I have been using SONOS products for over 5 years now slowly increasing my inventory of devices. Currently our house has several play 3's, a couple play 1's, a play 5 and now the CONNECT. From my first experience with the SONOS system I have been impressed with how easy it is to use and how flexible it allows us to be with our music collections. Over the years, the SONOS software has only gotten better.
I bought the CONNECT for use in our hopefully soon to be home theater system. Until that happens, it is attached to an amplified GENELEC speaker system and the combo sounds awesome. I also love the ability to pipe my own source into the CONNECT and control it through the SONOS app. The CONNECT is managed like any of the other SONOS components which makes for a seamless experience.

I purchased this system as a gift for a family member. They had experienced how wonderful the Sonos music system was in my home and always commented on how amazing the sound quality was and how easy the system was to use. I continue to add speakers in additional areas of my own home with perfect results. I couldn't be happier. Just waiting for Sonos to produce outdoor speakers!

For the past 4 years I've had a blended whole house audio system with 3 Sonos Connects as Audio sources and an HTD whole house system (controller, amps, keypads in each room) driving audio. Overtime I've continue to add Sonos Connect Amps to add to my system as my needs expanded to new spaces. In my opinion, Sonos is unmatched in terms of the flexibility to expand a whole house system. Plus I find the components simple, straight-forward and reliable. We now have 15 music zones controlled through a combination of Sonos Connects, Sonos Connect Amps and a Clare Controls Amp 1640. It's pretty much a flawless system in my geeky, gear head view. My wife differs a bit.
In my wife's view, she liked the keypads in every room vs going to the iPhone or ipad to turn on or off music or raise or lower volume. She also liked that keypads could more quickly enable playing the same source in different rooms. She knows how to use Sonos well, but just doesn't want to find or carry her phone around with her to adjust volume or group rooms. She has a point. I yearn for the day that Sonos can be controlled by Echo. "Echo play my Spofity Happy Day playlist is Sonos zones Kitchen, Family Room and Master Bedroom" or "Echo lower Sonos volume in Master Bedroom." Echo Dot makes this a possibility.
