Summary: I should start off saying the speaker quality, especially for the size, is terrific. The problem is the software. It crashes about 4 out 5 times I use it. 2 out of 3 it won't play anything from my library...just spins its wheels. It requires constant shutdown and reboots.

Summary: Everything with this is proprietary. Sonos refuses to allow sound sources that are not in their app. I really want to be able to make a youtube play list and play it over the Sonos, but alas, they will never support this natively..
Summary: The sound is great. . . IF you can get it to play. EVERY TIME I want to start it up, the SONOS software wants to re-install all the equipment. I can never just open the app and play music. This past week, I cannot even get the app the "re-install" the equipment. This is $270 down the drain.
Summary: This is my first Sonos product- and I'm very surprised how limiting the speaker is of the music you'd like to listen to. The whole system seems to try to corall you to only listen to music services they have business arrangements previously made with (TuneIn Radio, Rhapsody, etc.).
Really disappointed with the junk apps. Totally overpriced.

Summary: Bought one of these on eBay. Installed and updated the software without any trouble. When I went to add Spotify to the listener service, the option was not present. I know Spotify should be there. Searched aimlessly for an answer, and people told me to update the software, but this did not help.
Summary: Software update (that cannot be reversed) ruins the Sonos system. What was an intuitive, efficient, and attractive design has been replaced with a clunky one that requires extra steps (including tapping on screen areas that are not obviously control points).
Summary: awesome sound quality but having to use the Sonos app restricts you greatly. For example, I can't play something from youtube thru the speaker because there is no way to get it to the app, or sound from any videos.
