Sonos is getting tangled up in the blues. The wireless speaker company is teaming up with legendary jazz label Blue Note Records to unveil the very limited edition Blue Note Play:1.
As you can see, the speaker features a unique and custom blue color that was obtained with both hand painting techniques and robots.
And theres a special station only for owners of the speaker. The Artists Selects channel will bring handpicked selections from some jazz greats like Robert Glasper, Jose James, Terence Blanchard, Don Was, and more.
Two other jazz-themed channels, Born in Blue and Blue Note 101, can be heard by all Sonos listeners now. They are also available through other devices, like your iPhone or iPad, via the TuneIn Radio app.
The speaker will retail for $250, and Sonos will announce more in the coming weeks when buyers can make their purchase. Only 4,100 models were made, so expect it to sell out quickly. For more information, visit the companys site now.
Ive purchased the regular edition of the Play:1 more than a year ago, and its been worth every bit of the $199 price tag. It offers a number of advantages compared to similarly priced Blueooth models. The Blue Note edition looks beautiful, and is a must-have for any fan of the jazz label.
