Review of the Sonos Bundle 250
Ever wanted to stream music around your home and have different much playing in each room – well the Sonos Bundle 250 can do it – at a price.
I have known about the Sonos kit for quite a while now – it’s one of those things that you look at from a far and really want, but know it will cost you an arm and a leg. Actually it is not as expensive as you might think, and so when I was given the opportunity to borrow some kit from Sonos I jumped at the chance.
In order to help to review the Sonos Bundle 250, Sonos were kind enough to loan us a ZoneBridge and also a pair of SP100 loudspeakers.
Here is how Sonos describe the Bundle 250:
The Sonos Bundle 250 gives you everything you need to wirelessly play music in two rooms of your house. It includes two Sonos ZonePlayers (ZP90 and ZP120 models) and the Sonos Controller 200 for instant control from the palm of your hand. Simply connect the ZP90 to your home theater or stereo to bring music to the audio equipment you already have. And, place the amplified ZP120 in any room you desire and attach to your favorite pair of speakers. To start playing music, one ZonePlayer or ZoneBridge (sold separately) must be connected to the router, then all the rest work wirelessly. For the ultimate in convenience, choose the Sonos Bundle 250 with Loudspeakers and you’ll also have a pair of powerful bookshelf speakers to attach to your ZP120.
WHATS IN THE BOXES?
Here is what you get in each box:
The box contained the ZoneBridge, a manual, cable and power supply.
Here is how Sonos describe the ZoneBridge:
The Sonos ZoneBridge™ makes setting up your Sonos system super fast and easy. It’s the ideal solution if your house doesn’t have Ethernet wiring or your router is in a room where you don’t want music. Just connect the ZoneBridge to your broadband router to instantly activate the SonosNet wireless mesh network. Now all ZonePlayers and Controllers will work wirelessly, anywhere in your house. The ZoneBridge can also be used to extend the range of your Sonos system and expand the Controller’s wireless coverage.
Setting up and using the ZoneBridge was very easy.
