I am so disappointed that Sonos has yet to create an Amp that has a real center channel. When they came out with the new AMP a few months ago, I was sure that they would get it right. But instead they gave us the "phantom" center channel which is still not the real deal.
I have very expensive speakers that match the design of my house and I don't want to part with them. This includes a center channel speaker. They are running thru a Denon AVR and a Sonos Connect.
I would much rather use just the Sonos ecosystem as it is a much better system and easier to use. Denon has gone way downhill on quality over the years, they are slow and a headache compared to Sonos.
But I cannot find any way or any hack to get the center channel so that I can set up a true 5.1 system for use with my TV.
Has anyone figured out any hack for this?
The best I could think of would be to get a dolby 5.1 decoder for $20 on eBay and then use 3 Connect:Amps with it.
One for L/R, one for RL/RR and the other one for Center using just one of its channels.
However I am sure that there will be a syncing issue between them all since sonos would not recognize that setup and it would treat them as different zones playing different content.
Common Sonos, I have seen tons of people ask about this online.
