Got a chuckle from this interview. What Sonos has been doing for the past 10 years is An "emerging trend"? Is this guy really that clueless?

What do you think are going to be the next big trends in audio over the next year?

Great question. There seems to be an emerging trend of multi-speaker audio that can be assigned zones within the home. It’s still early, but we’re excited to see what direction this goes in over the next few months.

Much before the internet I was taught - paper does not refuse ink - as a caution to understand that a lot of rubbish gets printed and not to rely on the printed word. The net has magnified this multifold.
To be fair though, what Sonos was doing was a mystery to me till a few years ago. I had noticed the write ups with two little boxes pictured, along with the CR unit, but had no idea how to put them to use at my home. I suspect that understanding Sonos became a lot easier for most people when the play units were launched a few years ago.

Just because Sonos has been doing it for years is irrelevant. It IS an emerging trend. :rolleyes:
If you feel that the amount of systems recently released and to be released is not a trend that's emerging and growing, just because Sonos have done it for years, then that's strange,

In fact, Nyrius is kind of a competitor to Sonos, selling Bluetooth and WiFi audio and video equipment. Of course they will not recognize that a competitor has been doing "multi room audio" for a decade now.
That's not an interview, or even an article. That's a PR piece for their gear. Would be awesome if there were a comments section. 😃
