Give new life to your old speakers.

Wouldn’t it be great if you could stream music using the speakers you already own? With CONNECT:AMP you can – and you don’t even need a receiver. It turns your favourite pair of passive (aka non-powered, non-amplified) speakers into a streaming machine so you can teach them some amazing new tricks.


Set up over Wifi.

Plug in. Connect. Stream without interruptions or interference.

Start with any room. Add on later.

Play different songs in different rooms. Or the same song everywhere.

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Keeps getting better.

Software updates mean the product you buy today will be even better tomorrow.


Any speaker, any room. Indoors and out.

Bookshelf, floor-standing, outdoor, in-ceiling or in-wall. CONNECT:AMP powers all the speakers you own and love. For non-stop outdoor listening, CONNECT:AMP works with patio or poolside speakers too.

Sets up easily.

Attach CONNECT:AMP to your speakers using standard speaker wire. Plug it in. Connect it to your WiFi using the Sonos app for uninterrupted wireless music streaming.

One app. Complete music control.

The Sonos app helps you quickly search through all your services to track down your favourite music, play it and adjust the volume in different rooms throughout the home. You don’t even have to be in the same room as a speaker. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same.

Check out the app.

Over 30 streaming services available.

Sonos plays everything: the most popular streaming services, on-demand services, internet radio, your favourite podcasts and audiobooks, your go-to collection of downloads—whatever you love to listen to.

Explore music services.

Amplify your speakers.

CONNECT:AMP has a built-in class-D digital amplifier that delivers 55W per channel of audiophile quality sound to your speakers. You can even adjust the sound to get the bass, treble, balance, and loudness just the way you like it. And the aluminum casing passively cools the amplifier so all you hear is the music.

Grab your aux cord.

Plug in an audio device to your CONNECT:AMP—whether it’s an amplified record player or a friend’s phone—and listen out loud on your speakers. You can also enjoy it on any other Sonos speaker in your home.

A Sonos original.

CONNECT:AMP was one of our very first products at Sonos, long before stand-alone speakers were even a twinkle in our eye. Back then it was called a Zone Player, and it was designed for all the audiophiles in the world (like us) who simply loved the audio equipment they already owned. And it still is. Plus, thanks to our regular software updates, CONNECT:AMP continues to get better and better over time.

Multi-room music.

One room of music is great. But a houseful is even better. That’s the power of the Sonos Home Sound System. Fill more rooms with music by simply adding more Sonos speakers and components. They all work together seamlessly so you can play different songs in different rooms, or the same song everywhere.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

Enjoy all the personalised Spotify playlists and other listening features you love and more, streaming in perfect sound on your Sonos speakers, without needing to open your Sonos app.

      I run the connect:amp with a macbook pro and either linn kan speakers or ej jordan jx92s in a vtl cabinet, nice clean sound, easy to setup. The design and look of the amp also looks great sitting on a table or cabinet, one of the best looking amps on the planet

      Comments about SONOS CONNECT:AMP:

      My Connect:Amp has been set-up to stream music from my NAS through a pair of wired speakers. In this context the mobile application is excellent! Albums, artists, tracks and more are very accessible given the superb search functionality. All is quickly and easily configured. The best bit is the convenience of being able to play any music instantly. In summary, a complete hi-fi system that sounds fine for the cost of the amp, NAS and speakers. A good start, either as a stand-alone system (as configured) or one that leads to building out music services across the home. From a design perspective it is relatively discrete in the room.

      In a 'wireless' network configuration, I am aware that friends have experienced minor issues and 'drop-outs'; hence my preference for direct wiring. Consequently, it would be useful if the Connect:Amp had more power and connectivity. Given the choice of hi-fi products available, I am still searching for the optimum 'solution' and performance as I seek to stream music across the home.

      The Connect:Amp, itself, is a very portable product, so as long as it can 'connect' to the NAS one advantage is that it is easily moved.
