Hi, I have Denon AVR-X4100W - and would like to use my existing Sonos Connect:Amp and play:1's for surround sound. I have read conflicting takes. Is it possible to use the Connect or the Connect:amp as Surround sound without the Playbar? Thank You!

Sorry no it isn't. Absolutely not. Where did you get the conflicting views?

It's not possible to use the Connect for surround sound even with the Playbar.
I saw articles with people using digital surround decoder's - it sounds like there was some success but there was a noticeable lag so I won't bother trying. Thanks for your reply.
Yes, the lag is why it will not work. Plus, many receivers have no analog outs.
