My misses bought me an iPad for Christmas and finally I have a great piece of kit which I can start to develop my home music system. I have to be honest I have grown completely out of touch with technology and am a novice, but i just can't decide on what system I should buy.
i like the look of the sonos system which is on offer at present the play 3 plus bridge and napster included at £229, but then there's the Bose soundlink and b&w a7 which run through airplay. I live in a cottage with thick walls but can access wi if fine across the home without any glitches, however should I opt for the airplay systems or sonos? If I went for the Bose or b&w would I need to purchase the airport express or can these operate without it?
which is the most future forward????? The best purchase long term? And one which I can add to when I move to a larger home.
then there is the portability factor the Bose has the rechargeable attachment and both the Bose and b&w can be plugged into the tv (I think), whereas the rear connection options on the sonos are limited.
then there's the question of the Bluetooth wireless speakers, (to be fair I think I have ruled these out, it seems the price of a good quality Bluetooth speaker I may as well stick with a sonos or good quality airplay unit), however the jawbone jambox big has had some good reviews.
i'm reluctant to have to pay over £200 quid for such a speaker system but would bite the bullet and push the budget if the benefits/quality outweigh anything else.
Products like the ihome and Sony sans don't seem to cut the mustard, is there anything in between, or am I avoiding the inevitable that the best purchase would be a sonos or Bose or b&w?
Help I need some guidance!!!
