Sonos BU150: A Multi-Room System That’s Flawless, Flexible and Fun

The reason Sonos works so flawlessly all over the house is because Sonos has designed a complete multi-room music system from the ground up. From the flexibility of the ZonePlayers to the ubiquity of the handheld and desktop Controller, no other company gets multi-room music like Sonos. The Sonos system lets you play the same song in different rooms with perfect synchronicity. Or you can play different songs in different rooms and please everyone in the house.

With Sonos, music lovers have the freedom to use any Controller they want to control what’s playing all over the house, which includes controlling the volume in each and every room. Use the Sonos CR100 controller, or the included Desktop Controller software for your PC, or even use your iPhone (via a free downloadable app in Apple's App Store). And everything about using the Controller, from searching for your favorite songs to creating the perfect playlist, is fun...because that’s the way music should be.

Listen to music from your PC on your patio, or stream unlimited music from many popular music services such as Pandora, Rhapsody, Internet radio, and more. To start playing music, just grab the full-color wireless Controller and simply pick a room, pick a song and hit play. With the Controller in hand you’ll have instant access to your entire music collection, plus thousands of Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services to play all over the house. You can even connect ZonePlayers to your favorite audio source such as an iPod or CD player and listen throughout your house. When you want to play more music in more rooms, just add ZonePlayers and Controllers to your heart’s content.

This Sonos BU150 bundle gives you everything you need to wirelessly play music in two rooms of your house. And with SonosNet’s superior wireless range, no room is out of reach. Just connect the ZonePlayer 90 (ZP90) to your home theater or stereo and place the ZonePlayer 120 (ZP120) with built-in amplifier in any room where you want music. Connect one ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge (sold separately) to your network and all the rest work wirelessly.

Sonos Controller

The Sonos Controller is a wireless, handheld controller with a 3.5" full-color LCD screen that lets you control all your music and all your ZonePlayers from the palm of your hand. Controllers are not tied to a specific ZonePlayer, so you can use any Controller to control the music--and the volume--in any or all rooms. The Controller provides instant access to your personal collection of music files stored on your computer, plus thousands of Internet radio stations and the most popular online music services. Add extra Controllers (sold separately) and give control to all the music lovers in your home.

Sonos ZonePlayer 120 (ZP120)

The Sonos ZonePlayer 120 is amplified, wireless, compact, and convenient. The ZP120’s state-of the-art digital amplifier delivers audiophile-quality sound to any room. And because the amplifier is built in, you won’t need to connect to a stereo to play your music. All you have to do is plug it in, connect your choice of speakers and you've got a room filled with music. And with the ZP120’s superior wireless range, music lovers really can play all the music they love, all over the house. The design of the ZP120 is both compact and cool so you can feel free to hide it away or leave it out for all to see.

Sonos ZonePlayer 90 (ZP90)

The Sonos ZonePlayer 90 lets you play all the music you want, all over your house, on all the audio equipment you already own--your home theater receiver, stereo system, powered speakers, and more. Just connect the ZP90 to any amplified audio device in any room and it's instantly part of the wireless Sonos system. The ZP90's digital and analog outputs deliver superior sound to every room. And with the ZP90's superior wireless range, no room is out of reach. The ZP90 is super-small, so it will fit just about anywhere.

Desktop Controller Software

Sonos Desktop Controller software for PC and Mac is included with every BU130. It offers all the same functionality as the Sonos handheld Controller, and allows you to control your entire system from any computer or laptop in your house.

Best-in-Class Wireless Technology for Multi-Room Music

Sonos brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project. SonosNet 2.0, our latest wireless mesh network technology, provides double the wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. Which means the music gets to all the right rooms--near or far--at exactly the right time.


Now You Can Control Your Sonos with Your iPhone


Watch how easy it is to control Sonos with your iPhone
The Sonos Controller for iPhone is a free application that turns your iPhone (or iPod touch) into a full-fledged Sonos Controller. Plus, it uses the familiar touch-screen interface and fits in your pocket so you can carry it with you all over the house. Best of all, you can download it for free on the App Store in seconds. Just grab your iPhone and simply touch the screen to pick a room, point and flick to pick a song, and then hit play. Grouping zones and searching tracks has never been easier. You can mix and match Controllers (CR100, Desktop Controller and Sonos Controller for iPhone) for maximum flexibility. Or get started with Sonos using the iPhone you already own and one or more ZonePlayers spread throughout your house.

When it comes to browsing through music libraries, searching for songs, viewing album art, or linking and unlinking zones, the Sonos Controller for iPhone makes it all incredibly easy. Thanks to iPhone’s intuitive touch interface, you can control your entire music experience with a touch of a finger. Quickly search for your favorite artists by typing on the virtual keyboard and browse through albums by pointing and flicking.

With Sonos ZonePlayers and any iPhone or iPod touch, you can find and play any song from your personal collection of music stored on your computer, plus thousands of free Internet radio stations via Sonos Radio. And the Sonos Controller for iPhone works seamlessly with the most popular music services so you can stream millions of songs and stations from the Internet to the rooms of your choice.


Sonos' Simple Setup and Automatic Updates Mean "Maintenance-Free" Music

Setting up Sonos is incredibly easy. No technical or wiring expertise required. And no need to break through walls or re-wire your entire house. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and a router to get started. One ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge in your system must be connected to the router and all the rest will work wirelessly. Add more ZonePlayers and Controllers without adding wires.

Unlike most other consumer electronic products, the entire Sonos system keeps getting better even after you buy it. With free automatic software updates you’ll always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Just register your system and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available. Simply press one button and your system updates itself.

Complete Your Sonos Setup with Select Accessories (sold separately)

Want to get the most out of your Sonos system? Add to the BU150 bundle with these accessories (sold separately) to expand your music coverage throughout the home.
  • Sonos ZonePlayer 120--The ZP120’s state-of the-art digital amplifier delivers audiophile-quality sound to any room. The energy-efficient Class D amplifier provides 55W per channel of power with a THD+N <.02% for excellent audio quality playback — without hisses, crackles or hums. And because the amplifier is built in, you won’t need to connect to a stereo to play your music, making it the easiest way to add a room to your Sonos system. Just plug it in, connect to speakers and enjoy.
  • Sonos ZonePlayer 90--Just connect the ZP90 to any amplified audio device in any room and add a room to your Sonos system. The ZP90’s digital and analog outputs deliver superior sound to every room. And with the ZP90’s superior wireless range, no room is out of reach. The ZP90 is super small, so it will fit just about anywhere.
  • Sonos Controller--Add Controllers to your Sonos system to let all the music lovers in your home in on the fun. Just pick a room, pick a song and hit play. Use search to find your favorites, and quickly link and unlink zones to play the same song in every room or different songs in different rooms. Controllers aren’t tied to a specific ZonePlayer, so you can use any Controller to control the music and the volume in any or all rooms. And there’s practically no limit to how many Controllers you can have--one for every room, floor or music lover in your house.
  • Sonos Charging Cradle--The Sonos CC100 Charging Cradle is specially designed to hold your Sonos Controller CR100, and it also doubles as a charger. Mount this cradle on a wall (custom-fit bracket, anchors and screws are included) or place it on a table. Either way, when the Controller is resting in the cradle, you'll know it is safe, secure, and charging -- you can even continue to use your Controller as it regains power.
  • Sonos ZoneBridge--The Sonos ZoneBridge makes setting up an all-wireless Sonos system wonderfully fast…and easy. Although it doesn't play music like a ZonePlayer, it's a cost-effective way to extend your SonosNet network range. Instead of using a ZonePlayer, simply connect the ZoneBridge to your router to instantly activate the SonosNet wireless mesh network. It’s the ideal solution if your house doesn’t have Ethernet wiring or your router is in a room where you don’t want music. And with a two-port Ethernet switch, it also brings standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, DVR, PC, game console, or NAS drive.
  • Sonos SP100 Loudspeakers--The Sonos SP100s are designed to accent the Sonos ZonePlayer 100 both acoustically and aesthetically. The speakers are equipped with 1-inch Teteron dome tweeters that reproduce extended high frequencies, along with 5.5-inch polypropylene copolymer cone woofers that handle the bass response. The combined driver output extends from 75 Hz to 20 kHz, making everything from rock to classical sound crisp and exciting.

    We went from LPs and 8-Tracks, to Cassette Tapes and CDs, and now we live in the age of portable digital music. We walk around with portable digital music players (aka, "the iPod"), use cellular phones that double as digital music players, and even many portable GPS devices have built in MP3 music players. It's no wonder that technology has driven us in the direction of streaming digital music into several rooms of our home, from one central music source. Many manufacturers sell devices to stream music, via an Ethernet or Wi-Fi network, to multiple rooms in your home, and I have tried many of them. I have tested systems by Philips, Logitech, and Roku, but none can compare with the top-shelf Sonos Multi-room Music System. Sonos has been around for a few years now, and they have produced a few different device models. This review is for the fairly new BU150 model.

    This package includes a Sonos self-amplified ZonePlayer 120, a ZonePlayer 90, and a beautiful Sonos controller. If you order this system directly from the Sonos website, they include a free charging cradle for the controller, which is normally sold separately. The entire Sonos music system utilizes a peer-to-peer mesh network, which they call "SonosNet 2.0." This wireless network is completely separated from your typical wireless b/g/n networks in most homes today, so streaming music across the Sonos network will not clog up your regular Wi-Fi network. SonosNet 2.0 also utilizes AES Encryption, so it is extremely secure. The SonosNet mesh network is designed to allow each individual ZonePlayer to work as a wireless repeater, so for every ZonePlayer you add to the system, your wireless range is expanded.

    I found out the hard way that the Sonos has a very serious limitation if you have a large iTunes library (or even several of them) that you intent to use with the Sonos. If you have more that 40,000 tunes in all of your playlists, Sonos will not import them. That sounds like a lot until you realize that according to Sonos one song appearing in four playlists counts as 4 (virtual) tunes!

    I have around 20,000 tunes total in my iTunes Library but racked up ~54,000 virtual tunes across my playlists. The 'solution' to this issue was to delete playlists (aka forgo organization and ease of use) until the total number of virtual tunes was under 40K.

    It is important to note that this limitation is across *all* music libraries that you want to access via Sonos. So, if in you family, your daughter has an iTunes collection, as does your wife as well as your own, you could quickly exceed the capabilities of the Sonos. When I asked a Sonos representative if this was a temporary limitation or one that was going to be fixed in the future the rather indignant answer was "No, we have no plans on fixing this."

    Other, much less expensive options from Roku and SlimMedia (now Logitech) don't have this limitation, so if you have a large iTunes library you probably want to weigh your options.

    Buyer beware.

    I am an engineer so inherently I look for the value proposition in everything I buy. I have owned my Sonos for over a year now and had held off buying it for at least a year because I could not justify spending >$2K to transport music to different areas of the house. I was silly to wait because I absolutely love the system. I bought a flat panel TV and home theatre amplifier with speakers as well as a media center computer that stores all my music and video. After that big expense the cost of the Sonos did not appear to be that bad.
    The connections were a no-brainer and all the units have worked great.
    I have an unpowered unit connected to my 5.1 home theatre, a powered unit driving speakers in the yard, a powered unit driving speakers by the hot tub and an unpowered unit connect to a stero in the game room.
    Having the ethernet ports for hardwire connections in remote rooms has also come in handy when I have work meetings here.
    Storing and accessing the music is quick and easy. If I look to say that there is something that did not meet or exceed my expectation it would be that in order to get the album covers to appear on the Sonos unit, I have to go into MS Media Player and assign a jpg to the music files XML tags manually. But I can't blame Sonos for that.

    Verified Purchase
    I love music. I'm always singing a song or listening to one in my head. And I love all types of music. Rock, classic rock, classical, punk, some rap, opera, drumming, bluegrass, country, hard rock, metal, international, etc. I love it all. But, even with multi-CD players, you can't play them all and it's somewhat cumbersome. I was always jealous of friends who built their house and put in speakers to all the rooms, but my house was pre-owned and was not wired. Running wire to everywhere would require lots of demo; wasn't an option in my mind. Enter Sonos....

    I actually heard about it several years ago and knew immediately it might be the solution to my situation. However, as others have said I was reluctant given the price to buy it. Man, was I stupid. I bought my first bundle earlier this year. I am so in love with this thing that I now have a combination of powered units and unpowered units in the following places: master bedroom, master bathroom, dining room, kitchen, outdoor patio (unit sits in kitchen, ran speaker wires to outdoor speakers), workout-room, family room and home theater. Yes, I have 8 zones. I have my CDs burned to a NAS that Sonos "looks" to. I also subscribe to Napster. I can literally play almost any song you can name, all at the touch of a button. It's like a gigantic, neverending jukebox. I live alone, so I just link all the zones I want to include and the music is just present in every room that I normally spend time in. I also use the alarm clock function on the controller; I wake up to my favortite rock playlist instead of an alarm. It has a sleep function too, so you can drift off to the sounds of your music in your ears. My friend's fight over the controller when I have parties.
