Turning Wi-Fi into Hi-Fi with Sonos This Summer


Sonos is exactly what you're looking for; Indoors or Out

Over the past decade, audio has experienced some huge transitions. While CD’s are still available in stores, we see more people downloading their favorite songs on their mobile device or listening to music online. Simplicity is the key. Why carry the baggage when you can take your music with you in your pocket? Today, speakers are no different. One can find small pocket sized speakers or a high quality Bluetooth speaker to suit their lifestyle for any given situation. Suffice to say, as sound connoisseurs we've tested them all. Sonos is a fantastic brand that we systematically include in our home audio designs for every customer. The Play3 and Play 5 speakers (often referred as zone players) offer big sound, transportability, and the option to listen to music online through music services like:

  • Songza (Thousands of genre based playlists with the ability to skip tracks that you don't like)
  • Rdio (like Netflix for music lovers...access all the music in the world on demand for a small monthly fee)
  • Songify
  • Pandora
