Summary: I bought it because my radio didn't really work well anymore and with this I could get pretty much any station in the world and after I got the bridge, I taught I won't need internet connection, just wifi. unfortunately I was missing signal very often with bridge and decided that I'll need to run internet connection to it. Of course my new receiver has connection as well and I don't really need sonos anymore.
Summary: My son set it up the first time , he was able to set it up relatively quickly on his computor. I however had a difficult time setting it up on my computor. Your web site seems to be set up more for buyers of the hardware than the customer that has already purchased. I had a very hard time finding out where to log in to my account. I am realtivly tech savy and it was difficult. Once I figured it out I love it.
Pros: Clear Sound
Cons: Difficult To Set Up, First Set Up Was Fine Dr
Summary: Already have home theater / TV setup so don't need a Sonos Playbar and Sub. Just wanted to expand my Sonos net onto this setup. My new Connect succeeded with this -- I'm now listening to Sonos music in my living room. The Connect installed with the same dummy-proof ease I've come to expect and it delivers great sound thru my existing setup. But I can't seem to crack one last nut, so I'm only giving it four stars. I want to hook up my TV also.
Summary: The connect works well to integrate an existing home system with your Sonos equipment. I play music inside and out, using Sonos and my home system. No lag in sound and it's really easy to balance the sound levels on the app. Only issue, the unit gets hot, so make sure it's in an open space.
Summary: Everything was as mentioned and hooked up immediately on the network and with my computer. Sounded great, played iTunes (have 22,000 songs on there), Spotify and Pandora and tons of Internet radio stations. The only bad thing with this was my iPad and my Android phone would not work due to our firewall on our home network.
Pros: Clear Sound, Easy To Set Up, Intuitive Controls
Summary: Easy to set up, looks good and very good dedicated network stability. A couple of things to point out: 1) You need a sonos bridge before you do anything. 2)The sonos software as well as the app (tablet, smartphone etc...) are not music management programms but mere controllers. (For music management, I would suggest Jriver Media Center. Okay it is not free but it is awesome and after a 30 day free trial you will be happy to part with you hard earned cash).
Summary: Super clear sound and it's great to use an i-pad or smart phone to change channels, etc., but the inability to use I-tunes radio is a huge problem for my wife. She wants to listen as the songs roll on without voting yes or no. Just provide her with good music as listed as "Smooth Jazz" and so forth. Apple does this, but Sonos doesn't connect wirelessly with Apple. Also, I had to get a paid Spotify subscription to use it with Sonos.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Very Clear Sound
Cons: Need Spotify Subscription, No Ability To Use I-tunes, Poor Interface
