"Impressive Streaming Audio Solution!"4.5 starson by luolong
Pros: Very Cool Controller And Easy To Set-Up And Operate
Cons: The System Is A Little Pricey
Summary: I received my Sonos introductory bundle from Amazon on Friday, set it up in about three hours, and impressed my friends with it during a dinner party on Saturday with music in the living room and out on the patio. While it is not cheap, it works flawlessly. I have my music stored on a Buffalo Technology LinkStation Network Storage Center (HD-H120LAN), which is connected to my Linksys router (WRT54GS). I configured the first ZP100 ZonePlayer via the wired Ethernet connection that was plugged into of the WRT54GS router ports. After configuring it, I then disconnected the wire and connected the ZonePlayer to my wireless network via a Linksys Ethernet Bridge (WET54G V1.0). With the first ZonePlayer working on my wireless network, I moved it from my home office to the living room, and quickly set-up the second ZonePlayer player that came in the introductory bundle. I hooked this second ZonePlayer up to the speakers on my patio. As I have both a desktop and a laptop at the house, I installed the Sonos desktop controller software on both computers so that I can control the system and rip additional CDs to my Buffalo LinkStation from either computer. The Sonos system works great, and my new wife can operate it with no problems so she loves it too.
