Sonos ZonePlayer S5

 

If you aren't deterred by the Sonos ZonePlayer S5's unique set-up requirements, you'll be hard-pressed to find an all-in-one system that sounds better...

Can expand into a multiroom system, glorious sound, accesses many online music sources

When used alone it must be connected to your router
