Sonos Controller and Player Bundle

by Volker Weber

Sonos has a new offering, and marketing has muddied the waters with SAVE SAVE SAVE statements. Here is an overview with the new bundles in bold letters:

sonos one controller one player

The Controller is the expensive part of the Sonos system. Depending on how many players you buy, you essentially get the Controller marked down from 400 all the way down to 150.

I think the reason for this new offering is the Squeezebox Duet. It also comes in a one controller/one player configuration. It does cost significantly less, but I have no idea if it's up to the task.

Update: Sonos just called and told me the new bundle is unrelated to the Duet. Dang, and I thought it was a pretty good idea. ;-)

The most appropriate thread I could find in the Slim forums was this one which compares functionality of the 2 systems.

What accessories do you need, when you buy the ZP100 with Controller 100 ???

Do you need the cradle or a/c adapter??? Or can you charge the controller with something else included in the delivery???

The controller comes with a power supply. The cradle is just a (very useful) passive docking station. I recommend you buy it, and I'd advise Sonos to finally include it with the controller.
