Sonos have unveiled their new Sonos Amp.

This new amplifier which can be used in either standalone or multi room setups with in-ceiling, architectural, outdoor, floorstanding or bookshelf speakers features a massive 125 watts per channel, more than double the 60w RMS per channel in the current Sonos Connect:amp (Previously known as the Sonos ZP120).

Most people will know Sonos for their line of Play speakers that are standalone speakers with an amplifier built-in, but many homeowners who are looking for a bigger, better sound will use the Sonos Amp in conjunction with built-in or stereo speakers such as bookshelf or floorstanders.

Previously they will have used the Sonos Connect:amp, which was originally the Sonos ZP120 and featured 120 watts (60w RMS per channel), before that there was the original Sonos amplifier - The ZP100 which featured 100 watts of power (50w RMS per channel) which was launched in 2005 before iPhones, iPads, Spotify and a slew of other technology that is now integrated into our lives.

The new amplifier from Sonos features a lot of new technologies and finishing touches such as;

  • HDMI ARC (Audio Return Channel)
  • Airplay 2
  • Mono Mode
  • Ethernet Only mode
  • Stackable
  • 1/2 Rack Mountsizing

We can't wait to see what it sounds like, 240w RMS is nothing to be scoffed at for home audio and we suspect teamed with a couple of pairs of 8" in-ceiling or outdoor speakers will be loud enough for any party, especially if paired with a subwoofer or the SONOS sub.
