Sonos ZoneBridge 100

So what does this thing do? Who is Sonos? Sonos is the company that enables you to literally spread your music and other web-based audio streams around your house like its your manifest destiny.

The ZoneBridge 100 does one of two things, lets start by saying that without this device, you have to dedicate on of the ZonePlayers to wherever your router or internet connection is, with this device you no longer have to do that, it can take the place of the one device with an internet connection allowing the rest of the system to be wireless. Or, if you’d prefer, and you have a hugemongous house, you can use it as a simple range extender for your Sonos system.

Sonos’ Home Audio Just Got A Sirius Boost

Sonos’ Home Audio Just Got A Sirius Boost

LinuxDevices is reporting, Sonos, known for their easy set-up home audio equipment and wireless streaming of all sorts of audio, has recently made the choice to add Sirius to their list of services they offer.

We did a review of some of their older equipment a while back, you can find that here. Since then they have added a pair of speakers to their lineup and that’s pretty much it. The big news comes in the form of this being one of the first Linux-powered devices to be granted the right to play Sirius.

‘Magic Box’ media center concept looks like Sonos grown up

Looking quite a lot like an overgrown Sonos unit, and with a strikingly similar remote control design to boot, the ECS 'Magic Box' contains a full Vista Media Center PC rather than any sort of genie.  Shown at Computex Taipei 2007, where it won third place at the Intel Core Processor Challenge, it unsurprisingly runs an Intel Conroe CPU with a maximum 2GB RAM.  Next to the top-mounted optical drive a docking bay keeps the remote - which is a wireless Windows Sideshow unit - charged and ready.

SONOS Digital Music System Reviewed

The Sonos Digital Music System is the must have home audio system for today's digital music lovers. The system allows for digital music from multiple sources to be wirelessly streamed to multiple zones and controlled from multiple locations to play in synchronization or to each play different music. All this might be expected from a home audio system, but the key here is the super easy wireless setup, the convenient Rhapsody integration, and the clean modest design that fits well in any room. This system makes a mighty contender for your wallet this holiday season, and I got my lucky hands on a set for a test drive.

My experience with it was great and I have to say it in the spirit of the golden arches that I'm lov'n it. I am more the typical mp3 hording, iPod toting individual and not an extreme decked out audiophile, and so I feel unqualified to really judge the sound quality. But to my untrained ears, I found the sound quality to be superb.

This is the Nexus 9, Android Lollipop’s tablet vanguard

Google's Nexus 9 faces more than a few challenges. Not only does it have the job of following Google's well-esteemed Nexus 7, which for two generations gave Android tablet fans an affordable and bag-friendly option, but it also serves as flag bearer for Android 5.0 Lollipop on a tablet form-factor. Throw in the fact that it also marks HTC's long-awaited re-entry into the slate segment, and that it's the first true 64-bit Android tablet courtesy of NVIDIA's Tegra K1, and that's a whole lot of pressure resting on one 8.9-inch iPad rival. So, how does it hold up?

JookBox speaker lets every listener add to its playlist

The wireless speaker market is getting crowded, being packed by big players like Sonos and smaller brands alike.
