I have been having a lot of problems with tracks ending a couple of seconds before it was supposed to end, or skipping at 95% of track played.
Tried 2 different computers, MacBook and laptop, and even trying to run Roon on a Mock, nothing seemed to remove the periodic errors.
Today i removed the Sonos Boost from my setup and switch to Wi-Fi, and suddenly everything seems to work, and I think that the general speed of Roon, from pushing play and things happening is improved.
No more skips and lost seconds of tracks.
I recommend anybody having periodic errors on Sonos gear,to try and take the Boost out of the loop, or just changing to Wi-Fi mode.
Jesper I did this a year or so ago and it worked really well until a certain update. Since then the Sonos zones disappear in Roon after 3-8 hours. It impacts a number of us, but in general Sonos over Pure WiFi seems to be better with no drop outs or skipped tracks etc
Though I have spent the afternoon with Roon playing on the Sonos in the garden through AirPlay and 3 speakers connected in the Sonos app. It has worked beautifully as the speaker’s were not visible in Roon otherwise.
Hopefully your changes keep working perfectly for you.
Interesting. I use a Sonos Boost and I haven’t had any issues using Roon with the various combinations of multiple Sonos Amps, Ones and Fives throughout my house. But I will keep this in mind if I ever have issues.
It doesn’t affect everybody (not even a huge percentage of Sonos user’s) and my problems went away after a complete Sonos rebuild. One of the things I did was take the Boost out and move away from SonosNet (as it doesn’t work nicely with some mesh networks)
If it works, then don’t change anything and that it doesn’t break
