Sonos Digital Music System

 

The Sonos Music system is all meshed up. That's a good thing. A new twist on multi-room audio, Sonos uses a wireless mesh networking technology called Sonosnet to transmit music files from a home PC to up to 32 zones in the house (go slowly; at a...

Easy to setup and use; good sound quality; bright and colorful display on remote

First ZonePlayer must be physically connected to the router; the system depends on the remote controller

The Sonos is an impressive digital-age multi-room music system that gives you room to grow.

Yahoo is carrying an AP review of the Sonos Digital Music System that pretty much follows the line you'd expect-it's really cool, but it costs a bundle. Although they do point out one potential flaw that might be a deal-breaker for some-it currently...

Sonos Digital Music System (ZP100 bundle)

 

Editor's note: As of May 2007, Sonos has discontinued the distribution of this particular configuration of its Digital Music System. In its place, the very similar Sonos BU130 bundle is available instead.

The Sonos Digital Music System is sleekly designed and easy to set up, and its wireless, color-screen remote allows you to access your music from anywhere in the house. The Sonos system is also easily expandable (to as many as 32 rooms); it has a...

ZonePlayer includes 4-port switch ; Wireless color LCD Controller w/auto backlight ; Automatic subwoofer detect with 80Hz crossover ; Super easy setup ; ZonePlayer includes 2x50 watt amplifier ; Extensive user manual with excellent instructions & help...

Very few controls on actual ZonePlayers ; Sonos speakers could benefit from the use of a dedicated subwoofer ; No included dock for Controller and difficult-to-open DC adapter connector cover ; No digital audio output

Not to sound cynical, but, at this stage of the distributed audio game, "me too" products don't cut it anymore. What we want is something new, something different, something better. Luckily for Sonos, that's what their Digital Music System delivers....

Review: Sonos Digital Music System

 

At least one ZonePlayer in your Sonos setup must be connected via Ethernet. Sonos supplies several options for getting this done, such as showing you how to setup Internet sharing. Each ZonePlayer has a built-in Ethernet switch so you don't have to...
