Sonos S5


$399.00 Released October, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:IPod Touch or iPhone can be used as a remote control. Network connectivity for streaming iTunes music, online internet radio (including popular subscription services). Powerful sound.

The Cons:Requires a network connection and mains power - not designed to be mobile at all. Small 3.5" subwoofer driver - not large enough to push large amounts of air, or create the lowest of the low frequencies. High price.

The Sonos S5 is an all-in-one speaker developed by a company that is not known for making speakers. Despite that it takes a unique approach where the consumer can use their iPhone or iPod touch as a remote control, but can't actually play music off of it or dock it.
