SONOS drops wireless bridge requirement

It seems that Sonos is going to drop the Bridge requirement for their systems. This allows me to consider their solutions. Their stuff seems good, but the requirement for their bridge seemed to have no "good" technical basis. It was redundant. Other than relieving you of more money. This was on at zatznotfunny. Hopefully not a joke.
Just as an FYI, Sonos has never required the Bridge to setup a system. As long as you have a hard wire internet connection to a Connect, you are good to go.
