The rooms are alive with the sounds of Sonos

My S5 and ZoneBridge finally arrived a couple of weeks ago from Advanced Lifestyle Solutions. Still can’t believe I just purchased a wireless music system for under $800, (something I long thought was totally unachievable). What I love most about Sonos is its simplicity- yes I’m technologically challenged and affordability. It’s like an iPod for your home. After a short lesson from the guys at Advanced Lifestyle Solutions I was set. I can search by artist, album, genre, imported playlist or track. I can even search local and global radio stations. Gone are the days of rummaging for CD’s and changing them every 80 mins, I’m very spoilt now. Don’t get me wrong I still buy CD’s, but now it’s for expanding my digital music library. Sonos can grab music from iTunes, iPod or computer. Using Sonos is so easy it’s not worth wasting words on, (hardest part was getting it out of the box).

A word from one of Advanced Lifestyle Solutions' clients...

How I love my Sonos, let me count the ways - or perhaps should I say days..........

Using Sonos is so easy it’s not worth wasting words on, (hardest part was getting it out of the box).

Let me give you a snapshot of what I’ve been up to with my new toy:

*Thursday:

Delicately unpack Sonos S5 and get started.  I don’t have a controller yet, I’ve installed the app on my PC. Or I could use an iPhone or iTouch as a remote for time being. All I have to do is pick a song and click play.

*Friday:

Move the S5 to the kitchen and check out radio stations Let’s see, we have NYC Radio 91.5, Heart London 106.2, Panjab Radio India, La Bomba FM Madrid or how about the Reno Police Department! I’ll stick with Hamish & Andy. Enjoying the digital age.

*Saturday:

Time to have a play and create my own random playlist - apparently I can queue up to 50,000 songs. Let’s see, we have The Beach Boys Christmas album- don’t think so. I’ll go Top 100 1999- that was a good year; Scar Tissue by the Chilli Peppers plays, (ok now I feel old). Makes the housework bearable.

*Sunday:

Take the Sonos S5 outside whilst gardening and plug into the garage Loving being able to create my own playlist-Baby Got Back, some Wham followed by Khe Sanh. Is it wrong to have a sudden craving for MMMBop?

*Monday:

Add Lady Gaga’s Remix album. Listening to Black Eyed Peas “Rock that Body”-note to self, find out what dance move the cabbage patch is. (Seriously, it’s in the lyrics).

All I need to decide now is whether to get those shoes I’ve had my eye on or buy the touchscreen remote. Stay tuned..... (Yes, I know it’s cheesy but appropriate)
