Amazon's Cloud Player is a means of taking your music with you wherever you go. Amazon lets users upload to the cloud, and will automatically add any CDs, or MP3s that they buy to their catalogue.

One in the cloud the Amazon music files can be accessed through devices including the PC, the iPhone, iPad, Kindles and Android devices.

"Our goal is to enable customers to enjoy all their music, wherever they are, and on any device," said Amazon VP for Digital Music Steve Boom.

"Launching on Sonos today in the UK, following the success of Amazon Cloud Player for Sonos in the US, is an important part of that strategy."

The Sonos system lets people play music wirelessly across their home. Of course it is as happy as Amazon about the news.

"We are excited to broaden our partnership with Amazon to offer Amazon Cloud Player to customers in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy and Spain." said Sonos CEO John MacFarlane.

"This supports our mission of giving you access to all the music on earth and the ability to wirelessly stream it throughout your home in Sonos HiFi sound."

"We're excited to bring Amazon Cloud Player for Sonos to our customers in the UK, giving them a great solution to store their music in the cloud and then stream it everywhere in their homes," added Amazon EU Media Digital Music director Steve Bernstein. µ
