Connecting Amp to Beam and Surrounds

Dear all,

I have an implemented sound environment containing Beam (connected to TV), Sub and several Ones. Everything worked just perfect until I decided to connect my vinyl player to my sound equipment. 
I purchased Amp specifically for that purpose expecting that it would be able to take vinyl as input and stream it to existing equipment as output. However, it was not possible to add Amp to existing sound group during the setup, so it was only possible s to set it up as separate equipment group with separate output speakers. 
Is it possible to implement scenario I described above? If yes, what should be done to implement it?

Hi @Sergey Z.

Welcome to the Sonos community and thanks for reaching out to us. I understand that you wanted to integrate your turntable into your Sonos Ecosystem. let me help you out.

Currently, Sonos Supports up to 5.1 surround sound set up which in your situation the Sonos Beam, Sub, and 2 Ones as surrounds. There is no feature on the Sonos App that would allow you to add additional speakers on top of the maximum supported setup. The situation you have described above is the only way you would be able to have the turntable audio to come out of your Sonos home theater speaker. Add the Sonos Amp as a new product (new room) and use the group and ungroup feature on the Sonos App to group your Sonos Amp to the Beam.

Please let me know if you still have any questions or concerns. We are always here to help.
