SONOS GIVES MUSIC LOVERS A STATE OF THE ART
MULTI-ROOM MUSIC EXPERIENCE

New Sonos Bundle 150 Brings Music to Every Room

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – August 5, 2008 – Sonos®️, Inc., the leading developer of wireless multi-room music systems for the home, today introduced a new state-of-the-art multi-room music system. Now music lovers can play all of their favorite music in every room—from the bedroom to the backyard—without breaking through walls or rewiring the house. With Sonos ZonePlayers spread throughout the house, music fans can play the same song in different rooms, or different songs in different rooms. And with the wireless Sonos Controller in hand, choosing what to play and where to play it couldn’t be easier. Simply pick a room, pick a song and hit play. The Controller provides instant access to millions of songs and radio stations — including music files stored on a computer, free Internet radio stations, and the most popular online music services.
The new Sonos Bundle 150 (BU150) is the most convenient and cost effective way to experience the excitement of wireless multi-room music. The bundle includes two Sonos ZonePlayers (amplified and non-amplified) and a Sonos Controller so music lovers can get started playing music in two rooms of the house. Enjoying more rooms of music, more control or both, is as easy as adding ZonePlayers and Controllers. The new bundle retails for $999 and is available starting today at Sonos authorized retailer or at www.sonos.com.
In one convenient package, the BU150 includes:
• A Sonos ZonePlayer 90* (ZP90) which can be connected to an existing stereo or home theater receiver to instantly make it part of a multi-room music system.
• A Sonos ZonePlayer 120* (ZP120) which has a powerful audiophile quality amplifier which can be connected to speakers and placed in any room; from the bedroom to the backyard.
• A Sonos Controller 100 (CR100) which enables users to find and play the music they want from anywhere in the house all from the palm of their hand.
*See accompanying press release with details and specs of new ZP90 and ZP120

“The new Sonos products provide the best wireless range and a powerful digital amplifier and make it easier than ever to get great sounding music to the most distant corners of the home," said John MacFarlane, Chief Executive Officer, Sonos, Inc. “Innovations like these reinforce our position as the leader in wireless multi-room music and our commitment to bring the joy of music to every room of the house.”
The BU150 is the most cost effective way to start a multi-room music system. The $999 pricing represents a 20% discount off of the sum of the individual Sonos products. Sonos is also offering a Sonos Bundle 150 with Loudspeakers for customers who also want a pair of Sonos speakers to attach to their ZP120. The BU150 with Loudspeakers will retail for $1149.
In conjunction with today’s BU150 announcement, Sonos also introduced Sonos Software 2.6 to all Sonos customers. The new feature update includes more than $200 in DRM-free music offers, support for music collections with up to 65,000 tracks, and more. See accompanying press release.
