First of all im not very tech-y so my apologies if this is obvious and ridiculous -
I've been searching and not finding an answer.
My Sonos system has been functioning fine since October - all of a sudden this past 2 weeks every single unit reboots randomly all at once for no reason apparent to me .
Anyone else experience this and have a solution?

I doubt they're fully rebooting, but they could be reconnecting. If the system's using the WiFi ('Standard Setup') then the router could be temporarily dropping its wireless signal.
Thank you - I'm checking into the wireless - does it make sense that it just started doing this now? Is there a better way to do things ?
It would make sense if your router had started acting funny.

It would make sense if your neighbours have a shiny new router, or something like like a baby alarm, providing interference.
Use a wifi mapper app on your phone to check out the general wifi environment.

Can you run an Ethernet cable to any of your Sonos devices, that would eliminate the WiFi portion of your router from the issue.

Use a WiFi mapper as suggested above and pick the quietest channel for your Sonos network.
