I'm a bit torn between a Sonos S5 and the Zeppelin Mini at the moment.  At the moment here in the US the S5 retails for $400 and the Zeppelin Mini can be had for $300.

I'm looking for a speaker tha will sound nice in a rectangular room of about 10ft by 12ft in size and that can play my music over a wireless network.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

If the S5 is the only Sonos equipment you buy then it will actually need to be wired to your router, unless you also buy the BR100 Zonebridge but obviously that's an additional expense, so unless you're intending to go multiroom soon I'd go for the Zeppelin.

Thanks Lhc, no intention of going multiroom yet, so Zeppelin Mini it is then.

Please understand I'm not making any comment about the audio capability of either device to fill the room you mention, merely the wireless capability and price considerations.
