This article reads almost like advertising rather than an encyclopedic examination of facts. I'm familiar with the system because I sell it locally, but I'm not an expert on the technologies involved. In the next few days I will try to add some more technical information on Sonos, but I'm not sure if that is enough to maximize this article. Any thoughts? --126.96.36.199 05:39, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
URL for accessing diagnostic info
If you enter: http://<IP of a SonosZonePlayer>:1400/status you will get access to various technical/diagnostic information, including a full dump of all the metadata currently indexed on the system (under the "tracks" entry). Other entries include: "tracks_summary", "proc/ath_rincon/status", and "jffs/settings/alarmclock.xml" —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:57, 8 February 2009 (UTC)
Year Sonos was founded?
What music source?
Does this system take a normal hi-fi of any make and send the signal wireless to speakers. If it does it does not jump out and tell me it does or does not. This needs to be mentioned. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:50, 14 September 2013 (UTC)
- A year on, me neither. There is little at the level of the broad picture, only more detailed description with attendant jargon to impede the general picture's immediate accessibility. I guess if I devoted half an hour to read the article in depth, looking up less familiar technical terms, I may be able to work matters out but on a first read through I'm not certain of the scope of what can be played through these systems. Do they simply use wi-fi to play music from potentially any source, via wi-fi to remote speakers? I.e. could vinyl, cds, mp3s on a desktop computer etc. be streamed if connected through the appropriate unit or an existing amp with an attached unit? I know what I think the answer is but it should be considerably more transparent. The emphasis seems to be on internet sources but is that just from the marketing emphasis of "the latest thing" and the systems in fact deal with a source of any nature?

Boost / SonosNet used even with new WiFi setup??
I've made some changes to reflect the fact that a wired network conenction is no longer required (particularly for setup). However I'm unsure of whether this brought any technical change. Does the SonosNet still get used for all inter-device communication and only setup/control happen over the users local WiFi? Or does it move completely to users WiFi if it doens't have a wired connection? I'd guess the latter since 3.1/5.1 require a wired connection still which implies that the low-latency SonosNet is only used when a wired local network connection is available. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Emirpprime (talk • contribs) 15:19, 18 June 2015 (UTC)
