Hi,sorry I have a house full of Sonos,they are great speakers but have lost my faith in them these days.have put all my eggs in one basket now looking around now as I don't appreciate spending my hard-earned money to be phased out when it suits them . Very disappointing
I would buy one or two of these to complement my Sonos speakers but the cost for what the Port does just doesn't sit comfortably with me. They do more, but not a huge amount more than a Chromecast Audio which cost £30 when they were in production. I understand Sonos needs to charge more not to undermine their own speaker range, but still, £400? Half that would be fine. I have one of the older version of this, the Connect. It's a good piece of kit. I'd like to replace it with the Port, but even with 30% discount on the Port, it's too much.

Btw, if you do own this or the Connect and you're looking for an amp, I have paired my old Connect with the power amp below from Swedish company XTZ and it sounds great to me. You'll find reviews on YouTube. One great feature for working with the Connect is that it auto powers up when it detects a signal :-)

Why not just replace the Connect/Port and buy the Sonos Amp which is superb?

I haven't had a chance to demo the Sonons Amp yet. It's an option and a cheaper one than Port + XTZ. From what I've read, the Sonos Amp may struggle to compete with the XTZ power amp on quality - the XTZ really is a fantastic sounding bit of kit. Perhaps I'm underestimating the Sonos Amp.

Edit: Also, the XTZ is flexible in that it'll fit into any system. If I decide to move away from Sonos in future I'll still have the XTZ for building a different system - I've put together an alternative system using piCorePlayer on RPis. I'm not sure whether to stick with that or with Sonos or a mix.

Fair points. My experience of the Sonos Amp (new version) is all positive. It's also a very powerful bit of kit but you're right. It depends on how tied in you want to be to the Sonos ecosystem
