SONOS: You're Better Than This


For many music lovers there’s a huge gap between how we feel about music and how we listen to it at home. Don’t settle for bluetooth, hacks or builtin speakers. You’re Better Than This.

The Home Sound System
Sonos makes speakers, beautifully designed for every room in your home. Streaming all the music you love. Playing the same song in every room. Or different songs in different rooms. Grab your phone and take control of your music.

Control4 is now a Sonos endorsed partner

SonosC4
Sonos has just launched a new partner program and we are pleased to announce that Control4 is one of the first companies to become an endorsed partner. As you already know, we believe that homes are better (and smarter!) when everything works together. This partnership with Sonos is added proof of our commitment to bring the very best products into Control4 Smart Homes, providing you and your customers with the most choice and flexibility.

Control4's development teams have been working closely together with SONOS to build a driver that leverages the Sonos API to build the very best user experience possible. The new Sonos driver is currently in certification and will be ready to go soon and we will be able to provide a full Sonos demo.

Apple Music is coming to Sonos

sonos-apple-music
Handpicked songs. Delivered out loud.
We’re thrilled to announce that Apple Music is coming to Sonos in early 2016 – and Sonos customers can join the beta starting December 15. This is a real win for our customers – here are just a few reasons.

Personalized recommendations for everyone in the home.
Apple Music experts help you discover new songs based on what you already listen to and love. Sonos delivers each of those recommendations to your controller, so every listener under the same roof enjoys the kind of music they love most in any room of the house.

The jaw-dropping sound of more than 30 million songs.
With Apple Music, you get an instant, epic collection of more than 30 million tracks, including every song you’ve ever purchased from iTunes. With Sonos, you can hear every single one of those songs as loud as they like, in the places they like best.

Music with a human touch.
Apple Music brings you playlists handcrafted by music experts who eat, sleep, and breathe music and Beats 1 radio, broadcasting live from LA, New York, and London. Sonos uses Trueplay tuning to make sure customers hear every song just like the artist recorded it in the studio. No matter where they place their speakers.

The All-New PLAY:5 and Trueplay tuning

Sonos-new-play5
Sonos is 100% focused on the home listening experience. How to dial it up. How to get the purest, most exact version of your favourite music all the way from the studio to your own front door. With nothing lost along the way.

This fall, SONOS will be giving two great new reasons to love listening at home even more.

new-sonos-play5
Coming this year, a revolutionary, no-holds-barred overhaul of our existing PLAY:5. This ultimate home audio powerhouse is designed to turn every song – from old favorites to new discoveries – into a richer listening experience. Subtle details emerge. 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.

Rest assured, the launch of an all-new PLAY:5 isn’t going to affect our ongoing commitment to current systems. Look forward to regular updates and support for the original PLAY:5 for years to come.

trueplay-sonos
Debuting in a software release later this fall, Trueplay makes every PLAY:1, PLAY:3, and PLAY:5 even smarter. It uses an iPhone or iPad to measure how sound reflects off the walls and other surfaces in any given room. Then fine-tunes the speaker to make sure it sounds great, no matter where you put it.

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.
