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. The router has wireless and there are other wireless access points scattered about my place to allow wireless connections for our iPhones, iPads and laptops.
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. For one thing, the indicator lights on the side (showing connectivity) almost immediately fail. I've had three with this issue, so I don't know if they're connecting or not.
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.
Summary: I never write reviews but i'm compelled to write one for this speaker just because I have such a love hate relationship with it....and have a few tips to help out other people having my issue (at the end). The love is few and far between but when I love it, i really really love it. Now i'm not an audiophile, but i do listen to a lot of music and have several sound systems depending on what i need them for.
Summary: I saw this on sale for $160 and took another look at it and decided to buy it. Setting this up was a little problematic, but it was partially my fault. I have two wireless networks in my house. One is my personal network running on 802.11n, the other is a guest network running on 802.11g. Since this is 802.11g only, I decided to set it up on the guest network. The problem was, I forgot the guest network password when I got to that part of the configuration.
Summary: This was our first airplay speaker, so we did quite a bit of research and ended up spending the $$$ for the Klipsch G17 for what we perceived to be exceptional quality. We live in a remote area and did not have the luxury of listening to any speakers prior to ordering, so we had to base our purchase on reviews like these.
Summary: The Klipsch speaker delivers a great sound and works fine with your Airplay connected device IF the speaker is in the same room as your wifi router! I bought this product to stream music in my bedroom, next to my living room where my wifi dual band router is, even with a good signal in the bedroom the playback kept on cutting! after a firmware update and a configuration of the wifi router to prioritize the Klipsch G-17 access, the problem remains.
