What is the difference between Amp and Connect:Amp?
Amp is more powerful than Connect:Amp, supporting 125 Watts per channel versus 55 Watts per channel. Amp also features an HDMI ARC input for TV integration, allows control with Apple AirPlay 2, and supports Trueplay when powering Sonos Architectural by Sonance. Both Amp and Connect:Amp have RCA line-in options.
Will a single Amp power more than two passive speakers?
Amp can power two pairs of 8-ohm nominal passive speakers when wired in parallel. Amp can power three pairs of Sonos Architectural by Sonance wired in parallel.
Will Amp power a pair of 6-ohm speakers and a pair of 8-ohm speakers?
No. All speakers must have the same impedance rating and be wired in parallel.
Can a single Amp act as two zones?
No. Each Amp acts as one zone, meaning all speakers wired to a single Amp will play the same content at the same volume.
Can I connect my TV to Amp and wire four speakers, two front and two rear, if all are 8 ohms?
This setup requires two Amps, one to integrate the TV and power the front speakers and another to power the rear speakers.
Can I use streaming services with Amp?
Yes. You have access to dozens of streaming services through the Sonos app. You can also control your system directly from selected partner apps, including Spotify, or by using Apple AirPlay 2 with your iOS device.
How do I use my streaming service with Amp?
Streaming services are set up through the Sonos app. You can also use Apple AirPlay 2 on an iOS device or stream directly from certain music services, such as Spotify.
Can I connect my computer to Amp through HDMI and control volume and functions through the computer?
If your computer outputs audio through an HDMI ARC connection, you can use it to control Amp. Additionally, the Sonos HDMI Adapter (sold separately) allows you to connect a computer with an optical SPDIF output to Amp.
What is the damping factor on Amp?
The damping factor is approximately 400 with an 8-ohm speaker.
Do I need to use the banana plugs or can I do a straight wire connection?
For the best sound and most reliable performance, we recommend using banana plugs. Amp comes with custom-designed banana plugs and is designed to work with any standard banana plug. Amp can also accommodate a straight wire connection with 10 to 18 AWG wire.
