Quickly find and play the music you love with touch screen simplicity
- Integrated, multi-room control: Control what music is playing
in every room in your house, from anywhere in your house. Sonos Controllers

the music and the volume in all your rooms. Everything about the CONTROL –
from the touch screen display to the dedicated buttons – is carefully designed
to make finding and playing your music a snap.

performance of any networked music product on the market, thanks to SonosNet,

like most other wireless solutions. The Sonos Control also has multiple antennas
to provide great wireless performance.
