    [Retail] Sonos' Wireless Dock for iDevices: Simple and Sweet
    My Docked iPod Can Stream to My Sonos Speakers The retail price for the wireless dock is $119 , so it's not the cheapest peripheral ever, but it's a solid add-on for existing Sonos equipment owners, and the device is polished enough to have been made by Apple itself. The last year has forever changed the way I consume and enjoy music. The addition of Spotify to my life (and soon the rest of you in the US) made iTunes a vestigal program good only for synching iPad apps. It's simple, small, and sounds great. But that didn't make the experience any worse for the wear. No CD slot.
