If that involves buying a standalone sonos speaker to get airplay2 going so be it. The setup is as follows--I recently added a sonos control on my home theater setup that goes into a whole home audio system(speakers in most rooms). I have homepods in 2 other rooms that don't have wired speakers. Up until now I have used airplay2 via an apple airport to get sound to the audio system and the home pods by selecting the speakers via the ios app(like within spotify or pandora). I would like to be able to send the sonos sound (from the sonos app) to not only my home speakers but also the homepods simultaneously. Is there a workaround to do this?
