Sonos, Inc., the developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the digital home, today introduced a new $349.99 ZonePlayer to complement the Sonos™ Digital Music System suite of products. The Sonos™ ZonePlayer ZP80 allows music lovers to play all their digital music, all over their house, on all of their favorite audio equipment – a home theater system, powered speakers, a premium table top radio such as a Bose Wave® Radio, and more.
By connecting a ZP80 to any amplified audio device via the analog or digital outputs, that device instantly and seamlessly becomes part of a wireless, multi-room digital music system. This provides the consumer with the power to use the full-color Sonos™ Controller to control all of their music, in all of their rooms, all from the palm of their hand.
The ZP80 can also be used to retrofit a conventional multi-room audio system with home-run speakers or as a wireless extender to increase the wireless range of Sonosnet™, the peer-to-peer wireless mesh network created by Sonos.
As with the Sonos™ ZonePlayer ZP100, the ZP80 includes auto-sensing line-in connectors that can digitally encode any line-in source. This provides Sonos users with the ability to connect an external audio source, such as an Apple iPod®, a CD player or satellite radio, to the Sonos Digital Music System and to listen to that source throughout their home.
The Sonos ZonePlayer ZP80 will ship in Spring 2006. The ZP80 will retail for $349.00 U.S.
