ATLANTA — Sonos came to the CEDIA Expo to add a wireless iPod/iPhone dock as a new music source for the company’s wireless multi-room-audio system.

The wireless dock is due in October at a suggested $119. Sonos systems features amplified and unamplified tabletop clients that stream music wirelessly from a PC and from the Internet.

With the dock, consumers could listen to their music libraries without booting up a PC or connecting a PC at all to the Sonos network, but a spokesman said some households would use both sources. The dock, for example, will enable friends to bring their music to a Sonos household for playback through a Sonos system.

The Sonos Wireless Dock is compatible with iPod Touch (first, second and third generation), iPod Classic, iPod Nano (third, fourth and fifth generation), iPhone 4, iPhone 3G S, iPhone 3G and iPhone.

Separately, Sonos launched its free iPad app to control Sonos systems via Wi-Fi.
