Summary: I am compelled to review this product and let other buyers beware. There is a reason this device is cheap: according to Klipsch this is a 2 year old product that this seller has gotten a hold of and it is discontinued for a reason--PROBLEMS.
Summary: Fatal flaws prevent the speakers from being properly used as speakers. I have two of these speakers, and both of them have the same issue: The connection will drop. Worst of all, it is GUARANTEED that it will drop at some point.
Summary: PROs: - Sounds Great! CONS: - iOS 8 is broken! - Frequently cuts out. An App is required to setup with speaker, which isn't really a problem, but the App does not support iOS 8! I bought this less than 6 months ago, and it is now a very large and expensive paperweight.
Summary: In the end, hope will not make this thing work. I gave it two weeks and many hours of connecting, reconnecting; updating firmware and re-updating; powercycling, restarting, resetting; reading manuals and web forums; FAQs--you name it.
Difficult to set up with a 10.0.1 etc home network
16 March 2014
Summary: The instructions said to “Disconnect the internet cable from your computer…” What the hey does that mean? My home network is not that simple. I have a router that connects to the cable modem. Both computers are connected to my router via Ethernet cable with wireless turned off on both machines.
Summary: I tried to arrive at my rating by being relative to what I would expect given this thing's size and cost (around 200 bucks at this time, cost me 180 from Amazon). Pros: -- Amazing sound from such a compact box, the bass is especially impressive.
Summary: I absolutely love the sound from these speakers. Everyone is amazed by the quality and robustness of the music. I currently own three and have had to return one for complete failure, but I wouldn't buy another...even at Amazon's crazily discounted price. They're just too unpredictable.
Summary: Still trying to find the condition that causes this unit to drop audio. Seems to drop audio when streaming. Drops audio when streaming music/video via iCloud, NetFlix, Hulu, Vevo, etc. (Apple TV, iPad, iPhone 5) Doesn't seem to drop playing music/video stored on iPad, iPhone, or PC.
