Please fix your software!!!, February 24, 2018

Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
This review is from: Sonos PLAY:1 Compact Wireless Smart Speaker for Streaming Music (Black) (Electronics)
Iâm losing patience with Sonos. Iâve built out a pretty extensive system (eight play-1âs, one play-5, one sound bar, one sub) and have historically been a huge advocate; however, the recent Sonos app update has been terrible. Now (since the update), I have to unplug my Sonos controller and wait awhile for a reboot. This has become so irritating that Iâm beginning to regret my purchase of the inexplicably expensive Sonos components. Sonos has been (and should be) âplug and playâ, but itâs definitely not. Moreover, the new app interface took a long time to get familiar with and I donât see that itâs improved in any way (and itâs very buggy). For someone whoâs been an early adopter and evangelist of Sonos, I need you guys to get your act together. My wife is so irritated with the Sonos network that she doesnât even use it anymore, she just plays music from a stand-alone Amazon Echo. Please fix your software!!!

If you spent any time recently standing on a ladder running speaker wire across drop ceiling, or poking holes in walls or buying area rugs to hide your wired system’s shame… or worse yet, just have bundles and strands of cords and wires all over your home, and you are finally ready to shell out for that HIFI system to end the misery and sound amazing, no-brainer… Sonos is the way to go.
If you are sitting at your computer fooling around online and your favorite song just doesn’t sound quite as crisp as you would like it to, or if you have a $200 budget to fill 1 room in your house with sound, keep looking, your speaker is out there somewhere 😉
I hope this helps, Cheers.

No longer the great option it used to be., October 21, 2017
By J. T. (Minnesota) –
The sound quality is great, but I can no longer recommend the system based on the software that is required to control the speakers. The latest versions of the software, which are updated whether you want them or not, are unattractive and buggy. Sonos’ attempt to ‘improve’ the user experience has led to my speakers being linked to an account at sonos.com. No adding or changing the system without internet access to that account. I bought these so I could mostly play music on my computers and should not be forced to use sonos.com or new unnecessary updates all the time.
Their new user agreement also says they can track all my activity or if I don’t accept the agreement, I don’t have access to use my own speakers! I’m not sure they need that and frankly I am tired of companies saying they need to track my online activities. If there is a clear reason and they tell me before purchase, that is one thing. However, after the fact, don’t change the agreement to force this kind of monitoring.
I started buying pieces of my Sonos system a while back, when there was not anything like Sonos on the market. Now I have options and will likely be buying and recommending other speakers in the future.
