Excerpt: Set it up in my home office- very quick, easy to carry out instructions without any technical jargon. iPhone immediately synced and I was listening to my tunes. Would like to have synced it with my Sonos 3 for stereo, but apparently you need two of the same model units to do that. Plenty of volume and enjoyable output.
Excerpt: The Sonos system is definitely worth the money. Set up was a bit challenging at times. Had to do a system update 3 times before it ran. The bass isn't as loud as my old system with the subwoofer...but plenty adequate for our needs. Plus, I could always add the Sonos subwoofer. Which brings me to this: I love the fact that you can add to the system & it's all integrated. The app is very impressive. My entire family downloaded the app & it works seamlessly.
Excerpt: After much research into products from Sonos, Bose, Samsung and others, decided to go with Sonos speaker system. Quick easy setup; superb sound quality; more music options available including playing my own music catalog from hard disk without proprietary software; stereo capability is a plus; using Sonos software on computer, Android phones and tablets all at the same time to control music and volumes in each room; better price point.
Excerpt: I bought the Play: 5 because of its line in feature. Once I got it home and hooked up, I found out it's even better than I'd thought! It turns out that I can plug something into the line-in jack -- in my case, an Apple Airport Express -- and 'tune' my Play: 1 to the input on the Play: 5! This means that I can stream audio from my iPhone, iPad, or Mac to any of my Sonos speakers!
Excerpt: I am not an Audiophile but do prefer to experience good quality music and Sonos meets the requirements. Pros : 1. Great audio experience 2. Portable and easy to move 3. Wifi connected 4. iPhone / Andriod app to control music 5. Alarms to kickstart the day with music 6. Support for major music streaming services (also a con) Cons : 1. Doesn't support airplay or chrome cast 2. Limited choice of streaming music services (covers most of the popular ones though) 3.
Pros: Alarms - Start Music, Easy To Transport, Great Audio Experience, Great Sound, Iphone Andriod App, Iphone Andriod App To C, Major Music Streaming, Wifi Connected
Cons: Airplay Or Chrome Cast, Audio Out To Tv Not Easy, Limited Choice Of Streami, No Youtube Support
Excerpt: Sound is great out of this thing. My daughter had no problem to hook this up to the home network and link the app on her phone to control it; she didn't even read the instructions. Something that I think was a little disappointing is the fact that you can't play, let's say, "plain" audio from your computer ...for example to play a youtube video and make it sound through the Sonos ...not wirelessly.
