We have a Sonos One with inbuilt Alexa in the lounge. we both find the Alexa side of it very poor, love the sound though. Quite often we have to shout commands at it, its not our dialect, as we have tried it out with various members of the family. I have a Amazon Alexa Dot 3rd gen which works perfectly, i have been thinking if i could switch off the Alexa in the Sonos One and use the Amazon Alexa dot to control the speaker. Later on i planned to add another SL speaker for Stereo ( when i see Sonos Special Price offers.  ) Would all this work ? and is it easy to do.
