It has proved to be anything but that. I have spent four hours fiddling with this stuff and I can get the Bridge to connect quickly and easily but the speakers just will not connect. I have tried all sorts of things, have googled extensively and had absolutely no joy. Lots of people seem to have had the same issues but I did not find a solution. Very frustrating. I have emailed Sonos support in the US but it's dark over there so will see if I get a reply later.
I was quite excited about getting this gear because it's supposed to be brilliant. I heard the Play 3's in a store and they were great (for a non-audiophile). But this has just become a PITA and I don't really want to take it all back to JB but I may have to do that.
Would welcome any comments or advice.
