For the same price my question is I would prefer to get the bigger Sonance 86 but how does this work with the new Sonos amp. What advantage would it be to get the adapted Sonos/Sonance?

So basically, the outdoor are tuned to sound like the other Sonos speakers. It also looks like Sonos has slightly more power that the 86. Sonos doesn't show those specs, but you can compare from crutchfield.
With the Sonos speakers you can also use 3 pairs of speakers without needing an external speaker switch for impedance matching.
Personally, I am more than happy with speakers in $300 pair range, but I've never heard either of the above to tell the difference.
