  • Summary: Airplay does NOT work reliably, stay away ! Great sound but simply unusable with airplay. Poor wifi performance by design. Just get an airport express.

Very bad connection

Thompson C. Ritchie "thompson", Amazon
21 March 2014
  • Summary: This speaker drops the wifi connection every time a device disconnects. If you want to use 2 or more sound sources, be prepared to unplug the speaker and wait the 2 minutes for it to reconnect to wifi. NOT Recommended.

Full sound quality and nice design

M. Wilhelmy, Amazon
19 January 2014
  • Summary: The unit produces full sound for a room and adjacent rooms (if you so wish by turning up the volume). As a former audiophile, but no longer, this is a very happy budget solution for me, and both the wife and children like it.

Nice looking with below aerage sound.

Dowjonez7, Amazon
29 November 2013
  • Summary: I cant really say these are my favorites. I will say they will do......for now. I chose the speakers because they are airplay compatible. ( FYI airplay is music only). I kept the speakers because they are aesthetically acceptable to my spouse to be showcased in the media room.

Operation now stable after changing router

G. Presar "Feynmanfan", Amazon
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I have been running this speaker in my office for almost a year now and, like others who have posted here, was experiencing annoying dropouts and disconnections that would require cycling the power to the speaker in order to reestablish connection.

Big Sound Small Price

  • Summary: After hearing this at a friends house, I knew it was the solution to music on the deck this summer. I was able to find a factory refurb for $80 and couldn't be happier!

Good speaker

Christopher J Henry, Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: This speaker performs very well. I use it for background music in my office. If you are not setting it using an iPhone, the setup instructions are a bit inadequate. I had to download the full instruction manual before I figure out I had to tell my computer to join the network that was the speaker...

Great sound for great price

4 February 2013
  • Summary: This was a refurbished unit. Arrived on time, set up was a little complicated mainly due to ny cradlepoint router. Once working the speaker is perfect for our living room.

Decent sound; may slow down your wireless network

Phillip Torbert, Amazon
31 January 2013
  • Summary: The sound quality from this unit was surprisingly loud; we don't often turn it up past 25%. It's a relatively flat sound, but the bass is decent for its size. Highs are not incredibly crisp, but it's still a great sound for 95% of listeners.
