Sonos is a networked multiroom hifi system not a computer speaker. Your complaint is like someone saying 'for $250,000 this Ferrari should be able to go off road".

This has been a deliberate policy from day 1 of Sonos, so the person to be fired would be the founder who created this multi-billion $ company from nothing.

If you really want it a BT receiver in a Play:5 line in will do it.
the ferrari is built for speed, which means low to the ground, which means it would suck at off road. this is a speaker, which could easily have bt as part of it. so... not really the same, but good effort! yer oddly adoring of this founder. thanks for the bt receiver, tho!

Sonos has never had an intention of being a Bluetooth solution. It has concentrated on an end of the market in which it saw a gap.

If you want a Bluetooth speaker buy one. But don't expect a company to change its operational plan to meet your perception.

The person who needs sacking is the one who lead you to believe Sonos would work with your computer. A bit of investigation would have demonstrated that this is not the case.
Look at the post history. Joined 11 months ago, claimed to have had the system 2 years at that time. So he's an owner for 3 years and is just now coming to the revelation that it's not a Bluetooth speaker?

Don't even bother, just move along.
