Recently jumped onto the Sonos bandwagon. Started with Beam for my TV/open Kitchen area. I have 2 pre-existing passive in-ceiling speakers (in that main room) that are run through an old amp in basement AV closet. I would like to connect and group the in-ceiling speakers with my beam (and planned Sub) for complete surround for TV and audio, basically in lieu of adding Ones to save on cost and overall decrease clutter.
Do I use the new sonos Amp? Connect? Will this work, will there be delay?

The new Sonos Amp can do this wirelessly, or wired, and the older Connect:Amp will just do it wired only ... I would personally suggest you go for the newer Amp, but either Amp will cost you more than buying two Play:1’s (which will work perfectly with the Beam). I don’t see too much advantage at adding Sonos Ones to a Beam Home Theatre setup at this moment in time, as their Alexa component and AirPlay capability are unavailable on those speakers when used as HT surrounds.
