    Not that I know of.

    There is an app but it won't control your system, it's proprietary to a Sonos music system. A friend of mine bought one and loves it.

    I'm checking out the Sonos Play:5 right now. Looks like you can use your XOOM or other Android tablet or phone to avoid having to buy their controller. (@$300!). Pretty slick. I might dedicate my nook color so that my Xoom is freed up for other things, but I really like the possibilities. Anyone else doing something like this?

    I have been looking at Logitech too. Good to know that our XOOM can control both. Have you compared the sound quality between the Squeeze box and the Sonos? And, can you play music that you have stored on your xoom? (I'm thinking that it should be able to control the device and share music with it at the same time, right?)

    Wood, I probably won't be much help because I play music from my server drive using wifi. I'm assuming you could use your xoom as the server drive if that's possible on the xoom end (rooting or something). I have the small squeezebox which is portable and has great sound for such a small box. Also have the squeezebox touch. Both play from server.

    You can connect the xoom to the SBox and play it like an mp3 player of course but I'm sure you're asking if it can be done wirelessly.


    eta: Logitech recently put out their own droid remote control app for the Sboxes. I still prefer Squeezedroid, but there are at least 4 other remote control apps out there that work just as well.

    Sorry I haven't heard the Sonos but I know they are great systems.

    I've never been able to get this to work. It says "loading" but nothing ever plays on my Xoom. I just tried it again. I probably don't have all the steps correct.
