        Comments about Sonos Connect (Formerly the ZonePlayer 90):

        This has to be the most easy thing to set up. It's (just about) plug and play. I didn't believe it at first when the sale person at B&H said it, but he was right. I plugged it into my switch, pushed two buttons.....and I was good to go. It took about 5 minutes of research on how to link my iTunes account, but that went smooth too.

            For it's fundamental task this player does it well. It was easy to set up. It looks great in my entertainment center and has a small footprint. I have this connected via the digital coax out to my surround sound receiver and the audio quality is very clean. No distortion, no noise, just a clean audio signal. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to connect Sonos to their existing system.

              I have a full Sonos system, which now has 9 speakers throughout my condo and this Connect was used to integrate two additional non-Sonos speakers. The Connect is so easy to set up and works without a hitch. Highly recommended.

                Works exactly as it should. I use a Sonos "Bridge" as my network gateway to Sonos "Connect" and "Play:5" players, with music stored on my NAS.

                It's so nice to be able to control the selection and playing of all my music via the Sonos application running on an iPad. Even my wife, who is definitely "technically challenged" agrees.

                The Sonos system is SUPERB.

                  Comments about Sonos Connect (Formerly the ZonePlayer 90):

                  Since long time ago, I was looking for a very good and not expensive solution for listening to streaming and the music stored in my computer (in SSD drives). I'm a HiFi enthusiastic and I love to hear my music with the best fidelity that my pockets can afford, so I have invested in very good traditional HiFi systems and components (Such as Arcam, Cambridge Audio, NAD, Acoustic Energy, Marantz, Audioquest, ProJect Debut III, etc.). As an example, let's say my budget can afford a Volvo or Lexus, but not a Ferrari or Rolls Royce. Having said that, my "technical" problem was solved when I discovered "Sooloos" from Meridian (the British high audio and video quality systems vendor), but the "new problem" was the cost. Before falling into a depression, I discovered SONOS and my ears were happy again and my bank account didn't suffer. SONOS sounds incredibly clear, it's very easy to set up and it matches very good with any traditional HiFi audio system, so you can combine the best of both worlds: hi-tech upgrade and the best quality analogue audio. The only problem with my SONOS is: "It is very addictive......"
                  I found SONOS at B&H which is my favorite store in NYC and I try to visit it every time I go to the "Big Apple". The guys have an unbeatable and warm service.
                  Sincerely and best wishes,
