I plugged in the first ZonePlayer into my Apple Airport router; turned on the power; pressed the mute+volume button. Less than 30 seconds later, the Controller displayed the first ZonePlayer. It was named, Library. Repeated the process with ZonePlayer two, and with equal ease, added it to Music Network sites, and named it Living Room. I then plugged in the Buffalo LinkStation. Followed the instructions, and a minute or two later, the NAS drive music was available on the Sonus Controller. Currently listening to Internet Radio as if I was plugged into any over the air radio station. So far, the whole process has taken less than 15 minutes. So far, I have not installed any software and the lovely Apple found the NAS drive in less than a few seconds. More to follow, after I move all my music out from Powerbook to NAS.

  1. Thanks, I am really interested in buying one of these systems.

    So with an Apple Airport Base Station, it was really as easy as plugging in the player, removing, then plugging in the NAS Linkstation? I think I will be attempting a similar setup.

    How is the file transfer going? Are you doing it wirelessly?

  2. No i did not uplug the first one. I just left it there. on the file transfer, since i have a really fast router, it took about 4 hours to back-up nearly 60 gigs of music. you must get a buffalo linkstation. it is fantastic network drive.

  3. Sounds like smooth saling. Have you run up against the 32 character file name limit for Mac? I’m a bit squeamish – this appears to be a documented problem.

    My only problem is that it does not support streaming radio formats other than MP3. I can’t listen to any local NPR or classical channels. I wish they also had an FM radio integrated to the device

  6. [...] Sonos Sound System did feel incomplete without a cradle/charger for the wonderful remote control. Now it seems the little music family is complete. Check out my review of Sonos. [...]
