Product Description

More music. Less wires.
The iReciever by AirMobi is a small, lightweight Wi-Fi powerhouse capable of turning virtually any old wired speakers into a wireless bass-thumpin’ system. Thanks to a powerful antenna structure, the iReceiver can stream MP3, AAC, WAV and Flac content at speeds up to 150Mbps. Measuring just 2.9” x 1.69” x 0.7”, it connects to your mobile devices via Wi-Fi and to your speakers by audio cable, and can be tucked away quite inconspicuously.

WiFi. Way extended.
Suffering from a weak Wi-Fi signal in certain portions of the house? Press the WPS button on the AirMobi iReceiver to easily connect to other Wi-Fi routers and substantially extend the range of your existing Wi-Fi network. It supports IEEE 802.11 b/g/n network standards, making it compatible with most of today’s home networks.

Plays well. And plays nice.
Not only does the AirMobi iReceiver allow you to wirelessly play, control and listen to your music on your home speaker system, you can also use it to stream to your favorite pair of headphones or your car stereo system. What’s more, it plays nice with most popular mobile devices and OS platforms. The iReceiver is fully compatible with iOS, Android, Mac and Windows, and supports Apple AirPlay and DLNA. Your purchase also includes the free iPhone, iPad & Android apps that make setup and control super easy.

Better tech. For clearer techno.
The AirMobi iReceiver utilizes advanced soft decoding technology for more clarity of transmitted music. Music styles like techno and trance that are often prone to distortion when streamed over wireless networks sound fantastic when they pass through the iReceiver.

What you get out of the iReceiver may depend on what you put into it. It also depends on what device type you want it to play from.

Setup, if you have the ability to use WPS, is pretty easy. Press WPA on the iReceiver and on your router. They should connect. Once configured, you can download the app from the App Store or Google Play (no Windows Phone options).

Setup, if you DON'T have WPS capability, or if you want to change settings such as NOT synchronizing access point names (SSID), then it can be... fun. Not many of the settings are explained in the manual - the manual seems clearly designed for those that want WPS and simple one button setup, which works OK, IF you have WPS.

In order to configure this for my network, and not use the default WPS settings, I connected to it w/ my iPhone via the default Access Point name. Once connected, I went to the device's web page and logged in according to the manual. Once there, I fumbled through the settings and thought I changed the SSID. On reboot, it kept my normal network's SSID (not cool, since I don't want to connect to this device by default given it is slower than my router's wi-fi). Here's where you would be expected to know what the check box "synchronism" means. Unchecking that allowed me to name the device's SSID differently. I then input my current Wi-Fi settings, rebooted the device and connected with my phone. I could then browse the Internet and do Internet streaming, to the iReceiver. This is the important part. If you aren't doing Internet music streaming, you don't necessarily need Internet access from the receiver as long as you install the app on your phone/tablet, or if you connect your Windows/Mac device to the SSID and use it as DLNA.

This is a pretty "cool" little device (and very lightweight) if sound quality is important to you. That's the big reason for getting this over a Bluetooth audio receiver. Bluetooth quality is lacking compared to the uncompressed quality that can be transmitted through the method that this device uses. Of course your sound source has to be good enough to tell the difference.

I have to knock a star off for complexity, however, and the lacking manual.

FIRST TRY

To use this device, I connected my iPad mini to its WiFi network (AirMobi_XXXXXX), then went to 192.168.8.8 to set it up. The first problem I ran into is that it wanted a username and password but the manual said to only use the default password "admin", which didn't work because it also wanted a username. Fortunately using "admin" for both the username and password got me in.

The 2nd problem was that I was using the Chrome browser on my iPad and it didn't work right with the web interface provided by the iReceiver. Using Safari worked better. I then ran the setup to connect to my "real" WiFi and rebooted... unfortunately it rebooted running a network with the same SSID as my real WiFi network. I then decided to use the "reset" feature and found a small paperclip to press the reset button on the device. I was now able to start over using my "new knowledge".

SECOND TRY

I ran the setup wizard again, this time unchecking the "Synchronism SSIS" option so it wouldn't use the same SSID as my "real" WiFi network. It then asked me for an SSID and I used the default AirMobi_XXXXXX. It then rebooted and I made sure the iPad was still connected to it. It was, by my Internet access wasn't working so I disconnected and reconnected to AirMobi_XXXXXX. That worked.

I like the music received - it worked on both I-devices and android devices both. Thankfully I'd set up another wifi received previously as this was a little touchy, but with a little experimenting it set up and worked well. I did find it dropped my device occasionally but not sure if that was the receiver or other outside interference I could not discover. I found this worked great with the speakers I have, and the sound was clear and crisp. As for the wifi range extender, this was the very best part of the product. I find we have an area of the house that seems to be difficult to get wifi to. This device strengthened the wifi signal enough to make it much easier to move about freely. The product is small enough to pack into a laptop bag when staying in a motel with weak signals, and yet sturdy enough not to worry about damaging it. Overall I was happy and pleased with the product, just wish the setup was a little less quirky. I figured it out but not sure someone less experienced could set it up without having help - like my husband.

If you have an older stereo system or powered speakers and you want to connect them via wifi, this is the way to go.

I have another wireless receiver product using Bluetooth but this is better because the quality of the stream of this is better than Bluetooth. Basically what you do is you add this to your home network, you connect this to your non-wireless stereo or powered speakers, then you stream your music via a smart phone or laptop. So music-->iReceiver-->speakers.

There were two things I did not like about this iReceiver. One was that the instructions were not that good. I had to fiddle around with it quite a bit before I got it to connect. I'm not sure if that's my fault or the instructions, so I'm not going to mark it down. But I managed to connect the iReceiver to my home network using a Chromebook and smartphones using the downloaded app.

The second thing that I didn't like was that it needed an external power source. A small deal but it meant another connection to make. I tried it with both an external battery and plugging it to my Chromebook. I've found that if your power source doesn't work, it will show a purple light.

What I did like about it was that once the connection was made, the quality of the music was good and it was easy to use. I've only tried this using a smartphone and a Chromebook but you can just as easily use a tablet, iPad, laptop, desktop or anything that connects to your home network. And the iReceiver is small and compact, it won't get in the way.

Overall, it's a very convenient device and if you have any old system that doesn't have wifi, this is something very good and useful to have. A sample was provided by the marketer for review purposes.
