Product Description

Sonos ZonePlayer ZP80

From the Manufacturer

For those looking for a simple, powerful, and stylish way to play all your favorite music, all over your house, here's the answer: the Sonos ZonePlayer 80 (ZP80), which is part of the complete Sonos Digital Music System. With the ZP80 you can wirelessly stream the music you have stored on your PC or Mac to your home audio equipment -- your home theater receiver, stereo system, powered speakers, and more. Just connect a ZP80 to any amplified audio device in any room, and that device is instantly and seamlessly part of a wireless, multi-room digital music system. You can even play the same song in different rooms or different songs in different rooms.

With optical and coax digital outputs -- as well as analog RCA inputs and outputs -- the ZP80 makes all the right connections. View larger.


The ZP80 is designed to be a part of a complete Sonos Digital Music System. Setup is easy, too. See how it works.

...or the home theater system. View larger.
With up to 32 ZP80s set up in your home, you can use the full-color Sonos Controller to wirelessly control all those devices from the palm of your hand. Sonos liberates the digital music that's stored on your PC, Mac or network attached storage (NAS) box and wirelessly streams it to any ZonePlayer in any room. You can access music stored on up to 16 devices on your home network, plus Internet radio, subscriptions to online audio services like Rhapsody and Audible.com, and even music coming from an external audio source, like your favorite CD player.

You can also use a ZP80 to retrofit a conventional multi-room audio system with home-run speakers or as a wireless extender to increase the wireless range of your Sonos system. No matter where or how you use the amazingly compact ZP80, the digital and analog outputs will deliver superior sound to every room. And because it's designed to minimize noise and distortion, the music you hear will sound virtually identical to the original.

The ZP80 features optical and coax digital outputs for superior audio quality, so it's ready to connect to your high-end home theater or stereo system. There's even an analog audio input for connecting a CD or MP3 player directly to the ZP80, and you can listen to that music on all the other ZonePlayers in your house.

Sonos In Depth
The ZP80 is just one part of a complete Sonos Digital Music System. To make your system complete, you'll also need the Sonos Controller. With a wireless Sonos Controller in hand, you'll have instant access to all your digital music, plus Internet radio, subscriptions to online audio services, and even music from your favorite CD or MP3 player. Use the Sonos Controller to access your entire digital music collection and Internet radio from the palm of your hand. Turn off the upstairs music while you're downstairs. Change the song in the kitchen from the den. The Controller's full-color 3.5-inch screen lets you see album art, browse playlists, get detailed track info, and more. To start listening, just pick a room, pick a song, and hit play. The Controller also allows you to queue the right tunes for the right moment; you can build, edit, and save playlists right from the palm of your hand.

With Sonos ZonePlayers in the rooms of your choice, you can play the same song in different rooms, or different songs in different rooms. As mentioned, you can have up to 32 Sonos ZonePlayers throughout your house -- from the bedroom to the backyard. Connect your first ZonePlayer to your router and all the others work wirelessly. Choose between the ZP80 featured on this page, which connects directly to your home theater or stereo, or the ZP100, which features its own built-in amplifier. Or better yet, choose both for the ultimate in multi-room music.

If you choose to extend your system with a ZP100 you can use your own speakers with it, or connect a pair of Sonos SP100 Loudspeakers, which are aesthetically and acoustically designed to look great with your Sonos Digital Music System.

If you're just getting started with your Sonos system, you'll want to check out Sonos' ZP80 and ZP100 Digital Music System Bundles, which combine two ZP80 or ZP100 units respectively with a Sonos Controller. The bundles offer an easy, economical way to get in on the Sonos action. Then, when you're ready to expand you can purchase a ZP80 or ZP100 for more rooms in your home.

Sonos Setup
You don't need to be a professional installer to set up a Sonos system, or a technical wizard to use it. Sonos was designed to work right out of the box. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and a router to get started. Then, unpack your components, lay them out in your home, and the result will be music to your ears.

I was impressed with the sound quality and ease of use.
Fred J. Aebli
It may be more expensive than some of the other brands that are around to achieve the same thing but its efficiency and simplicity is worth squillions.

Sound quality is excellent (obviously the speakers make a difference, but the amplifier in the Sonos Player is very good for the size).

Great add-on device to my music system, bringing internet music and digital music from my computer to my theater system. It seems expensive for for merely converting wifi radio frequency to RCA inputs to the home theater system. Especially when I realized I needed to buy another bridge device to connect this unit to the home network. But it is simple to install and use. It is unobtrusive and clean.

I have never had a more simple setup of a wireless device. Sonos has made it so easy. We got it setup in no time and it is rock solid even through many walls. This is a little expensive, but compared to the weak performance of the Roku system and the expense of hard wiring from a central distribution system, I would put Sonos in again in a heart beat!!

Sound quality is excellent (obviously the speakers make a difference, but the amplifier in the Sonos Player is very good for the size).

I have to say I'm not normally one to give reveiws of products but the Sonos system is quite simply the most fantastic piece of technology I have ever had the pleasure to come across. It is so simple to set up and so effective. It may be more expensive than some of the other brands that are around to achieve the same thing but its efficiency and simplicity is worth squillions. If you are dithering about this one just bite the bullet and go for it - you won't regret it.

I use these with various powered speakers or standard speakers connected to amps in several "zones" at home. Try them with the auidoengine A2 speakers in smaller rooms for a small package that over delivers on sound quality.

Easy to set up, great way to distribute music throughout the home, easy to control with the wireless remotes (sold separately).

I have been using the Sonos system for about six months and think it is outstanding. Before using the Sonos I tried to use a low cost Linksys system and had a horrible experience. If you have more than a hundred or so tracks, these other systems are completely impractical. I use the Sonos with both my own MP3's that I keep on a NAS device, and with the Rhapsody service. Both work great. The only significant issue that I have is that it can be hard to find a particular track when you have thousands of tracks. Rhapsody has tens or hundreds of thousands of tracks. You have to guess the Genre right, and you have to scroll through a lot of artists. Sonos really needs to add a Search by name capability.
