You mean Sonos & not Sonus.

You don't need to "stream" to the Sonos, just share the location you put the music in, point Sonos to it and it pulls the audio files across the network. You don't actually need any music management software such as iTunes, Sonos won't even know its there. Just make sure your tags are fully filled when ripping and that should be everything you need.

Got it sorted earlier.  This was actually the piece of understanding I was missing.  Thanks.

I now have two new Play 1s up and running as a stereo pair.  Super!!
