Customer Reviews for Sonos CONNECT Wireless HiFi Player (Formerly ZP90)
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.
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.
I would be keen to find out if someone has found a viable turn-around.
1) You need a sonos bridge before you do anything.
2)The sonos software as well as the app (tablet, smartphone etc...) are not music management programms but mere controllers. (For music management, I would suggest Jriver Media Center. Okay it is not free but it is awesome and after a 30 day free trial you will be happy to part with you hard earned cash).
One gripe I have Sonos currently supports CD-quality streaming but not 192kHz/24-bit music.
