Summary: This is a good unit for music and voice. Simply connect the transmitter to your computer's headphone jack and plug in the power. Then set up the remote speaker, power it up, press the frequency scan button, set the volume, and then sit back and relax to clear sound.
Summary: I purchased a new CD Player and Amp for the family room and thought I'd like to have music outdoors on the patio (some 30' away). The sound these speakers produce can barely be heard. There is virtually no volume to these at all. I thought I was doing something wrong, so I called Acoustic Research and went over the installation and operation with a customer service agent. No go! I had done everything right as far as connection and settings.
Summary: We always had the TV volume up too loud so I could hear it. The neighbors could hear it too. We move the speaker around the house to listen to music or TV while we do other things. It works so well we decided to get one for my Dad who is half deaf. Our neighbors don't hear our entertainment anymore and we can actually hear the dialog on TV now. It gets tinny on some shows and we have to change bass and treble on the stereo or sometimes the bass button fixes it.
Summary: This speaker is a wireless speaker that is transported in, out, and around your home or office. I was able to move around the house including outside on the patio without losing the signal. Plan to buy a few more and set up multiple bases stations. You can set each station to a different one and use three different input sources for three different speakers or use three speakers from one device.
Summary: Exactly as advertised. Looks pretty cool, I think. And, sounds pretty good -- not great, but what I expected and serves its purpose for our new deck. In fact, I just bought another to have a little more sound and right/left stereo sound. I am going to buy a couple of shepherd's hooks to hang these. I had outlet's installed on the edge of the deck for them as well. When not in use they will simply be stored inside. It's been nice to have Pandora, Slacker, etc.
Summary: I bought 3 of these and loved them so much, and saw so much application for them that I bought 2 more. They can run on batteries or be plugged into a power source. They get quite loud, and the quality stays good for quite some distance (they are clear from the back of my yard). The batteries drain quite quickly... maybe 8-10 hours of life per 6 AA batteries.
Summary: I wanted to get music onto my pool deck easily but also had to sound good and be able to handle the outdoors. This speaker worked out very well. I will soon be buying a second one so the sound will be in stereo. Would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: Sort of works at times. You constantly have to fiddle with it. I use it for my balcony - all that separates the receiver and transmitter is a piece of glass. If I move the speaker more than ten inches from the transmitter it stops working. Anytime your music stops playing - if you haven't shut the speaker off , it emits shrill static. When it is working - the sound is acceptable. I would not recommend it though.
