Sonos unveiled today the Sonos ZonePlayer S5, an all-in-one wireless music system that can be controlled with an iPhone, iPod touch or any Sonos Controller.
With the ZonePlayer S5 you can play any song from an iTunes library, plus, use radio on the Internet, in any room of the house.

The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 features a 5-driver speaker system that packs a big sound – filling an entire room with music.
Sonos designed the S5 with an all-digital sound architecture for precise sound reproduction. The S5 includes two tweeters, two mid-range drivers and a built-in single woofer – each individually powered by a dedicated digital amplifier and optimized to deliver room-filling sound with smooth tonal balance and deep bass.
All filter settings, bass and treble controls, active equalization, and time-alignment are done in the digital domain through state-of-the-art DSP circuitry, so there’s absolutely no loss of audio quality or energy.

Sonos works seamlessly with the most popular music services to provide computer-free access to millions of songs and stations from the likes of, Napster, Rhapsody, Pandora, SIRIUS Internet Radio, and Deezer.
The S5 also gives you access to any iTunes library stored on any computer or Network Attached storage, such as an Apple Time Capsule. The S5’s analog audio input lets you connect to an external audio source (such as an iPod, CD player, TV, DVD, VCR, or radio) and play music or audio on all ZonePlayers in the system.

The Sonos S5 uses a Sonos proprietary wireless protocol. Therefore you need a ZonePlayer or Sonos ZoneBridge (sold separately) that is connected to your router.

The S5 will be available for purchase in the United States beginning in late October for $399. Via the Sonos site.
