Can the Sonos Playbar push sound to a Sonos Play 5?
details
I know the Sonos Playbar can push surround sound from your entertainment system to both Play 3's and the Sonos Sub. However, sometimes we're watching a television show while preparing food in the kitchen. If we want to continue watching a particular show, we usually have to crank the volume waaaaay up on our television.
We do have a Sonos Play 5 in our kitchen that we frequently use to play music on. Can the Sonos Playbar stream television / entertainment center audio to the Play 5 so that we...

Network Clock
details
Looking for some opinions on what to replace my alarm clock with. For the past couple of years I have been using a logitech squeezebox radio. It shows me the time, and plays an online stream of a radio station to wake me up. I am considering replacing with a sonos play 3, but then I won't have a clock anymore.

Does anyone have a suggestions for a clock with a network time so that I never have to set it / reset it?

Affordable home audio streaming hardware?
details
I'm about to close on a house and would like to set up audio streaming to different rooms of the house. I want to get something like the Sonos Play:3 but without the Sonos price tag. All my media is living on a HP MediaSmart Server EX470 running Subsonic and Twonky so ideally I would like something compatible with what I already have.

Do you ever have problems with the Sonos Bridge dropping Zone Players or speakers?
details
Been having a weird issue lately where I fire up the Sonos app on the iPad, iPhone, computer, etc., only to find that my Sonos speakers aren't detected. I basically have to do the setup process all over again. This happens about once a week.

Any idea what's going on?

Is it possible to scrobble music played through a Sonos unit?
details
I've been using my Sonos to play music from Rdio. A nice feature that Rdio natively supports is the ability to scrobble music to Last.FM. I'm a huge stats junky, so it's cool to see what sort of music I've liked over the last week, last month, or last year. It's kind of interesting to see how my musical tastes have changed over time! While playing music through a Sonos unit this weekend, I noticed that music played through Rdio wasn't scrobbling. Is this normal? Is it something related to the...

Apparently, the Sonos Play:3 doesn't support AirPlay?
details
Sonos recently came up with an interesting solution to use AirPlay with their Sonos S5 systems. Basically, you plug a cable into Apple's Airport express and run it into the line-in of the Sonos S5 (or any of their other units that have this). Then, iOS will recognize it as an AirPlay compatible device. It looks like the Sonos Play:3 doesn't have a line-in. This means no AirPlay support for this device. That's kind of a bummer. Is that something you'd expect in an audio device now? Will this...
