Sonos Has Plans For Home Theater

Sonos, the company well known for its multi room music systems, has confirmed that it will soon be making a move towards the home theater.

Thomas Cullen, co founder of Sonos, spoke on the current state of home theater systems with a fairly simple question "Why is Home Theatre so complicated?"

With countless different connectors found on amplifiers today, it’s no wonder he’s looking for a solution. While the project is still in the natal stage, Cullen, in a conversation with Pocket Lint, did comment on a simple audio solution "We could pull the audio out via an Ethernet connection and make it better"

While they do plan on bringing something to market as early as two and a half years from now, no solid plans are yet in place. Curiously, they appear to have no desire to work with video, which seems like the next logical step.
