Equipment purchase help

Looking to extend music playback into my backyard just for a few hours at a time.  The seating area is approximately 50’ from the house, but the stereo playback equipment is on the opposite interior side.

I have an existing hardwired whole house system, so ideally I would be able to just grab a line level output from my preamp and add something like Sonos Connect with a battery powered speaker option out in the yard?  I’m guessing the stock broadcast distance is too much for Connect and I would also need the Boost?

If the component requirements get too crazy, I’ll just rent a trencher and run conduit out w/ 12ga wire and pick up another amp.

Have you perhaps considered the Sonos Move portable speaker, which can run on a WiFi signal/Hotspot or Bluetooth signal. If you can get a WiFi signal to the outside area you can stereo pair them and they sound great and will last a good eight hours or more on one charge.

Also when not in use outside they can make a great additional speaker for use indoors.

Actually, the Move sounds like the exact speaker(s).
