Correct. But as many of those rooms are all open to each other, buying separate Sonos units for them seems like overkill - since you'll never have them playing different sources.
The other thing I am entertaining is hooking the Sonos Amp into a DLA 4 room selector and just running the Sonos in the DR, Kitchen and Master suite. IS this doable?
Yes, that's more like it. There's probably enough power in the Connect:Amp, or you could use a larger external amp. I'd probably start with the Connect:Amp, and add more power later if needed (probably not).
Oh yea, the wife would like to hear the TV in the kitchen. Can I split the speaker wires to the switch and jump off the L & R?
Take the zone2 output from the Denon and run it to the line in of the Sonos Connect:Amp. Then you can select any source connected to the Denon. Or just run an analog audio line from the set-top box (assuming you have one), so that TV audio is always available. I'm guessing that would be the more usable solution.
