Product Details

Sonos Connect Music Player, Model CONNECT

Previously known as Sonos ZonePlayer 90, the Sonos CONNECT lets you play all the music you want, all over your house, on all the audio equipment you already own — your home theater receiver, stereo system, powered speakers, and more. Just connect the ZP90 to any amplified audio device in any room and it’s instantly part of the wireless Sonos system. To start playing music, one CONNECTr or Sonos Bridge must be connected to the router, then all the rest work wirelessly.

Key Features:

  • Connects to all your favorite audio equipment
    Simply connect the ZP90 to the audio equipment you already own — your home theater receiver, stereo system, powered speakers, and more — and enjoy the music. The digital and analog outputs, connected to your favorite sound system, deliver superior sound to every room. And when it comes to volume control you’ve got a choice: via Sonos or directly on your favorite audio equipment.
  • Best-in-class wireless technology for multi-room music
    The ZP90 brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project. SonosNet 2.0, our latest wireless mesh network technology, provides double the wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. Which means the music gets to all the right rooms — near or far — at exactly the right time.
  • Instant access to endless music
    Sonos liberates the music on your computer and the Internet so you can play it all, all over the house. Wherever there’s a ZP90 (or any other CONNECT), you can listen to your personal collection of music stored on your computer, plus thousands of free Internet radio stations. And Sonos works seamlessly with the most popular music services so you can stream millions of songs and stations from the Internet to the rooms of your choice. You can even connect the ZP90 to your favorite audio source such as an iPod or CD player and listen on all the CONNECTs throughout your house
  • Control it all with your favorite mobile devices…and more
    Wirelessly control all your music and all your CONNECTs with your choice of Sonos Controllers. Got an Android™ smartphone, iPhone®, iPod touch®, or iPad™? Then, simply download one of the free Sonos Controller apps and take control with the mobile device you already have and love. Want a dedicated Controller that everyone in the home can use? Grab the touch screen Sonos Controller 200 and pick a room, find a song and touch play. Got a desktop or laptop? Then use the Sonos Controller for Mac or PC for added control. They all work together seamlessly so mix and match to your heart’s content.
  • New features and music services with automatic updates
    Unlike most other consumer electronic products, the ZP90 and the entire Sonos system keep getting better even after you buy it. With free automatic software updates you’ll always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Just register your system and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available. Simply press one button and your system updates itself.
  • Simple setup
    Setting up your ZP90 is incredibly easy. No technical or wiring expertise required. And no need to break through walls or re-wire your entire house. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and a router to get started. One CONNECT or ZoneBridge in your system must be connected to the router and all the rest will work wirelessly. Add more CONNECTs in more rooms without adding wires.

Features:

Fits into your favorite audio system

  • Connects to a home theater system or external amplifier: Seamlessly integrates your home theater system and other audio devices into your Sonos Multi-Room Music System.

Control it all with your favorite mobile devices & more

  • Integrated, multi-room control: If you have multiple CONNECTs, you can control what music is playing in every room in your house, from anywhere in your house. Sonos Controllers aren’t tied to a specific CONNECT so you can use any Controller to control the music and the volume in all your rooms.
  • Find and play your favorite songs in an instant: Browse or search for songs and stations, choose the music, and control the volume from anywhere in the home.

just now

The Sonos Connect delivers my newly digitized CD collection to my analog amp, and household speaker system, flawlessly. Have it in play for 5-months and am totally satisfied. I do not have a need for playing music from a mobile device (iPhone or iPad), but it plays the music files stored on my NETWORKED hard drive, that I select from the Sonos Program on my computer. After setting up music queue, I am able to shut down the computer and enjoy the sounds.

I pick this product but my specific disapointment is why the core software itself. It is mystifying to me that such a good product does not include a PC 'zone' that would make Sonos the source for any music that I want to play through headphones or speakers hooked up to my computer. I get that this allows Sonos to sell an extra device for the office but this is just weird: You can play any music you have in any room but you can't stream it our of your computer, the place where it's all stored, the place where you install the core software. Instead, I need to maintain a separate soft plalyer with separate playlists, etc. This makes no sense.

I would be keen to find out if someone has found a viable turn-around.

              Comments about Sonos Connect Music Player:

              We Have 2 Connects and a Play 5. The Play 5 sounds better than any single point speaker should. The Connects play through 2 multi zone receivers. In wall and in ceiling speakers sound great as do full range biamped tower speakers run with Yamaha M80/M60 power. I have run the Connect to an outboard Tube Dac (Cal Audio Alpha) with optical and coax. The Connect sounds great in any setup I use it in. The occasional hookup glitch is usually from mismatched updates (phone updated but not the server). Too rare to be a problem. I'd like to see 96/24 support. Even with an outboard Dac that can decode a higher bitrate the Sonos can't pass it. The music library is pretty small too. I have made a smaller folder of "essentials" to share out to the Sonos but it would be nice to share out my entire collection. The software updates come pretty regular and have been from ehh to big upgrades. I really like album art on the lock screen of the phone. The handle on the Play5 is great too, that goes outside sometimes. 2 more Connects for garage and basement theater are coming soon. If only I hadn't bought a soundbar for the office TV a few months before the Playbar (which I've heard...it sounds great). I'm a total Sonos fanboy. Woof.

              Comments about Sonos Connect Music Player:

              Product works and sounds great when it works. Even with the Sonos Connect hard wired to the router it still randomly loses connection. Power interruptions disconnect it completely and it is very hard to reconnect. Usually requires reboot of everything or just plain waiting hours till it suddenly works. Everything else on my network keeps working but the Sonos. The connection process has been dumbed down so much that there is nothing that can be done to trouble shoot the problem. Push button, cross fingers. Very frustrating. It always seems to happen when company is over and you are back to plugging in the Ipod. Maybe if Apple made it, it would be more reliable.

                    Works well to stream my digital music or music services to my audio system. I also use it with another connect and a separate amp/ speakers system and a set of Play 1's when hosting larger parties.
                    Since music can be played only through Sonos controller I suggest following improvements:
                    - ability to change duration of the Crossfade
                    - ability to enable Crossfade on skip to next song

                    Support for Blackberry phones would be really nice - android version works on BB but with occasional hick-ups... I believe that large base of potential customers own the BB.

                      This device easily connects to any open input on a stereo receiver making the system web-enabled to pull in web broadcast music or radio and control selection and volume from any Smart device using your local area network. Great product.
