I consider myself to be musically extremely fortunate. I was teenage when Richard Branson started Virgin records (didn't he do well!) Went to the Shepton Mallet Music Festival which turned into Glastonbury...saw most of the mega bands live before they became legends. Had a Dansette, a Garrad deck then a walkman, the first generation Phillips CD player, still have my old vinyl, piles of CDs! Although my musical heritage has been unforgettable & awesome, I love to dip into current trends & genres. But....and it's quite a big but for me, there is so much music out there it can be a little overwhelming.
Que Sonos. I was lucky enough to get A Sonos 5 & a Sonos 3 with Bridge & 6 months Napster deal for Xmas & birthday (Boxing day...yuk!!)
An absolute doddle to set up, all cables, connectors & software supplied, it is really plug & play! Extremely well made, Sonos kit exudes quality. Smaller in dimension than you might think, certainly bigger in tone, volume & richness than you would think. I was so impressed I went out & snapped up a Sonos Connect to link my current HiFi system into the Sonos network. But two things really seal the deal for me. Via Napster I can dip in & out of a wealth of music that would not have been easily accesible to me, I can build playlists, experiment with little known & up & coming artists, go outside my comfort zone. Play different music in different rooms simultaneously, listen to a seemingly endless list of world radio stations, play my i-tunes library through any or all of my Sonos connected systems. Ok that's maybe more than two things, but the combination of Sonos & Napster have opened up a new chapter in my musical journey, & I am quite simply.... delighted!
