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.
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: . (UPDATE: no longer true. See comment below) Pandora streams to Sonos at just 128Kbps.
Summary: Device does what it is supposed to do, however it is very suceptible to intereference from other wireless devices Unfortunately it works on an older more crowded 2.4 mhz band rather than the newer more stable and less crowded 5mhz band.
Pros: Small footprint ; excellent tech support; well made

Summary: I purchased this product. It works as advertised, a very simple device to setup and use on your home network. It has a couple of limitations which are a problem for people who have large music collections or multiple computers with shared music files. 1.
Summary: I have had my Sonos system for over two years and overall am very happy with it. The main problem I have with the line-in input. I have the unit connected to my hi-fi and when I try to stream input from my cd player or receiver after a while the sound starts cutting out on my remote sonos units.
Summary: I just bought a Sonos system. Its pretty cool to control it with your phone, and accessing all my music is easy. The trouble is synchronization. The synch is fine between the Sonos units themselves, but trouble arises when you try to incorporate a separate home theater amp using the Line Out on the...
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.
After a horrible start with a faulty Connect, I love it now!

Summary: I bought a Sonos Connect and three Play 5s a year-and-a-half ago. The system has failed consistently. I bought a new NAS drive and wired everything that could be wired. But the music dropped daily.
