Father’s Day Idea: Sonos is Music to My Ears

lifestylehobbies-me time

Have you ever discovered a new product that, after using it, you wonder how you ever managed to live without it? That was my reaction to the Sonos Wireless HiFi System. And there is more than one reason to love it. For starters, it not only plays music, but you can add speakers to any or every room in your home...wirelessly. As in, plug the power cord into the wall and you’re good to go. The folks at Sonos take the KISS principle seriously.

Controls from my iPhone

My favorite feature is that I control it from my phone, tablet, or PC anytime, anywhere. If I would like Mozart playing in the living room and Billy Squire jamming in the family room, I can control it with the touch of a button on my phone. (DISCLAIMER: The Billy Squire reference was for illustrative purposes only. I wouldn’t really listen to Billy Squire. Bon Jovi, maybe. Definitely not Billy Squire.)

And then there’s the sound quality. This isn’t your grandmother’s sound system. This is crisp and clear auditory bliss. Plus, I'm one of those guys who likes to feel his music as much as hear it—one time my music shook a clock off the wall (a story for another time)—and my Sonos system passed that test as well. I can play songs from my iTunes collection, stream from Pandora, Rhapsody, or Spotify, or listen to live radio from hundreds of radio stations in virtually every country around the world. The Sonos Wireless HiFi System has changed the way I listen to music in my home. For Father’s Day, I’m hoping for Sonos speakers for my garage, patio, and many other rooms in my house. Actually, this might take a few Father's Days to get them all.

If Sonos is something you think the father in your home would enjoy, be sure to visit Target before June 9 to take advantage of their exclusive in-store promotion: a free wireless bridge with purchase of a Play:3 or Play:5 music system.

What are some other Father's Day gift ideas for tech savvy dads?

I was sponsored by Sonos for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
