This is a good deal for the Play 5 + Bridge. I ordered online for in store pickup.

I got a raincheck for 2 more units. Details.

OOS on BBY.

Everyone, Amazon already has the free bridge offer, let's get them to match the $299 price so we can use all the Amazon Gift Cards we got for the holidays!

Click Here to select the product
[amzn.to] and then hit Ctrl-F (CMD-F on Mac) and type "Tell us about..." and then fill out the form to tell them about the lower price. If enough people do it they may match!

Actually the latest update allows streaming from I devices straight to the sonos. It's limited to ios 6 however, but you can now play the music on your iphone over the sonos, much like airplay.
Can you link me to somewhere that says this? It's pretty much the one thing that stops me from purchasing a Sonos. I look on the Sonos website and I get this

"STREAM MUSIC FROM AN IPHONE(R), IPAD(TM) OR IPOD TOUCH(R)
Sonos wirelessly plays your iTunes(R) music, direct from your iPhone(R), iPad(R) or iPod touch(R), to any room in your home."
-Makes me think you can just use these items as a control

"LISTEN TO MUSIC THAT'S STORED ON AN IPOD OR IPHONE
Dock, charge and wirelessly play the music from an iPod or iPhone with the SONOS DOCK (sold separately)."
-Makes me think I need to buy a dock

On the Amazon website I get..

"Stream any song from your iPhone or iPad using AirPlay(R) by connecting an Apple AirPort Express(R) via line-in to your PLAY:5. "
-Makes me think I need to by an Airport

It's all so confusing to me. Hope you or anyone can help me out here. Much appre

Read the flyer this morning, and figured it was a typo - went online and couldn't find anything.

Used the link someone posted earlier, and added a Black Play 5 to my cart - came in at $399 - that was a couple hours ago. Re-reading this thread about successful in store purchases, I went back to the site to see what the inventory was near me - and the black Play 5 in my cart showed up at $299 - so I quickly hit the "buy" button!

My credit card says it's been charged, my store has none in stock so the site says 4-7 days before I can pick it up. I'm not holding my breath, but if it happens, I'll be a happy camper!
Same problem. After ordering I received an email saying I needed to call BB to change my order and pick up at another store or see if they could ship to my house. Long story short, these things are sold out everywhere and they're shipping my order to my home for free! bounce

Be happy with your Kia....I will take a BMW at a discount. I've owned Sonos components for over 6 years and they are without a doubt the best consumer music system. I'm an informed consumer and actual legacy Sonos owner, not a lamb. I know what I'm talking about. You, on the other hand, more than likely haven't heard or actually even seen a Sonos system in person...thus making your opinion worthless. Good try though.

value is different to different people....

Is this high end ... probably not.

Does this provide for high quality music enjoyment ... absolutely.

Is this better than squeeze box ... my ears say yes.

Oh by the way, sound engineering is my trade.

Not another lamb but someone that made an informed decision when a good deal came along..... as everyone should.

The Sonos is way overpriced at $399 and still overpriced at $299. You're paying a huge premium for essentially a cheap boombox with wireless streaming added.

Just because it is a $100 discount doesn't make it a better value or a deal.

The Squeezebox touch and duet system is a much better system in terms of sound quality, flexibility and overall in terms of user interface. The touch screen on the touch and the handheld duet remote are just fantastic. For the same price you can combine it with a much better sound system and get whole house streaming from a media server.

The squeezebox touch in particular uses very high quality DACs and with good quality audio files give you a superior sonic experience

These are discontinued but still available on sale from some merchants - They used to street at $220 and $ 190
