Ratings and Reviews
Needs multi-room controls
Iport Xpress is really promising for Sonos control and in time I hope will get much better, but the current early version of the firmware completely disables the iPort when the Sonos zone you are trying to control is grouped with any zone. The product is only usable for standalone single Sonos zones. For any Sonos user with more than 1 unit, this is severely crippling.
The firmware needs to be fixed so that the remote operates exactly like the physical buttons on the Sonos unit. When grouped, the iPort remote should control the volume of the sub-zone only (not the whole group) and send play/pause/FF commands to the group master.
The one divergence from the replication of the physical buttons could be an OPTION in the firmware to have the volume control the whole group instead of the sub-zone, but this should be a toggle-able option not the default functionality. The default should be to replicate the physical Sonos buttons.
Love the Control keypad
I purchase several of these around my home where I have Sonos speakers. To not have to run to IPad or speaker itself to change volume is a great unit. I mounted the one piece with screws with the other supplied holder I placed in my restrooms near shower so I can have unit close. My issue with these is they are not seen from IPad to IPad. I have to install them all over again if I just so happen to b using different IPad when I am listening to music upstairs verse downstairs. IPort would love if it worked like other apps such as Sonos. Once it see network it is on I have my speakers and music no matter the iPad.
Great addition to Sonos
This is what I have been waiting for to make my system awesome for our house. It is a great addition, easy to control and makes the home system truly awesome.
