Update 1/24: do not recc. App needs support. So many issues for such an expensive product is unacceptable. Lacks functionality. Can't control volume unless you're in the app. Yesterday, every time I opened the app to control the music, it kept bringing me to a speaker that hadn't been in use instead of the active speaker. track time is often wrong: songs starting from the beginning but showing 0:25. Only providing treble and bass sliders is insufficient. Vol stabilization btw tracks is poor.

I LOVED MY SONOS PRODUCTS, BUT NOW WILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING SONOS AGAIN!!! I have two Play 5 speakers. I used this app to play them as a Stereo pair. They sounded phenomenal! Then I bought a Beam sound bar for my TV. I used the app to setup surround sound using all three units and it was absolutely wonderful! Then the app auto updated and told me the Beam was no longer compatible, I had to download the Sonos 2 app. Now my Play 5 speakers no longer work as a pair and I can't use surround sound.

The S1 controller does what you need it to do, but is obviously no longer supported by the developers. They removed basic features like swapping the channel on your Wi-Fi network to prevent losing connection, but they left the option greyed out so you can feel obligated to buy new speakers. I would use an alternative app if any were available.
