While there are a number of wireless home theater surround sound solutions out there, most are hobbled by line-of-sight requirements and still only manage passable auditory performance. So I’d welcome higher-end and more thoughtfully designed competition from an upcoming Sonos solution. And while we don’t know exactly what’s in the works at this point, it seems obvious something is currently under development given this Sonos job opening:
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.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.
