As the owner of 4 S5's and 3 zoneplayers and a zonebridge I am very familar with Sonos products and the system itself. If you are new to Sonos and are looking to get into the system then the Sonos bundle is the way to go because you save money and it comes with a CR200 which is a very capable remote for the Sonos system. But if you are looking to buy some S5's or you somehow pieced your Sonos system together like myself then buying the CR200 stand alone is just not a good value for the dollar. You could spend 229 dollars on a 8gb Ipod touch and have all the functionality of the CR200 and then some. And what is confusing is the application for the Ipad is actually the best remote for the system hands down. If you are going to spend 350 dollars for the CR200 you actually come out better if you just spend a hundred dollars more and get an Ipad. Now here is why I think the Ipod is a better controller. Not only will it do everything the CR200 will do it is also an Ipod which means it does so many other things for you. Example. I have my Sonos and I pay the yearly subscription to Napster. I download the Napster app on my Ipod touch and I can save albums off line. So now I go to a party at the beach or the park and I bring my S5 and my Ipod touch. I basically have access to my Music through my Napster app and my remote on the same device. And I saved over a hundred dollars. Unless Sonos comes up with some functionality that only the remote has that would be strong enough to justify the extra 130 dollars it just doesnt make sense to by the CR200 as a stand alone product. And if you already have a Ipod touch or an Iphone you just saved 350 dollars. And right now you can go on Apple.com and get a refurished old generation Ipod touch for 149.00 dollars. Something to think about.

Been using my CR200 for about 3 weeks and it has been a joy.

Compared to the original CR100 (which itself seemed fabulous when first received) the CR200 is from a different planet. It's much smaller, lighter, and the screen is bigger and brighter. I am not sure I would pay to upgrade for those benefits alone however.

The real advance is in the search functionality. Gone is the ipod style scroll-wheel with the tedious onscreen keyboard and in is a full touch sensitive on screen keyboard. Once you get used to it (it takes a little practice) the difference is night and day. If you have a large music collection, or especially if you use Napster or Rhapsody, searching using the CR200 is a joyous experience. Not only is the input vastly quicker now that you can type, but the search itself is predictive such that when you type "depe", for example, Depeche Mode will already be on screen vying for your attention with DePedro. The combination of vastly faster typing combined with the improved search makes the search experience on the old CR100 feel like wading through cement in comparison.

Rhapsody plus the CR200 really is a wondrous thing, it really makes searching for music a joyful experience. I frequently have to stop myself squealing with delight.

So, if the CR200 vs. CR100 = a no brainer, how about vs. an iPod touch or iPhone? My experience using the Ipod application is limited to about 5 minutes. My reasons for preferring the CR200 were twofold: 1. I really value the speed of the search experience - having to wake up my iPod, load the app etc was a trifle unappealing.

There's not a better system than the Sonos. I bought into the Sonos system about 3 years ago. I can't say enough good things about it. I've effortlessly added several new zones. With all that said, I upgraded to the new CR200 controller in December 2009. The new touch screen controller is an excellent improvement over the original controller; however I have had multiple problems with the controller and am now waiting for my 3rd replacement. The good news is that Sonos replaced the units at no charge and hopefully my next unit will work well. The mechanics are excellent and I would give it five stars if it wasn't for the defective units.

UPDATE 4/12: Sonos announced they will discontinue selling controllers effective 6/1/12. They've decided the future is the Sonos app on devices that can cost a lot less. I guess if you're considering buying this, it's decision time. I've been satisfied with my 2+ years of use, so no change in my review below.
In 2 years, we haven't had a single problem with the CR200. It has been handled and mishandled by a family with young kids. The battery still holds a long charge. This is a solid, chunky remote. So for functionality and durability, I have no complaints.

But when we wanted a second controller, we decided to get an Ipod Touch Apple iPod touch 8GB (4th Generation) - Black - Current Version instead of another CR200. For about $150 less than the CR200, you get the ability to store & play media, take pictures, access the internet, use email, play games, etc. We already had the Sonos app loaded on an Iphone and Ipad, so were very comfortable with the app. The only downside to the Ipod Touch: 1)Because we have kids, we have our Ipod locked with a password so they can't access the internet. So this means an extra few seconds and keystrokes to get to and start the Sonos app. Not really a big deal. 2)We bought a heavy duty Otterbox case Otterbox Defender Series Case for iPod touch 4th Gen (Black Plastic/Black Silicone)to protect it and a CableJive Dock Stubz
