Horrible - not just the sound

rsippl, Amazon
18 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought this sound system for about half the Amazon price. Even so, it's definitely not worth the money, for 20 bucks, you get PC speakers that sound a lot better. There is a Super Bass feature, but you can barely hear any difference at all if you turn it on. There are "Tone" settings, you can set Treble and Bass between -3 and +3, but as the speakers are totally crappy, that won't help.

Tip for configuration...

Sea and See, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: The easiest way to configure this thing is by connecting a wired ethernet cable, and then point your web browser to the IP of the N300 (your wireless router that runs your DHCP will tell you this). From there you get a reasonable web configuration page. FWIW, I could not press the [MENU] button to get to configuration screens on the box itself. Now I have it on wifi using a browser.

Best airplay speaker under $300

Jason Williams, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: Sound quality is fantastic...rich deep bass and clear highs. Not sure why other reviews ding it for not having a lightning connector (iPhone 5)...when this was released the connector wasn't even out. Only now are lightning devices starting to show up. Also, with Airplay you don't need it. The Airplay works fantastic. Used it with my iPhone 5, iPad Mini and MacBook Air running OS X Mountain Lion.

Great speakers for iPod

D. Vance, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: This is an excellent speaker dock. I used it with my iPod touch and it worked great. It can get pretty loud if that's your thing. I also used an auxiliary cable (Not included) to connect it to my laptop and watch The Amazing Spider-man. The sound quality was great. One of the great things about this dock, that sets it apart from others, is how easy it is to connect to the internet.

Elegant Design but...

Amazon Deity, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: The Onkyo ABX-N300 Wireless Music System is gorgeous and elegant in design. Beautifully black sleek finish with a silver sliding dock cover that turns off and hides the iPod/iPhone dock and touch screen controls. It comes with a remote control which I had to use to connect to my network. It took several tries before I could connect to my password protected network. I knew I was entering the correct password, but it just would not take.

Average Sound, Premium Price

A Gamer at Heart, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: I was excited to get this - I know the brand and equate Onkyo with high quality. But, in the end, my expectations were not matched by the reality. First, I had a problem noted by a few other reviewers. I could not get the speaker to connect to my wireless network. I tried dozens and dozens of times with the clunky menu and data input interface that is present for setting up the network.

Elegant Design. Mediocre Sound Quality. Works With iPhone 5 (and Most Any iOS Device)

P. Colin McGraw "AV, Computer & EnviroTech Nut", Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: I had high hopes for this speaker, since Onkyo A/V receivers have a rock solid reputation, but the ABX-N300 ended up being a mix of cool looking industrial design but so-so sound. The speaker looks like it's floating on its metal base, hovering is space, and it curves toward the base in a way that the pictures don't do justice. The top is one sleek piece of black plastic with touch-sensitive areas that light up with blue LED "buttons" that fade away when not in use.

Really not sure about the negative reviews...

Kate Stokes, Amazon
2 October 2012
  • Summary: I have been a fan of Onkyo for years and I have to say that this product has done nothing to dissuade me from that position. Let me address some of the concerns from other reviews as I have found them: 1. No 2012/2013 pin connector: I am guessing this can or will be addressed with some type of adapter or fix in the future. In the meantime, it didn't bother me because I never hook up my iPhone directly for at home listening.
