The greatest thing since sliced bread!!
I absolutely LOVE Sonos and their network of speakers. We were thinking of installing Bose surround sound permanently into our new house but then I won a Sonos Play 1 at work. Of course, my husband couldn't wait to play with my new toy so he set it up in our 1200 sq ft 1 level apartment. When he finally got it working we were blown away! The sound test is what impressed us the most. We played it first without calibrating (not sure if that's the right word) and then he went back to "calibrate" the sound and the difference was uncanny. The echo was more controlled, the pitch was different, and just over all a better sound. AND our neighbors below us couldn't even hear it at full volume when they knew to listen for it!! (That may be our building though) Needless to say, the Play1 helped us pick Sonos' system over Bose's overpriced wannabe system. #winning
Just one suggestion though: we feel it should be easier to play music elsewhere-rather than connecting to wifi wherever you bring your Play1, maybe Bluetooth capability or even some sort of port to hook the phone in to the speaker? It's free advertising that way too =]
I enjoy my Sonos system. It's paired with my living room stereo system and plays great music throughout my home. I have one added speaker in my living room, two in my family room, one in the dining room, one in the kitchen and another in my bedroom. While I enjoy the system, I do have some complaints: First, moving a speaker from one room to the next can be an exercise in frustration. I often move my Sonos 5 from my bedroom to an adjoining patio when we have visitors. Unfortunately, it took me an hour to reset everything the last time I tried moving the speaker. This is still a very quirky, hit and miss part of the Sonos experience. Secondly, I wouldn't have this problem (moving a speaker to a screened in porch) if Sonos developed an outdoor speaker. I still don't understand why this hasn't happened. Too expensive? Finally, I sometimes lose my wifi connection. I usually correct this by simply turning off my iPhone's wifi and turning it on again. I think this is a Sonos problem since everything else connected to wifi seems to work fine during these momentary losses.
Over all, though, I highly recommend this system, especially if Sonos keeps making improvements.
Lock-screen controls are great but buggy
I love that they *finally* got lock-screen and control-center controls, but they are way too buggy for anything but a beta version (I'm running the latest iOS on an iPhone SE). The primary problem is controlling the volume, which works about the half the time (regardless of sliding or using the volume buttons). The lock screen works more often than the control center for some reason. The feature hardly ever works of you've used your headphones (I realize it can be tricky to figure out what users expect in terms of UX behavior here) or AirPlay recently. Also, why not add controls for the "heart" in Apple Music and the thumbs up/down in Google Music? It's so annoying to have to search for a song in a separate app if you want to mark it as liked. I hope they keep working on these features, as they greatly inprove the usability of the app.
Update: The latest version has control-center and lock-screen controls that are even buggier. They now work less than half the time for me. (Less an issue with the app than with the firmware is the unbelieveable design choice of letting the system forget the queue position if you use the line-in function. I find this more annoying than Windows spontnaeously rebooting for an update while you're out eating lunch.)
