I just invested in a Sonos Connect:Amp, which I'm successfully using with with a turntable I received as a Christmas gift. I love the setup. I happen to have two Audio Engine A5 powered speakers in the same room connected to my PC that I would love to integrate into a pretty extensive Sonos ecosystem spread across our home. Is there absolutely no way of connecting the two A5's without having to replace the Sonos Connect:Amp with something like a Sonos Connect (no amp)? Any other suggestions to preserve my current investment?

I don't imagine you'd want to butcher your A5s. (I certainly wouldn't take a knife to my A2s.) And separate level control of the A5s would be sacrificed if you were to be so rash.
Google "speaker to line level converter". You should be able to find something to piggy-back on your existing speaker connections. You'd preset the relative volume of the A5s via their own control. Thereafter they'd go up and down with your existing passives.
