Sonos Bundle 250

 

Sonos released an app last year turning iPhones and iPod touches into very capable remote controls for the company's excellent wireless home audio system. It was, therefore, only a matter of time before Sonos issued an update to the standard remote...

Seamless integration of personal music libraries and Web music services. High-quality wireless audio streaming. Touch-screen remote is well-designed, fast, and intuitive

No video or photo support. Very expensive for a product that doesn't include speakers

While it's not a toy for those with tight budgets, the well-executed but pricey Sonos Bundle 250 is worth every penny. It's the most seamless way to get your music into every room of the house.

Sonos Bundle 250 with Sonos Controller CR200 review

 

We make no qualms about Sonos here at Pocket-lint. We think it's an excellent system that allows you to listen to your music from a single source in multiple locations around the house. It's expensive, yes, but then the experience is such a nice one...

Incredibly simple to use, incredibly simple to set-up, you can't ask for much more from a dedicated controller

The system is expensive for what it does, you could get away using an iPod or iPhone instead

There are probably reasons we could recommend getting this, we just can't think of any right now

Sonos BU250 Wireless Digital Music System

 

The best multi-room digital music system just got better - much better!

The Sonos BU250 bundle may be £100 more than last year's BU150, but it's worth it. The new controller is an absolute gem, and shows that Sonos has taken its time to produce something special rather than jumping on the touch-screen bandwagon too early....

The venerable Sonos has had a few hardware tweaks – including a stonking new controller. Time to bin that iPod Touch?

The best wireless music system in the business just got even better

An excellent touchscreen remote and equally usable iPhone remote app breathe new life into Sonos' excellent multi-room digital-audio system.

Two-room, wireless digital audio system ; Expandable to as many as 32 rooms ; Wireless touchscreen remote ; iPhone or iPod Touch control via free app ; Easy set-up and installation for most home networks ; Streams the same or different music to each...

Needs hard-wired connection to base station or wireless bridge accessory ; Podcast access could be more streamlined ; Competing Logitech products offer more music options for less money ; Touchscreen remote does little more than iPhone remote app

Yes, AU$1799 is not cheap, and we have a handful of remaining quibbles (one wired connection needed, no black-finish option and less-than-optimal podcast support). But considering it's a two-room audio system that's been updated with an impressive...

Sonos' Bundle 250 is a remarkable network audio player, too bad about the price

 

A gorgeous new controller makes this the best Sonos system ever – just take note of that high price.

Sonos BU250 wireless audio system

 

The multi-room system gets a new iPhone-style touch-screen controller

(Fairly) easy set-up, very easy to use, versatile, expandable, good sound quality

Occasional signal dropouts, no controller app for non-Apple devices

There's also the ?79 BR100 ZoneBridge, available separately, which has no audio outputs at all but simply acts as a connection between ZonePlayers to extend the range, or as the first point of contact with your computer or wireless router

"Simply awesome system"

 

My experience with the Sonos bundle has been very good. The set-up was straightforward and didn't take much time. I have this connected to speakers in my kitchen, a Zone Player S5 in the bedroom, and patio speakers. I typically stream music from...

Final Thoughts

Easy setup * Surprisingly good sound quality * Loads, loads, and more loads of music services available * Free Sonos Controller iPhone/iPod touch app is the cat's pajamas with bees' knees printed on them

The S5 isn't quite as "all-in-one" as its name implies, since the proprietary network makes two ZonePlayers or a ZoneBridge necessary for wireless access, adding to the cost * While setup is easy, if you run into any snags they're hard to fix *...

Best there is. You pay for it, but the way it works makes it worth every dollar. Brilliant interface, sound quality, features.

Product Specifications

The Sonos Bundle 250 gives you everything you need to wirelessly play music in two rooms of your house. And with SonosNet's superior wireless range, no room is out of reach. Just connect the ZonePlayer 90 (ZP90) to your home theater or stereo and place the ZonePlayer 120 (ZP120) with built-in amplifier in any room where you want music. Connect one ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge (sold separately) to your network and all the rest work wirelessly. For the ultimate in convenience, choose the Sonos Bundle 250 with Loudspeakers and you'll also have a pair of powerful bookshelf speakers to attach to your ZP120. To start playing music, just grab the full-color wireless Controller and simply pick a room, pick a song and touch play. With the Controller in hand you'll have instant access to your entire music library, plus thousands of Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services to play all over the house. When you want to play more music in more rooms, just add ZonePlayers and Controllers to your heart's content. The Sonos ZonePlayer 120 is amplified, wireless, compact, and convenient. With its state-of-the-art digital amplifier, the ZP120 works anywhere you've ever dreamed of having music - the bedroom, the bathroom or even the backyard. All you have to do is plug it in, connect your choice of speakers and you've got a room filled with music. And with the ZP120's superior wireless range, music lovers really can play all the music they love, all over the house. The design of the ZP120 is both compact and cool so you can feel free to hide it away or leave it out for all to see. The Sonos ZonePlayer 90 lets you play all the music you want, all over your house, on all the audio equipment you already own - your home theater receiver, stereo system, powered speakers, and more. Just connect the ZP90 to any amplified audio device in any room and it's instantly part of the wireless Sonos system. The ZP90's digital and analog outputs deliver superior sound to every room. And with the ZP90's superior wireless range, no room is out of reach. The ZP90 is super small, so it will fit just about anywhere. The Sonos Controller gives you instant, wireless access to all your music and all your rooms at the touch of a finger. The full-color VGA display, ultra-responsive touch screen and dedicated buttons make it a joy to use. And it's 100% dedicated to multi-room music control - pick it up or touch the screen and it's ready to go. With the Controller in hand you can quickly find and play music from your personal music library, Internet radio and the most popular online music services. Browse through albums and stations with a flick of a finger or search for your favorites by typing on the on-screen keyboard. Then, simply touch to play. You can play the same song in every room or different songs in different rooms with ease. SonosNet ensures that every Controller works wirelessly, all over the house, so you don't have to run back and forth to your computer. Instead, you can choose exactly what to play and where to play it from anywhere - sitting on the couch or cooking in the kitchen. Controllers aren't tied to a specific ZonePlayer, so you can use any Controller to control the music - and the volume - in all your rooms. And there's practically no limit to how many Controllers you can have - one for every room, floor or music lover in your house. The Sonos Controller also includes a Charging Cradle so it's always powered up and easy to find.
