SONOS is a US company founded in 2002 to pioneer wireless audio systems, where they have assumed their position as the undoubted market leaders. The SONOS wireless Hi-Fi audio system delivers full-bodied sound that’s crystal clear at any volume as well as access to an almost unlimited amount of music from a wide variety of audio sources. It combines Hi-Fi sound quality and rock-solid wireless connectivity in a smart system that is easy to set-up, control and expand. The system is controlled with one simple app. developed by Sonos and subject to frequent free updates offering better sound quality or functionality. Multiple zones can be played independently of one another or simultaneously. There are three main types of player in the SONOS system: all-in-one players such as the Play:1, Play:3, Play:5 and ONE, the Connect for integrating other audio brands into the Sonos network, and the Connect:Amp for use with other brands of speakers (including ceiling speakers). There is also a SONOS PlayBar (Soundbar), Playbase and Subwoofer to complete the system. The Connect:Amp makes a virtually invisible speaker solution possible because it can be located out of sight, anywhere in your home. This could be in a cupboard, in the loft, or under the stairs. Then you simply connect appropriate ceiling speakers to play music absolutely anywhere you want without the ugly boxes in every room. Music in bathrooms, wet rooms and even outdoors is possible, and you can even connect your TV's audio to give you great TV sound through your virtually invisible speakers.

It requires just two cords: one power cord, one optical cord, which are both included. It will sync with other Sonos speakers wirelessly and will understand and work with most IR remotes. It can also be controlled by free apps for your Android®, iPhone® or iPad®.It will play all sources plugged in to your HD TV (satellite boxes, Blu-Ray players, and video game consoles) while hugely improving the sound from the TVs speakers.
