If you want to be able to send airplay2 directly to connect and not play to something like a Play:5 gen 2 first then group. Then yes you would need a new connect (which at this point does not exist). So I would assume we may see refreshes next year on the older lineup.

Pure speculation here as airplay2 support we don’t have real details on yet.
So you're suggesting they will likely need to release a newer version of the connect?

I believe you are going to need newer units then that to initiate airplay2. However when a newer unit that accepts airplay2 is playing you should be able to group non-airplay2 older units to that device. I would expect the connect amp will only be able to group and playairplay2 initiates by another Sonos speaker that is newer
