Good Sound Quality with Minimal Utility

Kent Siebeneck, Amazon
19 February 2014
  • Summary: I'm extremely disappointed in the Sonos I ordered, and I'm returning it immediately. I really like the sound quality of the Sonos music device. I say music device, because that's all it is. It's not a speaker system because all it does is stream music.

Frustrating

Scott, Crutchfield
10 January 2014
  • Summary: Where to begin. Im a electrical engineer and thought this would be a pretty easy set up. Wow. This is not great, I really want to open this thing up and look at what they put in this. I guarantee it's not quality and the programming to run is not robust. I got it to play right out of the box.
  • Pros: Pretty packaging and smart concept.
  • Cons: Just isn't robust enough.

Good digital system, terrible sound quality

DP, Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Context: My starting point is a 21 yr old Technics mid size system that originally cost $500. Each of the two speakers has three drivers and is about 15". My living room is regular sized --30' x 30'.

steer clear if you have a Mac running Yosemite

Peter E., Amazon
9 January 2015
  • Summary: I have had Sonos for a few years now, with my music library being my Mac Music folder. I updated the Mac to Yosemite, and now the system can't connect to the music folder. Sonos deny that there is any issue with the compatibility of their software with the new MacOS.

Don't bother - the sound is great but the app is awful

Good Bloke, Amazon
3 November 2014
  • Summary: Sonos used to be a really great bit of kit, easy to use and configure. As some have said, it doesn't link directly into your iTunes library so you can't use genius playlist etc, but you can easily use on-line music sources, such as Google Play, Amazon Cloud, Spotify etc.

Good... when it works

JohnM, Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Looks good, with good, not great, sound... if you can keep the connection alive. Sonos's qualities are meaningless to me as I spend most of my time trying to get the system to recognise itself or maintain its connection - usually ignores at least 1 of my 3 speakers.

Don't waste your money if using on Macs

  • Summary: My husband bought this system complete with bridge for my birthday. It was brilliant to start with. It worked for about 9 months. After that it continuously dropped out, could no longer find my iTunes music library and thees days can't even find my Sonos system..
