One of hi-fi’s greatest strengths is how rarely great-sounding components become redundant. Assuming it’s still in working order, even your first tape deck or turntable can still be fed new music from a healthy stream.

That’s why, rather than replacing your old system, multi-room solutions such as Sonos are usually tasked with encompassing it within the eco-system, with modules such as the Sonos Port.

Conversely, the Sonos Port is replacing a soon to be redundant model in the form of the Connect. Its core abilities are largely the same – acting as a multi-room streaming module for your traditional hi-fi set-up, and allowing offline components such as turntables and CD players to be played throughout the house – but it has been brought up to date so that it is compatible with newer technologies and, inevitably, the company’s future plans.
