I am actually building my new house, and planning its sound system.
I plan to use an Amp linked to the TV as input, and obviously some speakers. I already own a NAS (Synology 216 Play) which stores my movies and music.
As I understand, I might be able to use the Amp as output for my music library inside the NAS, using the S2 app?
But here is another question that I cannot answer for now : my family has gifted us an Amazon Echo (we do not have it yet thanks to the lockdown), can I use it with the Sonos S2 app? It seems that the Amazon Alexa app cannot use the NAS as a library (not directly), and as I plan to pilot everything with the S2 app, it would be nice to keep this Echo speaker.
thanks a lot for your tips!

No, the S2 App is a remote and will only output/control audio to Sonos devices, but if your NAS supports a upnp Media server, or you have such a server on your home network then use that instead…
See this link:
And some NAS boxes have Alexa skills that might allow playback of some music audio libraries to an echo device. See this example with a synology NAS box
There’s usually a workaround out there for these things.
