A while back I think that Sonos changed the recommended configuration. Previously, one or more units would be conned via Ethernet and the res via wifi. Now, that configuration seems robbed called Boost Mode and the standard mode is for all sonos units to be connected via wifi. Are there any pros/cons between these two modes?

Boost or Sonosnet mode is preferable, especially for systems over 3-4 units. Standard or WiFi mode was created to combat the complaint by competitors that Sonos was "inferior" due to the requirement of a wired component, when in reality the Sonosnet mesh is far superior to using your own WiFi.
As stated here, Sonos does recommend Boost setup over Standard setup for slow or crowded networks:
