I have a mix of new and old devices currently all running on single S1 system.
Now I find that if I want to add a new device such as the FIVE I can’t.
I have a Play:5 (Gen 1) that lowers the volume without me doing it. Randomly does this and I can not solve the issue.
So I thought just buy a new FIVE to replace it but if I stay on S1 I will be prevented from adding the new FIVE to my system.
But if I change to S2 so I can add the FIVE then 9 of my original devices will stop working on the same system which basically kills my entire system. (I first got SONOS with the CR100 controller, that is how old it is. They killed those off ages ago.)
So it seems this policy PROHIBITS me adding or replacing devices to my system and effectively STOPS me buying anymore of their products.
What a great business model, piss off your early adopters.
