Sonos components can each be bought separately, but to obtain better value it is best to start off with a bundle. The reasonable bundle is 150, which has one ZP120, one ZP90, and one controller. Sonos also contain a free controller charging cradle with each bundle. This choice will set you back a shade under $1,000. Sonos also present similar bundle with a set of their SP100 bookshelf loudspeakers included for $1149.
If you want speakers but as just about any monitors will work with system, you may look for better value somewhere else. It is possible to obtain started with Sonos for less, mainly if you already own an iPhone or iPod Touch, in which case it could make sense to purchase ZonePlayers and utilize free Sonos Controller application that will turn these devices into completely featured wireless controllers.
With an 8GB Touch estimate over $200, you may think investing in one of these as an extra to devoted controller, though this arrangement will work best for those who live alone or do not mind leaving their iPod behind when they go out. The other choice is to control your Sonos zones with Desktop Controller software for PC and Mac added with each ZonePlayer. This surely lowers Sonos' major price barrier, but only by sacrificing key attraction of being able to control system from somewhere within 150 feet or so of a ZonePlayer.
If non-amplified ZP90 is not very helpful, a second bundle is available. The 120 bundle contains two ZP120 ZonePlayers, one controller and a free charging cradle and costs $1,199. It can be upgraded to add two pairs of speakers for $1,499.
It charges more money, but Sonos is lots of tools. With its multi room system, company has broken home entertainment mold. It will be no wonder to see other companies following in its footsteps with competing included system over next some years. But for now, Sonos is there. If you want what it presents and you can afford it then Sonos multi room music system does precisely what it says on box.
