superior audio to any room. Just connect the ZP120 your favorite pair of speakers,
large or small, and fill any room in your house with unlimited songs and stations.

- Superior sound with a powerful digital amplifier: The ZP120’s
state-of the-art digital amplifier delivers audiophile-quality sound to any
room. The energy-efficient Class D amplifier provides 55W per channel of power
with a THD+N <.02% for excellent audio quality playback — without hisses,
crackles or hums. And because the amplifier is built in, you won’t need to
connect to a stereo to play your music. Just plug it in, connect to speakers
- Best-in-class wireless technology for multi-room music: The
ZP120 brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without

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.

on the Internet, your computer and more, so you can wirelessly play it all
over the home. Wherever there’s a ZP120 (or any other Connect:Amp), you can
tune in to 100,000 Internet radio stations, shows and podcasts and stream
millions of songs and stations from the most popular online music services.
Plus, you can play your entire personal music library, like iTunes®, in any
or every room. You can even connect to your favorite audio source, such as
an Apple AirPort Express®, CD player or TV and listen on all the Connect:Amps
throughout your home.
- Control it all with your favorite mobile devices…and more:
Wirelessly control all your music and all your Connect:Amps 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.
- Simple setup and expansion: Setting up your ZP120 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:Amps or Connect:Amps in
your system must be connected to the router and all the rest will work wirelessly.
