The Sonos Digital Music System has been honored by the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) as "Best of Audio" in the 2005 CES Innovations Design and Engineering Awards competition. Sonos is the first and only multi-zone digital music system with a wireless, full-color LCD screen controller that lets consumers play all their digital music, all over their home, while controlling it all from the palm of their hand. Sponsored by the CEA and endorsed by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), the CES Innovations Awards highlight product advancements in technology design and engineering.
The Sonos Digital Music System is comprised of two stylish components: the Sonos ZonePlayer, a networked audio player that distributes, plays and amplifies music in any "zone" in the home, and the Sonos Controller, a wireless handheld device with a full-color screen which allows the user to access, customize and control the music anywhere.
"We are thrilled by the recognition our consumer electronics and design colleagues have provided us by choosing the Sonos Digital Music System as Best of Audio in the 2005 CES Innovations Awards," said John MacFarlane, CEO, Sonos, Inc. "We have compiled an industry-leading team of developers, designers, and partners to build the digital music system of the future and look forward to introducing it to the international community at the Consumer Electronics Show in January."
During development, Sonos teamed with an industry-leading group of partners. Instrumental in bringing the Sonos Digital Music System to market are Gecko Design Inc., Inventec Multimedia & Telecom Corp., PixelMEDIA and Y Studios.
