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? --188.8.131.52 05:39, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
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?

The SonosNET is a proprietary mesh network that distributes music to various speakers in the mesh. It also keeps speakers tuned to the sources in sync.
It will stream from your server or from a service you sign up to in the app tothe speakers in all major formets. But, in the uncompressed formats (i.e. FLAC, it will play up to 16/44.1. Files with higher sample rates or greater bit depth are seen and skipped over. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bromo33333 (talk • contribs) 08:19, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
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)
I think that's correct. It will use Wifi and does not need the special bridge if you don't want one for general use. The Soundbar and Sub don't need to be hard wired. But the connection to the source for watching a movie needs to be put into the soundbar optically. I suspect it has more to do with the latency betwene TV screen and sound processing. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bromo33333 (talk • contribs) 08:16, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
This page is not unambiguously promotional, because... Since it is a very old page (from 2007) it could simply be reverted to the original, before the promotional content was added, as the company does seem notable enough to have its own Wikipedia article. The page was tagged by User:Mgillespie for speedy deletion, but I support a regular articles for deletion nomination if said user does feel page should be deleted. --MB298 (talk) 03:01, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
- Update – I removed all promotional content and reverted to revision from 2006, before promotional content was added. I will continue to work more on the article and turn it into an encyclopedic article. MB298 (talk) 03:06, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
Sonos and raising money
According to Crunchbase (Reported by Billboard Magazine on 3.14.16)
Total Equity Funding
$323.95M in 8 Rounds from 5 Investors
Most Recent Funding
$130M Secondary Market on December 3, 2014
So I would propose to update the article with this information with the right citation (https://www.crunchbase.com/organization/sonos#/entity) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bromo33333 (talk • contribs) 08:13, 16 March 2016 (UTC)
