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.
Great system for the money, just requires a little tweaking!

Summary: This purchase was one of the very best I made this year. After several failed attempts at finding a good bluetooth/wireless speaker that fit my needs, had great sound, good design, and flexible functionality.
Seriously amazing value, just know it's a pain up front to update the firmware and get up and running...

Summary: Well, I certainly ran into the issues that all the other lower rating reviews ran into including a difficult speaker setup, the speaker forgot my network the first time I turned it off and I would lose volume control not to mention a large delay before audio would begin playing...
Summary: I purchased this product as 'new' in early September 2013. It arrived promptly in brand new condition. It found my network easily and it sounded so good I bought another one on Amazon a month later.
Summary: Great sound from a small package. The gloss finish is handsome. Set up was not easy to connect with a network, but not impossible. What made it difficult was the time the device takes to recognize a different mode.
