Sonos CR200 Leak

Sonos is poised to update its veteran home audio controller with its first touchscreen model as a leak has shown this morning. Where the existing controller depends on button controls and a small screen to steer the wireless audio system, the CR200 spotted by Automated Home would have a much smaller overall profile but a larger touchscreen as its near-exclusive interface. All the multi-room audio selection and track queuing of the current model appear to carry over, as would a charging cradle for power.

When the CR200 will be ready isn't specified, but when it launches it should be available "immediately." It should be matched by a new bundle that includes the updated controller with an only cosmetically modified ZonePlayer kit. Both the ZP120 and the ZP90 should also remain available by themselves.

    Sorry, Sonos

    Too little, too late Sonos. I lusted after you at first, but other better/faster/cheaper things have come along and taken my money while you were busy courting "channel partners" rather than attending to R&D.
