Good speaker, lacking instructions for Windows users.

Summary: The sound is better than I expected for the money spent. The only caveat is that if you are a non apple user like me the instructions for setting up to play music without iTunes are non existent. Tip for Windows Media users: Use the quick start guide to connect to your network via the WPS function from there set aside the included instructions. Find the device from your computer's control panel and open the device website perform pioneer's firmware update.
Summary: Met all my expectations except 1.. The ControApp Software should output to all the Speakers simultaneously or individually. I bout 3 speakers and can only play to one at a time, unless i use AirPlay on ITunes or a Apple platform. Otherwise I like it.
Summary: This product is amazing when it works. However, if one does not use it for a day or two, it loses connection with the network and must be set up from scratch. This involves finding the manual, and holding down a bunch of convoluted key combinations for various amounts of time. Why just not have a button for each function? Heck, you need the manual just to interpret the color-coded blinking of lights it displays.
Summary: Works with iOS, many problems with windows/android os. Still won't work with my android tablet. Make sure there is an Apple product in the house if you want to be able to make this work. Great sound, nightmare setup.
Summary: Don't let the negative reviews fool you. This is the very best valued wireless speaker on the market for Apple Airplay. Great value because it's really worth two or three times what it sells for on the market. If you can set up a router or a new computer, you can easily set up this speaker.
