Sonos to add your hi-fi to its wireless music system

Sonos, the company that makes the Sonos music centre that allows you to wirelessly share music in multiple rooms around your house has today announced the launch of the Sonos ZonePlayer 80 Bundle.

The new offering aims to turn your current audio equipment into a wireless, multi-room digital music system through two new units; the Sonos ZonePlayer 80s (ZP80s) and a Sonos Controller.

The brand new ZP80 Bundle lets you play all your digital music, all over your house, on all your current audio equipment - your home theatre, stereo, powered speakers, premium table top radio.

According to the company, all you have to do is simply connect a ZP80 to any amplified audio device in any room and that device is instantly and seamlessly part of a wireless, multi-room digital music system. You can wirelessly control all your music from the included wireless Controller.

Because all products in the Sonos Digital Music System are designed to work together, you can combine the ZP80 Bundle or individual ZP80s with the Sonos ZonePlayer 100 (ZP100) with built-in amplifier for true multi-room music in up to 32 rooms.

The ZP80 comes with digital (optical and coaxial) and analog outputs and includes auto-sensing line-in connectors that can digitally encode any line-in source such as an MP3 player, a CD player or satellite radio, to any ZonePlayer.

The Sonos ZP80 Bundle retails for £779.00 in the UK and $999 in the US. The ZP80 retails for £269.00 each in the UK and $349 in the US.

The ZP80 and ZP80 Bundle will be available in Europe by the end of April.
