The Sonos S5 Zone player has arrived. This is a really cool innovation from Sonos. It’s a wireless, one-piece speaker system that works with an iPhone or iPod Touch. Unlike most docking stations, the S5 doesn’t require the iPhone or iPod Touch to be docked in the unit itself.
Sonos took speaker systems to another level with the S5. Controlling the S5 is done from your iPhone or iPod Touch using a downloadable, free app. Set-up is a breeze; all you have to do is search for the new speaker on your iPhone or iPod Touch, press two buttons on the S5, and you are ready to go. By having multiple S5 speaker systems you can play different songs in different rooms or using party mode—play the same song in different rooms.
The S5 gives you the freedom of keeping your iPhone or iPod Touch with you instead of docking it. You can browse through 25,000 free internet stations, millions of songs streaming on the internet, or your entire iTunes library—not just what is stored on your iPhone or iPod Touch. Also, if you receive a text or incoming call while music is playing, it won’t interrupt the music.
