I have many Sonos speakers, amps, etc… I may have a Sonos problem :)
One of my older systems is a Sonos:Connect that runs into a Sony consumer receiver which then powers 4 outdoor speakers (rated at 125W each). The problem I have with this system is that the receiver times out, which means that every time I want to turn on the outdoor speakers, I have to manually flip the receiver on. Boo!
I installed a couple extra outdoor zones, which are powered with the new Amps which have enough juice now to power my other outdoor speakers.
So, my options now seem to be replace my existing Connect/Receiver solution with 2 Sonos amps ($700 ea), which now have enough power per channel to run everything. Or, I find a receiver that doesn’t auto-turn off that is less than $1400 and keep the Connect. Of course, the other problem is that the Sonos amps are all back ordered until August, so… yeah…
Anyway, looking for receiver options, suggestions?
