Corsair is a large player in the PC market - SSD memory, USB drives power supplies, gaming peripherals, cooling and computer cases. Today Corsair announced having bought lossmaking Roomplayer manufacturer, Simple Audio. Corsair has a well built up distribution channels in the PC-enthusiast segment which I find bodes well.

You have to hand it to the guys at Simple Audio. They are hardly out of the blocks, with a system that still isn't bedded in, and they manage to take Corsair for millions.

First Slim Devices, now Simple Audio - Sonos must be p*ssing themselves laughing as they watch all their competitors commit suicide like this.
