Our take on the Sonos® BU-150 Bundle

by Tara W.
Sonos

Tap into your music collection from anywhere in your home. The Sonos Multi-Room Music System lets you easily access the music stored on your PC, along with a wealth of tunes available from the Internet. This bundle includes two digital music players — a Sonos ZonePlayer 90 and a ZonePlayer 120 — plus one Sonos Controller. Like all Sonos systems, it's a breeze to set up and use, and it offers breakthrough playback flexibility. Best of all, it delivers your music in crisp, clear detail.

Exceptionally easy multi-room music
Connect one of the compact ZonePlayers to your home network or computer, and place the other in a second room for wireless access to all your music. If you use the ZonePlayer 90 in your second room, connect it to a stereo, a pair of powered speakers, or a home theater system. The ZonePlayer 120 houses a built-in 55-watt stereo amplifier, so you won't need to connect it to a traditional audio system — simply hook up a pair of speakers for smooth stereo sound.

Total control in the palm of your hand
Another main attraction of this system is the Sonos Controller, a remote that's set the standard for user-friendly multi-room music control. Equipped with a 3.5" color LCD screen and a scroll wheel, the Controller lets you easily navigate through the playlists and tracks stored on your computer or select an Internet radio station. You can even use this remote to create customized playlists on the fly for individual ZonePlayers, or for playback over your entire Sonos system. The Controller also gives you the ability to mute or adjust the volume of each of your ZonePlayers.

Control your system using an iPhone™ or iPod® touch
You can also use an iPhone or iPod touch to control your Sonos system. A free download from the App Store at apple.com turns your player into a full-fledged Sonos controller. Use your player's touchscreen to control all zones and all music sources in your system.

Compatible with popular music services
The Sonos system works seamlessly with a host of Internet-based digital music services, including Rhapsody®, Pandora®, last.fm™, Napster®, and SIRIUS Internet Radio. Rhapsody offers instant access to millions of songs and ad-free radio stations through your Sonos Controller. SIRIUS Internet Radio gives you access to over 80 channels of programming. Every Sonos system includes free 30-day trials of these two services, so you can start listening the moment you take it out of the box. Pandora and last.fm create customized Internet radio streams just for you — all you have to do is enter the name of your favorite song or artist. And because Sonos connects directly to the Internet for all of these music services, you don't even have to turn on your PC.

Easy system expansion — up to 32 rooms
System expansion is hassle-free. Just add more ZonePlayers anywhere you want to enjoy your music — the Sonos system can accommodate up to 32. And you can listen to the same music through every player in your system — perfect for parties — or select a different playlist for each room, so that each family member can enjoy their favorite music at the same time.

    General Features

    Bundle Contents: The Sonos Digital Music System Bundle 150 includes a ZP120 amplified Zone Player, a ZP90 non-amplified Zone Player and a CR100 Controller. The system also includes the following cables - 5' Ethernet cable, 6' stereo RCA to 3.5mm audio cable and a 3' stereo RCA cable.

    Overview: The Sonos Bundle 150 gives you everything you need to wirelessly play music in two rooms of your house. With SonosNet's superior wireless range, no room is out of reach. Simply 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. Then connect one of the ZonePlayers to your network for complete multi-room audio. To start playing music, use the supplied full-color wireless Controller (CR100) and simply pick a room, pick a song and hit play. With the Controller in hand you'll have instant access to your entire music collection, plus thousands of Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services to play all over the house. When you want to play more music in more rooms, just add ZonePlayers and Controllers (sold separately).

    SonosNet 2.0: Sonos brings great sounding music wirelessly to any room in your house, without a big wiring project. SonosNet 2.0, Sonos' latest wireless mesh network technology, provides double the wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensures synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. Which means the music gets to all the right rooms at exactly the right time.

    Music Compatibility: Sonos liberates the music on your computer and the Internet so you can play it all over your house. You can find and play songs from your personal collection of music stored on your computer, plus thousands of free Internet radio stations from the supplied controller. Sonos works seamlessly with the most popular music services so you can stream millions of songs and stations from the Internet to the rooms of your choice. You can even connect ZonePlayers to your favorite audio source such as an iPod or CD player through an auxiliary input and listen throughout your home. The Sonos Bundle 150 supports the following music sources and types.

    • Audio Formats: Support for compressed MP3, WMA (including purchased Windows Media downloads), AAC (MPEG4), Ogg Vorbis, Audible (format 4), Apple Lossless, Flac (lossless) music files, as well as uncompressed WAV and AIFF files. Native support for 44.1kHz sample rates. Additional support for 48kHz, 32kHz, 24kHz, 22kHz, 16kHz, 11kHz, and 8kHz sample rates. Apple "Fairplay" and WMA Lossless formats not currently supported.

    • Playlists Supported: Rhapsody, iTunes, WinAmp, Windows Media Player, and MusicMatch (.m3u, .pls, .wpl)

    Simple Installation: Setting up the Sonos Bundle 150 is easy. No technical or wiring expertise is required and no need to break through walls or re-wire your entire home. All you need is a high-speed Internet connection and a router to get started. One of the supplied ZonePlayers in the Sonos system must be connected to your router and all the rest will work wirelessly. You can add more ZonePlayers and Controllers without additional wire. You can add up to a total of 32 Zone Players and 32 Controllers to your system.

    Automatic Updates: The entire Sonos system allows for free automatic software updates so you will always have the newest features and music services to enjoy. Simply register the system and Sonos will automatically notify you when software updates are available. By simply pressing one button your system updates itself.

    Zone Player Features

    Zone Player Overview: The Sonos ZP120 Zone Player and ZP90 Zone Player work exclusively with the Sonos Digital Music System. The ZP120 contains a stereo amplifier to drive a pair of speakers. The ZP90 is non-amplified, so it will need to be connected to a separate receiver/amplifier or to a pair of powered speakers. In a multi-room sound system, the first Zone Player is connected to your home network, and each subsequent Zone Player can be wired or completely wireless (except for power and speaker wires).

    Class D-Amplifier: The ZP120's built-in Class-D amplifier produces 55 watts RMS per channel (8 ohms, 20-20kHz, THD+N<0.02%). You can connect 4-ohm speakers rated to accept up to 150 watts or 8-ohm speakers rated up to 75 watts. The unit is equipped with two sets of spring-loaded binding posts.

    Line Inputs/Outputs: The ZP120 and ZP90 contain the following line inputs and outputs.

    • ZP120: The ZP120 has a pair of stereo RCA jacks available for connecting an external music source, such as a CD player or portable music player. The ZP120 also has a mono RCA line output with an automatic crossover for connecting to a dedicated subwoofer output for a powered sub. When adding a subwoofer, the ZP120 automatically adjusts the output to send the low frequencies to the subwoofer and the high frequencies to the speaker.
    • ZP90: The ZP90 also has a pair of stereo RCA jacks available for connecting an external music source, and stereo RCA line outputs for connecting to a home receiver. Both coaxial and optical digital outputs can be found on the ZP90.

    Ethernet Ports: A 2-port switch (10/100Mbps, auto MDI/MDIX) on the rear-panel of each ZonePlayer allows Ethernet devices to connect through SonosNet 2.0. Each ZonePlayer has a two-port Ethernet switch to bring standard Internet connectivity to your set-top box, DVR, PC, game console or NAS drive.

    Controls: The Zone Players only have a mute button and a volume control, both mounted on the front of the units. Between the buttons lies a Zone Player LED status indicator, which flashes when powering up or connecting to the Sonos Digital Music System, and lights solid when powered up and connected to the music system.

    Dual Voltage: The ZP120 is capable of accepting 115/120 Volts AC or 230/240 Volts AC. The voltage switch is located on the rear panel next to the AC power input. The ZP90 can accept 100-240 Volts AC 50/60Hz, but has no voltage switch.

    Zones: You can place a ZP120 or ZP90 Zone Player in each zone where you want to listen to music. The Sonos Digital Music System can accept up to 32 Zone Players and up to 32 CP100 Controllers. With multiple zones, you can play the same song in different rooms, or different songs in different rooms.

    Placement: It is not necessary to place the Zone Player in a visible place in the home. Although the unit has mute and volume controls on the front, it can be fully controlled using a CR100 controller. Typically, the Zone Player is placed in the crawl space in a house, and used to drive in-wall or in-ceiling speakers.

    Range: The transmitting range of the Zone Players' built-in wireless system is approximately 100 feet, depending upon your home's layout. Thick walls, microwave ovens, and the presence of other wireless devices can interfere with or block the wireless network signals of the Sonos Digital Music Signal. When interference occurs, you can relocate the Zone Player, change the wireless channel, or make a wired (Ethernet) connection.

    Desktop Controller Software: The supplied setup disc contains the software for the Desktop Controller, which allows you to control the Sonos Digital Music System from your home computer. It includes easy-to-use wizards for setup and music sharing so the music folders on your hard drive can be shared across all Zone Players. You can also add Internet Radio stations and set preferences for online updates. Once the system is set up, all you need to do is choose your music, choose your zone and press Play. The Desktop Controller is compatible with Windows XP and Vista, as well as Mac OS X (version 10.4 and 10.5) operating systems.

    Sound Settings: From your computer or CR100 controller, you can change the sound settings for each individual Zone Player in the system. Adjustable sound settings include volume, bass, treble, balance, and loudness.

    Music Storage: Your digital music files can be stored on your computer, music server, a network-attached storage (NAS) box, or an external source like a CD player.

    CR100 Controller Features

    Controller Overview: The Sonos CR100 Controller works exclusively with the Sonos Multi-zone Digital Music System, and allows you to control all of your music and all of your zones wirelessly from the palm of your hand.

    Sonosnet 2.0: The controller communicates with the nearest ZP120 or ZP90 Zone player through Sonosnet 2.0, a secure, peer-to-peer wireless mesh network, allowing you to extend the range of the controller to any room in your house, even outside. Because it communicates with the nearest Zone Player, rather than through one distant control point, the system avoids sources of wireless interference. The range of the Sonosnet is 50 to 100 feet, a range similar to that of an 802.11g wireless access point.

    Rechargeable Battery: The CR100 is powered by a built-in, high-capacity Lithium Ion battery. Assuming typical usage, a fully charged battery will last 2 to 5 days. The battery can be recharged by plugging it into the supplied AC adapter for 2 hours. The battery is not removable from the controller.

    Display: The controller features a 3.5" (diagonally measured) full color LCD screen, with a resolution of 240 x 320 pixels, for viewing zone configurations, playlists, and menus, as well as full color album artwork.

    Controls: The CR100 features the following controls:

    • Volume Controls:
      • Volume: A two-way "rocker" switch for adjusting the selected zone's volume up or down.
      • Mute: To temporarily silence the music in a zone, or if held for 3 seconds, silences all Zone Players.
    • Playback Controls:
      • Play/Pause
      • Skip Forward/Fast Forward
      • Previous/Fast Reverse
    • Navigation:
      • Zones: For selecting a zone to play music in, or view the music selections playing in each room. You can also create or modify zone groups to share the same music across zones.
      • Music: For browsing or selecting music; You can select new music to play, manage music queues, access playlists, and change the default settings for a Zone Player or Controller.
      • Back: For returning to the previous screen in the selected menu (zone or music)
      • Scroll Wheel: An "iPod-inspired" circular touch wheel used to navigate through a displayed list on the Controller screen. You can slide your thumb or finger clockwise to scroll down or counter-clockwise to scroll up through the list.
      • Soft Buttons: Three unmarked buttons below the LCD screen; the functionality of each button changes to reflect the available actions for the currently-displayed controller screen. The action for each button appears on the screen directly above each button.
    • Light Sensor: The controller's built-in light sensor (located on the controller's face above the LCD screen) automatically turns on the button backlights based upon the brightness of the environment.

    Scheduled Music: You can use the unit's scheduler to play music at a specific time for a set duration which is great for that 30-minute workout.

    Wake Up Alarm: You can set the unit's alarm and wake up to your favorite music or Internet radio station in one room, or all over the house. Just hit snooze to get a few minutes more sleep.

    Sleep Modes: To save battery power, the controller enters a progressive sleep mode:

    • Light Sleep: The controller will go into a "light" sleep to preserve the battery life when it is unused for a specified period of time. The screen will turn off until motion is detected (by the internal motion sensor) or a button is pressed. You can specify different amounts of time after which the controller will enter the light sleep mode when connected to a power source and when operating in a "wireless" mode.
    • Deep Sleep: The controller will enter a deep sleep when unused for a longer period of time (programmable in the menu). The controller goes through a restart cycle for several seconds when coming out of the deep sleep mode.

    Indicators: During operation, the CR100 controller has several status indicators. The LCD screen indicates the battery charge level and wireless signal strength. An LED on the upper right edge of the controller glows red to indicate low battery, amber while the controller is charging, green when it finishes charging, and goes unlit to indicate the controller is in use and the battery is charged.

    Dimensions

    Dimensions: The Bundle 150 Components have the following dimensions:

    Component Width Height Depth
    ZP90 Zone Player 5.375" 2.9375" 7.205"

    Awesome

    Written By Richard, Westchester NY on Friday, June 26, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I'm a fan of technology and this is one of the best toys I have purchased. Amazingly easy to set up, easy to use, and the sound is great. I set up a 4 zones, basement, yard, living room and playroom. Have both the ZP90 connected to an amp (which is connected to a pair of outdoor speakers) and the ZP120 connected directly to speakers/subwoofer. The ZP120 does a great job in the living room. I pumps out enough power with the added subwoofer that my wife is always asking me to turn it down. Clean crisp sound in a small box (also have the BlueRay connected to the ZP120 via line-in for the better sound). An amp would produce better high end results, but for 90% of the time it is fantastic. I have a ZP90 connected to an amp that runs a couple of outdoor speakers - pumps out 100W/channel - and it does the job. During parties have the Sonos volume at about 60% and its loud enough for about 30 feet from where the speaks are (outdoors).

    Best of all, during parties, can control the whole system from the iPhone app. Just walk around drinking a beer controlling the songs/volume for each zone (and can play a different song at a different volume in every zone).

    Highly recommend this system - but would lean towards the ZP90 with 100W/channel amp and a pair of solid speakers for the best sound both indoor and out.

    Outstanding

    Written By James, Clearwater Florida on Sunday, May 31, 2009
     
    WOW. My wife is a New Yorker. She went nuts when she can listen to a classical station in New York. She can work in the study and listen to her College station in St Louis.

    The music from around the world is way cool. Very simple to setup and the controller is excellent.

    We listen to different stations from different cities in the house on Sunday morning and do NOT wake the kids.

    We connected to the intercom in the house and can have music in every room.

    Simply OUTSTANDING. I just purchased more Zones.

    Fantastic System

    Written By Charles, Chagrin Falls, Oh on Monday, March 16, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a great system!! I purchased the 150 Bundle and a bridge. Within an hour I had the units hooked up as a stand alone unit and one connected to my surround sound system. Minutes later I installed the software on my Mac and the entire system was up and running.

    The remote is a work of art. Even my wife who is not into electronic gagets loves the remote and it's ease of use. Access to music on my mac, itunes, Pandora, and Ipod is only a few strokes away.

    System works as advertised and I would definitely recommend it to anyone.

    Fell in love with SONOS....

    Written By Ryan, Chandler, AZ on Tuesday, February 03, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!

    This is absolutely everything it advertises. The Sonos system was a
    breaze to setup and works perfect! The music possibilities are endless,
    literally. The system works so well it is easy to see why it is worth the
    money. I have 2 controllers, 2 90s and 2 120s and they work seamless.
    Pandora is a dream on this system, you're always surrounded with music. I
    cannot remember an electronic product as advanced as this that worked so
    well. It reads all files on any PC on your network. It sets up its own file
    sharing network automatically and will request sharing access whenever a
    new PC is connected to the network. Amazing simple!

    So the down side:
    If your network is slow or has packet loss issues, you will have problems
    with Sonos as it works very hard to push the data.
    You have to pay for some of the services it offers, but they are economical
    and worth the money.


    That's it... this is superior in all ways and will be hard to beat. I can't wait to
    see a video version to Sonos.... hint hint. You get what you pay for.

    Best Music Server of the Bunch

    Written By Bob, Falls Church, VA on Friday, January 30, 2009
     
    I'm an audiophile so when I wanted to put my CDs on a server and access Pandora and Internet radio stations, two prime considerations were sound quality (must be able to store and play lossless versions of my CDs) and ease-of-use (I prefer the user interface to work like a stereo, not like a computer - and SONOS passes the Spouse Usability Test). The SONOS system handled both of those requirements, and the automated installation procedure and wireless access added to my satisfaction. And storing my music files on a Buffalo LinkStation allows me to run the whole system without having to have a PC on at all times - something the competing Logitech system requires.

    SONOS gets points for putting the music selection device in the remote, including cover art of the music files if you've stored it. Having access to music files, internet radio, Pandora and line-in access to other devices such as my turntable give me all the music sources that I want in one hand-held unit. And sometimes I run it from the PC SONOS controller application. And if I had an iPhone I could run it from there. I'm very very happy with the capabilities and fun I get from the system today.

    Beautiful technnology

    Written By Jerry, Saint Louis, MO on Sunday, January 25, 2009
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Rarely do I found a product that works as advertised and is not qualified with a list of limitations. The SONOS system is expensive but in this case you get what you pay for. I have a nearly fully wired home with Cat5e. I wanted a system that could make use of my pre-wiring but also help me out in areas where no pre-wiring exists. The SONOS system provides both wired and wireless audio distribution and does so with great quality. I absolutely love the iPhone remote application that allows me to send music from iTunes, internet radio, my home theatre, etc. to any room in my house equipped with SONOS.

    Bottom line, this product is an example of perfect design and perfect implementation - what a pleasure! And Crutchfield service adds the cherry on top with proactive support and extremely knowledgeable specialists.

    Sonos System

    Written By Robert, Bentonville, AR. on Monday, November 17, 2008
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    How did I ever survive without this system? I have been searching for a solution to bridge my music library from the family desktop to the many rooms in the house. Carting Ipods from room to room was a pain.
    The Sonos system makes easy work of bridging the music from room to room. The functionality for streaming internet radio and Napster is a great bonus that I had never considered. It identifies local radio stations from your Zip code, but also allows you to easily search the world for other radio stations (I was listening to the radio stations in my original home-town in seconds).
    The remote is functional, but I also picked up an Apple I-touch and downloaded the free Sonos remote application for it. It's cheaper than the Sonos remote and works a lot better due to the touch screen.
    I would recommed this system to anyone with a lovge of music.
    I use the system as the primary source for the entertainment system in my living room and den with two ZP90 Zone Players and to stand alone speakers in the remaining rooms with the ZP120's.

    Best player since sliced bread

    Great player, days and days of music. The napster service is great, listen to
    any song imagineable. Ethernet port acts like a router allowing my tv
    internet access. Great Buy!!

    Many problems, and still worth 5 Stars

    An elegant solution to distributing music around the house, and even to an outbuilding 80' from the house. Almost gave up on the product, though; it took a week to actually get it up and running. Many problems, all computer related, setting up the Sonos system on my iMac. Spent almost five hours on the phone with Sonos technicians figuring out the problem over that week. Frustrating at times, but the support crew were real people and obviously interested in getting the system up and running. Each dealt with me patiently and with real interest, each solving part of what turned out to be a complex problem with my computer, not their product. Have been using Sonos for a week now and love it. Slowly adding CD's onto my computer, having access to them from one source is a treat. Discovering music I forgot I had, and it won't get lost ever again. Highly recommended.

    Highly Recommended, Especially for Retrofits

    Wow. I live in a place with thick plaster walls, where wiring throughout would be a disaster and my wireless N router can barely reach 2 rooms away. I've been all over, and considered the 2nd mortgage it would take to retrofit professionally. I bought 2 controllers, (3) 120s, (1) 90 and (2) bridges - one bridge to connect to my desktop and another to push sound out to the farthest room. These power 2 speakers in the kitchen (120), dining room (120) and living room (120), and connect to my HT receiver in the den (90). I've got a full signal everywhere, great sound flowing from my digital collection and very slick looking devices. I combined the 120s with Mirage OmniSats, which are great. Setup is a breeze; everything auto updates.

    I'm extremely pleased with my Sonos System. I had been looking for a home music system for several months and was disappointed at what I was finding until I found the Sonos System. The other systems I was looking at would have involved rewiring my home, had awkward interfaces to my music stored on my hard drive and was going to cost twice as much! I've had the Sonos System now for a month and enjoyed listening to music either stored in my hard drive or thru the internet using Rapsody. I've even set up playlists for my daughter-in-law and my mother!
