  • Sonos-like Wireless Multiroom Sound System

    As I said, I always regretting not being able to devote the time to learning the skills necessary to have a crack at it myself. And as time rolled by I just assumed someone else would be bound to think of it and do it before I could get to the level of knowledge needed so "why bother" sort of thing lolBut ironically I have a book of ideas out of which only 3 (from 27) have actually appeared in the market place as far as I am aware, So looking back I could really kick myself lol :)But luckily I'm not nearly nimble enough to be able to now haha :)

    If you wanted to get really clever you could set up some kind of proximity detection in each speaker although the method and frequency would probably need a lot of thought, so that as you move around the room it tracks how far you are from each speaker and alters the balance accordingly so you always have the perfect stereo image even if youre moving round a large roomIts an idea I had in my 20s to work with surround sound after watching a friend and audiophile use 4 tape measures to place his "listening chair" before turning on his ridiculously overpriced seperates hifi but I've never had the time to learn anything like microcontrollers or even analogue radio signal conversion to an extent sufficient to try and put this into practice.

So when I saw this project I thought I would suggest it as its remained at the back of my mind for over 3 decades now so it would be awesome if someone could actually do it

    What I have always thought would be a neat feature with this type of system is if it used a GPS or some form of proximity detector, even a PIR at a push to make the sound follow you rather than being on everywhere, even in empty roomsNot sure if that would be possible with this system, but if it would maybe that could be something you add later and then share?

    If that doesn't work then try a hair drier to warm it up. Most commercial glues become tacky again if heated allowing the film to be peeled off far more easily when warm than they are at room temperature
