S’wonderful, s’marvelous, S-AIRPLAY? For those looking for a Sonos system at something other than Sonos prices, Sony has S-AIRPLAY.

Sony’s latest announcement uses an iPod as the backbone to a wireless multiroom audio system. Just dock your iPod, plug the S-Air wireless speaker into any power outlet, and you’ve got music. The system uses Sony’s S-Air technology, which promises interference-free use up to 164 feet. It also charges your iPod while in use.

Other features include composite outputs, sleep/alarm functions for each speaker, and an AM/FM tuner, which turns the S-AIRPLAY (also known as model AIR-SA20PK) into a dual source unit. That means you can rock out to your iPod while someone else in the house listens to regular radio.

The $400 price tag includes the docking station and two S-Air speakers. You can add on speakers, up to 10 for one system, for $130 each. All will be available starting in September.
