Summary: I did a lot of research before dropping $500 on a wireless music player. After all, I have an amp with speakers and a auxiliary input for the iPhone or iPad. Both those devices connect to my WiFi for streaming internet radio and my music library. I was looking to streamline the set-up and not use my iDevices. The Sonos:Connect AMP looked to fit the bill. The description of requirements indicate all you need is a high speed broadband and a router. I have that!
Pros: Use to work good with no problems with my iPOD Touch. Connected it up with no problems, four SONOS Units 2 x Zone Player 90 and 2 x Zone Player 120 with over 8,000 songs.
Cons: If you have an iPOD and iPAD2 App controlling your SONOS and you receive an App upgrade SONOS has a sync problem. What ever device receives the App upgrade first is ok, 2nd device on more than five occurances brought the entire system down.
Summary: Very, very disappointed with my zone player. One of the selling points for me for buying this was that t worked with zune pass music files. I say worked because Sonos removed this functionality with a software "upgrade". It's unconscionable to me that a company removes functionality from a product after I've purchased it. Sonos offers no remedy for this either. There is no way to go back to the previous software version.
