Now just called Sonos Amp, the new version will be available globally in February 2019 and in the US from December. It will support Apple AirPlay 2 as well as feature an HDMI input to drive TV audio too.
It has been redesigned to fit into standard A/V racks used by home cinema and audio specialist installers and can power up to four speakers with 125 watts per channel.
