Sonos Amp review: Convenient whole-home streaming audio for the BYO speakers crowd
 Throughout my testing, though, one thing kept occurring to me -- this is a very dynamic amplifier -- and thoroughly trounced the Onkyo in this regard. While the Onkyo tended to round off dynamic peaks making them a bit "friendlier," the Sonos was able to give the music a hip and shoulder when it demanded it.

Sonos Amp Review
The best thing about the Amp is how it bridges Sonos setups and non-Sonos gear. Technically, you don’t need a single Sonos speaker to use the Amp and gain access to the Sonos app and its excellent streaming abilities and controls. You can use the speaker connections for passive bookshelf speakers that meet the power rating requirements, and connect the output of a stereo receiver or component to the RCA inputs, as well as the TV ARC connection to the HDMI port

Sonos reminds us that it can do almost anything
And now there’s the new Amp, which is designed to fill in virtually every other gap with the full set of Sonos’ capabilities, whether that’s running a set of hidden speakers in the ceiling, making your vintage speakers connect to a modern music platform, or just making your TV play nice with your audio setup in the living room.

All Sonos products come with one-year manufacturer’s warranty. Our Take.

It would be perfect if it powered 2 sets of speakers
Sonos is the first name in wireless music in the home. The new Sonos Amp would be a perfect device- if it only had outputs for 2 sets of speakers instead of one. As a standalone device that powers a single pair of speakers, it just misses the mark.

Sonos Amp Streaming Amplifier Review
The result is a class-D amp that Sonos says outputs 2 x 125 watts at 8 ohms and can also easily handle 4 ohm loads and even (dynamically) 2 ohms.

After hours on phone with sonos, item being returned.
New item may have issues. IR port on the amp didn't work. Remote control had to be less than one foot to respond. Sonos is replacing the unit but still have the issue of shipping it back and waiting for replacement. Replacement amp received and works well. I think they missed the mark with this new ...
