ZonePlayer 80 Bundle
Sonos today announced its new Sonos ZonePlayer 80 Bundle, its solution to transform audio equipment into a wireless, multi-room digital music system. The new bundle includes two compact Sonos ZonePlayer 80s (ZP80s) and a Sonos Controller, allowing users to play digital music, all over the house, on any current audio equipment, such as a home theater, stereo, powered speakers, premium table top radio such as a Bose Wave radio, and more. The compact ZP80 has digital (optical and coaxial) and analog outputs and also includes auto-sensing line-in connectors that can digitally encode any line-in source for connection to an external audio source, such as an Apple iPod, a CD player or satellite radio, allowing the music to be delivered to all other connected ZonePlayers. The suggested retail price of the Sonos ZP80 Bundle is $1000.
"By simply connecting a ZP80 to any amplified audio device in any room, that device is instantly and seamlessly part of a wireless, multi-room digital music system," according to Sonos. Plus, you can wirelessly control all your music from the palm of your hand with the industry's only full-color wireless Controller."
