Ladies & Gents of What HiFi

A quick plea - I noticed the other day that Sonos had a banner ad on the site. It set me to wondering if you have a relationship of any sort with them. I have been hoping for a Sonos bundle with unamplified zone players to be made available. Recently they introduced a new bundle that went the other way (2 x ZP120) but my requests to them to introduce either a 2 x ZP90 bundle or a Zonebridge plus ZP90 bundle are falling on deaf ears.

I'm surprised at Sonos as their ZP90 fits well within a decent Hi-Fi setup and I suspect lots of folks out there already either have amplification in more than one room or only want to add a Sonos to a single room to get started. 

So, my request, if it is possible, would be for you to use any influence or contacts you have to persuade Sonos that they are missing an opportunity with their current bundle offerings and to consider adding additional bundles that allow those of us who don't want amplified Zoneplayers to also be able to take advantage of a bundle offer.

My own personal wishlist would be for any/all the following

1 x Controller, 2 x ZP90 

1 x Controller, 1 x ZP90, 1 x Zonebridge

1 x Controller, 2 x ZP90, 1 x Zonebridge 

Thanks

Well i'm meeting the Sonos CEO next month at the Consumer Electronics Show, so i'll put your suggestion to the top man! In the meantime, have you contacted a Sonos dealer to see if they'd do you a bespoke bundle?

Thanks Clare - I'll await the outcome of that with interest.

I have tried Sonos themselves on the bespoke bundle (no luck unless I want to pay full price for all the units) but have not yet tried any dealers. I have checked many web-sites to see if any bundles already exist that provide what I'm after again with no luck ÿbut I'll give a few of them a call and see what they can do.ÿ
