Summary: Terrible product. Does not stay on WiFi network. I have to turn the unit on and off every time I want to use it because it never stays active on my WiFi network. It is physically closer to my high end WiFi router than a Denon networked receiver, but still drops on a daily basis.
The Airplay never worked. The speakers work only through the audio cable not through Airplay.

Summary: I was very excited to buy this low cost speakers because they had Airplay and that feature usually is very expensive. However when I received the speakers, to my surprise Airplay never worked! The speakers work only through the audio cable BUT NOT through Airplay. Money wasted.
Summary: Hooked it up at the store to my iphone via the mini plug to try it out. Sounded amazing for the size and price. Problem is (and like so many others have reported) it does not work well at all on airplay. Drops sound every 10 to 15 seconds so is not useable.
Summary: Stutters, stops and skips while playing. If you unplug it, it forgets the wireless settings and you have to set it up all over again. Which is not hard, but not exactly fun either. Sending it back. Found a Panasonic speaker that works much better for me on Airplay.
Buyer Beware - Philips will not stand behind this product

Summary: Airplay technology not really ready. I have been working with Apple support for 3 months now on most weekends to get these speakers to work. I have three of these (Philips) and two from another manufacturer.
Summary: What is the use of this thing? Like I'm really going to go buy some Apple product to use this when I have about seven PCs? Seems they could have made it RF or put in an 802.11n receiver or something that would make it practical.
Pros: Price, portability, power
Cons: Doesn't seem to work on PCs according to Mfr's website.
Summary: CRAP CRAP CRAP.....worked poorly when it did work...wifi traffic would cause it to stop playing. after about 45 days it just stopped PERIOD! tried to reset the system and start all over....airplay or any of my 5 apple devices would not see it... dont wast your money..
Summary: I purchased this with high hopes. The unit is gorgeous to look at and the price was awesome. I fully expected to have issues with the dropped signals and planned on updating the firmware to correct the problem.
Summary: This speaker sounds fine, looks nice, and is seemingly affordable. I gave it to my mother as a Christmas gift and had it up an running in no time. Problem is, it would disconnect from wi-fi constantly. I'd say in this case, you get what you pay for.
