Pietje, you’re a genius. You saved me $600! My Play:5 went down just after buying my first Gen2 Sonos product so I thought it was a software problem. Just before giving up I found I could barely hear music at max volume, searched & found this thread, and replaced the same resistor. Back alive! I nearly ruined the solder pad on the PCB but managed to get it done.

I was lazy and didn’t replace any of the hot glue on the coaxial antenna connectors. I guess I should go back inside and do that given how much vibration they will endure.

Thanks again for sharing this solution!
