New Sonos Gear is Smaller, Cooler

Sonos just announced smaller receivers and players. The ZP120 – with amp – is 43 percent smaller and the ZP50 – without amp – is a standard receiver. Both use MIMO for increased range and link quality. If you’re familiar with the current Sonos line-up you’ll be doubly impressed by the size of these little buggers.

The entire kit, along with the LCD-based remote, connects to PCs and Macs and can stream audio to multiple rooms or zones. The real draw of the Sonos system is the zone system which allows you to play different music in different rooms. For example, my living room could be the drum and bass room while the basement could be the chill out room. The bathroom could be full of whale-song.

Pricing is still unannounced for the U.S.
