I answered an almost identical question here in this post. The quick answer is: no.

 

The slightly longer answer is: while it might be possible it would not work as you would expect due to audio delays and using multiple remotes to control both systems volumes. You can read the post I shared above if you want to know a little more. But it really is an either-or situation and there isn't too much more to add.

 

If you want to try to get the best out of your 321 made a guide to help people do just that, but if that doesn't work it is simply best to replace the 321 with something that would work for your current needs.

 

I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for, but I hope that this helps solve your question.

Glad to help. Out of curiosity, what are you going to do? Replace the 321 system or keep it?
