    Just feel the evolution of some well placed sonos etc. locations makes the need for hard-wired room to room systems unnecessary for the vast majority. I didn't bother with my most recent home and I can't say it's missed in any way whatsoever so just wondering how others feel. I have some wicked old school floor towers with a receiver/turntable for channeling my inner hipster (and mostly just for how deadly the setup looks) but that's enough for me these days.
    ah yes. If you want a standalone device with a speaker/amp/source built in, that works also.

    Pretty much off topic but, what's the point in NEW construction of even hard wiring anything anymore? I feel like it's becoming irrelevant now to spend 40K on a wired home audio setup.

    well, you can't make speakers produce sound without a wire and an amp.
    I think he means just buy your Sonos soundbar for each room instead of in-ceiling speakers

    edit: looks like I'm late, but still correct.

    He got fucked on the generation bump where the old devices can’t use the new app and features.

    All the old stuff still works exactly the way it always did, just not forward compatible with the new stuff.

    Basically the old connect amps and a few other legacy pieces don’t have the internal hardware to be able to run things like AirPlay and the Sonos 2 app.

    I also got fucked but I got 3 years of use before that happened. They did offer owners of the old stuff a hefty discount to upgrade though.
    Gotcha. I'm super late to the Sonos game, so had no idea.

    Time and place for everything. Lots of times where I may want music but donít want to look at a set of giant tower speakers or have bookshelf speakers everywhere.

    It’s only really an issue if you have some new and some old stuff. All gen 1 or all gen 2 still works great.
