I am currently running a Synology NAS with my music files on it. Since very few mesh routers (including my Orbi) have a usable USB port for an external hard drive, I was thinking (doesn’t hurt much), that it would be great if Sonos could incorporate a USB port on a Boost type device. That way I could get rid of the NAS and just attach a USB hard drive to it with my lossless music files to the network. It would be a win for me. Maybe for Sonos also?
The reason for this is that I still get dropouts when streaming from the NAS. Not always but often enough to have me post this. I have changed the Sonos network channel on many occasions from 1, to 6 and 11 with limited success. I have a Boost, 2 Play 1’s, a Sonos One, Sonos 5 and Play 3. My router is an Orbi wifi 6 system that has 2 satellites and Boost is plugged into the router. My wifi network is very robust yet the SonosNet is very much less so.
