Connect existing built in speakers with Sonos

Hi there,
We just bought a house that has speakers installed in the ceiling. There are 2 speakers in the living room, 2 speakers on the front deck, two in the master bedroom, and 2 in the home office. It was all connected on the Nuvo system with controls built into the wall in every room. Unfortunately there's no amp or receiver (not sure, I'm not big into audio). We want to be able to control the speakers through our phone rather than relying on panels in the wall. We own two Play1 that are just plugged into the walls in a couple places.

What's the best way to link those speakers to Sonos? Or do I just abandon the approach and grab some more Play1s and scatter them throughout the house. Also...is the sound bar worth purchasing for the television?

Thank you
matt

Two ways.

Purchase a Connect:Amp (or it's replacement, the Sonos Amp, coming soon) for each individual zone. Each Amp product can power up to 2 pairs of 8 Ohm speakers.

Or purchase a 3rd party multi-channel amp, and use a Sonos Connect to feed the amp for each individual zone needed.
