Sonos is a dream come true. The Play:5 is Great <> WHAT IS SONOS?Sonos is a wireless speaker system that streams music from your COMPUTER HARD DISK (such as your iTunes library) or from the INTERNET (such as internet radio, Pandora or most anything else) directly to Sonos Speakers. You CHOOSE that music on the fly using the Sonos iPhone or Android apps (or others). With Sonos, such music does not need to stream THROUGH your phone. You use the phone just for the purpose of making your choices. (It’s the controller not the streamer, unless you want it to be)Sonos is special because of the extraordinary range of music available, the intuitive phone app interface which so simply controls every aspect of the experience, the sound quality, the whole home flexibility, the ease of setup and installation, and the benefits of doing all this without needing to stream from the phone.All you need to get started is one Sonos speaker (like the Play1, Play3, Play5 or Playbar) and possibly one Sonos Bridge…

Genius…Pure Genius! Just got the S5 about an hour ago. Setup couldn’t be easier. Step 1 – connect the power cord to an power outlet. Step 2 – hit the Mute and + button to get the S5 added as a new zone, Step 3 – hmmm….I don’t think there is one. Just hit play and enjoy pure bliss.This is my 4th Zone player (see my other gushing review of the Sonos system on the Sonos bundle page), and anytime my wife asks, “how many of these white boxes you really need?”, the answer is always “one more”.Portability is the key feature of S5. Moving it from Kitchen to backdeck is just a matter of unplugging the power cord and replugging at the new location. It’s all in one box. And the sound quality is not bad either. With all 4 zone players on party mode – some connected to very expensive Klipsch towers – I have ran around to compare the sound quality at various locations. The verdict – this little guy stacks up nicely against the big boys.And the iPhone controller is not too shabby…

As Advertised! I just purchased the s5 with a zone bridge and the CR200. The combination is absolutely amazing. Installation was easy and operation is intuitive. There is plenty out there on how these things work, so I won’t go into details on that. But I do have two observations to share:1) In addition to the s5, I also picked up a NAS drive so that I could stream my 5000+ track mp3 library. After all, streaming my collection with a touch screen remote was one of the main reason I looked at Sonos in the first place. But, after setting Sonos up I decided to give Napster a try. The Napster/Sonos combination gives you access to 8 million tracks on demand. For example, Napster has over 60 Bob Dylan albums, which is pretty much his whole discography. If you want to sample the latest (obscure) music, Napster also has most of the albums Pitchfork reviewed this week–pretty neat.So, despite my deep investment in my personal mp3 collection, it only took me a couple of…
