I have a traditional yamaha receiver and 2 beautiful polk floor speakers. I would like to add surround sound to my setup and have the rear speakers fill the living room with audio when listening to music. I love my floor speakers, but i would like more.
What should I buy? Connect with 2 play 1s or 3s? Is the playbar overkill for a center channel for surround sound?

It's unclear what you want as an end result. A Connect would provide the Sonos ecosphere to your current Yamaha receiver and Polk floor speakers, assuming you're just after music.
Nov 24, I've hooked it up to the Tape audio in on the receiver, tuned the receiver to Tape, again nothing happens. As best I can tell, the Connect was successfully hooked up through the Sonos app at the beginning of this process which, I assume, means Connect and Play 1 speakers will work together once I get receiver hooked up appropriately. Help.
If you're looking to get a home theater experience based on your center channel for surround soun it gets a little more complex, I think. If you post a little more information about what your end goal is, there are a lot of folks who peruse these boards on a regular basis who can help.
Thanks for the information Airgetlam. There are a bunch of things that need to be addressed here Is it a 2-channel stereo receiver?

Jul 17, Third, if you're willing to keep your receiver, you can bring that entire setup into a Sonos system using the Sonos Connect, it can pass input to your receiver and, depending on your receiver, take output and pass it on to other Sonos speakers in your speakers. I'd recommend the 3rd, but not really sure what your ultimate goal is.
The answer here will help determine if that receiver supports surround sound. Keep in mind that surround sound is not just a matter of putting speakers behind you. It is a stand-alone unit that provides center, left, and right audio all by itself. Yes it supports surround sound. A wired center channel is much less expensing than the Sonos playbar.
Sonos Amp. Quick look at an install we performed with ceiling speaker retrofit pictures.
I am wondering if the play 1s are sufficient for the rear channels for surround sound or if I should purchase play 3s. Despite your response to jdag 's item 3 I'm concerned that the message hasn't got through. To add wireless surround speakers to your Yamaha receiver you need to look for traditional wireless speakers, not network streaming players such as Sonos.
Can i hook up sonos to my receiver
I think you are misunderstanding. They can only be used as surrounds with a Playbar, which doesn't need a receiver, and is only compatible with the very few that have an optical output. PS - What ratty said.

The Connect unit has analog RCA and digital coaxial and optical outputs on it. Yes, you are correct.
Contact Sonos if it is a recent purchase and work on getting it exchanged, I have a couple last generation Connects, ZonePlayers and they work wonderfully with external amplifiers and speakers. View real-time service status. Powered by inSided. Sign up Already have an account?

Apr 12, 2) A Sonos Connect can be plugged into a receiver (either stereo or AV) and allow for the Sonos experience through your existing Polk towers. 3) You cannot just add Sonos Play speakers to your receiver. 4) The Playbar cannot be used a center channel speaker. It is a stand-alone unit that provides center, left, and right audio all by itself. Jan 15, Can i add my home theater speakers attached to my Denon XH av receiver to my sonos network, there is a spare digital audio socket (says CD) on receiver, if i connect to this will i be able to control streaming from my sonos app to speakers connected to AV receiver? Dec 28, I think this is my answer: The Connect:AMP is designed to be connected directly to speakers, as it has a built-in amplifier. It is not designed to be connected to a receiver/amplifier. If you want to connect a Sonos unit to your own receiver/amplifier, you would want to get a Sonos Connect (not Connect:AMP).
