Yes, this works for all Sonos. It just creates a mesh network for the devices. It doesn't add any voice function if the speaker doesn't already have it.

These aren't really necessary with current model Sonos products. If you plug any modern Sonos product into eathernet it creates it's own mesh network for the devices.

However, if you don't currently have a Sonos product close enough to your router to plug in, this could be useful.

So in summary, not necessary for most Sonos users, but if you do need it, it's a good price.

You're telling me most Sonos users plug an Ethernet cable into the back of their speakers?

Very possible when you place them in permanent locations.

I have 6 Sonos units: 1x Playbar, 2x Play:3s, 1x Play:1 and 2 Connects.
Outside of the Play:1 which we use as a mobile unit, they are all permanently placed. Only the Connects are hardwired, which is more than enough to result in a good network for them. But I could wire in any or all of the rest.

I would note, it isn't necessary to have them ALL hardwired, just 1 is enough. That one node makes the wireless for the rest of the units and they "figure it out." They are on their own channel and separate from my WiFi.

I have a Sonos bridge thing, under my router, and like 7 Sonos devices all going wirelessly, im assuming this boost thing is basically same thing as I what I have.

I also bought in before they made the new changes, to where each one can be connected from 1 being plugged in.

As mentioned earlier it is not necessary anymore. I have all sonos(2Play1, 1SUB, 1playBAR) devices connected over my wifi (not single one plugged in to ethernet). Earlier working over wifi was not possible, so needed that, but no longer the case.

If your wifi has poor coverage/bandwidth this might help somewhat. But overall not worth.

No, that's not what this is for. This is simply a way to connect the mesh network to your router. As others have mentioned, the speakers now can either a) connect to each other over wifi and not use the mesh network or b) use any speaker on the mesh networks ethernet port to connect to the internet. Current default behavior I believe is to use the mesh network only if you plug one of the speakers into ethernet and don't select the option to always use wifi. This product really isn't useful anymore for most people.
