Each specific voice and instrument shines through with more intense clarity as listeners connect with the music they love in a fresh and deeper way.

Debuting in a software release later this fall, Trueplay makes every PLAY:1, PLAY:3, and PLAY:5 even smarter.

Home Music Listening is Back…Thanks to Home Digital Music Solutions from Company's like Sonos

SONOS-System_UberDiagram
Remember the good ole’ days in which many homes were equipped with centralized music systems that pumped tunes into each room? The only problem was that such systems came with complex wiring systems and expensive built-in wall consoles, which were quite costly to maintain and nearly impossible to fix if broken.

Thanks to the digital age, technologies like Sonos have made it easy listen to music at home! Now music can be customized per room and controlled wirelessly via your MAC/PC, iPad, iPhone/iPod, or Android. Plus, your music listening options are unlimited as you can access it from Sirius, RDIO, Slacker, iTunes, Window media files, Wolfgang, and other sources.
