I’m reading up on the Sonos Port and I have a couple of questions.

As I understand it the 12V Trigger just works as an on/off trigger for my amp.  Assuming my amp/receiver support 12V triggers it will bring it back on from a sleep/standby mode.  

But it won’t change inputs, right?

If that’s the case, is there any way to do this with a receiver?

 

Thanks in advance!

Pioneer and Onkyo both have a few receivers that are "certified" works with Sonos. My understanding is that these receivers will switch to the Sonos Connect (maybe Port too?) input.

 I was considering going this route but the number of negative reviews and problems put me off ( just my opinion)
