Sonos announces wifi boost product

Share

If you’ve got a Sonos wireless music system, chances are you’ll both swear by it, but also worry about the wifi signal – especially if you live in a built up area. Which is presumably why Sonos has today announced the “Sonos Boost” signal booster.

The Boost plugs directly into your router and will apparently amplify the wireless signal to your sonos system by “up to 50% greater range” – it comes with three internal antennas to minimalise signal interference, which might normally cause drop-outs.

This comes a couple of months after Sonos released a software update, removing the requirement for a wired bridge – in a sense, the Boost seems like a good replacement for the Sonos Bridge for difficult circumstances.

The Boost is available now for $99 in the States, and £79 in the UK.

Update (17:44): Added the UK price.
