I also want to listen to all the great music sources while working at my PC and don't always want to bother everyone else turning on the real speakers (I develop Windows software at home).
Please create a new "Play:Win" device that can be a Sonos "Room" which can send audio to any of the Windows Playback devices. E.G. headset, speakers, digital audio S/PDIF 5.1 etc. same as how a user can select audio playback output on a PC. You can build a Windows device driver to do this.
This way I can use my local USB headset and you don't need to come out with those wireless headsets quite so soon.
I don't want to have to also run WinAmp or Kodi or something to play my local FLAC files that I can already play via Sonos reading my NAS drive.
And I want to use the great features in the Sonos app for internet radio, playlists, favorites etc. which would be yet additional apps if I can use Sonos.
Please add a Play:Win device as part of the Sonos PC app.
You of course could also build Play:Android etc. but I sit at my PC all day and that one is top priority :D
Please consider this especially for the Windows PC.
Thanks for your consideration. This would set Sonos way above the emerging IP speaker crowd!

If speakers are built into the PC you could hook the connect to the MIC/Audio input of your PC to play Sonos sound - and from the audio out to play PC sound to other Sonos units.
How does the Connect not work for you?
