Sonos Mac Desktop….quick and dirty review

Sonos released their Mac Desktop Controller. Download, installed and linked the zoneplayers in less than five minutes. On the first run, the software looked for iTunes music folder, and found it. It asked me to turn on Windows sharing, and prompted me on how to do it. In a few clicks, I was ready. Added the desktop music folders to the entire mix, and voila, a mega library was at my fingertips. I like the fact that now I can create playlists with ease. The best part – the library doesn’t show any iTunes DRM protected songs in the library. However, if they could figure out a way to import smart playlists from iTunes into the playlist folder … that would be awesome. I would love to see integration of music recommendation engines with the music library, which is now running close to about 250 gigabytes. I would love to see a plug-in that allows me to publish my tracks to my blog! Sort of like what we already have for iTunes. Not to gush – this is Mac software done right!
