The PlayFi app at the time of this writing is horrible. I have been using the Prime Wireless Speakers for a week and at the moment I am writing this, I am trying to play Maren Morris' My Church and the music just won't turn on. I immediately went to the Sonos App and my Sonos Connect Amp to play the same song on Spotify and it played right way. Why? I am not sure. The problem is that this happens several times a day. Just today listening to Amazon Music for 4 hours, the music stopped 4 times. Sonos never does that. Also, whenever I get home and open the PlayFi app, it takes 47-52 seconds (Yes I timed it) to pick up my speakers and sometimes it doesn't. This is BEYOND frustrating. Sonos just works. When I close the app and open it again, most of the time it will reset and work, but I shouldn't have to do that multiple times a day.He goes into more detail. Pending an update, he's using the SVS speakers on a spare TV, connected with an optical wire (gasp!), for watching movies.
The PlayFi App just doesn't work very well, doesn't have Apple Music, doesn't have Line-In Volume Control or input switching and a poor interface with Spotify. Once those things are worked out, I will trade in my Sonos gear....
