Sonos is not cheap, but if i even get 5 years use out of it, i would say it was worth the expense.
So far it has been worth every penny. The only thing i fiddle with is setting up the speakers out on the patio each time i'm out there. I could go with wall mounted outdoor units, but i don't want to and already have a pair that fit in the gazebo for storage, so what's the point in buying something else?
