Sonos offers new color for all-in-one S5 player
Sonos today refreshed the ZonePlayer S5 to add a black color. The new model adds to the existing white and mostly helps for those whose home theater systems or living rooms wouldn't match the original. Functionally, the system is the same as before and includes both an Ethernet connection and an internal Sonos wireless receiver with a high-powered 2.1-channel speaker system.
The system still costs $399 and should be available today. To use it wirelessly needs a $99 ZoneBridge to share the connection from a home router. Most input requires a computer, iPhone, iPod touch or Sonos Controller, though the desktop and iPhone apps are free.
