Imagine Sonos listened and designed a product ‘just for you’. Imagine that there were no resource or prioritisation issues. Just for a moment. Ignore that there may be othernoptions out there already. You simply want a Sonos ‘one’. End of. What new device or service would you like to add to your Sonos system?
My starter for 10.
A HDMI connect or centre speaker type device that would allow the use of dedicated L/R speakers for wider separation and better (subjective I know) sound than a playbar provides. The ability to play high res codecs would be a bonus and even more so Atmos (ignore technical issues with speaker placement). Basically something like the Heos AVR or what many speculated the beam was going to be (updated Playbar) but on steroids.
No agenda behind the question other than curious what other would like the system to be able to do. Given the cost of the Playbar, I’d happily pay north of that for such a device.
Second on the list would be an ‘upscale’ Play 5. Call it the Play:X - only objective would be to have a better sound performance. Need not be more ‘powerful’, just better sounding, and with a more premium finish. I know there’s the option for connect (i’ve considered getting one for use with active speakers), but the simple option of having just a pair of speakers with no sub, no cable converters etc appeals. Think of a ‘works with Sonos’ Beolab 18. Only not quite as expensive
