Stunning sound with some poor peripherals

Bo van der Rhee, Amazon

  • Summary: The sound that comes out of these two gorgeous speakers is stunning, and the Airplay setup was a breeze. The remote is also great, and the docking station is equally pretty. My iPad 1 struggled with continually streaming the music if I played games and/or used the internet as well, but other iPhones as well as an iPad 2 seem to have plenty of computing power to play music without a hitch, so this is not the speaker's fault.

  • Summary: Great sound for such a small speaker. Cool design. I have to upgrade my wireless router. I'm using a linksys g. I need to upgrade to a n for the speakers to catch the wireless signal from the other room.

  • Summary: These look great with a lovely curved design and great finish. As you'd expect, they also sound great. Loses a star as the connection sometimes drops out but well worth the money compared to some other well known alternatives.

Best Sounding Airplay Speakers - 5 STAR SOUND

ElDiego, Amazon
19 March 2014
  • Summary: At the price I paid, which was equivalent to €370, they are a steal. However, I must admit to being extremely cautious based on the experiences of other reviewers regarding reliability and durability. I won't bang on too much about the sound, just to say that they are far superior to any one box airplay speakers. Far far superior. They look impressive too and are a nice addition to the front room. I'm a fan of the Philips Fidelio range.

  • Summary: The beautiful DS9800 are a wonderful addition to anybodies home. I've bought these as direct replacement for my full audio system, and are extremely close to being as good sound quality as my floor-standers. To be honest, unless I play them both next to each other the difference isn't noticeable.
  • Pros: design, sound quality for airplay speakers
  • Cons: lack of phono input, could do with a little more bass, wireless can be an issue as with any wifi speaker
