Sonos iPad Controller

The new Sonos Controller made it to my iPad. I guess this update will make the iPad my preferred tool for enjoying my music library. The SovietPod probably will stay in it´s cradle – and might get pregnant again.

Pregnant Sonos Controller

This is a pregnant Sonos controller. She left home today. The guys at Sonos will take care of her. Let´s see if we receive a lot of little controllers in return.


Looks very similar to my playlist. Seems not only vowe is stalking me.

Sonos Updates

Sonos updated to software version 2.7 – and turned my iPhone into a much better looking Desktop Controller. As far as I can see all features from the desktop controller are available on the iPhone too. Great News!

One of the best news in this software package is the last.fm integration I have waited for so long. You can now play your last.fm radio stations, and Sonos scrobbels your music and transfers the songlist to update your profile. Perfect. Thats what I wanted.

Alexander is a happy camper, too

Shortly before christmas me and some other folks received a package from Sonos. Since I first read Volkers posting about Sonos back in 2006 I was infected by the Sonos virus. Since then I searched for the most convenient way to access my music library and to enjoy all the music I added in the last years. Of course I listened to that music via my iPod or the Altec Lansing inMotion iPod dock. But after all searches I always came back to the Sonos.

Now the Sonos has landed. Setup was easy thanks to the this best practice guide. Only remark: do not start with a Zone Bridge, connect a Zone Player first, follow the step by step instructions, and then connect the Zone Bridge to your router. Today I only run one Zone with one ZP80 because I have not decided yet which speaker to choose to connect to the ZP100.

Added the music library on my D-LINK DNS-323 to the Sonos. Music gets indexed very fast, it even adds all the playlists from my iTunes library. Then added the stream URLs of my favorite local radio stations and of course the stream for my kids favorite radio station 😉

I am very impressed. I am listing to music I have not listened to for a long time. It is so much fun to scroll through my library sitting on my couch. Using the Sonos sound system now for a few days changed the way I am listing to my music very much. I can recommend this thing for every music lover out there.
