Thanks for sharing.
Sonos goes bankrupt! What then?
I'm looking at the possibility of setting up a Sonos surround system upstairs and downstairs as well as Play:5's for music in different areas of the house. This is a lot of money. My concern these days with technology is that it seems to have a shelf life of max 5 years and then it is considered throw away. You used to be able to buy a expensive set of speakers that would keep their quality sound for 20 years. To prove this, all you have to do is go to any high end stereo store that sells old high end systems. Amazing sound! I'm in the financial industry and I've learned over the years that even the good companies don't always last. Their products though should still be usable. What I would like to know, if Sonos, for whatever reason, goes bankrupt. What is the implication for my system? I know that there would no longer be any updates for the software, but would the system still function as it did at the moment that Sonos no longer existed? I tried searching this on the
Currently the Sonos can be integrated with Alexa. There are plans for including Google Home an I even seen plans for integration with Siri. Are there any plans to integrate with Mycroft (https://mycroft.ai/) as well? I would be greatly interested in this integration as my recorded data will not be stored on a server and it is not used/sold for marketing purposes. In addition their new speaker with a display would be a great addition to the Sonos line as well. Anyone who would support these features here on the community? Kind regards, Frank
Setting up new speakers with a second network
I am trying to set up new speakers at my second home using the same app I use for my main home. Can someone provide me with assistance? I am teying to connect a beam and two 2 play 1. I want to use it as a center and two fronts. When i turn on my app, it recognizes the wifi at my second home. I tried to add these speakers to this by clicking on more options. On there, it gives me an option to add another sonos system. After clicking here, it gives me an option to sign in or create an account. I chose to sign in and followed the prompts. When it comes to the part where I need to push the button on the back, this initially flashes red or orange then eventually solid red or orange. Not sure what to do from here. Thank you.
Sonos and Google Home
Love the Sonos gear and ease of use. It just works, and that's all anyone could ask for - almost. :-D Here is a feature request - I'm asking for Google Home and Sonos be integrated to work together. I'll not be using Alexa, so that won't help. Google tech covers much ground and is quite a bit ahead of Amazon - IMHO.
Sonos ONE’s stereo pairing with SUB
Hi everyone, im pretty new in this community here. Been reading and eyeing on new updates always and often wish there are newer ones. I’ve been a sonos lover since 2016 yet unfortunate enough to afford any of them. Been saving up my penny as much as I could to purchase one of them. Initially, my favourite is always the PLAY 5 (Gen 2) as I just want them in my bedroom and some nice stereo surround. Im no audiophile or whatsoever but i do enjoy good music and watching movie. So, basically Im based in Melbourne and been to few general stores like jbhifi and myer to test out how these bad boy sounds. Unfortunately my surroundings are always too noisy and distracted therefore I cant really determine how good the PLAY 5 would be. I was comparing it to the BOSE soundtouch 30 to be honest as most my mates do own BOSE and make me to get them instead of SONOS. Alrighty, here we go. So, one fine day i decided to search up for some personal stockist that sells SONOS, BOSE, B&O and etc. I fi
Why should I be forced to update controller software
Am I the only one getting fed up with the Sonos policy of forcing updates whoever they feel like it. I am an intermittent user and have a couple of old iPads that I use as controllers. Now it appears that I Can't use them until their software is updated. All I want is a basic and stable system that operates when and as I need it. Unless I want all the extra features I don't see why I should have to waste so much of my time Grrrrr!
Apple dictates that all new apps must fully support the iPhone X screen
For those who can’t quite seem to grasp why Sonos can’t support older versions of iOS. Apple’s policies dictate. Sonos must play by Apple’s rules. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/02/apple-dictates-that-all-new-apps-must-fully-support-the-iphone-x-screen/

Bose Discontinuing Soundtouch
Was in BB the other day, checked the Bozo display. Noticed it had been completely updated, yet again. After three... three!!! generations of their miserable Soundtouch multi room system, they’re finally throwing in the towel. It must have been a very expensive mistake. The death is confirmed over on their forum. https://community.bose.com/t5/SoundTouch-Speakers/Deezer-HIF-on-Bose-amp-Bose-is-stopping-soundtouch/m-p/151902#M69961 :D
