Sonos Wireless Dock WD100 streams iPod/iPhone music

Sonos Wireless Dock WD100 streams iPod/iPhone music

Sonos has outed the latest part of its streaming music puzzle, in the shape of the Sonos Wireless Dock WD100.  Packing an integrated Sonos wireless connection and an iPod/iPhone docking connector, the WD100 basically takes whatever music is stored on your Apple PMP and funnels it around the house.

It's all Apple certified, so there shouldn't be any annoying "this accessory isn't supported" pop-ups, and it'll work with a broad range of the company's hardware: the iPod touch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th, and 5th generation), and iPhone (original, 3G, 3GS and 4).  Sadly no iPad support, since the cradle is the wrong shape.

Sonos' latest ZonePlayer, the all-in-one S5, has gone on sale in the US today.  Packing a wireless receiver and an amplified 5-driver speaker array into a single, bedroom and kitchen friendly unit, the S5 automatically integrates into an existing Sonos setup, or alternatively could be used by those not wanting the extraneous mess and hassle of separate speakers demanded by the company's previous ZonePlayers.

Sonos have pushed out a new ZonePlayer in their distributed home audio system, and in doing so drops the entry price by a (relatively) high amount.  The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 packages together a receiver and an amplified 5-driver speaker into a single unit, which for $399 (or €350 in Europe) undercuts the previous entry-level ZonePlayer 90 which demanded a separate set of powered speakers on top of its $349 sticker price.
