I have a connect AND a connect amp and yes, I connected a standard speaker to the amp and it worked fine.
the wireless speakers I have are Sound Appeal outdoor speakers
Miccus RTX is a wireless TX/RX that can be used (I assume) to transmit a wireless signal to wireless speakers OR receive a signal and be used as a distance booster for longer range
the taotronics is also a TX/RX that can be used (also assumed) to receive the signal from the Miccus and then power the wireless speakers
I hooked the miccus from line out on both the connect and amp (separately, in an effort to troubleshoot), set to TX mode, paired it to the taotronics, and tried to pair it to the speakers... no joy
i also tried hooking the taotronics to the line out and reversing the set up (TX from taotronics to RX on the miccus)...
the goal is have the Sonos inside, and have a pair of WIRELESS speakers out back on my deck, and out front on my porch...
the speakers pair with my phone and will stream from music there but that is not how I want it to work
