Hi, Welcome to my first blog.  We moved into a new house last year that already had speakers wired for sound but there was really no good spot for a large stereo receiver.  Instead we bought  four Sonos CONNECT wireless receivers.  A little pricey but it really helped with our seating options in our small living room by not having to position a bulky entertainment center.  We set the receivers up in the basement, ran speaker wire to the speakers upstairs and presto!  Now can play music in our living room, dining room,  sun room and by the pool all from the Sonos APP on our phone.  We can access Pandora, Amazon Music,  our music library on Apple iTunes, etc. and are very happy with our purchase!  The app is very intuitive and easy to use.

Here are a few “behind the scenes” photos of the Sonos receivers in the unfinished part of the basement.  I call it the “A/V” room but its nothing more than a closet.

The only place where speakers were not already wired was our bedroom. So we bought two portable Sonos speakers.  You just plug them into the electrical socket and connect to the APP.  The music sound amazing, although talk radio/news sounds a little hollow.

This is what the portable speaker looks like.

Thanks. When you say hollow, do they they only sound hollow with the portable speaker?
