Sounds Great When It Works - It Should Come with a "Reset" Sharp Pointer
10 January 2015
Summary: I have mine since December 2013 but I did not purchase from AMZN. PROS: 1. Sounds great for a book shelf speaker 2. AirPlay is great when it works CONS: 1. Like other reviews. WiFi drop outs and skipping are frequent 2. Need a tooth pick close by.
Incredible sound, but need to think about your wireless setup.

Summary: I have had my A7 for over a year now and I love it. We use it almost every day. The sound quality is incredible, so good in fact, that you will be annoyed by lower quality speakers. I am not an audiophile, but this speaker really makes you appreciate quality sound.
Bowers & Wilkins A7 sounds really good. There is nothing to complain about at all ...

Summary: Okay... I bought the B&W A7 in Sweden, but here is my reviews: I have now had my Bower & Wilkins A7 in a few weeks. The installation of the B & W app was smooth once you understand how it would go to.
A possible fix for AirPlay dropouts: it's the router, Stupid!

Summary: I purchased a refurb unit from my nearby Crutchfield retail showroom, exchanging a Polk Audio Woodbourne unit for the B&W A7. The bass in the Polk sounded overbearing and yet muffled in my living room.
Amazing, especially with 24bit 96khz mastered music

Summary: This speaker is amazing. Once setup correctly, it performs flawlessly. I have thrown pandora streams, 320kbps mp3s, 16 bit 48.1 kHz ALAC from an iPhone 5s, and 24bit 96khz ALAC from iTunes. They all streamed without skipping or dropping.
Summary: the best price on amazon is $300 higher than msrp? i bought it from another online store for $799 and no tax. i had a bose sounddock 10 which i liked. i'm no audiophile but i listen to a lot of music. there is something missing with bose. the base base is strong but not deep.
Summary: Exceptional sound and clarity from a device with a small footprint. Airplay works well as does the Whaale app from the App Store. I have had no issues with airplay or setting up the unit and I do use an apple wireless router.
Summary: I purchased the a7 almost a year ago. Sound is ok, but the streaming quality is lousy as the computer/ipad/iphone is often unable to localize the speaker. When localized, connection is interrupted regularly. in such a case, one has to disconnect the speaker, or even search/install it again.
