I am a very long time SONOS customer with four distinct systems in four locations with over 30 devices. Almost all of these devices with become legacy in a month. Any new purchased SONOS products will cause incompatibility issues.
SONOS I know you are looking to the future but I hate to see you lose me as a customer because now any other player out there puts me in the same position you are. Two apps, two environments!
How about this for a solution to keep me and a ton of other SONOS users happy. Build a “New SONOS Bridge; A device that sits in the middle of a “SHARED” system and performs two simple tasks:
- Be a device that can be grouped from both the OLD and NEW environments
- Passes music between the two systems
If this would require this BRIDGE device to be wired to the network that is okay with me or that this device runs like the MOVE off the WiFi that would be fine with men.
Technically this seems like it should be pretty easy to do.
I would be willing to pay a reasonable price for a box to BRIDGE an environment to allow be to continue to buy SONOS products in the future.
If SONOS goes down the path it is going now, why wouldn’t I look at ALL wireless speaker options? I have to run two distinct apps either way.
Food for thought SONOS! Seems like a simple solution to retain and keep your installed customer base happy and almost ensure you installed customer base becomes your future customer base.
