For this week’s Engadget Interview, veteran journalist J.D. Lasica interviewed John MacFarlane, CEO of Sonos, Inc., about the company’s soon-to-be-released digital music system, the state of home entertainment, and how to throw a wireless party.
Please give me the 30-second rundown on Sonos – what do you do, where are you located, when were you founded?
We’re in Santa Barbara, Calif., and Cambridge, Mass. We’ve been going at this for a little more than two years now. We’re a group of people with prior successful backgrounds who all enjoy music, and we all wanted a better way to experience music around the home.
How big is your staff?
We’re a little north of 50 people.
