App is Hard to use
5 Stars for the Speakers, but 1 Star for the app. Here's the problem, it's difficult to use since all of your music and streamed music is set up differently. For instance the spottily, pandora and your music that you may use on you device is organized differently. Your playlists are harder to find, everything is in a different place on this app. Its also hard to play music. For instance if you want to make your own play list you have to go through all these options to add a song to the playlist. Your better off going to the app or your music library itself and edit/add a playlist from there. Plus some of my older music will not play through this app. Also when playing music its very annoying adding and subtracting music from your queue. Its a constant editing battle for which music you want on and random songs that you forgot to take off b/c it stores all of your previously added tracks in your queue. Overall the sound quality is great but the app which you play your music through is a total disaster. Think twice about buying sonos.
By necessity, this review is for both the speakers and the app, as they are inseparable. I own a Play5, Soundbar, and an Amp. I love this system. It was simple to set up and everything has worked the first time for me. No struggles with joining to wifi or controlling individual units. The Soundbar automatically switches to tv audio if we switch on the TV and I think the sound is great. Occasionally have to hunt for things in the app but nothing to get worked up about. The new feature within the app of using your phone to automatically tune a speaker to a room worked brilliantly and delivered noticeably better sound. Using Pandora within the Sonos app is almost identical to using the Pandora app. Components aren't cheap, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. Nice to have technology deliver on a promise.
App ok hardware amazing
I've been through dozens of networked speakers over the years. Starting with the old docks, going on to air play and Bluetooth. We finally made our way to sonos and couldn't be happier. Amazing sound, app does a remarkably good job of indexing my gigantic iTunes library living on a Drobo in the basement. I guess I wish the would continuously improve the app, but it's pretty ok at the moment. Love love love the ability to shuffle stuff from hype machine. The new auto room tuning feature in the latest firmware/app version is really cool, released in the past month or so.
Highly recommend sonos hardware, you really don't have a choice when it comes to the app, although there is a desktop version for Windows and OSX.
Rating is for the hardware primarily.
