1. Sonos Play 1 and Playbar


Sonos, the company that invented wireless audio systems that play music in multiple rooms and from multiple sources, has two new products. The new Play 1 ($200) is its lowest cost powered/connected speaker that’s simple to set up and can play the tunes on your computer, Pandora, Spotify, Internet radio and XM/Sirius, all controlled by an app on your iPhone or Android. The second product, the Playbar ($700), is designed to provide surround sound from your HDTV, as well as deliver the same audio content as their other products.
