming + older stereo components??

09-27-2014, 09:19 PM
I intend on buying speakers to listen to streamed content (spotify, you tube), but
also have a full set of older components.

Can i use my old stuff somehow with the streaming equipment (like Sonos or similiar)

Also I intend on some new speakers for existing old stereo in living room.
Is there way I could use one set of speakers.
Moving them room to room not a problem ( a subwoofer might be a drag )

Help!! I do have a lot of content in old formats like vinyl and CD's ( and yes Tape!)
However I now use spotify a lot.
No one seems to have a usable solution--- YET.
I will buy something for streaming no matter what.
I do intend on new speakers for older equipment (tuner, turntable, CD, tape, other seperates.

Smaller speakers might be ok, because of smallish living room, but sub woofer not out of question.

Thanks in advance,

your victim of Obsolescence

Hi, Paul,

Welcome to AR Forums.

It's typically no sweat to connect a streaming device to an older amp or receiver. Almost all such devices have Analog-Out RCA jacks that you can use to connect to your amp's CD, Aux, or Tape-In jacks.
