Sound design ADD A MUSICAL TOUCH TO EVERY ROOM WITH SONOS BY RALPH GRAVES I f your idea of a whole- house music system is lugging a Bluetooth speaker from room to room, you need to know about Sonos. This popular music system lets you play any song from virtually any source in any room or every room. And you can control it all with your smartphone or tablet. Unlimited music Through your home Wi-Fi network, Sonos components can access the Internet. Choose from over 100,000 free Internet radio stations. Play music from free and subscription online services such as Apple Music, Spotify , Pandora , Deezer, and SiriusXM. Select tunes from Google Play Music, Amazon Music, TIDAL, Rhapsody, and more. Tap into your computer's music library or networked storage drive. You can even connect existing gear like CD and MP3 players and stream music from them to other Sonos components. And Sonos can stream different songs from different sources to different rooms simultaneously. So while you're enjoying a Spotify playlist in the kitchen, your spouse can be rocking out to an album stored on the computer in the den.
