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

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.

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.

Add extra Controllers (sold separately) and give control to all the music lovers in your home.

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 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.

Which means the music gets to all the right rooms--near or far--at exactly the right time.

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.

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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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.
