Hi guys, are you able to add the Sonos Arc and Sub Gen 3 speakers to an AV Receiver?

I have an Onkyo TX-NR626 which seems to have a lot of functions. 

I am not looking to simply use the Sonos app via the amp, my objective is to use the Sonos Arc Soundbar as centre speaker and the Sub Gen 3 as a Subwoofer as surround speakers with the AV Onkyo amp instead of buying traditional Speakers.

Thanks,

Kens.

Couple of issues with this idea.

First, the Arc can’t be set up as a center speaker, it always plays right, center, and left signals. 

Second, it’s unlikely that your receiver creates an ARC signal, which is what the Sonos uses to create sound. The Amp may pass through ARC, I’ve not looked it up, but it’s very unlikely to create ARC.  

At the end of the day, the Sonos Arc is designed to replace the Onkyo for TV playback, not be a supplement to it.
