Summary: The Sonos products I have bought have been simply the best audio addition to my home ever. The Connect resolved my biggest dilemma of getting my online music sources and iTunes music sources to my existing fixed stereo equipment. I had no desire to place a PC or wiring from one over to my stereo. The Connect is small, simple to setup and wirelessly connects to my Sonos bridge network to access my music sources.
Essential for connecting non-Sonos components into the Sonos system

Summary: I bought the connector to incorporate my existing stereo system into my Sonos system (I wanted to be able to play the same music on the stereo as I do in the rest of the house, and also wanted to play music from the stereo system in other rooms). Success!! VERY easy setup. It is expensive, but allowed me to use components of my existing stereo system that I would otherwise have had to replace.
Summary: Works well when connected, a great solution for those whom have a wired home audio system that spans multiple rooms. Problem is that if left alone for a couple days, it loses connection with the bridge and you have to reconfigure the entire system like you do the first time around. I can understand losing connection and having to reestablish, but for the system to forget everything done prior like playlists, media sources, etc- annoying.
This is a GREAT system but be sure to buy all the parts

Summary: The SONOS wireless system for streaming music is incredible but their technical support is awful. If you have a strong router signal everywhere you want to have a speaker, you will not have a problem. The instructions are very easy and clear and you will be listening to wonderful quality music in no time. If, however, you have a rambling old house with poor signal strength in some areas like I do, you will tear your hair out trying to get the system to work.
Summary: Works great is easy to install and great software that makes it easy to use. I am using it as a standalone device hooked up to an existing hard wired whole house stereo system and it has made it possible to control the system from any smart phone or tablet.
Summary: Looking for a wireless audio system for the average person with easy setup and unlimited possibilities, this is it. I purchased at amazon.com, and had the bridge, sonos connect and sonos amp sent to my sisters in the states, who kindly delivered it to me for free. I didn't have to leave my house, although I did research at local electronics stores before I bought through Amazon and saved $250. The whole street loves it!
Summary: So set the wayback machine to 5 years ago. I converted CD's to mp3 and amassed a relatively good sized music collection. I was also into building vintage style tube stereo amplifiers and was looking for a way to get the music that I had on my PC upstairs down to my tube stereo in my downstairs bedroom. Sonos was around back then but was expensive and outside of my budget so I went out and got a Logitech Squeezebox Duet.
Summary: I bought the Sonos Connect primarily so I could listen to Spotify wirelessly on my living room stereo. I was very dissatisfied. The 2 star rating is for MY experience - I'm not trying to judge the product overall, but the Spotify integration is an advertised main feature so I think it's fair game. 1.
Wonderful to use, but tinny sound -external DAC strongly advised

Summary: Right up front, I should say that I'm not an audiophile. I am a musician and certainly appreciate good sound, but I don't invest a ton in it. For my home stereo I spent roughly $600 on a Yamaha receiver and $800 for a good pair of speakers. So while I certainly want a good sounding setup, I'm not obsessed with it and am happy with "mid-level" sound quality.
Summary: There's already many glowing reviews that will tell you all the many things Sonos does right. Here's some gotchas I wish I knew before making my purchase: . Pandora streams to Sonos at just 128Kbps. If you're a Pandora One customer used to the higher quality 192K streams on your PC, you'll notice the difference when you play it through Sonos (I wasted hours trying to figure out why my stereo sounded a lot less crisp only to be shocked to find that Pandora just won't...
