Here's a summary of my experience (yours may vary)
Connectivity needs: USB for Power and 3.5 mm for stereo audio (you need to supply the audio cable or adapter which varies by application)
Sound Quality: 5 of 5 stars
Technical Difficulty in setting it up: 5 of 5 (for me) - 3 out of 5 stars possible for a non tech-savvy person*
Functionality: 5 of 5 stars.
*This device requires "some setting up" that a non-savvy person may find challenging, if not frustrating. Fortunately, Amazon provided instructions for it which can be found at the bottom of the product page. The product I received required a firmware upgrade which can be found here: [...]
After which, I was able to set my own SSID and apply security settings so no one connects to it without my knowledge.
Bottom Line: I am very happy
Side Note: I would like to thank all the friendly folks here who provided their useful input.
After following the instructions to update the firmware and using it for a few days, I started experiencing these symptoms under the following versions. Your experience may vary but here's mine unfortunately.
v.2.0.4 - Hi-Fidelity audio, frequent audio drops
v.2.0.5 - No Audio drop but discernible lower quality audio (not good)
Action: I have contacted support today.Read more ›
I was in the market to move from Bluetooth/factory stereo to Airplay/aftermarket stereo and considered this among an apple airport express and the tplink. Being the cheapest of the options I was skeptical of this device but have been completely impressed by it since I got it and updated the firmware to the 207 release. This is important as I understand that the older versions of the firmware had inferior sound quality and left a lot to be desired in the low frequency spectrum. I had no idea how bad my Bluetooth streaming quality was until I heard the difference with this device since bt had been my default option for so many years. I did a test before my car stereo install with the airplay going into the factory stereo and switched between that and Bluetooth just to get a baseline and I am so glad I made the switch.
The device boots and is ready to join within around 33 seconds which is faster than airport express but still I was worried that was going to be too long. It’s not. Pretty much as soon as I turn on my car and put on my seat belt and grab my phone to pick out some music, it’s ready to go. For reference though, this is about 20 seconds longer that my bt connection took to auto pair and auto play my music. The disadvantage of Airplay is that it will not autoplay your music. You will have to choose the sabrent manually as your output stream each time you connect it since this is a limitation of Apple’s implementation of Airplay. This is not a show stopper but wanted to point it out.Read more ›
Then, one would ask why a 3 stars rating. Here is the why: this device is actually a WiFi router with AirPlay/DLNA capability. Few reviewers have complained earlier that once one connected his/her iOS or Android device to the Sabrent WiFi Audio Receiver, he/she will loss the access to other AirPlay/DLNA devices on his/her home network (WiFi or Wired). By connecting Sabrent WiFi Audio Receiver to your WiFi network, you will regain full access to other AirPlay/DLNA devices on your home network and streaming from cloud sources w/o using your cellular data network.
1. Using the web browser on a device connected to the Sabrent WiFi Audio Receiver and type in the IP address of Sabrent WiFi Audio Receiver: 192.168.168.1
2. Select your Home WiFi network SSID and enter your WiFi network password
3. If the connection is successful, you will see something like "WLAN: your_home_WiFi_SSID connected" and then you are all set
WARNING: By default, the Sabrent WiFi Audio Receiver has its wireless security disabled.Read more ›
