Powerful digital amplifier delivers audiophile-quality sound in any room

  • Built-in, powerful digital amplifier

    Powers large or small speakers with 55W per channel.

  • Class-D amplifier

    State of the art, great sounding amplifier is small, lightweight and very energy efficient.

  • Radiant cooling

    Operates silently — all you hear is the music, as the amplifier is kept cool by the aluminum casing, not by a noisy fan.

  • Tone and volume controls adjustable for each room

    Optimise sound performance for each room using room-specific bass, treble, balance, and loudness controls. Adjust volume by individual room or by groups of rooms.

  • Subwoofer output with automatic crossover

    When adding a subwoofer, the CONNECT:AMP automatically adjusts the output to send the low frequencies to the subwoofer and the high frequencies to the speaker.

Access all your music

  • Pre-loaded Internet radio stations, free of charge

    Get over 100,000 free radio stations, shows, and podcasts, all for free. And you can tune in without turning on your computer: browse for stations, or type in specific call letters or a radio host you love.

  • Endless music from the most popular online music services

    Sonos works seamlessly with Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer, Radio by TuneIn, SiriusXM, Google Play Music, SoundCloud, Amazon Music, iHeartRadio, Rhapsody, Rdio, Qobuz, TIDAL and downloads from any service offering DRM-free tracks. (Service availability varies by region.)

  • Computer-free music playback

    Get instant access to millions of songs and thousands of radio stations without ripping, downloading, or even turning on a computer. Sonos connects directly to these services over the Internet and then streams the music to the rooms of your choice.

  • Play the music on your computer in any room

    Play music stored on up to 16 PCs, Macs or NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices on your home network, supporting the most popular audio formats, from iTunes® to MP3.

  • Stream music from an iPhone®, iPad™ or iPod touch®

    Sonos wirelessly plays your iTunes® music, direct from your iPhone®, iPad® or iPod touch®, to any room in your home.

  • Play music and audio from a CD or MP3 player, and more throughout the home

    An analog audio input lets you connect to an external audio source (such as a CD or MP3 player, or radio) and play that music or audio on all Sonos players in the system.

Other cool features

  • Wake up to music

    Set the alarm and wake up to your favourite music or Internet radio station in one room, or all over the house. Just hit snooze to get a few minutes more sleep. Fall asleep to soothing music with the sleep timer.

  • Schedule your music

    Use the scheduler to play music at a specific time for a set duration — great for that 30-minute workout.

  • Easy Internet connectivity for other products in your house

    The CONNECT:AMP has a two-port Ethernet switch to bring standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, DVR, PC, game console or NAS drive.

  • Includes Sonos Desktop Controller software and setup software for your computer

    Control all your music and all your rooms from any computer or laptop in your house. Setup software facilitates music sharing so music folders on your hard drive can be shared across all Sonos players.

  • Front-panel play/pause controls

    Provides quick access to music, volume and play/pause controls when you don’t have a Controller in hand.  Press the Mute button once to start or stop the music and twice to skip to the next track.

Control your Sonos system with your smartphone, tablet or PC

  • Control all your music and rooms with your Android™ device, iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad™, PC, or Mac.

    Free Sonos Controller apps for Android, iPhone, iPad, PC, and Mac let you control your Sonos players, music on the Internet and your computer right from the palm of your hand. Download the mobile apps for free on the iTunes App Store or Google Play™. Download the PC and Mac apps.

  • Integrated, multi-room control

    If you have multiple Sonos speakers, you can control what's playing in any room from anywhere in your house.

  • Find and play your favourite songs in an instant

    Search for songs and stations, choose the music, and control the volume from anywhere in your home.

Wireless multi-room music with SonosNet

  • Built-in wireless capability

    The CONNECT:AMP can go anywhere, delivering music to any room in your house, wirelessly. Players and Controllers establish their own secure wireless mesh network that delivers the extensive range and superior performance you need to get music all over your house.

  • Play a different song in every room, at the same time

    Tune in to an Internet radio station in the bedroom, stream a music service in the kitchen and play a song from your music library in the living room — simultaneously.

  • Listen to the same song in every room, in perfect synchronisation

    Play the same song in different rooms, simultaneously, without echoes or delays. Add or drop rooms from your rooms grouping and still be in sync.

Simple setup and expandable design

  • Simple setup

    No technical or wireless expertise required.  Put a CONNECT:AMP in any room where you want music and connect it to your home WiFi network using the free Sonos Controller App.  The Sonos System Setup software provides simple on-screen prompts on any Sonos CONTROL.  With the touch of a few buttons, you’ll be playing music all over the house in minutes.

  • Expandable wireless system

    Expand your music system room by room — without adding wires. Add new Sonos components with the press of a single button.

    I set up outdoor speakers for the pool area.
    I purchased the Sonos Connect-Amp and WOW!

    When music is playing it's as if I have a concert with that specific artist going on!

    -It's like riding first class on a plane. Once you have the experience and understand what you have been missing, you can never go back to flying coach!

      Most disappointed that Trueplay is not included on this item. I have two gen 2 Play fives that have benefited greatly from Trueplay. I'm sure that a modified form of Trueplay could be added that does not need characteristics of the speakers to be known.
      Your tv needs to be able to adjust for 70ms lipsynch delay.

          all previous home theaters were not well equipped to deal with speakers in different rooms at different levels, let alone outdoor speakers with a slighlty different impedence. This solved the problem

          The unit is small and fits 'quiet' in a cabinet near the wall jack for the external analog (hard wired) speakers

                We've been looking for a way to access our music library on the computer and play it on our traditional stereo system. the Sonos Connect is the answer. Easy to setup and control plus the radio feature is awesome. We've since added a Sonos 1 speakers and now have music in other parts of the house. So easy to setup. I'm a fan.

                            Love my new Sonos system. First time owner... we have two zones, thus two Connect Amps. They are not super powerful but good enough for normal home use for sure. They sound great. There is EQ and Balance available in the sonos app, which I thank God for !!! Small, a little pricey, but worth it! Easy to set up.

                            This is really nice to drive one set of speakers at a time. I have 5 sets wired throughout my house. I currently manually switch to the room I would like the music playing. The phone app is awesome for controlling the music and volume. Best use has been deck and bedroom speakers. Sound is very clear outside from the deck speakers, in stereo, with ample volume to hear clearly upto 80 feet away from the house

                            Installed 14 zones with hard-wired in-ceiling speakers. Wall-mounted iPad minis on each floor (4)for in-room access/control.

                            Only downside is that voice command integration with Echo/Alex and iPads/Siri is apparently only through Bluetooth. But my system is hardwired throughout. :-( Is there an alternative solution?

                                I use this amp for my outdoor speakers by the pool. I have Apple Music on my I phone and it is super easy to control with the Sonos app. Any song I want, any time I want. Great sound as well.

                                    bought house with 4 rooms with in wall 8 ohm speakers. wired through niles ss-4 can play any 2 rooms.
                                    amp has plenty of reserve to play 2 pairs at moderate volume. too bad sonos does not offer switch

It was easy to set up and works flawlessly. We are amazed at how easy it is to stream so much music and how good it sounds,

                                              I bought 2 connect amps; 1 for my patio area and 1 for the pool area. The amp is easy to set up and the app works great! The only negative is I was afraid to leave them in the attic so I had to use more speaker wire to get them in conditioned storage space.

                                                      Questions?

                                                      1. Do I need a BOOST?

                                                        Use a BOOST if you’re worried about your home WiFi performance.

                                                        Connecting a Sonos unit to your router with an Ethernet cable automatically creates a dedicated Sonos wireless network. Any player or a BOOST can make this hard-wired connection. A dedicated Sonos network is ideal when your WiFi isn’t reliable in your home.

                                                      2. Where does the music come from?

                                                        The music on Sonos comes from your favourite music streaming services, your personal music library and Internet radio stations from around the world. Access all your music within the Main Menu of the Sonos App.

                                                      3. Do you make an outdoor speaker?

                                                        No, but they're all light and portable. As long as there's an outlet, you've got Sonos. The speaker units that we sell, the PLAY:1, PLAY:3 and PLAY:5, are not weather-rated. They can certainly be moved outside, but they are not designed to live outside unless they are in a covered space. If you are looking for a permanent outdoor zone of music, you can use our CONNECT:AMP unit with traditional weather-rated speakers.

                                                      4. Will Sonos work with my existing equipment?

                                                        Already have a Stereo? Use the CONNECT.

                                                        The CONNECT is designed specifically to integrate with an external amplifier/receiver, and bring Sonos functionality to a third party system. Once you have a CONNECT hooked up to your stereo system, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                        Have a pair of speakers? The CONNECT:AMP is all you need.

                                                        If you have existing wired speakers that are not currently driven by amplifier, you can use a CONNECT:AMP to bring Sonos functionality to your speakers. Once you wire your speakers to a CONNECT:AMP, you can stream digital music and control the music selection and volume from the Sonos app.

                                                      5. Can I connect Sonos to my TV?

                                                        PLAYBAR is the only soundbar that delivers outstanding Hi-Fi Sound for your TV and is a complete Wireless HiFi System that plays all the music on earth. It is simple to set-up, control and expand throughout your home. With only an optical cable connecting PLAYBAR to your TV, you can control it with your regular TV remote or with the free Sonos apps on iOS, Android, Mac and PC.

                                                        PLAYBAR is the core piece in a Sonos home theatre solution. If you want dramatically deeper bass, you can add our wireless SUB. If you're looking for surround sound, you can use two PLAY:1s or two PLAY:3s as wireless rear surrounds.

                                                      6. Can I connect more than 2 speakers to the CONNECT:AMP?

                                                        The CONNECT:AMP is designed for a single pair of speakers - it is a stereo amplifier, right and left channel. However, if your speakers are rated at 8 ohms, you can wire up to 2 pairs, or 4 speakers, to one CONNECT:AMP - you just won’t have independent control between those two pairs of speakers, in terms of volume and music selection.  ×

                                                        The PLAY:1, PLAY:3 AND PLAY:5 can easily be setup as a stereo pair, using the controller app. If you are looking for more distinction between the left and right channels, you can use any two matching Sonos speakers in a stereo pair. Creating a stereo pair is a simple software toggle which turns one speaker into a dedicated left and the other into a dedicated right. Stereo pairing creates a wider stereo experience to help you hear every instrument and vocal more discretely, and fill a room more evenly with sound.

                                                      8. Which speaker is right for my room?

                                                        All of our speakers sound great in any room; which speaker is best for your particular room depends on your desired room experience. For many, the PLAY:1 will provide an incredible music experience with deep bass and plenty of power. Consider upgrading to a PLAY:3 or PLAY:5, or to a stereo pair of speakers if you:

                                                        • Want deeper bass
                                                        • Want more power
                                                        • Have the space to set up two players in stereo pair mode

                                                      9. How do I choose between a PLAY:5 and a stereo pair of PLAY:1s?

                                                        While both options deliver an incredible music experience, each has its unique benefits. The differences:

                                                        • Choose PLAY:5 for maximum power and the deepest bass.
                                                        • Choose a stereo pair of PLAY:1s to create a wider sound stage, allowing every vocal and instrument to be heard more discretely.
