In this paper, we study conditions for extending Quillen model category properties , between two symmetric monoidal categories, to their associated category of symmetric sequences and of operads. Given a Quillen equivalence $\lambda: \mathcal{C}=Ch_{\Bbbk,t} \leftrightarrows \mathcal{D}: R,$ so that $\mathcal{D}$ is any symmetric monoidal category and the adjoint pair $(\lambda, R)$ is weak monoidal, we prove that the categories of connected operads $Op_\mathcal{C}$ and $Op_\mathcal{D}$ are Quillen equivalent. This expands an analogous result of Schwede-Shipley(\cite{SS03}) when we replace these categories of operads with the sub-categories of $\mathcal{C}$-Monoid and $\mathcal{D}$-monoid.
