I would like to integrate Sonos into my whole house audio system. What I have now is an old (and failing) Pioneer stereo receiver with a 4 zone speaker selector connected to “Speaker A” outputs. Zones 1-3 go to built-in speakers in the walls, zone 4 goes outside to a pair of outdoor speakers.
What I’d like to do is replace the old receiver with a new amp, and still use a speaker selector, wired to the speakers as they are now. The amp source would be a Sonos Connect accessing my network. What I want to accomplish is to access Pandora, Spotify, Internet Radio, and the music files on my PC, and do so remotely from an iPhone or the PC. I understand I will be limited to a single source at a time for all zones, and will have to manually select zones with the speaker selector. But I do want to be able to select from iTunes or Pandora, etc. and be able to control on/off/volume from an iPhone & PC.
My first question is will this work?
