The Sonos Wireless Dock, an accessory to the Sonos Multi-Room Music System, is now available for purchase for $119.
With the Sonos Wireless Dock (WD100), a consumer can now play all of the music from an iPod or iPhone in every room of the house while simultaneously charging their device.
The Sonos Wireless Dock sends digital music files wirelessly to ZonePlayers throughout the home via the iPod’s digital interface, without ever converting to analog. The all-digital path preserves the sound quality from the iPod to the speaker, the company says.
An end user can wirelessly play what’s stored or playing on an iPod or iPhone, including most iOS music apps, on any or all Sonos ZonePlayers. They also may browse and select the music from either a docked device or any Sonos Controller, even another iPhone or iPod Touch. And, they can play the same song from a docked iPod or iPhone in every room, in perfect synchronization, the company says.
“The Sonos Wireless Dock is the perfect accessory for our music loving customers who own an iPod or iPhone so they can play that music in any or every room of the home,” said Phil Abram, president of Sonos, Inc. “This new accessory reinforces our mission to provide our customers with access to all of the music on the planet, including everything available on their iPod or iPhone.”
The Sonos Wireless Dock is compatible with the following devices: iPod touch (1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation), iPod classic, iPod nano (3rd, 4th, and 5th generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 3G and iPhone, and has been certified under the Made for iPod program to meet Apple performance standards. The Sonos Wireless Dock supports Apple’s 1Amp charging specification so your iPod or iPhone are ready to go when you are.
