Heads up!Welcome to this article from the Crutchfield archives. Have fun reading it, but be aware that the information may be outdated and links may be broken.
Keeping it simple
Russ is a senior IT specialist here at Crutchfield. He grapples with complex issues daily. But when it came to multi-room audio, he wanted to keep it simple for his family. That’s why he chose Sonos.
Russ recently gave us a tour of his home to show how Sonos made music an integral part of his family’s life.Sonos’ smartphone and tablet control apps are super easy to use. “Everyone can listen to their own music in their own space,” Russ says.
PLAYBAR and SUB in the family room
Russ uses a PLAYBAR and SUB for home theater sound. “When I first started using Sonos, I didn’t think I’d be swapping out my home theater setup for a PLAYBAR and SUB. But it just made sense to integrate all of our speakers into the Sonos ecosystem.”
PLAYBAR for movies and music
Russ originally purchased the PLAYBAR because it puts out great movie and TV sound. But he also uses it without the TV on to enjoy music streamed from his smartphone.
The slender SUB
Because it’s wireless, Russ had the option of placing the SUB anywhere in the room. Its innovative upright design hugs the wall, keeping it out of the way.
Cooking with the PLAY:5
Russ found the PLAY:5 the ideal size for the kitchen counter. “[It] has big sound that really fills our open kitchen,” he says, “even with pots and pans rattling around.”
Since we talked to Russ, Sonos has introduced the all-new, redesigned PLAY:5 that delivers even better sound for large spaces.
Playtime with a PLAY:1
For Russ’ family, the compact PLAY:1 speakers (inset) are great for bedroom night stands. Russ’ daughter can enjoy kid-friendly music in her room while Russ listens to Spotify® through a Sonos speaker in another
Outdoor speakers powered by a CONNECT:AMP
Russ installed some Polk Audio outdoor speakers under the eaves of his garage. He uses a Sonos CONNECT:AMP to power them, so they’re tied into the Sonos wireless network. Russ can choose to listen to whatever he wants when he’s working outside.
