Sonos is well known in the world of multiroom audio. But also in the world of custom installation. The music players and speakers have almost all possible links with smart home systems. That is why they are so popular among installers of CI. But outdoor, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers are still missing. That is now […]
Sonos has a reputation to uphold when it comes to ease of use, design and sound quality. The first Sonos zoneplayers set the ‘industry standard’ in terms of ease of installation and possibilities to easily play music from online sources.

Sonos and Google are certainly no longer close friends, because they are involved in a big patent dispute. So wait and see what the consequences will be.

Streamers have become a standard source in many high-quality audio systems. This is not surprising, given that all major brands have had a streamer in their range for more than five years.

The new Sonos Amp is a beautiful piece of design. Coupled with the technique and innovation we are used to from Sonos, there is a beautiful piece of Hifi. It is important to connect the right speakers to the Sonos Amp. Complex or heavy speakers are not a success. A common, golden mean is the sweet spot. The sound image that the Sonos Amp produces is worthy of Hifi. The use for media is also good, especially with the rear channels for surround.
Sonos is a brand that makes multiroom audio streaming products. The brand was founded in 2002 in California by John MacFarlane, Craig Shelburne, Tom Cullen and Trung Mai. Sonos is best known for its all-in-one wireless speakers. Sonos has undoubtedly turned the streaming audio market upside down. Since its introduction in 2002 and the large-scale adoption that started around 2006, competitors have tried to come along. A handful can do that. Sonos has a few unique points. First of all SonosNET, which is a mesh wifi system. In addition, Sonos supports almost all online services. That makes the product very versatile.
