About this deal

Realistically, this is an issue affecting all smart products, from speakers to TVs. If anything, the fact Sonos has supported older products for far longer than many other companies, and many people still love their older Sonos devices, has inadvertently served to make Sonos' future support issue a much bigger deal than it is for other companies. Gideon, Tim; Greenwald, Will (30 November 2015). "Sonos Play:5 Review & Rating". PC Magazine . Retrieved 4 November 2016– via Ziff Davis. The following older products are not compatible with the S2 software platform and will not receive future firmware updates: Compared to the sort of customer service I’m used to from audio and computer manufacturers, the Sonos way of handling technical support is a welcome change. Unlike the vast majority of companies Sonos seems to grasp that it is selling a music-delivery system, not just a bunch of boxes. Line In: Auto-detecting RCA allows any external audio source to be played by all ZonePlayers in the system

Sonos also includes a computer-based software program with every system that has the exact same functionality as the Controller. You can command any ZonePlayer in your system and add or remove music sources from your computer desktop. Smith, Will (4 May 2010). "Sonos ZonePlayer S5 Review". Tested . Retrieved 4 November 2016. [ permanent dead link] First some bad news for hi-res music fanatics. The highest sample rate the Sonos system will support is 44.1kHz at 16 bits. If you insist on having 96kHz or higher capabilities in your multi-room music server system, the Sonos will not satisfy your needs any better than the AppleTV or Logitech Squeezebox Duet. For hi-res you’re going to have to move up to a much higher-priced unit. The Sonos system just works, and with the iPhone controller app, it makes Apple's amazing convergence device all the more amazingly convergent. Would that my home were bigger, and I had more friends to party with more often (like in all those spy movies where the target is always throwing a huge bash just conveniently that very night -- that's the scale I'm thinking of!) Initially I attached the ZP90 ZonePlayer to my downstairs home theater and hooked up the ZP120 to a pair of Axiom 4B speakers in my workroom. After several weeks I relocated the ZP90 to my upstairs home theater and moved the ZP120 into my master bedroom/bathroom. Unlike some wireless systems, where changing the physical location of the components requires a complete re-setup, the Sonos system was up and running 30 seconds after re-installation.

If you want to add some bass on a budget, there's the Sonos Sub Mini. Smaller than the full-sized Sonos Sub, it offers snappy delivery and a discreet build at a price that's... well, not actually all that cheap, it turns out. Guess this is Sonos' take on "budget" device. But for smaller spaces, it could well fit the bill.

Sonos Controller sets up and controls the speaker only, with all third and first-party apps incompatible with the speakers. Furthermore, other music services such as Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, Pandora and others can be connected to the app and streamed through. The Sonos wireless sound system originally worked by connecting one single speaker to your home network, then adding more Sonos units (up to a maximum of 32) into the mix, using a dedicated secure wireless mesh network known as Sonosnet. Now, should you prefer, you can simply connect any number of Sonos products to your home wireless system – there's no longer a need for one device to be connected to your router.Playlists supported: Rhapsody, iTunes, WinAmp, Windows Media Player, and MusicMatch™ (.m3u, .pls, .wpl)
