Sonos ZonePlayer ZP100

 

Supports MP3: Yes, Supports WMA: Yes, Shows Video: No

Simple, elegant, effortless. Plays the same music simultaneously in multiple rooms, or different music in different rooms. Reads directly from network hard disks.

No on-screen (TV) display. Costly compared to simpler digital audio hubs. No photos or video display. Won't play WMA lossless or DRM audio, FLAC, or Ogg Vorbis files, yet.

Sonos comes through with the best and easiest audio-only media hub we've seen so far. The ZonePlayer ZP100 is expensive for an audio hub, but cheap compared with other whole-house audio systems.

Great. Does everything you want and need it to do.

 

I use my older ZonePlayer100 for hooking up more than one pair of speakers for multiple outdoor areas. The Play3 and Play5 have reduced the cost of zones. I've been adding about a zone a year. The more zones I have the more I enjoy it. Don't need ......

Instant access to all my music: my computer, internet radio, music services (e.g. Rhapsody), iPods, etc. Easy set up. Not cheap but great quality, great features, and great customer service

It is a bit expensive and they never have any appreciable sales. But the Play3 and the Play5 now make it possible to add a zone for a very competitive price

Consumer review by:

Wow. The technology is great. Works like a charm.

 

This thing is truly AWESOME and could be the revolution in home audio...except...pricing is way out of line. Let's lower the price to $799 for the starter package and $149 for the controller, $299 for each zone player. Lower the pricing and watch Sonos...

Setup is easy. Functionality is great

Very expensive to setup a 10 room house. Yes, that's a big house but

Performance & Sound Quality

 

Maybe problems aren't the norm...but my player was a really expensive mistake. Stutters and stops. FAQ solutions don't solve the problem - and they're out of date. 2nd - sound quality is HORRIBLE if you don't use their amplifier - so if you have more...

A lot of promise

Not great for everyone; Expensive mistake

Review: Sonos ZP100/ZP80 digital music system

 

We test out the ultimate music streamer from the bods at Sonos.

Total convenience ; looks great ; will REALLY impress your mates

Too expensive ; predictable DRM issues

Expert review by:

Sonos Digital Music System ZP100 + CR100

 

Music streaming, internet radio and effortless multi-room playback - Sonos has built possibly the greatest gadget since the PVR.

Effortless streaming; good file support; gorgeous design; multi-room capability

No support for DRM-protected files; very pricey

Sonos ZP100 Digital Music System

 

There have been a few low-cost, wireless options that have emerged recently, but none look so good or show as much promise as the Sonos digital music system...

Very easy to use, generally reliable, cool factor is off the scale ;

Set-up can be fiddly, especially if there are computer firewalls involved, range isn't all it's cracked up to be

Because the real beauty of the Sonos system is that you don't have to see it. It consists of one or more boxes, or 'ZonePlayers' containing contains a 50-watt amp (plenty of power for average rooms) which can link wirelessly to each other using Sonos's...
