WIRED WEDNESDAY – Sonos Music

All the music you want. All over your house. All from the palm of your hand!

A few months ago I did a review on Spotify (my music provider source) and mentioned using Sonos as my stereo at home. So what is a Sonos? Think of a magical spell that plays any song you want, in any room in your house.

The system can be controlled by Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, Mac, Windows and is customizable – all you need is a zone bridge and player and you can control everything wirelessly via your phone. No need to plug in anything else.

Costs are approx. $299-$399 for the player and $49 for the bridge.

And of course it looks stylish too!

WIRED WEDNESDAY

A few months ago I discovered Spotify, and am now addicted. I was annoyed with spending a fortune on iTunes music, but I now subscribe for $9.99 a month (premium service) to unlimited downloads for on AND offline music with Spotify – which means I can download music to my iPhone or iPod (or android device) and listen to all my music anytime, without a wireless connection. Perfect for business trips and using in hotel gyms. Even better, it works with my Sonos system at home.

Only downside I have found so far is that you can’t sync to an iShuffle, but I can live with that for the price!
