My current Sonos network contains Boost, two Play 5 Gen 1, one Play 3, two Connects. All speakers are in separate rooms and I am thinking of adding a Gen 2 to the network. Will the mixed Gen 1 and Gen 2 environment cause any problems?

Hi Balford,

You can have a first generation PLAY:5 on the same system as a second generation one with no issues. You can even group the 2 speakers together. As they have significantly different sounds and hardware, you can't create a stereo pair from a generation 1 and generation 2 speaker.

Awesome! Thanks for the quick response. Purchase of Gen 2 starts now.
