Your music, heard round the house, wirelessly.

Remember when top quality speakers were the size of a wing chair and about as portable? Not to mention they required an explosion of wires to connect with your stereo? Well, since most of us play or stream our music digitally nowadays, those systems seem downright Flintstone-ian.


The perfect solution?

The Sonos S5 (a.k.a. the Play:5), part of Sonos’ wireless music system. This all-in-one player (speakers and receiver in one cute box) pumps out unbelievably high quality sound and can be controlled by your iPhone, Android or computer. To take your tunes wherever you want, just add The Bridge, which plugs directly into your router so your S5 is free to roam anywhere in range (including out in the backyard). And, if you buy additional units, you can listen to your music in one place while your kids listen to theirs in another— a key feature as far as we’re concerned considering what passes for music nowadays.

Check out this week’s twirl and join the party! Plus we have a suggestion on how to repurpose all those CD’s you have stacked somewhere.

The best of everything..

I’ll tell you what I think… I think I’m going to have to put this on my “save for” list!! The Sonos Play:5 is a little spendy, and I’m not usually one to fork out that type of money for technology stuff. But I LOVE music. I have some type of music playing all day… I use Pandora at the computer, the radio in the kitchen, and a Party Cube out on the patio by the pool.

I LOVE Pandora, because I love the not having commercials, and that it’s my favorite music picks. I love the radio, only because it plays on a really great sound system. And the Party Cube is awesome: it charges when it’s plugged in, so then you can unplug it to set it outside, and easily hook up an iPhone or iPod to listen to your music.

BUT… This Sonos gadget kind of combines all of my favorite elements from the others into ONE simply uh-MAY-zing little box! How cool that it can be controlled with your phone, and works wirelessly to pull music from all of the places where you’ve got it! Super cool, right? It’s a bit on the pricey side, but with the great speakers, portablility, and amazing access to your whole music collection, this bad boy is SO worth it!

What do YOU think?

Do any of you ladies have one of these super cool music masters?? Do you looove it? I’d love to hear from you!
