Summary: It's attractive, it attaches quickly and reliably to the local network, and the full sound - with plenty of bass - is good for an airplay device - that is to say, it's not what one could get from a true hi-fi system attached with a DAC, but the compactness of an all-in-one, standalone box makes the sacrifice acceptable. Someday, someone - perhaps Audio Pro? - will put convenience and hi-fi quality together into a really outstanding one- or two-box airplay system.
Summary: One of the problems buying audio equipment for the iPhone is that you can't compare products before making a purchase. Although Apple stores have a decent supply of earbuds, headphones and speaker systems, you can't listen to most of them. So what's a customer to do? Read the reviews on Amazon.com? Check the professional reviews on sites like CNET and whathifi.com? I did both. I have owned and enjoyed B&W speakers in the past.
Beautiful to look at. Sounds great, but a bit bass heavy

Summary: It's a very good speaker all round. Perhaps not as crystal clear as the reviews online state but better than my Sonos 5. I think maybe my expectations were too high. The bass is a little to active for my tastes but of course if you like modern pop music this will be a good thing. It's plenty loud and it does look rather spiffing. The feature that allows you to network to it on its own signal without a wireless zone is very handy.
