Excerpt: I love Sonos for its convenience and sound. I already have a several speakers and there is no easier to fill the house with music from the Internet (Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, etc.). I also love the controls via an app on my phone.

Summary: The Sonos interface is terrific - they really planned it out well. This is a great system to hook into a legacy stereo system. I have a receiver that supports 4 sets of speakers throughout my house. I plugged this into my aux input and now I can remotely control content to those speakers.
Summary: 4 stars for being over priced. I love sonos and they have me hijacked! I had to buy this to integrate my home theatre speakers. It's worth doing but honestly this unit should be priced at around $200. It doesn't have an amplifier it's just a sound source for your amplifier.
Great way to link outdoor speaker/receiver to Sonos speakers

Excerpt: The connect works extremely well and very easy to setup. I was able to connect my Sonos indoor speakers with my outdoor speakers via a Yamaha receiver. Because you have a volume control on the sonos app and on the receiver, they will both battle one another.
Summary: I purchased this to allow us play via our iOS devices digital music stored on a Mac Mini server on our legacy Pioneer AVR and Mirage OS3 speakers. I connected the Connect to the AVR using a TOSLINK digital audio cable.
Pros: Quality construction. Worked out of the box. Quality app for both iOS and Mac.
Cons: Price. That's the reason for the four out of five stars rating.
Summary: I purchased this item to connect my old school stereo receiver to wireless speakers. I also purchased the Sonos Play3. The setup was easy and it works as expected. It is a little pricy, but I now can play my old 33 RPM records and have the music wirelessly streamed to other rooms in the house.
Pros: Easy setup.
Cons: Price. Only works with Sonos wireless speakers.
