Music streaming and more
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.
Works as advertised...Great!
Over the past 3 years I have acquired the SONOS products to include the Play 1 and Play 5, several Connects and several SONOS Amps to control music throughout the house. It has allowed me to use some of my legacy speakers very effectively.
The controller app works well but I am a tech person so easily understand some of the nuances to the features. My wife can use it well enough to play her favorites as well. I will note that as more features are added to the controller app, it gets more complicated and those technically challenged don't find it as easy to navigate the controls. Great products though and the sound can be perfectly matched to any room.
One issue I discovered is that SiriusXM limits the number of simultaneous streams so if you are trying to play a channel in multiple rooms you will get a message cutting off the stream. I think their max is 2 or 3 simultaneous. Pandora works well for whole house events.
Was good until ......
I use Sonos at work so that I don't have to work is complete silence. Also. So that I could connect my Apple Music to it. And for months it was working perfectly fine. I liked that I was able to control the music from the office plus from my phone if I stepped away from my desk. Recently, ( like yesterday ) when I try to access the Sonos app on my phone it's telling me I cannot use it until I install the latest version - providing me with an external link. When following the link a " Sonos beta " app is downloaded. But when you try to access it, Apple says this app has not been deemed trustworthy therefore can not be used. The link then goes on with instructions on how to bypass this untrustworthy situation. But in the end I have two apps, that do not work whatsoever & a waste of my time. So I'm not sure what's going on here with Sonos, but I had to delete both apps since I can't use them. BUT before all of that, I loved the app. Which is why I can't completely write them off yet.
