Ratings and Reviews
Excellent so far.
I'm new to this and generally resistant to new technology. The Sonos sounded like a great idea and a friend of mine has recently installed it ( well actually his son in law did because he couldn't get it to work). We went for the sound bar and 2 Ones on stands for a surround sound effect.
It took a while to set up but everything did work first time and we love it. For some reason my Mac now tells me that the software needs updating ( even though it also tells me that there are no upgrades!) and I found it very hard to sync with my iTunes library. For some reason it wants to reload the entire library even though I only want to upload 1 new album. These are glitches that I've worked around and put down to my lack of tech experience.
Anyway, we've now bought a Two for the kitchen and that set up almost instantly. As soon as it was plugged in the software found it and off it went.
My next thing is to establish if the One speakers which are configured for surround sound can be swooped between that and an audio setting. They work for music and TV but I get the feeling that in music mode the balance with the sound bar would be different.
So, in summary, far from perfect but they're up and running and I can live with the glitches (which I have now decided are not my fault).
The app is really useful and it has lots of really useful features. However, one thing that could be improved is when you use the search section there are lots of different categories such as Playlist, Songs, Albums, Podcasts, but there is no All section so if you search for a specific playlist, you need to put it on the playlist search setting otherwise nothing would come up. It would be better if there was an All section and then it would display the searches item in the different categories as you scroll down the results. I don’t think all the different search categories are needed and would be better if it just displayed your searched item in the different categories when you scroll through the results. One example of an app that does this really well is the Apple Music app as it splits the search into Top results and then splits the search up into the categories when you scroll down.
Apart from this recommendation, it would be a really good app but the search system is quite frustrating when you are wondering why it can’t find your favourite song, and the reason is that you have had it on searching for podcasts!
Great speakers, terrible software
The sound depth and quality on Sonos speakers is superb - with a surround setup it’s just like being at the cinema. Sonos technical support is decent; quite responsive and helpful. Sonos software is appalling: not intuitive and full of bugs. When it works, you just have to dig through too many menus. However, often times it will randomly cut out during songs, tell you that half an album can’t be played because it’s in the wrong library, or simply fail to show an album at all. Given the high price of the speakers, this is unacceptable - please sort it out Sonos developers; you’re letting yourselves down on what is otherwise an outstanding product.
UPDATE: the developers continue to amaze us all. They have just betrayed a great many customers who have already spent loads of money on their products by forcing them into subscription music services, thereby making them spend even more. To make matters worse, having done so, the functionality does not support streaming from Apple Music unless what you want to play is already in your library (oh, the irony!), the app does not support Audible, and they’ve removed the alphabet slider, so when you do want to play something in your library you have to scroll through for ages to find it. When will the software guys at Sonos start emulating the hardware guys in their company? It’s so annoying that such great speakers continue to be let down by such terrible UX...
