The new Sonos Amp can power four wired speakers and accept signals from HDMI and analog-audio sources, integrating them all into the Sonos wireless whole-home audio ecosystem.
Today, Sonos unveils the newest member of its whole-home audio system: the Sonos Amp. It’s a home-audio hub that powers traditional wired speakers with signals from nearly any source, and it fully integrates those speakers into the Sonos wireless home-audio system. The all-new Sonos Amp is twice as powerful as its predecessor, the Connect:Amp, with the ability to power up to four speakers with 125 watts per channel.
The Sonos Amp is designed to fit perfectly into standard AV racks used by custom installers. Inputs include HDMI and line-level analog audio, and an HDMI output offers ARC (Audio Return Channel) for audio coming from a TV’s internal apps. Even better, source devices such as TVs, turntables, and CD players become part of a Sonos system
