Apple’s OX 10.7 and Sonos – Busted…

The new Mac OS update 10.7, known as Lion, will put your Mac computer at the latest and greatest offering from Apple. However, it will also mess up a lot of your music applications if you aren’t careful.

Important information for Sonos Mac users

Dear Valued Sonos Customer,

Our records show that you are a user of the Sonos Desktop Controller for Mac. As you may know, Apple has released an upgrade to its Mac OS X software, version 10.7 (Lion).

The new Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) release is not compatible with your current Sonos system if your Music Library is stored on your Mac.

We will have an update to your Sonos Desktop Controller for Mac very soon and will notify you when it is available. In the meantime, please stay with your current version of OS X.

If you have any questions please contact our Technical Support team at:


We apologize for any inconvenience that this may have caused.


The Sonos Quality Team


I have three Macs that “should” support the new OS, but I have no plans to update my main computer, a Mac Pro, for at least a month, or until I see that ALL my main applications won’t be “broken” by the update.

 You would be wise to follow suit…
