Sonos is a company that develops wireless, digital music streaming players. This digital music player can be used all over the house and started supporting RealNetworks’ Rhapsody as of last September. And Sonos also recently signed a deal with Pandora as well.
Sonos’ Digital Music Systems have the ability to read music from network hard drives and URLs and play it.
Recently Sonos raised $6 million in Series B funding from BV Capital and several other investors. This adds on to the $32 million Series A funding that Sonos already raised. Of the $32 million Series A, BV Capital accounted for $10 million of it.
Sonos is hyper-competitively chasing after other music players like the Microsoft Zune and Apple iPod and by signing deals with online music companies, it only whets the appetite for technology geeks even more.
