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 are DRM protected. There are ways around it though (pay 30 cents to Apple to upgrade, or just burn to CD and rip them again).
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. I am buying another as it is nice to be able to remotely control your music inside and out of your house.
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. The kit leaves you with the impression it's 4 simple steps, but if your network is anything but the most simple set up, the process isn't very simple. I had to install the device 4 times, and if your network is hidden, forget about it.
Nice network music controller with some flaws but improving..

Summary: Great idea. Not that bad of implementation. Fortunately, improving. Works with Windows 7. We've got HDPC running Windows 7 x64 and Orb application is having issues if PC stays up for too long or goes through sleep/wake cycle. It would stop working and perhaps tries to restart itself and causes to run multiple instances of the program causing system's resource leakage. Now let's see what's good and not-so-good about this device.
Summary: Nice device that uses your wireless network to stream music. There are a number of devices that can to do this (small computer, Sonos, etc), but this is by far the cheapest. They also provide an app for iphone and android that lets you control what music it plays. It works pretty well - the software will index your itunes library for you. I don't think they support music indexers other than iTunes, but I'm stuck with it either way as I use OS X.
