Can't get it to do 100% of what I want ...but okay
13 September 2013
Summary: I bought this to stream the SiriusXM app from my ipod 5. All though that feature is advertised and the Orb is actually can be purchased from Sirius, the option isn't there. What is there and I use frequently is the great way it can play music from my PC wirelessly. Cool.
1st product and replacement were unable to even connect during the setup process.

Summary: I spent nearly 7 hours total trying to get the product to connect. Part or the time on my own and then with customer service. I paid to ship the product back to Orb Net works, they sent me a new one and it has the exact same problem. Their own software will not connect with their own device.
Great concept and quality, took some time to get it to work fully

Summary: The concept is great, the form factor is very nice. Easy to setup and operate, either from iPod/iPhone or directly from the PC. Excellent sound quality (I also bought the LP-2020A Lepai amplifier to drive my speakers) Bear in mind that it won't play songs bought in iTunes prior to 2009, because they...
Summary: UPDATE: Was "works OK" and three stars. Seems to have improved lately - works really well now. The s/w finds my Orb device easily. Not sure if they updated something, but I moved the review up to 5 stars now - works perfectly!
Summary: Bought the ORB as a christmas present for myself after an extensive search for a device that would stream music to my home audio system. This is the perfect device. Unlike some of the others published reviews of the ORB setup for me was easy.
Summary: I had issues with their controller software initially but worked with their customer service to get it worked out. They sent me a patch for my android phone to test and create a log and then a new release was made which I was told would fix my issue. It did.
Hope you have patience with the set up, cause it's awesome.

Summary: I have been researching a device that allows me to stream my music library as well as internet radio and Pandora. It does it all pretty well. But, if you do the research, you will find that set up might be a challenge, no kidding.
Summary: Everything about this device is EASY. Easy to setup and easy to use. And the sound is great for a wireless stream. It is not CD quality, but I didn't expect it to be since it is streaming MP3s from my computer to my stereo system.
