Scotty, we need more power! 

When Sonos spoke to the custom install community about improvements on the Connect Amp there was a single dominant consensus: more power. The Connect Amp’s modest 50-watts per channel of output simply couldn’t cater to some of the markets more demanding passive speakers. Smart Home users were keen to integrate their AV networks with the Sonos ecosystem but the lack of amplification was limiting. That was until now. With a whopping 128-watts into 8 ohms of grunt, the all-new Sonos Amp comes packing more than twice the power of its predecessor.

Clean connections.

A streamlined set of ports at the back of Amp make setup simple and keep your cords organised. The threaded connections for left and right channels are standard diameter so you can remove them and use your own banana plugs.

 

Whether it’s a pair of your favourite vintage loudspeakers, a beautiful set of floorstanders, bookshelf,  in-ceiling, in-walls, outdoors – whatever, the Sonos Amp delivers. But more than just a power amplifier option for passive speakers, the Sonos Amp’s versatility extends to both input and output stages. Offering both analogue (RCA) and digital (HDMI ARC) inputs, the Sonos Amp can be connected to almost any audio source. So you can dust off those old records and drop the needle on some serious analogue tunes, connect a CD player as well as your home television all thanks to the Amp. And it’s stunning design means the Sonos Amp will make the perfect component feature for any room.

 

However, all things considered, the Sonos Amp is aimed squarely at the custom install and AV market as a serious multi-room streaming option for in-ceiling, in-wall, and outdoor speakers. This is Sonos for the serious Smart Home user. It can be stacked either vertically or side-by-side and is AV rack-mountable. And to show that Sonos are delivering choice to the Smart Home sound experience, they’ve retained the Connect Amp’s sub out to allow for in-ceiling or in-wall subwoofer options. Two ethernet jacks allow for hardwiring of both the amp and a secondary Sonos device, and removable thumb-screw speaker terminals mean exposed speaker wire or banana plug connections can be made.


Whether you’re looking to power up your favourite pair of loudspeakers or begin building that perfect AV rack for the ultimate Smart Home solution, the all-new Sonos Amp is a versatile, stylish and incredibly powerful choice.

Hi, how much will the new Sonos amp retail for in Australia when it is released in February?

Do you think the amp would drive a pair of KEF LS50 passive speakers nicely? Or would I be better served with the KEF LS50 powered speakers and a Sonos Connect to hook up with my other Sonos gear?

Regards,

David
