Customer Reviews

Very good speakers, nice sound.

Because of this the Sony S-AIR products are being sold very inexpensively right now.
James Witherspoon
They worked when I first set them up, but after about 20 minutes they stopped.

Overall, the reason I bought this set was because I was drawn in by the wireless feature of this system. It ultimately delivers on this aspect, but the product does have some shortcomings. Here are some pros and cons

PROS
- GREAT price offered on Amazon(one of the biggest pros...I think if you buy it from [...] Buy it is probably $250.
- The wireless speakers are pretty attractive and have a nice sleek, polished look
- Relatively easy to set up - if you just want to play from your PC directly
- Wireless signal is great; I put one upstairs in my room and there was no interference

CONS
- speaker quality is mediocre; namely, the bass power on these guys is weak - but it is expected. However, as long as your house isn't too large, the sound should travel well enough
- In order to play your iTunes playlists directly off the components themselves, need to spend some time setting up the system. Even when you do, the interface isn't really isn't as straightforward to use as I would have liked.
- Power outlets for each speaker unit are pretty large (minor)

Overall, decent product, but definitely not perfect; you get what you pay for!

Setup of system was pretty much as I expected. The sound was great and my wife loved it. Two days later she unplugged the transceiver and then replugged it in. It failed at that point. No light on the transceiver to indicate it hadn't paired.

I called Sony's customer service and they ran through the troubleshooting (which we already did!). They pushed us up to the next level and was told they would call back. A week later they still didn't call so I returned the product.

Seems kind of silly that they wouldn't figure it out quickly.

It is really nice to be able to walk around in my large apartment and hear my music! This is a really great item and easy to use. If you were like me, push the transmitter cartridge hard into the back, otherwise you'll think it's broken and doesn't work!
I really like this system and just bought another pair of wireless speakers that plug into the wall.
I would definetely recommend, the setup was so easy!

Before purchasing these, I was skeptical of their performance having had bad experiences with analog transmission systems. The quality of the transmission of this product is exceptional, however. I have a large 3600 sq ft, three level, house and the signal easily reaches all corners, including the garage. There is no interference from common noise sources like the microwave ovens, etc. I also agree with all the comments of the reviewer who said they look great but lack base response. I don't suffer too much from this deficiency listening to mostly jazz, soft-rock and classical. Considering a price of 100 bucks for two speakers, two remotes and the transceiver- I can't really complain about anything. In fact, I just ordered a second set!

For those interested, I'm 27, have a degree in computer science and am somewhat of an audiophile in the sense that I'll spend what it takes to get "good" sound. However, I'm also pretty reasonable and I wouldn't ever expect a wireless speaker set to outperform a wired 5.1 sound system.

Like everyone else, I wanted a speaker solution that would allow me to listen to music in multiple rooms without running any wire; namely, something to listen to while I cleaned my place or had get togethers with friends. Back in 2004 I bought some wireless headphones and overall, I was extremely dissapointed. Until now I've avoided all wireless-dependent hardware when it comes to sound. When it came to this product however, I was more than pleased.

1. The look.
Each speaker looks refined and current. The touch-sensative buttons are about as responsive as it gets and everything from changing tracks (yes you can change tracks from any given unit) to setting the time is intuitive and easy to do. Sony gives you a remote control with each unit and those, also, look clean and refined.

2. The performance.
These speakers won't blow you away with bass, but the sound is excellent - not just for a wireless speaker system, but for any speaker system. If you've ever had your car's stock stereo system replaced with a new deck and new speakers, that's how good these sound. Now unlike that car stereo system, you can't add an amp and a subwoofer with these, so you'll never reach that potential with these speakers, but they sound good. Also worth noting is that I tested a newly setup system of 4 speakers and when the songs are playing, paused, stopped, etc, I don't hear any static coming out of them. This is important to me and pretty impressive that it's accomplished here.

Note that discontinued Sony S-Air products are not out-of-the box compatible with newer Windows operating systems, but the Sony e-support site does offer a software update (S-AIR Cast software version 1.5.0 - just web search that and its the top result) which purports to make the product compatible with many newer Windows OS. However, this software update does not work as claimed (in my case, with Windows 7 Home Premium). If you are running Windows 7, or any 64-Bit OS, or don't know what the heck I am talking about, be wary as the software may not install. Which will hamper most (not all) of the product's functions like remote I-tunes controls, playing both your computer's speakers and these speakers at the same time, etc. Otherwise very easy hookup and slick look. Neat product, good price. Sound quality decent, not stellar.
