Sonos Bundle 150

 

You know a product is uncommonly designed when each of its successors looks and functions pretty much like the original. Such is the case with the latest revamp of the Sonos multiroom audio system. All the latest changes are inside the product or the...

Easy to set up and expand; free subs to Pandora and Last.fm; awesome controller

Bundle pushes you into buying an amplified ZonePlayer you might not want

We consider the Sonos the gold standard in music streaming. But we do wish the company offered more bundle choices. Buying the ZP90, ZP120, and CR100 controller in this package provides a $250 discount over buying the pieces separately, but if you...

Sonos Bundle 150

 

Instead of lugging a boom box from room to room or turning up the volume on your stereo or TV really loud, the lets you blast tunes all around your house via a network.

Sounds great. Simple setup and interface. Mac software can also control music. Plays from local and Internet sources. Modular design lets you add more hardware later. Clear, 3.5-inch color screen

Lacks touchscreen. Having to pay extra for a charging cradle doesn't feel right. Doesn't play protected-AAC iTunes Store files. Expensive

The Sonos Bundle 150 feels dated without a touchscreen or sleeker remote. The simple interface and setup could save you time, but is that enough justify the price?

Bundle Your Music: Tunes, Speakers and 800 Radio Channe...

 

Apple TV $229 iTunes streaming, HD video rentals, and the iPhone as WiFi controller all shred, but it's zone-deficient. D-Link DSM-330 $300 Streams music

Resuscitates the radio star with more than 800 channels — including Sirius, Pandora and internet radio. Setup makes gum-chewing seem bafflingly complex

Might be cheaper to hire a cover band to rock your living room. Kind of a music snob: Sonos doesn't cotton to iTunes DRM and refuses to play it

Sonos Bundle 150

 

premier home wireless audio system. And partnerships with Rhapsody, Napster, Sirius, and Pandora only increase the value of the system.

Easy to set up. Excellent user interface. Superb remote control. Seamless integration with your PC's music collectioneven iTunes. Plays different songs in different zones simultaneously. Solid integration of music services such as Rhapsody and Sirius.

If you lose your Wi-Fi signal, the music stops. Host computers can't be left in sleep mode while streaming. Track navigation could be better. Amplifier sounds a little sterile.

Although pricey, the Sonos Bundle 150 is the perfect solution for those with several musical tastesand many roomsin the same house. Whether you use Rhapsody, iTunes, or Sirius, this deluxe wireless home audio system works seamlessly.

Object of Desire: Sonos Digital Music System

 

Wirelessly beam your tunes to anywhere in your home or studio.

The Sonos system comes in various configurations but we recommend the Sonos Bundle 130 ($999) which will get the party started in two rooms in your home or studio

Innovative system's similarities to the iPod are more than skin deep.

I have had the Sonos system for over 3 years. A little bit of reading the forums and setup was no problem. I now have access to all my digital music, including my CD's I have ripped, iTunes, internet radio, local radio stations, rhapsody, pandora, and...

Sonos BU150 Digital Music System

 

The greatest electronic item I have ever bought. Puts Crestron to shame.

Ease of use, 100% reliability, great tech support (if needed), simple set up, great sound,, constant updates with new features

Not cheap - but worth it

Sonos Is The Best, Hands Down!

 

We went from LPs and 8-Tracks, to Cassette Tapes and CDs, and now we live in the age of portable digital music. We walk around with portable digital music players (aka, "the iPod"), use cellular phones that double as digital music players, and even...

Fast and Simple  ; Installation, Easy and Fun To Use, Awesome Wireless Controller

Charging Cradle for Remote Not Included, Expensive, Cannot Stream DRM Protected iTunes Music

Product Specifications

The Sonos Bundle 150 is the best way to get started with Sonos. In one convenient and cost-effective package you'll have two ZonePlayers and a handheld Controller so you can wirelessly play music in any two rooms of your house. And when you want to play more music in more rooms, simply add ZonePlayers and Controllers to your heart's content without adding wires. Setup couldn't be easier. Just connect the ZonePlayer 90 to your home theater or stereo and place the ZonePlayer 120 with built-in amplifier in any room where you want music. Connect one ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge (not included) to your network and all the rest work wirelessly. To start playing music, grab the full-color wireless Controller and pick a room, pick a song and hit play. With the Controller in hand you'll have instant access to your entire music collection, plus thousands of Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services to play all over the house.
