My IPhone 5 does not work in air play mode after updating to the new IPhone OS. Will there be an update from Klipsch to correct this? Oct 8, 2013
Has this issue been rectified? I also have an iP5 running iOS7 (new OS) and am considering buying the G-17.
Will this work with an iPhone 6 running iOS 8? I've heard that there can be firmware problems when connecting to the newer iPhones. Has anyone successfully gotten it to work? Oct 19, 2014
There's big problem with is, and it's software. Klipsch published an IOS 8 friendly G-17 app; but they didn't tell anyone! The old version doesn't work with IOS8. The The new version is in the APP Store, it's called KLIPSCH AIR. Download and toss the old app. Works great! Same old sorry-ass set-up routine. Spread the word:collect Karma. Klipsch sure didn't.
Tried to set up by using the Klipsch app but the wireless blue LED never turns solid at the end. Using AirPort extreme: can't change wireless mode. Aug 12, 2014
We've had similar issues where we keep losing wireless connection. Worked great for about a month then started giving us intermittent issues. Have tried many times to remedy but still having issues. Not a happy customer. One thing that worked intermittently was unplugging the unit for a minimum of 30 minutes then powering it back on. Sometimes, only sometimes, does that allow it to connect back to the network.
Will this unit play music pre-stored on a 'USB' storage device ? i.e. , as a 'stand-alone' ? Sep 11, 2013
I haven't tried that, but I don't think that it will. I think it only plays with Apple (AirPlay enabled) devices. I tried connecting my Android phone via USB and the phone couldn't interpret what to do with the speaker. I'm sure I could connect my Android phone via the audio aux input without issue though.
I have the same question as I would like to send one to my parents in Europe. Does anyone know the answer? Also, Can you play the same music through airplay on more that one unit simultaneously? (If I had one in different rooms, would they all play the same thing I launch ?)
How does this unit compare to the Sonos system? Jul 3, 2013
Sonos is very good, however, the Klipsch is amazing. Better snatch it up. Audiovox is buying Klipsch. Audiovox is pure garbage and if they can't hold up to the high quality that Klipsch is known for, the Klipsch name will plummet. Hopefully there will be no change in quality.
I have the Grace Solo Radio for Pandora and internet radio. I don't use ITunes or any Apple products. Will the G-17 speaker work for me? Aug 21, 2013
You can plug it in via alternate input sources, but it won't be wireless. If you don't use a source that streams Airplay, you will have to physically connect it with a cable.
Have all the kinks with iPhone 5 and iOS 7.0 been worked out? Will it connect easily from my computer, a Macbook Pro 2010 running Maverick OS? Nov 22, 2013
I used this speaker with the 4S when the iOS had been out for a long time. I know things change, but I had constant issues of music cutting out for 5-30 seconds, and at times minutes. Seems to me like a poor design. I am not questioning the sound, it's wonderful, but when I pay anything over $50 for something (within reason), I expect it to function with at least 95% reliability of proper functioning. With this speaker I had 95% reliability that within 10-20 min it would start malfunctioning. I guess that's still technically reliability...
