Sonos Discontinue the CONTROL (CR200). Right Decision?

Sonos Discontinue the CONTROL (CR200). Right Decision?

All good things must come to an end. So, effective May 31st, Sonos will be discontinuing sales of the Sonos CONTROL (CR200). The CONTROL has provided Sonos customers with a fast way to play music for many years, but Sonos now†feel confident that†customers can†control all the music on earth using their†free apps instead.

With the recent addition of new Sonos Controller apps for Mac and PC, customers can control Sonos on smartphones, tablets and computers—in iOS and Android—for free. Which means you can spend the money you would have spent on a CONTROL on an extra room of music. For just £259, you can add the small, sexy, tuck in a corner, and blow out the roof PLAY:3.

Here at Stoneaudio we have always championed the use of the CR200 CONTROL.†iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and Android devices†all work great as secondary controllers but you cannot beat the speed of use of the Sonos CONTROL.† For one,†you don't have to enter the passcode†on your iPhone and then load the Sonos†app just to mute the kitchen speaker because the telephone is ringing. This may sound small fry but when you own and use a Sonos system every day you come to realise that the reason it is so great is because its faster than every other system out there. Not so when you're using a 3rd party device! Using the hard buttons found on the Sonos CONTROL there is no quicker way to operate your Sonos system. †For 2, it's reassuring that your multi-room system has a dedicated controller that can more often than not be†found on its charging cradle. Unless every body in your household has access to an iPhone, iPad etc.. these†devices†disappear out of the house with their owners each day, leaving the system without a convenient form of control?† Personally I think its a real shame the Sonos CONTROL is going. We have plenty of stock so whilst you still can, grab the best device for controlling a Sonos system. Order your Sonos CONTROL today!


The Sonos CONTROL (CR200) product warranty will be supported for two years from the date of registration.

Software updates will continue for the foreseeable future.
