Plex and Sonos today announced a new partnership that will see Sonos' speakers supporting Plex music playback through the Sonos Controller app. Starting this afternoon, Sonos users can access their full Plex music libraries and discover new music via Plex using the Sonos app.

For Plex customers who have a Plex Pass for premium Plex features, music collections are automatically organized by metadata and sonic fingerprinting.

plexsonos

With our brand new Sonos service, you can now browse and play your entire Plex music collection on any Sonos device, right from the Sonos app. This means you'll benefit from our awesome library and discovery features, and your personal music will look better than ever on Sonos. Even if your collection is a total mess, with sonic fingerprinting for our Plex Pass users and metadata for everyone else, you'll end up with a beautifully organized library.

Plex for Sonos is in beta and thus can be accessed through the Sonos Labs section of the Sonos desktop app or the "Add Music Services" option on a mobile device after signing up for the Sonos Public Beta Program.

Sonos' wireless speakers are available from the Sonos website and start at $199. The Sonos Controller app can be downloaded from the App Store for free. Plex is a free service available from the Plex website, but premium features require a Plex Pass, priced at $4.99 per month.

Thanks for that Info! Right now I have a Bose Soundtouch 30 and it's really annoying that Bose is sooooo slow implementing new services like Apple Music and there apps suck tbh. Nothing you'd expect from a company like Bose. I decided to switch to Sonos Play 5 in the near future but my concern was soundquality. My guess is that there is not much of a difference.
I had Bose desktop speakers for a while and they were great. But Sonos is at least equal in quality if not better. The hard part though is if you want true surround sound with Sonos and a TV you need a sound bar, two play 1 speakers and ideally the subwoofer. That is about $1,800 for a Sonos surround sound. You can get other systems for significantly less.

That said, the wireless setup has never failed me. My Sonos speakers always work well over wifi and sound great. The quality is there, but they are over priced. But, I'll pay extra for something that works well.

I was looking at Sonos speakers that embed into the walls of your home. The installation I'm looking at would be wired to a traditional receiver though so I'm assuming none of this would benefit me, anyone know?
This maybe an option:

I am looking into Sonos, but also wanted to check out the competition. Does anyone know of another system that allows for stereo and multi room functionality like Sonos? I saw a brand Edifier on CR, but it is only bluetooth and not wifi.
There's a few that do multi-room (including Chromecast Audio). But I'm not sure how many have wireless stereo pairing functionality. The competition section of The Wirecutter's article on Sonos may be a good starting point for info: http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/sonos-player/#the-competition

I wish I could afford a nice Sonos setup. Similar topic but does anybody know when the Google Audio Chromecast will support Apple Music? Or will this never happen?
You're asking the wrong way round. With Google Cast its up to the app developer (Apple in the case of Apple Music) to build Google Cast support into their app. Google have public APIs for developers to use Google Cast: https://developers.google.com/cast/

I don't think it will happen. Apple really should add it to the Android Apple Music app to be competitive with the other music apps on Android. But the problem if they do this is iOS users will be calling for it to be added to the iOS Apple Music app as well. Pretty sure Apple wouldn't want to do that. I think its more likely Apple will add Airplay support to the Android Apple Music app.
