Well, you've just described a Whole House Audio (WHA) system controller... Most of those come with amplifiers built in these days, but HTD.com does have one as a separate. The problem is going to be the remote control - you'll have to figure out a decent solution there for any of these systems, otherwise you're going to be back at the unit every time you want to use it - which will mean it won't get used nearly as often as it could...
But as you're going to get a Sonos Connect anyway, the best solution would be for you to (eventually) buy three more of those so you have one per zone. That would give you fully independent operation, 100% controlled from the Sonos mobile app. If you wanted some other source(s) besides the Sonos, each one has an analog input, too.
In the short term, buying one more Sonos Connect, and splitting the output of each to 2 zones each might be a reasonable solution...
