Playbar wirth CONNECT as 5.1 rear


Hello,
Thinking of purchasing a Playbar. I note that the rear 5.1 speakers can be configured with a Play 1,3,5 and CONNECT:AMP but how about using a CONNECT + separate amp to do this. Is it possible ?

No. That is NOT correct.

A Playbar may have Play 1, Play 3 or Play 5 (Gen 2) as surrounds (NO need for a Connect:Amp)

You may use a Connect:Amp + 3rd party speakers.

See here:-

The first link at the bottom describes how to setup Connect:Amp with surrounds and 3rd party speakers
Thanks Stuart. I saw the article, which says you can use a 'CONNECT AMP'. My question is can I use just 'CONNECT' (the Sonos device without the amp built in).

No

The reason being is that the Amp will likely be doing processing that delays the audio signal and that would make the audio signal out of sync
