It would be very useful to have Sonos remember playback position for audiobook files. This is a setting in iTunes. Why can't this be implemented in Sonos? Supposedly this is implemented for aa files, but not all audiobooks are aa files, I have many in mp3, m4a and m4b format. If this can be done for aa, why not the other formats?

I just tried with my M4B (DRM free) audiobook collection and it can play but does not remember position. Remembering position for audiobooks is an essential, really would love to see this feature added.

Hi, all. I can certainly see the merit in this and can understand it is rather essential to audiobook playback. I'll be sure to pass along the suggestion for you. Let us know if you need anything else.
