Great Assistive Device and Stereo.
Sonos has a wonderful reputation and the product lives up to the reviews. In particular, I was interested in the Sonos software features that clarify speech as well as the night time settings that soften loud sounds while boosting speech. Amazing. It was not uncommon for me to have to replay parts of movies or TV shows (e.g., Boardwalk Empire, True Detective) multiple times to understand the dialog. Sonos has taken care of this issue. In addition, the sound in normal mode does not offend my wife when watching movies or shows. I have owned hi-end audio equipment in the past that I could not use because my KEF Reference speakers had to be played at higher volumes to sound good. The Sonos system sounds crisp at all levels.

This is soooo cool! I bought it for my husband's birthday and finally set it up for him...but really for me! Sonos easily connected my smart phone, all the music on my computer and it has hundreds of radio stations! Just discovered "Shows" on the radio stations - now this is living! Way to go Sonos! I only bought the Play 1 and going out to get another one TODAY!

Excellent Audio
I have this connected to a Samsung LED UN55F8000. Works very well and the sound is great. Not sure if it is a glitch, but I am receivievng 5.1 directly from the TV from all sources (at least as reported from the app). Otherwise, you need a switch (recommend monoprice). I found that the app is great, especially the night mode, which ensures there are no loud unexpected sounds.

Keep up the good work.
