Wolfgang's Vault and Sonos Get Close...

Although I don’t own a Sonos system, it’s something that I’ve considered purchasing several times in the past. Sonos’ wireless, multi-room music system keeps getting more tempting, too, by adding new features, including streaming services and an iPhone app.

Wolfgang’s Vault, on the other hand, I’ve been using for a while.  (In fact, you can find a couple of Gear Diary posts about it here and here.)  Drawing from the archives of the late Bill Graham, Wolfgang’s Vault contains decades of concert recordings from artists including Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, James Taylor, Bob Dylan, The Doors, Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Tom Petty, U2…  you get the idea.

Now Sonos and Wolfgang’s Vault have teamed up to offer more than 3500 concert recordings available for streaming through Sonos’ S5 system.  The Sonos controller can be used to search the WV library by artist, song, or genre.  The Sonos S5 system also streams music from other services/software, including iTunes, Rhapsody, Pandora, and SIRIUS.

Using WV through Sonos is available as a free 30-day trial.  After that, subscribing to Wolfgang’s Vault through Sonos will require a $48 annual membership.
