Are there any consequences of removing a device from Sonos in terms of audio settings or playlists?
I don’t have first-hand experience with Sonos or audio settings and playlists, but based on research, removing a device from Sonos may have some consequences:
1. Loss of audio settings: If you remove a device from Sonos, any audio settings that were specific to that device will be lost. So, if you had adjusted the EQ or volume specific to that device, those settings will no longer be available.
2. Disruption in playlists: If you had created playlists specific to that device, removing it may disrupt the flow of the playlist or cause some of the tracks to be missing in the playlist.
3. Issues with multi-room playback: If you were using the device in a multi-room playback setup, removing it may cause issues with the synchronization of playback across multiple rooms.
Overall, removing a device from Sonos may have some consequences, but they are generally minor and can be easily corrected by adjusting settings or recreating playlists.
Is it possible to re-add a device to Sonos after it has been removed?

2. Select “System” and then “Add Product.”
3. Follow the on-screen instructions to connect the device to your Sonos system.
