New life for 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 favorite 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 in any room. Add on.

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

Control with one app.

Pick a room. Pick a song. Hit play.

Never obsolete.

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 easy.

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 favorite music, send it to different rooms, and adjust the volume and other settings. You don’t even have to be in the same room. And if your friends have the Sonos app, they can do the same.

Check out the app

Over 30 music streaming services available.

Sonos plays everything–the most popular streaming services, on-demand Internet radio, your favorite 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 any audio device to your CONNECT:AMP—from your amplified record player to 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. It was called a Zone Player back then and was designed for all the audiophiles in the world (like us) who simply loved the audio equipment they already owned. It still is. And thanks to our regular, ongoing software updates, CONNECT:AMP has continued to get better and better over time.

Multi-room music.

One room of streaming music is great. But a house full 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.

      Comments about SONOS CONNECT:AMP:

      I bought a house with four pairs of built in speakers but the previous owner took all the electronics, fortunately for me. The Sonos Amp is driving all eight speakers with plenty of volumn and clarity. It took me five minutes to fully install and test.

        Bought two, will buy another!

        By Greg

        from Narberth, PA

          Comments about SONOS CONNECT:AMP:

          Our new house had speakers installed in the ceiling of three rooms (kitchen, living, master bed). All the wires exited the wall at one location. We have previously only used bluetooth or audio from the tv. Nothing special. So we had no amp, receiver, anything.

          The Sonos Connect Amp was a wonderful and simple solution for us. We initially bought two, one each for the two kitchen speakers and two living room speakers, and we will be getting a third for the bedroom soon.

          The Sonos system and app are great. With the system, we can control volume jointly or independently for both the kitchen and the living room, or play entirely different audio on each at the same time. The app's interface is super easy to setup and use. This system lets us fill our house with music, and couldn't be easier to setup and use.
