I have looked around but can't seem to find a way to set up a Sonos 5.1 system (playbase, Bass, and two Play 1's) through my AV receiver. I see them up through a TV but not through a receiver. Is it possible to use Sonos speakers similar to the way you would use wired speakers? Be gentle and use simple terms...I am not a technical person. Thanks in advance.

Hi. No you cannot do this. The Sonos 5.1 system makes the AV receiver redundant, because Sonos speakers are powered speakers, which means the amplification is built in.
If you wanted to add Sonos music to an existing AV receiver + speakers setup you would just need a Sonos Connect.
