Had a great time tonight mingling with like-minded music geeks at the launch party for the new Sonos Controller 200. What is Sonos, you ask? Simply it’s the best digital music management system out there. It gives you the power to access all of your music in your house anywhere, anytime. And I’m not just talking about your digital music library. The system comes with a host of embedded services like Rhapsody, Last.fm, Pandora, Internet Radio, Sirius/XM…it’s the perfect music tool for those afflicted with OCMD.
The original Sonos Controller was a bit of a beast. So the Sonos Controller 200 (CR200) is a definite form factor improvement, and who doesn’t like that? It’s palm sized and touch screen operated, just like an iPhone or iTouch. The company also has a free app for those devices that gives you essentially the same functionality, but that’s a little personal for everyday public consumption. So the controller still serves as a necessary component to the system and I will be happily swapping out the 100 for the 200 in my home.
