Great system for the money, just requires a little tweaking!
18 December 2013
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. While the G-17 is by no means perfect (more below), I gave it 5 stars because, compared to everything else I tried, it was as close as I could get! 1.
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. For example, if you change the mode from AirPlay to USB, it take a good 5-8 seconds to play the USB device. I did not know this, and consequently I thought the speaker was defective and kept pushing the mode button.
Beautiful sound, great looks, and airplay in one package.

Summary: I love it. The sound is fantastic, it was easy to set up, and it gets incredibly loud. I think it looks great, and I set it on top of my refrigerator to stay out of the way but still be accessible. I give it five stars, but sometimes it lags, or kind of blanks out for a second. Sometimes it's five seconds. Other times, we can play music on it for a whole day and it doesn't lag.
Summary: This speaker sounds great. I have a 950 square foot apartment, and I needed a nice sound from a compact speaker set. This does the trick. I read other reviews complaining that the AirPlay drops, but I have yet to experience any issues with it. At the $160 bucks that I paid for it, this product is excellent.
Summary: This is an absolutely awesome little Airplay speaker. The setup is quick and easy and the sound is crystal clear. I would recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to deal with wires and hooking up speakers and using a two zone reciever to get music in multiple rooms. As long as you are in range of your wifi setup, your full library of tunes are at your finger tips. You can also play music directly from your iPhone or iPad.
Summary: Pros: * great sound (significantly better than my old bluetooth receiver) * fills a large living room and audible in neighboring rooms with no distortion * small size * wall mountable (quick dismount as well) and comes with stand * remote is minimal and easy (short range though) Cons: * had amazing difficulty setting it up from my windows machine. Used my Mac and it worked like a charm. * hard to wall mount because of power jack.
Summary: Got the G-17 on sale...for a portable air play speaker it was super easy to set up, looks nice (at a distance, see below), sounds great (for a wireless sound system with speakers so close together) and is high-quality in terms of materials and... [...yeah, that's the problem. Workmanship. For some reason, when the speaker is attached to the stand (which is in two pieces and comes put together in the box), the speaker and stand are not aligned.
Summary: I have the Klipsch 2.1 stereo system and wanted to go to the next level for a bedroom musical sound system. I listened and shopped for the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin but found it to be unattractive and more expensive. Than Klipsch came out with the G-17 Airplay Sound System and I was quickly interested since some reviews claimed it was good as the Zep or very close to it for less money and in a very attractive package.
