Connect- Line-Out Level Pass-Through


Is there a list of amps/receivers that support this feature?

It would be any receiver that has a tape input or similar on it. Pretty much anything except a phono input, which is not line-level.
It states that the Connect will send volume commands to the AVR. How does the Connect know what the volume commands of the AVR are?
I think you're misinterpreting that. What it is saying is that if you set the line-out to "pass-through", rather than "line-level", you'll be able to control the volume of the sound using the app, which will change what is being fed to your amp. It's not actually adjusting the volume of your amp, just the data being fed to it.

I appreciate your responses.. However, this is a new feature added to the Sonos API as of 10/18.

It states that "Connect will stay at a fixed volume and send volume commands to your amplifier".
If I wanted to limit what Connect feeds to my amp, I would have have selected Variable Line Level, not Pass-Through.

The question is, which amp manufacturers support this new feature?

I don't see anything in the FAQ on this at all. Maybe go digging in the "works with Sonos" stuff?
Yea, that's what I'm guessing this is. A "Works with Sonos" feature. So the OP would need to look at the specs for his particular receiver, and see if it is marketed as a "Works with Sonos" device. I'm not aware of very many of those.

Here's a good place to at least start:

Pioneer

Not sure on the Sony thing.

Since Sony getting on board with the Works with Sonos program would be a fairly big deal, I would expect to see an official announcement like we saw with Onkyo.
