So the update today has given me cause to renew my absolutely awful relationship with TruePlay. I’ve had Sonos gear for a couple of years. Every time I have tried to use TruePlay has been an absolute nightmare. 9/10 tunings sound utterly awful, like truly terrible, thin, sibilant, metalic.
I have to go through all sorts of contortions, scanning parts of the room and not others, different devices until finally I get something passable. And even then I ALWAYS have treble set to -10 and would go lower if I could.
These are expensive speakers. TruePlay almost ruins them. I am not alone in this. A bit of googling uncovers others with the same issue. I just can’t understand how Sonos can accept such an erratic EQ as the only EQ option apart from a simple bass/treble.
It could be remedied quite easily. Either a better EQ (6 bands would be enough) and let us choose manual EQ instead of TruePlay. Or at least give us some trueplay options, that is, let us choose say TruePlay warm, Trueplay crisp, TruePlay vocal etc.
TruePlay can never work as a one-size-fits-all EQ. We all have different preferences for how we like our music/TV to sound.
