I already have a Sonos Playbar and have an interest in a Sonos One. However, I have zero interest in subscribing to a music service. I have thousands of my own tracks of music which resides on my NAS. From bits I have been reading on this forum am I to assume that I will not be able to say for example 'Alexa' play Sgt Pepper, at which point Alexa will be able to access my music library on the NAS and play said track?
Secondly, I also like local radio (UK). If I say Alexa play Radio X will the Radio X local radio channel then start to play through the One?

Ah! so I could ask Alexa to access my favourite radio station, but the only way to play personal music from my NAS is to queue a selection of songs in the Sonos app first then get Alexa to play the entire queue, is that correct?
Sort of. You would initiate the queue from the Sonos app, then basic controls like Pause, Resume, Skip, Previous, and Volume Up/Down will work on the queue via Alexa. You can even ask "Alexa, what is playing?" and she will tell you the name of the track. But at this time, there is no facility for you to say "Alexa, play Stevie Wonder Songs in the Key of Life from My Library in the Kitchen".
