Will you be able to work with Amazon that will allow output from Echo Dots to SONOS speakers directly.
I currently have 2 dots, one is connected to the Lounge Play:5 via Aux, and one in the bedroom but I only have Play:1s there, but as you know it they don't have Aux inputs but it would be useful if the audio output could be configured to temporarily use DNLA to output Alexa requests.

Currently, we do not have any news to report regarding Alexa working directly to Sonos without the use of an Aux cable. However, I'll be sure to forward this to the team. Thanks for the great suggestion.

I have a question about the Player/Echo Dot pair.
Currently I am using my Play5 as my center channel for my TV, using a DAC (digital audio from TV to DAC, AUX cord from DAC to Play5). I know the Dot can hardwire to the Play5 with an AUX cord. Can I use a simple splitter at the Play5 and have both connected?
Second this suggestion. I would like to send all Echo Dot audio to Sonos. Or at least stop Alexa from ever playing music on the Dot if Sonos is online.
