What's New in Version 5.3.2
Sonos update 5.3.2 fixes an issue related to battery power on iPhone and iPad
I am an early adopter. I have been using this since it first came out. Long before the iPhone app. I still have the original controller. That is what makes these great. Of course they sound great, of course they look great. What is unexpected is that they keep improving them. They have come out with several new speakers since my first set. The iPhone app makes using it much easier. I was able to stream my music from my computer and when I added a Synology network array I was able to stream from there as well. One negative is that when I set up a second home for a few months while moving I went and bought a bridge and a Play5. I could not import my settings from my home setup. I had to register but there was not an option to add devices to an existing account. When I move all my stuff and merge the two systems I will just setup the old system and then add the new stuff. I have a few music services and years of favorites I do t want to lose.
You get what you pay for:
True, not the most inexpensive item(s).
However, they update their app frequently, speakers are an audiophiles dream, and they have great customer service.
Not to mention, you can buy as needed. If you can't afford the whole enchilada, start with the appetizer, the play 1. I started with a play 3 and it's pretty loud. I later paired it with another play 3 and plan to add the sub in the future.
This system also allows one to set up your own custom stereo system by room, grouping and type of speaker. This can be a bit overkill though as the speakers can get loud. Meaning: I'm not sure why one would have numerous separate groupings in a close vicinity, like the first floor of a house. Perhaps all people don't jam out as much as I?
It's pretty darn cool, but if you're not tech savvy, read the instructions and contact customer support.
A few words of caution, I was disappointed when I didn't see the iTunes logo initially. However, as long as your library is open and the computer has the Sonos app, it'll work like a charm. In other words, by phone, laptop or desktop these speakers won't disappoint.
Lastly, if you have weak wifi, don't expect these to work in your home well. Meaning, if you purchase them and they keep struggling to find the network, it's your wifi plan, not the speakers.
True, you could also purchase the Boost, but upgrading your wifi would be cheaper.
Have fun and enjoy.
Truly amazing system
I used to use Sonos in my one-bedroom apartment to have music throughout the dining area, living room and bedroom. It was nice because I could wake up with a speaker next to me and have the others silent, and play music in the background in the dining area only when having guests for dinner, or turn on all of them when I did chores around the apartment so I could have music everywhere. Now I moved to a 5-bedroom house and my experience could not be better. My wife can play music in the living room with the speakers set up as a stereo pair, while I play different music upstairs in the master bath while taking a shower. It is always great quality, and never drops the signal whether it's a 800sf apartment or a 3600sf house. You can always buy it piece by piece as you need it, from one speaker to many. I highly recommend it.
