    Pros: 

    It provides a simple method for Airplay to Sonos

    Cons: 

    A Windows version or better still something that can run on a router or the Sonos Bridge.

    While I bought the product immediately, it is more to support the author to improve the product. I listen to my Sonos a lot but I don't necessarily keep my MacBook Pro on all the time. That dependency needs to go. I do hope this continues to work. Apple is quick to change protocols and kill interesting products like this.

    Pros: 

    I can finally send music to my Sonos speaker via AirPlay!

    Cons: 

    I wish this were built into Airfoil!

    Extremely simple to set up and appears to "just work". Hopefully Apple won't break it with changes to the AirPlay protocol down the road!

Bought! It's running on my home mac server. Be aware: you need to run it on a Mac in order to work. So if you have a server or a computer running at all times, this is amazing!

@nickabouzeid I was just looking for this yesterday! 🤗🤗🤗

Looks promising, of course, the problem is one does need to leave the Mac on for this to work. Setup is simple and it works right out of the box. A slightly longer than 10 minutes trial would be great.

Love the extension but it's a bit buggy. I'm using alfred (but have not touched your audiobridge icon with it) and it's overlaying itself on top of other icons. Here's a screenshot: http://support.ninja/MpSwe5

Is this based on AirConnect? It's great but I've had a lot of issues with memory leaks and it losing control of devices when groupings change. Also, your Purchase page says it's still in "Test Mode", which makes me reluctant to attempt purchasing it :)

@rgoodwin yes this is using AirConnect under the hood, and I recommend using AirConnect directly for people who want a command line service and/or Linux support. Good to know about the memory leak issues you've seen; I haven't seen anything glaring in my testing but I'll look into adding a memory usage watchdog to restart the service (when music *isn't* playing!) if allocations start ballooning. And thank you for the heads up about the purchase link! I just published version 1.2.2 that fixes the link and cleans up a few cosmetic issues.

@john_hurliman Awesome, I'd like a GUI and such so I'll probably jump on. Another error to watch out that I haven't tracked down is "too many jobs".
