Sonos ZoneBridge BR100

Details have been revealed for Sonos' ZoneBridge BR100, an accessory which may save considerable money for those wanting to implement the company's wireless stereo technology. Whereas setting up a Sonos network currently requires having either the company's ZP80 or ZP100 stations near an Ethernet port, at a cost of $350 or $500 per unit, the BR100 should cost approximately $100, while still converting Ethernet transmissions into wireless broadcasts. Two Ethernet ports are available; this frees up a ZP station to be placed in a remote area, where it can be attached to speakers and/or an existing amplifier. The ZP100 features a built-in amp unit. At present, the BR100 is expected to be released later in the fall. [via Crave]
