Maybe next week I'll dig up a CD player and tape deck.

For shits and grins, I hooked up an old Sony amp and some real speakers in my office.

While the Sonos is fantastic when it comes to convenience and flexibility, there is really something to be said for having actual audio gear, even if it is decidedly mid-range stuff.

It is also worth noting that this amp is at least ten years old, and the speakers are probably older, and it all still not only sounds fine, but will never require any firmware updates.
