What’s the one thing everyone wishes Sonos would add to its best-in-class wireless music system? Yup, it’s obviously Bluetooth streaming. Sonos supports more streaming music sources than any other wireless speaker system on the market, but the lack of Bluetooth means there are some music sources that will never be supported. Well, they’ll never be supported unless you buy this simple $14 accessory, that it. The Mpow Bluetooth Receiver costs just $14 on Amazon, and you can plug it into the aux-in jack on your Sonos Play:5, Sonos Connect, or Sonos Connect:Amp to instantly add Bluetooth music streaming support to every speaker of your Sonos system.
