I’m currently on Sonos version 7.1. Haven’t used my system for a while and am now wondering whether to upgrade to S1 11.2.4?
- Sonos Connect ZP90, digital out to HiFi system
- music files in iTunes library
- macOS El Capitan planning to upgrade to Mojave, possibly Catalina shortly.
- mainly using desktop controller version 7.1 as interface, iPhone (iOS 13) as remote only
Does anyone here think there are advantages staying at 7.1? Or is there a unanimous consensus that 11.2.4 is the better option?
Many thanks for your thoughts on this...

That's a big jump in versions, you might end up needing support from Sonos. You don't say how you think you will use the system but if it will be much the same as before why not wait and see if you need to.
Sonically nothing should have changed that will improve the digital output. The desktop controller has lost most of its capability to manage the system like adding new speakers
You will probably need to add a password to your Sonos account which you have forgotten you have got.
On the reasons to update there may be some services that you can now get that were not available back then. A trawl through the Sonos update page will identify most of these.
