Sonos overview

Sonos (formerly Sonos Desktop Controller) allows you to control software for the Sonos Music System.

Music in your house.

When it comes to playing music, we believe all rooms should be created equal. That's why you can put ZonePlayers in absolutely any room where you want music - either connected directly to speakers or to your home theater and stereo system. With Sonos, no room is off-limits and you can add music to practically any number of rooms: the bedroom, the backyard, even the bathroom.

Music in your hands.

Sonos puts the control of all your music and all your rooms right where it should be -- in your hands. With the touch of a finger you can find and play a world of music, whether it's streaming direct from the Internet or stored on your computer. Tune in to your favorite radio station or browse through your entire music library. You can play the same song in every room or choose different songs for different rooms. It's up to you. And so is which Controller you use - the dedicated Sonos Controller, Sonos Controller for iPhone, Sonos Controller for Mac or PC, or a combination of all four.

I've been using Sonos for more than a year; it is a frustrating system with many glitches and limitations--for example, sometimes I can get my Pandora music to play, but othertimes is simply won't. Guidance always seems to be to reboot (router, speakers, etc.), which sometimes works but not always. Further, there have been periodic system updates, both to Sonos and Apple operating systems, such that things that used to work (playing music residing on my iPhone, launching from my Mac desktop) are no longer operational. Tech support is meager. I've never been notified about the reasons for any of these changes. Very frustrating system and not nearly worth the price and aggravation.

This must be the worst and most expensive app and device combo on the market. Not only have they taken away the capability to play your iTunes music downloaded to your phone the desktop app inexplicably loses the local file path on my laptop when nothing has changed. The latter is not uncommon either, I see thousands of threads of complaints about Sonos. The device is not cheap and the software is a joke

This is technically the Sonos S1 Controller app now. The Sonos 2 app (sans "Controller" reference for whatever marketing folks do such things) is for folks that have upgraded their systems to the S2 platform. https://support.sonos.com/s/downloads?language=en_US

My pair of Sonos speakers are now worthless. They aren't connected to my own music. They aren't connected to any other wireless gear like my Apple TV. All they are is an ordinary sounding radio. I'd sell them but who'd want them. The recent software update made them obsolete.
