Have set up the Sonos 1 using its standard setup (automatically added itself to my system) and updated software on my iPhone 7, Macbook Air (2018), and the Sonos apps running on these Mac devices.
Sonos Apps say I don't have a device that runs Airtunes 2 even though it sees my brand new Sonos 1.
Home app does not see new Sonos 1, and the device itself nor packaging have icons indicating they are Homekit compatible.
I read elsewhere that this is likely because my new Sonos 1 is part of a group or surround sound. I don't see an obvious way to determine if my new Sonos 1 has been linked to a group or surround sound. If I could see that, I would delete it and make it the input of audio to distribute to the other Sonos speakers.
What's the best way of making sure your new device is the new master device that will link to Airtunes 2 and the older devices will listen to it for signal?

I guess it was too long to read, but what I was saying was that I intended to buy a Sonos ONE but ended up with a PLAY:1 due to Best Buy being confused by which is which. And based on the packaging, you can see why there would be confusion.
