Summary: God does SONOS SUCK!!!! Nothing but frustration. Sound is mediocre and it constantly drops connections and groupings. No bluetooth. Just awful app. I spend more time trying to get it to work than enjoying music!!
Summary: I've spent over nearly $2000 setting up my apartment with Sonos speakers. I've bought 3 Play 5s (1st gen), 2 Play 3s, the sound bar, and sub. The Play 5s have been a disappointment. The light started blinking red and stopped working after a little over 2 years.
Summary: I like Sonos, but the controller apps (mac, iphone and iPad) have some serious flaws. If you mostly just listen to Pandora, you'll love sonos. It makes it super easy to play music anywhere. But if you have your own collection (in iTunes for example) and your own playlists, etc.
Summary: It all looks & sounds good, till it lasted, then all downhill once you have a problem. I had bought the initial Sonos S5, lasted for just over an year (My luck with warranties). Paid some $150 bucks for a replacement, now did not last 6 months. Might have heard 100 hrs of music.
Fine when it works, and then it doesn't, and then it does, and then it doesn't

Summary: The audio quality is fine (though not better than $150 THX computer speakers) when it works. The problem comes when I try to connect my iPhone, iPad and computer. IPhone ppreviously worked, now it won't find the system, even when the speaker is playing music from the computer (so clearly the...
Summary: I found the sound from the Play 5 one dimensional with uncomfortable to hear, tinny sounding percussion. My current system of speakers wired to a PC sound far richer and deeper in comparison. When turned to high volume the Sonos was actually unpleasant noise.
Summary: consistently dropping wireless signals on one or multiple sonos devices and the whole system then requires re-installing / re-starting or an online update - at least half the time i want to use it, i cant because it needs me to update / restart / re-install some component or the other.
