Can't play purchased Audible audiobook on Sonos

I have a lot of audiobooks purchased from Audible.com. However, I found I could't play these aa/aax files on my sonos very well. I have asked the support man, and was told that the Audible files were DRM protected. How can I remove the DRM and make these audiobooks playable on my sonos? Is there anyone can help me?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I just met the same problem with you. But luckily, I found a solution on Google to remove the DRM from Audible audiobooks by converting the AA files to DRM-free MP3. And then you can transfer your Audible audiobooks to Sonos and enjoy on it.
