I am new to the Sonos game (as of this past year) and inept when it comes to “tech”. So far, I have been VERY happy with Sonos! All I have (atm) are 3 -Sonos One SL’s. 2 of which I have set up as a stereo set and 1 stand alone. I love the simplicity and sound quality. What I’m nervous about is all this talk of Sonos “bricking” my (soon-to-be) old equipment.
My plan was to invest heavily in more equipment over the next year or so. A Port x 2, Arc, Subwoofer, surround and outdoor alone looks like it will set me back around 4K or more. My question or point is this- will I/we regret this in the future as our equipment becomes outdated? It’s funny because at heart I am a cheap skate but I don’t have issues SPENDING on things I care about. But, when I spend REAL money on something I care about, I expect it will last.
-life expectancy of quality speakers 20-100 years!
-life expectancy of a Sonos purchase...TBD
I would LOVE to hear other people’s thoughts on the subject and hopefully I can figure out how to find this thread for any responses.
