Works great so far!
on February 12, 2013
Keep in mind I've only had this for a few hours, but really like it so far.
I'm fairly technical, so I had no problems setting it up. It defaults to its own network, so you join it with your computer, configure it to your home network, then listen.
I listen mostly to Pandora via a Mac while I work at home in the kitchen. Even streamed music like Pandora sounds very good on it. Bass is good but not over-powering. Clear sound otherwise.
In two hours of listening, I have not had one audio drop, but I do have a robust network. Rarely do I have those kind of problems.
I like the size, it's very unassuming on my kitchen baker's rack and.....NO LIGHTS THAT I CAN SEE! I really hate it that so many devices these days have these bright blue lights on them. I don't use it in the bedroom, but I have so many other devices I have to cover up in my bedroom, it's annoying. I like sleeping in the dark.
So simple. Volume knob on top, but it seems to sync with your Airplay device. So you can turn it down at the speaker, or turn it down at your Airplay device and each device seems to know the volume has changed. No chance of turning it up too loud by accident.
Do not think this can take the place of major speakers in a large room, but I really like it for casual listening in the kitchen while I work or cook.
I plan to purchase two more of these, one for the bathroom while I shave and get ready for work, and another for the garage while I work out there. May also get one for the bedroom. I use a great program called Airfoil on my Mac which allows me to stream any sound source on my Mac, to multiple speakers around the house. Thus, I can stream Pandora, or Spotify to every room where I have these speakers, or Apple TVs.
Superior to Bluetooth for providing whole house stereo. I think Bluetooth is OK if you use only one device, but pairing with multiple devices is annoying. Don't have to do that with these.
So, 5 stars so far!
UPdate 4/22/2013 - Has been working pretty much perfect since I got it. I am going to purchase another.
