I just bought a house that has a h484 with all zones enabled. At this time I don't think I will need different music in separate areas. So I only plan to use one of the inputs and at a later time I could add some more sources. I do have about a 200 album Itunes library but mostly want to stream Pandora. Just wondering what would be the best way to get Pandora as a source. I was thinking that I would use a Sonos connect as the easiest and cleanest way but wondered if anyone has any other suggestions that might work.

Since you mentioned Itunes, I am assuming you have ipod, iphone, ipad or some set of apple devices. I think iphone/ipod will always have the best set of apps for streaming/consuming music (pandora/spotify/etc), so I am planning on using AirPlay from my devices to stream my distributed audio. Buying a $99 airport express (https://www.apple.com/airportexpress/#airplay) and plugging it into whatever you use to distribute audio should work pretty well assuming you've embraced apple products.

Thanks but it seems like the sonos software is better from my reading. I got a sonos for droid and apple support.
