Poll Results: Sonos Preferred for Wireless Music

The results of last week’s survey are in. We asked if you have a wireless music system at home and a full one third of the respondents reported having—and loving— a Sonos system, followed by one quarter who have yet to venture into wireless audio. Apple AirPlay was the second most favored wireless setup, followed by Bluetooth, which came in a distant third. The complete breakdown is as follows…

32% – Yes, I have a Sonos system and I love it.

25% – Nope, my stack of audio gear is hard wired.

15% – Yes, I have an Apple AirPlay-based system and I love it.

8% – Yes, I have an Apple AirPlay-based system and it’s okay.

5% – Yes, I have a Bluetooth-enabled system and I love it.

4% – Yes, I have a Bluetooth-enabled system and it’s okay.

4% – I don’t have a wireless music system but my whole house is hard-wired for sound.

3% – Yes, I have a Sonos system and it’s okay.

1% – Yes, I have an Apple AirPlay-based system but I don’t like it.

1% – Yes, I have a Bluetooth-enabled system but I don’t like it.

1% – I don’t have a wireless music system but my AV setup has wireless surround speakers.

0% – Yes, I have a Sonos system but I don’t like it.

0% – I don’t have a wireless music system but I have a wireless subwoofer in my AV setup.

Stay tuned for our next poll. And let us know what subject you would like to see us to tackle.

I have wireless kind of system at home but none of the options you put up match exactly this:
I have a PC with all my music streaming wireless and a Squeezebox Touch (or something like it) and an amp wired to wired speakers.

I also have a wireless system (in a sense) that doesn't match any of these options either.

I run VLC on my media server, which has a digital coax running into the receiver. VLC has all sorts of smartphone and tablet apps to control the music wirelessly. I run controller apps on both my phone and my tablet.

It's a homebrew option that works just as well as any of those overpriced options on the list.. But didn't cost anything except for a cheap USB->SPDIF converter that works great. (Firestone RedKey)

Yes, what is the point of such a survey that is so closed, particularly when there are so many popular wireless options that have appeared on this very site? This seems to be a sonos/no sonos survey, really...

Squeezebox Touch here.

Curious how many people have purchased any of the emerging wifi connected amps and the spendier streaming solutions from both the common and boutique brands...
