I have surround sound for my tv so a Sonos sound bar, sub and a pair of Sonos ones, a play 5 and a one in the kitchen but I’m building an extension and want to fit a pair of ceiling speakers for the TV, I don’t want to use it with anything else other than Sonos equipment, so do I need an amp?

No, you don’t need an Amp for your existing setup. Only if you want to add ceiling speakers to your Sonos ecosystem.

Yes, you would need to power the ceiling speakers with a Sonos Amp. The Amp would then connect wirelessly to your Sonos sound bar.

FYI, for a home theater setup with a Sonos sound bar, you can only use a pair of ceiling speakers as rear surround speakers, and they would replace any current speakers you have connected as surrounds.
