With ALL of these options Sonos makes it easy to get music through your entire house. You can have the same song playing through every room, if you wish, or have music split between different floors, rooms, inside vs. outside. The technology behind “pairing” and zoning is incredible. Therefore, offering what the staff here at Hifi Buys calls having a high wife acceptance rating. To make it even easier on everyone in the family – all you have to do is connect the Sonos speakers through wifi and use anything from iTunes, Pandora or Tidal.

As usual, we can only give you a little taste of what Hifi Buys can offer with the Sonos products on the blog,. So come see us at the Store! If Chris is around, he is your guy- he loves this stuff!
