Sonos Adds Abt, Ken Crane’s, Vann’s to Dealer Roster
Wireless multi-room music systems manufacturer Sonos said its Sonos Digital Music System is now available at Abt Electronics in Chicagoland, Ken Crane’s in Southern California and Vann’s in Montana. All of those regional retailers’ locations will not only sell but demo Sonos’ system.
The demos will be accomplished by running a broadband internet connection to a Sonos point-of-sale display, where customers can see how the system provides direct access to “millions of songs and thousands of personalized radio stations” via the Rhapsody and Pandora services, to which the Sonos system connects directly, thus providing instant access to content on its handheld controller without the need to turn on a computer.
The dealers will carry Sonos’ entire line, including the new $999 Sonos Bundle 130, a two-room system that includes a ZonePlayer 80, which can be connected to a stereo or home theater receiver to instantly make it part of the system; a ZonePlayer 100, which connects to speakers; and a CR100 Sonos Controller.
