"Ease of set-up / functionality make this system great."4.0 starson by bremersj
Pros: Ease of set-up
Music control: easy to import, search, select, etc.
Functionality: you can play different music in each zone
Cons: Expensive: each module, including the controller, costs between $320 and $450. If you want to add external speakers, you'll pay even more.
Summary: When installing any device that interacts with my home network, I have come to anticipate a significant amount of troubleshooting. Not so with Sonos. After installing the software on my laptop, it ran me through simple instructions, and I didn't run into any hiccups. When I later installed the software on my desktop, there was even less work to do. Adding more zones is a snap.
The user interface is easy to learn as it seems to mirror the interface on similar devices, such as iTunes and numerous smart phones. Searching a large music library is simple, as long as you have kept your tags - album, artist, genre, etc. - well maintained.
Adding internet radio was easy as well. I instantly found my local radio stations through Sonos' simple-to-use radio search functions. You can search for local radios, national radio, by station, by show, by shows playing now, or shows that will be playing soon - it even tells you how long you'll have to wait for your show to come on.
A feature I didn't realize I would like so much is the one touch "group zones" function. By grouping zones it will play the same music / station in every zone. I loved the fact that I wouldn't miss out on the radio program just because I ran downstairs for a few minutes.
I haven't had the system long enough evaluate durability or potential bugs.
Thanks for your submission!
