  1. If you have the 5 Sonos players, will you see 5 separate icons representing each player in navigator and you have to pick 1 OR can you just see 1 and C4 will just pick whats not being used? If you see them all what would you name them something like Sonos 1, 2, 3, 4? If you see them all then it becomes a guessing game to know which one isn't being used or you are changing somebody else's channel?
  2. I would just use the connect Amp otherwise you would have to lock the inputs on the matrix Amp no? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Looking to go all in on either one which would includes switches, power, and wireless but I guess that could be many other discussions. Maybe one doesn't fit all applications but looking for best fit. For us cost isn't a roadblock just looking for reliability and of course remote access Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Anybody having experience with both have any comparisons to make?
  6. IOS. I feel that same about the PC app as well. I would much rather fire up the Sonos app on my laptop if I was sitting doing some work and wanted to listen to something. I just don't think there is any comparison in the user experience between the 2.
  7. Yes that is right and I know they won't so that is why I will go back to the Sonos app. One app does not rule them all no matter how hard they try. It's just a matter of convenience. When I want to turn on some music I don't care about my lights, or anything else for that matter. I just did a house with almost a dozen zones and the customer made me put in a dozen connects because they were accustomed to the app so that is why I decided to see why since I couldn't see what the big deal was.
  8. The last few weeks I have been forcing myself to use the C4 interface for audio functionality. Music is probably what I use the most out of everything. I had a 1-1 Sonos player to audio zone setup and have been using that for a long time via the Sonos app. I put that all aside and picked up a 4 channel C4 matrix, put 2 inputs of audio from an EA3 into it and have been giving that a workout. What a disappointment. Firing up the C4 app and getting into music and everything is really cumbersome in comparison to using the native Sonos app. There really isn't a comparison in speed and usability. C4 should make multiple apps, one just for C4 audio that does nothing else maybe?. Going back to my Sonos bricks.
  9. I doubt that would happen. People are in business to make money and they should be able to do that. Everything takes time out of somebody's day and that is all billable. Being a dealer is a big expense and $25 on top of a few bucks discount is only a drop in the bucket. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Except for one zone of outdoor speakers all will be origin acoustics in ceiling 8" Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Looking for recommendations on using multi zone amp with C4 matrix. Of course looked at the C4 amps but there are others like Audiosource, Episode, etc. that are slightly less money. Also have about 12 zones so would need most likely 2.
  12. If only there was some sort of a network driver so you could launch it from Navigator instead of your phone. $30/zone would kind of kill Sonos/heos type companies? Can you group chromecasts via your phone or would you do that through C4? Also unless you have another device or switch to another service you wouldn't be able to pull up a different stream?
  13. If I put a single chromecast into an audio matrix for $30 you could stream that all over the house? That's great. Have to start it from the phone but could use C4 to add zones and control volume and then power off too correct? Could get direct voice control from Google home then as well. Anybody actually do this? I guess there would be no way to do multiple streams with more than one unless I was casting from different devices though?
  14. Anybody put it to use yet? Interesting to see how it works on Sony TV in C4.
  15. Man it wasn't until my second cup of coffee that I realized that I am 100% wrong! Sometimes I'm amazed at my own stupidity. Sorry Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
