            Great speaker.

            A volume remote would be good. When your phone that is playing the music rings, you can't change the volume unless you manually change it on the speaker - which is tricky when the speaker isn't right next to you and your trying to take a call.

            Admittedly it is frustrating that you have to have a premium spotify account to listen to anything on spotify - a bit naughty of you SONOS...no doubt a nice little earner for both parties.

            Love the speaker otherwise!
