Can't be done easily. There's no simple way to separate out the signals properly to support such a set up. You might potentially use an A/V receiver to drive multiple Connects, but it would be complex, and much more easily and cheaply done by getting a Soundbar.

Pretty impossible. We are holding out hope that the next home theater device is something like a SuperConnect - input digital audio into it and it can pass it to multiple speakers. Still a pipe dream.

PLAY:1 lacks a multi-channel decoder.
