I have owned 4 Sonos speakers for several years. And I really like their sound. But I’m becoming more and more worried about the increased control and intrusion that comes with each update.
Some time ago a login became mandatory in order to setup my system. As far as I can recall, this was not required when I bought them. These are physical objects I bought. They’re mine. Why do I have to login to Sonos just to listen to my own music?
But now things became even stranger. When I now try to create a new system it forces me to provide my location explaining that this is needed to find my nearby speakers which is obviously not true.
Sonos is clearly interested in harvesting its customer’s data. Where is this heading? What will happen next?
Soon they may want to decide what kind of music I can listen to!
