Hi Paul,

Thanks for getting back to me. Please forward it to your team, then I’ll keep my fingers crossed. I really do think that a “sync volume” button would be a great addition to you system.

Have a great summer.

I’m not quite sure what functionality you’re asking for here.  By ‘sync volume’ do you want them to all be at the same level?  If so, what should the volume be set to?   If your mostly wanting the speakers to be at the same level, you could achieve this fairly easily in the app.  Using the master volume slider, set the volume to 0, that will get everything up.  Then the master volume will have all speakers at the same level as you move it up and down.

I have speakers all over my house and listen to different music at different volumes. So if I decide to group all speakers, they suddenly play at different volumes. Some too loud. And that is why I would like to have the option to “sync volumes” instead of turning the volume all the way down first on the master volume. Does that make sense?
