The best just went nuclear. Sonos has carved out a reputation for good audio-streaming products, but how does the new ZP80 fare in comparison to the Sonos of old?

Slimmed-down Sonos: ZonePlayer ZP80
With its ZP80 bundle, Sonos has done what fans of its highly regarded multiroom Digital Music System have requested all along: ditched the built-in amp of the ZP100, added digital audio outputs, and lowered the price. The recent Rhapsody integration is the icing on the cake.
This system has been updated. Click here to see the updated version.
The BU130 will combine a Sonos ZP100, ZP80, and CR100 for $1,000. Separately, a new software update will add compatibility with the Pandora online music service to all Sonos products.
This, the original Sonos Digital Music System, is still a very slick solution for affordably distributing your music throughout your house. But if you already count an amplifier or an A/V receiver as part of your existing music system, the ampless Sonos ZP80 bundle is a better bet.
