Who has already tested the following modules or others and can give me some feedback ?

- sprules or sonoscontrol = http://www.sonoscontrol.com/
- media control = http://mediacontrol.sk/index.php?page=sonos
- keyplus modules = http://www.keyplusmodules.co.uk/
- sonos control (free) = https://sites.google.com/site/crestronprogramingtools/system/app/pages/search?scope=search-site&q=sonos

Does somebody know other modules ?
Does even a decent module exist for Crestron like the extravegetable module for Control 4 ?

Sonos is an incredible audio multiroom solution (if you consider all the internet features ... spotify, internet radio, pandora, ... not for audiophils with need for high end digital music, would prefer sooloos from meridian then, but is so convinient in UI and features) and I choosed it above the crestron adadgio multiroom audio solution, but would be so nice if it was integrated in crestron automation... can somebody help me with this feature ?

The problem is that Sonos is not playing nice with giving out their protocol, as they don't want any support issues. And most Crestron dealers will shy away with in effect a jailbreak version like Extra Vegetables, as they don't want to be on the hook when Sonos makes a change and breaks the module built for Crestron. Out typical client does not want to be told they have to wait for a 3rd party to "fix" their system.
