Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to add my B&W A7 wireless speaker to my Sonos system. I currently have a pair of Play5's in my kitchen and have my media room Naim/Linn amps/speakers accessed through Connect. The A7 is located on my 2nd floor next to my computer, Airport Extreme and Sonos Boost. Would be great if I could leverage the Sonos controller to play music on the A7.

There appears to be an aux In on the back of the A7. You could run a cable from the audio out on the connect in to that aux in. Since it seems to be a headphone (3.5mm) jack, you'd have to get an RCA to 3.5mm cable, but that might do it for you.

There's no way to do it wirelessly, i.e. via wifi.
The expensive way would be via a Connect wired to the line in on the A7. Worth trying only if you have one lying around unused.
I assume you are using the Airplay capability of the unit to play music today.
