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.
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?

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.
