Sonos Bundle 250 with Sonos Controller CR200 review
14 October 2009
Conclusion: Okay so we've heaped more than enough praise on the Sonos Bundle and accompanying controller. There must be something wrong? Well there are two gripes, both of which are us clutching at straws to be honest. The first is that we found the remote control was constantly firing into action, almost to say hello. It didn't make anything happen, but on a coffee table or desk out of the corner of your eye its something you notice and therefore becomes annoying.
Pros: Incredibly simple to use, incredibly simple to set-up, you can't ask for much more from a dedicated controller
Cons: The system is expensive for what it does, you could get away using an iPod or iPhone instead
