I've been a sonos user from the very start and have a 6 zone system ( 5 in house and one amp in garden ).
The amps and play 5 work fine in the house no issues….
The Garden ZP120 has always been a bit hit and miss in terms of connecting to the house. Sometimes you can find it in the zone list sometimes not. When you can find it getting it to join other zones is problematic also.
Yesterday being a lovely day, we wanted to sit out and enjoy the music from the garden.
It was on and off all afternoon and I got so frustrated with it I just turned it off and listened to it on headphones from my phone.
I was using Spotify and the house speakers were fine but the garden was very intermittent.
We normally have 35meg download but yesterday it was quite low at 7 meg download speed.
I tried getting music from my NAS drive so we were not streaming and that was cutting out also.
So I am trying to determine if its the internet connection or that the amp is too far away from any of the other sonos products.
Hard wiring isn't a real option so i wondered if anyone had any other suggestions.
My garden system is in a nice shed which is circa 10-12m from another Amp and 14m form a bridge unit. There are house walls / glass in the way too.
Any thoughts on how we can improve this situation would be appreciated.
We use sonos S1 also.
