Sonos S5

We’re in the middle of a harsh winter — with a Sonos/Twonky Wireless Music System there’s one less reason to leave your living room. In this week’s giveaway, two winners can outfit their home with a connected digital music setup, courtesy of Twonky. The bundle’s valued at $539. This is what it includes:

• Sonos S5 stereo high-performance wireless music system ($399.00)
• Twonky Lifetime License ($19.95)
• Linksys E3000 Wireless Router ($101.00)
• Set of Cat 5 Cables ($20.00)

If you’re unfamiliar with Twonky, its media beaming software for PC, Mac or mobile phone that finds all your digital media collections, allowing you to send content from the computer to any Web-connected device wirelessly. (The beaming technology frees your media from being stuck on the PC or smartphone: You can send content to any Web-connected device and enjoy your music, video and photos anytime/anywhere with drag-and-drop technology.) It enables Web-connected devices (of any type/brand) to communicate with one another, making it easier for you to manage and share content — e.g., play music on your Sonos S5 in the kitchen, drag and drop a YouTube clip onto the Samsung TV in your bedroom, upload new photos to the Kodak digital frame in your dining room, etc. (If you live in a one-bedroom apartment, get inventive.)

Two (2) winners will each receive the bundle and be fully equipped to send audio wirelessly. To be eligible to win, all you have to do is be a fan of Stereogum on Facebook, and submit a comment on this post with the first album you plan on playing on your wireless system. You must log-in via Facebook Connect (do not use your ‘Gum user account on this post — we’ll have to be able to check if you are a fan of Stereogum on FB when the sweepstakes ends). We’ll pick a winner from the comments posted here, at random. Deadline to enter is in two weeks: 2/10 at 5:30PM EST. Have your comment logged by then, and you’re in. (This particular giveaway is only open to U.S. readers.)
