Product Question

Hello,

 

I am looking to buy my husband a system for Christmas but need some help picking out the pieces needed.

 

We currently have two mounted outdoor speakers and a sound bar by two different brands and I want to replace them with a sonos system. I want the speakers and sound bar to be able to connect to one another and play the same tunes.

 

I was planning on ordering the outdoor speaker pair and the multi room entertainment set with Arc and Move. Will all that work together as I expect? Is there anything else I need? Or is there a better product for my needs?

 

thanks!

A Sonos Amp will work with your existing outdoor speakers, noneed to replace them.  Either a Sonos Arc or Beam would be the soundbar to get.  The soundbar and Amp could be grouped together to play the same music,

The outdoor speaker pair will need something do drive them. Within the Sonos universe this means an Amp.
