Summary: Functional product. Currently using with a number of sonos products to extend the wireless range so that I can control speakers that are outside while outside (despite the connect amp being inside).
Summary: I have this supporting a PLAY:1 and a PLAY:5 and the syncrhonisation appears to be good so far with no drops. Not sure what the range will be like when I one in the top level. Maybe having this support power over ethernet would enable easier positioning nearer the middle of the house.
Pros: Small and easy to setup.
Cons: Would have loved for this to have a line in, then it would have been 5 stars. I have not googled this yet, but would like to be able to add new remotes without having to push the button.
Summary: I purchased the Bridge with a Connect Amp and am very pleased. It is easy to set up with great sound and functionality. It is a compact unit, which is nice. I hope Sonos introduces feature to play simultaneously through computer speakers.
Pros: Easy set-up.
Cons: Cannot play music simultaneously through speakers hooked up to computer. Did not know wireless router was needed to use smart phone app as controller.
Summary: My experience with the BRIDGE started with the helpful folks at Crutchfield walking my through the needed components to hook up my receiver and speakers to a Sonos system. Out of the box the BRIDGE was easy to setup and had all of the wiring needed to attached the unit to my router. One item of note on page 8 of the online manual it states: "Connect a Sonos component to your broadband router using an Ethernet cable (supplied).
Pros: Easy setup Purchase simplicity and customer service from the folks at Crutchfield
Cons: Clarify the users guide related to the router used to eliminate confusion on firewall issues.
Summary: This is an essential component if you are using any other Sonos product. Installation was extremely simple and quick. Thereafter it has functioned flawlessly. Don't buy another Sonos item without getting this as well.
