Last Tuesday, when we were invited to EpiCentre at Marina Bay Sands, we had a chance to experience this really cool wireless sound system called Sonos ZonePlayer S5. The Sonos ZonePlayer S5 is an audio player that comes with five built-in speakers powered by five dedicated digital amplifiers, two tweeters, two midrange drivers and a subwoofer.
To set up, you simply have to connect the S5 to the router and and have a laptop or desktop connected to that same router. Once the set up is done, you can access the music that’s stored on your computer. When you are connected to the internet, you can also tune in to more than 25,000 internet radio stations, shows and podcasts. Also, it works with popular music services including Napster, Pandora and Rhapsody.
With the S5, you can play different music in different rooms. Your iPod Touch or iPhone can serve as a controller and you can select the music and adjust the volume in the different rooms all at once or room by room. All you have to do is to download a free app. There’s no need to dock your iPhone and you can continue to make calls or sms while listening to the music.
Sonos is solely distributed by Tat Chuan Acoustic Pte Ltd. The S5 can be purchased directly from the showroom located at The Adelphi #01-17 as well as at EpiCentre outlets at ION Orchard, Wheelock Place and Marina Bay Sands.
