Luxury Electronics: These days, virtually everyone has an exhaustive library of music on their personal computer. Combined with sites like Pandora or Sirius, a plethora of great music is just a click away. As wonderful as that technology is, it still requires the user to visit their computer to log out or log on, close or open a program – all while being tethered to their desk or laptop. Wouldn’t it be so much simpler to control your entire library, Rhapsody, Pandora, Last.FM, Sirius and more right from your iPhone or iPod touch? Now you can, thanks to the new Sonos Zoneplayer S5.
What is great about the Sonos Zoneplayer S5 is that you can place wireless speakers throughout your home or office and pipe music -- different music, if you like -- into every room. Simply connect one unit to a router and the rest only need to be plugged into a power source. The Sonos Zoneplayer S5 also comes with thousands of free radio stations from around the world. Now that’s pretty cool.
To control the Sonos Zoneplayer S5, iPhone and iPod Touch owners can download the free app that allows users to stream music to one or more speakers. Like using Apple’s iPod app, navigating away from the controls does not interfere with other functions so you can continue talk on the phone, text, check email and more without fear of interrupting your music.
The wireless music system has been featured on FOX News as a top-10 gadget for 2009 and was named a Best Gift for the Hostess with the Mostest on Lifetime TV. The Sonos Zoneplayer S5 is priced at $399.
