critical hardware fault after 10 months
4 December 2014
Summary: Stopped working after 10 months. Actually hadn't used it much but all of a sudden got flashing orange lights and logitech confirmed it was a critical hardware fault unrepairable. Sound when it worked was okay and no better. Now to try and get a replacement or refund.
Summary: Unlike many I have found this device a nightmare to connect to, on occasion I manage to get a connection and stream music to it but more often that not the device isn't picked up by AirPlay devices (even with the Firewall turned off). I bought this in August 2013 and have had to go through the set up process countless times without any luck (I have just spent another 2 hours fighting with it). Odds me of lobbing this in the bin are reasonably high.
Broke after 6 months and discontinued by Logitech, so no spare parts.

Summary: This is the second I have had of these and it's broken after just six months due to the device's 16v @ 3amp overworked power supply. The first one didn't actually play music from the AUX input, just airplay so was returned to Richer Sounds. This one has worked perfectly over the last few months and we all enjoyed it (bar comments made below in my initial review) until the power just gave up unexpectedly. I wrote to Logitech asking for a replacement power supply.
Summary: After spending 4 hours trying to set this up it is being sent back. I have the Virgin superhub which is Wireless N, I have discovered that this product is not compatible with wireless N. I spoke to Logitech support and the advice I received was to try another wireless router - I prefer to buy a different unit which is Wireless N compatible.
