Connections

The Connect:Amp has a single stereo RCA input which can be used to connect an external audio device, such as a turntable or an iPod dock.

For speaker connections, the Sonos includes solid, spring-loaded speaker jacks at the back for connecting banana plugs or bare wires -- though not spades.

Last in the list of connections is the subwoofer-out, which can be used to connect to a third-party subwoofer. Alternatively, you can opt to go with the wireless Sonos Sub instead.
