- Very good quality sound and separation- November 8, 2020
I was an early adopter of Sonos in 2010. Playing throughout the house in multiple rooms, each playing different music when required, and reliably has been the hallmark of all of the products. Making sure the wi fi reached all parts of a big house will always be a challenge but good repeaters can now solve that issue. Most impressive product has been the S5 and Port, with multiple Play Ones close behind. Least impressive is the Sound Bar which is only so-so and even with Play Ones acting as rear/surround has been disappointing. There is still no substitute for a proper AV amp and quality Front, Centre and Surround speakers: Kef and Quad in my case.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Finally FLAC from iPhone!- December 5, 2019
I was frustrated that I could not play FLAC files from iPhone on Sonos Connect [through DragonFly Cobalt DAC]. The Sonos "line in" is actually a misnomer, as it is only a line in for sources that go through the Sonos app. Flac files are not read by the Sonos iPhone app, so there is no way to play FLAC flies on the Connect. The Port with AirPlay 2, however, can use AirPlay from Flac apps such as VOX or FlacBox directly to the Sonos Port. Set-up was pretty easy, took a couple of tries to get the Port recognized, but eventually it worked. I still cannot fathom why the "line in" is so botched&crippled on the Sonos products.
- Integrate and leverage your own stereo system- May 3, 2020
The Port allows you to use SONOS as a source for your own equipment. In my system, I have Sonos speakers nearly everywhere, except for the two preexisting large systems in the family room and back yard... they use a mix of components. With the Port, both of those systems become part of Sonos, complete with app control for source, volume, and include/exclude. Absent the Port, I would never have ventured into Sonos but now, I agree that it's terrific. Wherever you are on the property, upstairs, downstairs, or out in the pool deck, Sonos music is played throughout and it sounds like Disney, only at a higher quality!Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
