Reviews and Problems with Sonos Connect:Amp / ZonePlayer 120
Showing 1-10 of 42
Great Unit, just not enough watts per channel
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.
Summary: The Sonos product offering is great and high quality. The App that drives the system is awful. You are limited by the music installed in what ever device you use. If you use an iPad, you can only play some of the song in our iTunes library. It cannot access your entire iTunes library or remote iTunes library nor the cloud. Does not have airplay, so you can't stream sour from Vimeo or Youtube. It needs to be airplay compatible to be of use.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Cons: Limited Functions, No airplay, No Digital Inout
Summary: The connect: amp is out of sync of all other sonos devices. i have play 3, play 5, and connect and they all sync music fine but the amp is delayed so if you have it near a room with a different device, you cannot put them together in party mode without an annoying delay.
Summary: Use as my main living room/tv system. Sounds very good, though I would love to have more sonic flexibility (ie, a more detailed dsp eq, sound limiter--there are very basic functions that would be extremely simple to program), perhaps an external controller so I don't have to boot my ipad or iphone every time i need to change the volume. Also, negotiating the GUI/tunes list is not that intuitive to me.
Pros: Compact, Easy To Set Up, Energy Efficient, Good Power Output, Great Sound Quality
Cons: Bad Gui Few Options, Confusing / Bad Remote Control, Limited Functions
Summary: I have six Sonos amps, and one Sonos subwoofer. I use my Sonos system to stream music (radio and my own) inside the house and water sounds outside, to mask street noise. When it works, it's terrific--a brilliant system. But there are a lot of hiccups--maybe it's because of Apple or Verizon or the sun and the moon. The result is intermittent headaches: Why has it stopped? Why can't it connect to that music file anymore? Why can't it connect to that radio station anymore?
Pros: Different Music, Different Rooms, Streams All My Music, and More, Wireless
