We turn Sonos PLAY:5 up to 11

Nesjo

Best of both worlds

Buying Sonos isn't like selling your soul. You can keep your turntable and your pre-amp - the question is more a case of whether or not you'll still use them.

Audiophiles cover your ears, my Sonos is connected to a decent amp and some decent floor standing speakers (complete with optional spikes, for people who have carpets) via a Sonos bridge. Audio streams are always uncompressed, playing MP3 music at 320kbps from a NAS device. I've tried lossless and cannot hear the difference.

The key thing - Sonos devices are incredibly easy to use. Since we took the plunge, we've stopped using EVERYTHING else. Anyone want a second-hand Marantz CD player? I give you good price.

Excellent headline

Congratulations, Vulture Central. Your subs (presumably, if you have any left) have come up with a cracking headline. Love the Dante reference.

Sounds like a step down

My advice would have been to enjoy the Brocade pay off a little longer until a job at a suitable level came up.

Don't forget the weather

This isn't new, Fujitsu Siemens did a pilot 3 years back. Also don't forget the weather. The Trans-Siberian line is snowed in for 3 months of the year, maybe 4. How are those lappies gonna cope with -40 c?
