Great Unit, just not enough watts per channel

Hawks76, Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: Purchased this to drive a set of Bose Free Space® 51 environmental speakers out by the pool. As with all Sonos devices, setup was a breeze and was up and running in minutes. This unit comes with 2 channels at 55 watts per channel. unfortunately, that just wasn't enough to drive the speakers. The unit itself is a good unit for smaller speakers. I am returning this and getting a Yamaha 100W per channel amp and the Sonos Connect.

Not quite paradise.....

  • Summary: First let me say that I have no intention of returning my ZonePlayer 120 amp. I'm not sure I could replace it with something that performs nearly as well as it does. But it has not been a painless installation, by far. If you have a large music collection, especially classical music, you may be in for disappointment.
  • Pros: Wonderful concept. Great for smaller collections that meets Sonos criteria. Awesome, knowledgeable technical support.
  • Cons: Large music collections be warned. Metadata limitations. Alternative solutions (Amazon Cloudplayer/Windows Mediaplayer) presented by Sonos are not currently adequate. Sonos technical solutions slow in coming. No "hard" fixes for current capacity issues.

Not enough watts

  • Summary: I have a Marrantz multi room amp, which sends sends out sound to six speakers simultaneously. I removed one channel on my marrantz which goes outdoors, and replaced that channel with this Sonos Amp. I wanted the luxury of being able to control the sound outdoors from my iPhone. This beautiful sounding Sonos Amp simply could not power up my speakers with enough volume to fill up my yard running Bose outdoor speakers.

This one works! (Beware of radio listen again though)

Class of 1984, Amazon

  • Summary: [Original review September 2011] My wife bought one recently but it was dead on arrival! We already had a ZP120 and ZP90, so we knew what to expect. And when I say it was dead, I mean completely dead! So she returned it and got a full refund. Anyway, I took a chance by ordering another one, and we've finally got our second working ZP120. Despite the above problem, I'm still a fan of the system. It is very quick and easy to set up.

Klang: Räumlichkeit, Dynamik? Vergleich mit Cambridge Audio Minx XI

25 June 2014
  • Summary: Nachdem ich mir neue Boxen (Canton Vento 820.2 und den passenden Canton Sub) gekauft hatte, schloss ich diese an den Sonos AMP an. Ergebnis Klang war okay, aber nicht mehr, es fehlte mir die Räumlichkeit, die Dynamik. Also war ich auf der Suche nach einer Lösung, die mehr den Klang/ Sound u.a. bei Klassik in den Vordergrund stellt. Da meine Frau auf CD hören besteht, war zum Anschluß eines CD Players ein analog Input Pflicht (k.o.

  • Summary: Rätt bra ljud men dålig funktionalitet. Den spelar bara upp ljud som man kör genom ett speciellt program, Sonos Controller. Tyvärr klarar Sonos Controller bara av att köra vissa ljudkällor, som radiokanaler och spotify. Inte datorns cd-spelare, nedladdade filmer eller datorspel. Vidare är gränssnittet kass. Du tappar en hel del funktioner som finns i spotify när du använder Sonos egna program.

Ganska bra

  • Summary: Inköpt idag 2012.05.07 så omdömet baseras endast på ett par timmars lyssnande. Köpte den för att driva ett par utomhushögtalare (Apart Sdq8). Det låter okej - högtalarna kostar ett par tusen kronor för ett par så det är inte Hi-end på något sätt men jag hade förväntat mig mer kraft från Sonos stärkaren. Visserligen är den liten men en digital förstärkare tar ju inte mycket plats och brukar kunna pumpa på bra.

  • Summary: Nachdem mir mein 20 Jahre alter Onkyo Receiver unbrauchbar ist und mein stationärer Pontis MS300 in die Jahre gekommen ist, habe ich mich nach einem Ersatz umgeschaut. Den MS300 hatte ich schon vorher durch Synology DS111 ersetzt, die mit einem USB-Soundadapter mit meinem Onkyo verbunden war.

Achtung bei wirklich großen Musilksammlungen

  • Summary: Habe den Sonos ZP 120 gestern als Zweitanlage geordert, dank Prime heute mittag wohlverpackt erhalten und natürlich gleich installiert. Die Installation selbst ist äußerst simpel und hat mit Abbau der alten Anlage ca. 20 Minuten gedauert. Der Sound ist mit meinen uralten B&W CDM1 Boxen für die Preisklasse mehr als ordentlich. Klar, dass man auf der High End wesentlich feinere Dinge zu hören bekommt.
