Amplifier Falls Slightly Short of a 35W Denon
BKK Reviewer, Amazon
21 February 2015
Summary: The Sonos system couldn't be easier to use, and this works fine with my KEF bookshelf speakers and Polk outdoor speakers, using a Niles speaker switching box. This replaced a Denon 35W/channel integrated amp, and despite the Sonos' higher wattage, it does not drive the speakers quite as well or as...
Surprisingly simple way to integrate your digital music library with existing speakers and sub-woofers

Summary: Very pleasantly surprised. The house I live in has built-in ceiling speakers in several of the rooms. This Sonos product allows me to connect those speakers to my digital music collection, and stream music as well as TV home theater (using a line-in jack).
Summary: I have several of these in our house and have them connected to wired speakers. Currently they are connected to my home network wirelessly but I'm thinking about hard wiring them back to my router. I really like Sonos and this equipment has worked flawlessly.
Love Sonos. We have almost everything in their catalog
15 December 2014
Summary: Love Sonos. We have almost everything in their catalog. Very easy to use, even though a little expensive. Had to buy this as a replacement after only 3 years. This may be an aberration, since the rest of our Sonos amps continue to work perfectly.
Summary: Here's what I did: I took all the music I had in my iTunes library, uploaded to Google Play Music for free, and then tell my phone to stream it right off of my Sonos. Or my phone into earbuds. Or from my desktop when I'm at work. No $8 or $10 per month, my music, where and whenever I want it.
Pros: - Keep your speakers & get more sound than even the largest spearkful Sonos - Playing music really, really just works - Lots of music services to choose from - App should continue to improve - small footprint, looks presentable in living room
Cons: - App isn't perfect yet, though it's quite good (What I'd especially love is if I could have a bookmark for genres of Google Music in the Favorites section) - Weirdly, little white light is just eternally on, unless you tell it to turn it off. Why not show idle/sleep mode? - Doesn't work with iTu...
Summary: I purchased the connect:amp so that I could run outdoor speakers through Sonos. Like other Sonos components, it is ridiculously easy to set up and works instantly. I personally wish that there was more power per channel and that you could run more than a single pair of speakers through the amp (and...
Pros: Ease of setup and use Wireless control of speakers
Awesome little device, but it won't replace a larger amp
18 March 2014
Summary: I bought this hoping it could take the place of my Yamaha RX-V665 in my living room. I run a pair of Polk RTiA3 speakers and an Outlaw Audio LFM-1 Plus subwoofer. The CONNECT:AMP sounds good when those three speakers are working together, but if I shut off the sub, there is a noticeable lack of bass...
Summary: The product works like a charm. It's easy to set-up, non-obtrusive and produces great sound. No complaints on aesthetics or functionality. Docking 1 star because of the price. This thing is expensive! Would love to see some competition in the market to drive the price of this product down.
Summary: Most people put cost as a con to Sonos: I say, NO WAY! Sonos delivers great value for the money. I over-analyzed all options for our new construction project and went with hard-wired speakers back to a closet full of Connect:amps.
Pros: Easy to set up, easy to use. Flexible, versatile. Whole home audio made DIY easy. Great value. Crutchfield performed flawlessly: Quick delivery, great service. Every online shopping experience should be measured by them. Good work!
Cons: No YouTube support (are you listening Sonos?). Big miss!
