    I discovered SONOS

    Has anyone discovered SONOS wi-fi speakers? My 40 year old amp and receiver has the inputs going out, so I decided to up grade to a new bluetooth system to compliment my xm radio,soo I bought a bluetooth system and set it up, while doing so I found SONOS which happens when one thinks they have found the best solution to a problem. Any way SONOS is wi-fi streaming, can be connected to 34 different speakers in 34 different rooms each can control 34 volumes seperately and play 34 different formats on 34 different stations, and can be controlled by your laptop, tablet, phone, together as a singal unit. Contains iheart, pandora, and more free and subscription apps, speakwrs range from 200-600 to tv bars 1200 on up. I like mine.

    I have had a Sonos 5 for some time now.
    There are only two of us here so I just bring it inside when we have company. Was going to get a bunch of them, but there was no need.
    I used the money I saved to buy more bikes...
    But you all guessed that already

    More likely it is your 40 year old equipment with the OUTPUTS going out. Capacitors tend to dry out and puke after that long. Just so you know, if it was good equipment from the start, Marantz, Sansui, Yamaha, or many of the other name brands and near their top of line stuff back then it can be fixed. Stereo Equipment made in the 1970s is considered from the "Golden Age of Stereo". Monster amps and receivers with honest real RMS Watts for power outputs and if what you have is in this category then it has some nice value today. My Sansui G-9000 still works great today and was manufactured in 1976 and I had it bench tested a few years ago that showed it pumps out 175 watts RMS real power. The receiver weighs over 75 pounds and looks and sounds like the day I bought it.

    Since light travels faster than sound, some people appear bright until you hear them speak.
    If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Very true. I sold audio back in those days, and still have several Harman/Kardon Citation amps, an H/k 730 receiver, and 4 pairs of 30+ year old A/D/S speakers. 3 pair anchor my home theater rig, and the other is in my two-channel setup (SOTA turntable, VTL tube preamp, and Belles amp). It's true...they don't make stuff like they usedta.
