Is THIS the future of home stereos?

iPodLounge has a rather in-depth look at the Sonos Digital Music System. While this particular system might not end up in your home entertainment cabinet, the Lounge ponders:

“Has Sonos developed the home stereo of the future? If we were betting, we’d say “yes” – at least, something very much like the company’s new Digital Music System will soon come to replace the oversized stereo components that have dominated home audio for decades. Given the success of the iPod, it seems only natural that hard disk-based music players will become more common, and they’ll be accessed using iPod-like menuing systems, existing speakers and headphones, and soon enough, wireless technologies.”
