Sonos Zone Player
Finally there's an easy way to get music from a central source to other rooms of the house without tearing out walls or having lots of loudspeakers strewn about. The Sonos Zone Player S5 has five speakers plus an amplifier inside a single compact box, delivering powerful sound. Just connect the separate Zone Bridge to your home's wireless network and it accesses Internet radio and music files stored on hard drives, as well as subscription music services like Pandora - and everything can be controlled with an iPhone.
