So about 3 years ago I bought a CONNECT for the sole purpose of CONNECTing my vinyl player to the rest of my large sonos system. Mind you this was at the suggestion of Sonos themselves, this is the recommended way to CONNECT audio components to a Sonos system. I paid full retail for this $400 item to CONNECT to my system.
So answer this for me, if this will be considered a “legacy” device and will have to live on a separate network in order for the rest of my system to get updated… will it have any value to me at all? I literally only use this to CONNECT audio components to the rest of my system.
The problem goes deeper, say I swallow this mess and upgrade to the new Connect…. I currently have several Play:1’s and Play: 3;s which no doubt will be considered “legacy” in the coming year(s)…. so at that point I will have the separate problem, a shiny new CONNECT which in fact will not CONNECT to the rest of my system (if I want it to stay updated)…. This truly is the end of Sonos if they cannot figure out a way to allow “legacy” devices to play with new devices, while allowing “new” devices to stay current.
