My primary reason for purchasing this was to have a small system in a room full of windows (that is, no place for mounted speakers) for listening to SiriusXM Radio, Pandora, or our iTunes libraries. I have a nice Logitech AirPlay speaker, which I love, in another room; the reviews of this model convinced me to try it. I had it playing satellite radio within minutes.
Set-up is easy, especially from an iOS device. After you plug the speaker in, you have to temporarily select the speaker as a Wi-Fi network, and then use the screen to set-up the speaker to connect with your home network. Once it's on the network, you can connect via any device on your network using AirPlay (or plugged directly into it.) I can play music from my iTunes library, from SiriusXM, from Pandora, from anything that steams over the network. The source can be upstairs, downstairs, or even in the basement, as long as the device and the speaker have a good Wi-Fi signals. Although the included remote control works well, we find it much easier to use our iPhones for quick access to both content and volume. Of course, if we want to access our full iTunes libraries, we have to do so from our computers. I unplug the speaker and carry it to another room without having to re-enter the network passcode. If your Wi-Fi signal strength is weak where you place it or if your internet strength pulses (that is, if the strength increases and decreases from moment to moment, thanks to ISP throttling), then expect the connection to drop out. If this is the case, do not get an AirPlay speaker system.
Because my wireless home network is reliable, I find an AirPlay speaker preferable to Bluetooth technology since I can boost the strength of my wireless network, if necessary, through extenders and a more powerful router, but I cannot improve Bluetooth range. If you have a small apartment, then a Bluetooth speaker might be more economical. Home owners/renters, however, will likely welcome the range and signal strength of AirPlay speakers such as this.
I'm really glad I bought this system, and my husband, who is the real audiophile in the family, is just as pleased with this solution to supplying music to a room with no space for wired speakers.
-- Debbie Lee Wesselmann
I have a mostly-Apple house: Time Capsule WiFi, a couple laptops, a media PC, and an Airport Express serving non-optical audio to an Onkyo receiver in my entertainment center. For a while I've been serving AirPlay audio from my laptop to the Express/Onkyo unit and enjoying great sound in my living room, controlled like any other source.
I decided I wanted to be able to do the same in my bedroom, so I bought this speaker and plugged it in. There is a little card that explains to you how to configure the unit: when it's first turned on, or when it's reset by holding down the power button, the unit makes a WiFi network of its own, named something like MC200Air, that you have to sign onto. Once you do, you go to a weird web address: http://192.168.1.13 - and lo and behold, there is the device's setup page. On that page, you tell it your home's WiFi network parameters - SSID, password, and encryption type (probably WPA2, these days), and you're good to go. (You can also rename the unit so it shows up as whatever you want in AirPlay destination menus; I love music, and I light the fires while the city sleeps, so I called my device "MC200ftJesus.")
After that, just sign off and wait a bit while the speaker talks to your WiFi hub. In my case, this took less than a minute. You can track the progress by observing the light on the power button; once it switches from red after reset, to orange during setup, to green (success!), it has signed on. It's now an AirPlay speaker and any MacOS or iOS device on your WiFi can stream audio to it, no problem. I have been using the device for a month and have yet to have any skips or dropouts - it's flawless. You even get to control the volume with a remote, which will adjust the device volume slider on the actual laptop or iPhone you're streaming from! (If you're watching from a Mac laptop, you can even option-click the speaker icon in your title bar and switch all the Mac Audio to the Airplay speaker, and now even your system beeps and Youtube audio will go to the speaker.)
There is a lag, about half a second, between what your laptop screen is showing and what the speaker is putting out, so you can't watch a movie this way - the sound won't be in sync with the video. That's the bad news. The good news is that all Airplay sources seem to lag an identical amount, so I can stream to my speaker in the bedroom and my entertainment center in the living room, and the subwoofer 'thump' from the living room carries upstairs!
Sound is good - the high end is a little sharp, a little crisp or even harsh compared to my Tannoy concentric monitors - and it gets quite loud, plenty to fill up any reasonable room. I have it atop a wooden dresser with the back near the wall and the sound fills the room. You don't find it on the Amazon page, but Consumer Reports reports that the device is stereo; I had to play 'EXP,' track 1 of Axis: Bold as Love, to be certain of this, as the stereo separation is not particularly powerful - but it definitely plays stereo. (In these days of mp3 'joint stereo', it's probably not even worth mentioning; no one has a true stereo source to play anyway.)
Well, is it true, Jimi? Yes: this speaker did just what I wanted, got me listening to my music catalog in my bedroom without any hassle or fuss, so I'd recommend it to AirPlay-enabled homes without any reservations!
