Simply and effectively puts SONOS on your home theater; too expensive though

Andy A, Amazon
22 January 2015
  • Summary: The SONOS CONNECT is a really well thought-out and executed product. It does exactly what it needs to do, and does it extremely well. I bought it to be able to integrate my home theater setup (NAD T758 and B&W CM series speakers) with my existing Sonos setup (three PLAY:1s and one PLAY:5). Since I love the DAC in my NAD T758, I opted to pipe out a digital signal from the CONNECT to my NAD via an optical cable.

Easy and Functional

  • Summary: I would give the Sonos Connect a high recommendation based on the ability to reliably stream music to various parts of your home. For me, I got a Connect so I could integrate Sonos into my existing stereo system. Set-up was quick & easy, and the apps control the player through any tablet or smart phone, including a desktop PC.
  • Pros: Easy to us; integrates well with existing components. Reliably works.
  • Cons: No screen, 65k song limit, inability to play higher resolution files (e.g. 96/24).

Sonos; cut the cord!

Jeff T, Crutchfield
27 February 2014
  • Summary: I hesitated before buying the sonos system because of concerns about sound quality. Yes, the bitrate is capped, but if you have good source material, it sounds just as good as a CD. I have the Connect and play it through my stereo and for the most part, it rocks. And all the internet radio is awesome! The app controller is great, very easy to use and works with little to no delay. I am just really impressed overall with Sonos, it has done better then I ever expected.
  • Pros: Simple setup, ease of use, works as advertised
  • Cons: cost

Loving the SONOS system, just feels like the CONNECT is a little over-priced.

James L, Amazon
18 February 2014
  • Summary: I paired this CONNECT with my home theater system to drive my indoor surround speakers and my outside patio speakers (via Zone2 on my receiver). The CONNECT works flawlessly with my system and interacts well with my SONOS:PLAY5. My biggest concern is that the CONNECT feels overpriced. It's only $50 less than a PLAY5, yet contains no amplifier or speakers.

Sonos Connect

BruceF, Crutchfield
10 February 2014
  • Summary: The Sonos system and hardware are second to none. That said their software is decidedly anti-Microsoft. Their Windows desktop controller software is looking dated. They have no Windows 8 support. Absolutely nothing for RT or Winphone. The third part app is ok for Winphone but the RT app is unusable. So if you are a Windows user prepare to be a little frustrated.
  • Pros: Versatility Internet music Ability to access NAS
  • Cons: Lack of Windows support

Fun replacement for radio, and CDs

Brian, Crutchfield
10 February 2014
  • Summary: Interface is beyond five star - easy, easy, easy. So much you can do with playlists. You can be playing any song anyone names within 10 seconds or less - even if you don't have the album, or never heard of the artist, thanks to spotify. Only reason I didn't give five stars is because they don't support hi resolution audio.
  • Pros: The interface - sound quality is very good (CD Quality) but not DVD or Blue Ray quality fidelity. Can synchronize many sonos players (party mode) or control independently.
  • Cons: Resolution is limited to CD quality max, regardless of source resolution.

It just works!

CBMusika, Amazon
12 January 2014
  • Summary: Sometimes something can be so elegantly simple that it seems like it's very expensive for what it is. This is one of those times and that's the beauty of it. I'm willing to pay for all those engineering hours that went into making a product that just works. Why only 4 stars? Sirius does drop out every now and then. And I do wish Sonos was clearer about how the Connect fits into the picture.

Great to Expand A/V Zone Coverage

Hiram B., Crutchfield
16 June 2013
  • Summary: Works as advertised and then some ... The documentation highlights how the CONNECT hooks to your existing receiver and expands it functionality by providing access to your Rip Libraries, iTunes and a great number of internet music services. Yet for me the best feature is that the CONNECT also allows you to expand the coverage of sound sources connected to your A/V receiver.
  • Pros: -easy installation -lets you expand your A/V with internet music services -analog input allows Sonos speakers to connect to A/V Zones, and expand the coverage of the music sources connected to your A/V system
  • Cons: Expensive solution

SONOS CONNECT SOME WHAT

LarryT, Crutchfield
12 June 2013
  • Summary: Enjoy my Sonos connect. My only concern was in downloading HD Tacks to my iTunes account. I wanted to listen to HD tracks from Sonos thru iTunes. I was able to load HD tracks to the Sonus but they would not play. Keep getting info from Sonos that said the HD Tracks was not supported. Contacted Sonos and was told that they don't support 24 bit music. That was disappointing to hear but I will get over it.
  • Pros: good for what it was designed to do but does need to be updated so it can handle 24 bit music
  • Cons: not able to play any music that has more than 16 bits
