ive started to build out a multiroom audio system using sonos.
Id like to extend the system to a bathroom, im in the UK so powering a play 1 from the bathroom itself isnt possible and for various reasons running passive speakers from a connect amp isnt possible either.
ive decided to explore using a sonos connect and external amp and bluetooth transmitter to shift the audio to bluetooth speakers in the bathroom and then use a zwave power plug and accompanying battery powered switch to toggle the amp on or off.
sonos connect -> external powered amp(can be powered. off by zwave switch) -> bluetooth transmitter
the reason for putting the amp between the connect and the bluetooth trasnmitter is so i can shut off the output to the speakers without havimg to deal with the bluetooth re-pairing when its switched back on, the transmitter would be always paired to the speakers and would remain on all the time.
Does anyone forsee any issues with this setup?
id also use same connect and a second mini amp and run some passive speakers i(again to be powered on/off through zwave mains plug) to effectively create two virtual zones … at least the expense of the connect is powering two rooms that way…the bedroom where the connect will be located and the bathroom bluetooth speakers
