Hi Folks, newbie here,
I recently bought a Sonos Play 5 Gen 1, due to budget and the headphone socket. I live in a nursing home bedroom large buy nursing home standards. After resetting the speaker, it found my 4G wireless broadband 1st time and connected 1st time:) The sound has blown my Apple Homepod out of the water with all types of music! I have Apple Music and Sonos Radio; the S1 controller is version 11.2. Sadly I was put off Sonos for a long while by their support saying their speakers would not work with mobile broadband. Mine does and the sound is better than any speaker heard at a reasonable cost bar the large floor standers I used to own.
I don't know how long it will last or how long the software will allow it to play. It came boxed with all original leads and I have turned off background refresh on the app. I am listening to Sonos Radio Jazz Journeys as I write and the sound is stunning. I have deliberately not set up any voice control.
All that remains is for me to thank you all for a wonderful community and to say I wish I had taken the Sonos plunge earlier:).
