Hi! I searched on the community but the answers are not very clear to me. So I've the following case; I already owned a Sonos Connect AMP but today I bought a new receiver - NAD T 758V3. In the attachment the backside of the NAD.

My question is: Is it possible to use the Connect AMP with the NAD? If yes which of the Sonos Connect AMP connections I need to use with the NAD?! 😃

It is possible if you can find the version of the ZP-100 Kumar is talking about, ebay has some, see the back photo.

You'd be far better served by a much newer Connect rather than buying an old Zone Player that may be reaching the end of life from many directions.

The Connect Amp does not have line level outputs or optical outputs, what you need to connect to your new amp. A plain Connect is what you need although other Sonos devices also offer a line-out option.

I use a couple antique ZP-80s, an older version of the Connect, to send my Sonos music to my home theater systems over the TOS optical link and it sounds excellent.

Re-purpose the Connect Amp for another room (ceiling speakers are great for this) or sell it to offset the cost of the Connect.
Thanks for you quick reply! This actually gets a bit confusing. I've found this topic: https://en.community.sonos.com/setting-up-sonos-228990/connect-amp-with-receiver-6793426, where @Kumar is saying it possible? Or am I wrong?
