Is it possible to use any combination of Sonos products to drive passive hard-wired stereo ceiling speaker pairs in 5 separate rooms around the house and configure each room as its own zone? All speaker cables come back to one 19" rack-mount cabinet in the garage right next to the router where I already have a single Connect:Amp wired up to the kitchen ceiling speakers.
I was using a Nuvo 3-zone streaming amp but its PSU just failed and it wasn't that good anyway.
Would I use multiple Connect:Amps (expensive) or is there a better solution?
Thank you for your help.

As per above reply, if you want separate music in each room then you need a separate Sonos Amp or Sonos Connect:amp for each room. Which as you say, will be very pricey. Again, as @melvimbe says, if you don't mind some rooms having the same output playing then get a speaker switch (e.g. https://www.amazon.com/Speaker-Selector-Individual-AVX-Audio/dp/B008X6VZQQ) and then you can control volume in each room (though as in "setting up" control for the speaker / room configuration - you wouldn't want to use it for turning the volume up and down depending on what song was playing). I use one of these in a series of open plan rooms where there are different speakers in different parts of the room (e.g. bookshelf speakers in a "library" bit, ceiling speakers in the kitchen) which allows me to control how loud the speaker sets are, but I wouldn't ever want different songs playing in different bits of the room so don't want to have separate amps powering the speakers.
