We just built a home and have three areas of existing speakers in the ceiling. Two speakers in the dining room, two in the kitchen and two outside on the deck. They are all wired to one location in our pantry. There will not be a tv or anything in there. What can I get to hook up to them so I can play music? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you!

Hey Vperelli,

Your best option here would be to introduce a CONNECT:AMP per zone. http://www.sonos.com/en-gb/shop/connectamp.html. This would allow the zones to be controlled independently from each other.

A single CONNECT:AMP will power up to 4 ceiling speakers, so could also be used across two zones. The decision will come down to whether you would like to control the zones independently or as one.

I've included this FAQ on 'Connecting speakers to a CONNECT:AMP' which details the ohms and gauge specifications required - https://sonos.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/269/kw/connect:amp
