What an excellent morning! I woke up, grabbed my phone, fired up the Sonos app and started blasting Adele’s 21 through my Sonos Play:5 Wireless HiFi Player.
That’s because today is the day I can now play my entire Murfie collection, wirelessly, in any room of my home. My CDs live in the cloud at Murfie and Murfie lets me stream that music to my Sonos player.
Here in Murfieland we’ve been working on this integration with Sonos for months now, perfecting and testing it. We’re jazzed to finally, and officially, announce our brand new Murfie + Sonos partnership. Murfie is now on Sonos’s list of compatible music services, joining the likes of Spotify, Pandora, and Rdio.
Now, we all know that peanut butter and chocolate are pretty darn tasty on their own. But like peanut butter + chocolate, Murfie + Sonos are even better together. With Murfie on Sonos, you too can play your entire CD collection in every room of your home, wirelessly.
Simply add our service (“Murfie”) to your favorite Sonos Controller app. It’ll ask you for your Murfie username and password and you’ll then have instant access to your Murfie music library on your Sonos system.
If you’re not yet a Gold member, that’s just fine. In fact, we have a pretty snazzy Murfie + Sonos offer for you. Sign up right now and get Murfie Gold gratis through April 30, 2013. You’ll have 24/7 access to our music streaming service on any web browser as well as on your Sonos player. Pretty cool, huh?! (It just got a heckuva lot easier to play your music anywhere :)
