Too much money to put at risk on future products.
I bought my pair of Play 5s in Sept 2014,
5 years and 4 months ago.
Then I added pairs of Play One and Play Three.
How was I to know that my Play 5s were already close to 5 years old technology when I bought them brand new?
I believe the Company is misleading the consumer when they sell retail products that are at risk of becoming legacy unsupported products in 5 years like what happened in my case.
I hope the CEO directs all efforts to software engineers to keep mixed systems of speakers functioning as a complete system.
In the future SONOS should plan on building in excess memory capacity in the speakers for updated programing and functionality and avoid the extremely dissapointing outlook the company has set forth for owners like me.
