Sonos updating music index
Although I didn't hit the 65,000 track limit, I had a lot of playlists with lots of duplication, and this was what prevented those playlists from being imported by the Sonos software.Once I deleted some of my playlists in i Tunes the software made them available to the Sonos controllers.My colleague, Dan Frakes, has previously reviewed the original Sonos Digital Music System and the Sonos Zone Player 80.
The Sonos Multi-Room Music System is amazing for a variety of reasons.
A quick search of Sonos' Web site revealed that on a Mac running Leopard you have to switch on SMB sharing in the File Sharing section of the Sharing system preference.
Once this is done, the software is happy to list the contents of your i Tunes folder.
And what i Phone or i Pod touch owner wouldn't be thrilled by Sonos' free i Phone/i Pod touch controller application, which nearly duplicates the functionality of Sonos' 0 CR100 hardware controller (making it possible for frugal shoppers to skip the hardware controller altogether)?
Oh, and the music that comes out of it sounds great.The Zone Bridge attaches to your router and is used to channel Sonos' music to Zone Players--helpful when you don't want to place a Zone Player next to your router (you must have a wired connection between your router and either a Zone Bridge or Zone Player).
