No bandwidth problem.
Don't you think? Yea everyone wants something for free these days it appears.
Flac HD need about 5/6Mbps. I can play full HD movie on my wifi (~25Mbps) => this what I call "no bandwidth problem".
Ok guys. Understood. No more suggestions.
This is a deal breaker. My desktop system is an Audio Engine DAC with AE5 speakers. It powers the music in my family room and sounds better than any of the Sonos speakers being sold. The last thing I want to add is another device (like the Connect) to run everything through. The app doesn't have to be free. t would happily pay for a software solution. Until then, I don't see the point of paying for Sonos speakers
I have 8 Play 1's through out my house including a connect amp for the backyard. I just opened the software on my pc for the first time in maybe a year (i totally forgot i installed it since i control from my phone). I opened it on Windows because I expected Sonos on my desktop speakers to work with the Sonos speakers throughout the house. This wasnt the case and it's disappointing!!! So bummed out and this is a no brainer! I may switch to the Microsoft Cortana Harman Kardon device that comes out this year. It has smart voice integration to connect with all smart home devices, plus it will work my xbox one, my laptop, and desktop. If only Sonos had smart home integration too, like Alexa via Wink Hub and Ring doorbell.
Any device that can play Spotify has the hardware necessary to implement this feature. So this is a software feature that Sonos can implement any time they'd like. It's hard to figure why wouldn't implement a feature that helps keep customers on their ecosystem everywhere they play music.
