So many things to like

The Lin Family, Amazon
3 February 2014
  • Summary: I hear Pioneer has replaced (or eliminated) this model. Too bad. I use mine wirelessly with an Apple laptop and it works great. If I'm just looking for background music anywhere in the house, this model works well. Sound is a little muddy but we're talking background music here, not high end pristine stereo.

Good sound, price is not bad. but setting up....

Samuel F Chang "sam", Amazon

  • Summary: When you connect the speaker thru USB, this baby works really good and easy. Charges my iPhone 5s no problem and I control thru my phone. Sound is good, if you like some bass. Setting up thru the Wifi. The setup map guide that comes with is so complicated. The user interface on the browser is par none to horrible. *(Should be updated to a more user friendly[hint Pioneer]. The speaker sometimes drops connectivity when is thru Airplay. This is my first airplay speaker.

  • Summary: I LOVE THIS SPEAKER EXCEPT FOR ONE THING. THIS IS VERY HARD TO SYNC WITH MY IPHONE5. I HAVE FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTION AND IT STILL WON'T WORK. OTHER THAN THAT, IT WORKS GREAT OFF A CORD. I'M GOING TO CALL PIONEER TO HELP SET IT UP.THE SOUND IS INCREDIBLE! EXCELLENT BASS AND HIGHS. VERY COMPACT. WOULD HAVE BEEN 5 STARS EXCEPT FOR SET-UP.

Nice once you get it setup

D. Thomas, Amazon

  • Summary: It took a Sunday afternoon to get this setup right, but now it works anytime, as expected. You can run it from iTunes on your computer, the Remote app on your ipad or iPhone, or via Pioneer's ControlApp. The ControlApp has it's own controls for Pandora, Spotify, and internet radio giving you lots of choices.

Excellent sound via Airplay

Paul in Atlanta, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I wanted an Airplay speaker so that I could stream music to multiple rooms in my house simultaneously. We already have Apple TVs hooked up to speakers in several rooms, so I'd rather use the technology I already have instead of investing in a complete SONOS system. It was a bit complicated to get this hooked up to our wifi.

I love this speaker

A. Kemp, Amazon

  • Summary: I love this speaker. Setup was fairly easy. Works well. Only issue is that it goes into standby mode. I understand why it does that , but I still wish I didn't have to walk over and turn the speaker on every day.

Great Speaker would be 5 stars if it supported 802.11N, dual band or AC. (If you don't know what that means it is a 5 for you)

Austrian Kangaroo, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: This is a great speaker and I found it easy to manage and configure. It works great on WIFI, Ethernet or direct cable using DNLA or Airplay as well as Pioneers own Ethernet system. The only real issue I have is that it is 802.11G only. So Ok a few years back that would be ok but we are moving into the AC era for WiFI. If this supported N, let alone 2.4 and 5Ghz I would have said 5 stars. Speaker is sturdy, read HEAVY, and sounds good.

Good speaker with nice features... just add a sock.

DashDash, Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: I've had this speaker for 3 months. The setup / configuration instructions were a little complex for a consumer product. I got it working without incident. The speaker has a great mix of features. I took away one star due to the bass response of the speaker. The bass is overpowering and the speaker/software provides no means of tone control. Luckily, I came across another review that provided a low tech solution. "Put a sock in it." That's right...

Room-filling sound, AirPlay works great, but a bit bass heavy.

Melissa, Amazon
20 November 2013
  • Summary: At the current price of under $200, it's an amazing deal. Room-filling sound, and the AirPlay works perfectly with my iPhone once you get it set up on WiFi. Only down side is that it's very bass heavy--I stuck a sock in the vent in the back as others recommended.
