So it seems the latest software update has create a lot of issues both hardware and software related, even before this latest one there were many issues with what seem like older hardware. Most of use older users seems to be felling this more and it seem as new hardware/software come available we are the ones that are suffering the most, (my personal observation). I know new technology will affect us older users but we should not be left out and what seems like is happening and will end up with bricked hardware that will no longer work, this is already happening.
Sonos, when released was an amazing product that gave us a complete new way to enjoy music. Along with many many sonos hardware I purchased at the time to fill my house with music, (I even went out and got a iPhone 3GS just to use as a NAS when the dock was released, and still use today) but lately I feel like us older uses are being thrown out for the new as more and more of use are finding that our trusted hardware is and will be not supported.
My point is and I know many other uses will fell this way as I have been very happy with my sonos experience up until quite recently, to now have and deal with the fact that many hardware/software will no longer be of use to us and we will have to face the very big possibility that new hardware will have to be purchased to continue we now have many other choices to be able to play music wirelessly throughout our homes it might be time to take a look at what else is out there, for me this is a very real possibility as time may come when to move on!
