I felt this unit should have had matching cables (white cable(s) for a white unit) and perhaps a better power design (no brick)

Summary: Initial impressions: Straightforward set-up via my Mac (running an Airport Express to connect, plus an iPhone as an additional source). Was listening within minutes of unpacking. Lacks the bass punch of say, a Sonos, but has expected and acceptable mids/highs for a modest, non-audiophile unit.
Summary: Speaker quality is good but the power supply stopped working properly after a couple of days. I cannot even find one to replace it. I called Boston Accoustics and they don't have the power supply in their inventory. Very frustrating.
Summary: I love being able to control my music and volume from my computer, tablet, or phone. So convenient. And I can do it from anywhere in the house! The process of setting up the devices is a bit painful, but you only do it once, and the instructions are good, albeit comlex. I did move and had to use a different modem briefly and set it up with the temporary modem; then when I switched back to my usual modem I had to set it up again. But it works great.
Summary: I really like this unit, and it has worked well for me. However, it's really important to have a good, solid WiFi signal at the unit's location, if you're connecting via WiFi. If the signal is mediocre, you'll get dropouts of the music, which is very annoying! I don't think it is the fault of the unit, just that to stream high-quality music takes a reasonable amount of bandwidth. This unit supports only 802.11g (not "n"), in the 2.4 GHz band.
Summary: I installed an AirPlay system throughout my house so we could have music (and wireless) everywhere. The system consists of a router and four access points. I purchased this speaker for the dining room. We wanted something small and unobtrusive and with minimal wiring. The speaker has been fine for this purpose. It's not a 15" speaker with great bass response but for background music it's excellent. It looks good in white. It was painless to install.
