Sonos Port Explained: Do You Need It?
Now you'll need to weigh up the pros and cons of replacing your amplifier, because if you have a particularly powerful one, one that outputs more than 125 watts at the amp outputs, then you might just want to use the sonos port. But if you're looking for a new amp or are in the market for a completely new amp and speaker combo, then the sonos amp is a good option to consider.

Its a good little speaker but I wouldn't describe it as "Great'. For its size, its delivers good 360 sound.
Make almost anything work with Sonos, but it’ll cost you
It also seems clear that Sonos knows that the professional AV integrators who are most likely to buy the Port will simply pass the cost along to their clients, who are already spending thousands on custom solutions. And really, that all seems fine — go ahead and soak the people who can afford completely custom, professionally installed home audio systems.

Sonos Port Review
The $449 price may be steep, but it's worth it especially for audiophiles with high-quality, non-Sonos gear. Simple but pricey, the Sonos Port provides an easy two-way extension of your Sonos network, allowing for integration of non-Sonos stereo gear.

NAD vs Yamaha Amp with Paradigm Speakers
If you want an upgrade, the best move you can make here is to get rid of the Sonos Port. Sonos’s current generation of gear resamples all audio and performs black box-style DSP adjustments that are tricky if not impossible to disable. I believe some have figured out that if you set the Port to fixed-volume output mode and use the digital outputs only, that seems to disable the adjustments… but the audio is still forcibly resampled even in that configuration. I’d recommend selling it and getting a Bluesound Node.

The simplicity is great, I tend to like to tinker with settings and levels a lot and the Sonos setup would stop me from doing that but I lose out on multi channel PCM from gaming and formats like DD+ and Atmos. Basically I'm at a point where I just leave my setup as is and maybe find a Sonos Port to connect to my AVR or pick up another AMP to power my current surrounds and go all Sonos but miss out on my center channel and things like DD+, Atmos and such.
