Ok so here goes... first off I love my Sonos system. My wife and I had this installed when we built our new home over 5 years ago. Basically the install is 4 Sonos Connect Amps paired with some in ceiling Tru Audio speakers. All Connect Amps were connected to the cable box via RCA,(Sound latency but we all know about this, not a deal breaker, I just muted the TV.) and a Sonos Connect hooked up to my Integra receiver in my home theater. Loved it!
Long story short, we cut the cable cord thanks to Direct TV Now, but since my Apple TV doesn't have RCA outs, no more audio for TV. Optical out is not an option since my Tvs are over fireplaces. Music over Sonos still works great wirelessly but really miss the TV experience. Ok enough backstory and onto my question...
Hypothetically if I were to purchase a Sonos One, since its on the same Sonos Network and its AirPlay 2 enabled, I could group my speakers, and change the audio out for my Apple TV to use Airplay 2 to the new Sonos One, I should be able to group and have this back again for $200.00? Is this crazy talk? I really don't want to replace all of the v1 Connect Amps for the new shiny, more expensive v2 Connect Amps.
Thanks in advance!

Yep, that's pretty much the way I thought you were setup. I still like my original idea if your goal is to keep using the Connect Amp for audio.View original
