Once again the Sonos controller update on my Aple M.2 Mac mini/Ventura OS has caused the controller to lose access to the music library. The music library’s access location has not changed amd I’, cross as hell at the prospect of updating the iTunes library details for this witless controller. So I am playing my music to my Sonos 3 and 5 speakers by using Apple Airplay on my iPhone. Why the heck do I keep the Sonos Controller when all I want to do is play music library tracks on the speakers and the darn controller keeps on losing access after the far-too-common updates? Come on Sonos. It’s been months since the Apple M2 Mini and Ventura were releassed. Get your act together.
I’m already using an Apple HomePod speaker in a second home where Sonos controller updates on a MacBook Air M.1/Ventura kept losing access to the MacBook Air’s music library. The HomePod’s sound quality is as good as the Sonos 1’s I’ve previously been using. That means I’ll get another AirPod there for stereo access, and Sonos loses the otherwise dependable Sonos 1 speaker pair upgrade.
If this controller issue isn’t fixed I’ll get pairs of HomePods for my main home and Sonos will lose the Sonos 3 and 5 upgrades there as well. Then it will lose the Playbar TV speaker update and so on. I’m utterly furious about this issue and refuse to reset the controller’s music library details; removing the current liubrary and adding a new one which references the exact same iTunes library as before. It’s simply too frustrating to keep on doing this. Enough already. Get your darn act together or lose me as a customer.
And, I suspect, I’m not alone.
