With competition coming from the likes of Cisco/Linksys and Yamaha, Sonos looks to be making a bit of an upgrade to its multi-room audio solution. A new remote has been spotted by UK blog Automated Home, the first from Sonos that is a touchscreen model, instead of using a scroll wheel control.

The new CR200's interface borrows heavily from the one Sonos developed as an iPhone app; it retains the color display that the current model already offers. The controller does have dedicated volume buttons as well as a mute button and Home button. Its slightly different color scheme will be reflected in a new bundle with similarly hued player units.

Sonos hasn't officially announced the CR200, so there are no pricing or availability details as of yet. Both Cisco and Yamaha's solutions come with touchscreen remotes, so this can be viewed as a way to stay on par with the newer products, though Sonos may have more in store with the new players whenever they are introduced.
