The perfect Sonos for many options
If you love Sonos but want to keep and integrate your own high quality speakers, then the Sonos Amp is for you. With a mighty 125 watts per channel, it’s ideal for all speakers, including floorstanders and installation speakers. A wide range of inputs also make the Amp ideal for connecting a TV, games console, turntable (with phono pre-amp) or other music device.

Powerful amp built-in
With a mighty 125 watts per channel, the Amp is over twice as powerful as the Sonos Connect Amp. This level of power makes all the difference with inefficient speakers or for when you’re running larger speakers that need to fill a big room with immersive sound. For even more bass, use the sub output to connect your choice of powered subwoofer.

Top quality sound
The Sonos Amp isn’t just about power, it’s about sound quality, too. Featuring a Direct-digital feedback amplifier with discrete output stage, the Amp uses separate components for the highest quality sound and lowest distortion. Obsessive attention to detail even runs to black, painted circuit boards. These radiate heat better, keeping the Amp cooler for longer.

Connect up your TV and Hi-Fi
A handy HDMI socket makes it easy to connect your TV. If you’ve no spare HDMI socket on your TV, then purchasing an optional Sonos optical to HDMI convertor lets you use the TV’s optical output. For hi-fi sources, the Amp has a set of line level RCA phonos. These are perfect for a CD player, turntable (with built-in phono pre-amp) or any other music source with a line level output.

Sonos streaming
Use the award-winning Sonos app to play all your music in all your rooms. Compatible with not just the music stored on your device but also over 80 streaming services, the Sonos app is the only music app you need. Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Google Play Music, Tidal, Napster and Deezer are just a handful of the most popular services supported.

The Sonos system
Sonos gets better when you add more speakers. Play a movie in your living room, a podcast in the kitchen or the same music across all your Sonos devices – flexibility is key. The latest Sonos components link via your home Wi-Fi but for very best results, linking one component to an Ethernet connection will allow you to take advantage of the famous Sonos 'Mesh' system.

Strength through numbers
The more components you add, the stronger the dedicated wireless mesh becomes. Best of all, because it runs independently from your Wi-Fi, the reliability and strength of the signal is unaffected by Wi-Fi dropouts.

AirPlay control
If you’d prefer to use Apple’s AirPlay instead of the Sonos app, then that’s not a problem with the Amp. AirPlay connects via your home’s Wi-Fi and lets you effortless stream audio from your Apple Mac, iPhone, iPod and other many other compatible devices.

Built for continuous improvement
With its smooth good looks, the Sonos Amp is designed to look every bit as good in years to come as it does now. Yet Sonos have taken the idea of design longevity further by engineering in the ability to update the electronics through future software updates.

Compatible with voice control devices
Simply connect to an Amazon Echo or Google Dot device over Wi-Fi and the Sonos Amp becomes part of your voice controlled smart home system.

Smart, thoughtful design
Every aspect of the Amp’s style has been thoroughly and thoughtfully designed. The compact design is easy to accommodate on a shelf or desk and can be stacked or placed side-by-side in a rack mounting system. The waffle-patterned base plate draws air through for efficient cooling and enhanced reliability. The Amp is one cool product; in every aspect of design

Good find. I think this is the cheapest I've seen it since it got released. There's also the benefit of the 6-year warranty when buying from Richer Sounds.
I'm a relative audio noob but I've managed to complete a 5.1 sonos tv set up, playbar, 2 x play 1s & sub. How would this benefit my setup?

It wouldn't add anything to your existing 5.1 setup but you could use it in a different room.

The Sonos "Amp" is intended to be used to replace a traditional hifi amplifier......so you can use it to drive a set of hifi speakers of your choice, while bringing the full functionality of Sonos.

Agree- probably best used on a system where the speakers need to be powered by an Amp (ie freestanding speakers) where you can then also introduce music streaming. Turntable systems and ceiling mounted speakers (which are also on offer right now) would benefit
Thanks Adam, ordered. 🏻
Has anyone used it with a computer? To have proper speakers and drive them from computer or Sonos.

The little bit of lag introduced by making the audio available over Sonosnet makes video watching difficult
Would love to power this with the Edifer S880 speakers that I am eyeing for but the cost of this is crazy... hmmmm.....

You don't need this for s880, which are active speakers. Sonos connect is for active speakers. Sonos Amp is for passive speakers.

Or made me £299 poorer
For those of you fancying a cheap new years project, have a look at the following link. Very interesting indeed, particularly if you have some unloved decent quality speakers knocking about!

An amp like this basically makes any given speaker produce a sound. Like the Bowers and Wilkins 607s for example- they're speakers but are passive speakers- they don't produce noise on their own. I'd need this AMP for them to come to life.

All of your sonos setup has built in amps, so you wouldn't need this item for your particular setup... Hope that helps.

Much cleaner option -
Is it as good as it is expensive?
I suppose it makes sense if you have a lot of sonos products already. But you could still hack your existing stereo using chromecast audio for next to nothing.
