Wyred 4 Sound - Sonos Connect - Modified ....

Post by joeinid » Mon Jan 05, 2015 4:09 am

This is hands down one of my favorite ways to enjoy internet streaming. Connect this to a high quality dac and you have beautiful music coming to your system. No computer necessary but you have access to all your music and streaming services via your smartphone, iPad or computer.

This upgrade entirely replaces the mediocre Cirrius Logic CODAC and the associated high jitter clocks. The mod was designed to integrate the SONOS system into a high end audio system through an outboard Digital to Analog Converter. This new custom board is installed in the SONOS and directly converts the I²S into up-sampled SPDIF. This new ultra clean low jitter signal is now available through both the Coax and Optical digital outputs. The SPDIF output's sample rate can be factory configured to 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96kHz.

The sonic benefits are quite dramatic. An entire level of low level grunge (harsh) is removed from the sound. This improves the low level detail and imaging. The bass is now much tighter and controlled inner detail and transient attack are both greatly improved. It is important to note that the modification does not allow the SONOS to play high resolution files. It does greatly improve the sonic quality of the digital outputs. The upgraded SONOS Connect in our system streaming lossless ripped CD's over our 100Mbps network, is now a true high-end source. Now with the Connect, you can enjoy the added benefits of SonosNet 2.0 which the ZP-80 did not offer. The latest wireless mesh network technology provides double the wireless range for whole-house coverage, ensuring synchronous music playback, and avoids sources of wireless interference. Which means the music gets to all the right rooms- near or far- at exactly the right time.
