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.

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 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 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.

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.

Play music from Spotify straight to Sonos.

Enjoy all the personalized Spotify playlists and other listening features you love and more - without ever opening your Sonos app.

      Comments about SONOS CONNECT:AMP:

      I bought my Sonos system in 2008. I gutted a townhouse in Baltimore and part of the wishlist was music in every room. I have 10 pairs of Bose speakers installed in the walls and ceilings throughout the house (including bathrooms and laundry room) I paid special attention to the family room and made sure I put in enough speakers for a home theater system. All the Sonos amps are homerun to the basement with speaker wire going directly to each speaker - it was a large undertaking. The results are tremendous. The house rocks and sound quality is superb. My girlfriends 10 year old daughter would bring a friend when they came to visit and the kids would go to the master bath they called the Spa, we would put their music in that room and still be able to enjoy other-than-teeny bopper music in the rest of the house. Everybody wins! I am so glad I installed Sonos. Great system

          Comments about SONOS CONNECT:AMP:

          Originally tried a pair of the Play 3 speakers. I realizd that while they sound fine, I am very attached to a pair of floor sitting Klipsch speakers that I have had for 20 plus years. I returned the Play 3 and purchased the Connect:Amp as an alternative. I am absolutely thrilled with it. The setup very easy and the sound generated thru my old Klipsch speakers is wonderful. The ease of havng all streaming music accessible thru the Sonos App is great. I could not be happier with how this came together!
