Despite being a young company, Sonos has built a following for being a premier solution for wirelessly streaming music from your PC to all of the rooms in your house. But they've always been pricey little units—until now...
The New York Times puts it best:
Using the handheld Sonos controller or the Sonos iPhone app, each room can have its own unique music, or the entire house can bellow the same track simultaneously.But the opportunity has never come cheap. To set up Sonos in just two rooms costs $1149, including one set of speakers.
But the New York Times is also what tipped us on to the fact that Sonos is releasing a lower-priced device to do the same job.
The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 is an all-in-one device that can stream music from online radio or your PC all around your house—for the much more affordable price of $399. Plus, you can still control your Sonos setup with the iPhone app.
It's not out just yet, but you can sign up for the email list at Sonos' Web site to get updates on its release date.
