Will adding a sonos boost help me ?
I have beam + x2 play 1's in living room, x1 play 1 in hallway, x1 play one in dining room, x1 sonos 1 in the bedroom upstairs. Beam is connected via ethernet cable to a powerline adaptor in the living room (so effectively hardwired to my router if I understand that correctly). All my speakers are showing status WM 0. My broadband connection into my house is fairly poor, (getting around 2.5 - 4 Mbps) plus my house has quite a lot of thick stone walls which impairs wifi range (hence the powerline adaptor). My sonos speakers are placed such that they should all be in range of at least one other speaker in the network however.
I get quite a lot of dropout of music and often difficulty grouping speakers together.
Does it matter which order the speakers were added to the network ?
Would adding a sonos boost enhance reliability or does having the beam wired in effectively achieve the same thing ?
