Best Buy is bringing multiroom audio into the mainstream, as it has begun carrying the product line of Sonos, Inc., and will be include the company’s digital music system in more than 600 locations by the end of 2007, Sonos announced.
For consumers unfamiliar with the multizone music solution provider, Sonos will be spotlighted with a live, interactive demonstration, the company says. The products are also available at www.bestbuy.com.
Featured will be the Sonos Bundle 130 (BU130), which retails for $999 and allows customers to play digital music in two rooms with handheld wireless control. The bundle consists of a ZonePlayer 80 (ZP80) which can be connected to an existing stereo or home theater receiver to make it part of a digital music system; a ZonePlayer 100 (ZP100) which can be connected to speakers and placed in any room; and a Sonos Controller (CR100) providing wireless multiroom control of all your music from any room in the house.
The wireless Sonos Controller allows for plug-and-play access to millions of songs — including music services, Internet radio and your personal digital music collection, the company says.
