There are a few things which need to be added to this app immediately (read on for my questions):
First, different model speakers need to be able to be grouped in the same room. Sonos apparently claims that this is to prevent sound quality issues. We have some rooms with multiple of the same speaker and some rooms with multiple of different speakers and the sound quality difference that I can discern is precisely zero. Context - we have on the third floor a large room multiple play1 speakers. To stream directly to that room, I added a sonos one (which you have to do, because the system won’t allow you to stream directly to a play1). To my utter annoyance, you can’t pair these two different types of speakers to work together. So is it because of sound quality issues or just because sonos hasn’t bothered? If it is because of some imperceptible phantom drop in sound quality, allow me to confirm after exactly no market research that no one cares about that s***.
Second, there needs to be an iOS widget and an Apple Watch app. At this price point, this should be self-explanatory.
This besides the issue of certain rooms skipping horribly at times. As I can already see this being blamed on our wifi, which I have had checked, I’d like to ask if this system was designed to work in a house - with walls - or just in an open field somewhere? I also do have the subnet thing set up where a main speaker is hardwired into the router.
I don’t mean to over-dramatize this but we are 13 speakers and thousands of dollars into this system and at this price point, is it too much to ask to have someone write the code for that option into the app? PRETTY PLEASE.
Normally I just overlook these (admittedly small) annoyances because the sound quality is amazing and the experience worth the hassle. I also realize that in the grand scheme of things none of this s*** matters but c’mon, throw me a bone here.
