"The Sonos mesh network is independent of any other Wi-Fi network you might be operating, so you don’t need to worry about music clogging up the pipes of your data network. The new hardware is backward-compatible with older Sonos products: We merged the new ZP120 (the self-amplified model), the new ZP90 (the passive model), and a second controller into our existing Sonos network without a hitch."
For a few years now, Sonos has been plugging their flapship product, the Multi-Room Music System. Maximum PC has had the lucky opportunity to review the latest bundle to be released, the Sonos Bundle 150. It looks like Sonos has listened to complaints regarding their older products and have worked towards addressing most issues. Their ZonePlayer now has the capability of producing a wider range of sound with a bit more output and some more codec support has been added. Of note is free subscriptions and access to Last.fm and Pandora! Rich, tasty, multi-room music is here, but at a price! I'm already saving up. It'll be quite an upgrade from my personal FM broadcasting network I'm using right now.
