Sonos has a new Play:5 speaker

Our new PLAY:5 brings together all of our learning from many years of hardware and software design and iteration. Smart to its core, its dipole array delivers an incredibly wide soundstage. An accelerometer recognizes which of its three orientations it’s in and adjusts the tuning to suit your listening style.

Bit more expensive than the old one (it’s now AUD$749, instead of $649) but looks nice. I look forward to hearing it.

They’re also doing some fancy new acoustic mapping thing using an iOS app, which I’ll report on when it arrives later this year.
