....and must say,I'm impressed,and it takes alot to impress me. Set up couldn't be any easier. In a day of computer challenged folks, Sonos has made it so easy that a 4th grader or a senior citizen could set it up. Their software is outstanding and what makes it even better, it works effortlessly. With access to internet radio from around the world, it is blowing my mind with the search features it contains.
I picked up a ZP90, Zonebridge, S5, and a controller. When they say it's pretty much plug and play,they aren't kidding. Probably will get the IPOD thingy too for a hundred bucks, it keeps the signal digital at least and doesn't do any cheapo d/a conversion.
So how does it sound ? Better than I expected. For right now, I have my music in Itunes, lossless. The ZP90 connected by digital coaxle to my pioneer receiver. In the future I'll probably convert everything to flac and of coarse a dac would help but one thing at a time or the wife will shoot me. That Burson is calling my name in my sleep. My goal was to get as close to cd quality sound with what I have to work with. I think I did that so far but I know with a few small tweeks I can make it better. Radio sounds awesome, and with the S5 I can just unplug it and bring it out on the deck for gatherings. The versatility of this thing is just sick. Have all your guest bring their IPOD,Iphone, plug into the sonos dock and control from the controller or turn your own Iphone into a controller by the free app, anywhere,your not teathered by wires.
Thanks to Phil, for pushing me over the edge, sometimes I'm guilty of being a fence sitter too long. Thanks pal.
Sonos does what it says it will do, with no complicated setup. I'm pretty frickin' pleased with this thing. Go get one.
