Summary: I use it exclusively to stream audio via AirPlay from an iPhone or iPad. The only limitation I find is that the WiFi signal has to be relatively strong in order not to experience sound interruptions when streaming via WiFi.
Summary: I bought this primarily for the airplay aspect of it, to make it easy to play music from any of the various devices and services we have. Thus far, it has worked well. It took a little extra effort to get it to connect to my wifi network initially.
Airplay was dead on arrival, then died again in ten months after replacement

Summary: I purchased a Panasonic SC-HC57 unit less than a year ago. I am anything but technologically challenged, so after trying to setup Airplay on it using a variety of methods, I concluded that the device was faulty and returned it to Amazon.
