Summary: I purchased the product expecting to play music from my laptop using my Sony home entertainment system. The concept and design of this product is good. A receiver connected to my home entertainment system, a transmitter connected to my laptop, and a remote to control the music. It took only a few minutes to get everything setup, connected and playing music. I was at first very excited when the music played.
Summary: Bought this unit after looking at a number of alternatives (including the Squeezebox and Sonos). I liked the fact it was $250 and the remote was fully functioning (i.e. displaying music track data). However, this product has really not lived up to my expectations for two main reasons. One - sound quality.
Summary: Many users complained of the music skipping. I thought this must be due to improper set up. I had guessed that since I am very proficient at setting up computers I would be able to get this device working. However, after spending many hours with this device it is obviously defective. I could not get the skipping to stop regardless of what other devices in my house where running.
Summary: I was very excited to receive the Wireless DJ as a Christmas gift. However, months later, I still can't get it to work properly. If you have an existing wireless network, as I have, or live in an apartment building where there is other wireless traffic, you may not be able to fully enjoy this device due to frequent "dropouts" (sound cutting in and out). This may be due to the Bluetooth interface it uses, or it may be due to some problems with its Streampoint software.
Summary: The system is OK... BUT with great potential. Comparable to the Sonos system but at way less cost. The whole system is quite simple with it having just 3 pieces of hardware - wireless transmitter for the PC, nice remote, and the docking station you hook up to the receiver. All pretty well done. Sound quality really depends on how you have your music encoded and your A/V system. My sound is actually quite good.
