Fogey Mike

I am an acoustic fogey: I like my mostly old CDs, and was devastated when Sony discontinued their carousel CD storage players. I wanted to be able to access my own CDs and play them in any order or combination. I wanted at least CD quality sound, and better if I could get it. I heard about Sonos from a stereo store salesman and bought the equipment necessary to play music through my stereo system. The streaming function works well enough, but storing and playing my own CDs took a large effort, involving ripping all my CDs to an external hard drive and encouraging my home wifi network to recognize that hard drive. Sonos tech support was greatly helpful in this, and I think they are the best tech support people I've ever encountered. The personal time it has taken to rip over 500 CDs is, however, substantial and painful. Yes, I know there is at least one commercial outfit that will do it for you, but the price is out of reach for me. I now have completed this task, and it works. It actually works pretty well. The Sonos system includes an indexing program, which works OK, but is maybe a little clunky. Genre classification is iffy. I needed a while to learn the ripping software, and I'm not sure I've really got it down a hundred percent, but it works. Old CDs can be problematic, in that they did not/do not have the identifiers which more recent ones have, and which indexing programs mostly rely on. I have only good things to say about Sonos overall.

Great until recent update


I’m sad to write this review because of how much I used to love Sonos. I’ve been collecting Sonos for over five years, and have absolutely loved it. I would tell anyone who would listen that it’s my favorite material posession, and totally worth the money. The controller app was so simple and intuitive that my 4 year old could use it, and so well designed that my focus was only on what I wanted to listen to, not the app itself. I used to be able to choose or switch rooms, change artists or playlists for individual rooms with a minimum amount of actions.
A recent controller update changed all of that. Now it is such a clumsy process changing music in any room. Sometimes I try to switch rooms, and the previous room won’t stop playing. There are more frustrating glitches I could list, but the bottom line is what was once an elegant design is now frustrating and actually gets in the way of the system. I’m not sure why they made the changes. The previous controller was not just fine, it was just about perfect.
I waited over a month of constant use before posting this review in case I just needed to get used to the changes, but I’m still unhappy with the change. Sonos is a wonderful company that has done so many things extremely well, so I remain optimistic that if they get enough feedback they will improve the controller design. I miss being able to wholeheartedly tell others that they need to buy Sonos products!

Upgrade is horrible


The Sonos system is fantastic and the speakers high quality. I have owned them from the beginning and have 7 speakers and 3 amps and constantly telling my friends to get Sonos. HOWEVER; the app has always been somewhat of an issues. For year the community has been asking for a better volume adjustment that is more precise yet we never got it - check online message boards. It was a pleading request but on deaf ears. The latest upgrade is another example of the software side of the house not understanding their users desire for simplicity. I’m sure there is a lot of complexity behind the scenes that make it all work but there is tremendous value in making that invisible to the user. The new upgrade is not intuitive at all and has lost its ease of use. It’s a shame that I have to use the app to control what is otherwise a great sound system. On top of the poor user experience in the app there is no Apple Watch version. I am using a 3rd party called Zone Play to operate my speakers in my watch. It works but why isn’t there a simple version for watch 2 years after its intro. I always thought Apple should have bought this company but now with Home Pod coming out soon I guess it’s only wishful thinking. Sonos leadership needs to hear their most ardent supporters and fix this app and the way we operate out substantial investment
