The SONOS Amp is the latest dedicated amplifier from SONOS, anåd improves greatly on the model of the outgoing Connect:Amp, which had become our best-selling amplifier of all time through its clever design, ease of set-up and use, and continuous improvements to its performance and flexibility via free updates from SONOS. You can now enjoy high-fidelity performance with an uprated 125 Watts per channel, plenty to power almost any speakers whether they are bookshelf, floor-standing, in-ceiling or in-wall designs.
All New Inputs
As well as analogue audio inputs for your turntable, CD player or computer it now features an HDMI connection with ARC (Audio Return Channel) to allow connection of your smart TV, and devices with an optical output can be connected via an optical to HDMI convertor. Your TV audio can be enjoyed in either stereo or surround sound.
Audio streaming is as usual very well supported, the Amp allows you to stream using either the SONOS app, Apple AirPlay 2, or via many popular streaming Apps such as Spotify. Music stored on local devices or networks can also be played across the whole SONOS network.
Another new feature is the introduction of a ‘dual mono’ setting. This allows both left and right audio to be sent to an otherwise mono speaker, thus giving the possibility of hearing balanced sound across large areas.
A thoughtful arrangement of connections at the back of Amp allows for a straightforward setup, and the threaded speaker connections for left and right channels are a standard diameter so you can remove these and use 4mm ‘banana’ speaker plugs.
Bespoke SONOS accessory manufacturer Flexson has also designed some dedicated brackets for the Amp, allowing wall mounting of one or four Amps, as well as a dock that accommodates four Amps vertically.
In summary then, the new SONOS Amp has a higher power output and better physical connectivity, as well as Apple Airplay 2 compatibility. TruePlay tuning can now be used, and three pairs of compatible speakers can now be connected. The dual mono setting allows for even greater flexibility across multiple rooms or larger areas.
