Sonos BU130 Wireless multi-room music system
The new Sonos Bundle 130 allows music lovers to wirelessly play and control music in two rooms of the house. The music can come from your computer (PC or MAC) or from a network drive containing your MP3 and other audio files.
This bundle is comprised of three high quality components; the Sonos ZonePlayer 80 (ZP80), Sonos ZonePlayer 100 (ZP100) and the Sonos Controller 100 (CR100).
