Great Sounding Product


I bought the Sonos as I had ripped my entire CD collection to my computer and have around 12,000 files loaded and still ripping. None of my smart TVs or bluray players could read the song list off of each CD in the correct order from Windows Media...

Not quite ready for prime-time


Plays most media fine (although it doesn't play Audible content so audio books are out) but the turntable drops out frequently. I don't believe I've made it all the way through an entire album without experiencing drop-outs. I have the latest AirPort,...

Great product but not perfect


Works well I am using several Connect's in a whole house audio system. They are lacking the ability to be used as a computer speaker perhaps adding Bluetooth to them. The price tag is a bit heavy for a Connect. And they would be the front runner in...

Haven't listened to CDs since purchasing the Sonos


I bought this thing because I was looking for a replacement FM tuner and knew nothing about music streaming. Wow! Where have I been all these years? Being able to play music from any one of thousands of radio stations, from my computer, tablet, or...

Big sound from Streaming Sources


I just added a high end audio system. I wanted a way to play my streaming sources including internet radio (TuneIn) and digital audio library. This device, along with the network bridge allows the Sonos app to stream my digital sources to my receiver....
