The mission of Sonos, founded in 2002, was to reinvent home audio for the digital age. By filling multiple rooms, listening to music can be made a valued experience once again. The Sonos system combats the issue of being limited to where you can listen to music, overcoming logistical issues such as moving speakers from room to room with too many cables, this system is completely wireless.
Sonos is a wireless home sound system works by connecting one single speaker to your home network, then adding more Sonos units (up to a maximum of 32) into the mix and using a dedicated secure wireless mesh network known as Sonosnet. The network is integral to the way Sonos’ multi-room speakers operate, it is separate from the home network resulting in a stronger and more robust signal.
The music can be streamed from a range of devices such as smart phones, laptops, tablets and NAS drives. There are plenty of companies that offer this, but Sonos is the world leader with it’s well-developed, researched and tested system.
