Sonos has unveiled its first outdoor speakers, as part of its new Sonos Architectural by Sonance lineup, which includes in-wall and in-ceiling speakers.

But before you get too excited, these aren’t a totally wireless range of connected speakers. In fact, the Sonos Architectural by Sonance lineup (yep, gonna keep using the full name), are good old wired speakers, which will need to be hooked up to the Sonos Amp to work. That's the $599 device that bridges the connected world of Sonos – from streaming toAirPlay 2 – to good old fashioned stereos.

And that means that embracing this new range of architectural Sonos isn’t cheap. On top of the Sonos Amp, the Sonance line up consists of the Sonos In-Wall ($799), the Sonos In-Ceiling ($599) and the Sonos Outdoor ($799).

But that doesn’t mean that the Sonos/Sonance speakers are completely dumb. Sonos Amp will auto-recognise and connect to the Sonance wall speakers and you’ll be able to tune them via TruePlay.

The Sonos In-Wall and In-Ceiling speakers are available for pre-order now on sonos.com, and will be available on 26 February. The Outdoor will follow in April.
