Question - moved into a new home with five existing speakers for basement living room. I have a roku, samsung TV and two new sonos AMP’s. Can I make this work or do I need a playbar or a home theater receiver to drive any of it? I don’t have a spot for a play bar as the built in speaker is directly above the wall mounted TV. Can I go optical out of the tv to HDMI to the sonos amp to make it work together. Just wanted some clarification before I need to start ripping things apart. Thanks!

You can use 4 out of the 5 speakers (not the center) to get 4.0 and a phantom center. One Amp for the front left/right speakers, connected to the TV by HDMI-ARC or this adapter for optical. The second Amp is for the rear surrounds. You can also add a Sonos Sub or a third party sub connected to the front Amp’s subwoofer output.
