Connectivity is also fully refreshed. The Sonos Amp supports Apple AirPlay 2 to send sound from your iPhone or iPad to any connected speaker, plus you’ll be able to use Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal – Sonos’ ecosystem now supports over 100 streaming services.
The Sonos Amp even has love for your TV. It features the same HDMI ARC module used on the Sonos Beam. The idea is that you can use the Sonos ecosystem to drive your movie sound, and maybe even pair a couple of Sonos One units as surround speakers. Or you can set up a Sonos Beam at the front of the room, and use the Sonos Amp to drive your own in-wall loudspeakers at the back.
A set of RCA analogue inputs is ideal for adding your old turntable to the mix. There’s also a subwoofer output, and you’re able to manually adjust the crossover frequency to determine how much bass is sent to the sub.
