It's Sonos Had Sonos for several years now, it works as intended for 95% of the time and there has been a steady stream of improvements over the period I have used it. However the controller (android) does have the annoying habit of not connecting to my system on rare occasions, this may be network issues or the controller software? Because of the overall positive performance I haven't investigated further. Overall really good product and even my wife can use it! Would be nice to have a YouTube music app for the kids.
Sonos Rocks!!!! I have 6 each of all your speakers plus 2 subwoofers a two soundbars. I just can't get over the sound of sonos speakers I am totally blown away!!! Keep up with the good work keep bring out new stuff and I will make more room in my place for it. Love you Sonos!!!
Restricted in a very frustrating way I bought the new Sonos Play 5 speaker and I am very excited about the speaker in itself, but the fact that I have to go through the Sonos app or a cable to play music is so incredibly frustrating! YouTube? Not possible. My favourite radio station? Not possible. Film? Not possible. Unless you plug it in, of course, but why did I pay such a huge premium for a wireless speaker then? For that money I could have bought a much better non-wireless speaker system plus a Chromecast Audio, which is much more flexible
Needlessly complex to just play music Wanted to play a song at a friend's house, over 20 minutes of searching for the player, downloading the app, carrying the player to the router, plugging into an Ethernet cable, registering the player, setting up Spotify. I regret ever mentioning the song now would have been easier to just plug my phone into a aux cable or use a chromecast. 5 years ago this would be been great but it's so much easier now to use a chromecast or smart tv
Update seems to drop connection to my Boost Great app, easy to use, but keeps dropping connections between rooms and to streaming services via my Boost since the last update. Hoping the next update fixes this, or maybe I wasted the cost of the Boost...
Con: With widgets turned on this would drain my battery pretty fast, so I turned them off and battery life seems same (S5). Pro: Works well with our various streaming services for content. Allows using different logins to the same streaming service. Can make own playlists from a mixture of services it seems. Alarms are handy feature.
This update fixes a couple of minor issues with Apple Music on Sonos.
