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.

It was extremely easy to set up. Once it was set up and directed to the lossless iTunes ALAC files on the local NAS it neatly integrated my large digital music library with my hifi system.
There is hardly any noticeable difference in its sound quality compared to my Rotel RCD-1520 CD player connected to a Rotel RA-1520 with Paradigm Monitor 7 speakers.

I rate Sonos's customer service highly; they are quick to respond and helpful when it comes to resolving issues.

The only two things that bug me about this product are that it is 'a' black and 'b' Sonos can't currently export playlists.
It is also slightly overpriced in New Zealand when compared to overseas markets.

I am really looking forward to Sonos's next software update which makes creating and editing playlists a breeze, hint, hint.

In conclusion I think Sonos is a great system which I hope is only going to get better with new software updates and new innovative home audio integration products.

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.

        Had to hardwire bridge and pc

        By Bill Bowen

        from Norwalk, CT

        About Me Pro Audio / DJ, Tech Savvy

        Pros

        • Clear Sound

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about Sonos Connect Music Player:

            While I love the network design and intent of the Sonos bridge and it's speakers, I had to resort to hardwiring with ethernet cables the bridge, and the pc containing my music library.

            Initially I used a wireless laptop with my music library on it. With the laptop, my wireless router, the bridge and the Play5 all in the same room, I continued to have drops. So I connected a desktop to my wireless router with an ethernet cable, and that ran the Sonos software and my library from the hardwired desktop. This helped a little.

            Next I read that drops can be caused by interference of having the bridge too close to the router. I thought this was dumb, it made sense to have the bridge near the router, so I used the ethernet port to hardwire the bridge directly into my wireless router. This finally seemed to make everything in the house work much better.

            I am a huge fan of the product. And the software that imports from iTunes works really well. My 5 year old has it down. But it didn't work for me as advertised. The speakers are still wireless, but the backend is all connected directly to my router. So it didn't work as I had hoped, but it worked.

            • Whole Home Solution

            Comments about Sonos Connect Music Player:

            When I purchased my home in 2011 it came equipped with a whole home audio system which included a media server that allowed ripping CD's to its internal hard drive, and then be played through two zones of the whole home audio system (it was a two zone system and could play two songs to two different zones at the same time).

            To me the system was very "clunky" to use, and I rarely used it, and my wife who is not tech savvy never used it. She would always ask me to set it up to play music for her.

            My whole home audio system has 12 zones, i.e. there is a set of speakers in 12 rooms of the house. Now, I can play music from my iTunes library, or Internet Radio in any of the rooms.

            I purchased two Sonos Connects to replace the two zone media server. These connect to the whole home audio system with the analog audio outputs on the back of Sonos Connect units.

            One Connect is for my wife's use, and the other one is for my use. So we use these a little different that is normal, instead of dedicating a Sonos unit to a room, each unit is dedicated to a person. Either Sonos Connect can be punched up in any of the 12 rooms.

            I have my iTunes library on a Network Attached Storage unit, not my computer. I like that the Sonos Connects can play music from my NAS, and do not need a computer on or active for it to function. I just use the Sonos control app on my computer, iPhone, or iPad to control the Sonos Connects, but these devices are just controllers for the system. Once a playlist is set up, the Sonos Connect will continue playing without need of a computer or other device since it is playing from my NAS.

            There is no comparison to the ease of use of the apps to control the Sonos Connects compared with the clunky interface that the media server I previously had, which was rarely used. That the Sonos Connects are used daily is a testament to its ease of use.

                      Comments about Sonos Connect Music Player:

                      My house has been wired for centralized sound for year, but my old receiver's clunky RF remote and lack of flexibility of the device was frustrating. Now I have my Sonos in the A/V closet in the basement connected to my network and wired via the existing cabling and I have all the control I want. Even more satisfying is the fact that all my devices (iOS, Droid, Windows) have the same interface look and feel!!
                      I'll be adding more Sonos units (Already ordered a Sonos Amp) to the same closet to add independant music to every wired room and get the versions with speakers to those rooms that don't. Great product, sound quality, and eas of set up and use. Love my Sonos!!

                        Sonos connect was the perfect solution to our needs -- namely to drive music into our existing surround sound system in our home (existing receiver, ceiling speakers, etc.). With sonos, i am able to access music from iphone source in every room. Forgot how important music is to one's happiness. Forgot to mention....the price/value is exceptional and the ease of installation is equally awesome. Sonos rocks!!!!
