In this fast paced world, there's something to be said for consistency.

Sky does. I'm not trying to invalidate your statement, but they are presumably one of the "big boys"

That's not true. I run a PowerEdge T610 at home with a load of disk and I'm seriously considering moving to this model. The MS licenses are all via a TechNet (as was) subscription which was extremely good value at a couple of hundred quid a year.
So speaking personally, I am concerned about power and even more so given the confined space, heat output.
I don't think anyone is seriously suggesting that Sonos gear is the tip of the Audiophile iceberg. That said the Play's do sound good (I've a 5 and a 1), and the main room feeds into Arcam and B&W's.
Yes I could probably get better sound quality by rooting around in a drawer for an old CD and playing that, but frankly that's a pain. I like the integration with Spotify or whatever of my now almost consigned to the cupboard CD's I've ripped. And I like that the same music plays in the bedroom and bathroom when I want it to. I like that it's bullet proof, the software is updated regularly and I can control the whole lot from my phone. Sometimes the sum of the parts are more important.
So no, it's not going to win a like for like competition with the highest end kit out there (possibly not even some mid range kit), but I listen to a damn sight more music using Sonos than I ever did before.
Would I buy the Sub? No, can't see the need for it. If Sonos did a product that could help with my mild tinnitus, I'd be all over that in a shot though.
