Is anyone experiencing drop outs from their system?
This could be due to your player being to close to other Wi-Fi enabled products within your property.
SONOS have been made aware and also alerted that their products are NOT the only products on the market that need a WI-FI source.
They have also been made aware that they need to make the system made more compatible with other WI-FI enabled products.

Well that's good of you to make them aware of some basic laws of physics, although you'd think they'd have known about that and been telling people to ensure there's a minimum space between your Sonos devices and other wireless sources for years now. Oh, wait, they have been telling people that. For years. YEARS!

Welcome to the community, kdm1965. Thank you for alerting other community members of this. We do make every effort to inform our customers as to this rather rudimentary principle but appreciate the reinforcement. If I may add one thing: It is important to note that Sonos components being susceptible to WiFi interference is neither product-specific, nor an issue of compatibility. Any device that relies on a connection with your home WiFi in order to maintain its function is going to struggle if it is impeded in this way. Sonos being no exception to the rule. The day where we find a way to counteract WiFi interference altogether will be a victorious one for the entire industry. Please let us know if you have any further questions or remarks.

That day would also see physics turned on its head, since it would need to shift the dipole interaction of the water molecule to a different frequency band,

Meh, shouldn't take more than a couple of days!
