Question

Playing from local files, 'Music Library', can I stop Sonos removing 'The' and '&' from artists names?

This might seem like a minor thing - and yes, it is - but as a last.fm user it's actually pretty inconvenient. If you're unfamiliar with the service, it shows you statistics of your most played artists, etc. over time. You can hopefully understand that I don't want to have false artist names, like when Sonos reads my files with artist tag 'The Appleseed Cast' but only recognizes it as 'Appleseed Cast'. Is there a way to change this behavior so it just shows the original artist tag? Or at least send those tags to last.fm how they actually are?

Yes, I have seen that this has been asked before on this forum, but I'd like to bring it up again in hopes that this option could be added, as it seems like it could be a straight forward fix. As far as I know it is standard among music applications (foobar, iTunes, Musicbee, Poweramp, etc.) to show tags as they actually are.
