My 2 main disappointments upon plugging those in were:

1) Very poor sound quality, worse than pc speakers. This has nothing to do with signal reception - 1 feet away from the transmitter and the signal seemed strong with no interference. The sound is just muffled, similar to what you hear from those cheap tiny iphone speakers that sell for a few bucks.

2) Discovering these do not support stereo sound. Now, I know I should have paid more attention and noticed 'stereo' is not mentioned anywhere in the product description. I simply assumed that since the speakers were shipping in pairs and due to their popularity and price, that they must be stereophonic.

To conclude, there is simply no enjoyment to be had with this set. It feels like you've gone 30 years back in time in terms of music experience. Whatever advantage wireless brings in, goes away when the first few notes play.

If you care anything at all about the quality of sound you listen to, don't get these speakers. If wireless is a must, get something more expensive, preferably from a different company. I recommend you look for "stereo" in the product description and read all the 1 star reviews. If I was less compulsive, I would've been spared this purchase.

I have used RCA wireless speakers for years. They're not perfect, but they do a decent job. I thought I would go with speakers with a more modern look, but these were not the speakers to buy. Buzz and static. That's what I got. You also have to adjust the volume on each speaker manually, and most of the time you can't really change the volume. Plus the volume seems to go in and out like waves of loud followed by waves of quiet. This was a total waste of my money.

Ordered this system 9/19/2010, which after ordering, were informed that it was backordered. After waiting 2-3 months it arrived. Being to cold to set it up, we waited til it warmed up. We had an electrical outlet professionally installed for each of the 4 speakers on our patio. When we mounted 2 speakers, we decided to test them. There was a lot of interference mixed in with the music. We were not able to get rid the interference. In the description, they site that the docking station can be used inside with the speakers outside up to 150 feet away. We found they did not work well with the docking station inside or out. When we moved around the patio the signal would change from bad to worse. We recommend that you do not purchase this item.

I read quite a few reviews before purchasing this product. As promised, it was relatively easy to set up and use. However, the sound quality was so poor, even after using the auto tune feature with all speakers less than 15 feet away from the transmitter, that I did not enjoy listening to it at all. It had a sort of hollow, weak sound with a little bit of flutter in the volume. And the signal frequently faded slightly, occasionally with some static even though I was not using batteries. Finally, both the remote and manual volume control for each speaker seemed to go from "too low" to "blasting you out of your chair" with nothing in between. I was terribly disappointed, especially since it wasn't exactly inexpensive... though I would most definitely call it CHEAP.

This is our second set of this speaker system, the first one having not survived a recent vicious storm, after three years of service in our back yard. If you are looking for top quality sound, these are not the speakers for you. But if you are looking for a serviceable set of wireless speakers that produce "outdoor BBQ" quality sound these fit the bill. The remote is nice for adjusting volume to fit the conversation levels around the speakers. For the price, they are a good reliable system. We did not experience the interference problems mentioned in other reviews and our base is proximate to a full wireless home office, including wireless router, printers, server and workstations.Our first set lived outside under our open porch roof for their entire three years. We just plugged an iPod into the base and turned the speakers on whenever we went outside, never bothering to bring them in when the weather was bad.

I have purchased five of these speakers in less than two years. I am a senior citizen and do not play sound full volume and have used speakers only occasionally (certainly not daily). After the first speaker passed the one year warranty period it developed horrible static and noise problems. I contacted Cables Unlimited and was told that the speaker could not be repaired and speaker was out of warranty, and they recommended buying new, which I did and purchased two more. Again, after the warranty period expired the speakers developed static and noise problems which made them unusable. i was told by Cables Unlimited that the manufacturer does not supply parts to repair the speakers and to look for a repair shop (which may or may not be able to fix the speakers) or buy new. Now, I have three unusable speakers that cannot just be discarded in the trash. As an environmentally concerned consumer, I abhor this waste and hopefully anyone thinking of purchasing these speakers will think twice about doing so given my experience. I just can't afford to keep purchasing new speakers after making these high price purchases and only getting probably less than a year's usage from them.

These speakers use an analog RF link. They pick up a lot of interference resulting in a lot of static in the sound output. Its completely unbearable. These speakers are not cheap enough to justify this poor sound quality.

Warning--monural sound system, despite having 2 speakers and a stereo input plug. Possibly the worst piece of electronics I have ever purchased online.

I have tried hooking these up both indoors and out, from 10 feet to 50 feet away but no matter what I try the sound is awful and there is a ton of interference. The auto tune does very little to improve things and changing the channel only means slightly less static. In addition it is not a real ipod dock, it only plugs into your headphone jack and will not charge your ipod.

My friend was having a wedding and wanted to play some back round music while everyone was socializing.These speakers were the perfect thing we were looking for. During the time these were on sale at Costco for about $120 so we got them. We had already had 2 of the speakers that we got from Kohls which were a different brand but still worked, 900Mhz. When the speakers are plugged into a outlet, the quality is great and so is the range. What is good is that you can toss some batteries into them(we had six speakers and they take 6 batteries each, do the math haha) and they will work wirelessly. The dock also takes 4 AA batteries. The quality is not the best with batteries in them, limited to about 50-75 feet, but still worked for what we needed. Now we have them in our living room and the main dock is connected to the tv and the speakers are all around the room and they work really great. They are the easiest thing to set up. All you do is plug the speaker into the wall or toss in some batteries and then connect the transmitter to the tv and it all works. So if you are looking for some good speakers but dont want the Bose price, then i would recommend you getting these and you will love them.

***PROS***
-They have good sound quality for the price
-You get 4 speakers
-Ipod dock which can be connected to the tv or other device
-Remote which powers the speakers and controls the volume
-Can be battery operated
-Wireless. Just plug into an ipod and your ready to go
-Wall mount ready. Just put 2 screws into the wall and hook the speaker up
-Can be placed in different rooms of the house

***CONS***
-Annoying blue light(can be covered up with black tape)
-Lots of "C" batteries needed so you don't have to have it plugged into the wall
-Signal strength is lowed with using batteries
-Sometimes they turn off when not in us. Pain to turn them all back on and then have to turn up the volume
-One of the speakers likes to make a static noise some times. I can be sitting on the couch and if I move my head a little forward then it makes the noise, I move it back, the noise stops. And about 10 min after I turn the tv off, that speaker likes to make one final good bye static noise.

Design- 5 stars
They are all black, but they do come in different color(black, pink, and white). It almost has a 360 speaker, but the mounting space in the back takes up some room. Then the bass is on the top. The remote is nice to have too, but you have to point it at each speaker to change the volume or turn it on or off. They have a blue LED light, which can be bright and annoying sometimes but you get use to it or you can put a piece of black tape over it too.

Quality- 4 stars
The sound works for what is needed of them. They have good sound when connected to a outlet, but when the batteries are in the quality goes down. They can get very loud if you have a lot of them together. Or you can place them around the house to listen to music in different room. Some times we have one in our kitchen to listen to the tv while we cook and eat (comes in handy).

Overall- 4 stars
They work for what you need and are great to have when ever you are having a party or just want to crank up the music. They are weather proof too.
If this review was helpful to you, plase like it. Thanks!
