Summary: FYI - This Wi-Fi Network speaker is NOT WIRELESS. It has to be plugged in to work. It's a great item IF ...you have the compatable Wi-Fi Sony Blu-Ray player and have a good range with you're wireless router. I set it up and it was working fine (Pandora, through the Sony Blu-Ray) when it was right next to my wireless router. Then I brought it outside and set it up again and it wouldn't find a signal.
Summary: Bought this along with a new Sony stereo system. The setup instructions are awful, took me an hour to setup, and requires a windows computer to program it to your home wifi network, no mac support. Tried to use it last week, but it wouldn't connect. Didn't have the energy to start troubleshooting it.
Summary: THe sound quality is very good coming from such a small device. The issue is with its network connectivity or more to say when its audio comes from the LAN or WLAN. THe sounds comes in and out sporatically and happens more frequent when you are in party mode. Which can be very annoying when it happens multiple times during a song.
Summary: This is a great speaker. perfect for a shelf or on a desk, not in the sight of your boss. A great item from Sony. Only problem we had, is that check before you buy! We have the Sony doking station, and it offers the "Partying " function. The light bulb went off and we thought this speaker and the docking station would work well to distribute music in a large room. WRONG!! It works only through a computer for dual listening. Enjoyable, but not what we purchased it for.
Summary: Speaker sounds great, easy to get set up, with one exception. The ads say or imply you can run this thing directly off a television or DVD player that are networked. If there is a way to do this, I haven't figured it out yet. The only way to use it with a network is with Microsoft Media Player. I haven't tried to work this out yet with tech support, so there could be a fix.
Do what announced, read specifications before buying

Summary: Setup is well explained, It could be a little bit touchy if you are a newby in network configuration. Warning : this speaker is 1 way so don't expect a real quality of the sound. (bass are extremely poor) SA-NS 400 not yet tested but should be much better.
