Sonos™ Digital Music System Now Available Throughout New Zealand
Auckland, New Zealand - Playback Systems NZ and Sonos, Inc. today announced a partnership that will bring the award-winning Sonos™ Digital Music System to New Zealand’s digital music lovers. Playback Systems NZ will distribute, market and support Sonos products throughout New Zealand. The Sonos Digital Music System is the first and only multi-zone digital music system with a wireless, full-color LCD screen controller that lets consumers play all their digital music, all over their home, and control it all from the palm of their hand.
“The Sonos has been designed to deliver the ‘absolute out of box audio experience’ – rest assured, no other product can evoke such emotion from your music library” said Jason Lake, Managing Director of Playback Systems NZ. "Sonos redefines the musical experience for music lovers and with this motivation we are extremely proud to introduce Sonos to New Zealand."
"Since we launched the product in January, demand from overseas has been overwhelming," said Tom Cullen, VP Sales and Marketing, Sonos, Inc. "We are pleased to bring our award-winning music system to digital music lovers throughout New Zealand and hope to provide them with the ultimate multi-room home music listening experience."
The Sonos Digital Music System is comprised of two stylish components: the Sonos™ ZonePlayer, a networked audio player that distributes, plays and amplifies music in any "zone" in the home, and the Sonos™ Controller, a wireless handheld device with a fullcolor screen which allows the user to access, customise and control the music anywhere - from the bedroom to the backyard.
The ZonePlayer delivers great sound in every room of the house through a powerful and compact 50 Watts/channel amplifier with component-quality audio specifications. The ZonePlayer can access and play a wide variety of music formats, including MP3, WMA, AAC (MPEG4), FLAC, AIFF, Ogg Vorbis and WAV, stored on a PC, Mac or Network Attached Storage (NAS), and comes bundled with customisable Internet Radio stations.
Built-in wired and wireless capabilities provide the consumer flexibility of installation at no extra cost.
The intuitive Controller, designed with a full-color LCD screen and touch-sensitive scroll wheel, provides consumers with simplicity - pick a zone, pick a song and hit play - unrestricted by line of sight. Music lovers can play the same song synchronised in every room or play different songs in different rooms, queue-up favorites for the evening or rediscover their collection via random play; the options are virtually unlimited. The high resolution LCD shows what is playing in any zone at any time, including album art when available.
Playback Systems NZ will offer an introductory bundle of two Sonos ZonePlayers and a Sonos Controller. Since the system is scalable up to 32 zones, additional ZonePlayers and
