Item: Sonos Connect
Location: Sydney
Price: $950. Now $750 with postage included
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Foolish and expensive error- see below

Extra Info:

 I have owned this from new, for about 4 years.  For some bizarre reason I thought I had the 44kHz version and so I bought a 96kHz one from the US this week.  When I go to set it up I find the old one is also 96khz, so... the old one is now on the block.  Comes with Sonos Cables and box.  Working perfectly.    Damn fool!  The sound is beautiful and well worth an upgrade

 

Edit:  Looking at the bottom of this device with the 2011 date, I must have bought it in 2012 or 2013.  So 5 or 6 years.  Bullet-proof though, absolutely no issues

 

Edit: August 13.  I have obviously mispriced this, so here is a better number.  Postage included in Australia. This is a great little unit and produces a real improvement in sound Q, most noticeable with the FLACS from my local storage

I Iad a quick read of the website. It says that the dac has been upgraded. If I have a sonos connect plugged into a schiit bifrost. Would this version improve the sound through the schiit?

My understanding is that they leave the Sono DAC in place, with the expectation that you are going to use this with digital output to an external DAC.  That is what I have done.  I certainly feel the sound output through this is greatly improved compared to Analog straight through from the pre mod Sonos.  I have used with a Musical Fidelity M1 DAC and now a Mytek Brooklyn +

Very much so. The dac is left alone as is the analog outputs. It's the digital outs that are upgraded as is the internal clock which is upgraded to a Femto model which you pay big bucks for in other brand streamers and DAC's.

 

I've used 1 of these for a couple of years into my own dacs and found it to be a very big improvement over my standard Sonos Connect
