convert a SpeakerCraft system to Sonos?
Hello. I currently have a "traditional" speaker craft system with 5 different speakercraft zones in my home. My speakercraft amp is an MZC-66. I've used Sonos at a number of other houses and am really impressed with the quality and ease of use. I talked with a few people who seemed to indicate that I could pretty easily convert to Sonos by buying a Sonos amp and attaching it to my MZC-66? And then could easily add Sonos speakers and systems to other rooms as they join the wifi network? True?

Yes, it would be very to add a SONOS CONNECT to your existing MZC-66 as a source. The CONNECT will function as a player and also a wireless repeater for other Sonos units. You'll need at least one Sonos unit wired to the router at all times, though, so if the CONNECT does not have an Ethernet connection to your network then you'll want to get a SONOS BRIDGE as well. From there, all other Sonos components can be wireless so you can expand your system wherever you like.
Let me know if you have any additional questions and I'll be happy to help.
Do you have a way you can plug the Connect directly into your router to confirm it is functioning. If you do that we can move forward some more steps to try and get your bridge working again.
Also Make sure the bridge is not right up against your router. Give it a couple feet - whatever the wire will allow.
Make sure Sonos is not operating on a channel close to your home router.
Thanks for your help!
