This is my fourth connect and this one worked as flawlessly as the other 3. Sonos products are great
Just what I was looking for...
Great product...this is my second Connect that I have in my network. Very easy setup and operation. I really like the ability to play different audio in multiple rooms simultaneously.
Well designed but the high-res music clientele som
It is a well thought out product, for the most part. Setup was easy, although they're marketing higher resolution streaming services recently as they recognize this is a growing market. Their forum is lit up with customer comments about wanting the flexibility to play higher resolution files than just mp3 quality. So they signed on Deezer Elite, which is the only reason I finally got comfortable buying the Connect. It proved difficult to set up Deezer and get it to work on the Sonos app because nowhere in the instructions did it indicate you needed to do that on your laptop vs my iPad mini or my iPhone...figured it out on my own after a while.
It's white or white...sticks out pretty good in my living room. Black would be a nice option, like on the Sonos player I purchased at the same time.
I use my Connect to pump digital files to my external DAC (digital to analog converter) and send that analog signal to an amplifier that powers good quality headphones. The Deezer Elite provides 16bit/44Hz files (think CD's ripped at their actual file size/resolution...not a compressed format where details are lost) to the Connect...what I had been waiting for. Beats is 320kbps and while that's OK, it's not great with higher quality equipment.
Anyhoo...I'm glad I purchased the Connect but I think Sonos is slow to respond to a market that is going, and when there is a flood of competition on their doorstep. The Deezer Elite option is only reason I bought a Sonos.

Sonos is awesome.
Amazing addition to the existing Sonos system. Installation is so simple, as is with all their products, that some people may find it difficult.
