A Sonos Music System has revolutionized the musical life of producer/director Barry Sonnenfeld. "It may be one of the electronic devices I can't do without," he writes in Esquire. What a Sonos can do:

  • It streams music wirelessly throughout the house, sending different tunes to different stereos in different rooms. Yes, you read that right.

  • Through Sonos, each stereo can access music on your computer, MP3 player, online music subscription, or Internet radio station.
  • You can operate the system on your Apple iPhone or iPod Touch.
  • Type the name of a radio host into the controller and you'll hook up to that show on the next available radio station.
"You can't imagine how many of my friends are amazed," Sonnenfeld writes.
