I have a 3 x play:1 speaker music system which works fine for me. I can get my favourite radio stations and I’m connected to my digital record collection from my 2 WD Mycloud hard drives that sit on my home network. My Play1’s are generation 1 speakers so there’s no Alexa or google assistant and that’s fine as I don’t use the assistant I have on my Firestick. I have noticed over the past few months that Sonos is gradually pushing my system into oblivion with the announcement that they would no longer upgrade “legacy” products and that’s fine too as they work perfectly well at the moment and as the say “ if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” but with software upgrade from S1 to S2 recently I find that I can now only control my system with my iPad as my old, but still in use, iPhone 5c phones can’t upgrade to the require iOS of 11+. I wonder when I will have to bin my speakers as they can’t be upgraded and I won’t be able to control them if they could.
Sonos please make any future upgrades backward compatible or an optional install so people like me who invested in your system years ago can still use the systems we’ve grown to love.
