I was just checking out Synology's DS audio app & was able to access songs on my NAS. I then noticed that it listed all the players connected to the network, including Apple TV & my Sonos components! 

I can now play songs off my NAS on my Sonos system!  party time!

It's not perfect, & I can't control multiple zones. The app is also a bit quirky & not as easy to navigate as the official Sonos one. But it works fine until a dedicated Sonos app for Windows Phone 8 is launched.

That's a lot of very excited question marks when what you clearly need is a sonos app.

There are a couple of apps for Sonos (third party). Not tried them yet. Official Sonos app is coming in 2013.
