Best Multi-Room System up to £500 2014
The Sonos Connect (formerly ZP90) Zoneplayer can be used as a stand alone music player, or can be linked into other Sonos kit to create a multi room music system.
Put simply, it's a device that lets you stream music from your PC or the internet directly into your sound system. Just plug the Connect into the auxiliary inputs on your stereo or home cinema system and enjoy sound straight away.
Getting set up is easy - wire one of the ZonePlayer's directly into your router using the supplied ethernet cable, or if the router is too far from where you want your music, connect directly to your home Wi-Fi instead which will enable you to stream wirelessly.
Once a single unit is connected, all the other units, including your Controller and all other ZonePlayers, can link wirelessly to your router, leaving the rest of the system totally wireless.
Install the supplied Sonos Desktop Controller onto your computer and you will be taken through the easy to follow set up process - choose what music you want to share, whether it be stored on any of your network devices or on the internet, and start listening straight away.
The Sonos Connect ZonePlayer is designed to be plugged into an existing music system, such as your stereo, radio or home cinema system.
