This is a very cool new home system that lets you connect and control your AV content — either in your zone (local area) or entire home.
Unlike all the current streaming media players, the Sonos doesn%u2019t need a PC in every room, a music server or a wireless network. Just a Sonos ZonePlayer, speakers in the rooms of your choice and a Sonos Controller in hand to access all your digital music. The controller (pictured) is used to find and control the playback of music in the zone your are in, you can also control remote zones. All the hard work is done via the ZonePlayer. It has support for multiple music sources and accesses music stored on any number of PCs, Macs, or NAS boxes on your home network as well as Internet radio and legacy A/V devices, like a CD player. It can playback compressed MP3, WMA, and AAC music files (don%u2019t know about Apple DRM), uncompressed WAV files, and Internet radio that use %u201Cstreaming MP3%u201D format. They also have an analog audio input with digital encoding which connects an audio source (such as a CD player or portable MP3 player) to the audio input of one ZonePlayer. [MAVROMATIC]
