Summary: After wasting at least two days, finally printing the owners manual from the Sony website, etc., I realized that two things were missing: the remote and the cd disc with files. Thus I was never able to set it up to work with my DLNA Sony Blue Ray home theater.
Summary: We have a Sony Micro Hi-Fi Component System (CMT-MX750Ni) with Party Streaming. We bought these speakers for wireless streaming whatever we're playing on the radio (be that FM radio, CD's, MP3, etc.) It would not JOIN PARTY no matter what we did. Finally gave in and set them up to connect to our home network NOT what we wanted to do in the first place. Once we connected it to our home network, only then would it join the party. What the....
Decent as a plugged in speaker ... horrible as a wireless speaker
3 July 2012
Summary: I received the Sony SA-NS300 as a gift. As an individual speaker hard wired directly plugged into the iPod, I thought the sound was nice. While the 360 degree sound was a neat feature, how many people are going to put the speaker in the middle of the room? It took a while before I was able to test the wireless component. At best, I can connect two speakers (party streaming mode) at one time, and it still cuts out every 30 seconds.
Summary: At my title states...it is typical Sony....they only make products to support their technology. This is why the company will follow the same path as Kodak because they are not able to design products to work with other electronic manufactures. I bought these speakers for my kitchen to stream music from my PC...specifially Internet services like Pandora. Not able to do it and for me to do this I need a Sony Blu Ray DVD player.
Summary: The unit is small, attractive & easily located long/short distances in my ranch home with semi-finished basement from the sender( mine was a vaio windows 7 computer ). It was easy to set up and began working immediately just a few feet away. However, the second song stopped & restarted it with every means i could think of & it soon stopped again. I tried longer & medium distances & the same problem occured.
Summary: If you don't have every Sony products, as I don't have, this will work with nothing, just with a weir Windows Media Player plug-in. The iPhone app works just like a remote control, you can't stream music from it. Also, it is extremely slow and the sound quality is so poor. This is the last Sony product I get, my WX9 Sony camera is also so slow.
Summary: I bought this speaker together with a Sony Home Theater system thinking that I could stream anything from that system to this speaker. Man, was I wrong. Sony claims this speaker plays music from your PC or phone over the LAN but actually it only plays music from "Sony-Approved" devices that support "DLNA" which is a crappy DRM scheme that's designed to prevent you from playing music you legally own unless that music is locked down with DRM.
Summary: Bought this item today at Best Buy as open item for cheap (< $30). I consider myself as an IT savvy person, but there times when I was ready to give up and return it. The worst part is that as a Mac user you need to download 3rd party software that expires after 30 days in order to use.
Summary: I received the speaker today from UPS. I have the Sony BDV-e570 Home theater system and wanted to extend the reach of the system to my living room area. The setup was easy, I got the speaker to work in party mode streaming music from my laptop to the Home theater system and to the sans300. I was also able to stream music directly to the speaker also. The sound from the speaker was kind of descent for the size of the speaker, but the bass was really lacking.
Summary: I bought these speakers hoping to get a wireless speaker that would work across my home wifi network. while these speakers DO do that...they DONT do a lot of things that they should. First off...only certain devices can stream music to them...and while they say that a windows 7 PC can stream audio to them...I've only managed to do that with music and NOT tv or any audio input into my pc.
