802.11 AC compatibility with new Sonos Speakers (2020)

My current router is currently listed as one that Sonos has a compatibility issue, so I am looking to buy a new router.  However, I am unclear is the new speakers released earlier in 2020 are compatible with 802.11 ac routers.  All of the discussions on the community are dated a few years ago now and do not apply to the new speakers.  

A duel band router would have a 2.4 GHZ band, and i read they are backwards compatible but I want to confirm before buying. 

Does anyone know?

If your router isn’t on the incompatible hardware faq here and supports 2.4 GHz B/G modes it should work with Sonos.

No clue about the new 5 GHz stuff as I use SonosNet and keep my music off my home WiFi to avoid conflicts.
