On a side note, would also be interested in the ability to connect with other current Bluetooth/WIFI portable speakers. Say allow the SONOS system to connect to the UE Megaboom speakers (which also now come with Alexa in which you could potentially use also to control your sonos system). Or SONOS to make a portable option. Just food for thought.
How do you expect the speakers to function? Because unless you use battery operated devices you're not going to make it work. Even passive speakers are going to need a wire pulled to them. And if you're pulling a speaker wire then a Connect Amp is the solution.
Otherwise if you want the convenience of Sonos' app or remotes then use the line-out from an Amp to drive a bluetooth dongle. Then pair portable bluetooth speakers to that and put them where desired. I've even used an Amazon Tap that way (mostly for movie playback since it has it's own music features, but it'd work just the same with a line-out from a Sonos)
Agree, this is my exact set-up. It gets hot outside here, so I wouldn't want to put an amp out there. I've always used Connects to drive outdoor speakers.
