Listen to music from your computer and the Internet on any speakers

Get ready for more of your favorite music in any room of your house. The Sonos® CONNECT:AMP makes it simple, and you won't have to run wires around your home. Hook this amplified music player up to a pair of speakers, and it connects to the Internet and your computer wirelessly — either with your existing Wi-Fi® network or by creating its own dedicated network with a wired connection with the Sonos BOOST (sold separately).

ZonePlayer 120

Powerful amplifier for crystal-clear playback

A built-in 55-watt-per-channel amplifier delivers your music in full-bodied, dynamic stereo sound. And the CONNECT:AMP's compact design means it can fit in much smaller spaces than traditional stereo components.

Pair this player with Audioengine's high-performance P4 speakers for a great-sounding — and cosmetically matched — system.

Sonos controllers

You probably already own a Sonos controller

You can use an iPhone®, iPod touch®, iPad®, or Android™ phone to control any and all Sonos players. A free download turns your smartphone and tablet into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Easily navigate and search through playlists and tracks stored on your computer, or select an Internet radio station. Create customized playlists on the fly for individual rooms or for playback over your entire Sonos system. You can also mute or adjust the volume of each of your players.

Rhapsody®, Pandora® Internet radio, SiriusXM, and more at your fingertips

The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet-based digital music services, including Rhapsody, Pandora, Spotify, Napster®, and SiriusXM Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations. SiriusXM Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora creates customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favorite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.

Play music stored on your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod touch®

Sonos now gives you convenient wireless access to music and podcasts stored in the Music app of iOS devices, for playback throughout your entire Sonos system. This function works on devices running iOS6 or later (see below for full list of compatible Apple devices). The system even lets you connect multiple Apple players at once. For instance, you can queue up songs from your iPhone to play in the kitchen while you cook, and your spouse can stream a podcast in the den at the same time.

Expand your Sonos system

You can have up to 32 Sonos music players in your system, and each one can play an independent selection of individual tracks or playlists. Listen to jazz in the den while your spouse plays rock music in the kitchen, or pump a single playlist of songs throughout the entire house during a party.

Never thought it would happen...

Written By Frank C., Rhinebeck, New York on Sunday, November 29, 2015

I never thought that I would be able to transfer my gigantic compact disc collection to iTunes, and have it play effortless throughout my home. The Sonos is pure magic; and my ability to control everything from my iPad to my iPhone is effortless. In the past few years, I have often thought that my investment in these compact disks was totally lost. However, with my Sonos, I am listening to albums that I probably would never have listen to again if they remained in my compact disc carousel. In addition, I cannot say enough about the quality Of the Sonos support in getting started. For those of us who have such large compact disc collections, this is definitely the only way to go. I cannot say enough in praise of Sonos.


Written By David, Minnesota on Sunday, November 22, 2015

I have 3 of these units so far and they have performed flawlessly.

Cons: They are pricey.

Connect amp, sonos

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product that does everything it said it would. This is a great addition to the main system to expand the use of the homes in ceiling speakers. It was very easy to hook up. Five star. I do wish it would come in flat black so it didn't stand out as it does in white. This is a small price to pay for such a great product.

My 1st Sonos Connect/AMP

Written By halvonny, North Carolina on Thursday, October 22, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

As the title indicates, this is my 1st experience with a SONOS product. I was definitely skeptical about using a WiFi signal as an input. However, I quickly discovered that the actual sound quality depends more on the service that's being used as a source, vs, the SONOS connect/AMP itself. My advice is to select the best Hi-Fidelity service your pocketbook will allow, and you'll experience cd-quality music, or better! The SONOS connect/AMP unit itself is an amazing piece technology; fairly compact in size, yet providing both a powerful & clear signal to your speakers. p.s., I'd suggest using 16-ga. stranded CL-2 speaker wire.

Pros: (As provided in my review)

Cons: (...none to date)

Sonos Connect Amp

Written By PFH, California on Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Another great Sonos product to go with the great technical support. When contacted and told that this would be used to drive outdoor speakers, they anticipated the possible connections that I would be making and addressed my concerns before I knew that I had any. Great product

Pros: Simple to connect to the rest of the Sonos System. Small and stylish design provides flexibility in where it will be located. Flexible connections enable multiple speaker to be connected

Cons: A little pricey, but the convenience, capabilities and performance offset this.

Wonderful Product but Pricey - Use Everyday

Written By GeoffreyB, the Washington, DC Area on Sunday, October 04, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sonos connect amp is a great way to utilize existing hardwired speakers. We bought a house with several speakers mounted in the ceiling. All the wires throughout the house ended in one closet. The biggest problem in set up was figuring out which speaker wire went to which room. The Sonos set up was easy. We mainly use Sonos to play existing streaming radio stations (NPR) and music through Pandora.

Pros: Ease of set up. Ease of use from Smartphone

Cons: Price - never discounted $499 everywhere. Connect Amp only runs 4 speakers. It gets even more pricey running multiple rooms because you have to buy more than one unit at $499 a piece.

A little pricey, but it delivers!

Written By JohnMcG, Connecticut on Tuesday, September 08, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sonos line in general is a little pricey, but they never fail to deliver a robust, high-quality product. We have the Soundbar/sub combo, a Play5 and a couple of Play1's. The Connect:Amp allowed me to utilize an older Bose Acoustimass 7 system and everything just sounds great. Typical Sonos - easy to connect, easy to use, sounds great.

Cons: None

Great for simple home stereo set up

Written By Andrew, Tennessee on Tuesday, June 23, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptical that the Connect Amp would be suitable to drive my Polk RTIA7 speakers but I have been more than delighted with the sound they produce.

Pros: Love how easy it is to stream music from my family's Ipods/Ipads/Iphones and computers. We can all queue up the next song to play, or lay in bed and start the music effortlessly. Great!

Cons: Not so much a con for the amp, just frustrated that some of my iTunes DRM protected songs cannot be played via streaming.

Works Great

Written By GarryL, Washington on Sunday, June 21, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I had to replace a Whole house sound system Amplifier/controller which died after four years!!! Replacement meant buying a new unit and paying a dealer to install and program it. The Sonos product was able to replace the whole system for a few dollars more for the hardware. The programming and set up were a snap. Sonos leads you thru the set up. I was able to connect the Music Server to the Sonos connect and the Home Theater receiver/Amp video receiver to the Sonos connect Amp. Between the music service apps, music on our computers, Music server, Smart TV, Satellite TV and the Home Theater receiver/Amp we have more music choices that ever.

Pros: Easy to install, Wide choice of music services, and a lot documentation on line.

Cons: One amp required for each set of hardwired speakers. Therefor a large amount of space is required.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was reluctant to purchase the SONOS system for our house due to the price; however, I could not be more pleased with the product. In fact, I've bought a second Connect Amp and am planning on 2 additional units in the future. The performance and ease of use is superior to all the alternatives I've tried and researched. Also, the service from Crutchfield is outstanding as always.

Pros: Ease of Use Outstanding Performance

Cons: Cost

Written By Gene S., Wisconsin on Tuesday, May 19, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to connect the SONOS system to a set of in-wall speakers by our hot tub. This allowed me to eliminate a much larger receiver and have more source options.

Pros: Simple to setup

Cons: It gets expensive to keep adding rooms

Almost Perfect

Written By ScottHB, California on Tuesday, April 28, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Most people put cost as a con to Sonos: I say, NO WAY! Sonos delivers great value for the money. I over-analyzed all options for our new construction project and went with hard-wired speakers back to a closet full of Connect:amps. Best possible system for the money.Connect:amp replaces a whole bunch of gear in the AV closet and Sonos allows me to add rooms that are NOT hardwired to the system as budget allows. Whole-home audio a piece at a time.

Pros: Easy to set up, easy to use. Flexible, versatile. Whole home audio made DIY easy. Great value. Crutchfield performed flawlessly: Quick delivery, great service. Every online shopping experience should be measured by them. Good work!

Cons: No YouTube support (are you listening Sonos?). Big miss!

Easy Setup, Quality Sound

Written By RiverRunner, Arizona on Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great product, easy install and setup, great quality sound, and a great app to mix and play music from my iTunes library on my iPhone. Where AirPlay fails miserably on the Airport Express, Sonos shines bright.

Pros: Easy setup, quality sound, great App.

Cons: In box instructions and startup guide not clear. Once I realized the iPhone app performs the setup it was easy.

Set up was a little unclear, kept shutting down my home network. Trial and error fixed the problems. Love the app!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This was very simple to setup. I connected the power and the speaker wires, downloaded the app on my computer, and within about 15 minutes I was playing music. Most of that time was waiting as it cataloged my music library- the setup was very simple and worked flawlessley.I'm using it all the time now!

Pros: Easy setup, app based control. compact and attractive design.`

Cons: None.

Written By Stephanie, St Petersburg, FL on Wednesday, February 18, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very occasional hiccups with the app have made this just a hair under perfect. I would also like to be able to plug my subwoofer in with both channels, not just one cable. ..Would like an additional audio in, but i know the whole sonos premise is that we are doing it all wirelessly..... It was very easy to set up though. I was afraid of compressed audio from internet sources sounding crummy on the very nice speakers (I got ones that I liked better than the sonos speakers for my living room) that I got, but even things like soundcloud have sounded great. Overall, I love this product.

Great amp... the amp is hooked up to 4 Polk ceiling speakers and it sound terrific.

Pros: Able to separated the what is playing with the Sonos amp and my Sonos play 1.

Cons: The Sonos speaker family has to be close to an outlet for the power. Price isn't an issue because you get what you pay for (good quality).

Above expectations

Written By JasonV, Massachusetts on Thursday, December 25, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

For the price, you expect the system to work perfectly and that's just what it does. It's an elegantly engineered system. It sounds great, lets you get to all your music and then more, and is so wonderful to use. We bought our first piece a couple years ago and it quickly became the thing we turned on whether it was relaxing at home or dinner music or cooking music. It sounds great, looks great, and they keep improving the app. This is the Internet of Things they keep talking about. We add on to our every Christmas. This Christmas, we replaced an old receiver that drives speakers in the den and living room with the Amp. It was a simple connect and go setup. The system automatically integrated the new piece and in 2 minutes you were listening to music. No more connecting a phone or the ipod to the amp and then having to run back to it to adjust the volume or find a song.

Pros: Great sound, easy to use, endlessly expandable.

Cons: Expensive


Written By Ed, Illinois on Sunday, November 23, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Connect:AMP arrived, and set-up was simple!

The difference that Crutchfield made was that you took the time to explain things, draw a simple diagram and graphically what I couldn't understand from reading the Sonos information! Perhaps that was a "duh" moment - but it didn't matter - you took the time to listen, understand and respond.

Many thanks to my advisors!

Your service was top class, and much appreciated!

Thank you!

Pros: Your service made the difference!

Cons: No same day delivery - yet! (I have no "cons"! Thank you!)

Future of Music

Written By DrOcothorpe, Boston, MA on Sunday, November 16, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Here's what I did: I took all the music I had in my iTunes library, uploaded to Google Play Music for free, and then tell my phone to stream it right off of my Sonos. Or my phone into earbuds. Or from my desktop when I'm at work. No $8 or $10 per month, my music, where and whenever I want it. Most importantly, I don't need to leave my computer running with iTunes up or buy NAS storage.

How I ended up with a Sonos: we rearranged our living room and my old stereo amp didn't fit anymore. Began looking for something else to power my bookshelf speakers... tried a mini amp + apple TV + iTunes Match and the usability was clunky and unreliable. The deal-breaker was no volume control from the phone app. Switched to Google Play + Sonos and everything just worked. Others might compete on bulletpoint features, but I'm fairly convinced only Sonos has the entire experience down right. While there's room for some improvements on the app (which is why I've given 4/5 stars), but the core functionality is there, reliable, and pretty darn smooth.

What I use it for: streaming NPR and college radio, Pandora, and Google Play Music.

I plugged it right into my router, skipping the bridge. Audiophile reviews describe the amplifier as "transparent" with respect to the sound quality, and I guess I agree. I think I was getting a slightly nicer sound off my old stereo (a Yamaha), but not by enough to notice or really care about.

Pros: - Keep your speakers & get more sound than even the largest spearkful Sonos - Playing music really, really just works - Lots of music services to choose from - App should continue to improve - small footprint, looks presentable in living room

Cons: - App isn't perfect yet, though it's quite good (What I'd especially love is if I could have a bookmark for genres of Google Music in the Favorites section) - Weirdly, little white light is just eternally on, unless you tell it to turn it off. Why not show idle/sleep mode? - Doesn't work with iTunes Match or Airplay... BUT I wasn't thrilled with either of those services in the end, because I had to leave my computer on and the AppleTV was slow & unreliable for match. So you're not missing m

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This amp was just what I needed. I am using it to send music to ceiling speakers in a psychology office where we needed a little extra help to muffle conversations behind closed doors. The staff were exceptionally helpful and quickly understood my needs. The Sonos is just as easy as they said it would be to install and use, and the program download was quick and works well. We had access to more free stations than I expected which reduced my monthly costs. No regrets on this one, wish I ordered it sooner!

Pros: Attractive, compact, simple to use, works very well

Cons: Haven't found any, yet!

Cons: none


Written By Andy, Northern, AZ on Wednesday, August 27, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sonos connect amp exceeded my expectations. I enjoy quality sound, but don't consider myself a hard core audiophile. I have all my CDs on a synology NAS in FLAC format and had been looking for an easy way to access those files. I keep looking for a network DLNA compatible mini system, but could never find one that included all the online content I was looking for as well as NAS file access. The Connect amp does it. Only negative is that is doesn't come with a remote, but all the reviews on network access receiver with remotes always complain about how small the screens are and how difficult they are to view. I ended up getting an old model android 8" tablet to use as a dedicated around the house remote (Lenovo yoga 8 at a blue box store) and love it. It has 18 hour battery life so it will easily last a week between charging and really having the tablet as the remote lets you hide the sonos box where ever you like as long as it has enough cooling airflow. The newer app (Aug 2014) is great and easy to use / setup. I really like how it has a "cue" of music that you can add to... load up what you feel like listening to for while and then you don't have to do anything, but you can insert a song in that cue any time that you feel like something specific. Very happy with the purchase and I am not considering a connect for the main stereo system in the house.

Pros: sound quality easy of use app funciton

Cons: price

SONOS Easy! Connect:AMP Quality!

Written By Chad, Auburn, CA on Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I've been a audiophile for over 20 year and like quality equipment. I've had 2 Polk Audio Atrium 5 indoor/outdoor speakers for a couple of years now and finally decided too install them outside near the new deck. The speaker wires go into a closet on a shelf were a old stereo receiver used to be. I decided to make things easier assuming the SONOS Connect:AMP will help. After you plug the AMP into the wall outlet it was as easy as 1234. 1-Connect speaker wires. 2-connect internet to AMP. 3-Load smart phone with SONOS App. 4-Sync to amp. Now I can be outside on the deck or anywhere playing music from my smart phone. SONOS app has tons of music options including my playlist and my favorite, Pandora.

Pros: It's Small. Quality D Class Amplifier. Amazing Wireless control. EZ Install. Sounds Great. Has Sub out. Many music and talk radio choices.

Cons: Could use more power.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased the connect:amp so that I could run outdoor speakers through Sonos. Like other Sonos components, it is ridiculously easy to set up and works instantly. I personally wish that there was more power per channel and that you could run more than a single pair of speakers through the amp (and control each pair seperately). That being said, it is great overall.

Pros: Ease of setup and use Wireless control of speakers

Cons: Only 2 speaker outlets 50w per channel

I've now installed my 3rd Sonos Connect AMP to drive the speakers on my deck (in addition to the ones by the pool and our great room). Absolutely the easiest thing ever to install. Provides plenty of power to drive the speakers with outstanding sound quality. I only wish I didn't have thousands of dollars of audio equipment in my basement.

Cons: I honestly can't think of a con other than they could be priced a bit better. But still worth the money.

Yeah they are the only company I trust enough to make expensive audio purchases over the internet.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Lucy (Crutchfield pro) originally explained the SONOS system to me. I bought a bridge and this CONNECT:AMP to check it all out. My background was that I have lots of OLD, but great audio equipment (Macintosh, Thorens, Denon, Nakamichi, Sony, B&O, Cambridge audio, Marantz). And a medium sized collection of CDs, cassettes and vinyl.

The SONOS system is working great for me and I now have 5 CONNECT:AMPS, a PLAYBAR and just added a PLAY3 for ease of portability. In order to not need even more, I cheaped out and have several speaker AB switches installed so that I can double the number of locations served by each AMP. After all, we aren't ever listening in all the rooms. This allows us to select music room or home gym; guest room 1 or guest room 2; office or master bedroom; etc. I hope I don't end up ever needing to have music in more that 6 locations at once.

I have converted my ~1000 CDs to flac files on a wireless audio server. I am in the process of converting vinyl in the same way.

Even my wife, who likes Music and hates technology, can use the SONOS controlers. Quality is fantastic

Pros: Flawless sound (to my ear); Very high quality components; Easy to use. Unbelievable selection of online music libraries, and most are commercial free.

Cons: Addictive. You might as well plan on having it everywhere. Indoor living spaces, bedrooms, bathroom (I never expected that), and outdoors. Power is always on and these are warm/hot. Since they are in the basement or attic, I'd rather that they actually powered down somehow. No way to group on line music sources like I can with my audio file collection. For example, I'd like to sort them by GENRE rather than need to look at all my classical, rock, Christmas, etc, when all I want is to selec

I don't know how I survived without these. We have 8 pair of wired speakers and I plan to buy an amp for every pair!

Pros: Easy to install. Easier to configure.

Cons: Price. Need a single unit that can drive multiple speaker pairs.

The SONOS ConnectAMP is a straightforward way to connect your speakers, either existing or newly added to your receiver or the internet. I used this in conjunction with a SONOS Bridge connected to my router to stream online audio (Pandora or similar) into various areas of my home. The Crutchfield team was extremely helpful in the selection process and advice as to what I needed to make my existing system work. The sound quality is excellent, and with the SONOS software, very versatile.

Pros: Easy to set up and use, small footprint, good sound quality

Cons: Might be a little costly for some folks, but good value for money

Very satisfied!

This was my first Sonos purchase and I couldn't be happier. I decided to install ceiling speakers to conceal the speakers. When I received the Sonos amp, it took less than 5 minutes to have music playing through the speakers. Note that you can connect 4 speakers (2 speaker wires per channel).

Pros: Very easy setup. Has plenty of power for 4 speakers.

Cons: High cost, but to be expected for an awesome product.

Fantastic Product!

We moved into a home with full audio capabilities for each room; however, needed Sonos or similar device to use it. Fantastic product. Easy installation and love that we could take it with us to another home if we were to move. Crutchfield delivery was on-time and well-packaged. Couldn't ask for much more.

Pros: Easy install. Moveable.

Cons: Nothing

Unbelievably Cool!

I swapped a lot of equipment running my whole house system....wife found old system complicated... This is simple and sounds fantastic. I use existing in wall and in ceiling speakers as well as some bookshelves and floor standing speakers throughout the house whose wires all run to a central location where the old system was. Purchased 6 connect Amps for 6 zones, expensive but well worth it. Not sure anything beats the simplicity and great sound combo. Will continue to add more zones.

Pros: See review

Cons: None

Had an initial glitch importing my Itunes library. Turns out Mac OSX Leopard 10.5.8 and below have trouble sharing an Itunes library with the Sonos Connect Amp. A $20 upgrade to Snow Leopard was necessary. Both Sonos tech support reps. I dealt with were absolutely first-rate. Sonos Connect Amp is definitely a wife-approved-product. Very attractive and logical menus for iPod Touch, iPhone, and iPad.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I wanted a system that would stream pandora. Sonos system was the perfect solution. Started with a Play 5, was very impressed with the big sound from a small unit. Just added Connect Amp with free Polk Audio speakers. I'll upgrade those later. I am thrilled. Now I can take the Play 5 outside with Connect Amp inside. Awesome! Crutchfield gave outstanding customer service. Having music in the house is a whole new vibe again. I have missed it.

Pros: The simplicity and convenience. Excellent sound quality.

Cons: A little pricey, but well worth it.

Sonos Connect Amp

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I have been so happy that Brian turned me on to the Sonos system. I had a house pre-wired for speakers and the idea of adding zones, but had no idea how much more Sonos is. I purchased a Sonos connect amp to run the patio speakers and a Connect to run the source back thru my 5.1 speakers. Within a week, I added a Play 5 for the portable aspect. Spilt the tunes between rooms, group them together, and pick up any device to control. This is the greatest set up since sliced bread!!

Pros: Price it's awesome!! Functionality! Convenience! Choice!

Cons: Price is high, lets get a system discount going!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Sonos Connect AMP is a solid piece of gear and what if may lack in Audiophile performance is overcome by it's size and simplicity. Most will never be able to tell any music quality issues. I own several and have closeted all my old recievers and amplifiers. It is just too easy to use.

Pros: Ease of set up, ease of operation, auto on/off, size, power for most speakers, appearance

Cons: A bit pricey. You can buy better performing amps at a cost.
