I bought 2 IKEA speakers to extend the sound in my room. This has already a Play 5. I thought I can add these IKEA speakers to the same room as the Play 5. But sadly it's not possible. After researching I understood that's possible to make a surround sound with the IKEA speakers and the Sonos Beam, Playbar or Playbase. If this is possible, why not on in combination with a Play 5? 🤯
I know I can group the speakers, but I use aux to get the sound from my tv to the Play 5. Every time I start my tv, I have to open the Sonos application on my phone and group them again. This is very annoying.
When I bought my first Sonos, I thought that te Sonos eco system is flexible and supports as much as possible. Now I bought two extra speakers and it's not possible to connect them to the one I already own. If you ask me, this is far from flexible and I'm very disappointed.
I hope there's an update very soon to fix this, or I have return my IKEA speakers
