If you like to listen music at home then here is something that you might want. The Sonos Multi-Room Music System lets you play all the music you want, all over your house and control it all from the palm of your hand. With ZonePlayers in the rooms of your choice and a full-color Controller in hand, you can add music to every part of your life and every room in your house. The system is built around a high-quality wireless network, so no rewiring in required and it can be controlled from any room in the house.

The sleek and unobtrusive design blends well with any home décor and it was engineered to work right out of the box, so set-up is simple. Sonos provides you with instant access to millions of songs and stations — including music files stored on your computer, free Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services. The system gives you the freedom to listen to music in up to 32 rooms simultaneously – play the same song in different rooms or different songs in each room. You can also use the iPhone and iPod Touch to work as the controller to navigate the music. Simply grab the Controller and pick a room, pick a song and hit play. You can purchase this little music gadget for $999 for a bundle and also find more info from here.

    I own a Sonos system. It is very useful, but I honestly feel it is overpriced and has a lot of problems:
    - The system is slow. The controller is pretty, but the interface is kludgy and SLOW. It really feels like 2005 technology. (I have heard there is actually a better Sonos controller you can get as free app for your iPhone, but I haven’t tried this.)
    - Customer support is poor. The system offered me a free upgrade to my firmware, not bothering to tell me that the upgrade would not work with the version of MacOS I had. There was no way to downgrade, and my Mac wouldn’t support the newer OS. In other words, Sonos essentially forced with no warning an upgrade that made Sonos unusable on the computer I owned. I ended up buying a newer Mac, which had been on my todo list anyways, but certainly wouldn’t have happened then. Their customer support on this issue was basically non-existant.

    So the system is useful and cool, but does not have the level of support I might expect in this price range. I can’t strongly recommend it.

    Wonder if a wireless computer network will interfere with music reception.
