March is almost over and it’s been a fun month, and just a tad more relaxed than I expect in April. A little down time is welcome, and it’s certainly easy to hibernate when the weather is not so hot out. There has still been a lot to do though, and this weekend would have been a lot busier if I’d been able to make the Juno Awards, but I’ll be watching the festivities from Toronto.
Good food and great music go together like best friends, and this holiday season Sonos has a new way to make your parties extra festive by inviting your guests to supply the music. Sonos calls it a Playlist Potluck, and recently I had a chance to experience it first-hand with Notable founder Julian Brass, who hosted the party, and Eatertainment’s Sebastien Centner catering the special event.
Later today, at 1:00 PM (ET), Sonos.com will launch a limited edition version of their speakers: the Sonos Play:1 Tone, which the company has dubbed “[a]n expression of Sonos sound and design in the purest form.”
Father’s Day is just around the corner, but there’s still time to get dad the gift that keeps on giving with a few luxury items that will put a big smile on his face. Whether he loves coffee, premium audio, cognac or champagne, or he needs a new shaving routine, we’ve got you covered.
The GATE and Sonos want you to dive into the sounds of Canadian Music Week with a special giveaway for a Sonos Play:1 wireless Hi-Fi speaker and two tickets to CHUM FM FanFest this Friday, May 8 at the Grand Ballroom, Sheraton Centre in downtown Toronto.
Sonos is helping their customers cut cables with a software update that now allows their speakers to work without any additional hardware, like the Sonos Bridge, and without wired connections.
