Sonos ZonePlayer 120 review

 

If you already own a Sonos system, the new Sonos ZonePlayer 120 offers no compelling reason to upgrade, unless you have significant range problems. But for new buyers, the updated hardware should make the system even more reliable, especially in large...

Sonos Connect:Amp review

 

At the start of 2012, rumors started spreading that Google was readying a home theater device to rival the likes of the Apple TV and the Sonos system. But when that mythical creature turned out to be the Nexus Q , it was hard to swallow our collective...

The Sonos Connect:Amp is an excellent all-in-one digital music system that offers superb sound quality. It gives you access to nearly any cloud music service (Pandora, Spotify, Amazon, Rhapsody, and so forth) using any iOS device or Android smartphone...

You'll need to have separate speakers and a tablet or smartphone. The Sonos Connect:Amp doesn't support iTunes Match. While it can wirelessly interact with other Sonos products, you'll need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless Sonos Bridge...

The Sonos Connect:Amp is an excellent streaming-audio solution for sound-quality sticklers who prefer to supply their own speakers.

Sonos Connect:Amp

 

The Sonos Connect:Amp isn't cheap, but it's a no-compromise all-in-one digital music system that's perfect for people who are serious about digital music — and about cloud-based music services in particular.

Superb sound quality ; Access to cloud music services ; Uses any iOS device or Android smartphone as a remote ; Has a line-in, for connecting a TV or DVD player

Need to have separate speakers and a tablet or smartphone ; Doesn't support iTunes Match ; Need a hard-wired connection or the $49 wireless Sonos Bridge accessory to connect to other Sonos products

Easy Streamer

 

Easy to connect, easy to set up, easy to use, easy to listen to, easy to live with. Hard to pay so much. If ease of use is what you need then this is the streamer for you, it doesn't have high Res, ' cd quality' 44khz 16bit is the best you can get, but...

Should have bought months ago

 

Big initial cost, but wow, linked to my stereo bookshelf speakers they blow a pair of play 3's out of the water. Tones are now warmer, even streaming. Should have bought this first months ago.
