Summary: If your goal is to stream audio from an iPod using the old 30-pin dock connector to your Sonos speakers, this is the way to do it. I use it with a 6th-gen iPod Nano. It locks up every once in a while, but all you have to do to fix that is reset the iPod by holding down the sleep/wake button and the volume down button for a few seconds. Put it right by your front door and you'll be able to transition between headphones and Sonos almost seamlessly.
Summary: Sonos is pricey, but you can't beat it for a wireless sound system that just works. Easy to set up, easy to use. Had a problem connecting to my computer once, and their tech support took care of it. It's taken me a couple years, but I now have Sonos speakers all over my house and I love them.
Summary: Simple to set up with sonos 5 and and bridge. Installed software on my PC and downloaded controller app for my Galaxy S3. The whole took 30 minutes and I was playing the Ipod or Pandora wirelessly in my living room or the entire music collection on my PC.
Summary: Sonos has published that they will no longer make this device. However, support will be available for existing owners for the time being. The reason they provided is because the new iPhone 5 connector will not work on this device.
Summary: I purchased the Sonos dock to play protected iTunes songs on my iPod instead of repurchasing them and it works as advertised. Only issue I experienced was the dock wouldn't play the track I selected, and after turning the shuffle track option on the iPod off I've had no issues. Another nice Sonos product.
Summary: I do not have the great experiences others have had with the iPod dock. I have 6 Sonos components and they all work fairly flawlessly. They get music from the internet (Rhapsody) or my Media Vault without issue. This dock, however, constantly drops the WiFi connection. It really cannot get through a single song without losing the signal. Doesn't matter where the device is placed or the iPod used.
Summary: Wow, This sounds awesome, at first I was wondering what benefit it would have for me. I only have a laptop computer, so this solves the problem of leaving my laptop on all the time as I now have to do.. As you know Laptops get hot, so it often annoyed me that I had to leave it on all the time to listen to my music.. Sonos has solved the problem.. When my friends visit, I often use the inline system to listen to their music, the dock will simplifiy this also..
Summary: We've had a Sonos system for nearly 2 years, and it's truly life-changing. We bought this dock about a year ago. Here's why: 1)Instead of buying a second Sonos controller for the kitchen, we bought an Ipod Touch. It's actually cheaper to buy the Sonos dock AND a current generation 8gb Ipod Touch! Plus, the Ipod Touch can do so much more than a Sonos controller. 2)Maybe someday I'll get around to putting my music on a NAS drive.
