Is Wireless Surround Sound Next for Sonos?

Sonos is hiring a senior product manager, home theater sound to "re-invent home theater sound for the digital age"


Sonos, the company that brought us one of the best whole-house wireless music systems ever, seems to be eying the home theater market.

The company is hiring a senior product manager, home theater sound.

From the Careers section of Sonos.com:

Sonos is looking for a successful, experienced home entertainment product leader to help us re-invent home theater sound for the digital age. We are looking for someone with a passion for home theater sound who wants to drive new concepts into a shipping reality.

You will lead the product vision and lead new product creation teams. You will create and evangelize new home theater products and drive them through development. If you are passionate about music and movies, you’ll quickly see that this is a tremendous opportunity to shape the future of connected home entertainment. Take a look at our recent products – including the S5, our recently announced iPad app, and our expanding suite of supported online music services – then help us create what’s next.


If Sonos is getting into the wireless surround sound business … Booya!

Plenty of solutions exist today, but none has the cachet of Sonos.

Perhaps, the new senior product manager will help to create something like these Sonos-powered speakers that never made it to market.

Looking for a really cool job in the streaming audio market? The Sonos job calls for someone with an “affinity for and knowledge of home theater, digital music, and streaming content.”

The position is based in Cambridge, Mass. or Santa Barbara, Calif.

Great!  Another proprietary device that wont talk to anything else.  Just what our industry needs!

John. True. Sonos needs to focus on making their products controllable from other devices. I dont see the big deal. Sonos wouldnt lose money. They are not making money by allowing an iPhone or iPad control their products.So whats the deal? Crazy policy.

i hope they code “Airplay” into the sonos…

While it does make for an interesting crossover, the idea that friends can come around and play “their” music on the sonos would be pretty cool.
